I became obsessed with this blush after watching a YouTube video and seeing how great it looked. I already owned 'Her blooming cheek' (limited edition from the Tartan Tale collection) which is a powder, but don't use it that often since it's really hard for me to have a light hand with such a pigmented blush.
I'm a NC25 (unless I'm tanned) and this gives me a really bright flushed cheeks. If you're having one of those days when your face just looks tired and dull, this will instantly transform it. Since it's really pigmented a little goes a long way. I apply it with my middle finger and blend it with clean middle and ring fingers. If I need extra blending I find using a Mac 188 or similar brush around the edges it's really helpful. It's matte which is a major plus.
Since I have oily skin, some powders don't last on my skin all day, but this one has amazing staying powder. I haven't tried any other Cremeblend blushes, but I'm definitely tempted to try some other colors since the formula works so great on my skin.
I would stock up on this one if they re-release it!

In the pan, it looks like a terrifying, greasy magenta pink. Once on, it is the perfect soft-but-vibrant flush of pink, very believable on my NC15 warm-undertoned skin. I think it would look great on warm, cool or neutral skin. Pros: the color! And it really lasts! Much longer than any other Mac blushes I own, which usually have no staying power on my dry skin. Cons: 1) VERY hard to blend, so much so that I feel this is not a good product for dry skin. It can look really streaky. 2) hard to find - it was LE and you can only get it on ebay now. 3) Spendy! But overall I think it's gorgeous. I love it and will be tracking down a backup.

This cream blush is moisturising and pigmented! Wow! I have been trying so many high end brand cream blushes and my cheeks feel so dry after using it (like cheek stains).
I am impressed. This does not dry out my cheeks. The colour looks good on warm skin tones too.
Its my current fav. And this will last me for ages.

When the MUA at MAC first applied this shade onto my cheeks, she put on so much that I looked like a clown. I almost did not purchase it because she made me look ridiculous, but I am SO GLAD that I bought it anyways. I am currently an NC40-42 and this shade is GORGEOUS on the cheeks. When applied with a very, very light hand, it brightens my complexion like no other blush that I own. Unlike other cream blushes, the Cremeblend formula does not have a dewy finish. It has a matte finish that looks more like a cheek stain. If I do want more of a sheen though, I like to pair this blush with MAC's MSF in Petticoat dusted lightly on top (gorgeous combo!) If you are able to purchase this shade (it is limited edition), please do (especially if you have Olive/Tan skin) because it is an amazing shade that lasts the entire day.

At first glance I thought "no way" - this color is so bright I would look like Bette Davis in Baby Jane but surprise! when blended out and used moderately it gives a beautiful bright blush to the cheeks. I am a firm believer in color on the cheeks - it makes one look younger and more healthy. However, too much can be a bad thing so to get that with this bright color I take a dab of it and spread it across the back of my hand, blending it out to get a more faint version, then I run it just along the top of any contour I have applied to my cheeks. Very pretty!

This is such a pretty color for blush! Its a bright almost neon cool toned pink in the pan, but when blended, is a very natural pretty blush on the cheeks. I bought both this one and Optimistic Orange, these are the first MAC creme blushes I have tried. These are very creamy and blendable, and wear a long time when set with powder.I usually apply lthese with a 188 brush.

This is my favorite of all the cremeblend blushes. It is sold out everywhere I looked but luckily I scored one on Bonanza.com. The color is bright pink/fuschia but on my skin it just looks like a really youthful flush. Blends easily too and does not break me out.

Bought this over the weekend at CCO for only like $13 or $14, Very good purchase - even better than I had expected. Great application, beautiful pink color. Not scary bright as it looks in the pan. Reminds me of Bobbi Brown's creme blushes in terms of quality and application - but a lot less expensive at CCO. Really glad I picked one of these up.

I like this blush a lot. I've never tried cream blushes before, so this was like an experiment to me.
I thought that it would be very oily but it was actually very very dry so once you apply it you have to blend very fast! also, since the color is very pigmented I found less is more, or else I would have a really hard time blending it.
However it looks very natural and gives my skin a very fresh and natural look, so I recomend it!

i think the color is beautiful on my nw 25 skin, but the fomulation is not my favorite because it's not really creamy and it smears and kind of takes off anything i had on under it. ive been using my fingers, mac 109, flat top, and the eco tools blush brush. perhaps a stippling brush would work best. when i can figure out how to use this, i think i would like it a lot more.
EDIT: ive been using this right after my tinted moisturizer. i dot set my tinted moisturizer with powder or this blush! just cream on top of cream, which is best. i apply with my fingers, and it looks beautiful! im scared im going to run out now! ): when i do, i have to run to cco's and find this!!!!!

