EDIT: 03/19/2014: Ok, so I take back everything that I said in my earlier review about this blush; it is now my HG! I have had it in my makeup collection for my while but just sort of bypassed it for my pinker blushes, (I have pink undertones), thinking that it was too warm for me. However, a couple of weeks ago I was at a MAC counter buying eye shadow when the nice artist wanted to touch up my cheeks while I was there. He applied the most gorgeous color that made my cheekbones practically pop out of my face, (they looked THAT AMAZING), and I asked him what color he was using and he said "Warm Soul". I went home and fell in love with how I looked! Needless to say, I gave this blush another chance and I LOVE it! It is perfect for spring/summer, but can be worn year round to give a healthy glow without looking fake! For reference, I am fair-skinned with dark brown hair and golden brown eyes. I don't feel that I even need bronzer with this blush, as this blush gives me a glow that looks nice and natural. I just wear it on my cheeks, but even without my regular contouring that I normally do with my EL bronzer, my cheekbones look so pretty and defined with this. I love it and will repurchase after I run out! A must try, as I think this will look good on any skin tone!!
PREVIOUS REVIEW: I wanted so badly to love this blush, as it is a beautiful, delicate color in the pan. For reference, I am fair with pink undertones, and have dark hair and light brown eyes. This blush is so very warm on me that I can't pull it off. I can see why so many people love it, but if you are cool-toned, this may be an issue for you, as well; Warm Soul is definitely in the warm family. If it were more of a neutral, I think I would really love it. I would recommend trying it on at the counter and looking at it in natural light before purchasing!!

I am NC30 and this is a great blush shade on me. I don't really like red/pink ones so this was the perfect colour, it is also long wearing and has a good amount of shimmer, not too much but its not to flat looking either. Only thing is I wish it was a bit more pigmented, I have to roll my brush over this a few times to get a good amount of colour, its easy to build up but because of this I also find it a bit difficult to blend evenly.

I purchased warm soul a while back and was obsessed with it at the beginning, i would use it every single day. As a makeup artist, im always trying out new products all the time, but i especially love face products. Warm soul is very unique, when you first look at it, you would think its a bronzy kinda colour, but when you swatch it, youll notice theres different colours in the mix, its very warm, a mix of warm pink and bronze. I find that extremely beautiful, and what i also love is that its so pigmented. With that, the blush is very shimmery, i gave it 4 lippies because i notice during the day the shimmer was all over my face and i hate that. You just gotta watch out for that. Other than that its an amazing blush!

I love the color on my NC25 skin. It's just the perfect, effortless blush that I opt for when I don't know what to wear. I don't mind the shimmer at all because it's not that noticeable. The only downside is its longevity. Throughout half of the day, it's already gone and I have to reapply which is fine but a little too high-maintenanced for a college student like myself. Other than that, it's a great blush for warm skin tones and I look forward to purchasing more from the mineralized line.

Oh. Wow. I went to the MAC counter to find a cheaper blush similar to my fave Miel Glac� from Lanc�me. I go through Miel Glac� in about 6 months and it's $30. I was looking at Cubic, which was pretty, but looked too matte. I also picked up Gleeful, but it looked a little red. The MA suggested Warm Soul, and I was instantly turned off when I saw it. In the pan it looked very bronzey with no rosiness. I am cool with a lot of pink in my skin and warm blushes usually look orange on me and clash with my skin tone.
I was definitely not expecting this color to give me a beautiful, natural flush, but it does. It is a warmer shade with peach tones, but it either works with my natural pinky tones or has a rosy undertone, because I get a very natural pinky-peach flush when I wear this.
The only con is that this is $25 and holds 11 oz of product. It seems that a little will go a long way, so hopefully this will last longer than six months. I might end up getting Cubic and mixing it with Warm soul to give it a little sheen. Overall, this is a great blush that will suit both cool and warm tones.

I am in love with this blush. It is a gorgeous natural tan with slight peach undertones and it gives your face the most perfect soft, tan glow. I have fair skin and I often have to be very careful with blush to make sure I do not over apply. With this blush, I don't ever have to worry about it looking over done. I hesitated to try this blush for the longest time because at the MAC counter the lights always made it look crazy shimmery. But it does not look like that on, it just gives a gorgeous natural finish to the skin and makes you look healthy and glowing. If you want soft natural looking blush or you're not usually a fan of how blush looks on you, I think you'll really love this color. I use the Real Techniques Multi Task brush to apply this.
Also, if you love Warm Soul I also recommend Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed. It's another amazing natural looking blush and one of my all-time favorites.

I think I'm in love with MAC blushes. Warm Soul is exactly what it sounds like. It sincerely makes you look like you're glowing from within, and it brings this warmth to your face that's incredibly natural yet glowing. It isn't super pigmented but it is very build-able. I usually use this alone for a pretty summery look or sometimes when I want a bit more I use "Immortal Flower" first, and then this on top of it. They blend together very well. I add a contour directly underneath and then blend together. I also HIGHLY recommend using NARS' "Albatross" Highlighter with this - it gives the most gorgeous, ethereal glow. I use this basically everyday and for a good reason!

Yes it's a bit expensive but it lasts forever as you don't need much for it to show. It also goes with everything. Most definitely my favourite blush ever!

Beautiful warm peachy color with golden shimmer. Gives radiance and glow to the skin without being too shimmery. Applies and blends easily.
For ref: I am NW20/25, and like it slightly better in the summer months.

I have a sephora blush from one of their old palettes, and whenever i remember to wear it, my husband literally molests me. Its a very light apricot thats hard to dupe and since im all for finding dupes as a challenge, I searched high and low for a similar shade with no avail. Everything was much too orange or "peachy" which isnt bad, but it just wasnt what i was looking for. I looked at many a swatch and decided that i had to see MAC peaches, melba, sincere, tenderling, and stay by me in person to find the correct dupe, or at least a likable color.
When i got to the counter, i swatched all of them. Orange, even more orange, brown, nasty, no and NO. I think stay by me was a very close dupe for the color, and got it anyway.
The point of the story is, a kind MUA pointed out warm soul to me as an alternative even when i thought it looked way scary in pan. Nope! It is like a beachier, tan alternative to that sephora shade, with just a hint of sheen on the cheeks. It pulls peachy, but not to the point of orange fake bake. Whats even better is that it made me look alive, refreshed, and genuinely blushing without blush. Sold! Im guessing it would be beautiful for very pale shades as well as darker tones as well as long as they are warm toned.
I hope to see lasting power with this, as Ive never tried mac blushes before. It is very pigmented, and i only need to pick up a bit each time so i can see this lasting forever. I hate the cheapo plastic case, but oh well since most blush cases unless they are NARS feel cheap to me. I can attest that the color is absolutely wonderful on my nc30 skin and complements neutral eye makeup looks very well. I will be rocking this for the summer, and use my stay by me once i lighten to nc20 in the winter so that i will captivate my husband forever and ever. Hah.
