Love this blush! Looks super intimidating in the pan, but if applied VERY lightly it is just gorgeous! Also doubles as a rosey lip stain applied with your finger overtop lip balm!

About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
Fever has an ok formula, decent blendability. It definitely appears warm toned and brown red looking in the pan, but it works very well on my cool toned skin.
NARS Seduction has more shimmer, this is definitely an "almost matte" finish, slightly satin.
Seduction is beautiful. Blends like a dream. Flattering color. However, because I apply it so lightly, it tends to look similar to Fever on me. Except for the slight shimmer. So if I were to keep both blushes, the true difference would be in the finish. Not sure it's worth having 2 blushes when the only distinction will be the finish...
Fever is gorgeous on me too. Very flattering. I think I'm going to keep either Fever or Seduction, and I'm not sure if I'd rather keep the lovely sophicated matte finish of Fever but deal with the difficulties of blending that aren't there with Seduction.

I prefer a natural/fresh/no makeup look, so I have been fighting wearing blush for the longest. I needed some dimension to my face, and I knew that blush and contouring was the answer. Being darkskinned, I knew that a pink blush wasn't going to be for me. I saw this color and had to have it. It's very pigmented. Must apply very lightly. One quick stroke of a very good makeup brush, and that's enough. This is not a blush for work. This is not a blush for church. lol. Nighttime....date night....professional photos. Definitely a must try.

This blush is lovely, but be sure to apply it VERY lightly or you will end up looking like a clown. I can see this lasting for years and years :) Probably I'll repurchase, even though I am not sure!

my HG blush!
Fever is a VERY pigmented dark matte burgundy. On my cheeks (NC35), it goes on as a beautiful wine color that gives me a "healthy" look and perfectly replicates my natural flush after I've been in the cold or worked out. It's extremely flattering and I find I reach for this blush the most! If you're on the paler side, be sure to use a VERY light hand. The price is perfect for this blush since you will only need to use very little each time. I literally just touch my MAC 188 onto the pan for each cheek and it gives me the perfect hint of blush. Love it!

whoa, this is pigmented. I knew I was asking for trouble going with a blush called fever .Its just so pigmented that its so hard to work with, I just wish it was more sheer so i could build it up. I wanted to go for the sexy, intense flushed look but I find myself so nervous with this blush because it can go clown-town very very fast. I really don't get why they made it that pigmented TBH. And yes, it does make me look like I'm having a fever , no matter how little I put on. I can't really fault mac for it because it is called 'fever' so what do u expect . NC43 for reference.

For me this is the only blush that stays put during the entire day. It's also extremely pigmented so you only need a light brush stroke on each cheek.

I am NC20 in the winter and right now I'm somewhere between that and NC30, I love this blush. I've always been drawn to bright, vivid or dark blushes even tho I am fair. This one fits right into that category since it's a dark bergundy matte color. I tap a large powder brush into the pan 1 time, followed by a tap on the back of my hand. I then apply and blend. I have no issues with blending and it really does give a great flush to the cheeks. It can look like you really do have a fever if applied too dark. I find this specific color doesn't resemble anything else I have, so yes I would def repurchase if I ever run out.

This was my very first MAC blush, and I still love it as much as I did when I first got it. It looks a little scary in the pan, but with a light hand and buffing, it gives a lovely flushed cheek. I love this blush for fall and winter. Goes well with my NC42 toned skin.

I just recently bought this blush and was considering purchasing a second as a backup. Then I realized it's so amazingly pigmented I doubt I'l; ever make it through the whole pan, much less a backup! I literally tap the end bristles of my brush into the pan ONCE. LIGHTLY. And that picks up enough for me to apply a good amount that shows up well on my NC42 skin.
I totally fell in love with it, and it's a great addition. A perfect Winter/Fall color, in my opinion. I wouldn't wear it for an everyday look all the time, because I lean more towards the peaches for a daytime look - but this is absolutely PERFECT for night time.

It's official...I hate mac blushes. Am I the only one who finds them impossible to blend?? I keep trying them and I am continuously disappointed. I will stick with my al time favorites, Nars and Clinique.

Now now now! Fair-skinned girls sit up! You CAN work this blush. Fancy a winter just got in from the cold flush? This is it.
Don't turn away from how crazy dark this looks in the pan. Because the deeper a blush, the more natural it appears on skin like a true rush of blood, AS LONG AS you apply it correctly.
I'm a fair NC25, i already own and love Fever's more cheerful, brighter sister Frankly Scarlet, a red raspberry. I wanted something more "autumn/winter" that would go with my wine/cranberry lipsticks and i'm glad that i've found it in Fever. Sometimes Frankly would be a little too bright for my mood, so Fever is perfect when you want a natural flush without looking too saturated in the gamma levels (sorry for jargons, occupational hazard of a graphic designer). Frankly Scarlet imparts a younger, cheekier kind of flush which i do love as well, but Fever just makes me feel a little more grown-up and sophisticated, but still cute.
So how do we use this? One day i was enlightened when i wasn't wearing any makeup and found out my natural flush was the area of my cheeks right beside my nose. This was when i got in from the cold. I know it's the convention to go all the way up the cheekbones close to the ears but frankly you can't do that with a pigmented blush without looking like a clown or a relic from the 80's, not at least when you want your flush to look believable.
Next, use a FAN brush (if you're a newcomer to pigmented blushes because this kind of brush has looser bristles which won't pickup too much pigment) but for my case a normal blush brush works as long as you continue reading my tips. Tap a coupla times onto the pan. DO NOT apply directly to face after tapping on the pan. Swipe off the excess at the back of your hand a coupla times, THEN swipe or tap lightly onto cheeks of said area. Build up until desired.
Believe me, your pale pink or peachy blushes will never give you that elusive Snow White flush.. deeper blushes will. Hey, they resemble blood, which is what makes us flush naturally! And MAC makes them so perfectly as their powder is very finely-milled and sheer.

Good color but maybe it's a 'soft' color but you need to have a light hand in my opinion. But really great color on me (NW45). xx

Others have described this as deep red wine and I would have to agree. Extremely pigmented, a little goes a long way. A skunk brush would be perfect for applying this. Awesome shade for women of color.

With a lighter hand, even fairer skinned girls can wear this! In fact, this is the most natural looking flush I've ever gotten from a blush. Definitely worth trying even if it looks somewhat scary in the pot - just use a light hand and you just might be as pleasantly suprised as I was!

My first blush that sent me on the trail of being a blush feen. Really like it adds a nice hue to the cheeks. Really nice on dark skin adds a real looking wash of color to the cheeks. The consistency is easy to blend and apply.

Another pigment blasting shade every artist should have! Incredibly WOC friendly of course. Use just a touch or you'll be a street walking harlot lol
This a medium red berry wine!

I'm not a big fan of Mac blushes. I've tried several of them, but ended up returning them all. There is just something about their consistency that has kept me from joining the cult of Mac blush lovers. Fever is the only Mac blush that I still have in my collection. It is a deep plum color that gives my cheeks a very bold pop. I really like this for going out at night because it shows up well in pictures. The pigmentation is great and the color just suits my NW 50 skin so well. This is an excellent blush. I highly recommend it.
