MAC x Ellie Goulding I’ll Hold My Breath Blush Duo

MAC I'll Hold My Breath Blush Duo
MAC I’ll Hold My Breath Blush Duo

MAC I’ll Hold My Breath Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a brown and pink, with the brown taking up about two-thirds of the space in the pan. Not bad, not out of this world. I wish they would have just kept it as true duo–half of each–as I think it would be more versatile that way. They are more dupable, particularly the coral (even within MAC’s range). It is a larger compact, and it’s nice to see that they put together special packaging for the collection.

I’ll Hold My Breath #1 is described as a “medium warm bronze.” It’s a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a dusting of gold shimmer. The texture was really smooth, but there was a firmness to it that made it a little harder to get the product to transfer onto a brush, even though it didn’t feel hard/stiff to the touch. It had semi-opaque pigmentation at best, but it was blendable on the skin and applied evenly overall. On me, the color lasted for eight hours before fading. Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Ganymede (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I’ll Hold My Breath #2 is described as a “peachy pink pearl.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had decent pigmentation with a smooth consistency that was a little dry, but it applied without issue and blended out nicely. The color started to fade after eight hours on me. MAC Spring Flock (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Concept (LE, $28.00) is warmer (95% similar).

NYX Deep Plum HD Blush

NYX Deep Plum HD Blush ($6.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with warm undertones and a satin finish. NARS Lovejoy (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NYX Bronzed (P, $6.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Scene to Be Seen (Inner) (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Stylish Me (LE, $23.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala (LE, ) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Lancome Rosegold Lights (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted (80% similar). Clinique Fig Pop (P, $21.00) is brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s an interesting shade, as it takes on a more plum-like colorinmg when applied heavily, but as it is blended and sheered out, the warmer, coppery tones come through. The finish also becomes more luminous the more the powder is buffed into the skin, but it is never too much so it doesn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. It was nicely pigmented with a lightly dusty consistency, but it was very soft and easily blended on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours.

NYX Electro HD Blush

NYX Electro HD Blush ($6.00 for 0.16 oz.) is bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. NARS Desire (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Heavenly (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Pegacorn (DC, $8.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Vivid (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Florida (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop More, Please (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Savage (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora I'm Shocked (09) (P, $14.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Pie (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Se Pomponner (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s so nice when you find a budget-friendly product that really performs well! That is the case with Electro. It was richly pigmented paired with a soft, smooth consistency that was easily blended out along the edges for a diffused application. If you prefer subtler blush, I’d recommend using a fan brush or duo-fiber brush, which will allow you to apply less product, and a lighter hand, as a little does go a long way. On me, the blush wore well for eight hours before fading along the edges.

This was one of the more shimmery shades in the HD Blush round-up that I’ve tried so far. It’s definitely not frosted, though, and it has a very luminous sheen on the skin as the shimmer is fine. The blush was richly pigmented with a soft, silky texture that applied well to the skin and blended out with ease. It was just a smidgen powdery, but it was so much better than a lot of the other shades in the range! When I tested it, the color stayed on well for eight hours before fading.

It had good pigmentation, and finally, a shade that wasn’t terribly powdery. The consistency was still soft, smooth, and fairly blendable (but it takes some patience and a light touch to get even application). Crimson is quite pigmented with a soft shimmer to it that becomes more pronounced as you buff it into the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Rose Gold is an intense, medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It was richly pigmented with a really soft, buttery consistency that was easy to apply and use. Definitely a standout shade in the palette (of course, getting a copper eyeshadow right is seemingly effortless for most brands). It wore well for eight hours.
