MAC Cheek Pollen Blush
MAC Cheek Pollen Blush

MAC Cheek Pollen Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “warm nude [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a satin shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented with a really soft, smooth, almost buttery consistency that applied well to the skin. It blended out beautifully, while the satin finish gave the skin luminosity without emphasizing pores. On me, it lasted for eight hours.

MAC Spellbinder Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “pastel yellow pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a slightly softened, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff and a soft, smooth texture that blended out easily on the skin. The sheen becomes more pronounced the more it is buffed into the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading. LORAC Dance 'Til Dawn Blush #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Spell Bound (DC, $9.99) is more muted (90% similar).
