MAC Frankly Scarlett Blush Review



This is the first blusher that I have purchased to add to my MAC Pro Blush Palette. A couple of months ago, I was struggling with my OCD and it hit a whole new level. I was unhappy with everything and as I looked in my makeup draws, it affected me to a point where I made an irrational decision to throw everything in the bin, including all of my blushers. I don’t really know what it was, I think I was tired of having hundreds of compacts in no particular order. So, from that I thought the best thing to do would be to create a MAC Palette and select 6 shades that work the best for me, that I can reach for time and time again, so I don’t end up with a collection that is out of control.

For each of the shades that I am going to buy for this palette I am going to make sure I really look into them and even try to go into a store before I commit and spend my money. I want to make sure that all of the shades are easy and wearable, so that I get lots of use out of them and to make sure that none of them are going to be a waste of money for me. So, after a long time looking online and even going into my local MAC store and having a play around with the shades, I finally decided that the first shade that I add to my palette should be one of their most popular shades which is Frankly Scarlett.

The reason why I went for the shade Franky Scarlett is because it shows up really well on my skin. I have an olive complexion and I think that the pink of this blusher seems to work really well with my natural colouring. I find that quite often, hell of a lot of blushers are too light for my complexion, or they do not end up showing true to the shade that is in the pan. I had a play around with this one and I looked at some swatches online with people with various skin tones and I couldn’t deny that this was the most stunning shade and I felt like it was a really great place to start.

What I love about his blusher and MAC Blushes in particular is how beautiful they glide onto the skin and how easy they are to blend. Even if I went in and applied far too much of a MAC Blusher, I know that all I would have to do is take a clean MAC 187 Duo Fibre Brush and with some light blending, it quickly looks lovely on the skin and merges into the skin absolutely beautifully. I have tried a couple different MAC Blushes over the years and I feel like this has been the case with all of them, and that is one of the main reasons why I decided to create a palette dedicated to MAC.




This MAC Frankly Scarlet Blush is so lovely and creamy, and I think that is what makes it so nice and workable on the skin. I like to apply this blusher by taking a small amount on an angled brush like the Morphe E4 and I will apply it directly to the apples of my cheeks, then using circular motions I will blend it back along my cheekbones and it just makes it looks nice and natural. Once, I have my blusher on my face, like I said earlier I will take a clean blending brush and just buff over the whole area to make sure that it all blends into the skin beautifully and seamlessly.

There really isn’t much more that I can say about an individual blusher, so I will start to round up my blog post. I think that this is a great product and I love reaching for it. It blends into the skin like a dream and it has the perfect level of pigmentation. I am so happy that I started out with this Frankly Scarlett shade and I cannot wait to buy some more and build up my collection. I will leave a link down below to this blusher in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what your favourite blusher is and I will have to check it out for myself!

  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
