MAC Pressed Amber is a slightly warm-toned, dark brown with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.11 oz.
MAC Pressed Amber Mineralize Blush ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "melange of nude, beige, and brown" that all comes together as a medium-dark, muted brown. It's brown without being overly warm or dark--no chocolate, bronze, or the like here. It's more aptly described a brown nude, I would say, because it retains a lot of the natural color found in the skin. The texture is like Feeling Flush, with a very soft, smooth powder without frost or glitter. It has a satin-like sheen that looks natural when applied to the skin. This product could benefit from improved wear, though, as I do find it fades faster than the average blush--I get around six hours of wear (tested this shade yesterday) before it begins its fading decline.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Baked minerals refined into a powder formula provide an exceptionally sheer application. Lightweight formula glides onto skin to achieve luminous colour that builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. Veils and enhances the cheekbones with a pearlized shimmer.
