My love for red blushes blossomed with NYX rouge cream blush 07 red cheeks and I guess now we both are in long term commitment to not to part with each other .But as I am not a faithful to particular makeup product I don’t know whether I will fulfill my commitment albeit since six months or so I have loved it to bits..Hopefully! I am not going to dump this one for another blush like I always do
Meet MAC Frankly Scarlet
- Price – INR 1350 for 6gms
- Packaging -Like all MAC blushes this too comes in a MAC trade mark black round circular plastic packaging with a see through cap on it.
Frankly scarlet is certainly not for faint hearted as its too bright a shade but if you love and trust MAC for its blending and texture I suggest to try it once especially those who are above NC 40.All I take care while wearing this blush is toning down my eye makeup and lipstick shade.
MAC describes Frakly scarlet as vivid rose-red and shade reminds me of crushed strawberries which have been strained ,soaked under then sun, powdered and then housed in a pan.Blush is extremely pigmented and one need a very light hand or best will be to use it with a fan brush or MAC 187 duo fiber to get the pretty flushed look.
It’s a matte tomato red blush with pink undertones.Lighter the complexion more pink it will appear on your skin.Below you can see my finger swatch and this much of the blush is more than enough as little goes a long way.Blending is easy with this because of its smooth texture and one can easily over do with it.You can have a light reddish pink blush or even brighter as per your liking by building up the pigmentation.
MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush Swatches:-
One can use this blush as an eyeshadow shade also especially for bridal looks.It comes out really pretty.I must show some eye makeup looks with this in upcoming post .
and here how it looks on me ..Oops! I cropped the pic too much i guess .Blush stays for five -six hours and i love using it this winter to fake that natural pinkish red cheeks which one gets in extreme winters.
What I like about MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush:-

- Price – 4/5
