I love this for cream contouring. I don't really get the hint of pink-peach mentioned in some of the reviews and think it leans more towards brown but it's a fantastic contour for medium/medium tan skin tones. It goes on easily and lasts about forever.
I'm only not buying it again because I don't think I'll run out since I usually don't use cream contours.

I have a lot of natural pink/peach in my cheeks so am looking for something to even it out and make me look dewy. On me this is a peach/beige with the slightest hint of pink...enough so that it plays well with my cool coloring and doesn't look orange or muddy. It does not wear great. I notice that I need a touch up after 4 hours or so. The dewiness doesn't last either, but the upside of that is that it never feels sticky.

I have never been a big fan of blush at all, always looking for the perfect consistency or shade but failing, so trying out this was one of the biggest impulse buys of my life. Honestly, I have never looked back on spending £16.50 on a single product.
This gives the most natural, yet beautiful glow to cheeks that I have ever seen on a person! Something to note: I am N20 (I can wear both NW & NC shades) in MAC terms, and it's absolutely perfect for me. Any darker than... approximately N30/35 and I don't think it would flatter the skintone so well.
The consistency looks as if it would be thick, but it can be applied thinly with no effort and blends like a dream for a cream blush (trust me, I've looked around and MAC is currently the best brand for this type of product).
I use either my fingers to apply, or a stippling brush, which gives you great control on opacity and blending.
I really, really recommend this if you are fair to medium skintoned, and it's such a fantastic product that I'm willing to experiment with other shades.

I do not like this product at all. I am very tanned, NC42 and when I put this on my cheeks it almost looks grey. I think it would look wonderful on lighter complexions, but more tanned skin, I think not.

Uncommon is a pretty neutral color that is understated, but sexy. It looks simple and natural. It doesn't scream pink, brown, or red, but still gives a nice and dewy glow. I love that I can use it alone or under a light blush as a base. Even though it looks pale in the pan, you have to try it and see the color under natural lighting.

I am on a bit of a blush kick right now and just got this one in today. had to try it right away. it's nice but i am still getting the hang of creme formulas. on me it is very neutral creamy taupe with a touch of rose. nice but not natural looking. i look like i am wearing a lot of makeup and i haven't even done my eyes yet. i tried to use the tiniest bit but on my pale complexion it really shows up. not necessarily a bad thing. very pigmented and creamy (read:easy to blend) will definitely keep using ...maybe even less next time.

Don't be fooled by how drab this blush looks in the pan. It looks beautiful on, natural and dewy, especially if you have skin that's more on the dry side like me. I have yellow undertones, NC25, so this color is a perfect match, but it looks so natural on, a peachy soft glow, that it would probably work for other skin tones as well. My only qualm with this blush is that after having it for a while, the plastic top came off, so it has dried out a little bit. It's lasted a long time though, despite the lid coming off and is still one of my favorite blushes.

I love this blush. I thought the MA at the store was nuts when she tried it on me cos I thought it wouldn't show up as anything but it gives the perfect flush. I use it on days that I don't want anyone to know i'm wearing cheek colour and it really does look just that natural. I was so annoyed when I found out this was LE and it's too late to even buy a spare!
My only frustration with this is that when I'm wearing my clinique foundation that's more pink toned than my regular foundation it looks Orange. But i blame that more on the foundation than the blush. I'm now looking for a powder version of this blush for summer... that's how much I love it. If your local MAC still has this and you have fair skin GO OUT AND GET IT NOW!

Uncommon is for sure the best cream blush I own. I bought it on a whim last month, I saw the product open at a Mac counter and immediately thought it would be really nice to have one in my beauty bag. Even if it looks a bit dark and thick in the pan, Uncommon goes on smooth and really lightens my cheekbones.
I still don't know if I prefer cream textures over powder ones, but this blush was an AMAZING addition to my collection so I highly recommend it, especially if you’re looking for a natural, fresh, visible but not too heavy coverage.

I swapped away all the Blushcremes (except for Sweet William) I got in the past. All had something 'off' with them. Some of them turned into a different color on my face. Some of them didn't suit me well. Uncommon is a keeper though. It's a nice, natural looking color: a peachy tannish-nude. I love it alone and it's also good as a base for bronzers or other nudish/neutral blushes. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Summer Tan is my HG but I would repurchase this one as well. (NW20 for reference).

