This post is dedicated to Shweta…Y you ask? Coz this is what she sent me as my Mommy Gift!! Yeps..while I got tons of gifts for my baby, Shwe knowing I’m a blush-o-holic, sent me this MAC blush called Salsa Rose .. Thanks a ton babe! Thanks to you, I have a new, sizzling shade in my collection now..
- Packaging: Apparently, Pro shades only come in refills instead of full pans. These do fit into regular MAC blush palette as well though since they are the same size.
- Color: MAC describes it as lightly iridescent coral in a satin finish. However, I find it to be an out n out raspberry shade.
- Price: INR 1150
- Pigmentation: One word.. ‘INTENSE’ . If any of you have swatched MAC Frankly scarlett, then you’d understand what I mean by this. One dip or swipe brings out enough product to apply on both cheeks and then some.
- Staying Power: This stays forever n ever n ever…I actually need a makeup remover to banish all signs of this.
I love this shade. Since Dec/Jan I have been obsessing over raspberry shades and this is one of the best I have come across till date. In fact, this was the blush I wore on my first outing post-Pravi (yea..now my life has been split into 2 parts..pre-Pravi n post-Pravi) and it made me feel rejuvenated and super-sexy!!
As I mentioned above, this has a superb staying power which I guess is the USP of all Pro blushes. The intensity may wear off a tiny bit, but the raspberry tint stays on till you remove it. Also, it’s a satin finish blush so it doesn’t have any shimmer which makes it a wearable shade during the day as well.
MAC Pro Blush in Salsa Rose Swatches:-
I love this blush like crazy and have even worn it while sitting at home all day just for the heck of it other than the fact that it isn’t available anywhere other than a MAC Pro Store, I find absolutely no downside to this formula.
Here’s how it looks on me… I’ve used it lightly so as to look glowy and natural instead of OTT
Have you tried any Pro blushes? What has your experience been?
