Mac Supercontinental VS RMK Mix for Cheeks

by Sonia G.

You already know how much I love and rave about the RMK Coral Beige blush but this Monday I was having a look at one of the Mac counters in Geneva and the girl working there said : “most of the items were sold out but we have just received 1 of each a few minutes ago if you are interested in anything“… the right place at the right time.

I had a quick look at the Style Seeker collection and saw this Mac Supercontinental blush, totally right up my alley. Swatched it and immediately told her I wanted it.

Got back home, tried it… I have been using it everyday since, well .. three days in a row… what a feat ๐Ÿ˜›

Of course I still prefer the RMK but, this Mac Supercontinental deserves a little rave too, the problem is that it is also limited edition… ย Why do all the good things have to be LE ???

I don’t know if you can still get it in the US or anywhere else, but if you can and if you love this kind of fresh coral shades, that’s probably one of the best options out there. The lasting power is good and doesn’t look chalky on my cheeks. ย Check out Temptalia swatches and review which is as always so well done.

On the cheeks the difference between the two is not that striking, you will have more possibilities with the RMK due to its 3 stripes but if you swirl all of the shades together, then it gets really close.

I love to wear it on top of light to medium foundation coverage and with contour (I am using the Tom Ford shade and illuminate here), it gives a gorgeous and fresh dimension to the cheeks.

No blush

Mac Supercontinental

Mac Supercontinental

RMK 04

Even though RMK wins again, the glow looks more natural, I really deeply love this Mac Supercontinental!

UPDATE Sept. 15th, 2012

Following to Yancy questions, here are some additional swatches for the comparison of Cle de Peau, RMK, TF and Chantecaille (the blush pan from the Turtle palette)

The RMK are a tiny bit more shiny than the Cle de Peau but not much, actually the shine tones down and it reverts more to a glow after a few minutes. The TF Love Lust in comparison is way more shimmery, same for the Chantecaille.

I took some swatches with different white balance settings maybe it helps to see the difference of the shimmer a bit better.

 

I hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Welcome back intrepid Sonia ! Just to say I’ve now bought the Tom Ford blusher brush to apply my RMK 04 ,and also because of your recommendations I have the Burberry Almond eyeshadow , which is marvellous ; AND the Addiction Blond Sugar eyeliner , ditto .My credit card lies whimpering ๐Ÿ™‚ The NARS nylon straight- edged brush is soft and has a very fine edge if you are still looking . How do you stop the tightline shadow depositing on the waterline below ?
Because of all the comments on Hakuhodo I’m DESPERATE to get hold of some , but I don’t seem to be able to from the UK.aNY IDEAS ?
Thanks for all your truly excellent recommendations which have all turned up trumps ! hxxx

Thank you Helen !
oh so you finally decided to get the TF ๐Ÿ˜€ yes.. I agree it’s a tough month for the budget ๐Ÿ˜›
At least we splurge on things that we really use and love, and that’s priceless ๐Ÿ˜‰
It also avoids wasting time in the morning and buying things that will only take room and dust instead of being used !

I am having so much problems with the tightline, I am struggling to make it work, love the result but I am not very patient sometimes !
The only way I manage to do it now is with a little Hakuhodo G5515, I slightly wet it either with water or with eyeshadow transformer – but really very slightly – and pick up some powder, then I draw the tightline but from above the lashes and not from below the lashes as we should be doing it with a flat thin brush…
At this moment I am having problems with my eyes, probably due to the bike riding and the wind.. I don’t know but they are really watery and red so I temporarily avoid the experimentation, will wait that they are back to normal.

Hakuhodo brushes are only available online on their Hakuhodo site : http://www.hakuhodousa.com/
They deliver very fast, I choose the 12usd shipping to Europe and the brushes are here in approx 5 days !

I am so glad that you are happy with your new purchases ! I hope you will continue to enjoy them !

My eyes don’t enjoy being tightlined either. I either feel like I have a film over my eyes after tightlining or my eyes get all red which isn’t particularly attractive…..AND no matter how water resistant the liner, it will always end up coloring the lower rim too. As I like to line the lower waterline with pinky/beige for the ‘fresh & awake look’ I avoid forcing the issue by tighlining the inside of my upper lids too. I find that if one draws a FINE line over the top & sort of into the upper lashes it has a similar effect as tightlining but without the eye irritation.

