MAC Kindergarten Red Blush Ombre ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “crimson into pale nude.” It’s a medium pink with subtle cool undertones and a satin finish. In the pan, it looks like it fades from a light beige to a rosy pink. Guerlain Angelic Radiance (LE, $53.00) is lighter. LORAC Underrated (LE) is cooler-toned, more matte. MAC Modest Blush (LE, $27.00) is lighter. MAC Pink Sprinkles (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $30.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Tarte Fearless (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter. NYX Rose Garden (P, $5.00) is slightly warmer. Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $45.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture of the blush is soft, smooth, but thin, so it ended up having more buildable coverage than really intense pigmentation that was, at most, semi-opaque. I just went back into the archives, and the blush ombre formula was originally described as a “medium-buildable coverage” product. It doesn’t adhere as well to bare skin if it’s on the drier side (my arm is drier than my face) and can look a little powdery initially. Once it gets blended and buffed into the skin, the satin finish really comes forward and gives a light sheen that’s natural but not shimmery or shiny. As it is only semi-opaque at most, it pulls warmer on me, but I would expect those with cooler undertones would see this appear slightly cooler-toned instead. On me, the blush wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

This will release January 29th online and February 5th at counters and stores.
