Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous blush from MAC ~ Sheertone blush in shade Pinch Me.
Price : Rs 1350 for 6 g
My take on the Product
MAC blush Pinch Me is a sheertone blush and is part of the permanent range. It comes in the regular black MAC Packaging with a transparent cover with no mirror/applicator.
Pinch Me has a sheer, matte finish formula. It needs a little bit of layering to show up well on the skin since the formula is quite sheer which makes it easy to use for beginners. The blush surface feels smooth to touch with no powderiness or fall out in the pan. It feels easy to blend and since it needs layering, blending is not an issue. It wears well on me for 6-7 hours over foundation and doesn’t get patchy/uneven as it fades. Formula-wise, it is excellent but as a matter of preference, I like more pigmented blushes. If you’re someone who doesn’t normally wear blush and is afraid of going overboard with color on the cheeks, a sheer blush like this would be perfect.
Pinch Me is described as a ‘dirty rose coral‘ by MAC and its a pretty accurate description. On my skin, it leans more coral than rose but there is a definite hint of pink there. Because of its rosy tone, it doesn’t look muddy on my skin tone. The underlying earthy tinge makes this a great blush for dusky beauties. I think this is one of the most underrated blushes from MAC especially when it comes to blushes for Indian skin. I like the fact that the formula is matte so one doesn’t need to worry about shimmer enhancing pores and imperfections. Since it looks quite warm on me, I like pairing it with warmer lipsticks, especially warm leaning reds. I’d definitely recommend this shade to everyone looking for a nice warm toned blush!
The GOOD about MAC Blush Pinch Me :
- Smooth texture
- No fall out, powdery-ness in the pan
- Color can be built up in layers
- Easy to blend
- Wears well for 6+ hours
- Balanced shade – doesn’t look too warm/muddy on the skin
The NOT-SO-GOOD about MAC Blush Pinch Me :
- I prefer more pigmented blushes (just a personal preference!)
MAC Pinch me is one of those pretty dusty shades that give a very balanced color to the cheeks – they are neither too warm nor too cool. On my medium skin, Pinch me is a rose tinged dusty coral that pairs beautifully with warm pink, red and coral lipsticks. The formula is sheer with a matte finish which makes is versatile and easy to use by beginners. I think this blush would be exceptionally beautiful on dusky skin!
