MAC Groovy is a moderately warm-toned, medium orange with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
MAC Groovy Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark orange with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to semi-opaque applied with a brush and more buildable coverage from medium to semi-opaque when applied with a fingertip, which was in line with the formula's description.
The texture was smooth to the touch without being noticeably wet, and it felt more powder-like as soon as it came into contact with my skin, but one could gently press on the surface and leave an indent behind. I liked to apply it with fingertips as I felt like the warmth of my fingertip helped to apply it more easily--faster and more evenly--over a brush, though a brush could be used. It worked well over bare skin as well as over base products as it didn't seem overly prone to lifting up base products. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.
