Review: MAC Immortal Flower Blush
I was really excited about this blush, despite the dinky name. (When I hear “Immortal Flower”, I immediately think of 1. plastic flowers at the doctor’s office and 2. orientalism.) The color looks completely gorgeous, and I’ve had really good luck with MAC blushes in the past.
The color is a light, peachy pink with a satin finish.
The big problem I have with it isn’t the color or the formula or
anything like that– it’s the product maintenance. I’m not sure what it
is about certain blushes that causes them to wind up with a film of
hard grease on top of the blush, obscuring the pigment, but this is one of the ones that does it.
I’ve been wearing this for almost a month now and finding that I have to scrape off the top every couple of times that I use it. This is not only a big pain, but it’s a waste of product.
The blush isn’t very pigmented, meaning that it looks natural and glow-y on fair skin. Sadly, I don’t think that this would work well on darker skin because the product can’t be built up very much. (Personally, though, I’ve been using this blush a ton.)
Immortal Flower retails for $21 for 0.21oz, or $100 per ounce.
