MAC Peechykeen and Springsheen are amongst my favourite blushes. I was recently asked by a reader to do a comparison for shopping purposes. I was happy to oblige since waffling about make-up is my thing.
Here are the two beauties in question…
Left to right: Peechykeen, Springsheen
You’ll notice from the picture at the bottom of this post that in the palette these blushes look almost identical. But when separated from other shades you can really see the difference.
I buy my MAC blushes and shadows in pan form so they can easily be popped into palettes without the hassle of de-potting – it also saves cuts and wounds which I managed to inflict upon my person at every de-potting opportunity.
And some swatches….
Peechykeen, on the left, is well, a peach. Springsheen on the other hand is a more rose/peach. It also has a touch of gold through it. Neither have glitter of shimmer, both are warm toned, wearable and natural.
With more intensity…
Peechykeen adds the same warmth that a bronzer provides for fair skin and works great with neutral and skin with warm undertones. Springsheen is a warm and pretty option for someone with a cool undertone but it would work on most skintones. If you have Rosacea or skin redness Springsheen is probably best avoided since it will make you look too rosy.
Here is one of my MAC blush palettes. Peechykeen and Springsheen and on the second row.

Although I like Springsheen, Peechykeen does wonders for my skin tone and complexion. It makes me look awake, alive but still natural. It also has a warming effect on the skin. My favourite way to wear it is with Blunt as a contour shade, Perfect Topping MSF on my cheekbone and Peechykeen on the apples, making sure to blend away any lines.
