Make Up For Ever #420 HD BlushMake Up For Ever #420 HD Blush ($26.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as an “Indian rosewood.” It’s a muted, warm-toned orange with a hint of rose and a satin finish. MAC Modern Mandarin (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, powder. NARS Exumas (P, $39.00) is more matte. Chanel Presage (62) (LE, $38.00) is lighter, brighter. NYX Cinnamon (P, $5.00) is brighter, powder. MAC Ambering Rose (P, $21.00) is darker, powder, more shimmery. MAC Early Morning (LE, $25.00) is a powder product. Chanel Frivole (P, $43.00) is lighter, brighter, powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The pigmentation is rich and intense, so a little goes a long way, but the formula is very forgiving as it is extremely blendable–not just when it’s in its cream form, but as it dries down to a powder-like finish, it can still be blended and manipulated, much like your traditional powder blush. It sheers out readily, but it can be applied more intensely from the get-go or layered for more opaque coveage, depending on what you’re going for. The formula is incredibly versatile as a result. #420 wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I love colors like these! They can look so natural if you want them too and sometimes double up as a little contour-cum-blush which is amazing! I love Chanel destiny for that!

Love this shade – I don’t think I have it yet, but the colour is just right up my alley! MAC’s Ambering Rose is one of my favourite shades, so this looks like a keeper for sure 😉

This translated a lot more subtle than I expected. It’s very pretty on you! I tend more towards neutral territory with NARS Altai and Chanel Cheeky. Still, this formula is on my must buy but I’m completely overwhelmed by the shade choices. Last week, I pulled up your reviews but I think I need to swatch my stash to try and isolate my choices.

Wow! 😀 In the pan it looks like kind of a dark brick colour, but swatched and on the skin it’s an effervescent tangerine coral! So pretty on you! 🙂

Christine,
I must disagree with the poster that likes the mixed shades of warm cheeks and cool lips. It does not do you justice.
My preference is similar tones, cool with cool and warm with warm. The cheek I color looked great, nevertheless.
