  • Works best with : peach/ coral blushes and light eye makeup

MAC Blush Style

  • Price : Rs 980 for refill
  • Shade : coral peach with golden frost. Very similar to the NARS O Blush
  • Texture : very fine and very pigmented. Can easily be overdone. If overdone it can can look too shiny or greasy because of the golden finish of the blush.
  • Staying Power : 5+ hours
  • Fragrance : Nil
  • Works best with : most orange, peach and coral lip colors. Even with beiges, it looks nice.
  • Skin tones : all skin tones. But if you have a lot of pores, you might want to go for a more matte finish. This may accentuate your pores.
  • Do I like it ? LOVE IT!
  • Rating : 4.5/5

I am wearing Style blush on my cheeks in the pics above.

MAC Blush Harmony

  • Texture : very smooth. Not chalky at all. Buildable so gives you less room for mistakes.
  • Staying Power : 6-7 hours
  • Works best with : almost all shades except pinks.
  • Pick it up : if you are looking for a perfect brown shade for contouring. Can be worn as a blush as well. Just add a hint of pink on the apple of the cheeks so that the color does not look too flat.
  • Skin tones : medium
  • Do I like it ? Love it!
  • Rating : 4.8/5

I have contoured my face using Harmony. You can see the shade especially near my jawline in the pics above.
