MAC Launch Away 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!

Anyway, here is one of the products I picked up. It is MAC blush in Launch Away

Launch Away is described by MAC as a true peach. For me, it looks a little more light slightly-peachy pink than actual 'true peach'. It has a satin finish. 

While it is quite light and pale, I utterly love this on my cheeks. It actually looks a lot like my natural blush! 

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

While they are both pale colours, Launch Away is more pink-toned while Immortal Flower is more actual light peach. They are very different, and 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!

  1. Do you think it would look chalky on tan skin? Thanks for the swatches, I was afraid it would be too similar to IF but it's not!

    1. When I swatched it on my arm (NC25-30), I admit that I thought it looked a bit chalky, but when I put it on my cheeks it actually looked pretty good. Somewhat glowy! I think you should definitely try this on yourself. I'm almost sure it will suit you well!

    2. Thank you, I will check it out!

  2. I bought Fleet Fast but Launch Away looks very pretty too x

  3. Beautiful shade but not essential (I think)
