MAC Barefaced Blush

MAC Barefaced Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone warm nude [with a satin finish].” It’s a medium, slightly subdued, warm brown with hints of orange/tan and a satiny sheen. NARS Silvana is warmer, lighter, yellower in tone. NARS Madly is very similar–a smidgen browner, at most. Burberry Earthy is more matte and browner. MAC Poised is rosier but if you have pink undertones, it may appear similarly on. MAC Equilibrium is browner.

MAC Cream Soda Blush (Archie’s Girls)

MAC Cream Soda Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light neutral coral” with a satin finish. It’s a light-medium peach with orange and very slight pink tones. The finish looks mostly matte initially, but the more you blend and buff it out, the more the subtle satin sheen comes through. MAC My Highland Honey is much, much more orange. MAC Melba is darker–it’s like the richer, more intense sister. Chanel Espiegle is similar, though a touch more orange and less peach. NARS Gina is darker and more orange. I suspect MAC Peaches is a bit more beige.
