this is very raved about blush from mac, it looks plain in pan, and when you swotch it, it just looks like a warm bronzy colour. i think its ok, its not super awesome must have. i got it because some gurus on youtube raved about this blush, would go well with bronzer though.
What a lovely surprise this turned out to be. I was always curious about MAC's Warm Soul blush and have swatched and tried this on at the counter many times. I always felt it didn't show up on my skin so I always held back. However, I finally purchased and how I love this blush! It's all I wear these days. I'm used to pinky shades but how I can go back after trying this. This is a warm bronzey, peachey shade with a nice sheen. I love a little shimmer! Not glitter. It may seem that way swatched but I don't see it on my face. Also, I love illuminating type ingredients. It gives your look dimension without it looking flat and matte. Yes, it gives any look some warmth and a very pretty flush of color. I've been using coral or nude type lippies to complete the look. Also apply with a kabuki brush so yes you can build up without it looking off. It's all about the brush and application sometimes. Love!
HG of blushes...and miraculous in that it pretty much looks good on everyone! If I could bring only 1 item of makeup on a desert island, this would be it! It's that good!
Since summer is here and Im no longer the colour of paper, I thought I would branch out and go for a warm toned shimmery blush. This is perfect for summer, its a peach-y bronze with gold shimmer and looks amazing on the skin. This is like an all in one colour, you can get away with this as a bronzer on the cheeks, and even a highlighter because of the shimmer. I'm excited to see how this works on me when I'm pale again!
OMG, this is my favourite blusher! I love this so much more than any of the others I own.
It has quite large flecks of gold running thought it, but strangely they do not show up on my cheeks (thank goodness). I think if I had seen this in store, I wouldn't have chosen it - but this was bought on a whim from eBay (was going to get Love Joy) but I am soooooo glad I have this! It is quite pigmented, so you have to be light handed, but the colour is so gorgeous! Its like a rusty, reddy brown which is not quite a bronzer, but not quite a blush. I am so in love with it! It gives me a really healthy glow to my face without looking too made up.

My new favorite blush. I tried it on at my MAC counter and couldn't believe how pigmented it was on my NC50 skin....a beautiful warm glow! LOVE THIS BLUSH!
I frickin love this blush. Color is a gorgeous warm, bronzy pink color. I could easily just use this as a contour/blush color on my face. Gives a nice sheen to my cheeks without looking overly glittery. Pigmentation is amazing so just a little tap with your blush brush would be enough. This is my first mineraliZe blush from Mac and I am impressed. I doubt I'll ever hit pan on this color, but if i do, I would definitely repurchase! :)
love this blush so so much. it gives me the perfect amount of color. it also gives me this bronzy, slightly golden (due to the bits of shimmer) flush to my cheeks. i find this very flattering on me. i just wish mac would change their blush packaging into a compact with a mirror. it would make everything so much easier and handy!
This blush is absolutely gorgeous. It's actually saved me from giving in to the lure of the tanning salon in wintertime. I have sallow skin which is great in summer because I tan easily, so in summer I usually have a nice golden glow. However, having sallow skin in winter can be a nightmare! My skintone turns sort of greyish with a hint of yellow and everyone is always asking me if I'm sick. Not really the look I was going for.
Thank God for this blush... Just a touch of it really livens and warms up my face so it's exactly what the doctor ordered, other than a trip to Barbados.
The colour doesn't look very nice in the pan... it looks kind of brown/grey/beige/taupe with a hint of pink. However, on the skin (mine at least), it turns into a warm pink with a little bit of bronze to it. Strangely enough it looks really natural, like a warm flush.
This does really require a light hand because it's extremely saturated, and you know what Oscar Wilde said about a woman wearing too much rouge... ;)
I have a feeling this colour looks different on different skintones but will somehow suit anyone, so definitely try it on and see how you fare! Highly recommended.
Adding to the great reviews here already. I'm med-tan Indian with NC40-42 skin (winter-summer) and this blush is quite subtle but glowing on me. I use a moderate amount of the product for the shade to show up (unlike my NARS Taj Mahal, where just a little touch of the brush picks up enough), but I can adjust the intensity easily. It's my daily, go-to, all-year-round blush, and when I want to travel light, this is the only blush I need to carry. The colour lasts all day, and even with daily use I've only made a slight indent in the surface of it. There's actually quite a bit of product there because the surface is domed. I'll definitely repurchase. Finally, I do buy all sorts of brands, not just MAC, but every MAC fan knows their makeup costs can be labelled "investments" because of price and quality.
