MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush

MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a natural sheen. It looks lighter in the pan, but after you swipe the first layer off, it looks a bit darker (truer to the swatch). Make Up For Ever #12 is similar but a little more tangerine. Make Up For Ever #5 is redder and darker.

MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush

MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright coral” on the press release, but between you and me, that’s completely wrong. When it was originally launched in MAC in Lillyland, it was described as a “bright fuchsia,” which is so much more accurate. It is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with strong blue undertones. MAC Overdyed is similar but slightly darker. MAC Amazon Princess is also very similar, perhaps a touch less pink. MAC Her Blooming Cheek has a bit more of a sheen but the color comes close.

MAC Sunday Afternoon Pearlmatte Face Powder

MAC Sunday Afternoon Pearlmatte Face Powder ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as “clean bright pink, bright clean fuchsia, soft pale pink with white pearl.” The first shade is a cotton candy pink w ith blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. The middle shade is a dark pink with a subtle pearled sheen. The bottom shade is a pink-tinted white with a frosted shimmer-sheen. Together, they create a shimmery light-medium pink with subtle cool undertones. NARS New Order is cooler toned. MAC Blonde is similar in the pink tones, but not quite the same together. I feel like there are more dupes, but I couldn’t think of anything else.

MAC Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte Face Powder

MAC Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte Face Powder ($28.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as “pale coral with slight gold pearl, slightly blue pale pink, soft pale salmon.” The largest shade is a dirty coral; it’s a little brown, little coral, with a subtle sheen.  The smaller color in the middle (so-to-speak) is a pale rosy pink with a pearly sheen. The final shade in the palette is a frosted peach champagne. Together, they create a warm peach-pink with a shimmer-sheen finish. If you want less shimmer in your finish, avoid the bottom portion of the palette. Chanel Pink Cloud is lighter and less pink. Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel is less shimmery, pinker. MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz is more of a dirty pink. MAC Oh So Fair is lighter, less pink.
