MAC Matte Powder Blush Melba Swatch and Review
My Experience with MAC Melba:
Lets have a close look at the blush.
This is not the first time I am using a matte blush but MAC Melba is really a matte-matte blush if you know what I mean.The texture is smooth and its highly pigmented for a color as mute as this.
If you compare MAC Melba to MAC Peaches blush then this is less coral and more peach that the later.However this is not very easy to blend.If you start with a heavy hand then it kind of gets patchy when you are blending it.So I would suggest use a light hand and build it up as per you need but very slowly.
Here is the swatch on my hand.
As you can see, the line is clearly visible on the blended picture. Another thing I noticed is it kind of turns a shade dark(more coral I mean!) when it comes in contact with the warm skin which is again quite visible on the above pic.So I will again tell you to go slow with this one. This may not be a difficult shade to wear but melba definitely needs a good hand in blending or you may still manage to look all muddy.
I hope its visible to you all.Camera somehow was not picking it up properly on the face and let me tell you I had loads of it for this pic actually. 😛 So the good point is, it will look really good on picture even if you have put on a bit too much. 😉 Just have to be careful that its daytime and nobody is gonna use Flash on you. 😛
Now you may all feel that I do not like this one much but even after the blending issue it has, I love it.
