MAC Immortal Flower Blush
MAC Immortal Flower Blush

MAC Immortal Flower Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright peach [with a Satin finish].” It’s a soft, pink-coral with a subtle, satin sheen. Tom Ford Frantic Pink is more shimmery, pinker. Guerlain Blush G is more shimmery. MAC Supercontinental is darker, pinker. MAC Legendary is pinker. MAC Flaming Chic is darker and pinker. MAC Shell Pearl is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani Coral Bliss is more orange. See comparison swatches.

Immortal Flower had nice, buildable color that seemed to apply pinker on the skin than it looked in the pan (where it looked mostly peach/orange). The texture is soft, almost powdery but not quite, and feels finely-milled and goes on smoothly. It does have a tendency to sheer out, so medium and darker complexions will need to build in layers and be careful not to over-blend. It looks mostly matte on the skin, but as the powder is buffed into the skin, the glowy sheen starts to come through. I’ll be testing this blush for wear today, but I generally get between seven and eight hours of wear with MAC’s satin finish blushes.

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.

It has a satin finish, officially, but it’s almost matte. There is certainly a soft sheen to it, but it is incredibly subtle. In certain lighting, you may even think it is a matte finish! This pigmentation in Immortal Flower was not as buildable as it was in Full of Joy. There’s an underlying sheerness to it no matter how much product I applied. I would say the coverage is medium at its most intense, rather than full. MAC seemed to be aiming for a blush that was sheer and buildable, though not necessarily fully opaque.

The texture is soft, just powdery enough to allow for enough product to be picked up by the brush without having to scrape at the pan. I love how it is soft without being powdery yet still blends very easily on the skin. I suspect this is going to be one of the more popular shades out of the six from Tres Cheek, just because it has that subtle coral tint that makes it warm and wearable and perfect for summer. It was impossible to overdo on my skin tone, but it gave a nice, summery glow and flush.

I’ve tested numerous MAC blushes in the past, and overall, they hold up between seven and eight hours. Out of this particular launch, I have only specifically tested Full of Joy (which stayed true to the average) but hope to try a couple more shades. If there are any discrepancies, I’ll be sure to update the review to reflect that.
