MAC Life’s a Picnic & Oh My! Blushes

MAC Life’s a Picnic Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “hot reddish pink.” It’s a bold, bright medium coral-pink with very subtle undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with a really soft, smooth consistency that blended out easily on the skin and had a natural finish that didn’t emphasize pores but didn’t look too flat or powdery either. I actually found it looked linker and less coral the more I blended it out–I can see this one’s tone changing from person to person a little more than your average blush shade. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading. MAC Oh My! (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $8.49) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Makeup Geek Love Affair (P, $9.99) is more muted (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). NYX Pinched (P, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Milani Tea Rose (08) (LE, $7.99) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Vibration (270) (P, $45.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $32.00) is cooler (85% similar). theBalm Toile (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). Milani Lady Rouge (06) (LE, $7.99) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Red Water Lily (LE, $40.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Mocha (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Hipness (LE, $22.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Peaches & Cream (LE, $22.00) is cooler (80% similar). Sephora Collection Flirt It Up (06) (P, $15.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Fleur Power (P, $22.00) is lighter (80% similar). NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is lighter (80% similar). Too Faced How Deep is Your Love? (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC The Fashion Flock, Flocking Fabulous, Nice to Meet You Lipsticks

MAC The Fashion Flock Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright pink-coral [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s the more updated, velvety-smooth matte formula that glides on without tugging on the lips but has some shine to the end result for the first hour or so of wear. It was very pigmented, but the thicker consistency made it harder to apply without the thicker consistency gathering and emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for four and a half to five hours, but there was noticeable settling into lip lines over time. It was neither drying nor hydrating when I wore it. This shade is exclusive to maccosmetics.com. Colour Pop Donut (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D L'Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is darker (80% similar). NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Jeffree (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Girl Next Door (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flavour (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
