Today We Live

MAC x Kabuki Magic Today We Live Powder Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes a soft, coral blush paired with a medium, taupe-brown. It’s a decent product, but the taupe-brown could be easier to work with. This is part of the MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics collection in collaboration with Kabuki, which will be available online on January 19th.

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).

Bumpy Ride

NARS Bumpy Ride Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a light golden sheen. It’s a very springy shade, and it’s a less shimmery version of their well-known Orgasm. My guess is this will work well for lighter skin tones and medium complexions who want a hint of color, as it is visible but a more subtle blush on my light-medium skin tone.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was a touch dusty but seemed to sit well on the skin. The finish became more satiny as I blended and buffed the color on my cheeks. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Peach Passion

Estee Lauder Peach Passion Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is light-medium pink with warm undertones and gold shimmer. Applied and blended out on the skin, the finish became more luminous with a soft glow that didn’t look like heavy shimmer and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” feel that gives “fresh” and “radiant” color to the cheeks, while the press release was more specific and stated that it should have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” The blush had a soft, lightly dusty texture that felt drier to the touch but did not look dry or powdery on my skin. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that wore well for even and a half hours on me.

Chanel Lumieres de Kyoto Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm, orange undertones and a gold shimmer strewn through a mostly matte finish.

The formula is supposed to “highlight, enhance and boost radiance for a luminous look” and consists of three shades–a soft, shimmery beige, muted coral-red, and light beige. The consistency was dusty and drier for me, which resulted in product not adhering as well to my arm (which is drier than my face) and looking noticeably powdery. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage that looked better when I patted and buffed it onto my cheeks. It could have been a little more blendable for me, though, as it took some extra work to diffuse the edges when I tried it on my cheeks. The blush lasted for seven and a half hours before fading on me.

Sweet Peach Glow

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette ($42.00 for 0.39 oz.) contains a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. The blush contains more product (almost double) compared to the highlighter and bronzing shade. Everything is housed in a pink-to-orange gradient, metal tin (like the Sweet Peach palette). The palette was good, though the shades themselves may be found within your stash already, and if you have a deeper skin tone, the blush and bronzer might not be visible enough for your liking. The texture of all three shades was firmer and denser but not really stiff–they are in the vein of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes, NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes, etc. They blended out nicely and lasted for eight to nine hours on me. The palette has the same peach scent as all of the other Sweet Peach products.
