Surratt Beauty Guimauve Artistique Blush

Surratt Beauty Guimauve Artistique Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light, subtly cool-toned pink with a satin finish. On me, it looks almost warm-toned, because the natural yellowness of my complexion come through, but if you have naturally cooler-toned skin, it will appear more true-to-pan applied. Dior My Lady (002) (LE, $60.00) is darker. Dior Rose (001) (LE, $56.00) is slightly darker, warmer. Urban Decay Blush (P) is brighter, darker. NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $29.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Chanel Inspiration (64) (P, $38.00) is warmer, cream. MAC Stay Pretty (P, $23.50) is darker. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is a touch brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Corol Blush Duo

MAC Corol Blush Duo ($33.00 for TBA oz.) is consists of two blushes, with them being split unevenly–the lighter shade covers about two-thirds, while the plum shade is about a third of the compact. It is larger than MAC’s normal blush compact–more like their Beauty Powders. It is packaged in a rubberized black with gold trimmings. What you really need to know is that the texture is incredibly stiff and stubborn to work with: all swatches required use of a metal spatula to scrape off layers of powder. Once layers were dislodged, I was able to jab at them with a brush to loosen and apply, but the powder in the compact felt almost like plastic to the touch. After it was loosened and crushed into a fine powder, the actual texture from there was softer and fairly blendable–but getting to that point required extreme measures. It took a fair amount of product to get “decent” color payoff, even after scraping away at it. It did not improve with use, unfortunately, and I’m pretty sure I caught it laughing evilly at me. I don’t know if I’ve encountered quite as stiff of a powder as this that wasn’t really plastic–I am totally flabbergasted that this made it out of production.
