MAC Easy Manner Blush
It’s a Manner of Everyday Ease with This 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.
Easy Manner is one of those shades that seems to darken when applied. It does the same on my arm as it does on my face; on my cheeks, it looks a little less pink, but it’s definitely darker than the color in the pan. It’s a very easy-to-wear color for light to medium-dark skin tones. On darker complexions, I think it might get lost, but it is definitely buildable and still yielded a lot of color on my medium skin tone without having to pack it on, so it may be worth a look. It doesn’t have a chalky base color, so it shouldn’t turn ashy. The texture is a bit dry and stiff, but I didn’t have trouble blending out the color when I applied it (I used MAC’s 116). This shade wore for eight hours with minor fading along the tops of my cheek bones.
