I don’t quite think any beauty product deserves the heart-eyed emoji more than this one does…(okay with the exception of the Hourglass blushers). When I first heard this blush was being released under the Toledo collection for MAC, I was sold. You may be familiar with this specific Ripe Peach ombre blush which is actually a re-release as it was launched for another collection for MAC back in 2010 (I think). I have to say I was pretty lucky after I actually seen the older version on Pinterest and got rather excited about it before realising it was limited edition and of course then discontinued, so to then hear a couple of months later it was part of a new collection I knew it had to be mine!
The MAC Toledo collection hit online and in stores in the UK just this month and me being me went in to MAC the first day it hit the shelves. It was a pricey one however at £25 *ouch* but to be honest I was too excited at the time to care (I can’t be the only one). There is no denying how beautiful it looks in the packaging but I am not sure that the beauty of it really lives up to expectations. The colour pay off isn’t great if I’m honest, you really need to build it up for any good pigmentation and it does feel like your using so much of the product. There is also pieces of shimmer running through it so if you aren’t a fan of shimmery blushes this is one to avoid. It isn’t overly shimmery though and it does create a nice subtle glow to the cheeks which is perfect for Summer but it does take quite a bit of time to really gain a good colour pay off.
I wouldn’t say I regret this purchase, I mean look how pretty it is! The formula isn’t great but it does build up to create a nice glow but not exactly worth £25 if I’m honest. MAC do much better blushes!
Have you tried this blush? Do you own anything from the Toledo collection?
