MAC Blunt is a slightly warm-toned, very dark plum with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.21 oz.
Blunt is described as a "muted golden brown." It's a dark, rosy brown--almost plummy--with a mostly matte finish. It looked warmer and more like that "golden brown" in the pan, but it darkened up a lot and looked much cooler in tone (though still warm overall) swatched on my arm as well as on my cheeks. I am warm-toned, so things looking cooler than they do in the pan is usually not something I experience! The texture was fairly soft, moderately blendable, but it wasn't the best texture for such an intense, pigmented blush as it required extra work to blend and diffuse the color. It wore well for almost nine hours on me before I noticed fading. Chanel Plum Attraction (LE, $45.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Earthshine (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). ColourPop Trippin' (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Tea Petal (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S404 (P, $23.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Viseart Bronze #3 (PiP, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Film Noir (P, $24.00) is darker (80% similar).
