This is one of five new blush shades being added to the permanent range, but worth noting is that they are being added as a Small Powder Blush (the same size as MAC’s eyeshadows). I’m not sure if it will be available in pan-form or not (my guess is yes, since it is permanent) at this time. The formula is the same as their regular Powder Blush range, though, other than the size (and price). The new five are supposed to be pigmented with an even, smooth texture. Bright Pink was richly pigmented and needed very little product to show up as a pop of color on my medium complexion. The powder had a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t dusty or too dense, so it sat well on the skin and was manageable when it came to blending. It wasn’t as forgiving as some of the other mattes that MAC has in their blush range, but it wasn’t frustrating to diffuse and tamp down if over-applied. This shade wore well for just over nine hours on me.
