The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula–generally–has shown that they’re soft, lightly powdery at times (some are worse than others) with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends fairly well and lasts seven to eight hours. There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. Shame On You had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a soft, lightly dusty texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. The color blended our fairly well on the skin and had a soft matte finish that didn’t look powdery applied. On me, this blush lasted for seven and a half hours before fading.

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of peachy shades. 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.” The lightest shade comes the closest to delivering a decent blush that misses them mark on the 24-hour wear time but isn’t so far off the mark from the other claims, but the darker shade is still a disappointment.

Mickey (Shade) is described as a “baked peach.” It’s a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation that built-up to semi-sheer color after three to four layers of product. The texture wasn’t quite as firm as the majority of the darker shades in the blush duos, but it wasn’t easy to work with. The very sheer coverage made it more forgiving on, as it was hard to see it anyway, so any patchiness wasn’t as noticeable at a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Satisfy (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Dim Infusion (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Shy One (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Luster (P, $30.00) is brighter (90% similar). Tarte Fame (LE, $28.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Spring Fling (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Ginger (P, ) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Chanel Caresse (180) (LE, $45.00) is warmer (85% similar). Viseart Coral #1 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). bareMinerals The Summer Fling (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Illamasqua Lover (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Gretel (Light) (P, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Ripe Peach (LE, $32.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mallory (Light) is described as a “porcelain pink.” It’s a light pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (!) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency. This shade was easier to work with and blended out without turning patchy or putting up a fight. It did not show up visibly as a color on me, just a kind of mattified look (slightly powdery/chalky against my complexion), but the pigmentation was enough that it is more the result of my skin tone being a poor match for the color itself vs. lack of pigmentation. The blush lasted for seven hours. NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Nancy (Light) (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Conquest (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Luma (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Physicians Formula Natural (P, $12.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Duchesse (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (P, ) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Tinge (P, $23.00) is darker (80% similar). Kat Von D Poe (Light) (P, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo
Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo

Kat Von D Hansel + Gretel Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of copper and peach. 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.” As you might have guessed from the last three reviews, results were not impressive. The darker shade was sheer and difficult to blend on the skin, while the lighter shade was less firm in the pan and more powdery, so it was easier to blend but was still sheer. Neither shade made it in the realm of 24 hour wear. The two mixed together (just swirled with a brush) is better than either alone, but blending was still a pain and required an excessive amount of layers for it to show up for photos on my skin tone.

Hansel (Shade) is described as a “terracotta.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage and was buildable to semi-opaque after five layers of product (the heavy swatch pictured was five layers). The texture is incredibly firm and packed into the pan, which makes getting product out of the pan difficult. The firmer texture translates into a thinner, harder-to-blend consistency on the skin, not just swatched, and it tended to look splotchy applied. The color lasted for seven and a half hours, which isn’t bad, but it is bad in the light of a 24-hour wear claim. Chanel Jersey (80) (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Milani Coral Beams #2 (P, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Cantaloupe (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Bronze Burst #2 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Passionate (23) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Coppertone (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Stryke (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). NARS Gilda (P, $30.00) is cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $22.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Quarters (P, $8.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, brighter (85% similar). NARS Liberte (-, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented (80% similar). Colour Pop Bonus (DC, $8.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gretel (Light) is described as an “apricot.” It’s a light-medium pop of peach with warm, orange tones and a matte finish. It was sheer, and it was difficult to intensify as the consistency was powdery and on the chalky side. The color blended out a lot better than the darker shade, there just wasn’t much of it that was visible on my skin tone–what you see is eight passes of product and I can almost imagine there’s a pink tone to my cheek area. It lasted for eight hours. Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Prism (P, $23.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Zoeva Shy Beauty (P, $11.80) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Sunny Surprise (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Mickey (Shade) (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Pink Swoon, This Could Be Fun, Let’s Be Friends Blushes

