ABAD Day 26: MAC Pink Cult blush//"每日一胭脂"系列 第26天: MAC Pink Cult 胭脂

Day 26 of A-Blush-A-Day is going to feature a 'dark horse' for me, (blush-wise XD). I called it a dark horse because there's no way tell it'll look THAT GOOD from judging it in the pan, but I'm glad I swatched it and got it. It's been one of my top favourites ever since I got it.

第26天feature的胭脂是MAC的Jeanius Collection裡的Pink Cult, 我稱這個胭脂作 "爆冷". 原因是, 從表面看這個顏適普通不過, 好像很低沉/不鮮艷, 但我很慶幸有在手背試色, 自從有了這個顏色之後, 它已成為其中一個"賣飛佛".

Pink Cult is a matte, dusty pink color which might look a bit ashy on first glance, but when swatched on the back of hand, it shows up amazingly beautiful (see below), almost like someone is blushing shyly. Pink Cult's color is extremely work-safe and the best part is, this kind of pink is timeless. You can never go wrong with this color in anytime/ages, in my opinion.

Pink Cult 的顏色很像 '塵' 一般, 低沉, 一點也不鮮艷. 但在手背/面上出來的顏色是驚人的好看, 真的很似在害羞時面上會有的顏色那種. 非常適合返工, 還有, 這種粉紅色是不會 go out of style 的. 永遠都不會不合時.

Intensity: highly pigmented
Finish: matte, 100%
Price: ~$20-21 USD
Lasting power: 5-6 hours
Repurchase: yes, just for the lovely shade itself, I would
Overall thoughts: Pink Cult is a timeless pink, it's the go-to blush to wear if you can't decide on what color to go for on any day. Since it's matte, and the shade is amazingly flattering on lighter skin tones, it's definitely work-safe. Pink Cult comes out totally different from how dusty and muted it looks in the pan, a true winner (dark-horse)! LOL

效果: 100% 啞光
價錢: ~$20-21 USD
持久度: 5-6小時
回購: 以顏色來說, 是絕對會的
總評: Pink Cult 的顏色是無論任何時候, 地點都會適合使用, 很flexible. 由於它亦是啞光, 所以都適合上班族. 每當我不肯定用那個顏色時, 用 Pink Cult 就絕對不會錯. 出來的顏色完全不同光看它表面的低沉粉紅色, 簡單來說就是我遇過最 "爆冷" (勝出) 的顏色!

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 4 x 30 = 120 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's, Vonvon's, PopBlush's blogs for daily blush surprises!
