I didn't really like this MSF initially. I thought it was too shimmery and made my face look like a disco ball. Then I decided to pair it with NARS Exhibit A and OMG!!!! The combo is stunning and I always get compliments when I wear them together. This alone is reason enough for me to repurchase. Hopefully I can find more combos that will allow me more use of this product.

Great for use as a bronzer for me. Warm gold, brown and pink tones. I dab my brush in all colors and apply to the apples of my cheeks, a bit to my chin and a bit between my eyes. Must be applied with a very light hand or the glitter will be garish.

I love this MSF. This is probably my favorite! This is so pretty. It is a little bit on the shimmery side, but worth it. The color shows up so well on my skin tone (NC40). I think this would look great on every skin tone as a bronzer. Def a must try! I would absolutely buy this again if I had to!

This is definitely one of the prettiest MSF's MAC has come out with! There are three strips of color: a light coppery gold, a deep bronze with a smidge of plum, and a soft pinky/peach. All of them have shimmer, which unfortunately makes this unable to be utilized as a bronzer, which is the only downfall to this MSF. On my skintone (NC40), Warm Blend is a gorgeous deep warm bronze with gold shimmer that casts tones of peach and light rose. This is stunning as a blush or dusted lightly to highlight. The three colors in this blend together just beautifully and adds a warm finishing touch that would compliment a variety of "looks". Definitely one I'll reach for often!!

First MSF I could probably use every day!
I love MSFs, used to have a collection! Which actually to me means, I never used them, just kept them...-.-;;;
...but I'm glad that I stopped by various MAC Stores & MAC counters to see if they had this one! I went to four different counters/stores and finally found it! (By a strike of luck actually too!)
First and biggest thing I love about it is that you can actually see it on my face. While I am an NC40, I find that some MSFs, actually, MOST MSFs, cannot be seen on my skin! Thank goodness for Warm Blend.
Second, it stays on for a while. I'm in Southern California for the time being, and it's SUPER hot. 103-107 degrees this past week! Unlike my liquid foundation, the MSF does not go anywhere, thank goodness. (Shouldn't you expect that? Hahaha!) I've seriously had MSFs that by the end of the day, all that was left was the shimmer!
& the way I see it, if my brother asks me why I have bronzed cheeks, then I know it's still there! Lastly, it can be used as an eyeshadow! I knew if I didn't keep it for an bronzer/blush, then I would definitely use it for an eyeshadow, yep it works too! Loved it!
The only thing I can probably complain about would have to be the shimmer, but I'm not bothered by it too much. If I was older I wouldn't like a bunch of shimmer on my cheeks, but right now, for myself personally, I can deal with it! Especially since without them my face probably still looks like a pale white ghost!
I want at least a couple more...doubt I'll change my mind about this anytime soon! Get one while you can ladies!! (:

I actually purchased this with the intent of using as eyeshadow. I use either of the two lightest shades as an all over lid color and the deepest brown shade as a crease/outer shade. It's actually quite nice. The medium shimmery bronze color actually reminds me of a sheerer Tempting (sheerer obviously because this is a MSF). I have never tried this as a face color, because I imagine that it'd probably be too dark for my NW25 skin tone, but I may try it one day.

I really like this MSF! A bit too shimmery for everyday use, but very versatile. I love using the middle strip to contour, the gold strip to add sparkle over blush, and the dark champagne color to highlight my nose and chin. All 3 strips are great as eye shadows. I highly recommend, but I do take one lippy off for a bit too much glitter.

I love this MSF!
This is a lovely shimmery bronzer that I use when my skin gets pretty pale (I'm usually an NW25) and I need that "healthy glow" look. I don't think this would be an everyday topping (unless you're okay with the shimmery look everyday)--but I discovered how even more lovely this truly is when used as eyeshadow! I always make sure that I put UDPP on my lids and to use a stiff brush when applying. :]

I love it!! I used this stuff as a highlighter on my cheeks bones. My cheeks took on a sutle metalic glow. It's super sexy! my fondation is a nc 45/50.

Love this MSF as well..It does have shimmer but not a lot of glitter chunks like some of the MSF's ..I agree it is a must have for darker tones and tanner complexions...But I think anyone can wear it depending on the application. Gives a beautiful dark golden bronzey glow to the skin...very pretty!

This is a terrific product, especially for African American women of all shades. I am NC44, and I am loving it. Beautifully, highly pigment colors. I love them swirled together or even separately. I sometimes use the middle darker color for contour. This is a great purchase from the Colour Craft Collection. So excited about this purchase!

For reference, I am NC 25/30 with yellow undertones, dark hair and eyes.
Warm Blend Mineralize Skinfinish from MAC's Color Craft Collection is one of the more unique colors in the collection IMO. MAC describes it as "Antique Gold, Mahogany Bronze, and Copper" and when swirled together, I think that it looks like a deep rich bronzey brown with gold shimmer and sheen. The word that comes to mind is a "gold ore" because it is SUCH a rich, deep, lush color! Honestly I think you have to see it as a swatch or on your cheeks to appreciate it because the pigmentation is superb.
Since it is a "trio" the colors separately I didn't care too much for, they were more or less deep gold or coppery but swirled together they really do form a stunning brown- gold with just a hint of warm rose perhaps.
In comparison to other MSFs that have come out in the past like So Ceylon, Gold Deposit or Brunette MSF, I think that this is certainly different enough to own. So Ceylon, one of my favorite MSFs has much more rose/pink to it and Warm Blend is much more brown. Gold Deposit is more gold IMO and Brunette more resembled So Ceylon to me. But again, YMMV.
Because I am more pale, NC25 at the moment, I used this with a very light hand with the new #131 stippling brush as a bronzer and was pleased with the result. It has NO orange tones and its pinker tones are not noticeably that you look like an orange mess. I know that it seems quite frosty in the pan but TAP off the excess from the brush and it is far more glowy than glittery. I applied it on my cheeks, bridge of nose and some on the peripery and was pleased to see that it looked quite natural.
I think that this color would be absolutely gorgeous on darker skinned ladies, I could see it as totally lighting-up the face!!
The texture is quite nice, smooth and buttery, although I found that the Mineralize Blushes from this collection are more smooth than the MSFs this time around. It retails for $27 for 9g (The trios from this collection are 1 g less than regular MSFs

This is a must have for WOC!!! This looks sooo pretty and shimmery on my NC45 skintone. I use it for eyeshadow and as a bronzer/highlighter. LOVES IT!!

If you already have So Ceylon or Golden Bronze Iridescent powder, I would suggest that you forgo this MSF from the color craft collection. I am not sure what to make of it because it is too shimmery to be a bronzer and bit dark to be a highlighter. I played around with it a bit and used the lightest color as a highlighter. That turned out nice after a bit of blending. I am considering returning it because I find that this MSF is easily dupeable.
