I am very fair with yellow undertones and blue eyes and I love this blush. Gives me a great, earthy, natual flush and plays off my eyes nicely. When I went to MAC, I asked for something that was a very natural "pink" blush and when she brought me this, I thought she was nuts. It kinda looked terra cotta to me or too brown. Well she was right. This is a great natural blush on my skin and it does veery towards a brown rose flush - not classic pink in anyway and not too peachy either which is the only think I can think the name refers to. But the pop of color I get is great. Longevity is good for me - up to 4 hours before I see a fade.

Perfect matte peachy blush! I went into Mac and had a surprisingly helpful employee help me, all day I had been searching for the perfect peachy matte blush that I could wear everyday underneath my favourite highlighters. My light skin tone perfectly matches any peachy blush and they are my personal favourite colour on my cheeks along with a nice coral colour. The lack of shimmer is perfect because then highlighter can be applied over the top to get a subtle sheen to the cheeks without an overpowering shimmer drawing attention to my slightly oily skin. Love this product and it is a fantastic staple to any makeup collection as I believe it is a universally flattering colour, as the girl who served me said it was her personal recommendation despite having a far deep tan than I ever will! 100% recommend.

I love this shade! It just looks beautiful, natural and gives that peachy/pink flush look. This goes perfect with bronze look or really almost any look. The only thing I wish is that the staying power was longer. But overall it's a great staple to have :)

I bought this because the color is supposedly flattering on everyone. Which it definitely is! The color is so pretty and looks very natural on my NC25 normal/combo in the summer skin. I wore this blush for a year, not even realizing it CAME OFF after a couple of hours. It is quite pigmented, so I don't understand why it comes off. I've worn it alone, over foundation, BB cream and tinted moisturizer, but nothing helps. I love Mac, but this time I'm disappointed. I'll just stick to your eyeshadows from now on!

I am C7 in mac for reference with brown eyes and black hair. I bought this for a little over $15 on ebay, which I am glad about, because Mac blush prices have climbed to $21 for some ungodly reason. 😒 But anyway, this is a pretty, peach, matte blush. I wanted a matte natural looking, non-pink blush that I could wear with basically any look in any season and I think this blush is just that. The staying power is good, like most Mac blushes, but not perfect. It really helps if you have a good foundation on underneath as a base. Most of my blushes, no matter the brand, stay on all day with a good foundation. It is pigmented and soft. I apply with a blush brush from Merle Norman. Due to my color, this blush really isn't "prominent" on my cheeks. It just gives me a nice peachy flushed type of look, definitely not dramatic. No matter how much I apply I would never look overdone.

I bought this blush over 3 years ago and have been in love with it ever since! Awesome color and it looks really nice with blonde hair and blue eyes. It's super flattering & goes with every makeup look. I definitely recommend. Melba is all I wore at a point and even when I try new blushes I always go back to Melba! A+!!

I really like the color of this blush. It is so pretty and matte.
But... I don't think it lasts very long - at least not compared to Nars' blushes.
I feel that's the problem with MAC. Somehow it needs to last a little longer, because I hate to reapply my makeup within a few hours. I just need it to last! But the color is definitely delicious!

Why oh why did I not pick this up ages ago?!?!?

I am such a blush addict, and this is the most perfect peachy/coral colour. It looks flattering on my warm nc35 skin tone. I have been obsessed with it since purchasing it about a month ago and been wearing it non stop. It is perfect for the spring and summer seasons. Application is not an issue, I found the real techniques blush brush to give me a gorgeous effect. The only reason it does not get a five star rating from me is because the staying power isn't as great as some other blushes. Overall I do think many different skin tones can pull off this stunning shade. Pick this up if you're looking to add some spring blushes to your collection.
