MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush Review ,Swatches & FOTD


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 😀

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 Frankly scarlet blush review and swatches

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.

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.
