really beautiful blue pink shade with shimmer. Its my first mineralize blush. Staying power is good too.
Dainty is a beautiful color.I really wanted to love this,but my skin doesn't adjust to mineralize products.I returned it & to purchase another blush~ continued >>
For reference, I am VERY fair... NC15, UD Naked 1.0 (my HG), or NARS Sheerglow Siberia, year-round. Mostly neutral skintone, but lean yellow (any foundation with even a hint of red/pink undertone - no matter the quality - will oxidize orange on me). VERY dark brunette, that pulls copper when lightened, and true green eyes.
With that said, this color is PERFECT for me. With my coloring, coral-based pinks look the most natural on me. I'm confused as to why anyone would call this a "cool pink", "pinky-pink" or "over-the-top-pink", as it definitely has some golden/yellow undertones. Not quite peach, but almost. Definitely coral. And the shimmer is just right. While it doesn't look like it has shimmer once applied, it definitely doesn't look matte, either. A perfect medium. This blush has never changed color on me, either... stays true.
But only three lippies because it can tend to go on a little patchy, and staying power is definitely CRAP (glad I'm not the only one to have this problem). I can fix the patchiness (blends well), but no matter what I do, how I prep my skin, what other products I put on... I get maybe 3 hours of wear, tops. So disappointing, as this color really is so natural on me.
Weird thing is, it seems to be lasting me FOR EV AH. Even with having to re-apply after fading, this is the blush that just won't quit. I don't know if it's that I just love the color too much, or that I'm too cheap (or both), but I refuse to buy a new blush until this one runs out. It's been a year and I've yet to hit pan... darn it. ;P
This is my absolute favorite blush! This blush just enhances my natural flush looks so good all year around. It is always me go to blush, it never fails me. The blush isn't too pigmented so of you're in a rush you can just brush it on. There are some gold shimmers but they barely show up. The color is a gorgeous pink with a hint of coral. I think all girls who have around NC30 skin need to have this blush in their collection!
Have had this color and liked it,it was just ok though...pinky ish color, average!
NC 25, asian, yellow undertones. My current winter skin is on the lighter side of nc 25. I got this in a swap and after looking up swatches & reviews, I hoped it would be a nice softer yellow-peachy-pink. Strangely, it ends up being a brighter shade of just straight pink and like someone else said below, it oxidized to a weird wine color after the end of the work day. This is definitely smaller than some of their other blushes which is a bummer for those that love the color. I wish I liked this, but unfortunately not for me.
Instead, I've found that theBalm's Down Boy does exactly what I was looking for in Dainty. It provides a soft, buildable, yellowy-slightly peachy-but-more-pink that is perfect!
I still love MAC blushes!!! continued >>
I'm not a fan of dainty. i typically go for peach blushes and some pinkish pink so i though i'd really like this. i just felt like dainty was way too pink on my (nc20) complexion. if you like over-the-top pink blush, maybe dainty is for you, or maybe someone with darker complexion could wear this better. i would not repurchase.
I swapped for this and am glad I didn't actually spend the money for it. While it is beautiful, I don't love coral colors on my cheeks and I feel it kicks up and wastes a lot of product when brushed. I much prefer a bronzy cheek and porcelain pink MSF. Also, it seems like a small amount for the price.
Love it. The color is incredible on my NW20 skin. It glides on smoothly and blends like a charm. Without a bit of blending it can be SLIGHTLY chalky. I wear this more than any other blush I own. I wish I could purchase it in pan form, but alas, I cannot. No big deal. I wish the wear on this were better. Nothing lasts on my skin all day, but this only lasts about 4 hours.
I love this colour! It looks amazing on fair skin. My go-to everyday blush :)
