Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy


When I saw my BFF at the beginning of November, she gave me a bag of goodies, including this sample of Mary Kay blush in the shade Shy. The first thing I noticed is that it seemed like a dupe of NARS Orgasm, and I was right- this is a DEAD ON dupe, closer than other shades that have been compared to NARS.

Although this sample was on a little card, it was easy to get a feel for how it applied. It is pigmented and lasted all day; I didn’t even need to use all of the product, that is how pigmented the little sample was.

In the pan, this blush is very affordable at $12 for .18 ounces. In comparison, NARS blush is $30 for .16 ounces. You do need to have some kind of storage for it, which you can get from Mary Kay, or just use a Z-palette or other magnetic storage palette.

As you can see in the swatches, Shy and Orgasm are dupes, whereas Milani Luminoso is much more peach-toned than the other shades. Springsheen from MAC is a little darker than both Shy and Orgasm.

I probably won’t purchase Shy right now since I have Orgasm already, but this is an awesome alternative for it! 🙂
