ColourPop Between the Sheets Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Between the Sheets Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone beige pink in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, pink-coral-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It’s lighter and pinker than a peach-brown, but it’s so muted, that it doesn’t read coral either. Tarte Fame (LE, $26.00) is brighter, warmer, powder. Colour Pop Quarters (P, $8.00) is darker. Chanel Jersey (80) (P, $45.00) is browner, powder. Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, powder. Illamasqua Flirtatious (LE, $26.00) is similar. Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is pinker, lighter. bareMinerals Swoon (LE, $19.00) is powder. MAC Melba (P, $21.00) is powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Wash & Dry Crisp Whites and Hipness Blush

MAC Crisp Whites Blush ($24.50 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “pale tangerine with pearl.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, satiny sheen. It had a fairly soft, smooth texture that was blendable on the skin, while the finish appears pearly at times, once on the skin, it seemed more semi-matte to satin-like, but it wasn’t noticeably shimmery. The color seemed to darken slightly when applied to bare skin (unless you’re very dry, it can happen with some blushes due to the natural oils on the skin) and shows subtly on my medium complexioni, but it is likely a color better suited to lighter skin tones unless you’re going for subtle. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Freshen Up (LE, $35.50) is darker, brighter (and potential to be redder). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is darker. Urban Decay Indecent (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, cooler-toned. MAC Style Cast (LE, $21.00) is slightly more shimmery. Makeup Geek Smitten (P, $9.99) is darker, more matte. Dior Amber (002) (LE, $56.00) is yellower. NARS Luster (P, $30.00) is darker, more shimmery. MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $25.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
