4 more days til my MAC Giveaway ends! Enter here!
So today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on MAC’s Gingerly Sheertone Blush. I purchased this a few months ago after seeing it was a best seller. I always try to find beauty bloggers with a similar skin tone to mine & then see what products they use (stalker much? Haha) This is the first blush I purchased from MAC and it will not be my last.
I have oily skin & I was so afraid to start using MAC because a lot of people get bad acne from their products, however, I have had the opposite. My skin is almost clear (it’s more from washing my makeup off daily!). I did notice after switching that I had terrible cystic acne for a few days but it was also right before my wedding, so I think it was caused more by stress than anything else.
Anyways, onto Gingerly. This is a more neutral/brown based blush with a hint of a warmer pink. It’s sheer but you can really build the color up. It’s a little bit pricey, $21 (or $14.70 for MAC Pro Members) for 6 grams.
It is fairly light, so I use it more in the fall/winter when I'm not tan. However, I think once I get a tan this would work great as a contour color. This color reminds me of a terracotta pot, which I happen to think is a gorgeous color. This is a Sheertone blush, so it goes on light but you can build the color. I have had no trouble with the color fading, I can get a good 6-8 hours of wear time & I have fairly oily skin.
Gingerly works well with my skin tone (only when I am not tan) , you can see it below, I just used it on the apple of my cheeks with MAC's Refined Golden Bronzer as a contour.
Would I repurchase this product?
I'm going to say no, not because I don't like it but because I would like a darker blush that is better suited for my skin. MAC offers so many different blushes that I would like to try another color.
Have you tried Gingerly?
