MAC Coppertone Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Coppertone Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “peach brown [with a matte finish].” It’s a medium, muted orange with brown undertones and a matte finish. I get the “peach brown” description, though. NARS Gina is a touch lighter. MAC Seasonal Appeal is less warm. MAC Eternal Sun is a bit darker. MAC Barefaced is more shimmery. Chanel Espiegle is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Coppertone has a soft, smooth texture that applies evenly on the skin. Β It’s blendable, and the color goes on slightly darker once applied than it looks in the pan (I think the matte finishes tend to do this; like the natural oils on the skin tend to darken them once applied). Β The color is buildable, though it’s fairly pigmented so I would advise using a lighter hand on fairer complexions and gradually building the color up to see how it works for you. Β It lasted seven and a half hours well on me, and it started to fade shortly after eight hours.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

My HG blush is Milani Mineral Blush in Sunset Beach (discontinued) and people often tell me this is a dupe but I hadn’t seen swatches, thanks! I may go pick it up!

I’m not really fond of matte blushes, but this is great on you. Love the way your hair looks in this photo, Christine! πŸ™‚

With Nars Gina and Chanel Espiegle in my crazy enormous blush stash, I think I’m safe to skip.. but this MAC blush looks wonderful on your complexion. I think shades like this work well on both cool and warm skintones too.

Did you change where it clearly states whether a product is LE or not? I’m not seeing it. I feel like this in not LE, but I’m not 100% sure. I do like the blush.

Hi Liz,

On the image, there is a square box in pink that shows P, LE, or DC – Permanent, Limited Edition, Discontinued.

My mother is super picky when it comes to blushes but she loves this one!
I think it is gorgeous, but Gina is on my wishlist for so long, I probably don’t need this too.

You look lovely as always, Cristine!

Hi Lily!

Unfortunately, I don’t! I’m pretty sure I have Sincere in my to-review-bin, but I haven’t photographed it yet otherwise I would check for you!

I thought this was a new color. lol. I asked when this color would be out at the pro store and they looked at me like an idiot. Of course it was South Coast Plaza so I wasn’t surprised. The sales people are a little stuck up.lol. They said they always had this color.
My question is, do you review all colors when you try them even if they were out for awhile?

Hi!

I’m trying to review some of MAC’s permanent blushes so I can use them in dupe comparisons of their new ones!
