MAC describes the Desert Rose powder blush as a soft reddish-burgundy. Yes, it’s got a reddish tone but I wouldn’t have thought to call it a burgundy shade….Would you?! I don’t know about you but I would consider it a dusty, dirty rose pink. It looks really pretty in the pan and every prettier on skin.
MAC DESERT ROSE | BEAUTY REVIEW
When it comes to MAC blushes (or any MAC product, in fact) my budget doesn’t stretch that far for me to be experimental with perhaps a more vibrant blush or that deep purple lipstick I’ve been wanting to try for ages, so therefore, I like to choose colours that I can get the most out of, the ones that are suitable to wear on a daily basis.
When I buy something from their range, I want something wearable, a shade that I can get the absolute most out of. And Desert Rose (£16.99 from Fragrance Direct
) is exactly what that is. Whether you’re new to make-up or you simply want a everyday blush, Desert Rose is the one. It will suit all skin tones, even those with pale skin.
The powder blush is a matte finish goes on really subtle and sheer but like all of MAC’s blushers, the pigmented colour is buildable which is just as well because I like to be heavy-handed on blush so that the colour lasts longer throughout the day!
Sweep lightly because MAC products are pigmented, a few sweep and you’ll get a natural flush of colour. The swatch below shows 3 layers of the blush which when it has been blended, leaves you with beautiful flush of dark pink on your cheeks.