Sweet Make Up Temptations 13 September, 2012 - 8:12 pm

That’s reassuring in a way… I thought I was doing something wrong but I am now reading that many people has an eye irritation afterwards…

Buggsiebee, what about the J’s ??? any news by any chance ?

This blush was the best tip ever! I bought a back-up once I realised that it was limited!!

Thank you b.b for when you gave me advice re Tom Ford blusher brush v. Suquu . I think you would have enjoyed watching me on my shopping trip to Selfridges , going back and forth to each counter and fondling the brushes ! The Suquu was much smaller and less densely packed than the Tom Ford , so even though I remembered you saying that squirrel hair was better for dry skin both you and Sonia hadn’t given it the accolades heaped on the T.F. It’s gorgeous ! I’m now waiting for a shipment of Hakuhodo brushes ( J142 ,J122R ,J242G,J220G,J5522)as I just HAD to find out what all the fuss is about !!!!!!

And to Sonia : have you any recommendation for eye-make up remover please ? I’ve tried loads , and they all require more than one application , and my poor old eyes really don’t need to be pulled and stretched any more than is absolutely necessary !
Looking forward to the next post Sonia hx

Hi Helen, I wish I was there in Selfridges with you ๐Ÿ™‚
I use only, and ONLY, the Bobbi Brown Instant long-wear (the one that you have to shake before use). I have been using it for years and I could not find anything better than that. I have tried Lancome, Chanel, etc but they didn’t work as well for me.
Before I was using this BB also for the face but now I use it only on the eyes. You damp a cotton, leave on the closed eyes for a few seconds, push against the lashes very gently then gently wipe off the makeup.
For the rest of the face I use micellar water, until the face cotton pad comes completely clear (works as a makeup remover and toner and I don’t need to rince with water afterwards…)
I hope this helps, everybody has his own skin and preferred methods… but I hope this helps. It’s the easiest makeup remover routine for me ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s nice to have you back. What a vacation! I was considering getting a new peach blush. I found Tom Ford Love Lust too frosty for my oily skin and felt it had slight brownish undertone, which tend to make me look sallow in a very unflattering way. I tried the Tom Ford because it was often described as florescent and that’s an effect I like in blushes provided it is not frosty. I tend to like sheer application of pigmented, bright colors in blushes as more commonly considered natural colors like subtle rosy colors or beige peach or pink or plummy or ruddy colors look bad on me. I don’t like good with red blushes either. I do better with pinks or some peaches that are somewhat pastely. I like Cle de Peau Cheek colors for the texture and the degree of sheen. But I wouldn’t mind a bit more stronger pigmentation. (I also liked Chantecaille Delight for its color but found it slightly powdery and just not with the most flattering texture for my pores and such. Of course, I don’t know if you are familiar with that one or not.) l’m very curious to try RMK blushes and was wondering how it compares with Cle de peau or Chanel Jouse Contraste (US version) as I happen to be familiar with them. I almost feel I’m abusing your generosity putting you through such a lengthy blabber for a blush but would be thankful for your opinion.

Sweet Make Up Temptations 14 September, 2012 - 7:33 am

Thank you Yancy ๐Ÿ™‚
I love all your comments, it’s what makes this little blog so alive… so thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

I also love Cle de Peau blushes, I have only one, a peach one, and it’s excellent, flattering and not powdery at all, although I still prefer the RMK, the reason why I don’t have more Cle de Peau is because it’s not easy to get in Europe.
I do have a few Chantecaille blushes, it’s a brand that I deeply love, but I don’t remember all the names right now, actually I remember the Chantecaille blush in the Turtle palette is my favorite from the brand! Again, I still prefer the RMK…
I have many US and EU Chanel Joues contraste and I am liking them too (although it’s not a consistent factor with Chanel, some have too much shine, some not enough pigmentation, some can be too powdery or muddy, too much money spent on those JC because I actually use only some of them… ) but when you get a winner, it’s a real winner.

To me, these Mix for Cheeks from RMK are gems, they have the pigmentation AND the glow AND the lasting power. They are not too frosty, the powder texture feels creamy and never powdery. I have the 4 available shades in the range but since you have 3 stripes in each blush, even if the blush is small, you can still manage to pick either one or several shades with a pointy brush and create even more possibilities or effects, and I also use them on the eyes. If you can get RMK, just get RMK ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s high impact guaranteed..

