MAC Honey Jasmine Blush
MAC Honey Jasmine Blush

MAC Honey Jasmine Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft warm coral [with a satin finish].” It’s a medium orange with subtle warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there satin sheen. Chanel Espiegle is more frosted, less orange. Chanel Frivole is much darker, redder. Illamasqua Rude is redder. MAC Blazing Haute is more orange, lighter. MAC Warmth of Coral is more frosted. MAC Cream Soda is lighter. NARS Gina is slightly browner, a touch darker. See comparison swatches.

When MAC puts out a highly pigmented satin-finish blush, it’s always a reason to celebrate.  Honey Jasmine has buildable, true-to-pan color payoff that can be as intense or as subtle as you’d like.  The texture is soft, finely-milled, and applies smoothly without looking powdery on the skin.  The more you blend and buff the blush into the skin, the more the satin sheen comes through.  It never becomes too much, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture.  Honey Jasmine wore well for seven hours, and I noticed some slight fading along the edges after eight hours of wear.

    So pretty. I love the glow it gives you!

  3. marion

    I wonder how it compare to ripe for love?

  4. Looks beautiful! I don’t think it’ll look that flattering on my cooler skin tone though. =( Pity.

  5. zainab

    It’s lovely, but I always find orange blush such a weird proposition.

    Hi Christine, I love this color on you. How do you compare this one with fresh honey blush? Btw, love your new swatches format on temptalia, is very helpful. Thank you so much.

    Hi Christine! How does it compare to MAC Melba?

  15. I was surprised when I read you hated the Royal Sunset blush on you, but I actually vastly prefer it over this one. This one is too orangey where orange blush just doesn’t translate or make sense to me on cheeks. It co-ordinates beautifully with your lips though. Just not my personal preference :)

    • I don’t dislike Royal Sunset on me – I dislike the gray/pink/orange theme on me. It’s probably one of the most hideous combinations I’ve seen on me in awhile! I’m glad it’s not as hideous to others – but I almost didn’t want to leave the house, I was so self-conscious with it on. This coming from someone who will leave the house with two different eyeshadow combinations on or green lipstick.

      • LoL.. well, I didn’t think I would like the combo at all either, but I actually do. You just made me think of a disastrous moment when I had an SA do a more dramatic eye look on me and I didn’t even want to walk out of the store. I kept my head down and jumped into a taxi and hightailed it home so I could scrub it off. I felt ridiculous so I do know what you mean. Maybe it’s just a case of the photos being absolutely fine, but another thing to see/wear it in person..

  16. Definitely getting this! I have so many orange & peach blushes, but it’s because I love them haha.

    Curious if anyone knows how similar this is to Tarte’s Tipsy? I would think Tipsy looks more orange in pan but might come off similarly.

    I could not buy this fast enough after this review! I’ve been looking for a true creamsicle-orange blush without overwhelming pink or peach or brown tones (or hideous huge chunks of sparkle) for so long. My skin is warm-toned so most traditional and more subdued orange hues that people go for turn boring pinky-peach on my skin, but this looks absolutely perfect. Thanks for the review, Christine!

    Christine, I feel that this may be too light for my NC42 coloring. What do you think?

    Hello, does any of the blushes work on deeper skin tones?

  21. C.rim

    Hi Christine :) Thanks for great review.
    I have a warmth of coral. I want to know how different they are.
    If warmth of coral just more frosted than honey jasmine. I’ll not buy honey jasmine.
    Their difference is just finished by your review. How about your think?
    Are they same color? Please help!

  24. BetsyBasset

    Hi Christine!

    Your reviews are absolutely priceless to me!

    I’m really new when it comes to blush- my cheeks tend to get really pink and blotchy naturally, so I never wore blush. However, when I get a good layer of foundation/concealer/etc on I am definitely missing something- blush!

    Anyways, I am a mac NW20 (25 in the summer) I was wondering which of the three All About Orange blushes you would recommend for my skin tone.
    I love trying everything, but I don’t have any sense of which colors look good on which skin tones.

    Thanks!

  28. Thank you so much Christine!
    I was thinking whether to buy or not to buy this as I already have Nars Gina but your comparison swatches are amazing! this blush is so pretty and soft, it looks great on you ^_^

    christine, how would you compare this with MAC MANDARIN SATIN BLUSH? ANYONE FORGOT THAT BLUSH IN YOUR COLLECTION?

  30. Ella Martyn

    I’m very with very pink undertones and I CRAVE orange blushes and lipsticks, but they look ridiculous on me. But true to form I’m ignoring the rules of undertone and making it work. When I somewhat blank out my pink undertones I use the (sparingly) with a contoured cheek and a fabulous highlight (Lust MSF) and I LOVE it. And I pair it with clinique’s heftiest hibiscus and my orange craving is somewhat satisfied. Orange WILL work for me.
