MAC "Pinch O' Peach" Blush Swatch + Review

MAC "Pinch O' Peach" 
Summer 2013 was the summer of the blush obsession. Summer 2012 was lips and Summer 2011 was MAC products in general but this past summer, without a doubt, was all about the cheeks. Last week I posted my review for the Sonia Kashuk blush in "Flushed" (spoiler alert: I really, really liked it) but this week I'm going to talk about a slightly more expensive blush. Allison from amarixe.com or youtube.com/amazrixe (I feel like I talk about her all the time on this blog. Oh, wait, that's because I am.) is a fellow blush lover and she is always talking about this MAC blush called "Pinch O' Peach". So, of course, I had to go out and check it out. 

MAC Blush in "Pinch O' Peach"
 There was one thing I know that EVERYONE must be thinking. If your name is "Pinch O' Peach" then why aren't you peach? Said in your best Karen from Mean Girls voice. Well, I don't have a great answer but I was thinking the same thing too. It isn't a peach color AT ALL. It's a lovely medium pink color. 

Although I did notice that after I got my blush back home it sort of started to change color a little bit--you can see it really clearly in the first picture. Those peachy-brown dots aren't just at the surface. It was something I also noticed when I was at two separate MAC counters during my visit to Hawaii. The color on the inside was a lighter pink but the color on the outer rim was the darker color you see above. Did anyone else have this problem? Or maybe it was just something to do with the Hawaii humidity? I don't know. If you have an answer, I'd love if you left it in a comment below.

MAC Blush in "Pinch O' Peach" Swatch
"Pinch O' Peach", in addition to having an adorable name, is also one of MAC's Sheertone blushes. So although it might look a little intimidating in the pan, it is extremely easy to get a natural, no-makeup look with this product. Have no fear! It even looks really lovely on my sister who has very fair skin. IN the swatch above I worked really hard to pile on the product. I wanted to get a nice opaque swatch for my blog. 

POSITIVES
-Cute name
-Lovely, sheer color that is very buildable
-Sleek MAC packaging

NEGATIVES
-Price ($21 for 6 grams)

So, in conclusion, I really liked this blush from MAC. I'm more inclined to splurge on a blush because (in my experience) most drugstore blushes either don't have a wide range of colors to choose from or aren't very good quality. It wasn't quite what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised. It sort of reminds me of MAC "Lustering" lipstick in blush form. MAC "Pinch O' Peach" is a perfect color for summer.
