A peachy pink, leaning more towards peach. I guess a melon shade? It is matte, which is great because I have highlighters that I need to get using and I only use them with matte blushes. A shimmery blush and highlighter would make me look like a disco ball. Anyways, it is a natural shade but it is a little more unique than the typical pink blush.
This is my favourite blush. I have fair skin and it is perfect for the natural look I like to achieve. I use a Mac 129 brush to apply it. I tend to break out quite a bit when I use other brands' blushes but I don't seem to have any problems with this one. I would be buying more MAC blushes in the future. I recommend this one to anyone but make sure you have the right brush!!!
Mac's Melba blush was passed onto me by a friend and its such a gorgeous natural colour. It suits my skin tone perfectly and I can see it suiting most people's complexions.
I apply just a little to the sides of my face to give me a bit of colour - Its a real day time blusher.
I probably won't repurchase this as its nothing special and I think Sleek blushers are fab and are a fraction of the price. I will use this up until it hits pan which I think will take a while!
Lasts a long time
This is a peachy pink blush, that leans more peach on my N18 skintone. The product is highly pigmented and does not have a lot of dusty kickoff when dipping your blush brush into the product. It applies evenly and is easily blendable. It is matte and gives the skin a beautiful youthful glow without any sheen or shimmer. It has a longwear time 12+ hours on my oily skin. Great for Spring, Summer or an overall everyday blush. <3 continued >>
this blush didn't "wow" me right away like MAC's blushbaby but it definitely is a keeper for those days when I want 0 shimmer! my all time favorite blush is MAC's springsheen and melba is the perfect matte version for me.
it shows up as a peachy coral and blends out with ease. pigmentation is stellar. love love love! I have super acne prone skin and my skin doesn't flair up at all from this product :D
I was looking for a blush that looked similar to Candice Swanepoel, a MUA member suggested Melba...and I love it!!!!! It's a peachy pinky colour and suits my pale skin... Favourite blush and I think it would look good on everyone!
my go-to blush that i think goes with any look. you can always put this as a natural blush or build it up. it's a beautiful MATTE smooth peachy/pink blush. it's very pigmented. i apply with real techniques blush brush. if you apply too much, it's always easy to soften with some transulent powder. i am just in love with this blush! the lasting power on this blush is not the same as my other mac blushes, and i wonder if it's because it's the only matte one i own by mac. i feel like i need to touch up the blush after 2-4 hours, which i guess isn't THAT bad. i'm nw25/tawney in estee lauder double wear
I was looking for a soft peach from MAC. When I asked the counter girl which she preferred: Melba or Peaches, she said Melba looks better on warmer skin tones and there's more pink in it. While Peaches has no pink, I can barely detect pink in Melba. It is really slight and only in certain lights. It goes on more of a brownish peach with a hint of pink. If you know MAC's eyeshadow soft brown, it kind of reminds me of that, except a little more pink. I have fair warm toned skin and this blush almost acts as a slight bronzer for me. It makes you look more sun kissed, bronzed, but not too much obviously. It wasn't what I was looking for but its still a good blush color!
I love this peachy color on my skintone, NC25 skin! It just warms me up and me me lot healthy. I love MAC blushes and this lil guy is matte. My new fave type of formula. Stays all day on my cheeks too. Great YT rec.
I don't want to give this a bad review, because it is a fabulous blush with a gorgeous color pay off - however I am NW20 and was disappointed, because it is very easy to overdo. It takes a lot of blending to make this work on my fair skin. I'll bring it back out in the summer when I have more of a tan and update my review then.
