MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo

MAC Refresh Mineralize Skinfinish Duo ($33.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains two shades, which are most easily considered a bronzer and highlighter. This set of shades was less powdery than Jolly Good, but it was still slightly powdery and didn’t wear quite as long as the average cheek colors do.

MAC Jolly Good Mineralize Skinfinish Duo

MAC Jolly Good Mineralize Skinfinish Duo ($33.00 for 0.32 oz.) contains two shades, with one portion being a very larger, more bronzer-like shade and one being smaller and more highlighter-like. The major downside to this product was really the powderiness; the texture seemed silky and finely-milled, but I had great difficulty getting the powder to adhere to the skin. As I applied it, the powder would just sweep right back off the skin and into the air. The bronzer component was less problematic compared to the highlighter, which had a slightly chunkier texture. On the skin swatch, I could blow lightly on the skin, and over half of the powder would disappear.

MAC Cheeky Bugger

MAC Cheeky Bugger Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “peach brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish–it kind of reminded me of strawberry milk (and I mean that in a good way, truly). Chanel Sakura (87) (LE, $43.00) is lighter, more matte. Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is warmer. NARS Love (LE, $29.00) is darker. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is lighter. Physicians Formula Natural (P, $11.99) is more shimmery, darker. NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is less warm-toned, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