Another great product from MAC! this and optimistic orange creamblend blushes are my current faves, I reach for these almost every day. florida is super neon pink in pan, but it blends like a dream, to a dewy, non powdery, nongreasy , light pink just right finish on my NC 40 cheeks..it is super pigmented, so a lil goes a long way. I like to top it with either petticoat MSF or shell pearl beauty powder, perfect pink glowing cheeks that lasts all day..hoping MAC will release them with more colours..will def repurchase and highly recommend!

I bought this due to the reviews here. TY fellow MUAers for mentioning that this is a new formula. I love the texture of this new creme blush, not sticky at all and just glides on. The color is perfect for summer, and will last many summers as you do not need much if you are as fair as myself. I use a foundation brush and just swirl on the apples of my cheeks and top it off with blonde MSF.

I'm totally in love with Mac's new formula for their cremeblend blushes. The old formula somehow reminded me of creamy play-doh but this new formula is super smooth and creamy.
Initial swatches online looked hot pink and scary but once blended out, its subtle and dreamy. One or two swipes per cheek is more than enough to achieve that flushed dolly look. More than 2 swipes might result in the scary clown look. I would suggest using a small stippling brush to apply and blend this out and do it quickly before the formula dries on your cheeks.
-Very creamy formula thats easy to blend.
-Multipurpose use on eyes, lips, and cheeks
-No fading. It lasts throughout the whole day.
-Must use caution when applying to avoid rocking the 'Clown Face' look.
-Limited Edition and hard to find.

Love the cremeblend formula--like a cream to powder formulation. Blends flawlessless into the skin with minimal effort. I do prefer so sweet so easy but this is an awesome blush to have. It is a bright cool toned pink in the pan but is very sheer when brushed and swirled onto cheeks. It is very buildable: watch out but is very suiting to prob most complexions. It catches far less lint than my so sweet so easy, but again I don't use as much. Very fuschia but very very pretty!

LOVE this blush. Give sme the perfect flush, looks really scary but it isnt at all. it blends like a dream. I love to pair with MAC's Azaela blush for a slightly strong cheek on days when I want to look dollish

This blush is amazing, particularly since it looks so unbelievably unwearable in the pan. I am pretty fair, with neutral skin that leans more to cool, but does have a slightly sallow tone. I am not a blush hound, but I've tried a lot of different brands: NARS, MAC, Tarte, Stila, Lancome, etc. As far as pink matte blushes go, nothing--but nothing--beats this blush. I gave up on NARS's Mata Hari because I could never get it to work--it looked chalky and the pink was not the baby doll color I wanted. I was dying to try the new Cremeblend formula from MAC, but the only two colors they had available seemed too much for my skin tone. Still, I ordered Florida sight unseen (smart).
Well, Florida is a cool pink miracle. First of all, the formula on the Cremeblends is amazing--light and smooth and not at all tacky like MAC's other creme blushes (which I never could get to work on me). I used a 188 at first since the color was so bright, but the blush didn't really pop until I used my fingers and smoothed it around and out. There really aren't any warm tones in this pink blush, and I guess that's what I needed all along, because I look amazing in Florida--and I'm not amazing looking. But the blush is just beautiful. I tried it as a lipstick too, since you can, and it was pretty--if really slippy.

This is a gorgeous creme blush not to be afraid of! Just use the mac 188 and you can blend it lightly and it looks no where near as unwearable and boldly vibrant as it does in the pan. I have all four of them from the collection and do not regret getting them!

Darker ladies do not be afraid! I am NW45 and this is the pink that I have been looking for, it does not get gray or flat. I'm not a huge fan of cream blushes but the texture of this blush blew me away. It is light and does not cause excessive shine on my combo/oily skin.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Ive never been a cream blush fan! I tried this because I was curious about how the colors would look on. I find if you stiple it on with the 188 gently, and dust By Candlelight or a similar MSF on top, it's GORGEOUS!!
Gives skin a fresh out of the cold, pinkey glow within look. Now Im a huge fan of these, and want/need more cream blushes in my life!!

Florida is my 2nd Cremeblend blush. I purchased it after trying So Sweet, So Easy. I am NW15, and am addicted to bright pink blushes. I have to admit, when I first put this on, I was scared. It is VERY bright. I applied with my fingers, and blended, and then buffed my cheeks with a kabuki brush. The end result is a "just in from the cold" look. It isn't harsh at all... very fresh looking. I really love these blushes, despite having acne prone skin, and after buying my first 2, plan to go back for the other 2 shades.
