When it comes to make up- mascara, eyeshadows, lipsticks and blushes are my favourites and yes you’ve seen the size of my collection earlier on in the week (here), so I thought it would do a review on a new discovered hidden gem.

Mac Peachtwist blush

This is the only sheertone shimmer blush which I have in my collection, and I snapped it up in an instant from Charlotte’s blog sale last year. I’ve worn it a few times, but for some reason lately this is all what I have been wearing when I’m not at work.

The jury is out on what colour to actually describe this blush as many people say its pink/peachy while other say its peach with a red undertones. How would I describe it?? Terracotta. A little goes a very long way with this blush and you need to be very light handed when applying it. Without tan I am roughly NW20 (fair in Boots 17 foundations) and I don’t like wearing it if I’m not tanned. With a tan I’m NW25 and I wear this instead of a bronzer/blush duo.

I’ve done some swatches on my arm for you to show how it looks blended out and its one of those products which would be ideal to take away on holiday with you. Apparently it has been compared to Nars Orgasm (Sleek Rose Gold is a dupe for that), however I don’t own that product so I can’t really comment.


Mac Peachtwist is available from the Mac site for £17.50.
