Reviews, Swatches, Dupes, Price of MAC Margin Frost Powder Blush
I have a secret affair with BLUSHES…Not one, but many! Yes, I am a complete blush addict, and I love discovering new shades and experimenting with them! I own oodles of blushes and can never get enough of them! Today, I’ll review and swatch one the most stunning blushes I own from mac cosmetics, that is, MAC Margin Blush in Frost finish! This was my very first purchase from MAC cosmetics. I have had this blush for ages, and I just cannot stop loving it! Its a frost formula meaning it can double up as your highlighter as well.
My Review of the MAC Margin Blush:
Packaging: This baby is packed in a nice round pot, in black. The blush lid is transparent with MAC embedded on top of it; the bottom showcases the name of the shade. I like how the packaging is really sturdy. I have dropped it a gazillion times, and it never broke (touch-wood!) Also, being a very compact size, the mac blush is easy to carry around in your purse! I like how you can replace the blush with a new one every time you run out of it!
Application: Working with powder blushes was never this easy. The frost formula is beautiful and goes on smoothly. It allows you to work directionally, and is – too! But try not to go overboard with them, especially if you have problems with open pores or acne, as it tends to accentuate them!
Finish: The finish of this frost blush is beautiful, despite it being a powder blush; it is not powdery at all. Margin blush has a soft creamy texture, which goes on the cheeks beautifully! The glow it imparts lasts all day and makes the skin look dewy… so if you are looking for that sun-kissed glow, go for it! You will not need an extra highlighter when you use mac margin. Also, if you are scaring away from the shimmer particles in it, they do not appear glittery at all. Mac margin blush blends like a dream.
Color: I would call mac margin a beautiful warm-toned, bronzy gold with peachy undertones. The mac blush has teeny tiny shimmer particles that add a frosted look to the skin, adding to the beauty of the blush. On my NC 40 skin, the frost finish blush looks more of a highlighter, which adds a beautiful healthy glow. This is the perfect blush when your skin needs that instant pick-me-up! It suits almost every skin tone and great to be teamed up with a soft day look or a dramatic Smokey look!
Fragrance: This mac blush does not really have an fragrance to it. So, sensitive noses, grab it without worrying about the scent.
Pigmentation: I would not say that the margin blush is opaque. It gives a nice sheen to the cheeks, without looking over-the-top. However, just because I said its sheer, do not go over and over applying it.
Longevity: Being a MAC blush, the staying power is superb as expected out of the brand. I have worn this to college and I have worn it to weddings, it does last for a good eight hours on the skin. Also, margin frost does leave a slight glow after fading away, so, even if you don’t see the color on your cheek, you will surely notice that glow-from-within sheen!
Price: It is priced at INR 1450 in India and $41 in the United States!
