I hope you had the best weekend! Don’t you just love it when you find a great dupe for a high end product? I do for sure. A lot of times if you search hard enough you can find a dupe. The quality may not be the exactly the same but the color could be spot on, and you can save a lot of money. Today I’ll be showing you a dupe for Mac’s blush in Peaches.
Mac Peaches is on the left and NYX Cinnamon is on the right.
I know from a picture these two blushes don’t look they would even be close to the same. But when applied they look very close. But let’s be real, these aren’t the same exact blush so they will be slightly different, but the price is the real winner here.
Mac Peaches: This is a sheertone blush, meaning it will be much more sheer than opaque. The above picture is 4 coats of the color to make a very faint swatch. This color can be buildable, but to me it feels like you are wasting product by having to use so much of it at one time. It is really pretty though and may work great on someone with fair skin. | $21 on here or at the Mac counter.
NYX Cinnamon: This blush is very opaque, by rubbing my finger over it once It is very creamy and full of color. The above picture is 1 coat. Because it is so opaque it would be harder to get a more sheer tone like the Mac blush. I love this blush A LOT! It lasts all day long, and is perfect for spring and summer. But don’t let the orange color scare you, it’s super flattering and it won’t make you look like an umpa lumpa I promise. I would probably just stay away from it or use a really light hand if you have really fair skin. I have a lot of blushes and this is the one I get the most compliments on, if that says anything! :) | $5.99 at Ulta.
Have you tried Mac Peaches or NYX Cinnamon? If so tell me in the comments! Also have you found any other dupes? I’d love to know! :)
Oooo can’t wait to try that blush! My current favorite is the e.l.f blush/bronzer combo believe it or not! It’s supposed to be a good Nars Orgasm Dupe…
Oh yea I’ve heard all about that one. I love great dupes! I definitely need to try it out for sure! :)
