Nice blush. I have dark brown skin so this compliments my skin tone without looking too obvious.
This is an amazing color and the quality, as always, is amazing. I have darker skin so a darker blush is the only kind that will show well. This is the perfect color for me and it looks so natural. It also stays put on my face and isn't too noticeable. The only reason i wouldn't buy this again is because it's a bit expensive. I only got it because i got my makeup done at make and i had to buy somethings worth 50 dollars. However, if you're willing to spend this much money, Go For It! I found a similar color in drugstore brands, although it doesn't have the same sheerness or quality of mac.
I actually used to not like this blush when I first got it. Whenever I put it on it turned out dark on my skin, I was probably putting on too much or maybe I was too light at the time (NC40). When it's winter, I guess I'll just put on less.
It's like my every day blush since summer started (I'm like an NC45 now). The color is like a dark coral..I don't really know how to describe it lol.
Love this blush! Gives a beautiful colour without adding lots of shimmer! Definitely one of my favourites in my wide range of mac blushes! Use this one almost everyday. I am nc42 for reference.
love love love! was looking for my first blush and so happy i found this one. i tried margin (after looking at it online lots) but it just didn't do anything for me. but pinch me is the perfect color and i love that i can apply it with a light hand or a bit neavier. it is a nice shade that is easy to wear.
p.s. i almost got nars dolce vita but i found the mac had a beautiful color pay off without needing as a careful a hand as the nars.
p.p.s. for reference i am nc35 :)
I LOVE THIS BLUSH! This is my go to blush. I wear this almost every day. It's the perfect hint of blush color on my cheek! I'm NW45 with a reddish undertone for reference ladies.
MAC's "Pinch me" is almost a mod/mauve pink that's a great "normal pink" blush for those who are olive/tan complexion. I was recommended by the MAC MUA to get "Mocha" but that didn't work out too well (you can barely see the color). MAC's "Pinch me" is sheer and enough to apply a normal amount of blush for the "everyday" look yet also works great for night time makeup (as you can apply more). Love it. And for reference I'm an NC35. :)
Finally! It may sound strange, but this blush goes great with red lipstick. I've been looking for something to complete my pinup makeup look. The saleslady tried to convince me to get something that was so light that I could barely see it. I'm glad I went with my gut and chose this one. I needed something that would show up in pictures. It's a rosy color that isn't too pink, if that makes sense. It literally looks like my cheeks have been pinched or that I'm kind of flushed from exercise.
Overall, I buy think that a lot of department/specialty store makeup is over priced and not really worth it. This blush is worth every penny. I tried many drugstore brands and none could compare. I also found that most of the drugstore blushes were barely pigmented.
I love using this blush because it gives me a corally color without a lot of shimmer. I'm NC45 and this blush works well for my tone. It's not too bright and can be blended out to give a nice flush to the cheeks. Currently I use it in conjunction to miliani bronzer (used as a contour) in medium. The packaging is typical of all MAC blushes- it works but I feel they look a little cheap. I don't see myself hitting the pan anytime soon because I have so many blushes lying around so I can rotate.
After receiving R&R Bedroom blush today from a swap I noticed something about it. It looked really familiar. Its the same exact shade as one of my all time favorite blushes...Pinch Me by MAC. This is one of my first Mac blushes ever. The only one I ever hit pan on. I was in love with this blush and steered away only to use some of my many others. Im NC50 for reference and this shade looks amazing on me! I highly recommend it. And again its an exact dupe for R&R Bedroom blush for those looking for it or needing a back up. When worn and swatched I can't even tell the difference between the 2. Love it! continued >>
