Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush
Make Up For Ever #215 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “flamingo pink.” It’s a light-medium, soft pink-coral with a satin finish and warm undertones. Milani Coral Cove (05) (LE, $7.99) is darker, powder. Sleek MakeUP Newport Peach (P) is very similar. Hourglass Luminous Flush (P, $35.00) is pinker, powder. Hourglass Diffused Heat (P, $35.00) is powder. Physicians Formula Warm (P, $11.99) is more shimmery, powder. MAC Something Special (P, $21.00) is less pink. MAC Keep It Loose (LE, $20.00) is lighter.

If you prefer your coral to lean a little pink (rather than orange) and are in the mood for something easily described as light, fresh, and springy, #215 is one to consider. The formula on this shade is consistent with the other shades I’ve tested: lightly creamy, non-sticky, nicely pigmented, and turns to a more powdery feel as it is blended and worked into the skin. Even though it takes on a more powder-like feel and look, it retains the blendability of a cream and has a beautiful satiny finish that doesn’t have a lot of sheen but doesn’t look flat. This shade lasted almost eight hours on me before fading.
