MAC Frankly Scarlett Blush

This is the first blush in my MAC blush palette. As many of you may or may not know but I have quite bad organisational OCD. It isn’t diagnosed or anything but it really does bother me. And one thing that gets to me is my makeup all over. Where I can depot and palletise my products I will. It is so much neater and organised this way.

I did show it on my Snapchat but a few months ago when my OCD was at a very high level I had a little melt down and everything that didn’t have a place was binned. I was tired of opening my drawers and having lose eyeshadows and blushers everywhere. So they went in the bin!

It sounds ridiculous I know, but doing that was like finally getting satisfaction. My mood improved after that and I could stop panicking. But then I realised I had no makeup. So I started buying individuals to put into palettes. So I am going to get 6 different MAC blushes and build up a palette. And, the first one into the palette is the MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush.

This is such a stunning shade. I find that this works really well on my olive complexion. As much as I like bright blushes to add light to the face they just don’t seem to show up very well on my skin.

This colour however is just everything for medium and Mediterranean skin tones. The pink in this colour is quite strong so you need to apply it with a very light hand. Just remember that you can always add more, but you can’t take it away without ruining the foundation underneath.

I like to apply this with an angled brush lightly onto the apples of my cheeks and then with whatever product remains on the brush I will take this back along the cheekbones. This just helps to make it look more natural and blended rather than two big dots on the cheeks.

The texture of this blush is so nice and creamy which really helps when you are trying to blend it out. Not only do I use this as a blush but I use it as an eyeshadow as well. Just remember that there are no rules to makeup and you can use whatever product, anywhere you want. Recently cranberry tones around the eyes and in the crease have been huge and this is the perfect tone for that.

So this is the first instalment of my new MAC blush palette. So there will be 5 more posts of MAC blushes.

Thank you for reading and like normal if you have a tutorial, review or want to know anything just let me know down in the comments or drop me an email and I would be more than honoured to do that for you. I will leave a link below to where you can find this MAC blush and some of my other favourites!



  1. So true that you can always add more whereas it's so much harder to remove once the damage is done with blusher! I get really bad OCD sometimes too so I can appreciate how you must have felt, it's so good to have a clear out sometimes anyway! Such a great way of collecting shades which suit your skintone too rather than having to have a palette which has some colours you wont use. Great post :) xx
