On my previous trips to MAC, i had never given this blush a second glance as it looked very bland in the pan, and just looked undesirable next to the more appealing-at-first-glance blushes MAC has to offer. This time around, i decided to take a leap of faith and buy Gingerly, and I am so glad i did!
This is a 100% matte blush, so if you prefer sparkly blushes such as NARS Orgasm, i would skip over this blush. I've applied this using both a MAC 116 and a MAC 188 and i find that it applied beautifully with both and blends like a dream.
Although at first glance Gingerly does not look like anything special, it is truly an amazing blush that gives your cheeks a warm, healthy glow without looking over the top. I would recommend it for all skin tones to anyone looking for a matte, neutral blush shade.
MAC blushes can be purchased online at maccosmetics.com, or at any MAC counter or store. They cost $20 US and $23 CND for 6 g of product.
I had a lot of difficulties photographing this blush, and after a lot of complaints about how the photographs turned out, I promised I would retake them once I found better lighting. I finally found a decent spot to photograph this blush, so here the new photos are! (Photos updated 24/02/12)
