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 😛
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… 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. 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.
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 🙂
