Yes, I know this is suppose to a review of Peachykeen, but before that, there's an important announcement I have to make. =P
I was chatting with THE Malaysian Blush Queen, ParisB, yesterday when I decided to seek some advice from Her Royal Blushness.
"Would an order of 2 NYX blushers and 4 Mosaic Powders be a little of a blush overkill?" I ask.
"No. Not at all," says she. "After all, a girl can NEVER have too many blushers."
Ahhh.. spoken like a true blush queen. I like her very much indeed. And so the conversation went back and forth, mainly on the topic of blushers, and finally with much generosity, she handed me a tiara of my own! =)
I believe I am now Blush Princess! Ahem.. *adjusts pretty tiara* =P
With the fanfare now out of the way, on to the review!
If you click here, you'll read Kahani's declaration of her undying love for a blush called Springsheen. It's her first blush in a MAC collection that's slowly, but surely, growing. *evil grin* And as much as it troubles me, yes, it HAS been discontinued.
However, blush subjects rejoice! For all it not lost.
Behold, the Peachykeen. While it's not an exact match to Springsheen, I'd say it's a pretty damn close shade alright. I find Springsheen a little more peachy. Peachykeen, on the other hand, is a little more corally-pink.

They're both sheertone shimmer blushes, and come with gold shimmer, which I like very much. Gives the cheeks a bit of a healthy glow when applied, and frankly, who doesn't want to look glowy, right? Of course right. =P
(LEFT: Springsheen, RIGHT: Peachykeen. Similar no? If you click on the photo, you can even see the shimmer in the enlarged pic.)
Like Springsheen, you can use Peachykeen on its own. Dusted lightly, it would complement the summer skintone very nicely. Or dust this blush first for base, and use Peachykeen for a pop. Be warned though, sheertone as it may be, a light hand works best for this baby.
I don't own the notorious orgasmic blush from NARS to compare firsthand, but with what I've seen and read, I would believe Peachykeen is comparable to its infamous NARS counterpart. You can read here, here and here for more Orgasm wannabes.
Hmmm.. anything else you'll need to know? Ah yes, I had to fork out RM70 to bring all 6gms of her home. But I believe she may cost more now. RM75 me thinks.
Now I wonder how Coralista will compare? Hmmm... *adjusts tiara*
