So another reviewer said they believe this is one of MAC's hidden gems and I couldn't agree more . . . when I bought it the MAC SA tried to sample it on the back of my hand but it didn't really show up. She swatched it with a paper towel/kleenex and it looks muddy and I was kind of hesitant.

She convinced me to try it, and I'm really really glad she did. I wear it at least every other day and it's just a very neutral, soft pink. It looks muddy in the pan but it isn't once you put it on. I usually wear it over mineralize skin finish and it stays the same all day, doesn't oxidize at all. I use it on the apples of my cheeks and a little further down as I don't contour on a daily basis. For reference, in Studio Fix Fluid I wear a mixture of NW15 and NW20 so I'm really pale with cool undertones.

I wear this as a regular blush as, for me, it gives me a pop of natural colour without looking too much like it's blush. I naturally have very red skin so I was always hesitant about trying pinkish blushes but this one looks like it's a natural rosey cheek colour for me.

I usually finish with FIX + and that doesn't change the colour of it either. It's definitely a hidden gem because without the SA convincing me it would be amazing I definitely would not have purchased it and loved it.

Another reviewer mentioned she had trouble getting enough product out of the pan but I have found with this blush sometimes it looks like you don't have enough product on your brush but you definitely do to give you just that natural pop of colour. Definitely will repurchase once this runs out - which will be a while because you don't need a huge amount of this product for a great look.

I have light yellow skin tone and this is an amazing shade for contouring and gives me bronzed look. It is a cool toned taupe with a hint of peach undertones. It isn't very pigmented so you don't need to worry about over applying. I'm running out which reminds me that need to buy another one soon!

I love the colour of this it's my favourite everyday blush,but because it's quite a neutral colour I also use it for contouring. I will definitely be repurchasing this!

I love this blush so much. After years of wearing bright corals and pinks, I tried this for a subtler look and it looks absolutely splendid on my NC30-35 skintone. It's like a warm peachy nude on me and I love pairing it with my Lady Danger lipstick and just mascara on the eyes. Everyone needs to try that combination. Sometimes I use this blush over foundation and other times I layer it over my tarte cheek stain in fearless. Both results are great but I personally like it better when it's layered on top of cream blush because it lengthens the wear time and looks less powdery. The formula is matte so no shimmer yay! This ones definitely worth a try!

I love this muted blush, which I use as a contour blush since my skin is so light. To me, Prism is a great way to achieve chiseled cheeks without the muddy/orangey look of bronzer. Apply with the flat side of a blush brush for contour or give it a swirl on the apples of your cheeks if you're a darker lady. Pairs up well with my Too Faced "Perfect Flush Blush" applied on the apples.

This is a great neutral blush colour. It goes great with dramatic eyes and lips when your dont want your cheeks to compete, but you dont want them forgotten either. I wouldnt use this straight up as a contour, its too pink for that in my opinion. I do however use it as blush, but more on the 'back' of my cheeks...not on the apples. Its gives great definition and the right amount of colour.

I am very fair. NW20 in Prolongwear concealer. I was sold this at the counter for a contouring color! And I love it. I spent 2 hours at Sephora looking for a not-orange contour and after 20 seconds at MAC the MUA showed me this and I loved it. Cool ashy neutral almost pink. It has made me less afraid of contouring.

Love this! A muted blush that works for every day or night time and lasts forever! Looks dull in the package but is awesome on!

This is a wonderful, natural shade on my NW15 (quite neutral, actually) skin. I wanted a "nude" type of blush, and the MAC SA rec'd this. I reach for this often as a solid, anchor cheek color. It's a healthy, realistic color that I think would work well on most medium-to-fair skintones. Give it a try!
