Guest review by Gurpreet (Light skin tone, Normal to Dry skin)

There are some MAC products that every MAC lover would own by default. In lipsticks its Diva, Captive, All fired up, Mehr etc. and in blushes – Peaches, Gingerly and Fleur power. Another such blush from the Sheertone shimmer range from MAC is Sunbasque; popular as a blush cum bronzer.

For the uninitiated, MAC Powder blushes come in 5 finishes – Sheertone, Sheertone Shimmer, Matte, Satin and Frost. While I am more of a matte eye shadow and blush person, I couldn’t resist the finish that this blush offered. The shimmers gave a beautiful sparkly sun kissed look and looked apt even for the day wear without looking gaudy.



Packaging : It comes in a black round plastic package with a transparent lid that has MAC written on it. The packaging is super practical and allows a person to view the shade of the blush. The packaging is quite sturdy; however there are no mirrors or applicators inside.

Shade : The shade of this blush is a peachy brown with fine golden shimmers. Once can easily assume this to be a bronzer. The intensity of the blush can be easily controlled and it offers a beautifully tanned look.

Formula : The blush is finely milled with no fall outs. The blush is soft and smooth in terms of application and blends well without any form of cakey-ness. The blush texture is quite sheer and one can layer on more product as required to give the desired look.


Finish/Effect : MAC sheer tone shimmer blush Sunbasque renders a gorgeous sun kissed beachy look. The shimmers show up the way evening sunshine falls on the skin to render a glamorous look without being over the top. The color of the blush gives a nice bronzer effect.

Lasting power : Sunbasque lasts easily for 3 to 4 hours on oily skin and more than 5 hours on normal skin tone. Post which it kind of disappears leaving a bit of shimmer behind.


Pros :

  • Blush and bronzer in one.
  • Renders a sun kissed glow
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Non-acne genic
  • Easily blendable
  • Can be worn for both day and night.

Cons :

  • Expensive


Verdict : A+

Price : Rs. 1950 for 6 gm

Recommendation : Like MAC Peaches, Sunbasque is a HG blush for every MAC lover. The blush cum bronzer effect it renders is commendable.
