MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush

MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright orange.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a natural sheen. It looks lighter in the pan, but after you swipe the first layer off, it looks a bit darker (truer to the swatch). Make Up For Ever #12 is similar but a little more tangerine. Make Up For Ever #5 is redder and darker.

MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush

MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright coral” on the press release, but between you and me, that’s completely wrong. When it was originally launched in MAC in Lillyland, it was described as a “bright fuchsia,” which is so much more accurate. It is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with strong blue undertones. MAC Overdyed is similar but slightly darker. MAC Amazon Princess is also very similar, perhaps a touch less pink. MAC Her Blooming Cheek has a bit more of a sheen but the color comes close.
