MAC Lovecloud Blush

MAC Lovecloud Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright mid-tone pink” with a satin finish. This is almost a yellow-based pink, but it looks blue-based when it is applied heavily. I would err and say it is just barely cool-toned. Tarte Dollface is similar, but it has a softer sheen. Bobbi Brown Nude Pink is similar but has stronger blue undertones and a matte finish. NYX English Rose is a bit lighter and cooler toned. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink is very similar but a little less blue-based and more matte in finish.

MAC Immortal Flower Blush

MAC Immortal Flower Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright peach.” This is an interesting color, because it looks like a soft peach in the pan, but it’s much more coral when swatched and applied to cheeks. It was a bit puzzling, in all honesty! The hue reminded me of Tarina Tarantino Feather, which is a little less pink and has a heavier shimmer. theBalm Frat Boy is more intense, but the color, when used lightly, is very comparable.

MAC Full of Joy Blush

MAC Full of Joy Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “lavender” with a frost finish. It’s a pale, lilac-tinted pink with strong blue undertones and a satiny sheen. I wouldn’t classify it as a frost really–it’s not shimmery enough to be frosted. It has, perhaps, more of a sheen than your average satin finish blush, though. The most comparable shade I could think of was NARS Gaiety, which has a very blue base, but it’s a darker pink–this is much lighter, more spring-like. MAC Azalea Blossom is also darker, a bit purpler, too. Make Up For Ever Smooth Talker is similar in lightness but is pinker with blue undertones but lacks the lilac tint.

MAC for Gareth Pugh: Strada Blush

MAC Strada Blush ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone nude.” It’s a pink-beige on me but looks less pink once applied on the face. MAC Brit Wit is a bit pinker but similar, just in a cream form.  It’s a good shade for contouring if you’re light to medium in skin tone, and it will also work as a cheek color on light to light-medium skin tones. On medium skin tones, you might find you’re really piling it on to get enough of an effect on the cheeks. It has a matte finish, which is yet another reason why it works well for contouring without looking muddy. It wore for about eight hours. The texture is soft enough to be blendable and buildable, but it doesn’t kick up powder or look dry on the skin.

MAC Stunner Blush

MAC Stunner Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described a “light coral pink” with a satin finish. It has more pink than coral–I would describe as a pale, strawberry pink with a hint of peach. It has a champagne-beige sheen, which gives it a less-than-perfectly-pink color. It is pinker than the softer side of MAC Mighty Aphrodite. It is a little lighter than Benefit Bella Bamba.

MAC Equilibrium Blush Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Equilibrium Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bronze” with a satin finish. It’s a soft tan with a hint of orange in the undertone and a pale, golden sheen. It is a touch warmer and less ruddy compared to MAC Pressed Amber, but it is nowhere near as orange or as intense as MAC Springshine. When sheered out, it has some similarity to Guerlain Sublime Radiant Powder.
