MAC Fleet Fast Blush Review and Swatches - Hey Sailor

The anticipated MAC Hey Sailor collection is now available in the UK. It is this year's summer collection. To be honest, what drew me most into it was the packaging - it's been a while since MAC has come up with collections in special packaging! 

But after having a good look at the collection, there are actually a lot of really good items. I've picked up 3, but I'd love to get a 4th. But will see how it goes and whether my self-control will last until that product sells out from the shops!

Here is one of the products I picked up. It is MAC blush in Fleet Fast

Fleet Fast is described by MAC as a pinky, golden coral. In the pan, it looks like a coral pink, but in swatches, it looks like a lightly burned orange with golden flecks. It has a satin finish. 

My swatches on this are very dark to show its buildable intensity, but if lightly applied on the cheeks, it looks so pretty!

Here it is next to MAC Modern Mandarin blush from this year's Tres Cheek blush collection.


While they are both bright pigmented colours, they are totally different. Fleet Fast is more pink/pink-toned while Modern Mandarin is more orange with a stronger frosty sheen. I wouldn't call them 'dupes'.

Comparison swatches:

Immortal Flower, Launch Away, Fleet Fast, Modern Mandarin

Available from your local MAC Store or the website.
While stocks last!
