MAC blushes review - Stunner & Equilibrium (MAC Me Over Collection)

Hello dolls!

These are the 3 MAC blushes that i truly adore. I got Stunner and Equilibrium ( from MAC Me Over Collection) from Liyana Awang, a friend who went to MAC's warehouse sale recently.. I am comparing them to Melba since i already did a review on it in the last few posts. Click here to view :

 Here's the swatches on the back of my hand and arm.


This blush may look a bit intimidating for fair-skinned group of women since it looks really brownish, more like a bronzer rather than a blush. Because the finish is satin, it doesn't really work as a bronzer.
This blush has a natural finish with hints of peach and gold undertone. I think this blush will suit almost all skin tones, just like Melba.
I love to use this blush whenever i'm sporting a more dramatic eye look and need that natural glow on my cheeks. FYI, I'm an NC20-25.

You can always look at reviews on Makeup Alley regarding any products that you are eyeing on. At least that's what i do. And i love Temptalia for her detailed reviews and accurate swatches.

This is what wrote about this blush :

"MAC Equilibrium Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bronze” with a satin finish. It’s a soft tan with a hint of orange in the undertone and a pale, golden sheen. It is a touch warmer and less ruddy compared to MAC Pressed Amber, but it is nowhere near as orange or as intense as MAC Springshine. When sheered out, it has some similarity to Guerlain Sublime Radiant Powder.
MAC blushes last around eight hours on my skin (normal-to-dry), and Equilibrium has a very soft, smooth texture with good color payoff. It’s pigmented enough to give ample color but not so intense that one has to tip-toe around the blush when using it."

Stunner :

This blush has a satin finish, a very pretty pink with some hint of peachy-champagne undertone. It gives a really natural pinky glow on the cheeks. However you might need to swirl your brush a bit harder to get more product. It's not as pigmented as Melba.

Here's what wrote about this blush :

"MAC Stunner Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described a “light coral pink” with a satin finish. It has more pink than coral–I would describe as a pale, strawberry pink with a hint of peach. It has a champagne-beige sheen, which gives it a less-than-perfectly-pink color. It is pinker than the softer side of MAC Mighty Aphrodite. It is a little lighter than Benefit Bella Bamba.
What’s nice about this shade is that despite its lightness, there is no chalky look or feel, and the pigmentation is there–but as a lighter color, it’s just light. I expect this shade to do well and be one of the more popular items from the launch; I think it will flatter cool and warm complexions. I do think it might be too light for deeper skin tones, but it might make a nice rosy highlighter."
