MAC Next to Skin is a slightly cool-toned, very light taupe with a matte finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.21 oz.
MAC Next to Skin Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a "soft beige [with a Matte finish]." It's a light-medium, gray-ish beige with a matte finish and neutral undertones. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that could be blended out for a sheerer application or applied more intensely for true-to-pan color. I think this works really well as a contour shade on fair to light-medium complexions. When applied heavily, it was still visible as a shadowy contour on my skin tone (NC25/NC30). It's a lot more foolproof for fairer skin tones who want a subtle contour. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before fading. I couldn't think of any dupes for this shade.
