This does not look anything like it did on Mac's site but I love it. It looked more baby doll pink in photos and in person it is very very subtle. It is the perfect natural blush for a smokey eye. Beautiful soft pink matte shade. On me this just blends into my skin with a hint of pink. It gives just a hint of color that is perfect when you want the focus to be on your eyes. I apply with my Nars yachiyo and it provides the perfect amount. I also never have any trouble with Mac blushes lasting all day on my skin. Would purchase again but I have yet to hit pan on any of my Mac blushes. They last forever A+

actually quite impressed! bought it on a whim as I am more of a peachy girl, but it is a lovely colour! leans quite purpley on my skin as I build it up (it can be quite sheer unless you slap it on), but I love this as I think bright pink cheeks are just too much on my complexion! I actually dropped this on holiday, but it was easily pressed back into the pan with the bottom of a makeup brush (LOL) and although it lets a little burst of dust out when I open it, it is still usable and travel-able. I really like the packaging too, although it is pricey so definitely think hard about what shade you are going to buy

Great everyday blush! It is the perfect pink, only downside is that you have to build it up quite a bit to really see it. If it was so sheer it would be perfect.

This gives my NC20-25 skin a perfect 'workout' flushed cheek look I purchased it after ladyblush was dicontinued, although this is more of a cooler shade of pink- it's a nice and girlie pink- some may find it a little boring the shimmers do not show up on my skin when applied - color may even look somewhat matt I like this as it looks more natural. I originally found a SIMILAR color by BOOTS no 17 range plum blush (near a DUPE LADIES) as MAC did not have Dame in stock although I am a fan of premium make up I found the boots brand blush a tiny bit more plummier than pink they both give me a gorgeous natural look and the boots brand is easier to apply as the Mac blush is hard to use is not easy to take out of the pot I found that I had to really press my MAC blush brush on to the product to get some out and it was coated in a sheen within a few weeks and so the color could not be easily removed out of the pan - so I would not say the quality of the blush is great but the color is nice- but I am alittle bored of having to dig deep in order to apply a small amount of blush. The blush wears of like many blushers after a few hours. Overall I am happy with the shade but not with the quality, I have never found using blusher such an effort.
update: WHEN I LOOK AT THIS BLUSHER I REGRET BUYING AS IT WONT EVEN COME OUT OF THE PAN USING MY MAC BLUSHER BRUSH; SHADE IS SOMEWHAT FLAT!!!

This is a gorgeous pink on my NC30/C4 skin tone. I use it when I go for a smokey eye look and need just a light blush colour to compliment it. I would say its a true pink on my skin, it doesnt go peachy or red (unlike some pinks Ive tried like Nars Deep Throat) Its a very pretty girly flush, love!

Dame is an understated cool-toned, medium pink on my NC25 skin. It gives a soft, healthy glow to my cheeks. It applies very sheer and takes several layers to get a color even remotely similar to the color in the pan. If you're looking for a statement blush, skip this one. Dame creates a very natural (but very beautiful) look. As with the other six (and counting) MAC blushes I own, this has excellent staying power on me and I would definitely repurchase when I get low, which will no doubt be a very long time from now! :) Oh yeah, this was $20 at my local MAC counter, which I didn't mind forking over as MAC creates excellent products!

This is my first every MAC blush. I actually won it in a contest held by a local network for agency peeps. Lol. Anyway, I'm an NC30-35 and this is a really good color on me. It gives my cheeks the right pop of pinky color.
Would i buy it again? probably if I can already afford to buy it. Lol.

This was my first ever MAC product. I asked the guy there for a good blush, and he recommended this one and showed me it on my cheeks. It looked amazing! I've tried drugstore blushes and they never really wowed me. But, this one did. And I always thought it was ridiculous to spend $20 for ONE item, but I think this was worth it. It's a light pink with subtle blue sparkle, something I have never seen in any drugstore colors. Also, the pigmentation when swatched or on your brush looks awful, but somehow when it gets on your face it gives just the prettiest glow. I love this blush!

A soft dusty pink with plummy notes but it's too sheer on my NC30/C4 light tan Asian complexion. It shows up after 3 layers using my MAC 116 and doesn't look too powdery since it's a satin finish but it takes a lot of work for this subtle shade to show up. It does have a nice texture tho and lasts at least 6 hours which is solid. It might be a nice soft pink on fairer gals and guys but too light for me!

Really I would give this product a 3.5.
- - -
Pros - natural finish. wearable pink shade. long lasting. easy to blend / apply. slight glowy sheen (not shimmer or glitter)
- - -
Cons - a little too sheer considering this is a satin finish blush and not a sheertone blush. I didn't find this shade to be true to color.
- - -
Over all - this is a very pretty, wearable shade of pink. However, I find that once applied the color in the pot is not the color on my cheeks. I was anticipating a little more of a statement blush (based on the shade and not being a sheertone blush) and this is definitely more of a subtle wash of color. This blush does look beautiful on fair skin with dark features (I'm NW 15 / NW 20 with brown hair, brown eyes). Not sure if I would re purchase.
