MAC Frankly Scarlet

Monday, July 02, 2012


Here's my second MAC blush purchase: Frankly Scarlet.

This is a blush I normally wouldn't be drawn to (mainly because it looks scary bright in the pan), but it's beautiful on (not that the picture really gave it justice)!

It is a matte bright red that leans a little pink. It is incredibly pigmented but it doesn't apply streaky. Warning: Applying too much can add a clown-like effect.

A little goes a long way with this blush and blending is key. It is much better to gradually add more blush that to spend precious morning minutes trying to buff this product out. The lasting power is amazing. After you put this on, you'll have a natural cheek flush all day long.

I typically use a regular blush brush to apply the product and then a big powder brush to buff it in. Brush selection is key with this blush.

Applied properly, Frankly Scarlet will brighten up any complexion! The two face shots depict the effect proper blending and product distribution can give.

  5. It looks like an eye shadow in the pan! Talk about not judging a blush by its pan colour! This looks so much better on! At least on you!