MAC Pink Swoon Blush
MAC Pink Swoon Blush

MAC Pink Swoon Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow baby-pink.” It’s a slightly brightened, medium bubblegum pink with blue undertones and a matte finish. I’m not getting a yellow tone to this at all, and the description for the pan version of this is “soft candy pink,” which seems more on the mark. The texture is soft, smooth, blendable, and just lightly powdery but that seems to be the good type of powdery–the kind where it helps with blending and doesn’t look dry on the skin. It had good color payoff and lasted for eight hours. It seemed a little lighter but more pigmented than the pan version I bought recently, but I do find that MAC’s matte/satin blushes tend to darken depending on the natural oils on the skin, so my arm may be more or less dry at a given moment (I don’t apply moisturizer or anything right before swatching, just natural occurring changes in the skin!). This is part of the permanent range. theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar). Colour Pop Above & Beyond (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Going Native (Blush) (P, ) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Native Blush (-, ) is lighter (95% similar). MAC You've Got Me Feeling (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is more muted (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #210 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar).

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

MAC This Could Be Fun Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft violet-purple.” It’s a bright, orchid purple with cool undertones and a satiny finish. It isn’t too shimmery, but the finish has a soft sheen to it that makes the skin look natural. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft, blendable consistency, but it did take a little extra work to diffuse the edges. On me, the blush wore strongly for eight and a half hours. Surratt Beauty Se Pomponner (P, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Homie (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sephora I'm Shocked (09) (P, $14.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Heavenly (LE, $22.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Pie (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery, brighter (95% similar). MAC Saucy Miss (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Bright Pink (P, $16.00) is brighter (90% similar). Sephora I'm Quite Tipsy (08) (P, $14.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). LORAC Unashamed (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Starscape (LE, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Let’s Be Friends Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “blue hot-pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium fuchsia-pink with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage with a fairly soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. It blended out readily and didn’t take a lot of work to sheer out/diffuse along the edges, but it is a deeper, brighter shade, so if you want to adjust coverage without having to buff it out, try a fan brush for application. The color wore well for eight and a half hours. Sephora I'm Quite Tipsy (08) (P, $14.00) is more muted (90% similar). Colour Pop More, Please (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Full Fuchsia (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Milani Love Potion (07) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Rhubarb (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Rose #3 (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Bred for Beauty (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Basically (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Rendezvous (P, $10.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Sephora Hey Jealousy (17) (P, $14.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Pegacorn (DC, $8.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cool (Winter 2016) Blush (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Clinique Berry Pop (03) (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Coin Purse (LE, $8.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). NARS Starscape (LE, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Narcissist (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Pie (DC, $8.00) is cooler (85% similar). By Terry Tropical Sunset #3 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Coeur Battant (LE, $30.00) is darker, brighter (85% 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.

Beauty Powders “can be applied as a highlight, soft blush, or overall finish,” according to MAC. This originally came out many years ago, and then it was repromoted in March of last year; nothing new to report here, but I’ll confirm that it is the same color as the last version released and feels a little softer, not quite as firmly pressed in the pan. It’s still not quite as dense or as soft as my original powder. It’s blendable, has buildable coverage, and wears for eight hours. The shimmer doesn’t emphasize pores and gives the skin a nice, luminous sheen.

MAC Spring Flock & What I Fancy Blushes

MAC Spring Flock Blush
MAC Spring Flock Blush

MAC Spring Flock Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bright coral.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that applied evenly, smoothly, and blended out easily but did not look powdery on the skin. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC I'll Hold My Breath #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). NARS Make Believe (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).

MAC What I Fancy Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft bright apricot.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a very “strawberry milk” color to it. The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, but it was a little more powdery than other shades in the launch. I don’t think it looked that way applied, and it blended nicely on the skin, though it tended to sheer out a little and was harder to keep at full intensity. This shade lasted well for eight hours. KIKO 109 Candy Rose (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Tinge (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Poe (Light) (P, ) is cooler (95% similar).
