MAC Melba Blush

 MAC powder blush in "Melba" £17

Because of not owning (and therefore needing) a peach toned blush, I felt I was missing out! I always grab my topshop "neon rose" cream blush in the morning, but since it's winter and my skin is getting paler I wanted something a little more subtle and "peach".
In the pan I found this blush a little pink on the pink side,  but when applied MAC Melba is the perfect true peach, not too pinky or bright like some peach blushes can be, it leaves a lovely flush of colour to the cheeks. 
Not being one for shiny cheeks, I primarily went for Melba because it's a matte finish (my favourite), I find the MAC matte finish blushes are true to colour, sheer enough but easily build-able for the intensity you want, without any of that dreaded shimmer which I find just too much for winter mornings.
I also think this would look great with a tan!

  4. This is my all time favorite blush! Im NC 40/42 and it still looks lovely - not too light. I do have to build up a bit. Will always repurchase!
