MAC Pink Swoon, This Could Be Fun, Let’s Be Friends Blushes

MAC Pink Swoon Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow baby-pink.” It’s a slightly brightened, medium bubblegum pink with blue undertones and a matte finish. I’m not getting a yellow tone to this at all, and the description for the pan version of this is “soft candy pink,” which seems more on the mark. The texture is soft, smooth, blendable, and just lightly powdery but that seems to be the good type of powdery–the kind where it helps with blending and doesn’t look dry on the skin. It had good color payoff and lasted for eight hours. It seemed a little lighter but more pigmented than the pan version I bought recently, but I do find that MAC’s matte/satin blushes tend to darken depending on the natural oils on the skin, so my arm may be more or less dry at a given moment (I don’t apply moisturizer or anything right before swatching, just natural occurring changes in the skin!). This is part of the permanent range. Colour Pop Mochi (P, $8.00) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Blush (P) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar).

MAC Flamingo Park Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Look Who’s Here Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “soft pink with blue pearl.” It’s a light, pastel pink with subtle, warm undertones and lighter bluish-lavender sparkle. The lighter, creamier color resulted in a milky quality that–as you might expect–settles into lip lines. While the Cremesheen Glass formula is comfortable to wear and moisturizing, it often exaggerates lip lines when worn on its own. The gloss wore for two hours. MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).
