However, for some reason I felt like I needed it in my life at this point, so I swapped for it on MUA.
It is very similar in colour to BeneTint and some others I own, check them HERE. But, the formula is VERY different, purely because it's a gel and not a liquid. I have been intrigued in gel type blushers that give a glossy finish after I tried the liqui gel stain by Beaute. Liquid blushes tend to be matte, whereas gel or cream formulas tend to be glossy.
I would describe the colour as a deep raspberry with a cool red undertone.
The consistency feels a bit like a smooth creamy lip balm, it doesn't feel oily and instead feels like it's water based. The colour in the pot looks extremely scary and clownish, but the payoff is actually really sheer and the colour is buildable. It's exactly what I expected. I don't see this lasting on my skin all day unless I top it with powder, but I would rather reapply.
See swatches below...
Here is 'just a pinch' gel blush applied on my cheeks (I used my fingers), I have also applied Mac's 'Strobe liquid' which enhances the glow on my cheekbone. They are perfect together specially for the Summer! The result is a dewy "fresh faced" and "innocently flushed" look.
By the way... I hate you Mac for making such wonderful items Limited edition - repromote please!
Have you tried this or any other gel blush?
