MAC Cheek Pollen Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a "warm nude [with a Satin finish]." It's a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a satin shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented with a really soft, smooth, almost buttery consistency that applied well to the skin. It blended out beautifully, while the satin finish gave the skin luminosity without emphasizing pores. On me, it lasted for eight hours.
