MAC Life’s a Picnic & Oh My! Blushes

MAC Life's a Picnic Blush
MAC Life’s a Picnic Blush

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. Makeup Geek Love Affair (P, $9.99) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Oh My! (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Peep Show (LE, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $8.49) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Vibration (270) (P, $45.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Tea Rose (08) (P, $8.99) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $28.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Oh My! Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “reddish mid-tone coral.” It’s a bright, medium coral-red with warm undertones and slight hints of pink paired with a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation (and buildable for sure) with a fairly soft and blendable texture. It wasn’t quite as easily blended and diffused as Life’s a Picnic, and when blended down, they both look very similar on me but those with cooler undertones will likely see more warmth out of Oh My!. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading was apparent. MAC Frankly Scarlet (P, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). NYX Crimson (P, $6.50) is warmer (90% similar). theBalm Toile (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Never Say Never (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Life's a Picnic (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Poppy Passion (P, $34.00) is more muted (90% similar). NYX Tuscan (P, $6.50) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Fruit Stand (DC, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Quiver (P, $26.00) is cooler (85% similar). Chanel Rouge Profond (320) (P, $45.00) is more muted, more pigmented (85% similar). Smashbox Geranium (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Flirt It Up (06) (P, $14.00) is lighter (80% similar). Chanel Intonation (69) (DC, $38.00) is lighter, glossier (80% similar). Guerlain Coral Blush (LE) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC’s Powder Blush formula is supposed to be easy to apply, long-wearing, and have “fantastic colour.” It’s hard to generalize for MAC’s blush formula, because it varies a lot from shade to shade, even within different types of finishes! Some of them are very good, others are so-so, and a few are complete misses. The more frosted/shimmery shades tend to have the softest and smoothest textures and are easier to apply and blend out on the skin, while more satin and matte shades can sometimes be powdery, firm, or stiff, which makes blending more challenging. The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average.

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Morticia + Gomez Shade + Light Blush Duo
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.

Morticia (Shade) is described as a “rich fig.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark pink-plum with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was sheer with a dry, chalky consistency; it’s like the powder comes off of the surface but clumps together without adhering to the skin well, which resulted in a very patchy, uneven application. It’s very subtle on me after three passes of product applied to the skin. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC Fever (P, $22.00) is more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). MAC Hot Nights (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Neolita (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Rendezvous (P, $10.00) is cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #510 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Cheerio (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Berry (LE, $26.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Becca Nightingale (P, $32.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Plum (LE) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Goulue (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gomez (Light) is described as a “orchid petal.” It’s a muted, light pink with cool, lavender tones and a matte finish. It was semi-sheer and buildable to semi-opaque coverage after three to four layers. The texture was softer and smoother, which made it easier to work with. It was moderately blendable and didn’t look powdery on the skin, though it sheers out. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. When mixed with the darker shade, it at least makes it somewhat usable. Kat Von D Clyde (Light) (P) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Promise Ring (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Threesome (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $74.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Mistinguette (LE, $30.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Piaf + Poe Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Piaf + Poe Shade + Light Blush Duo
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.

From previous review(s): The packaging had issues (across all seven): 1) two of seven compacts had pans that fell out of the plastic compact; 2) the remaining five had loose pans that wobbled and moved (some more than others) within the compact; and 3) all seven were covered in blush residue (not sure why, nothing was broken).

Piaf (Shade) is described as a “chestnut rose.” It’s a soft, medium coral-rose with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage, which was buildable to semi-sheer after three layers. The texture was moderately dry and a little chalky, as the powder came off the surface but felt firm, and the loose powder seemed to clump together in a way. It could have been easier to work with and blend, and it was hard to eliminate all patchiness both times I applied (once for photos, once to wear). It started to fade noticeably after seven and a half hours. Estee Lauder Lover's Blush (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Day Dream (LE, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Becca Wisteria (LE, $32.00) is darker, more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). NARS Blasphemy (LE, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate Matte (LE, $22.00) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC I'll Hold My Breath #2 (LE) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Love (LE, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Bashful (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Stardust (LE) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Chanel Angelique (190) (P, $45.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). NYX Amber (P, $6.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Streak Blush (-) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Too Faced How Deep is Your Love? (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). MAC Sideshow You (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Poe (Light) is described as a “soft peach.” It’s a light, pastel pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation that was buildable to semi-sheer. It was softer in the pan with less chalkiness (it is interesting how the lighter shades are easier to use, while the darker shades have a drier, chalkier feel) that made it easier to apply to the skin. I had only a little trouble getting this one to blend out, though it is one of the harder-to-apply blushes I’ve tried in this color family. The color started to disappear after seven and a half hours. MAC What I Fancy (LE, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). KIKO 109 Candy Rose (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Zoeva Gentle Touch (P, $11.80) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Launch Away (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lotus Blossom (LE, $40.00) is brighter (90% similar). NARS Myth (LE, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Dior Intemporalle (LE, $65.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Bonnie + Clyde Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) features a cool-toned set of shades in a very light pink and a darker pink. 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 texture of both shades left something to be desired as they were thin, chalky, and difficult to blend. The pigmentation is sheer and only buildable to semi-sheer after three to six layers of product. The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” These are some of the worst powders I’ve have ever tested from Kat Von D, and it’s a real disappointment–and a surprise–after the success of the Shade + Light palettes as well as her recent eyeshadows. Both shades lasted no longer than seven hours; not even in the realm of “full 24 hours of wear.”

Oh, and if being a spectacular miss of a product wasn’t enough frustration, the packaging had issues (across all seven): 1) two of seven compacts had pans that fell out of the plastic compact; 2) the remaining five had loose pans that wobbled and moved (some more than others) within the compact; and 3) all seven were covered in blush residue (not sure why, nothing was broken).

