MAC Rhubarb #2 Robert Lee Morris Powder Blush ($39.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a deep, reddened copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff with a soft, velvety consistency that almost effortless to use when it came to blending and diffusing the edges. The lack of powderiness made it easy to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to get sheerer coverage and build up if desired. The finish was luminous without accentuating my skin’s natural texture. On me, it lasted for nine hours before fading noticeably. I wish MAC’s regular powder blush range used this formula–it’s so much more luxurious and easy to blend!
P.S. — These blushes are substantially large than MAC’s regular blushes (0.21 oz.), so the price per ounce difference looks more like this: $109.53/oz. (regular) compared to $111.43/oz (this one). That being said, powder blushes take forever to use up so I don’t think that more is necessarily more here for every person. The packaging is unique and more egg-shaped, but it may not be practical for everyone.
P.P.S. — This is NOT the same shade as the Rhubarb in MAC’s permanent line (hence the #2!).
