Guest Review : MAC Très Cheek


MAC has a new collection of blushers, Très Cheek, 6 limited edition powders in red-orange, peach, pink and lavender. 5 of them have satin finishes while another 1 has a frost finish. Over to guest reviewer, Fatin for her opinion on how they fared.

It’s smooth, it’s sheer, it’s tres chic! MAC Très Cheek is another new limited edition collection for Spring/Summer and it features six powder blushes. Described as seamless, I want them all!

The shades I have are Love Cloud and Modern Mandarin which seems to be the more popular ones. Love Cloud is a bright mid-tone pink with a satin finish. In the pan it doesn’t exactly look like a shade that will give you a pop of colour and after swatching it, Love Cloud appears to be a sheer cool tone pink. The texture is velvety smooth. However I noticed with this shade, it required quite a bit of layering before it showed on my skin tone. Even with layers on, it’s still seamless and looks luminous. It gives that soft sheen that looks really natural. A soft pretty shade for an understated look.

Modern Mandarin on the other hand is a lovely pop of colour. It is a red-orange shade with a satin finish. This one is my fave out of the two. It shows with ease when swatched. The texture is smooth but I noticed that it isn’t as velvety as Love Cloud. Don’t get me wrong though, it still blends like a dream. Although it appears bright-ish in the pan, it shows beautifully on my skin tone. I think this works great with medium skin tone babes for an effortless pop of colour. The colour is easily buildable so it’s up to you how much you want to be noticed. Both colours lasted about 5 hours on my cheeks before I noticed any colour fading.

Apart from Love Cloud and Modern Mandarin Tres Cheek also comes in Pink Tea (Neutral Beige Pink – Satin), Peony Petal (Bright Blue Pink – Satin), Immortal Flower (Bright Peach – Satin) and Full of Joy ( Lavender – Satin). It is available now at all MAC outlets for RM75.
