Monthly splurge #1 - MAC Blush - Peaches


Recently I've been looking through my collection of beauty related items and realised how much I appreciate the few high end products that I own. Now don't get me wrong, I love drugstore products and think you can find some real gems, however I've realised if you add up the amount I've spent on lower range products (that I've only bought because I've been too stingy to buy the more expensive versions) it comes to a lot of money. 

I've decided I want to start using that money to buy some higher end products that I'll really love.  So this is the first of a monthly series I've decided to do called Monthly Splurge. Each month I'll pick a product which is between £10 and £20 that I would usually back away from telling myself I can't afford it and put my foot down and splurge. I'm also going to try and stop spending my money on lesser products that I find in drug stores and buy just because it’s good value.

 This month's product is a MAC blusher, a few months ago I made my first MAC purchase a lipstick and since then it has been my favourite lipstick in my collection. After loving my lipstick so much I decided to invest in a blusher, my blusher collection is decidedly lacking on the peachy colours so I settled on Peaches which as the name suggests is a pure peach colour.

I chose peaches because I'd read on some blogs that it was a good colour for pale skin. Peaches is a sheertone blush and means it offers very buildable colour which is perfect for lighter skinned girls. It offers such a warm healthy glow that it is perfect for the lovely spell of warm weather we're having and I can tell this is going to be my favourite blusher for this summer.

The formula is silky smooth and so easy to blend, making it apply perfectly every time, and the build ability makes it easy to control the depth of colour you want on your cheeks which stops me looking like a clown.  It's a matte powder so works perfectly on my oily skin and lasts for most of the day, it's just such a natural colour I can't imagine this not looking lovely on anyone.  


The blush cost £17.50 which is quite steep however I know I'm going to love and cherish this blush and to me it's completely worth it. I think you always need a few items that are special so that you can look and feel special when you're wearing them. I'm glad I splurged on this item and I can't wait to decide what to splurge on next month. The blush is available on the MAC website here or in store.

What would you splurge on?

Lots of Love
