MAC Alpine Bronze Mineralize Blush

MAC Alpine Bronze Mineralize Blush ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “mid-tone caramel.” It’s a orange-tan with a pale champagne shimmer-sheen. It has subtle warm undertones, though for something that looks orange at a glance, it’s not incredibly warm-toned. MAC Lush-Light is darker, redder-toned. NARS Luster is a lot more orange and has a stronger gold shimmer and sheen. MAC Center of the Universe is more frosted, slightly more orange. MAC Soft Sand is a bit browner.

MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish ($29.00 for 0.32 oz.) is described as a “coral with golden bronze shimmering nuances.” It’s a coral with subtle pink tones and a champagne-gold shimmer. I think the blush gallery for corals is bursting at the seems, as over the years, brands have caught on that a large lot of us are coral fiends. MAC Born to Love is pinker, less shimmery. Buxom Luvitate is softer, more of a sheen than a shimmer. Tom Ford Lovelust is pinker, less metallic. Chanel Tweed Brun is more orange.
