MAC Cheek Pollen Blush Review, Swatches & FOTD


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. Since I badly wanted a natural looking blush, if you know of any dupe please do share here.

My Experience with MAC Cheek Pollen Blush

MAC Cheek Pollen Blush packaging

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.

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 .
