MAC Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo ($26.00 for 0.37 oz.) is described as a “cool coral blush and matte neutral bronze duo.”  I’m presently wearing both (bronzer more as a contour, the blush as a blush), and it’s been six hours–the wear still seems just fine, and I’ll be sure to update later today after I’ve wrapped up testing (most MAC powders last between seven and nine hours, usually somewhere in the middle).

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops ($20.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose gold bronzer.” It is a warm-toned, coppery bronze with a frosted shimmer-sheen. Blended out, it will add a coppery warmth to the skin along with flecks of golden copper shimmer and sparkle. Illamasqua Supernatural is slightly warmer/darker but still similar–it is a cream formula, so it is also more similar than a powder product would be. MAC Sun Rush is lighter, more golden, less coppery. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo

Bobbi Brown Nude Beach Face & Body Bronzing Duo ($42.00 for 0.60 oz.) consists of a bronzer and blush that can be used individually or blended together.  It’s not your typical bronzer, because it’s not an orange/tan-based one, and those who tend to prefer slightly reddish tones to their blush/bronzer in the summer may like the shades included in this duo.  I wasn’t keen on the texture and blendability of the bronzer, unfortunately, as it was difficult to get it to look even and smooth on the skin.  Both shades wore well for seven and a half hours, and after eight hours, I noticed some slight fading along the edges.
