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.

This is my first MAC blush, and im very impressed! i have very pale skin and it gives me a healthy flush of colour. It has cool undertones so it is a perfect winter blush

I had this blush for quite awhile and used it for the first time since winter just to mix things up a little with my makeup look. This is a nice cool toned pinky blush on my olive/dark NC44 complexion. It does take a few good swipes for it to show up but when it does it gives a very pretty fresh faced doll look. Not warm and bronzed like some of the peachy or brownish blushes that I have. This blush looks natural when you tie it in with a similar lip colour. I actually use the blush on my lips by swiping it with my finger then dab it on. It comes off as a little bit of a deeper cool pink when its mixed on the lips with lip balm. Not sure why this isn't showing up for some people that are lighter complexion. Maybe it depends on the lighting. Also I know if I lightly dust it on It won't show up on me but if I work it in to my moisturized/primed face the colour pay off is definitley there. Oh and I also noticed a little bit of a purplish sheen in certain lighting but it's not over the top and stilll looks pretty. I think I would buy this blush again because the purplish sheen seems kind of unique. This is a great winter blush but also can work nicely for the warmer months. Glad I revisited this one after so long of not using it. One more thing... when testing out the colour it does not look great swiped on the fingers but work it onto the back of your hand and you'll see it looks lovely.
