WARNING: This blush can be a bit boring alone. However....
I really love it because it's neutral, and if you have fair skin, it great. After I use it as blush, I sometimes brush it over my nose for a bronzer look because it's muddy pink and you can get away with that.

It stays on really well, and it gets along well with my skin and my bare minerals foundation and various concealers. It's subtle...great for a natural look that you need to get in a hurry. Love the packaging! Love how it stays clean and compact inside the container even after i swirl my brush around in it. Favorite blush...although i find myself adding high lighters and rosey blushes on top if I'm getting dressed up.

I usually wear bronzer in place blush so this was my first transition into pink tones. It's quite subtle and not too pink. Neutral and matches almost any colour scheme.

Like many others have mentioned, Prism is a very neutral blush that is very easy to wear. It is one of those 'I don't have to think what colors to match it with' kind of color, because it truly goes with pretty much everything. I am a neutral kind of girl, nc35 for reference & combo/oily. I find that the color pay-off is pretty decent as well, when I pair this with MAC's prep & prime spf50 it lasts all day long, which is a huge plus. Also I find the color to be very buildable, has a matte texture that is so different from my Nars blushes, no glitter, no sheen, just a dusty muted pink/brown/slightly bronzey color on me. The only downside I can think is that it can sometimes be a little boring, so I pair it with some kind of highlighter (Guerlain's meteorites at the moment) and the combination is a pretty one.

Helped me on my path to discovering blush. I already have red tones in my face and was always scared to add more, and don't look good in cool pinks on the apples of the cheeks as makeup artists at department stores were fond of putting on me. But this one is not red or cool pink, and not peach or orange but a rich neutral pinky-brown. It's also matte. The color and finish are good for contouring.



I'm no MAC addict, but they have a great range of colors in most products - including blush, and they also have a good selection of mattes. This is the subtle, flattering color I wasn't finding elsewhere. And it compliments my skin and just about every lip and clothing color. Looks like it would flatter many skin tones as well as it does mine.



It's pigmented and lasts a long time but is slightly more difficult to blend than some other powders, I've noticed - but worth it.

I bought this on a whim when looking for neutral blushes. However, this just ended up looking dirty and dull on me, luckily the staying power wasn't so great, so it rubbed off to normal looking in a couple of hours. I'm better off sans blush in this case.

This blush is almost right for my skin tone, but not quite. It's workable, but I need something a little pinker. I love the blush itself, however - goes on light but allows you to build, so you can choose your intensity. Great staying power, and feels good on my skin.

Prism is a pretty pinky/brown color, unfortunately on my very cool/fair skin it showed up sort of muddy and just did not deliver that glowy, blush effect that I look for in blushes. I can see this working on warmer skin tones. I own Cubic which is a better choice for my coloring.

Lovely shade! I'm milky fair (NC10-15) and this blusher gives a really soft brown 90's flush to the cheeks. It looks great with my skintone. It looks wonderful with a black/brown smokey eye and cold nude lips! I understand if it's hard to wear if you're medium or dark though..

This blush is really nice. It's a nice dusty color which can act as a contour color for lighter folk. I love how it gives me a nice glow and a dust of color. It perfect for my skintone and it looks nice on lighter skintones, I'm not sure about darker skintones, but it's nice.
