MAC Jeanius: Overdyed

MAC Overdyed Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright magenta” and has a satin finish. It actually seems more like a muted magenta to me–it’s by no means dull, but it’s not in-your-face magenta, either. There are cool undertones running through it, but it is not as strong of a blue base as some other magenta shades. When I wore it, it looked almost like a plummed magenta on my cheeks. Overdyed as nicely pigmented, easy to blend, and wore all day for me.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: This has to be one of the more wearable shades of magenta I’ve seen.  For that reason, I think this shade will appeal to a lot of people.  The pigmentation makes it suitable for darker skin tones, while the subtle cool undertones make it wearable for warmer skin tones, too!

I like the color of this in the pan, but I’m not so sure it would be so pretty on me… It reminds me a bit of Stila’s universal blush color thing. I forget what they call it, but the color looks similar.

I love the brightness of this blush but I already have Her Blooming Cheek and, to be honest, I can’t see myself every using it up (I’m in my 50’s….I’d have to live to 100 to use up Her Blooming Cheek). So I will try really hard not to buy this one.

Overdyed reminds me of Stila’s custom colour blush, at least by the swatch on your arm. I don’t have a lot of blushes but mine are all in the blue-based pink family simply because it’s the most flattering on me. This might be the one product out of the collection that would tempt me to break my no-buy (especially since I’d need to use very little of it!)…

Very pretty! I’m glad that this fuschia is on the more muted side, just because to use this color I personally want it more foolproof haha I’m so heavy-handed !

Hi Christine! I’m sorry, i know you have adressed this on the faq, but i’m not really sure what magenta means… Being “less Magenta” than Amazon Princess is like being less blue based or less warm based? Or maybe is something else? I always thought magenta was the same as hot pink…but not I think i’m may be wrong…

Thank you so much for your answer, it really helped me – i’m gonna get amazon princess instead of overdyed 🙂 oh, and sorry about the typos 😛

Will you recommend the amazon princess or overdyed for an NW47 skin? I know you said both are good but i am torn between these too. Consider the price, size and versatility i guess.

Hi, can you tell me if this blush would match with MAC’s Pink Nouvea lipstick?….I have been look for a pink blush that is the same tone of pink as that lipstick!

Hi Christine, I love your site and check it daily!!

Anyway, I bought this blush and have no idea what lips to pair it with. Do you have any suggestions? My lipstick collection is extremely limited mostly with light pinks and corals.