Thank you so much! You always impress me anew how nice and helpful you are. I will definitely order an RMK blush. I found an online retailer (Beautybar–UK based I think) and it looks like they offer free shipping everywhere. But with the international shipping and all, I just want to make sure few things and I’m afraid I’m importuning you further. With your dry and smooth skin, the Mix for cheeks look great and you assured me it is not too frosty. But after my
disappointment with Tom ford Love Lust, I would like to avoid ending up with another too shiny blush I have no use for. (I really envy dry skin girls!) I can’t wear anything more shiny than the Cle de Peau peach one (I refer to it since I know you have that one). How does the mixed coral (#02) compare to the Cle de Peau Peach with regard to sheeniness? And how does the mixed coral compare to RMK Holographic pink coral in terms of both color and sheen? (I think you prefer the mixed colors but again I’m concerned with my skin issues.)

Sweet Make Up Temptations 15 September, 2012 - 1:16 pm

Hi Yancy, you are not importuning me so don’t worry, it’s a pleasure to help !!!:)
I took some pictures and I have uploaded them in the post for you to see the difference better.
I forgot you also asked about the Holographic and right now I cannot reach for it… my boyfriend is repairing and reinforcing my drawers.. guess what ? they are too heavy and break … I really don’t know how this could have happened ๐Ÿ˜›
I will let you know later if there is a big difference with the holographic coral.
I am afraid I can only speak for dry skin…
I think you shouldn’t be afraid, it has great lasting power and the finish is really very close to the Cle de Peau.

Helllloo Sonia…..?!!!!!
Are you CRAZY? You already sent me a bazillion goodies with the R&R blush & I was happy to give you the Sisley. I hope that you might possibly get some use out of them.
How did you find the Omorovicza Gold series? Was it good for your dry skin? My skin is not that dry…..just on the upper cheeks and eye region – so perhapy the Gold creams will be too rich for me?
I have so many foundation samples & have decied to try a few out. I started with the Suqqu powder foundation glow 25 which is a powder to cream like foundation and it looks great on my combi skin. Have you tried it ? I don’t find it drying at all. I’m on a foundation mission at the moment:))
Hey, another nice MAC blush – from the Office Hours collection which Temptalia & almost everyone else hates – is Stubborn. Neither Temptalia nor Allurabeauty reviewed it because it wasn’t avaiable yet but it IS a goodie:))

Sweet Make Up Temptations 14 September, 2012 - 8:45 pm

Sure I will get some use out of them, I love them ! I just had little time to play with everything I received recently since I was away for so long but this weekend will be a Cle de Peau, Chantecaille and Sisley weekend and hopefully I will be able to finish the J Series review… I can tell you that it’s going to be probably my longest post ever… ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is already very very long and I am not even close to finish.

I am using the Omorovicza serum daily and the eye cream when I remember I have it… otherwise my reflex is to use my current one ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t have time to properly clear and clean my makeup dresser since I arrived… About the gold cream I will write to them to ask how I have to apply it, the texture is thick and feels rich, it’s not easy to blend into the skin but I am probably not doing that right… they were very kind and told me that if I had questions I should contact them, so I will just to make sure I am using everything correctly ๐Ÿ˜‰
I have a Suqqu “Frame fix moist pact foundation” sample that Selfridges gave me when I was there but I haven’t opened it yet, is that the one you are talking about ? hmm probably not…

Oh gosh …. STUBBORN is a blush for me, just because of the name !!! ๐Ÿ˜€
I found swatches here : http://crystalcandymakeup.blogspot.ch/2012/09/blush-stubborn-de-mac-collection-office.html
Reminds me of the new TF Narcissist that I need to get ๐Ÿ™

Buggsiebee 15 September, 2012 - 9:47 am

The Suqqu powder foundation glow appears to have been around for a while. Not a new product.
I also have a sample of the Frame fix so I’ll compare them over the next few days & let you know.
Yipp, stubborn is a great name for a blush for me too:)) It’s not like the new TF at all. The TF ( when sheered out ) is more similar to the bright side of the Suqqu Gradation cheeks Ex-02 for Fall 2012. The TF Narcissist is terrifyingly pigmented ๐Ÿ˜€
Stubborn is warmer & more plum colored.
Looking forward to your J-series post. I can just imagine the length of it and the amount of thought , effort & time you have put in. Your day most definitely needs more than 24hours!!

