MAC Pink Desire is a slightly cool-toned, dark fuchsia with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.21 oz.
MAC Pink Desire Powder Blush ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia wit cool, blue undertones and a smattering of fine, fuchsia pearl. The finish was just barely shimmery, so it looked more luminous and satiny on the skin than overtly shimmery or frosted.
The consistency was smooth, finely-milled, and just soft enough that I could pickup product with a brush and not have to dig into the pan without getting too much product on the brush. It was extremely pigmented, so a little went a long way, and my best advice would be to use a lot less than you might normally use to make it easier to work with. I found the formula to be fairly blendable, but it was just pigmented and intense enough that it did take longer to soften the edges if I over-applied compared to a less intense blush. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading slightly.
