Review of MAC Cantaloupe by psychoexgirlfriend
MAC Pro's website describes this as a "Rich warm cantaploupe [sic] (Satin)". This is a recently released product. It has been sold out from my store since the day it was released but luckily I finally got my grubby lil' hands on one.
Colour: The picture shown online is about two shades lighter than the actual product, however the tone is very accurate. As MAC's description says, this is a very warm peach blush. Wearing it on my C35 Asian skin, it is a natural peach, not gaudy or garish at all. The colour is yellow based and thus helps to minimize the redness on my cheeks without foundation applied underneath.
Texture & Pigmentation: This blush is smooth and quite creamy feeling actually. MAC describes this as a Satin and I quite agree. It looks glowy on my cheeks but certainly not frosty by any means. It is quite pigmented, meaning I only need to swipe my brush on it once per cheek. However, it is not so pigmented that it looks unnatural on my skin.
Lasting power: This blush lasts well enough. If I apply it in the morning before work, it's still there by lunch. But the end of the day, it is quite faded. However, that's more than enough lasting power for me.
Overall: I am quite surprised by this blush. MAC blushes usually don't do it for me. I am a diehard NARS fan. However, this blush lives up the best NARS blushes in terms of color, pigment and texture. I would definitely buy again.
