Mac Hey, Sailor! Blush in Fleet Fast


Hi guys! I've been gone for a little bit because I've been doing some pretty random stuff. My aunt wanted my help painting her house and it turned into a full on interior design project that basically consumed most of my time. In addition, I started going to the gym because, well, I am getting a little "too" round around the edges. Anyways, Mac Hey, Sailor came out on the Mac pro website and I put in order for a few basic things and this only item from the collection. the blush.


I decided to do some comparison swatches for you guys before the collection comes out in store (although it is completely sold out online!) just so you know whether or not you want it, especially if you have something similar. 


Can we just stop and lets talk about how the price increased again? Why is Mac getting so incredibly expensive for products that are slightly okay? I think Mac is a very hit or miss line. Don't get me wrong, there are so many of their products that I adore, but there are also some that are just way too overrated. 


*sigh* Anyways, lets look at the comparisons. Yes! They are quite a bit of similar hues. Most of them are Nars but there are two Mac ones that I threw in as well that are very close to Fleet Fast.


Mac Fleet Fast is a coral pink that is a satin finish. It doesn't have a lot of shimmer too it, in fact, when you swatch it the shimmers are virtually invisible. At first, I thought this would be similar to Nars Orgasm but after closer swatching I realized that that was not the case. 

FROM L TO R: NARS AMOUR, NARS TORRID, MAC FLEET FAST, MAC INSTANT CHIC, MAC FLEUR POWER, NARS ORGASM, NARS SUPER ORGASM & NARS OUTLAW

Most of the colours look very similar to Fleet Fast in the pan but once swatched the colour differences becomes more obvious. I thought Nars Amour would look very similar but it is a lot deeper and more red pink. Someone suggested that Torrid looked similar as well, but again, it leans more red. Instant Chic, by Mac is way too pale and peach. Mac Fleur Power is the most identical however it still is a touch lighter and more pink. As you can see, Nars Orgasm is not even close. It is still way more shimmery, lighter and more pinky peach. The rest are not like the Fleet Fast as well. 

So, is this a must have colour? Maybe a little but not really. I'm sure you can skip out on this colour without missing it. Its nice but it isn't amazing. I hope this helped you narrow down your options! :D
