MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen

  I admittedly am always drawn to shimmery coral blushes and own quite a few!  I do think all of them are different though (that's my excuse anyways).  MAC powder blushes are always a safe bet for me.  They aren't too expensive, are non-irritating, and come in a huge selection of colours.  After my experience with MAC's Sheertone Blush in Dollymix I wanted to try another blush in that finish and Peachykeen was the one that caught my attention.

 When swatched on my arm Peachykeen looks like a reddish coral with gold shimmer throughout.  On my cheeks it leans more peach hence the name. In my opinion Peachykeen is a natural, every day blush.  Perfect for days when you don't want to get too dolled up but still want to look fresh and awake.  I think this blush is perfect for fair skin due to it's sheerness.  I would imagine on darker skintones this would appear more like a highlighter than a blush. Peachykeen is very versitile as it goes with a range of lipcolours. I can easily wear this with light pinks, reds, peaches, and oranges.  My favourite pairings with this blush are MAC's Cremesheen Glass in Pagoda and Wet N' Wild Lipstick in Purty Persimmon

  I do have to apply quite a bit of blush to achieve the look I want but that's just because I like my blush to be very obvious.  Due to the amount I pile on I find Peachykeen lasts a very long time and I've never had to touch it up.  There are admittedly more unique coral blushes out there but if you're looking for a pretty, basic, everyday blush I highly recommend this.  I have tried other peach blushes from MAC (Peaches, Pinch O' Peach, Style, and Melba) and this is my favourite out of the bunch.

  5. Great review! I've been wanting Peachy Keen for a long time but I have so many peach/coral blushes that I figured I should hold off until I use up the ones I already have :P

    1. I nearly got Springsheen! The SA said this would suit me better. I still want it though as I like how it's more bronzey

  11. Ooh this looks lovely! I adore Peaches and Melba and if you think this is even better I'll have to investigate! x

    1. This is much more different! The sheerness makes it more natural but it's easy to build up.

  12. Ooh, so pretty! I'm a sucker for shimmery coral blushes too. I couldn't get Pinch O' Peach to work on me for some reason, but this one might be worth a try!

    And I'll keep you posted if I see any Illamasqua speckled polishes at Sephora (I go to Ryerson, so am dangerously close ;). I was there Thursday as well for the VIB sale and noticed they were out!

    1. It is slightly! It has the ability to make you look less pale I think.

  15. Do you think this would go well with a medium complexion..I wanna try it but not sure if it would show up on my skin.

    1. I think Springsheen would be a better option. It's very similar but a tad darker and more bronzey. Peachykeen is quite sheer so it might not show up.
