I've had this blush in my tank forever, and I've pulled it out maybe three or four times since I bought it. I liked the idea of a neutral blush, and this browny-rose shade sounded good on paper and in theory. However, on my C3 skin, I just felt like I looked sick or sunken whenever I wore it. I like a bit more flush on my cheeks.
Harmony is simply the most versatile and flattering shade of blush I have ever used. It makes me look like I have chiseled cheekbones (I don't). It is a slightly warm toned brown with plummy undertones. It just looks awesome. I do sometimes have to be careful with application, otherwise it doesn't blend well. Making sure all my moisturizer is set and good foundation/powder prepping does the trick. Also, circular brush motions tend to be better for me than linear strokes. Overall, a must have.
I am 40 years old, dark brown hair, fair complexion. Several years ago I worked with a young woman, blonde, very fair complexion. She always looked so "natural", yet you knew she was wearing make up. I asked her what she used and she said MAC "Harmony." I forgot all about it until about a month ago when I was ordering a MAC lipstick. I figured it wouldn't look as great on me since I am older and have darker features than she does. It looks AWESOME and I've worn it everyday since I got it. I love it. It blends so nicely (you only need a little). You look like you're wearing blush but you don't look "made up". It's a perfect neutral brownish/pink. It also lasts all day. I've had so many blush disasters. I was so pleasantly surprized with this one!
I really liked the color of this blush in the compact. Natural brown with slight pink tones. But I am fair-med in color and can't apply this to the apples of my cheeks without looking like a streaky, dirty mess. I use this, lightly, to contour my face under the cheekbones and the temples. It looks so wonderful when properly blended under Well Dressed. I suspect that during the oncoming summer months I will grow to love this on my soon-to-be-tanned skin. It will be very natural and flattering. I love the texture and blendability of this, so not a total loss. I just can't use it as freely as I'd like.
This is one of my favorite colors. It doesn't have any pink or peach tones, it's just a true nude blush...so you just look clean & fresh scrubbed. Love it!
This is my most fav blush that is in my makeup bag right now. I can wear this blush with anything. I can wear it on a regular day or on a night out on the town. I have very tanned skin, so it is perfect for me. I'm not too crazy about the container though. The clear plastic part pops off. I won't deduct any lipsticks for that though. Overall great blush!
I like the fact that this color is between a rosy and a bronze color. I love to pair it with Blushing from Glazewear Avon lipgloss, just be careful of the brush you use, if you apply too much, you will have to wash your face to take it of..it sticks to your skin easily.
I usually go for the flushing tones (Fleur Power, Loverush, Mocha, Breath of Plum), but I figured I'd see what the more natural shades were like. The MA recommended this beige-toned brown. I was worried it wouldn't show up on my honey C4 skin, but the subtle beige tone is flattering. After a few hours, the slight pink tone comes out for me. It's great for days when my eyes are the focus. Update: I must have been incredibly light when I purchased this; right now my skin is deeper than this blush and I haven't been able to get it to show well since I wrote this review (but I tan very easily). I'll have to stash this away and try again when I'm paler or something. Sadly, for now, it merely collects dust. continued >>
I use this only for contouring my cheeks. Other than that- as blush, it looks like dirt on my pale skin but it's a staple.
MAC blush does not have staying power--although--
It is a neutral browny with slight pink and looks great with asian skin (light-medium tone)
