Mac Peachtwist Blush Review & Swatches

Get my dad on the dance floor, and whether you have Honey Singh or Rihanna blaring from the speakers there is just one move he knows- the twist. I think its a problem with everyon born in the seventies really …. but the only kind of twist I know how to do is the one by Mac- this Peachtwist blush is the one I picked up on a visit to the mac store (Read about 5 other blushes I tried here)


I first spotted Peachtwist when i went trousseau shopping with my bestie. She is 2 shades darker than me but it looked absolutely phenomenal on her !! So i bought this kind of without even trying it on me, and even though I love it on me I have to say its even more beautiful on darker skintones.

Mac Peachtwist Blush is a warm, deep apricot color. Like a beautiful peachy orange with subtle gold shimmer. If you are a darker girl and keep complaining about blushes not showing up on you, you HAVE to try Peach twist- it looks super pretty on darker girls. It looks nice on me as well, but might turn a bit too orange for lighter skintones.

Sheertone Shimmers are finishes that can be built up slowly, but honestly this one is pretty pigmented at one go itself. The gold shimmer is actually lovely and it doesn’t show at all except if someone is really looking at you intently (like a stalker), otherwise it just glistens!






Lipstick worn: Mac Style Surge Mixed with some random pink lipstick


Price: 1500/-

Recommendation: Mac Peachtwist is one of the best blushes for darker girls (iv tried this on girls two shades darker and it looks lovelier on them than on me). A beautiful warm apricot, this gives warmth, color and a sunkissed look for the summer sun!

Really pretty shade. And love the lipstick too that you are wearing..


Rashi @sincerelylazy April 22, 2014 at 3:33 pm

Very pretty! Any idea how it compares to Peachykeen and Nars Orgasm? I’ve been thinking of getting a shimmery apricot blush, now torn between these 3!


mehak April 22, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Peachykeen and orgasm are both much lighter and pinker. This is more orange and deeper

I have this and totally agree on the darker skin part. It looks nice on me , but not enough to make it love it as much. It looks lovely on you. :)


Manasi April 22, 2014 at 4:30 pm

Such a pretty shade dear!!


pari April 22, 2014 at 4:33 pm

Hey mehak you look so nice and more than your blush i liked your lips Shade and i loved it.Nice color..


Rini April 22, 2014 at 4:38 pm

This looks so summery! Slightly off topic, but I let all hell loose (in two cities, that too!) to get hold of Dreaming Dahlia and thanks are due to you else I’d have never known about it. I think it would go well with Peach Twist *runs to MAC store yet again* :D


mehak April 22, 2014 at 4:47 pm

Hehe ! Yes it will look fab with peach twist!!!


Priyanjana April 22, 2014 at 4:39 pm

Thanks! i guess I will buy this one! i still don’t have a single blush ! i must experiment now !


laks April 22, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Very pretty shade! You look beautiful Mehak!


D's Mom April 22, 2014 at 7:01 pm

Hahaha…totally agree about the seventies obsession with the twist :)
This blush does look lovely on you.
Just wondering, what if the stalker doesn’t like shimmer….oh never mind :D


Meghana April 22, 2014 at 7:55 pm

this looks a great shade.


Rupali April 22, 2014 at 8:44 pm

you look pretty Mehak

please do not mind but your dad is born in the 70s? and you in the 80s??? how?

I am only 16 and my dad is born in the 50s lol haha :)


mehak April 23, 2014 at 1:00 pm…born in the mid 60’s…
I keep referring to their generation as the ‘seventies’ cos all their songs and all were 70’s ke song.


mily April 22, 2014 at 10:52 pm

haha..this looks like expensive pink in blush form :D …you look pretty :D


Embellished April 22, 2014 at 11:33 pm

This looks gorgeous on you!


Amrit Bhullar April 23, 2014 at 12:27 am

Definitely trying this one out….looks so damn good on you..


Vineetha April 23, 2014 at 5:12 am

I love this one! One of the must haves from MAC for Indian skin tones!


desipolitan April 23, 2014 at 9:31 am

Lovely! Have you tried MAC’s Trace Gold sheertone blush? It’s the closest dupe to their discontinued Honour, which was amazing on desi complexions.


mehak April 26, 2014 at 8:47 pm

not tried that one yet!


Supria April 23, 2014 at 10:49 am

Anything apricot and peachy has to be mine! Those blushes look so beautiful on deeper skintones, I agree. I am just not sure about the shimmer in this one. Will check it out on my next MAC visit.


Shailja@BeABrideEveryday April 23, 2014 at 11:53 am

Very pretty yet sober shade !


Rashmi April 23, 2014 at 12:53 pm

Beautiful shade…perfect for summers..I liked your lip shade as well Mehak…:-)


Shivi@COSMOCHICS April 23, 2014 at 3:49 pm

Very pretty shade!
I dad twists too! lol :)


Reva November 18, 2014 at 12:12 pm

I’m a NC 42. Will this blush look good on me? Or should I instead try MAC Peaches instead of twist
