MAC Peach Blossom: The People-Pleasing Lipstick

Me and MAC Lipsticks we go way back. Creme Cup was my gateway – I went through two of those cool-toned bullets of creamy pink – then there was the Shy Girl phase which led on to my current love, Patisserie. There have been some misses on the way including Myth and a limited edition shade, Playing Koianyone remember that? – which was basically a concealer in lipstick disguise that I used to thickly apply while my boyfriend looked on in horror. But I think I may have found perhaps my favourite lipstick of all their range so far – Peach Blossom.

I fell for it at first swatch at the MAC Counter in Edinburgh Airport (a hauling occasion I spoke about on Monday). It’s a cremesheen formula, which in my opinion are the best texture MAC makes: buttery colours that hit the perfect spot between moisture and pigment. The colour is a tough one to pinpoint but is best described as my lips but a tad peachier, in fact it’s one of the closest matches to my natural lip colour that I’ve found. And yep it’s a people pleaser. Whoever I’ve whipped this out and slapped it on in front of has ooh-ed and ahh-ed accordingly and then promptly added it to their iPhone housed shopping list.

Think Shy Girl and Hue mixed together with a dash of the browny tones from Parisserie and there you have it. The MAC formula for the perfect people pleasing, lip enhancing, can’t go wrong with it, boyfriend doesn’t look too perplexed when you pop it on shade.

    Do you find it very similar to Patisserie? Trying to justify it to myself by saying that they are very different 😛

    It looks a lot like MAC Syrup lipstick, but that could just be the lighting in the photographs.

    Have you ever tried “Fanfare” by MAC Anna? I think you’d really like it!

    Have you tried Mac’s japanese maple or pure zen? Also looovely, similar shades.

  • Stevie-Rose Miller

    I bought this colour specifically because I wanted a lovely nude lipstick for my graduation and my gosh, I love it so much! It is literally the perfect shade and works well on so many complexions too. And now when I wear it I can think back to my graduation ceremony and remember how far I’ve come, almost like music can bring you back to moments in life!

  • Beauty by Berrymix

    Yep, I’m adding it to my list too! I’m kind of over Shy Girl at the moment and I’m looking for a new nude-y lip color to replace it with.
