Another forgotten item in my stash, a gorgeous peachy pink blush: MAC Springsheen. Let’s face it—I bought this, highly influenced by its name. I was looking for a few blushes to try out since I’ve never gotten around to trying blushes from MAC.
I know it looks familiar—Springsheen looks quite close to the ubiquitous NARS blush, Orgasm. While they are very similar, Orgasm is a little pinker and a touch more golden.
I like this blush because it is light enough to use as a highlighter, but also adds some color when/if you need it to be a blush. This is also pretty perfect as a companion to other blushes, if you’re into mixing shades and textures. It’s a “Sheertone Shimmer,” which I’m assuming means that it has a bit of shimmer to it. You never really actually see the gold flecks on your face, though, which I find pretty awesome.
If you enjoy the color, I’ll be honest… it shows up better on fairer skin. On my medium (here, even recently-tanned) skin, it just adds a perfect amount of extra warmth and glow. If you haven’t tried Springsheen, I think it’s quite a pretty blush to try out and see if it works for you.
MAC does not test on animals unless required by law.
Oooh, I think I like this more than Orgasm.
How DO you like Orgasm? I’m curious! I don’t see the “big deal,” but after wearing it again for a while recently, I ended up really liking it.
It’s not a big deal, and I don’t own it because there are so many cheaper dupes there, like NYX Pinched. I really do love the subtle gold shimmer though
The nars orgasm is heavy on the gold side good thing this is more subtle! Lovely tan btw 🙂
Yep, Orgasm was my first high end blush. 🙂 This is definitely a lot more subtle, especially when it comes to the gold flecks. Thanks, Hazel! 🙂
I’m a NARS orgasm user but I love how this MAC Springsheen is not as gold (which is great when I’m not so tanned in the winter). Will definitely be giving this a try!
Great! 🙂 Hope it works out well for you. 🙂
Really pretty blusher! I like pink/gold hues 🙂
I rather like them, too. Even out of spring and summer. 🙂
You have a really even tan! Pretty.
Thanks, Erika! x