Bonnie (Shade) is described as an “ultra violet.” It’s a soft, medium-dark raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was thin, chalky, and difficult to blend out on the skin as the consistency of the blush would stick in one place but not the other (and wouldn’t want to budge). Trying to build it up at all was extremely difficult; I was almost scraping the product off of the top in order to get enough color to show up on my skin tone. Please note, I am wearing FIVE layers of this product to get it to show up on my face. It was faded and even patchier in appearance after seven hours of wear. MAC Pink Tea (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Pink Explosion (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Skyline (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Stila Pink Rose Blush (LE) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). NYX Bourgeois Pig (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Hysterical (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Hanky Panky (P, $9.99) is brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Naked on the Run Blush (-) is brighter (85% similar). Sephora Love Sick (22) (P, $14.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Clyde (Light) is described as a “lilac.” It’s a light lavender with pink tones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a thin, powdery consistency that wasn’t quite as dry or as chalky as the darker shade (this is true of most of the duos). It was easier to blend as well, though it wasn’t foolproof. The matte finish and light color seems to make it the kind of blush that does darken slightly on the skin compared to how light it appears in the pan. It was noticeably faded after seven hours. Kat Von D Gomez (Light) (P) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Threesome (LE, $30.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Promise Ring (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $74.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Cheek Studio I (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Stila Light Pink (LE) is darker (85% similar).

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Blush Palette ($45.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes six shades of blushes from a pop of pink to a matte bronze. The Afterglow formula is supposed to last for eight hours, sheer coverage. The funny thing about the Afterglow formula is that I don’t really think it’s sheer; it’s more of a medium, buildable coverage formula, which I imagine is something that a lot of people like about it, but just keep in mind that that is how pigmentation is judged from: sheer coverage. The products performed well overall with the only “flaw” being that pigmentation tended to be semi-opaque to opaque rather than sheer. The palette contains $61.04 worth of Afterglow blush.

Cherry is described as a “light pink satin.” It’s a light, cool-toned pink with a soft, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage with a blendable consistency that was a smidgen powdery to work with. It seems to darken slightly applied compared to how it appears in the pan. This shade wore for seven hours on me. Burberry London With Love (LE, $68.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC First Waves (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Prism (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pink Buttercream (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Better Together (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Unconventional (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). NYX Baby Doll (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Bloom (LE, $80.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Easy is described as a “deep rose with gold shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with cooler undertones paired with warm, gold frost. It had semi-opaque color payoff (it’s not what I’d call sheer!) that blended out nicely on the skin without emphasizing pores. This shade wore well for eight hours. Tarte Embraced (LE, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). CoverGirl Deep Mauve (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Clinique Heather Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Chroma (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Radiant in Rose (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Wrapped Candy (P, $27.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). MAC Justine Skye (LE, $26.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Plum Foolery (P, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). NARS Outlaw (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). theBalm Pinstripe (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Sweet Samba (LE, $27.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Ferocious (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). IT Cosmetics Magical in Mauve (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Angel is described as a “champagne-nude shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, golden champagne with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation–not sheer–with a smooth, blendable texture that didn’t emphasize pores when applied. On my skin tone, this is a highlighter and not a blush, for reference, but on very fair skin tones, it may act as a highlighting blush (and add warmth without adding orange tones). It wore well for eight hours before fading. Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Coup de Genie (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Midnight Sun (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Noctum (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Oh, Darling! (P, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lo-Fi is described as a “soft bronze matte.” It’s a soft, medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, and the texture of this one was firmer and thinner–a little dusty in a way–and didn’t blend out as well on the skin as the Afterglow formula typically does. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me. KIKO 100 Cookie (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Skinny Dip (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Contour (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Zoeva ND020 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Bronze #1 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Sensual (P, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #5 (LE) is darker (85% similar). Benefit Hoola (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is darker (85% similar). Illamasqua Disobey (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer (LE, $27.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hush is described as a “medium pink with gold shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, smooth, and slightly powdery texture as the powder was so soft that it kind of crumbled at the touch of a brush. It tended to sheer out a lot applied, so sustained coverage was difficult unless applied over damp foundation or with a slightly dampened brush. On me, the color lasted for eight hours. Le Metier de Beaute Whisper (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Benefit CORALista (Palette) (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Indiscretion (P, $44.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pearl Sunshine (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Starlight (P, $44.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala (LE, $25.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Becca Fig/Opal (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). By Terry Tropical Sunset #5 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (LE) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Becca Rose Gold (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Smashbox Shimmer (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Parasol (LE, $8.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

OC is described as a “soft pink with peach shift.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a pink duochrome shift paired with a satiny sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was buildable to medium coverage. This one will be interesting to see how readers enjoy it, as it looks like a green-leaning yellow straight on, but when it catches the light, you get the pink shift, which is lovely, but it doesn’t always look that way. It lasted for eight hours on me. It reminded me a lot of a long-ago MAC Blush, Spaced Out, which was so long ago that I don’t have a regular swatch of it. Anastasia Hard Candy (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Mai Tai (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Highly Waisted (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Motif (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

There’s not much to the description of this product, other than it is intended to “brighten” with a mix of “pink, beige, and coral” and has a “smooth, satin finish.” The powder is incredibly soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery. It had good pigmentation that can easily be applied at medium coverage or full coverage depending on how much product you pick up with your brush (it’s not so intense that the barest touch of the brush yields opaque coverage). There are five distinct colors in the palette: orange, pink, fuchsia, peach, and coral, and oddly, the parts didn’t swatch nearly as nice as the whole, though it may have been the pattern wearing down that helped. If you keep your brush more towards the top half, you’ll get a warmer coral with more orange, while the lower half yields a pinker coral. The blush wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
