Rose Gold by Sleek dupe for Style Powder Blush by Mac?

Hi everyone,

I thought I would compare Style Powder Blush by Mac and Rose Gold by Sleek 
as they seem very similar.

Let's see:

(click to enlarge any of these photos)


They look very similar in the pan:

Swatches:
These were just dry swatches from the pan.
Rose Gold looks a bit more chalky and a bit more on the pink side. Also, the gold particles look a bit bigger.
Style looks more smooth and on the peachy side. The gold particles look tiny and almost invisible.

Swatches on my hand:
With flash

More natural light but still with flash:

Well, I would say it's a close call.

Colour:
There is a tiny difference in terms of colour: Rose Gold is more pink and the main difference to me is the gold element which is much more visible and stronger than in Style.
Style is more peachy in colour and the gold totally mixes with the colour  but you can clearly see it nonetheless.

Texture:
Rose Gold seems to be a bit more chalky but it's very smooth when you apply it.
Style is much more softer and it applies like a dream.

Price:
Style by Mac retails at £16.50
Rose Gold by Sleek retails at £3.99

They are not 100% the same but maybe 90%?

What do you think?
