I love a good dupe, particularly when the said dupe is a fraction of the cost of the original. I originally saw Essence Blush Up! in Heatwave (RRP $6.45AUD) on Emma’s blog and immediately thought of my now very unavailable limited edition MAC blush in Ripe Peach which is easily one of my favourite shades in my collection – it’s frickin huge and I doubt i’ll ever finish it but it’s still nice to find something comparable.
As you can see in my swatches below, they are similar but not similar enough to throw into the dupe pile. With the MAC version leaning more pink and the Essence leaning more orange. However, I’m still glad I picked up the Essence blush because the colour is gorge’ and it’s super pigmented.
I also did a post on the MAC Ripe Peach blush yonks ago on my blog, excuse the shit photos & invisible swatches – thankfully I am a bit better at that stuff now!
Just a quick one today – End of financial year is kicking my ass at work and I needed a breather, so a quickie blog post it was. Hope you’re having a good week and if you’re in finance or something similar – my thoughts go out to you!
