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.

Dame has been my favorite pink blush, since I've purchased it, over 4 years ago. On my NC35, peachy-olive skintone, it's a very doll-like (strawberry-pink) blush, but not too cool-toned for those of us with very warm skintones to pull off. Finding a good pink blush for my skintone is quite difficult, since most verge on being too bright/pigmented (MAC Fleur Power), or have the right opacity, but wrong undertones that clash with my coloring (NARS DeepThroat). The fact that I also have slight redness in my cheeks may be the cause of these blushes failing, however, Dame works with these issues and creates a very natural, beautiful pop of color. The pigmentation of this blush is quite sheer, so I always apply at least two layers to allow its true color to show up, but I like how conveniently buildable and blendable the texture is. It can last up to a few hours, more-so, when I'm wearing a foundation with primer underneath. Neutral eyes are my favorite look to wear, and I really, really love how this blush plays right along with them! It doesn't upstage any of my features, in fact, it's a very nice contrast with my dark brown hair and eyes. Makes me look happy, fresh, and awake. Would definitely repurchase this staple over and over.

This is a really pretty blush color, its a pale pink and great for people with fair skin! Its very cool tone pink and doesn't look harsh at all. It gives a very nice flush and healthy look, stays on all day, it wore it for at least 10 hours and it stayed on as if it didn't move at all from the first time i applied it! This is my first MAC blush and im very impressed. I got it for A$41, but it would last for ages, so its worth it and the quality is great!

Very pretty cool/neutral medium pink. It gives a healthy glow and I like that it's not full of frosty glitter. It's very pretty on medium-olive skin.

The colour is quite pretty but on the sheer side. The colour doesn't show up on me too well but has can give a nice flush to the skin. I would recommend to someone more pale, Clinque Blush in 14 Iced Lotus is similar but far more pigmented.

A lovely colour for those with pale skin. I'm fair skinned with dark hair and find this blush to be very complementary. It blends well against my skin and doesn't have that "I've got blush on" look that a lot of other blushes can give your face. Just be careful not to over apply as it can make you look sun burned or ultra embarrassed! My current favourite blush aside from MAC's 'Well Dressed'- another excellent blush for those who are "tanned challenged". Like all MAC stuff, I find it quite expensive- but I'd rather pay for quality than waste money on blush that looks terrible on me.
EDIT: I've come to realise it's my HG blush- dark haired gals with light skin get in on this now!

I got this blush a long time ago.
Honestly, I only use abit to give me some color. It doesn't match my skin tone I don't think.. but if I'm going out for a night out partying or whatnot and need a more oomfy color for pictures, I often go to this one.

This is my favorite blush! Definitely the best shade for a cool toned pink. It's not too light and not too dark. It adds a beautiful shimmer and would go great for fair to medium skin tones for a perfect dolly look. If you are looking for something just a touch lighter, I would recommend Well Dressed by MAC.

I was looking for a cool-toned blush to wear with cool-toned shadows and lipsticks that I own. It is a pretty blue-based pink with a satin finish. It provides just the right amount of pigment without being crazy pigmented and dramatic. Gives my fair skin a nice flush, and blends well.
