MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette (Spring 2016)

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette ($65.00 for 1.01 oz.) includes a highlighting/contour duo, bronzer, and four blushes. Three of the blushes are exclusive to the palette with one blush being part of an exclusive offering for Sephora VIB Rouge members (as a single). Strangely, the Paloma duo, which is available in the permanent range (see my original review here), was very chalky and clumpy in the palette–it felt smooth and soft to the touch, but it looked dry and chalky on the skin. I wish NARS (and other brands guilty of it) wouldn’t include one-size-fits-all contouring products; matte highlighters are also difficult to make inclusive (without the shimmer, it is hard to salvage one that really doesn’t work for one’s skin tone).
