A while ago I showed you the sneak peek of MAC Fiery Impact Blush from In Extra Dimension 2013 (it will be available in Belgium on April 12th), and now I’m back with the look and my final verdict! Curious? Let’s find out how it performs!
Just as a quick recap, MAC Fiery Impact Blush has a gelee texture, which means it feels like a cross between power, gel, and cream. The great thing about such a formula is it’s never “powdery.” You can’t see any grains of powder, and it truly melts into the skin. On me, Fiery Impact is a bronzy rosy coral. I think warm-toned ladies will have a great time rocking this shade!
From what I just said, you can probably already guess Fiery Impact swept me off my feet! It is pretty pigmented, but not pigmented to a point that you will easily overdo. It blends out very easily, and it really melts into the skin instead of looking powdery or sitting on top of it. The fine “shimmer” you can see under the light translates into a very delicate sheen on the skin, so nothing “shimmery” or “frosty” here at all! It can also be built up very easily, so even if your skin tone is darker than mine (NC 25-30), you won’t have problems getting it to show.
I have two layers of Fiery Impact on here. It is already more than what I would normally wear (my problem with blush is I systematically underdo it), but I thought this way you can see the color better:
Just to see if I could go any further, I did three layers here:
Definitely overdone, but now you know if you have a darker skin tone or want a pigmented blush, MAC Fiery Impact would be a good option!
I have no problem with the lasting power either. It wears well for about 7 hours before it starts to fade evenly.
Bottom line: MAC Fiery Impact Blush is superbly fine, blendable, and pigmented. The color will be very flattering on warmer skin tones, and can be worn as a light, well-blended layer as well as much heavier for drama or on darker skin tones. Now I can’t wait to check out the rest of them because Fiery Impact definitely made an impression!