I just got the Armani, I have started with a sample and I have the bottle now. Not sure I got the right shade though, I might have taken one shade too light (5)… I really love the texture, it feels so different !
This week I will be testing it against the New Dior Nude and the Omorovicza complexion enhancer… what a trio !! We’ll see !
Well, if you fall, 45mph is already too much ๐Ÿ˜€ so take care ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hi Sonia! I too am testing the Dior Nude (020) against the Armani Maestro . I love the texture and finish of the Armani but I definitely don’t have the correct shade (5.5). Which shade are you trying? I know we are close….

Reply
Sweet Make Up Temptations 7 October, 2012 - 4:37 pm

Hi Stacy, I bought shade 5 but she gave me a tester of the 5.5 (or so she said because it’s not written anywhere on the sample, eventually the only place I see a number it would be a 6 and not a 5.5, but it looks more like a 5). She told me to try the sample so that I could still exchange the new bottle if the sample was indeed the right color, but I am puzzled… because the bottle and the sample seem exactly the same color.
Is 5.5 too dark ?

Reply
Stacy 7 October, 2012 - 5:00 pm

It is for me… Is your sample made at Armani rather than made at the counter? That’s what I started with and I could never find a number. I want the same “tones” just a shade lighter than 5.5. What color in Dior Nude are you trying?
It’s times like these when I wish I could just pick up the phone and call you ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet Make Up Temptations 7 October, 2012 - 9:46 pm

๐Ÿ™‚
I have no idea about where the samples have been made, I am sending you a picture (I took it with my phone so it takes ages to upload… I will probably fall asleep and will need to wait till tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ But you will see, it’s a tiny tiny little thing.
I think I will give them a quick call tomorrow to see if they have received the other shades (they hadn’t this Wednesday) and then I can make sure I am starting with the right shade, here the bottle costs 85 chf (1=1) so I better be sure.
The Dior Nude are just samples 020 and 030 that I will mix to see if the texture works for me, then if I can wear the texture and if I love it, I will need to have the foundation matched.
I can give you my phone number ๐Ÿ˜›

Stacy 7 October, 2012 - 10:11 pm

So it you are darker than 020 but lighter than 030 the 5.5 Armani might work perfectly. It truly was just one shade darker than I like (it matched my arms ๐Ÿ™ ). When you determine the color would you like me to send it to you? $48 for Dior $62 for Armani foundation $40 concealor. The councealor is very good but again I didn’t have the correct shade.
It would be so much fun and so easy to just pick up the phone and call! But then we would have no money for all of these goodies! We may just have to do it one day though….

You’re right, I got this in shade 102 and it’s a good match. I like RMK liquid foundation’s texture but unfortunately it oxidized on me. This new one is quite good so far, it kinda blends into the skin shade and no oxidation in the past 4 days. Do you want some samples before buying?
Oh, I got weak and bought the brush too.

Reply
Buggsiebee 8 October, 2012 - 6:06 pm

Just so that you don’t have to be weak alone……I absolutely plan on getting the brush too:)
Yes I do have the Shu # 18 and my beautiful little Fu pa which are probably equally good, but…………
I’m a pitiful little brushjunkie, so it has to be!
I don’t want to bother you with organising samples, I’ll just go ahead & try the #102.
The foundation is not available at Beauty Bay yet & I doubt that they’d stock the brush anyway so I’ll go ahead & order from Bon Bon.
Thanks for the help cc :))

Sweet Make Up Temptations 1 November, 2012 - 9:46 pm

Hi ๐Ÿ™‚
I am afraid there is not much to choose from in Geneva, you will get Tom Ford lipsticks (only the lipsticks) in Manor, there is no Makeup For Ever in Geneva, there is Smashbox in Marionnaud, there are some Mac counters (but really much more expensive than in the US) in three places (Manor, Globus and Douglas). If you go to Globus you’ll find Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown (but the prices are insane). There is By Terry in some Marionnaud shops, I think you will have to rely on online shopping sites to find your beloved products…
I will send you an email so that you know where to contact me if you have any other Geneva shopping question ๐Ÿ™‚
