I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season. I had been so super busy with Christmas that I didn’t get time to review anything, anyhoo, I will carry on with the review. Well honestly, this is my very first blush. After following IMBB, I had become a lipstick hoarder and now I have branched out into blushes too 😛 While doing my Christmas shopping at MAC, I thought why not try a blush as well this time and I asked the SA to suggest me one that wouldn’t look very over the top and was subtle enough for a beginner like me and then this baby came home with me 😛
INR 1600 for a quantity of 6 gm.
My Experience with MAC Office Hours Collection Pro Longwear Blush – Stubborn:
Well, when the SA first showed me this blush, I got a bit scared as it looked very bright in the pan. It is a raspberry pink in color but a little on the plum side (raspberry plum maybe? :P) But once applied on my cheeks, it blended so well with my skin tone (for reference, I fluctuate between NC 42-44.5). It gives a very natural rosy flush to the cheeks as if one is really blushing. The blush is pretty pigmented and the intensity can be built up without it getting streaky/cakey. I don’t know how this blush will look on fairer skin tones; maybe using it with a light hand could help. Also, it has that MAC wala amazing vanilla fragrance which I love.
Well, now about the Pro Long Wear part, the blush doesn’t stay as long as the SA claimed it would. She said this could easily stay on for 8 hours, but it stays for about 3-4 hours on me without fading and then it starts fading evenly. (Please note that I have oily skin, maybe that’s why the low staying power, but now its winter no??)
Overall, I am very happy with my first blush purchase and I can easily wear it on a daily basis as it is such a pretty and natural color.
