Some products like blushes or bronzers are better when they are not extremely pigmented. You wouldn’t want to have excessive amount of blush after the first swipe and then you try to make mute it down. So having a sheer one, which you could build up, is a better option. MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush is one of these blushes, which will give a pop of colour with one swipe but nothing more.
My MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush Peachykeen Review
MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen is a mixture of peach and pink with fine golden shimmers. It is more on the pink side than peach. Even though it is a shimmery blush, it still looks natural on the skin. Golden shimmers highlights the cheekbones and give subtle glow. If you want that effortless glowy finish, you don’t need to use highlighter but this blush. Also, if you’re a matte lover, then this is definitely something you wouldn’t like. It gives nothing close to a matte finish.
Since it is a sheertone blush, you won’t get much colour with one swipe. If you’re after a subtle look, then it will be more than enough. For a more intense look, you need a few swipes to build it up. It is one of the things I love about it. Also, the sheertone blush is easy to work with, it just blends easily and easy to build up.
People with oily skin know how hard it is to maintain the makeup. Most of the products don’t last long and you have to be refreshed all the time, I must say it gets really annoying. MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush lasts around 5-6 hours on oily skin before starting to fade, so I would expect it to last for a whole day on normal skin, which is pretty good. Even after fading, it still leaves a wash of colour, so even if you can’t reapply it, it won’t look bad.
MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush has been one of my most worn blushes. I still prefer the texture of Max Factor Crème Puff Blush just because it feels silky, but I really like the peachy pinkish colour mix and the glow I get with this blush.
