Love this! Perfect sheer "natural blush" color on me (NW 15/20) Not too dry & powdery, seems to "melt" into my skin to look completely natural. Will definitely repurchase continued >>
i luv this blush!!!! I just bought this a couple of days ago. the girl at mac try it on me and i luv the way it look, it looks exactly when i naturally flush its perfect, and it looks real since its a sheer tone. Doesnt look powdery which i hate or heavy. I could use it real sheer or add more for a night out its perfect. i will definatly repurchase it.
Blushbaby wasn't what I wanted, but I am still going to give this Sheertone Blush by MAC good ratings. It is sort of a pinkish-brown. I'm a NC/NW25 and I found that I could only use a little bit of this. Otherwise, it looked too dark.
I think this blush would look good on medium toned and darker skinned girls. For a fairer tone, this would be too dark - unless the dramatic look is preferred. With the Sheertone formulation, a little blush goes a long way. This should last me a while. I use it when I want a sort of sun-kissed look. Use a light hand with this blush.
UPDATE 1/18/12: Fell a bit out of love with this. It feels ruddy, muddy on me these days. Maybe my skin is just changing. But it is a classic. UPDATE 10/2008: I have started to try new blushes (Springsheen in summer, Pink Swoon for a brighter face than Blushbaby), but Blushbaby is still the bomb! If you are new to blush, this is the perfect color to try. If I had a daughter, this would be the first blush I would hand her to get started. Thanks to the Sheertone finish and the subtle natural flush look, it is so hard to go wrong applying. I also use this when I don't want full makeup, but want to look awake. So if I am just throwing on something, hair in a pony tail and need to go, but want to look awake...I apply some Blushbaby, maybe some undereye concealer, curl lashes and go. It gives me an instant wake up to my face. If you are looking for the Shroom of blushes, this is it. ORIGINAL POST: This is the prettiest blush (pinky/beige). So soft and natural it works great on my NW20 skin. It gives me a fresh natural blush look. I quit my blush search the day I found this gem!
This is, hands down, the most beautiful blush on my NC20 skin. Couldn't love it more.
I've had my eye on two blushes, and this is one of them. (My other is Benefit's Dallas blush.) For the longest time I had this idea in my head of "You can't spend more than 7 or 8 dollars on blush since it's such a minimal part of makeup. (Or so I thought...) I used to use a slightly shimmery blush from some company that I can't remember the name of... Then, while at my favorite source for makeup (MAC of course) I got distracted by the eyeshadows and just sort of unknowingly migrated into the blushes and Blushbaby just sort of popped out at me for some reason, although it is sort of plain looking in the pan... It's not, though, on your face, as I soon came to realize. The MAC SA put it on me, and showed me how I could build it up for a more flushed look (like for going out at night) or how I could gently sweap it across my cheak bones for a very subtle flush. And it's matte!! I was so happy to find this... After a week or so of mulling it over in my mind, I picked up this blush with my usual makeup refills. I paid 17.50 USD for this, and it's 6g of blush. (So it will last you a good while, even whith daily wear.) I've looked at many other brands, and I've never found a blush quite like Blushbaby. I will definitly buy again!
This blush is for neutral days when you are in a "no-makeup makeup" mode. Since it is so sheer, it takes a few tries to see the actual blush color on the cheeks. Once it does however, the effort isn't wasted. Blushbaby is a brownish-pink color that helps you look naturally made-up. No fuss or overstatement, just an inconspicuous blush doing its job to make you look less of an untidy, stressed-out girl and more of a "better" you.
I never would have thought that Blushbaby would have been so flattering on me. It looks so blah in the pan. I usually wear plum or mauve colors but this one is a very soft natural peachy pink. It's not obviously peachy or pinky. It's natural but it shows up, just not too much. It's less bright than what I really wear. I think I would actually purchase this again and again. I just love the subtleness of this color as well as the quality. It doesn't come with it's own brush so I use a large powder brush which increases the natural look. I am so pleased with the MAC products I have recently been trying.
I've always worn darker, more orange blush colors, but the MAC MA tried this on me and it looked so lovely! Of course, I bought it -- and I don't regret that I did! It's perfect for everyday wear with a light hand, and for nighttime if you build it up. It looks natural on my slightly-tanned, NC-35 skin. Like others have mentioned, it is a pink-brown that is more pink than brown. I'm never going back to orange blush as I realized they make me look tanner and a bit scary!
I'm still on the lookout for a perfect blush, but this one is quite nice! Blushbaby is a pretty pink/brown blush that creates a natural flush, and is very easily buildable. It's pretty much foolproof as well.
I'd probably repurchase
