Like the last post said, you have to use it with a light hand.. but when you do it's very complimentary. I will buy again.
My niece gave it to me and I'm not sure why she didn't want it anymore. But on me the color is way to strong, maybe that's why she didn't like it. It is a deep plum/berry that shows up dark. I have to use very little or else I end up looking like I'm trying way too hard to look made up. I don't reach for this often but when I do, I have to be careful to use a light hand when applying it.
SO, this was my HG blush, but now it has moved to Gingerly and Pink Swoon. Gingerly just looks more natural on me then Pinch Me. But, I do see myself getting Pinch Me sometime again in the future.
The thing is when I go out, I love to do my eyemakeup dramatic, and Pinch Me can sometimes be an overpowering color, and then I look like I have too much makeup on. That's why I like Gingerly and Pink Swoon, because it is less intense so my eye makeup pops.
This color is absolutely gorgeous! I apply it lightly on my cheeks with my 188 brush and it looks fab. I love how it looks so natural and works with most of my makeup looks :)
What a lovely blush...! I just swapped for it and when I first saw it, I was immediately in love...! I'm in my mid 20's and I don't think I'm suitable for bright coral/pink blushes anymore, and this blush is not that bright, it's medium rose which flutters my NC25 skintone. And it goes on so smooth and won't accentuate my acne. I think it would work beautifully on most skintones therefore I highly recommend it...!
I have light to med skin around NC25 and i just cant get this blush to look subtle. The colour is really lovely a nice healthy berry colour but even with the lightest gentlest application, this blush still comes on too strong for me and its the first thing that jumps out at me when i look at myself in the mirror - even from a distance. I like to see my blush but this is too much for me!
For darker skin tones I think this colour would be superb and the bonus is that you'd only use a tiny amount as it has excellent colour payoff. But alas, its too dark for me.
I really like this blush. I use this as a everyday blush. I am an NC50 and this looks really good on me.
Once again, MAC Sheertone blushes just rock! I was looking for something to give me a pop of colour on my cheeks, and the MA at MAC suggested Pinch Me. At first, the colour looked pretty vibrant and scared me a bit. But once applied, I loved the finished result: a fresh, sheer berry wash of colour that brightened my face. It kinda imitates that flushed look you get when you've been walking in the cold outdoors! Looks great when I wear it with my Hot Tahiti lipstick, which the MA also suggested when I purchased Pinch Me. Would definitely repurchase.
This blush just doesn't thrill me, AT ALL. I have had this for about 5 months now and I have used it MABYE 6 times, if that. I never reach for this where as with all my other blushes I just can't pick which one I want to wear because I love them all. It goes on too red for my NC30 skintone, I feel like it looks out of place. I got this when I want to do a more natural look because almost all my other blushes have shimmer, but it isn't even good for that! I wish I would have got something else....oh well live and learn. Up for swap this goes.....
Believe it or not, this was a nice shade on my fair, yellow-toned skin. This surprised me because I was duped into buying it by a MAC MUA who didn't try it on my and who, in hindsight, was just after the sale. I can't believe he's still there. Anyway, Pinch Me works for my complexion, unlike the other product he sold me. Just make sure to use a fluffier brush, blow on it and use a light hand so that you don't put too much color in one spot.
