I decided to do a quick comparison of MAC Ripe Peach Ombre and Ocean City.
A little background – MAC Ripe Peach Ombre was released as part of MAC’s Spring Color Forecast in 2010 and I remember seeing the frenzy online for it and the high markups once it was no longer available. Ocean City released online yesterday with the MAC Proenza Schouler Collection.
Compact comparison. Ripe Peach has a very subtle shimmer within it that Ocean City does not have. Color wise, they look the same.
This is the best way I could think of to compare. For both compacts (Ocean City on top, Ripe Peach Ombre on bottom) I swatched the darkest shade on the left, middle is a mix of dark and light shades, and right is the lightest shade. Notice they look pretty identical? Exactly identical in fact. The ONLY difference I can see is the VERY subtle shimmer in Ripe Peach. The line in the middle separates which compact was which.
So if you were wanting Ripe Peach and couldn’t find it for a decent price, this is your second chance. Ocean City releases in MAC stores and counters on Thursday, April 24th for $30.00
Hope this comparison helps!
