My Take on MAC Pro Blush “Apple Red”
I’m here with my first MAC review on ETM and am excited to share the most wonderful product I tried last year and it’s a PRO BLUSH – APPLE RED. I was collecting them madly last year but this year didn’t pick any, guess MAC has reached its saturation point and I wonder why they are increasing their prices every passing day?
Shade – APPLE RED is a PRO Blush and hence can only be purchased from PRO store and we have one in Mumbai. I picked mine long back and trust me it is the most stunning pinkish red blush I have seen in MAC till date. It has soft sheen to it due to SATIN FINISH and that makes it wonderful product for medium to dark skin tone. As the description says, it is truly a FIRE ENGINE RED which is very flattering on cheeks but scary in pan.
Texture – The texture is awesome, smooth and creamy and needs a slight touch to get the colour on brush. I have attached a picture of brush I use for this blush and you can see in picture how slight the shade is and still it gave a nice flush of colour on cheeks. It is from SATIN FINISH and hence has a soft sheen to it and you can see that on cheeks if you look closely.
Pigmentation – INSANE is not the word, trust me! It is maddening to use this with blush brush and hence I always prefer a fan brush for this.
Staying power – The blush stays nicely without fading and losing its charm for 8 plus hours and then it fades slightly. I always remove it with good makeup remover to take off the colour.
Packaging – I have this in refill pan which can be stored in empty blush refill pan or else a magnetic palette like INGLOT have.
