MAC Gingerly Blush: Review & Swatch!

Today's featured product is another blush from the neutral/brown MAC blush family (check out my review on MAC Equilibrium here!). Gingerly is one of MAC's most famous blushes, and now I understand why. It's a very unique color, and I feel like it would flatter most skin tones. I would describe it as a brick-brown, because there are definitely red and orange tones in it.


Gingerly has a sheertone finish, which I like because I've always felt that sheertones are the easiest to wear: they have color but don't apply heavily.


I am pleasantly surprised with the way this looks on my skin. I thought the red/orange tones would make it harder to wear, but they actually add a nice glow to your face while still keeping the overall blush neutral. I think it's really pretty!


If you would like to see how this blush looks on my cheeks, I have a new video all out my favorite blush brands, blushes, and brushes up on my YouTube beauty channel where I am wearing Gingerly. Check it here: Best of Blush: Brands, Blushes, and Brushes!

Would you wear it? xx, Allison

  14. Would this blush work on people that have cool undertones to their skin? I'm an NW20, and I'm scared of looking like an Oompa Loompa with this blush, but it looks so pretty!
