Kat Von D Mickey + Mallory Shade + Light Blush Duo ($25.00 for 0.317 oz.) is a new, permanent set of peachy shades. The blush formula is supposed to “stay vibrant for a full 24 hours of wear” with “silky powders” that “blend effortlessly into skin for a flawless, buildable finish.” The marketing makes it unclear what level of pigmentation these should be on Sephora, but per the brand’s Instagram, they are “highly pigmented.” The lightest shade comes the closest to delivering a decent blush that misses them mark on the 24-hour wear time but isn’t so far off the mark from the other claims, but the darker shade is still a disappointment.

Mickey (Shade) is described as a “baked peach.” It’s a muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation that built-up to semi-sheer color after three to four layers of product. The texture wasn’t quite as firm as the majority of the darker shades in the blush duos, but it wasn’t easy to work with. The very sheer coverage made it more forgiving on, as it was hard to see it anyway, so any patchiness wasn’t as noticeable at a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Mademoiselle (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is darker (95% similar).

Mallory (Light) is described as a “porcelain pink.” It’s a light pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage (!) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency. This shade was easier to work with and blended out without turning patchy or putting up a fight. It did not show up visibly as a color on me, just a kind of mattified look (slightly powdery/chalky against my complexion), but the pigmentation was enough that it is more the result of my skin tone being a poor match for the color itself vs. lack of pigmentation. The blush lasted for seven hours. Kat Von D Nancy (Light) (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is lighter (95% similar).
