MAC Unconventional Blush

MAC Unconventional Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “pale shimmering lavender” with a frost finish. It’s a pale pink with a hint of lavender and cool under-tones; there is an almost gray pull to the color that gives it a very cool, muted appearance. For a blush listed as a frost, it is softer, more shimmer-sheen than full of shimmer; more like a mix of frost and satin. MAC Lazy Sunday is warmer, pinker. MAC Full of Joy is a touch more lavender and less frosted–but the two are very similar. Make Up For Ever Smooth Talker is a touch pinker and less shimmery.

MAC Small Vanity Blush

MAC Small Vanity Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “dusty rose tan.” It’s a subdued, reddish brown with a warm champagne sheen. It has a satin finish, but the sheen was a little more compared to the other two blushes in this launch–still subtle, though. MAC Stratus is the bolder, more dramatic sister–I think they will end up looking similar if you wear Stratus very, very sheerly. NARS G-Spot is rosier. MAC Petticoat is kind of similar, more metallic and pinker. MAC Notable is a little darker, less red.

MAC I’m the One Blush

MAC I’m the One Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone blue pink.” Like I’m the One, this shade darkened the minute it touched the skin. It looks lighter in the pan, but swatched (and applied!), it is a lightened, medium pink with strong blue undertones–it almost has a lilac-edge to it, but it’s still very much pink first. It has a satin finish, so there is a very subtle natural sheen that’s most apparent the more blended out it is. NARS Gaiety is incredible similar on–swatched, it appears marginally lighter (and for darker complexions, it is more pigmented). MAC Peony Petal is darker, slightly more magenta but the difference is negligible on.

MAC Easy Manner Blush

MAC Easy Manner Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light dirty peach.” It’s a soft yellow-toned pink–a smidgen coral-pink. It has a satin finish, so there is an ever-so-slight sheen that’s really barely-there and just makes it look natural and not flat on the skin. MAC Legendary is more coral. MAC Rosy Outlook is similar–more matte. Illamasqua Naked is darker, pinker. Tom Ford Frantic Pink is warmer, less pink. Chanel Blush Horizon is less warm. Benefit Hervana is similar. MAC Stunner is similar but has more of a sheen.
