Buddy

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Buddy Powder Blush Duo ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a rose with a matte finish and a shimmery plum. Swirled together, they create a pearly, rosy plum. The matte side wasn’t quite as good as the shimmery shade, but they were both decent to good blushes. The two shades work well together, layered, or worn alone, though the shimmery shade is narrow enough that most blush brushes would not fit well (without getting some of the matte shade on them).

Authentic Red

MAC Authentic Red Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark ruby red with cooler undertones and fine, red pearl paired with a natural sheen–a little shine but not truly glossy. The consistency was denser and lightly tacky, so the bullet dragged a bit as it applied but moved more readily as the warmth of my lips melted the lipstick. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that went on evenly. It wore well for five hours, left a subtle, reddish stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Compassion

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Compassion Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, golden pearl. It’s part of the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural family, so it had noticeably less shimmer and was nowhere near as metallic on the skin as a result, but it wasn’t matte like the permanent range of Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powders either.

The finish is what made it a more standout product to me–it was luminous without being visibly shimmery on the skin. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, while it had full coverage in one layer, though it could easily be sheered out as well. It wore well eight hours on me before fading.
