Im giving this 3 lippies only because it is a pretty color and I own about 15 other Mac blushes and have been very pleased with them.
Pinch Me on my fair/cool compexion just did not work, there was something about it that just did not look right, Im assuming it's due to the slight brown tones in it. Melba, Peachykeen,Springsheen among some are much better choices for me. I can see this blush flatter medium to dark complexions with warm undertones. For the winter months I reach for Plum Foolery, Dame and Well Dressed and when I want something toned down (I love bright blushes) I reach for Cubic or Mocha.
I was so very disappointed when i received this in the mail. It looks like a very dark reddish brown. I thought it would be way to dark on my cool NC30 skin with yellow undertones. How wrong I was... It turns out beautifully. Absolutely no sparkle in it which I love, as it makes you look so natural and pretty, like you're actually blushing.
It turns out rosey pink on my skin, a very natural looking blush. Now, a word of warning.... an extremely light hand is needed when applying this. When i apply, i dab my duo fibre brush into it once.. just a tiny dab, I dont swirl or anything. Just one dab then onto my cheeks. If i think I've dabbed too heavy ill press on the back of my hand first before putting it on. A little bit of this goes a long way.. it can be very easy to over apply and you'll end up looking like a clown.
Overall, this is such a beautiful blush. The only other blush I've used is NARS orgasm, which I dont even use anymore since I've got this. I just look and feel so pretty once i put this on.
I was looking for a new blush to pair with red, coral, and berry lipsticks and a MAC artist recommended this shade. Looks very bold in the pan, but absolutely works for my fair complexion. Extremely pigmented so a very light hand is required to avoid looking sunburned. The colour is a lovely rosy colour with a matte finish.
What can I say, the packaging is just totaly awful! The plastic lid falls of all the time, otherwise I think it's a great blush if you are some sort of NC, I'm a NW 25 and this is too redish-coloured for me in the winter since my face and lips turn really red. But in the summer with a glowing tan it's perfect, especially with a hint of shimmer on top (for example Bobbi Brown shimmerbrick)
I love this blush. This and NARS orgasm are my go-to blushes! Perfect color for me.. It looks reddish in the pan but actually comes out to be (on my skin) a coral rosey peachy kind of color. It really brings my face to life. I prefer this blush in fall/winter more so than summer. This stuff lasts forever so the price is great considering I have had mine for over a year and have yet to hit the pan so when I do will def repurchase! :)
I am brown person. My skin goes from wheatish to dark depending on how much I exposed to sun. Pinch me is gorgeous shade. I have always been a pink blush fan. But this one was more like a gamble. when i went to mac store and saw like blush palletes .. I couldnt choose. But I wanted to experiment and the salesperson at mac recommended me pinch me. It looks like bloody dark peach. Hestitant at start i changed my mind when i applied it ...when you apply it gives you gorgeous brown cum peach shade. Its worked so great with my skin. I love this blush cause it has efficiency of looking diff. It can look burnt orange to pale peach depending on application. I use this one when i am going to work . A slight dab on cheeks and have lovely gorgeous hues of warm orange color on it,
Do try this one. My friend has shimmer peach and it looks too glittery for daily wear.
A light hand is required with the blush, but for me it really does provide a just-blushed color. Works for me in all seasons and goes well with lips in the red family.
Great blush! I have fair skin and I love this blush. It's coloring is exactly what I,ve wanted: not pink, not orange, not red and not brown, but a combination of all of the above. Makes me look blushed but not with makeup on if applied in light-hand (can easily become a blush-overload). I used it with the MAC 129 SH brush, and both are keepers.
A mid to dark toned rosey color and one the 'must haves' of your blush collection. This one truly gives the 'just in from the biting cold' look. I love MAC Sheertones b/c of their buildability but this one is one the more pigmented ones. Not an HG or an all year blush for me b/c it doesn't look the most natural on my NC 30/35 Asian skintone. Would prefer to use this more for the winter time, but a nice add to my blush addiction.
I really like this blush. Its a nice dark peachy pink color. It looks really natural on my tan skin and I like that it is a nice matte color. Its one of those dark blushes that don't really make you look like you have rosacea (but that also depends on how you apply it :) ). HOWEVER, it oxidizes and makes me a lot darker than I actually am, which is kinda bad because my foundation oxidizes as well and so my face and neck look unproportional with my chest at times :/
