MAC me look like Blair Waldorf-Warmth of Coral review...

Monday, August 08, 2011

Hey Girlies!

Did you see what I did with the title? MAC instead of make? Ha get it? Oh dear, it's a worry that I find myself funny. Moving on swiftly...

Now I don't know if I mentioned on here about my naughty little MAC purchases, you see my memory is like a sieve these days but yes I have made a sneaky few purchases. One of my purchases was the Warmth Of Coral mineralize blush. Now as you may know I am obsessed with blushers and one shade of blusher which isn't apparent in my make up bag is peach/coral shades. This I decided needed to change.

I want to look like her- well not as much as Cheryl but still. 

My peach blush obsession came about after watching Gossip Girl, I got the box set of seasons 1-3 for my birthday, so me and my boyfriend have been watching GG like there's no tomorrow. Who knew my boyfriend would actually enjoy Gossip Girl eh? Anyway in the first few episodes of season 2, Blair who is lovely and tanned after a summer in Europe rocks a gorgeous peach colour on her cheeks. Being the make up obsessive that I am, I decided I needed a blush that colour and that if I had a blush this colour I would become Blair Waldorf. ( I am joking.)

I did my research and had some help from some lovely girls  and decided that MAC's Warmth of Coral was the nearest match to the one in the Gossip Girl make up bag.

I ordered this blush from Debenhams online as MAC had sold out. But it was a £1.00 cheaper on Debenhams and beauty club cardholders get free delivery. Bargain.

So this morning my blush arrived and here's my thoughts...

Do I look like Blair Waldorf? 
First of all no. I'd need perfect skin and wealth for that but my cheeks might give her a good run for her money. Warmth of Coral is a peach colour which is very pigmented however it doesn't seem to transfer as bright on to your face. I needed to layer it this morning to make it brighter and unfortunately the photo's I took don't make it stand out that much. But these photos are also making my hair look a lot lighter than what it actually is so there we go. 

I think that this blush will look lovely when my face is darker again ( hello Crete in 2 weeks time) but I do like this blush, it gives a lovely natural glow that nothing else in my make up bag can achieve. However I was slightly disappointed with the fact you only get 3.5g worth of product?! HUH? You get 6g worth of product in the normal powder blushes and they're £2.00 cheaper! Madness. 

I will try and get some better pictures of this blush on so look out for it on some FOTD's which I'll get taken within the next few days! Hope you all have a lovely Monday evening :)

  1. this is lovely on you, but it looks quite different to the pan? Have you tried almond by Bobbi Brown? That is quite similar to Blair's look!
    I am surprised you get so little for your money with this as well!

  2. It looks really natural and lovely on you Corrie! :)

  3. @Holly Arabella- I know, it looks like it has bits of pink in the pan! No I haven't think I need to research it! (Not another blush!)

    @Yu- Thanks Yu :)

  4. I think this is a good dupe for the Blair Waldorf look. You look great! I have this blush, too, and it's a nice mix of peach and warm brown, don't you think? But as you said, doesn't apply as pigmented.

  5. The blush may not have come out the way you expected, but it still looks gorgeous on you! I'm shocked at how little you get of this product for the money though, d'you think it's worth it? xxxx

    @Bluebellss- Ah thank you :) I know it is pretty shocking but to be honest I do think that some MAC make up is over priced not as much as some other brands though! I do really like this blush though and I've not seen anything like it on the high street so I suppose it is worth it!x
