MAC Small Vanity Blush
MAC Small Vanity Blush

Allow Me This Small Vanity

MAC Small Vanity Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “dusty rose tan.” It’s a subdued, reddish brown with a warm champagne sheen. It has a satin finish, but the sheen was a little more compared to the other two blushes in this launch–still subtle, though. MAC Stratus is the bolder, more dramatic sister–I think they will end up looking similar if you wear Stratus very, very sheerly. NARS G-Spot is rosier. MAC Petticoat is kind of similar, more metallic and pinker. MAC Notable is a little darker, less red.

Of all three blushes, Small Vanity had the most color payoff–it was good–and was softer than the other two, as well.  When applied, it was easy to blend out the edges and get enough color without having to go back for more multiple times.   I used MAC’s 116 brush to dab this over cheeks, and it wore for eight hours with minor fading around the edges.

A-
This is an every day kind of blush with a kick--there's just enough color to make an impact but it is tempered by the brown-ish undertones.
