Spend Vs. Save : MAC Dessert Rose Blush

Looking for a dark pink powder blush? Read on..

MAC Blush in Desert Rose (matte) - Php 1,200.00
NYX Blush in Desert Rose - Php 350.00

When applied with a light hand, both really gives me a flushed look.
The NYX blush isn't powdery and staying power is as good as MAC.

Tip for Fair skintones
Warning! Both are really pigmented.
You only need to TAP your brush once or twice.
Make sure to apply with a stippling blush or a kabuki brush, or you'll end up looking like a clown.

Swatched on NC20-25 skintone

As you can see, NYX's blush is more pink, while MAC is pinky brown.
When applied to my cheeks, I really can't tell the difference between the two.
