MAC Amber Glow Mineralize Blush ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “warm peach.” It is a soft peach with a hint of pink–almost apricot-like–with a pale champagne shimmer. NARS Sex Appeal is a touch pinker, and it doesn’t have any shimmer. MAC By Candlelight is warmer, rosier, and very metallic in comparison.

MAC Alpine Bronze Mineralize Blush

MAC Alpine Bronze Mineralize Blush ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “mid-tone caramel.” It’s a orange-tan with a pale champagne shimmer-sheen. It has subtle warm undertones, though for something that looks orange at a glance, it’s not incredibly warm-toned. MAC Lush-Light is darker, redder-toned. NARS Luster is a lot more orange and has a stronger gold shimmer and sheen. MAC Center of the Universe is more frosted, slightly more orange. MAC Soft Sand is a bit browner.

MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish

MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish ($29.00 for 0.32 oz.) is described as a “coral with golden bronze shimmering nuances.” It’s a coral with subtle pink tones and a champagne-gold shimmer. I think the blush gallery for corals is bursting at the seems, as over the years, brands have caught on that a large lot of us are coral fiends. MAC Born to Love is pinker, less shimmery. Buxom Luvitate is softer, more of a sheen than a shimmer. Tom Ford Lovelust is pinker, less metallic. Chanel Tweed Brun is more orange.

MAC Strength: Inner Strength Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Inner Strength Eyeshadow Quad ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of three new shades and one repromote: Lithe Spirit (palest white pink), Inner Strength (light cool mauve taupe), Fabulous Fit (mid-tone cool grey), and Heatherbelles (deep charcoal).  This is a rather cool-toned quad, more so than All Woman, with the only warmth coming from Inner Strength, which isn’t all that warm, so if you like cooler tones, you’ll be in luck with this color composition!
