  • 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 ( 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.

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.MAC Salsa Rose blush review+mac salsa rose swatch

Here’s how it looks on me… I’ve used it lightly so as to look glowy and natural instead of OTT 😉
