MAC’s Powder Blush formula is supposed to be easy to apply, long-wearing, and have “fantastic colour.” It’s hard to generalize for MAC’s blush formula, because it varies a lot from shade to shade, even within different types of finishes! Some of them are very good, others are so-so, and a few are complete misses. The more frosted/shimmery shades tend to have the softest and smoothest textures and are easier to apply and blend out on the skin, while more satin and matte shades can sometimes be powdery, firm, or stiff, which makes blending more challenging. The wear is typically between six and nine hours but closer to seven to eight hours on average. Style had really good, nearly opaque color coverage with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t powdery nor was it stiff. On the skin, it has a gorgeous sheen that doesn’t emphasize pores. The color wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Whoah!!! This one is a total shocker! In the pan, it looks so pale and blah that I was like, “Yeah, right, this won’t even show up on me!”, but on your actual cheeks, this is a kick-butt shade! Much, much brighter and more pigmented than I ever would’ve imagined. ?

Poor, neglected little MAC blush! It’s overpowered by the holiday palettes. No surprise there. Looks gorgeous on you, of course. And the dupes aren’t all that dupe-y. I’ve got 3 & they all look highly different from one another. I never thought of Romance, Rockateur, or Sugarbomb as looking anything alike! Actually, they do share some features…

Do you think this is darker in tone than Margin, Christine? I had Margin for a while and it was too light for my skin, by the time I managed to get it to show my cheeks were crusted with shimmer. I’m around NC35.
