MAC Cheek Pollen Blush Review
MAC launched “CHEEK POLLEN” A limited edition shade 2 years back and I was dying to pick it for the longest time and I still remember have asked SA’s here in India many a times but sadly they never launched this shade in India . A friend of mine was coming from US and that is how I ordered this shade as I was badly in need of a natural looking blush, if you know of any dupe please do share here.
Price- $ 22 plus tax for 6Gm, Available at MAC cosmetics online
My Experience with MAC Cheek Pollen Blush
Shade- MAC Cheek Pollen blush is very natural looking warm toned medium to dark brown shade with soft fine sheen to it as it is from satin finish, the sheen lends a light glow to your face , I find this very flattering plus if you are scared of fun shades this is beautiful color to have in your stash. I feel , on my NC 37 – 40 skin tone it is very easy to carry shade and am sure you will agree with me on that.
Pigmentation- The blush is nicely done, you can build the color with a tap of brush and that the best thing about it – you can layer and get the desired intensity.
Texture & Finish- MAC Cheek Pollen is from their Satin Finish range which is one of my favorite after matte as they are very soft and satiny and adds a nice glow without being overpowering plus the powder is done so nicely .
Staying power- The blush stays good for 7 – 8 hours on my oily skin even if am not in A.C., it doesn’t appear patchy or fades easily even though its such a soft and subtle color .
What I like about MAC Cheek Pollen Blush?
- The shade is very flattering and goes with everything.
- The powder is finally milled and is easy to blend and build.
- The pigmentation is great.
- The staying power is another plus point.
- The handy packaging.
What I don’t like about MAC Cheek Pollen Blush?
- This is limited edition shade and sadly it’s not available now.
My Recommendations- I adore this shade and if you trust me, this is the only shade I reach to when am in doubt, it is effortlessly beautiful and is something you would want to pair with anything and everything. A shade like this is a must have in your stash; there must be quite a few dupes for this am sure.
