I know that the word “obsessed” gets thrown around a lot in the beauty blogging world. It probably irritates you as much as it irritates me but, that being said, I am becoming a little concerned with my inability to use a blush other than MAC Melba. I have a quite large collection of fantastic blushes in a variety of shades, hues, finishes and formats, but in the last 2 months I’ve really only reached for something other than Melba a handful of times. I think you’ll agree with me though that this is basically the perfect blush.
The MAC website describes Melba as a “soft coral peach” which I think is fairly accurate. I also think that this is a great “starter orange” blush. It isn’t crazy, it reads as a subtle sunkissed glow on the skin and just adds a beautiful amount of warmth without being in your face. If you love the bronzed or tanned look this blush is a necessity. If you like peach blush this is a necessity. If you can’t decide what blush to pair with your purple eyeshadow, this is a necessity. Basically go get this. Right now. In fact, if I had to choose between Melba and Warm Soul, I would choose Melba even though Warm Soul is gorgeous. See! Obsessed! It’s a problem! I would ask for help going on a detox but I don’t actually want to stop using Melba blush.
MAC Powder Blush is sold for $22.00 and can be purchased online or at MAC counters.
Do you have Melba? I’m particular interested to know what you think of this blush if you have cool toned skin.
- This week man…I don’t even know. I normally work an 8 hour day and today was the first day this week that was less than 12 hours. I don’t even know which way is up anymore.
- I purchased the Jem and the Holograms eyeshadow palette and it’s delightful! I feel so neon and 80’s!
