MAC - 'Peachykeen' ♥

I have been lusting after a peach toned blush for a long time now and initially went to my local MAC store to find 'Pinch O' Peach', however, I was left disappointed, twice. I was told the second time that this blush wouldn't be coming back into stock in the store so I decided to opt for something quite similar in terms of colour. I wasn't too keen on 'Peachykeen' in it's pot (no pun intended!), it looked darker than I what I wanted but when I swatched it on my hand it really won me over. It's actually a lot lighter than it appears and as it is a sheertone shimmer blush it has a gorgeous shimmer effect which is great for highlighting the cheekbones. I wear this blush now almost everyday and am such a fan of the colour. It lasts all day for me and the shimmer effect is really beautiful when it's captured by light but this may not be for people who prefer a matte look. It's a great, versatile blush colour which can be worn with a whole host of different makeup looks. It is super blendable so doesn't look over the top even if you apply more than you should have. I'm glad to have this blush part of my makeup collection  and even if I am still secretly lusting after 'Pinch O' Peach' this is a good alternative for all the peach toned lovers.

Stay pretty people!



  1. Such a pretty shade! I love mac blushers as well :)

  2. I have this blush. It was used on me in a Mac makeover and I really wouldn't have looked at it twice before as it seemed so dark. I really love it!

    1. Yeah it seems so much darker in the pot, similar to Fleur Power but when on it's so light and lovely xo

  3. My all-time favourite Mac blush is a really similar shade called Foolish me which they discontinued in this country a while ago. I'm going to have to check this out, it looks like a great alternative :)
