MAC Mocha spells LOVE. My first MAC powder blush ever and still my favorite! My friend bought this and tried it on me and I loved it! She realized that it doesn't suit her so she sold it to me as I was also looking for a blush. Easy to apply and it gives me just the right amount of soft pink on my cheeks and it definitely matches my NC30 skin. If you look at it from its container, it looks drab and boring but don't be fooled because it really is a great color (at least for me). I always get compliments whenever I wear this blush. I swear that this will always be my favorite blush.

This was my very first MAC blush ever purchased and is my absolute favorite blush of all time! It gives such a neutral, healthy flush to my cheeks and is not too pink. Amazing!

This is my first MAC blush and I totally love it! It is my everyday blush..! It gives a really nice natural and healthy color to my cheeks which I adore because regularly I'm very pale to the point you think I'm sick or something!

This was the first MAC blush I ever bought and have kept this color in my rotation for about 10 years. It's a blue undertoned pinky mauve on my nc 30 - nc 35 skin tone. Just the right shade to give a subtle flush on days when I want a light application of color to liven up my skin. Definitely a highly recommended shade.

It is a lovely shade, natural and fresh. It really compliments my NC37 skin.
the bad thing is it doesn't last all day.

I am NC20 and this goes quite well on me. It is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. got to be light handed though, as too much of the product can make it go on splotchy instead and it is pretty hard to blend it out thereafter. it is a nice neutral healthy pink flush with brown base and it suits my yellow based skin. It holds ok well - i have oily skin, so about 4 hours, most of the blush is gone, and i would have to touch up thereafter. it still feels like my benefit sugarbomb one has a slightly longer staying power but the matte finish makes it easier to work with especially if you already have shimmery eyeshadow on. this was recommended to be by the SA. It is value for money since i have been using it for pretty long and have yet to hit pan. would love to explore other colours though!

This is a very beautiful rose berry blush very suitable for fall winter. Excellent pigmentation and the color on the cheeks is very amooth and natural. For my nw20 neutral face is so good and i enjoy it with every make up i go for.i totally recommend it guys.

This is a nice berry color for the fall/winter seasons. Looks great on my N18 skin. It is not powdery or patchy. Applies smoothly and highly pigmented. No frost or shimmer. Great matte shade.

I love this blush so much! I am quite fair, and I tend to look very washed out with only foundation on. However, this really warms up my complexion, and has a very natural mauvey colour. I would definetely recommend!

I bought this blush a while back and didn't think much of it at first. On my NC25 skintone it showed up as a standard neutral beige color, so I didn't get the all the hype. I expected to see at least some pink to it, but instead it looked sort of muddy to me. However, as summer neared and my skin got into the NC30-35 range, I tried it again. Wow, what a difference! On my tanned skin it very much looks like the rosey-pink-mauve that everyone raves about! So I guess this is one of those cameleon blushes that can look very different depending on your skin shade and undertones. I'm sure glad I gave it another shot! I might not reach for it in the winter months, but I will definitely save it for summer. :)

I love this blush so much! When I first saw it at the MAC counter, I thought; "Boy, what a boring color - who'd where that"? Well, I completely changed my mind the second time I went. I was debating between Pink Swoon (Which I used to have but somehow shattered when trying to depot it) and Mocha. I asked an MUA there which one would go better with my NC25 skin tone, and she suggested Mocha. I love this blush so much. It is not too out there, but it is not sheer either. It is the perfect blend of mature, sophisticated, and classy! On me, it looks like a warm, plummy-pink with slight peachy-brown undertones. Highly recommend for all skin tones. Not too cool nor too warm.

This is my HG blush. I love how this colour makes my cheeks look well defined, but still pretty, and flushed. It only takes a sweep onto the apples of my cheeks to make me look healthy, and alive.

First off, the name. What inspired MAC to name this blush mocha? Mocha to me implies things like cappuccino, chocolate and (the obvious) mocha. Make no mistake-this blush is MAUVE. I grew up in the 80s so I know (with deep regret I might add lol!) mauve. I actually DO really like the color of this blush. I was playing at the mall makeup counters and the MAC SA talked me into a makeover and this is one of the products I purchased (we won't even go there on the hideous electric pink, white and neon purple shadow she paired this with which I did not purchase). I am NW25 and when built up I can get a really nice wearable shade out of this. The size of the container is perfect. And that is pretty much where my praise of this blush stops. The packaging is meh. The texture borders on dryish. I need to build to get real color. so I am suspecting I could pan this blush on that alone before some of my others which are more pigmented. I think this blush is "ok" and I will continue to use it, but would not repurchase.

First of all- the name is very deceiving!
This is nowhere near what i imagine the colour should look like based on the name, which is a good thing in my case.
It's a matte, cool toned plum/pink.
On first application it's very light but you can build it up to a bit of a bolder colour if you like your blusher to be noticeable like i do.
I'm very happy with this shade, it's the perfect summery pink without looking too OTT.
Can be worn in the day and also built up to a more defining night time shade.

