Makeup Geek Love Affair Blush ($9.99 for 0.15 oz. in pan form; $12.99 for compact) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Milani Lady Rouge (06) (LE, $7.99) is more matte, brighter. Guerlain Madame Rougit (LE, $67.00) is lighter. MAC Simmer (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, warmer. NYX Pinched (P, $5.00) is warmer. NARS Amour (P, $29.00) is more muted, warmer. MAC Mocha (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had excellent color payoff, both true to pan and quite pigmented. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and almost buttery, which made the blush easy to apply and soften and blend on the skin without it turning splotchy. The finish is luminous without emphasizing pores–more of a light glow than anything shimmery or frosty. This shade lasted for nine hours on me before starting to show signs of fading.

This is so pretty! and actually goes perfectly with the Givenchy lipstick! is it similar to MAC’s Fleur Power Christine? I have been itching to get that one for ages.. couldn’t find a decent swatch anywhere!

I have no idea if it would fit into MAC’s cardboard packaging, but they are the same size in terms of width.

They’re so blendable, and as long as you use a little less to start with, I think any skin tone could wear this one!

Thanks for this review babes 😀 I was making a list for a huge MUG order for my birthday next month. This looks perfect. I just wanted to know about other specifics since I’m oily and have huge pores on my cheeks 🙂

This is beautiful. I wonder how it compares to theBalm Toile… I don’t have it with me right now, so I’m just trying to imagine off the top of my head.

DUH, RIKKI. Hahaha, I’m so sorry, I didn’t even notice this was a thing. That is so cool. I’m gonna use this more often. Thanks for letting me know! [hides into corner of shame]

What a beautiful shade! It’s just the color I love but I think it’s a bit bright for me. I have to look at the MUG website to find a peachier, lighter shade. I definitely want to buy one of these. I thought I wanted MAC Sea Me Feel Me (is that the name, lol) but when I swatched it in the store, I was disappointed because it was darker than I expected and it didn’t swatch well, i.e. no color payoff, for me

Gotta love pink! Marlena’s swatch for this blush is so much more pigmented and I was afraid it would too much. Your swatch shows it is more wearable. I was eyeing Spellbound, Romance and Infatuation for my first order but I might have to put this one on the list! 🙂

Thank you I just ordered bliss, love affair, and spellbound which are my favvs! I hope they are as good as my mac ones, because there much cheaper!!
