MAC Pink Swoon Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a "soft yellow baby-pink." It's a slightly brightened, medium bubblegum pink with blue undertones and a matte finish. I'm not getting a yellow tone to this at all, and the description for the pan version of this is "soft candy pink," which seems more on the mark. The texture is soft, smooth, blendable, and just lightly powdery but that seems to be the good type of powdery--the kind where it helps with blending and doesn't look dry on the skin. It had good color payoff and lasted for eight hours. It seemed a little lighter but more pigmented than the pan version I bought recently, but I do find that MAC's matte/satin blushes tend to darken depending on the natural oils on the skin, so my arm may be more or less dry at a given moment (I don't apply moisturizer or anything right before swatching, just natural occurring changes in the skin!).