I usually buy brighter blushes (NARS Deep Throat, Angelika, Cactus Flower, Bobbi Brown Nectar, MAC Pink Swoon etc.) but lately my skin has changed a lot and a lot of these colors were starting to make me look feverish. I needed a blush to fill the neutral/demure gap in my collection (I own Chanel Rose Ecrin, a beigey, icy pink, but I didn't like the euro formula, which is baked and consequently hardens over time - I needed something which I wouldn't have to scrape and pile on to get the color I wanted).
I headed to MAC and asked my local MUA (if you're in Montreal, ask for Chris (ground floor) or Rene-David/RD (basement) at the Bay Downtown - they're both total sweethearts, and they're the reason why I'll go there and not to the other locations, even though I despise the Bay) to make me some suggestions. He picked out Tenderling, Well Dressed, Mocha and Blushbaby, and started testing them out on me with a 168 brush.
I liked all of them, but ended up coming home with Mocha - Tenderling was too subtle (maybe the lights were too strong or something - I remember this was my first MAC blush, and I loved it until I moved on to other things), Well Dressed was too sparkly (I wanted a soft matte for work/everyday), Blushbaby looked like it could be too muddy/brown if I wasn't too careful, but Mocha left me with sculpted, pretty cheeks - pinkish and healthy but definitely not too feverish. He topped it off with a little highlighter (the new Chen Man Beauty Powder) and it was definitely lovely.
The name Mocha is definitely a misnomer - the blush I ended up bringing home with me was clearly a soft pink with a tinge of plum and beige - nothing coffee-toned or brown here. On my NW/C20ish skin (fair to light neutral toned skin) it applies more pink-peach, as if I'm glowing. It's got quite a reputation on the internet, beloved by many paler girls such as myself (Delicate Hummingbird has a similar complexion from what I can tell - NC/W20ish) and more tanned ladies (e.g. Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog - NC 35/40ish). I wore it today to the office and it looked just as beautiful in natural lighting as it did when I looked at it indoors.
I apply this with a 168 as the MUA demonstrated, or with my ecotools blush brush (regular small domed blush brush), concentrating on the apples of my cheeks and blending upwards just before the cheekbones. It's rather firmly pressed (it's matte but not dusty when you take a brush to it), which works to its benefit - it's hard to go overboard and is pretty much goof-proof even for makeup novices. I top off the cheekbones and temples with a light highlight (I use Bobbi Brown Pink Shimmerbrick for this) applied with a 188 small skunk brush.
Great lasting power and no fading as far as I can tell - a great staple if you're looking for a neutral blush that won't leave you looking muddy or corpselike. Standard MAC blush packaging or refill pans; price point is right in the midrange of blush prices (more pricey than drugstore, cheaper than other prestige brands); decent quantity for the price.

I usually don't pay MAC prices for blush but I was buying a different product and the SA tried this on me and I was hooked. Perfect color for my pretty pale (NC20) complexion, with a lot of staying power. Since I'll probably have it for the next 10 years, I can live with the price. It reminds of Clinique's Black Honey lipstick in that it's probably a great shade for everyone.

This is a gorgeous matte "soft plum-pink" (according to the MAC website), and I couldn't describe it any better. I think this shade would look great on everyone (I'm not sure about dark skin shades, though). It looks gorgeous against my NC35 shade.
And when applied with the MAC 116 Blush Brush, this blush looks absolutely amazing!
It's very pigmented, and once applied and set, it lasts for hours!
I'm not a blush person--I only wear this blush on special occasions--so I don't need to buy another one considering this blush will last me for years.
The price of $20, although not the cheapest, is relatively reasonable as well. It's the typical price you'd expect for MAC, and other high-end cosmetic brands, actually.

I've been wearing this blush for ages...and I always end up back to it after I explore new colors. It's definitely one of my "go to" pieces in my collection. I can always be sure it will go with whatever eye or lip color(s) I am wearing. You can't go wrong with Mocha for all of the reasons stated by everyone else. It's simply perfect.

This blush definitely falls into the category of one MAC's unsung heroes. Mocha has been overshadowed by other popular shades in the MAC blush range. I went to MAC with the intention of purchasing Melba blush after reading many raves about it on MUA boards and blogs. However the SA at MAC suggested I try Mocha instead of Melba as it would compliment my skin a lot better as it has a pinky undertone as opposed to Melba which is peach.(for reference I am NC20 with neutral undertone) I tried Mocha and Melba on each side of my cheeks and was instantly blown away by the beauty of Mocha. I would describe it as a natural pinky brown which instantly lit up my face. Melba on the other hand looked very orange on my pale skin. Needless to say I picked up Mocha and have been wearing it every single day since I purchased it. Best of all it has a matte texture and does not irritate my super sensitive skin (no nasty rashes and breakouts). The closest blush to Mocha that I can think of currently is NARS Douceur or Bobbi Brown Desert Rose but their different enough that i felt the need to add Mocha to my stash.
