MAC Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Hibiscus Kiss Powder Blush Duo ($26.00 for 0.37 oz.) is described as a “cool coral blush and matte neutral bronze duo.”  I’m presently wearing both (bronzer more as a contour, the blush as a blush), and it’s been six hours–the wear still seems just fine, and I’ll be sure to update later today after I’ve wrapped up testing (most MAC powders last between seven and nine hours, usually somewhere in the middle).

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Barbados Girl Lustre Drops ($20.00 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose gold bronzer.” It is a warm-toned, coppery bronze with a frosted shimmer-sheen. Blended out, it will add a coppery warmth to the skin along with flecks of golden copper shimmer and sparkle. Illamasqua Supernatural is slightly warmer/darker but still similar–it is a cream formula, so it is also more similar than a powder product would be. MAC Sun Rush is lighter, more golden, less coppery. See comparison swatches.

MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick Review, Photos, & Swatches

MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte vivid lavender” with a “Retro Matte” finish. It is a medium-dark, pink-purple with a matte finish. MAC Heroine is darker, purpler. MAC Seasoned Plum is darker, less pink. MAC Up the Amp is glossier, so it appears a bit lighter, less intense when the two are swatched side-by-side, but applied, I couldn’t tell the difference aside from the finish. See comparison swatches.
