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).

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) contains a pinky-plum and a light pink, both with a matte finish. The lighter shade performs better than the dark shade (which is pretty terrible), and if you mix the two together, the more powdery light pink goes a long way to making the darker shade less frustrating to you use. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” Neither shade is highly pigmented nor do they wear any longer than most blushes (seven to eight hours) in my experience.

Kat Von D Piaf + Poe Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Piaf + Poe Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a muted, rosy pink set of shades, one lighter and one darker. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” I think that this particular duo was one of the better-applying shades and required slightly less effort to apply, but it still had a drier, chalkier consistency that made it hard to get more than semi-sheer color out of it. That drier texture seemed to give me trouble when blending, as the color would stick on some places more noticeably than others, but it would be hard to diffuse or blend, even when I reached for a really dense, buffing brush. The blush is actually easier to use when mixed, because the more powdery (but less chalky) consistency of the light shade helps the darker shade to blend out, while the darker color gives a little more oomph to the color overall such that it is easier to see on more complexions.
