Nude Beach Bronzer is a dirty, plummy-brown with subtle warm undertones and a satiny sheen. This shade was sheerer, though still somewhat buildable. I had similar issues with blending, though, where it was difficult to soften or diffuse the edges of the color. It looked somewhat splotchy applied as a result. MAC Stylish Me is warmer, lighter. MAC Earthshine is darker, browner. See comparison swatches.
