MAC blush in Margin and Sunbasque Review

Margin vs Sunbasque

 I thought I’d do a quick comparison between the two since they look quite similar on the pan. But first off; thank you S for gifting me Margin on my birthday. Aww I’m so happy, I’ve been wanting to get it since forever!

Aren’t they beautiful? Both of these MAC blushes are from the permanent collection so they should be available on any MAC counter in Indonesia. Margin is a MAC Frost while Sunbasque is a Sheertone Shimmer. Naturally this makes Margin a lot more shimmery compared to Sunbasque. The thing about MAC’s shimmery blushes, though, (I’m talking about the regular blushes, not the mineralized ones) is that they never seem to accentuate those huge pores on the sides of my nose. They just give this beautiful sheen that reflects when the light hits the temples of my cheeks. This is why I feel like MAC’s blushes are the safest options for me when I feel like picking up a new blush for my makeup collection.

I hope you’re able to spot the difference even though it’s such a crappy photo. Basically, Margin is more of a peachy pink shade (sort of NARS Orgasm-ish, don’t you think?) while Sunbasque is a deeper terracotta shade. I gotta say I love them equally. Sunbasque is great for days I don’t feel like putting on too much eye makeup while Margin could count as an everyday blush; it’s so easy to pull off. If you’re lighter than NC 20, Margin would probably be the better pick. On the other side, I think Sunbasque would look amazing on darker skin tones.

Both of these blushes have amazing staying power (though that kind of depends on what brush you use and how you apply them as well) and they last me a looooong time. I think I got Sunbasque over a year ago and I’ve been abusing it quite regularly but as you can see, there’s still no dent on the pan! Outrageous.

So, what’s next on your blush wishlist? I’m kind of hoping to get MAC Breath of Plum but I’m eyeing on NARS Angelika too. Ahh, to be a woman!
