Mac Ripe Peach blush vs Estee Lauder blush in Peach Nuance

I know a lot of people missed out getting MAC Ripe Peach blush, I for one hope they bring it out again but I am glad that I did manage to grab myself one at the time! I jumped on that bandwagon and enjoyed the ride!

Many have compared Ripe Peach to an Estee Lauder blush in Peach Nuance, but it it really similar? I know that Estee Lauder own MAC, but is it really worth their while releasing the exact same blush in a different house? So I bought Peach Nuance from Estee Lauder to compare the two and put my mind at rest.

Very pretty in the pans I have to say. Though it is worth the mention that with MAC, you get a LOT more product than Estee Lauder. I cant remember what I paid for Ripe Peach, but I know that Estee Lauder blushes are £23.50… it looks considerably smaller and I dont think I paid anything like that for Ripe Peach.

These are meant to be dupes? Really? ermm… no… in a heavy swatch Peach Nuance is considerably more pink and also doesn’t have as much of a gold sheen to it.

Even applied with a brush they look quite different… completely different.

So any of you hoping to find a dupe in these… dont bother. They may have a similar look to them, but the outcome is very different, don’t waste your money trying to find a dupe in these, but just appreciate how beautiful they both are and you wont have two blushes the same in your collection. They are stunning colours and make any face look alive and glowing.

On the subject of Nuances…

I also purchased Rose Nuance by Estee Lauder…

Simply gorgeous… This works amazingly on the apples of the cheeks, giving a simple flush that isn’t too over powering.

What are your thoughts on finding ‘Dupes’? Don’t bother looking for them or trawl the internet to find your true love?
