MAC Cremeblend Blush: Ladyblush

It’s no secret that I love my cream blushes. Ladyblush is the only cream neutral blush that I own. MAC described the colour as warm neutral coral.

 

True to MAC’s cremeblend texture, Ladyblush is soft and creamy, and applied like melted butter on skin. It is easily blended and applies sheer. The cream is buildable without looking cakey or streaky. It doesn’t matter if application is done using brushes or fingers, I can say that this blush applies seamlessly. No tricks of the trade needed!

 

 

Below is the swatch of Ladyblush, left heavily swatched while right is blended. Depending on your monitor, the colour might appear cooler than it is. In real life, it is a warm neutral colour that leans peachy. It is by no means on the extremes of brown or pink. Neutral shades look good on both warm and cool skin tones, but in my opinion, this might look better on warmer skin tones when worn on its own.

 

 

I have used this as a base under both pink and orange blushes and they look beautiful! Sometimes, I’d wear it at the hollows of my cheeks, sheering out towards the apple of my cheeks. This gives a subtle effect of contouring. Forewarned, this method with this colour only works for lighter skintones. If you are darker, I’d suggest using a darker colour.

Do you have neutral blushes in your stash? Do you prefer brights for your cheeks? And I mean the cheeks on your face. LOL!

    I knew that this would be a contour shade somehow! ^.^ Girl, you're tempting me to try darker, subdued colors… hmmm…. Means injecting into Msian GDP or USA's…

    Lol! It's always good to have variety. This works great as a blush on the apples too. Just a subtle hint of colour.
