MAC Ripe Peach Blush Ombre

MAC Ripe Peach Blush Ombre ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “light coral.” It’s a peachy-orange with subtle reddish tones and a golden shimmer. In the pan, there’s definitely a more coral-pink coloring, but it didn’t seem to translate as much applied to the skin (even when I concentrated my brush there). Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE) is more shimmery. YSL Rebelle (7) (P, $47.00) is more orange. MAC Love & Laughter (LE, $21.00) is pinker. Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $9.99) is slightly pinker, lighter. Tarte Darling (LE, $26.00) is darker. NARS Soulshine #2 (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker. NARS Gina (P, $29.00) is darker. MAC Barefaced (LE, $21.00) is darker, browner. MAC Warmth of Coral (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

LORAC Unzipped Cheek Palette & Alter Ego Set

LORAC Unzipped Cheek Palette & Alter Ego Set ($30.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes a palette of four blushes (each is 0.105 oz.) and a full-sized lipstick (0.12 oz.). The blushes had good color payoff with soft, silky consistencies–the mattes could be a little dusty to work with but didn’t look powdery on the skin–and lasted between eight and nine hours on me. They layer and mix well with each other, so you can adjust the warmth/coolness of your look as well as the shimmer level. This is a limited edition, ULTA exclusive for spring (I don’t have an exact release date yet).

Sephora + Pantone Universe Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio

Sephora + Pantone Universe Shimmering Marsala Cheek Trio ($28.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a limited edition set of two blushes and a highlighter. This year’s trio is definitely worth considering from the Color of the Year collection, as much like last year, it’s pretty good overall (could wear a little longer) with good color payoff, soft, blendable textures, and has good value. It’s a warm-toned set of shades, so if you prefer cooler-tones, you might check out some of the dupes listed.
