I've been using this blush in my regular rotation for almost a year now and I can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet!

I purchased this blush with Prism as I used to use Tenderling and when I went in to MAC they didn't have it anymore (NOTE: not totally sure if it's discontinued just my MAC store didn't have it anymore). The SA suggested a few different blushes which are similar to Tenderling, and then she also suggested this one just because of my skin tone and the fact that I sometimes want something with a little bit more to it - I'm at MAC so often they actually know how I do my make up and the products I tend to lean towards :|

Anyways, I loved this blush the very first time I used it. It is a frost blush, so don't over do it in any way. But I use it and then finish with Fix + and it makes my skin look dewy and naturally healthy pretty much all day long. It doesn't cause any issues for my skin, doesn't look completely fake either. It's a great colour for those of us who are really pale/fair and want some colour without looking like we put a blob of pink on our faces. It blends really nicely with the products I use on my face. I used to use Mineralized Skin Finish, but have since switched to the MAC Studio Fix Powder + Foundation (I forget the exact name of it, sorry) as my powder, and still use Studio Fix Fluid or Studio Sculpt as my foundation. I find this blush blends better with my new powder than it did with the mineralized skin finish, but that might just be me. I would definitely suggest this blush in your regular rotation if you have very fair skin with cool undertones. I don't know how it would look with warmer skin tones or for those of you who have a little darker skin tones (and as a reference: I have naturally very dark brown hair, almost black; before I lightened it I could have been snow white if I put on red lipstick. I am very pale).

Overall, fantastic blush! I hope they don't discontinue this one but if they do perhaps it would be another opportunity for me to discover another one of MAC's hidden gems.

I recently purchased this product and after a few days of using it, I think I have stumbled upon another holy-grail product. First of all, let's talk about the pigmentation: it's highly pigmentated - which I absolutely love - which means a tiny bit will definately go a long way and it will last for a longer period. Furthermore, the shade of this blush is to die for. It's a bronzed-peach which has a sheen; it gives the most delightful glow. It also stays on the skin for a longer time which is good for me as I would rather not touch up during the day. Finally, the formulation of the product is outstanding; it has such a creamy - velvet - formulation which makes me so happy.

Ultimately, this MAC blush is a forever treasure. If it ever gets discontinued, I'll actually cry.

I really like this blush, it's extremely pigmented and as its a frost, it makes your cheeks glow. I do notice fine shimmer so if you don't like that, I recommend you try this one out first before purchasing. Price was not too back considering i bought the pro pan version for my palette. Overall, it's a lovely natural colour that's universal and will give a healthy glow

I am an NW15-20. I like to engage in MAC's online chat from time to time (okay, all the time), though some artists are more helpful/have better suggestions than others. One artist told me NOT to buy Margin, even though I really wanted it. He said to go with the blush Style--that Margin was too dark for me. I may ultimately also buy Style, but I am glad that he was wrong about Margin. I would describe Margin is a vivid terracotta/apricot color. It is a frost, but that shouldn't scare anyone away, in my opinion. Because unlike, for example, NARS Orgasm, which is a corally pink with yellow gold shimmer, the shimmer in Margin is the same color as the blush. Thus making it look glowy, not frosty or sparkly. It is beautiful. Period. I apply it with the MAC 168 brush, and even if I use numerous swipes, it isn't too dark on me. And as I wear it, it looks better and better, and it lasts all day.

Love this blush! I'm NC10-15 and this is perfect everyday blush for me to warm up my compection and bring some healthy glow to my face that lasts all day. I don't think it's too shimmery, but I'm a bit more careful with my highlighter when I put this on my cheeks. Definitely recommend to check this one out!

Amazing MAC frost blush, makes my skin so shiny and radiant!
Pretty boring on the pan but give it a try!
Looks very nice paired with summer bronzed look or even with smokey eyes- versatile product !

This is my favorite summer blush!! I've had it for a long time and always pull it out around this time. It gives you the perfect peach glow, not glittery, just shimmer. Goes with any eye look, or light makeup.
For reference I'm about NC25 (hate MAC fdnt).

A nice medium colour blush. It's a little peachy, a little shimmery but not super pigmented. I hate the contouring blush trend, I just want one colour and blend and call it done and this works perfectly for me.

this is a peachy, shimmery blush (shimmery not glittery. big difference ) I love this blush. it goes with every look. it's very natural looking too. it gives your cheeks a nice glow bc of the shimmer it. I can wear it with any look. repurchased this twice. I just always like to have in my collection. I like that you can't really over do it with this blush bc I can get a little blush happy haha. I can usually wear on its own when I'm in a hurry and have no foundation on. it's just always been a favorite of mine. I first got it around age 15 when I went to the mac store and the SA recommend it to me. been a favorite of mine ever since. highly recommend this to people. and it looks good on most skintones

I've had this for years and didn't love it, until I read the reviews. so I pulled it out again and now it's my HG. Subtle glow that makes you look lit from within. Really nice!