This is a really lovely colour. Unfortunately, the texture and application let it down. It's quite sticky and thick and I had to work it a bit to make sure it all blended out properly. This is not as good as Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge blushes in terms of ease of application, blendability or staying power.

i loooooove mac blushcremes! i'm never going back to powder blushes again. when the MA showed me this product at frist i thought the color looked realy dull and boring in the pan then she insisted i try the product and i'm soo glad she did because afterwards i looked so fresh and i had this amazing glow. since then i am hooked and i own about five of them and i 'm addicted and i want more! this one was my first blushcreme and its my favorite out of the four i own. i have blossoming, sweet william (another fav), lilicent, fancy ray. loove them so much! the color itself is like a tan, peachy color on my c4 skin

I actually didn't buy this, just tried it on in the store. I almost bought it site unseen on the MAC website based on the great reviews on MUA, which usually never steers me wrong. I am so glad I tried it in store first, because it really was very blah. It looks blah in the pan and it is blah on my skin. I can only see this appealing to someone who really is a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Or possibly it does more for someone with a different skintone. Mine for reference is NC20. Anyway, the color is basically light brown and disappeared into my skin after about 20 minutes. If I want the "I'm not wearing any blush" look, I'll just not wear blush. Texture is good, though, as with all Blushcremes, in my opinion.

I generally don't write reviews unless I'm very happy with a product. I decided to write this sorta negative review because I am so surprised at the color of this blush. MAC describes it as a "light, white rose" - huh?? The color couldn't be further from rose - it is an exact match for cinnamon, coffee with cream, or caramel. I generally disagree that products should get negative reviews because the reviewer doesn't like the color, but MAC is way, way off on the description of this blush. I'm sure it is wonderful for warm skin tones, but for you cool-toned gals, stay far, far away from Uncommon.

I have to spoil the excellent rating for this product, as it has proven to be a dissapointment for me.
Colourwise, although not as unappealing as it appears in the pot, it still comes as light brown-yellowish to my fair/neutral to warm skin.
Texture is a major pain for me. First time I put it on, it took me ten minutes to apply it evenly and get a decent look. This is a huge downside for me, as I can't spare more that 15 minutes for my usual make up routine. So, it is much inferior to BB pots that I can easily apply even without a mirror!
Packaging sucks! The glass top got detached from the plastic container in less that one month.
Anyway, I am still struggling with it. Today I have worn it as a base with Light Flush on top and I have to say that it does not look too bad.

A really nice and unusual color. Looks truly brownish beige in the pot but goes on with a bit of pink. Really neutral for gentle contouring & color, kind of like a Jolie cheek. One lippie off for not being very long wearing. It dries to a powdery finish which I don't like as much as the dewy BB pot rouges, but this color is worth it.

A fabulous colour indeed. Same great texture as all Blushcremes. The colour is a great neutral which works for everyday. I am suprised that it was not re promoted with the N Collection as it is such a great natural colour that leaves you looking pulled together and polished. This colour works great for me when I want to pull of the coveted 'peaches and cream' look, as it provides a light almost peachy base in which i can lightly layer a bit of Peaches over. Also is a great base for any coloured powder blush the powder adhiers (sp?) well to the creme. Will buy again.

This and lady blush are my fave blushes ever. Like everyone else has said this looks muddy and very ''blah i think ill pass...'' when u first see it but on it really is amazing. I always sway between nc25 and nc30 and this works on me however tan i am. Gives a nude beige muted dusty rose pink...JUST PERFECT...its something i can use every day with any makeup shades. I know it looks boring in the pan but u MUST try it on u and u too will be amazed!!

HG blush!! I would never have given this blah looking muddy blush a second look at the counter but I heard good reviews on MUA so I decided to check it out. And I am sooo glad I did......I bought this blush 5 months ago and I've been using it daily ever since. I actually hit the pan on this blush, something that I've never done with any other blush!! I agree with the reviewer below me, although the description "white nude rose" on the website is very vague, it somehow just fits the blush. It is a nude, neutral pink with hints of peach. It looks brownish in the pan but transforms into this gorgeous color when applied. Uncommon is perfect to wear alone for a hint of pink on your cheeks or to use as a base for powder blushes. This color is just so subtle/ easy to work with that it works as an 'anchor' for my powder blushes--I apply Uncommon and then layer a powder blush over it and it lasts all day. It's the perfect everyday blush. This doesn't look like it has much peach, but on my skin NC40 warm toned asian skin, the peach in it really pops out after an hour or so after application.
