MAC Brash & Bold Pigment

MAC Brash & Bold Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “bright magenta.” It’s a rich, vibrant fuchsia-shimmered pink-red. MAC Passionate is matte and pinker. MAC Tease with Ease is pinker, less red, and not as vibrant. MAC Bright Fuchsia is darker, less red-toned. Brash & Bold is a repromote, so you might want to check your stash to see if you already own it.

MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder

MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder ($24.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “pale peach with gold pearl.” It’s a soft pink-tinged peach with a golden shimmer-sheen. MAC Legendary is darker, pinker. MAC Born to Love is quite a bit darker, less peach. Guerlain Peach Boy is a touch darker and more shimmery. Benefit Sugarbomb is pinker, but I would say this is the closest when applied.
