MAC Ripe for Love Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone peach [with a satin finish].” It’s a medium coral-orange with a satiny sheen and warm undertones. Aveda Hibiscus is slightly pinker, less shimmery. MAC Stereo Rose is more frosted, slightly lighter. bareMinerals The Natural High is pinker. Tom Ford Lovelust is less orange, more shimmery. MAC Ripe Peach is very similar but can appear lighter/pinker (depending on where you concentrate your brush).  MAC Marine Life is similar but can turn redder (less orange), depending on how you apply it.

The more you blend the blush out, the more the satiny sheen transforms into a glow. It had a soft, finely-milled texture that applied smoothly and evenly. The texture made it easy to blend on the skin. Ripe for Love had good, buildable color; true-to-pan payoff but easy to sheer out or build up in layers for just the right intensity that you desire at any given moment. When I wore it yesterday, it lasted seven and a half hours well, and it was marginally faded after eight hours–it wasn’t too noticeable under eight and a half hours.
