Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush

Burberry Coral Pink Light Glow Natural Blush ($42.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a subtly warmed-up dark pink with a hint of coral. It has a soft, satiny finish with a barely-there sheen. MAC Whole Lotta Love is lighter. MAC Supernova is more shimmery, less warm-toned. MAC Mocha is slightly more subdued. NARS Amour is more coral.  Worth noting:  I couldn’t see much of a difference between Coral Pink and Hydrangea Pink (the other shade released in the collection) once applied and blended out. I bought both to review, but I don’t think both are necessary if you intend to wear them sheered out–I do think the nuances will be better seen on cooler skin tones, though.

MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder (Archie’s Girls)

MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “golden peach base with coral hearts.” The base color is a warm peach with a soft, frosted finish (and it is reminiscent of Cream Soda in some ways). The hearts are a medium pink-coral with a subtle golden sheen. When everything is mixed together, the resulting shade is a soft, pinky-coral with a light golden sheen. It’s slightly warm-toned. MAC Legendary is just a touch pinker. MAC Immortal Flower is much, much pinker. Tarina Tarantino Feather is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Blush G is pinker and has a stronger sheen. MAC Shell Pearl is similar but a touch more muted.

MAC Cream Soda Blush (Archie’s Girls)

MAC Cream Soda Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light neutral coral” with a satin finish. It’s a light-medium peach with orange and very slight pink tones. The finish looks mostly matte initially, but the more you blend and buff it out, the more the subtle satin sheen comes through. MAC My Highland Honey is much, much more orange. MAC Melba is darker–it’s like the richer, more intense sister. Chanel Espiegle is similar, though a touch more orange and less peach. NARS Gina is darker and more orange. I suspect MAC Peaches is a bit more beige.
