MAC MONDAY | Toledo - Ripe Peach Blush Ombre Swatches & Review

There's something about an aesthetically pleasing makeup product that makes it hard to resist, as many a makeup lover knows. Such is the case with MAC's Blush Ombres, limited edition blushes that rarely pop up in their collections, but each time they do, beauty lovers tend to go into a tailspin and they sell out quickly.
Ripe Peach has appeared in two collections to date: Spring Colour Forecast (2010) and more recently, Toledo (2015), which is the packaging shown here. It sold out in insanely quickly with the Spring Colour Forecast release, so when it came out again, I was very eager to get my hands on it and fortunately I didn't have much trouble doing so. This peachy-coral gem is all that I hoped it would be and just as pretty when applied as it looks in the pan.

The Toledo packaging is delightfully quirky and I like the feel of the rubberized packaging. The magnetic closure snaps shut in a satisfying way, although the lack of mirror is somewhat annoying - you couldn't spring for a mirror, MAC?! While cute, the white packaging picks up marks like nobody's business though and is impossible to clean, although I suppose that's the case for rubberized packaging in general.

Ripe Peach is described as 'light coral'. One side is a pale pastel orange, the other a pinky-coral, with gold shimmer running throughout, though it's more prevalent on the orange side. The two shades mixed together become a warm peach which I find very flattering. The beauty of a blush like this is that you can control how much of each colour you pick up on your brush to create the shade that suits you best, it's like getting two for the price of one! 
Ripe Peach's formula is great, it yields even, buildable colour payoff and has a finely milled texture that sits well on skin and blends easily, too. I got eight and a half hours of wear from this blush, which is on par with my usual experience with MAC blushes.
