I love the Glow Play Lip Balms, and I’ve been loving the blushers too, but I’ve got such a crazy backlog of reviews to write, so I’m only now getting round to writing about them…
“Touch and glow. Play your way with all-new bouncy blush. This innovative ultra-smooth, cushiony blush creates a flawlessly radiant look when applied with fingers or a brush. Eleven blendable shades delivered in one creamy, buildable formula provide a pinch of foolproof, sheer-to-medium buildable colour.“
The MAC Glow Play Blush collection have a super sleek, matte frosted plastic casing, and I absolutely love it. It looks so much more chic than their typical black packaging, and I love how much they stand out within my blush drawer.
Some have commented on the packaging being cheap, but I don’t find that to be the case at all. The lip balms from the Glow Play range also have clear packaging, and I’d be here for more launches in this packaging.
Although, I don’t find that the formula applies nicely with a brush, like a normal cream blusher, but I’ve found they’re best applied with fingertips, or a beauty sponge. They don’t move your foundation around when applied, like some cream formulas can.
I don’t find this formula to be as long wearing as the MAC CremeBlend Cream Blushers (I’m gutted they discontinued them), but they last for around four to five hours before signs of fading.
The MAC Glow Play Blush is available in twelve different shades, and this is the shade Cheeky Devil. I own three of them now, but Cheeky Devil is described as being a light pink, which it is, but it has a hint of peach too.
It’s a very light shade, so it’s a pale-skin friendly kind of colour, and skintones any deeper than mine would potentially struggle to see it, even when built up, but it looks beautiful applied over makeup, and on no-makeup makeup days, for when you want just a hint of colour – I love them!
