This blush definately doesn't get enough credit. I have very light skin and this blush looked great! It's a nice darkish pink color. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't stay on long unless I put one of the Mac creme colored bases on first..Hush is my favorite. Overall great product.
I would have never in a million years thought this blush would work on my dark tanned skintone. I'm around NC45-50 and have worn Gingerly blush forever but it had a tendency to turn very orangy as the day wore. I also looooved NARS Deep Throat, but I found that throughout the day, the shimmer in DT would become extremely overwhelming.
It wasn't until I saw a gorgeous youtuber who was around my same skintone, rave about this blush. She also had the same issues with DT.
In any case, I'm sooo happy I got this. This blush is perfect, gives a very nice subtle "flush", noticeable, but not overwhelming. There is no shimmer, at least not huge particles of it. I also love that I can mix this blush with any other blush (currently mixing it with Breezy) and/or bronzer and it enhances it beautifully.
I highly recommend this!
This is probably the best blush formula MAC has to offer i.e. 'Sheertone' (it isn't as dusty as the Matte formulas). Pinch Me reminds of coppertone a bit because of it's deep peachy-ness, however this has more of a pinkish tinge. It is so beautiful on Darker tones esp. when it is worn over BB Calypso Coral pot rouge; it does wear really nicely on it's own too and doesn't take much to show up. Glowy peachy juicy merriment! Will repurchase! I apply this with my MAC 116.
For reference, I wear N35 studio fix foundation. Firstly, want to say that this blush is PERFECT for us medium-toned girls. It has a natural flush-looking colour that has great build-ability. It is a beautiful pink and peach tone. Definitely will continue to use this and buy again. TRUST ME, this is coming from someone who has been looking for the perfect blush for ages!
A beautiful medium coral rose on my NC15 skin. It looks very natural without the burn look. The sheertone formula is just perfect because you can build it. I love pairing this with Hot Tahiti lipstick. This blush lasts on me the whole day. I will always have this in my collection. Holy Grail!
For Reference I'm a NC40 - NC44 OMG I LOVE THIS BLUSH!! I got mine at my local CCO therefore it was $12.50. When I saw it I wasn't all that into it because it looked so dark. But it was the best one there so I got it. Once I put it on I FELL IN LOVE with it. It's like a dusty rose color. It looks so natural on me. I just sweep it on my cheeks once and it is so pigmented. I get so many compliments on this blush. I use it almost every day! If I ran out of it I would definitely repurchase this without a doubt.
Wonderful Blush. Great Sheer Corally Pink...I really like it. It doesn't have shimmer which made me prefer this over BeneFit's Coralista. Again it's a nice one to have.
Finally, a nice color that shows up on my coloring (NC35)! Tried a whole bunch, almost went with Peachykeen but that one was too shimmery for my taste. This one's nice and matte, and a little darker than Peachykeen. It looks fresh on my face, like the inside of a peach or an apricot, if that makes sense. If you're a darker toned beauty, you must at least swatch this.
ALSO: This color & NARS Amour are almost IDENTICAL. Amour is a tad darker/deeper. I prefer this one.
We went to the MAC counter the other day, just to let my mom pick out some colors for herself. She bought this blush and some other stuff. When we got home I had to try it out on myself- I've been looking for a matte blush thats on the warmer peachy side, if it looked good on me I was gonna go out and get it too. It didnt suit me good at all. I'm a NC20 and on my light yellow toned skin it looked like I was burned from being out in the sun or like I had sprayed on a really bad fake tan but only on my cheeks and the rest of my face looked normal colored. It looks really good on my mom whos a little bit darker than myself but deffinitly not for me. Still looking for that peachy blush...
I love this blush! I have cool toned medium skin and this looks so beautiful on me. It is a warmer color but doesn't look fake or clownish on me. It is very pigmented, not shimmery and gives my skin a healthy rosy/coral flush. I would definitely buy this one again!
