Product Rave - Mac Blush in Melba

Mac Blush in Melba

Hi Pretties

I would love to share with you my new favourite product!

My birthday was this week and to be honest, it was a pretty crappy day.  I had all my celebrations before my birthday so by the time Tuesday hit, there wasn't anything left to do!

So I decided to treat myself to a new Mac blush.  I'm a little obsessed with Mac blushes.  I love the packaging, the colours, the pay off and how pretty they look.  The MUA at my local counter and I decided Melba was the perfect blush to add to my collection.

Mac describes this blush as a soft coral peach (matte) and this retails for $41 AUD.  Now my favourite of late prior to this was Mac blush in Springsheen which is a light peach with gold gold pearl and it is a sheertone shimmer.  I LOVE Springsheen, but I wanted something less shimmery.

My colouring is fair with pink undertones, but my skin wears colours like a more neutral tone.  I can wear pinks and corals quite easily and this blush wears sort of like a matte bronzer, but more coral and pretty.

Here's a swatch!
Oh how I wish my camera did this justice!

This blush wears like a fairly typical Mac blush.  It is highly pigmented, long wearing and very build-able.

As I like my blush to be very subtle I apply my Mac blushes with a stippling brush (except Well Dressed).  I use the Manicare Artiste Professional Stippling Brush in No 17.  I think this is a great brush for blush!

My favourite thing about this Melba is that you can apply it ever so slightly, and it can just brighten your whole face up without being obvious.  Great for work!

Melba subtly brightens without being too obvious

So I'll make a suggestion to you, next time you want to spoil yourself at Mac, check out Melba!


  1. Happy belated birthday! I'm so sorry to hear to had a crappy day. Your MAC Blush in Melba looks like a really nice treat! Artiste brushes are such good quality, I wish I could buy the whole set lol!

  2. I think they are great too! I'm am ordering Sigma brushes next month though :)
