Pinch O' Peach is supposed to be a warm peach shade. It's actually a warm pink with just a tinge of peachiness. Like a true sheertone, it looks incredibly natural on. However, on fair skin like mine, this can look a bit like a sunburn. It wore ok, for about 5 hours.

my favorite blush
I have an older color called Briar Rose from the Sleeping Beauty collection. It's matte and just takes a bit. The color stays true all day and i can wear summer or winter.
A beautiful sheer tone!
Peachykeen is a wonderful warm coral/peach pink sheer blush with gold shimmer. Many call this blush from MAC a dupe for Nars orgasm. It is similar in color, and a few dollars cheaper. This blush is marketed as a sheertone, and thus the product isn't really buildable. You might have to reapply this blush throughout the day to maintain the beautiful warm glow it adds to your cheeks. I prefer to work with blushers that are more pigmented, and through your application you can sheer them out if you need too, but you can't really do that with this blush because it is very sheer already! I am giving this blush a 4.5 because it's color is beautiful, it's texture is very nice, and it delivers precisely what it says it will. I am taking off half a star for staying power.
My perfect blush.
I was kind of scared when I bought this online because of the violet-tone nature to the pink, and being NC15 I thought it would make me look quite, clowny. However, I think it had to be the perfect blusher for me, it has a gorgeous satin finish and buildable coverage and so I don't thankfully get the 'clown' effect. The only problem is I do have to reapply once or twice since I regularly wear makeup over nearly 15 hours at a time but I still haven't found a blusher that does wear that long.
By far my favorite!
The MAC line of powder blushes are just the BEST. They definitely are high quality. My favorite shade is Melba! What i love the most about them is that they last all day, I don't have to retouch at all! I've had mine for almost a year and I still haven't hit pan- and I use it everyday!
M.A.C blushes in general are very high quality and offer pretty much any colour in the world you can think of. I don't think they are the best quality blushes around, but they are still pretty amazing in my opinion. I currently own seven, one of them being "Melba", which is a dusty peach shade.
It is the perfect peach colour for fair skin in my opinion (I'm NC5) yes, 5. not 15! and I often find that real peachy shades (think M.A.C "Peaches" blush), tend to throw too much orange on my skin and make me look clownish - Melba, does not do this, but instead provides me with a fresh, natural flush of the perfect shade of dusty peach that allows me to wear pretty much any coloured lipstick with it. (goes amazingly with reds). Wearing time until fading starts: about 6 hours.
