MAC Fleet Fast Blush
MAC Hey, Sailor Collection — Fleet Fast Blush
MAC Fleet Fast Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “pinky golden coral” with a satin finish. It’s a muted red-coral with a golden shimmer-sheen. Tom Ford Flush is more vibrant with less shimmer. MAC Immortal Flower is softer and pinker with more of a sheen than a shimmer. Tarte Glisten is very similar but with a more pronounced sheen. Illamasqua Dixie is much more intense and vibrant. Tarte Blissful is brighter and warmer. Tarina Tarantino Feather is lighter. theBalm Frat Boy is a touch pinker and doesn’t have the shimmer/sheen. MAC Early Morning is looks almost burnt in comparison–a little redder.
Even though this and Launch Away! (the other blush in this collection, which I will review after I finish concluding this post!) look rather different in the pot, they don’t look nearly as different once applied. The major difference is the overall tone, as this shade is warmer and redder, while Launch Away! appears pinker. The texture is soft, finely-milled, and a little stiff/dry; it’s not dry in a bad way so much as it’s just that type of texture. It’s not soft and dense and buttery. Fleet Fast has good color payoff and applies well against the skin and adds coral and gold warmth to cheeks. It blended out nicely when I used the 116 to apply it. I tested out the wear of both blushes yesterday (with some really excellent timing, I managed to test four cheek products, each for eight hours!), Fleet Fast wore for about seven hours before having some minor fading.
