MAC Fleur Power Blush
This is one of the hardest decisions that made me buy MAC Fleur Power. I must have three MAC Blushes as basic. It would be brown-based, peach-based and pink-based so that it can work with any looks. So after buying MAC Coppertone and MAC Peaches Blush , it was time to ponder over the pinks. I wanted something that was not baby-pink, but more like burnt-pink, which is less extreme than bright pink. So I picked Fleur Power. The MUA did a nice job of applying on my cheeks and it looked so good in MAC store that I had to buy it.
But wait, I try this blush next day and baap re! It was so dark and it looked so unnatural. I had to rub it off and was mad like hell that now I have to go, return it back and again search for new pink! But next day, I applied very light -kind of like feathery strokes. Still it was dark for my liking. I was a little disappointed. Sometimes you just want the product to work for you.
That evening I went to Wal-mart and got hold of Kabuki brush from Ecotools and used that to brush away the “darkness” of Fleur Power and Voila! It worked. It settled into a nice light pink shade which suited me so right! It wasn’t baby-pink like cute-pink, but more like outstanding-pink, like a statement-pink! And I was relieved.
Average staying power of blush is around 4 hours, and then it may need a bit of touch up. I am NC30 in MAC, and I believe this colour can work for anyone – from fair to dark skins, since it’s such a pretty pink.
This has no shimmer; it’s kind of like matte, so that’s even better for everyday look, although MAC deems it more of SATIN. It is buttery smooth in texture.
So here are the swatches.
It is a powder blush, one of the satin kinds by MAC. It sells for $19.50 (Rs 1150) I believe, so with taxes, it is 21-22 bucks. It contains 6 g. which means it’s here to stay for a long time. I also saw NARS Orgasm blush one day at Sephora. I didn’t try or swatch, but the shade looked heavenly. No wonder its has huge fan base! I’ll keep my eye on that since my birthday is coming near! :devil:

This picture was taken in natural light so that’s the real pink.
I had to share this. I made bread at home from scratch. Here is the final look of it as well.
