HD Cherry Tree

MAC HD Cherry Tree Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with a hint of warm paired with a satin finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation (up to semi-opaque) that applied evenly over bare skin and wasn’t prone to lifting up base products. The texture was smooth to the touch, like a cream-powder hybrid that was slightly putty-like as it could be depressed but didn’t feel wet to the touch. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.25 oz. - $120.00 Per Ounce

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to have "eight-hour, fade-free wear" with an "ultra-blendable" formula that has "sheer" but buildable coverage with a "gel-cream texture" that is "bouncy." It's gel-to-powder blush that has a lightly emollient, slightly sponge-like quality to it--more like a smoother, more emollient clay-like texture to me--that feels more like powder as soon as it comes into contact with my skin.

The pigmentation was definitely more sheer to semi-sheer, buildable to medium to semi-opaque coverage with some of the deeper/darker hues in the range having more coverage and better building capabilities. I preferred using fingertips for application as I felt it was easier to faster to apply, though fingertips will yield slightly higher coverage compared to a brush. The formula applied well--most of the time--over bare skin as well as over base products like liquid foundation without lifting it up. They wore eight hours before starting to show signs of fading.
