This post is dedicated to Shweta…Y you ask? Coz this is what she sent me as my Mommy Gift!! 🙂 Â Yeps..while I got tons of gifts for my baby, Shwe knowing Iâ€™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.. â€˜INTENSEâ€™ . If any of you have swatched MAC Frankly scarlett, then youâ€™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, itâ€™s a satin finish blush so it doesnâ€™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 isnâ€™t available anywhere other than a MAC Pro Store, I find absolutely no downside to this formula.
Hereâ€™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?
