MAC Tenderling Blush: Review + Swatch!

Today I want to share one of my most loved blushes with you.  MAC Tenderling is a light, nude/brown pink with a sheertone finish.  This is one of the first blush shades I ever wore, because it was subtle enough to allow me to get used to the idea of wearing blush without having too much color on my cheeks.

If you are fair skinned enough that you struggle to find blush shades that work for you, Tenderling is great.  It really is so light that even if I have a little color on my skin, it is no longer dark enough for me.  This blush works great in the dead of winter!

Here's the blush in my hand... products always look so different in a palm versus on a white background!

The formulation of Tenderling is really great.  It is pigmented, blends easily, and the sheertone finish keeps it from looking too matte or chalky.  This could also work as a contour color on some complexions!

MAC powder blushes contain 6g/.21 oz of product and retail for $20.  Tenderling is part of their permanent collection, and can be purchased wherever MAC cosmetics are sold.

Overall, I recommend this to people with fair to light complexions!  It's subtle color makes it a great everyday blush for a "no-makeup", natural look.

What is your favorite natural looking blush?
xx, Allison
