MAC Yum Yum Yum Magic Dust Powder ($28.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle over a satin finish. ColourPop Prenup (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Lollipop (LE, ) is brighter (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Icing Sugar (PiP, $6.99) is warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Love is the Drug (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Black Opal Nectar (P, $8.95) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Dame (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Divine Desire (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s interesting how poorly this performed compared to Sweet Vision! The powder was much drier, looser, and had a chunkier consistency overall that made it difficult to use. The pigmentation was weaker with semi-sheer coverage at best, and it did not want to adhere evenly to skin as it was just so, so dry. If you used liquid or cream foundation and applied it while the base was still drying down, you could get better coverage, but it would still be difficult to blend. It seemed to wear about seven hours on me, but it already looked faded from the beginning, so it wasn’t as easy to tell!

Oh dear, this is terrible. I don’t want to work that hard to make a blush work, no matter how pretty it is in the pan. Your eye look is stunning.

Wow, I wasn’t too impressed by the initial swatch, but it even worse than I thought. Well, I was already planning to get Sweet Visions, at least I won’t be tempted by this one

I briefly entertained the idea of getting this (I need another blush in this colour family – which happens to be my favourite about as much as I need another eyeshadow like Inglot 419 (or Eureka, Snakeskin Dress, Sumptuous Olive….you get the picture) but seeing that D for dreadful rating, I am cured!
