MAC Lovecloud Blush | Review.



When the MACTres Cheek Collection first came out in 2012, it was like the makeup gods answered my prayers – I was pretty much a blush addict (nowadays I’m more of a foundation junkie) at the time and this collection was heaven sent. It resulted in the immediate purchase of the limited edition shades Lovecloud and Modern Mandarin. A couple of months ago, it was announced that MAC would be adding four of these shade line up (Lovecloud, Full of Joy, Immortal Flower, Modern Mandarin) to their permanent line-up. Lovecloud happens to be my favourite shade out of their entire range, so I thought it would be appropriate to review this to give you an idea of what the blush is like.

The MACLovecloud Blush is a neutral-toned pink shade ($25, available here). Despite how cool-toned in looks in the pan, the blush applies in a much flattering manner on my warm skintone. This shade balances out the pink undertone very well – It is definitely one of the fewer colours that can look good on both warm and cool skintones. On the cheeks, the blush looks like a barely-there, natural flush – almost undetectable initially (it looks that natural-looking), and can be easily layered to get a stronger pigmentation.

The blush is quite pigmented to begin with so I cannot imagine needing more than one swipe of colour on the cheeks. MAC’s blush formula is another one of my favourite formulas: there are plenty of shades and formula too choose from, and they not too powdery or soft, but still has great colour payoff and lasting-power. I’ve also shown comparisons with several other blushes that fall in that similar range of colour for comparison purposes.

Overall, MACLovecloud Blush was a surprise favourite – the colour payoff, long-lastingness, as well as how flattering it looks on my skintone makes this a rare “true” pink that works amongst my beauty stash.
