All Peachy for Brown Beauties by MAC

All Peachy for Brown Beauties by MAC

Peach conjures images of spring and summer, it oozes femininity and is just soooo pretty.

Also peach is one of those colours that take 10 years of your age instantly, with the warmth of the shade exuding youth.

I’ve always struggled to find the perfect peach lippie for my dark skin . . . most are brown lippies with a hint of peach with shade names like peachy/coral bliss or peaches and cream or peach or coral  ‘what what’

Who are they trying to kid? I find the shade selection hurl-worthy!

 Then I stumbled across MAC’s Kinda Sexy



MAC describes it was a Neutral Pinky Rose, swatched as a dark peach with a rose undertone with hints of mocha (now that's a kinda shade I'm talking about). All round is looks like a pretty peach on my lips. This is a great every day lipstick for dark skinned girls like me, who want liven up a neutral look that’s uber feminine and fresh.

This is a matte formula, so prep those lips with a slathering of lip balm.I  use this with MAC lip liner in Subculture but you can use it with out a liner or NYX Nectar lip liner. It’s also great if you have pigmented lips like me., it covers everything.

Then there’s MAC’s Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen. For those who may not know, this finish gives a wash of colour that will bring a subtle glow to your cheeks with a bit of shimmer. This is a dupe for NARS Orgasm blush, one of the most sought after blushes. Of course, we don't get that here and to be honest, MAC Springsheen is the business!

It’s golden sheen has just the right amount of shimmer for the day and I do not wear a highlighter when using this shade.  


Now that’s huge for me . . . I love highlighters as you know.

MAC Sheertone Shimmer blush can be built up to intense glam for a night out and is super pigmented.

Beauties with darker skin tones will rock this look because it  warms up the golden tones in the skin. While it will suit those with olive and tan skin tones, it may look too orange on very pale skin. But you can always test it out and see if it makes you feel peachy J

It wears a good few hours on my skin before fading a touch, but that’s great staying power for a sheer blush.


On my lips MAC Kinda Sexy with MAC Subculture lip liner. On my cheeks MAC Springsteen Sheertone Shimmer Blush. I haven't used any highlighter or bronzer.

Well, all I can say is Ke Summer Boss!
