I've used MAC for a while but I received my first blush in Melba for my birthday. I was so sketched out having my mom pick it out for me (I sent her a picture of Alexa Chung to match), but it is perfect. Melba is a matte, coral shade with more orange than pink in it(don't let that scare you) and it looks good on my pale, olive skin and my roommate's tan, rosy skin. In respect to pigment, its packed, just like their eyeshadows. Just a little swipe with the blush brush is all you need.
By far my favorite!
The MAC line of powder blushes are just the BEST. They definitely are high quality. My favorite shade is Melba! What i love the most about them is that they last all day, I don't have to retouch at all! I've had mine for almost a year and I still haven't hit pan- and I use it everyday!
M.A.C blushes in general are very high quality and offer pretty much any colour in the world you can think of. I don't think they are the best quality blushes around, but they are still pretty amazing in my opinion. I currently own seven, one of them being "Melba", which is a dusty peach shade.
It is the perfect peach colour for fair skin in my opinion (I'm NC5) yes, 5. not 15! and I often find that real peachy shades (think M.A.C "Peaches" blush), tend to throw too much orange on my skin and make me look clownish - Melba, does not do this, but instead provides me with a fresh, natural flush of the perfect shade of dusty peach that allows me to wear pretty much any coloured lipstick with it. (goes amazingly with reds). Wearing time until fading starts: about 6 hours.
(see photo I attached to see how it appears on pale skin).
RRP: $41 AUD
worth every penny
I have oily skin so this is a good choice for me since Melba's a matte blush. Very good pigmentation & lasts for a decent amount of time. I also have Stunner (from the Mac me over collection), which is a very subtle, pinkish color. I cannot wait to have Warm soul, since its unavailable here in Manila :(
