Colour for the cheeks and face in a satin finish. Comes in a nautical blue and white striped compact.
This review is for the 2 limited-edition Powder Blushes releasing with MAC’s upcoming Hey, Sailor! Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Launch Away! (Satin): True peach
- Fleet Fast (Satin): Pinky, gold coral
These blushes come in standard MAC compacts. They are lightweight plastic with see-through lids. The compacts are durable and portable and decorated with blue nautical stripes.
Launch Away! is a pale peach with a hint of pink. Most people will find it difficult to get this color to show up on their skin; this color may also not compliment those with deeper skin colors.
Fleet Fast is a coral-pink. The color itself is beautiful. But, to my surprise and slight disappointment, I found this color a little harder to blend out than Launch Away!
Both colors have a slightly dry and stiff formula. The powder isn’t chalky or dusty, though. Both colors leave an almost-matte finish, as is typical with Satin blushes.
Neither color had as much color payoff as I wanted. You need to layer both colors–Launch Away more than Fleet Fast, since it’s a much paler color.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
You will need to apply a few layers on each cheek and buff out the color to make it even.
For $21.00 you get 6 grams (0.21 ounces) of product, which is $1.00 than a normal MAC powder blush. The price increase is due to the limited-edition packaging.
