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.

This blush is so pretty! It's subtle enough to wear any time or place but still really makes your look pop and stand out. The shade is really nice because not only does it make a huge difference but it still looks very natural. I use it along with a bronzer and highlight for contouring and it really helps pull the whole thing together.
I love this color so much! It's a very light, plum wine color with a rose undertone. I like to use this on the apples of my cheeks, along with a light dusting of bronzer and highlighter. Using my three-step method with this blush really makes a difference and makes my skin glow!
This blush, although it has a lot of shimmer, gives me a very natural look. It makes my skin glow, and it warms up my face beautifully! The price is a little much, but I promise it is well worth it. You do not even need a lot of the product to give you a beautiful flush of color! I recommend these highly, but use a very light hand!!
I'm not a blush girl, but I wanted to try out MAC's blushes - I already have Harmony, but I can only use that as a contour since it's so dark, so I needed to a more cheek-friendly color! But I'm still a girl that's not afraid to wear color (but not on my cheeks since it's looks so unnatural.. I don't blush naturally) so I got this!
It's a bright pinkish-coral blush in a satin finish - Perfect for my dry skin, it glides on wonderfully.
As you probably can tell, it's a very bright color, so you have to be careful with it - One light stroke with lots of tapping of the brush goes a long way! Otherwise you'll look like a clown.
It's a really great blush to have; use a light coat for fairer skin, and build it up for darker skin tones!
Really recommend this lovely blush.
