I've had Dame for almost a year now, and this was my everyday blush for several months. To me it has a bit of blue undertones in it and I wish it didnt, but that just means i should buy one of MAC's many other blushes to choose from without it. I am fair skinned and I use my MAC 129 brush with this blush. It does take quite a bit of product to get some color on my skin. However, I havent even hit pan yet so its ok.
I am obssesed with MAC so I do own alot of there blushes,It is my favorite brand so far and I do own Dame and it is a nice color,pretty pink, more natural looking to me so I use it sometimes, It isn't my favorite color but might buy again...with MAC there are so many color choices so I explore but I myself like the brighter colors and my favorite are the mineralize ones with shimmer:)
This is pretty much the perfect colour for my skintone. It just makes me look healthy and alive! This really is my go to blush. And I really think that it's a great colour but it isn't something very special or unique. It's just a pink blush with blue/cool undertones. Though I am very glad that there aren't a lot of shimmers in it, because then It can look a little bit too glittery for a normal day when I am also using MAC's lightscapade. But I will buy it again if I will ever finish this!
this hardly shows up on me and im NC25. i would stick to fleur power, mocha, peachykeen in the future. it is a beautiful color, but i most def think it's for fair skinned ladies. i have to keep applying over and over to get any type of color to show.
UPDATE: I tried Pinch O Peach which at first glance seems similar; I was thinking perhaps better suited for summer on me. But it skewed a bit orange on me and was difficult to make work. So I tried Dame with my summer lippie and eyes and it works perfectly! I don't know how, but it works. I have never found a blush before that I could, with ease, use all year round. Amazing...thank you Dame!
ORIGINAL POST: This is the first straight up pink blush I have been able to pull off. Even the MUA said it looked like it "warmed up" on my face and didn't look as cool as it is. Maybe that is why I can pull it off? I am NW20 in MAC foundation, but am golden with cool undertones (or vice versa my veins look blue, but I have a definite gold and pink tone to me). But the point is, usually neutral to warmer peachy pink shades work best for me. Too cool colors like deep reddish brown plums make me look sick. I can look ruddy in Blushbaby, Mocha was nice, Pink Swoon was awful on me, but Tarte Tipsy is heaven in the summer for me, Blushing Bride was great in cooler temps & Fleur Power is great all the time. So I can handle some cooler tones (as long as they don't go that red-toned brown place & stick to a berry tone), but I have had the hardest time pulling off straight up pinks. This is the first straight up pink blush I have been able to pull off.
A nice pink blush with cool undertones. The finish on the skin is quite matte, no sparkles which is great for every day wear. Not much to add. It is a very good basic blush in my opinion.
Compared to Well-dressed doesn't refresh your skin that good. But a huge plus is that a light swipe gives you a decent amount of pigmentation.
Unf, new favourite blush! On the right side of „natural“, meaning: looks perfect, illuminating (satin finish!), never overdone, flatters my NC15 skin tone immensely. Perfect blush for any snow white gal out there. It provides an etheral elven look. Before that “Well dressed” was my turn-to blush whenever I was in a hurry or didn’t know what to combine with what. Out of my giant blush collection this is quickly becoming my favourite right now. “Dame” is a wee bit darker than “Well dressed”, more on the plum side, I’d say. Pigmentation is decent. It could be better but to me it’s perfect the way it is because this is exactly why it’s so easy to use. I don’t think it’s possible to overdo, really. Would totally repurchase!
This does not look anything like it did on Mac's site but I love it. It looked more baby doll pink in photos and in person it is very very subtle. It is the perfect natural blush for a smokey eye. Beautiful soft pink matte shade. On me this just blends into my skin with a hint of pink. It gives just a hint of color that is perfect when you want the focus to be on your eyes. I apply with my Nars yachiyo and it provides the perfect amount. I also never have any trouble with Mac blushes lasting all day on my skin. Would purchase again but I have yet to hit pan on any of my Mac blushes. They last forever A+
actually quite impressed! bought it on a whim as I am more of a peachy girl, but it is a lovely colour! leans quite purpley on my skin as I build it up (it can be quite sheer unless you slap it on), but I love this as I think bright pink cheeks are just too much on my complexion! I actually dropped this on holiday, but it was easily pressed back into the pan with the bottom of a makeup brush (LOL) and although it lets a little burst of dust out when I open it, it is still usable and travel-able. I really like the packaging too, although it is pricey so definitely think hard about what shade you are going to buy
Great everyday blush! It is the perfect pink, only downside is that you have to build it up quite a bit to really see it. If it was so sheer it would be perfect.
