For the love of Ginger! MAC Sheertone blush in Gingerly

MAC Sheertone blush in Gingerly ($22)
Gingerly is one of my all-time MAC favorite blushes. I just put a refill pan in my cart because MAC currently has an online sale of 30% off everything! The refill pan is $18, but with the 30% discount it’s $12.60.


I am surrounded by ginger…


I’ve been drinking a lot of ginger ale this week because my tummy’s been obnoxiously gurgly, and I’ve also been, at times, concurrently wearing MAC Gingerly blush ($25).

Maybe this is a lot more than a coincidence…or maybe it isn’t, and I just have a need to find deep connections between absolutely unrelated things (story of my life).

My fridge has an entire shelf dedicated to ginger ale…

Gingerly absolutely hearts bronzed skin. This warm matte peachy brown lends a charming natural flush to tan skin (highly recommended if you’re around an NC35 and up), and for this I love it!

Lighter lasses might love it, too. some of my paler friends describe it as a warm, rich terra cotta on their skin, but they also say that it can often look orangey.

MAC Gingerly on my cheeks…
Gingerly is part of the usually subtle MAC Sheertone blush family, but I’m not exactly sure why that is…because it looks very pigmented on my NC42 skin.

I really like how it warms my skin tone, and I also like that the finish, while matte, isn’t absolutely flat. Plus, it’s easy to blend.

Give it a try one of these days with an intense eye look or a lively lip. For me, when I wear a bold element, often I look a little worn out without some extra warmth on my cheeks, which Gingerly nicely adds.

Today’s trending topic: ginger

Where do you stand on the crucial issue of ginger?

It’s a very divisive plant, isn’t it? — like cilantro. Some people love the stuff, and some people don’t. in that way it’s also like thumb rings and French idea nails…

I don’t mind a little bit when it’s sweet, like in ginger ale or ginger snaps, but I’m normally NOT down with ginger in a lot of culinary dishes. I guess my tastebuds are really sensitive to it, because often when it’s in a dish, it’s the only thing I can taste.

My brother is the total opposite. He can literally gnaw on a piece of ginger root all afternoon, which is kind of funny considering that he used to be terrified of ginger when he was a kid.

Because when we were little, my mommy would bring us with her to the grocery store, and I’d get hold of a piece of ginger (usually the piece that looked a lot of like the gnarled hand of an evil wizard) and chase him around the store with it.


HAHA! bons tempos…
