MAC Equilibrium Blush

MAC Me Over: Equilibrium Blush

MAC Equilibrium Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bronze” with a satin finish. It’s a soft tan with a hint of orange in the undertone and a pale, golden sheen. It is a touch warmer and less ruddy compared to MAC Pressed Amber, but it is nowhere near as orange or as intense as MAC Springshine. When sheered out, it has some similarity to Guerlain Sublime Radiant Powder.

MAC blushes last around eight hours on my skin (normal-to-dry), and Equilibrium has a very soft, smooth texture with good color payoff. It’s pigmented enough to give ample color but not so intense that one has to tip-toe around the blush when using it.

MAC Me Over is a 51-piece collection for fall, which will launch in North America on August 25th, 2011 and internationally in September 2011. It will launch online approximately August 23rd but there is no concrete online launch date. All products–unless otherwise noted–are limited edition.

Equilibrium

A-
It should work well on both warmer and cooler skin tones, though it is more suitable for warmer skin tones because of the golden sheen. It is not too warm, however, which is why I think it should still work on those with pinker undertones.

    This is the only thing I want from the entire collection, lol :P I think it’s because I am a total blush whore hehe!

  2. Lisa

    It’s very pretty with Peachstock. I must say it’ll be a must have for a nudely look. Just enough, but definately make the eyes pop! =]

  3. Carrie Ann

    I really like this one. It seems unique and it looks like it would give a very natural glow. I even like the name. :)

  4. emily

  5. This is so pretty!! I definitely want to try a MAC blush, and this looks like it’d be a good first one for me to get :D

  7. Helen

    Did you get a chance to look at the other blush, stunner?

  10. Sophiej

    Can this work as a contour color if I have fair skin?

  11. rosy

    Can this be used to contour? NC25-NC30

  12. Mmmm I’m loving this blush.

  13. Michelle

    How do you think this blush is compared to gingerly? I’ve thought about giving that a try, I’m a pale pale girl and like a little warmth… I think this looks really pretty but wonder how it compared?

  14. Joli

    I just purchased Trace Gold..how similar do you think they are? I’m debating on returning and waiting on this one :/

  15. Amy

    Hey Christine, I just got an email from MAC about this new collection, so I went on the site to check it out, but I didn’t see the 226 brush. Do you know why that is so?

  16. JoeJoe

    Is this color darker than Trace Gold? Or similar to Goldstone? Thanks for your time!!

  17. Sophia

    do you think it will show up if im around an NC40-NC42?

  18. Joanna

    Christine- how would this blush compare to Buff? Also, would this work as a bronzer?

    My gosh this one looks stunning on you Christine! I just might have to take a look at it :)

  20. Is it just me or does this blush look similar to Harmony? Although I would say Harmony is more brown. This looks more peach on your skin… Am I wrong?

  21. Lynniekae

    Hey Christine!

    How does Equilibrium compare to Format?
