REVIEW: MAC Cream Blush in LadyBlush


Review of MAC Cream Blush in LadyBlush

Guest Post By: Rmyah

These days I’m hoarding blushes… So much that I keep forgetting the ones I already have for the ones that are fresh entrants to my kitty. One such forgotten beauty was my dearly beloved first MAC blush… I cannot even believe I forgot about this one.
For many, their first blushes remain cherished, same is the case with me… My love for blushes started with this darling of mine called “Ladyblush”.

Usually when we ladies start experimenting with blushes, we end up owning powder blushes first… The reason being that they are easier to handle… For me, the converse holds true…
I have always secretly admired people who experiment with their makeup and are bold and ambitious… I wanted to be one of them… So I always choose the path least taken… Thus my first blush became a cream blush

MAC cream blushes or blushcreme as they are called my MAC, come in the classic black MAC packaging with a transparent flip cap which makes it easier for us to locate the color… Pretty ordinary packaging… but then elegant and classy MAC.

MAC describes Ladyblush as a warm neutral Coral, but I see no coral anywhere here… This is not the first time I’ve disagreed with MAC’s color classification… I would say this is a faint peachy pink and probably is the most natural looking blush on me…

The funny thing about this blush is that it does not show the subtle peach in photographs… It shows up pink, which it absolutely is not….(actually it does not show in pictures much at all but in person this color brightens up my entire persona… I had to double apply the blush to get it to show in photos).

Another thing I hate about Ladyblush is that if applied with a loose hand, it can make me appear sick….its turns paler and paler as we try and build the color… Very weird blush indeed.

Price of MAC BlushCreme LadyBlush

Price…a major Ouch…costing 1150 INR for 6 grams when I bought it…I think MAC has upped the prices now…Double OUCH…
Lasts for about six hours on my dry cheeks….I actually like using cream blushes because it gives a subtle glow to my dehydrated cheeks…Loveeee…

This shade is definitely not for dusky beauties as it would look morbid on them….pale beauties can easily end up estimating wrong…so if you are anywhere between pale and medium, you’d love this blush.

The Ooohs
1. Easy to blend, does not look patchy
2. Gives my skin a healthy glow
3. Lasts for a pretty decent amount of time…may not be enough for some though

The Ouches
1. Turns whiter as we try to build the color
2. Not a universal blush shade
3. This blush melts in the heat….so storage….in the fridge maybe ;)

I guess a pretty balanced verdict for the Ladyblush….I do not think I’ll venture towards this particular lady again….there are plenty of fish in the market honey :)

P.S. please ignore the crappy photograph...had to do that because the blush wasn't showing at a finer quality setting... :(


  1. You look great Rmyah..and loved ur curly locks cos even m blessed with those heavy curls

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

I was planning on starting this post with a quote on health and all that jazz but then I realized you are here reading this post not cause you want to see my writing style but are here cause you actually want to read the contents :) So I will start without much intro but a little disclaimer before that ;) Disclaimer I am not a doctor or a nutritionist or even a dietitian. I have found out from experience what works for me and I am sharing it with you guys. You are to find out what is right for you and make your own permutations and combination to this regimen of mine depending on your target weight, your lifestyle and all :) Before I start there are a couple of points we need to keep in mind: 1. In order to lose weight one needs to burn more calories than you take in. 2. The human body takes about only 1200 calories to do the routine functions of respiration, digestion etc. 3. Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
