MAC Spring Flock Blush

MAC Spring Flock Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bright coral.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that applied evenly, smoothly, and blended out easily but did not look powdery on the skin. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC I'll Hold My Breath #2 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar).

MAC What I Fancy Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft bright apricot.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a very “strawberry milk” color to it. The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, but it was a little more powdery than other shades in the launch. I don’t think it looked that way applied, and it blended nicely on the skin, though it tended to sheer out a little and was harder to keep at full intensity. This shade lasted well for eight hours. KIKO 109 Candy Rose (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Poe (Light) (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Modest Blush (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lotus Blossom (LE, $40.00) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Intemporalle (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pink Sprinkles (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Pinch O' Peach (P, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS New Attitude (LE, $30.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC’s Powder Blush formula is supposed to be easy to apply, long-wearing, and have “fantastic colour.” It’s hard to generalize for MAC’s blush formula, because it varies a lot from shade to shade, even within different types of finishes! Some of them are very good, others are so-so, and a few are complete misses. The more frosted/shimmery shades tend to have the softest and smoothest textures and are easier to apply and blend out on the skin, while more satin and matte shades can sometimes be powdery, firm, or stiff, which makes blending more challenging. The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average.
