Just a Pinch gel blush was released in 2009 with the A Rose Romance collection. Described by MAC as a “sheer red pink tint”, the solid bright red shade staring back at you can seem scary! However, just as it is described, it is a gorgeous sheer red when applied. No shimmers here.
I’ve used cream blushes before but never gel blushes so this really piqued my interest. Despite it being a gel blush, the consistency is a bit more solid. Being a gel blush means that just slightly tapping my finger against the surface provides more than enough colour for my cheeks!
It goes on smoothly and is very blendable. Dries within a couple of seconds and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind.
