There are a lot of signs people use to signal the end of days but a limited edition MAC compact still being available weeks after launch is the most blaring one for me! Can you believe Superb is still available?? I sure can’t! It’s such a pleasant surprise though because limited edition MAC products have been SO difficult to catch lately. The moment I spotted it on Nordies I knew I had to post a review as soon as possible!

MAC Pleasure Model Blush Review

I’m sure a lot of you ladies are heading into the new year with hopes of cutting down those impulsive makeup buys. It’s a great resolution and I’m going to let you finish that but…………..Pleasure Model is the best blush of all time! I seriously can’t get enough of it!

Pleasure Model was my first time trying the Extra Dimension blush formula and it certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact, I wonder why MAC hasn’t made the Extra Dimension line part of the permanent collection. They’re hands down the best MAC products I’ve tried! Pleasure Model is very finely milled and soft. It’s easy to pick up pigment with any type of brush. I prefer to use a fluffy natural haired one though. The formula is incredibly easy to blend and it melts seamlessly into the skin giving the most natural finish. Pleasure Model looks more like a natural flush of color than an outright blush on me. I just love it!

Pleasure Model is a warm copper toned orange with a slight sheen. I’m a huge fan of orange blush on brown gals so it’s no surprise this has become my everyday blush. As I mentioned earlier, Pleasure Model looks so natural against my skin tone and adds such a beautiful glow to my complexion. I think it would look lovely on lighter complexions as well! I’m not sure how cool toned ladies might like it I’ve seen Pleasure Model work very well for those with neutral or warmer undertones. Pleasure Model is pigmented so lighter ladies would have to use a lighter hand. The color and finish is very soft on me so I can build Pleasure Model quite a bit without looking overdone. It wears well for around 8-9 hours before I notice any fading.

I honestly can’t find one negative thing to say about Pleasure Model other than the fact that it’s limited edition. You can check out Pleasure Model online or at your local MAC counter. Happy hauling!
