MAC My Paradise Cheek Powder Review, Swatch, FOTD
MAC describe My paradise as peach pressed powder with gold hibiscus flower overspray.
Price : Rs 1,660
My Paradise is a peachy orange blush with a thick golden overspray. Those who are scared of wearing deep orange blushes, this is could be a good beat. It is not deep orange. It is peachy orange. The golden over spray is quite thick and I suggest that you don’t swirl your brush all over it . It would totally take away the beauty of the blush.
You can go from day to evening with the same blush. Use the non shimmery part during the day and just apply a bit of golden shimmer on top for evening. the shimmers are very finely milled and the goldne part only gives that glow to the cheeks without any shimmers. Just a touch of brush on the over spray gives enough product to apply on the cheek. And a little would go a long way.
The texture is sort of thin powdery. I felt that on my skin tone I had to build it up. It is not sheer but it is not full on pigmented. However for orange I do prefer that the colour could be built up than going all crazy with colour in one go. The texture is also slightly different form the regular mac blushes. It is not like satiny smooth. It is more powdery than the regular blushes but that has nothing do with its blendability. It blends pretty smooth and fine. Infact it doesn’t go patchy as well.
The staying power is pretty good on me. It has lasted almost 6 hours on me. And I could see the light wash of colour on my cheeks by evening.
The quantity is 4gm more than your regular blush, which is quite a lot.
My Paradise would work on a various skin tones especially medium to dusky. On me , it gives a nice warmth to my face. However, if you are someone who prefers fresh pink blushes, his may not be for you. I would however love to use it more during the summers than in winters.
Swatch : left without golden over spray, right- with goldne over spray. WIth overspray it looks much woarmer and would kinda give you that tanned peachy look.
FOTD – Applied both blush and overspray.
Orange Blush Comparisons: These are not the dupes. This is just to show how it compares to other peach and orange blushes.
The square one is Sleek Aruba Blush , next is MAC Hipness Blush and third is My Paradise.
Sleek Aruba is deep burnt orange (bottom). My Paradise is more wearble and has much softer orange tones to it.
MAC Hipness vs MAC My Paradise:
left – My Paradise more orangey peachy, MAC hipness- pinkish peach
Indian Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating : 4/5
Go for it : If you are looking for more wearable orange blush . It’s beautiful color and you can’t go overboard with it easily.
Skip it : If you don’t prefer the warm tanned look.
MAC My Paradise Cheek Powder would be launching with MAC Surf Baby Collection (launching next weekend).

hihihihihi no! I have made some awesome friends through this blog. I feel they have been my chuddi buddi dost. 😀 😀
it made my heart skip a beat……its so pretty
it is anni. 🙂
I liked the color.It suits u really well! :yes:
thanks tanu. 🙂
can’t say much abt the makeups. but i love the golden flower on My Paradise. so cute. does the golden come on the brush?
yeah it acts as a highlighter.
i love this color
It’ll give lovely warm look with all those gold shimmer..nice blush! :yes:
thanks parita. yeah it gives that warmth to the skin. 🙂
very intelligent question…..if the golden flower is all over the orange blush…how do you pick it up seperately 😐 😐 😐 😐
side se… it;s not all over. there is enough space on side to pick the blush. very intelligent answer 😐 😐 😐
very very pretty blush ! the golden design is soo unique and pretty am loving it !
yeahhh i like it too taps. 🙂
somehow I didn’t like it much!! :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth: :shutmouth:
cali not everyone likes orange blushes. 😀
yeah..this will make me look too tan!! :((
That flower is so cute and this would be great for a day to night look. That blush with the golden tones would look really nice on darker skin :woot:
It would LP. It always looks. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
:inlove: :inlove: :inlove:
i liked the blush just for the golden flower 😆 😆 😆
I liked the color and design…but I read that the texture of this is not as good as other MAC blushes..
bhumika it is different. This one is sort of powdery as I mentioned and I think that is why they have named it as cheek powder and not a blush. It’s like mineral powder blush pressed and put forward kinds..
I have a very good idea :haanji:
You take out that pretty flower, and give it to me :dumb:
:stars: :stars: :stars:
Love the blush though it looks more orange than peach! Not buying as it depressed me when i came to know that the gold is just an overspray!! Good product though its not a match to last year’s marine life powder blush!!
oh if overspray is disappointing then how did you like the marine life one. That didnt have even one forth of the over spray that this has. Also it’s more like an overlay than an over spray. It is sort of engraved quite deep and would last quite a while unlike the marine one , which came off with a swipe of a tissue. 😛 😀 I think both are pretty. 🙂
rati rati ,…i got odange cream blush :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
u got mehndi done :makeup: :makeup: :makeup:
Hehehe, she has got mehandi on both hands…I had to apply all that nimbu and sugar syrup on it. Now I have to change even the TV channels for her 😛
heheheh…..i was reading one very old posht..usmei u had written how u both wud go on rick wen u both wer not married for mehndi.n thn all tht nimbu chini etc. 😛 i was thinking abt dat only since afternoon …. :victory2: :victory2: :victory2:
yesh noofoorrr.. kal toh sab kaam se i took chutti :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
:spank: :spank: so prettty…I would never use this blush if I bought it…it’s so pretty won’t feel like spoiling the design naaa..they should have made the gold go all the way through instead of just as an overspray
haan that would hav been better. bt na this gold thingy is quite like.. ummm thickk. 😛 so it would go on quite a while . 😀 😀
Awwww Rati…..superb superb….. :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: . BTW, in case you have NYX blush Cinnamon, how would you compare this one with that? According to me, this MAC one has peachy tinge, and the NYX Cinnamon has a yellowish tinge, both being orange-based though. Hmm, let me check this out when it’s launched. :waiting:
I have only seen cinnamon online and yeah you are right. i feel cinnamon is more like nars tajmahal than this one. this one is more peachy orangey. 🙂
I like how you have applied the bloooooooooooooooosh..me copycat same to same and see if it works for me too..you look thinner 😛
:yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
I’d just buy it for the flower n display in my show-case, its so pretty!! :heart:
It Looks good on u :methinks: .. But i dont thnk it will suit every one.. :worship: …
yeah could be the case visakhi. not everyone prefers the tanned look. 🙂

This is like a collectors item types
yeah bee it is more of a collector’s item but the blush is also kinda nice. 🙂
It’s a lovely colour… and such a pretty design :). But I’m already tanned enough!
