MAC Vintage Grape Blush Ombre Review


This blush ombre is from the Daphne Guinness for MAC collection and i only have one of the two because the other one i felt would be too light for my complexion. I was so excited to get this blush because it looks so pretty and honestly its the only thing i wanted from the collection. The Blush Ombres from the collection (Vintage Grape and Azalea Blossom) are repromotes but still limited edition.



I really love this color because its a beautiful berry color and it looks wonderful on medium to dark skin tones.
Fair girls can also get away with this pretty color if applied lightly with a stippling brush, if not you can check out azalea blossom(Great color for light skin tones). My only complaint is that my brush doesn't pick up a lot of color so i have to swirl my brush in there a few times to get a good amount and i have to blend in very well onto my cheeks. I don't mind that because overall its great pretty color. It's kind of pricey ($26.00 for 0.31 oz) than your regular MAC blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz) but still keep in mind that you are getting more than the regular size blush. The Blush ombre is similar in size as MAC's MSF


 L-R: light shade, Dark shade, Mixed together

This is a great blush because you can use the top blush for a pretty barbie doll pink, you can use the bottom for a nice rich wine color or you can swirl them together and get a pretty berry color.

Where to buy: MAC Cosmetics
Price: $26.00
Size/Amount: 0.31 oz

Pros:
-3 shades of blushes in 1
-its has a good amount so it will last you a long time
-The Mixed color is super pretty
-The Blush ombre is very unique and pretty to look at =)

Cons:
-A bit pricey
-Hard to blend
-its not very pigmented but it still picks up a fair amount.

Overall: I really love this color and its unlike anything that i already own so i really like it and it's versatile.
