MAC Flowerescent Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a brighter, medium cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had a clay-like feel to the touch, where the product would have a visible indent if pressed firmly enough, and was easiest for me to apply using a fingertip to pick up and then pat onto my skin.
The product had more medium, buildable color coverage that applied evenly, blended out well, and wasn’t prone to lifting up base products. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to have “eight-hour, fade-free wear” with an “ultra-blendable” formula that has “sheer” but buildable coverage with a “gel-cream texture” that is “bouncy.” It’s gel-to-powder blush that has a lightly emollient, slightly sponge-like quality to it–more like a smoother, more emollient clay-like texture to me–that feels more like powder as soon as it comes into contact with my skin.
The pigmentation was definitely more sheer to semi-sheer, buildable to medium to semi-opaque coverage with some of the deeper/darker hues in the range having more coverage and better building capabilities. I preferred using fingertips for application as I felt it was easier to faster to apply, though fingertips will yield slightly higher coverage compared to a brush. The formula applied well–most of the time–over bare skin as well as over base products like liquid foundation without lifting it up. They wore eight hours before starting to show signs of fading.
