MAC Well Dressed blush: Review + Swatches!

 Hey everyone,
Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite everyday go-to blushes: MAC Well Dressed.

Well Dressed is described as an 'Immaculate Pink'...whatever that means.  Personally, i would describe it as a cool toned light pink with a satin finish. This is definitely one of those best friend blush colours that pairs well with every makeup look from very neutral to dramatic as it simply adds a nice feminine pink flush to the cheeks.

Well Dressed has pretty low pigmentation, which is really disappointing considering how much hype there is surrounding it.  Just from my experience and from reading other reviews, I would say that the best way to get decent colour payoff with this blush would be to apply it with a more dense blush brush, such as an angled
MAC 168.  When used with a denser brush, this blush gives my NW20 skin a very nice, soft flush of colour.

*I spent a good 15 minutes running around trying to get a swatch of Well Dressed to show up on my camera, but it absolutely refused. So, here's a link to a post with a beautiful swatch of this blush.  Sorry guys!*

That being said, I would only recommend this blush for fair to medium skin tones as it will not show up well on darker complexions.  This is also a really nice blush to have if you are a beginner to makeup as it blends very nicely and due to the lack of pigmentation, it is very hard to go over board with it.

MAC powder blushes retail for $21 US and $25CND and contain 6g/0.21 oz of product.  Well Dressed is part of the permanent collection and can be purchased wherever MAC products are sold!

What's your favourite blush shade?

  1. I have wanted to try this because it seems to be one of MAC's best sellers! Kind of bummed it isn't that pigmented, but could be good for a natural makeup day!
