I absolutely love Mac Cream Color Bases, they are the sleeper of the Mac line, since you never hear much about them. But try them and be pleasantly amazed at the versatility of this product. They are creamy to apply and wear for a very long time. I mostly use mine as blush, but sometimes I use them on the lips, too. I used to use them on the eyelids, but just don't prefer that anymore.
Quartz is a pinky plum color, not to dark. No shimmer. Makes an excellent blush color. continued >>
Tip: Use a foundation brush to apply this blush to your cheeks. This gives skin a very nice glow.
Hint: To get the popular 'glow,' avoid foundation and powder on cheeks. Prime skin with moisturizer instead. Cream blush is a great way to enhance flawless skin. continued >>
