while this is not my HG blush (pink cult is) i do love this blush i get a great bright pink flush.:]
Product: I went into MAC knowing I definitely wanted this shade after seeing all the great reviews online and even though the SA kept trying to push other blushes such as the Quite Cute LE's I'm glad I stood my ground! I have been looking for a shade like this for a long time. It is buildable, meaning you get a great pop with one swirl but if, like me, you like to have pink, doll-like cheeks, this is achievable too. Fades throughout the day but still noticeable.
Packaging: Standard black MAC package, no complaints
Price: Kind of expensive, but you get a lot for your money.
Overall: Would buy again.
Easy to apply on and gives a healthy pink to the cheeks.
Pink Swoon is a very bright pink color. I like it but you must use a light hand because it's very bright on my light skin tone. I have a very fair skintone and I use this almost every time I go out. Its sheertone but buildable! Almost out of mine, I will repurchase it. I do find it fades a little during the day though and I do have to reapply
I have fair skin and it is hard trying to find a blusher shade to suit my skin tone. It provides a very sheer pinkish colour on cheeks with one swipe of the brush. The look is really very natural for me.
On times when I want to intensify the blush colour, I'll just swirl my blusher brush on the product more and slowly build the colour on my cheeks. Hence, the intensity of the shade is controlled and I'm able to achieve the look I want!!
Surface area of the product is pretty wide/large thus makes it easier to swirl the brush around to pick up the colour.
I'm glad to find a shade that suits me!
My favorite blush ever! Im very very fair(NC15) dark hair, dark eyes.
I love this wash of color. The transparency is perfect but it really stays put on my combo skin type. Looks great day and night. I usually contour with a very light bronzer(MAC Personal Style blush), then put Pink Swoon on the apples of my cheeks. Awesome formula!
This is my favorite blush by MAC :) so I of course don't have much downfalls with this. The color is a beautiuful bubblegum pink, but it goes on quite sheer, so it is not overpowering at all! It gives you that perfect Kim Kardashian pink cheek, her and her sisters love blush as you may know. The one problem I have with this is that it does not last very long, I take it in my makeup bag to re touch through the day/evening or maybe I just love blush too much :D I don't know! Overall, a great blush! Now I want to try well dressed! :)
I got given this blush, and I was a little scared when I first saw the colour. How wrong was I? I adore it, it's sheer enough to wear for the school run without looking like I'm too 'done', I think it makes me looks like I've been doing something energetic, yet still dainty. Big fan here.
This is my "I went for a run this morning" blush. It's natural looking and matte so hard to overdo and as it's a sheertone blush. It's also not too cool on my NC25 skin tone, but I'd say that my face is quite beige/olive rather than yellow. I've heard that some people think this is bright, but I think it is quite a mellow kind of colour. I have Salsarose (PRO colour) which is definitely a pop of colour in comparison.
I would definitely recommend this to cooler complexions and if you are warmer, then still try it out at the counter, you might be like me and really like it.
I thought I loved well dressed until I got this. Im nw20 and although I love them both I like pink swoon a little more. I thought it was too bright and would look garish on me...WRONG. Its beautiful, really. Don't let the color in the pan scare you.
