MAC Lovecloud & Modern Mandarin Blushes (2014)

MAC Lovecloud Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright mid-tone pink.” It’s a light-medium, subtly cool-toned pink with a satiny sheen. This is a pink that leans blue, but it doesn’t pull so blue that it is difficult for warmer complexions to wear. The pigmentation was excellent–very true-to-pan color that was easy to achieve without having to pack it on. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth. This shade wore just over seven and a half hours on me before starting to fade. Make Up For Ever #210 (P, $26.00) is warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Blush (P) is darker, more matte. Tarte Flush (P, $26.00) is slightly darker. NARS New Attitude (LE, $29.00) is darker, matte, warmer. Givenchy It-Girl Purple (P, $44.00) is more matte. Tarte Dollface (P, $26.00) is a little more matte. MAC Pure Femininity (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned. theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is more matte. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is lighter.

MAC Full of Joy & Peony Petal Blushes (2014)

MAC Full of Joy Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “lavender.” It’s a cool-toned, light lavender with a hint of pink and a satin finish. It’s a true lavender–this is a blush that doesn’t just turn pink applied to the skin. It had excellent color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was blendable, buildable, and wore for almost eight hours before starting to fade. NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $29.00) is much pinker. NARS Mistinguette (LE, $29.00) is also pinker. NARS Gaiety (P, $29.00) is pinker. MAC Unconventional (LE, $21.00) is slightly p inker. MAC Lazy Sunday (LE, $20.00) is lighter, pinker, cream.
