I originally ordered blush palettes from camera ready cosmetics because they claimed to fit mac blushes and had eight pan slots, but they lied-my mac blushes were too big! Plus on top of that I lost money on the return shipping and their re-stocking fee!
*update: CRC read my negative review on their site and emailed me....they said mac has two sized blushes...they updated their webiste to reflect this, but i never checked to make sure...the only mac product i can think of that would have fit would be the cream colour bases lol which i guess can be used as a base for blush....they said it was too late for a shipping refund, but was given $10 store credit, which i probably won't use anytime soon, so hopefully it doesn't expire or anything, so i added a lippie for addressing my negative review :-)

Can't add much to the excellent first review for this product, except to second it. I am new to cream blushes and thought I'd take a chance on the four color palette from CRC, and it was the best $10.99 I've spent on makeup. I'm pale, NC15, and older, so I'm looking for a healthy, subtle color to avoid crossing into the "hag" zone. I was very pleasantly surprised at the lovely transparency of the colors, and shocked to find that I can actually wear all four: Lullaby, Decoy, Feisty and Flaunt (not sure which is which: nude pink, nude brown, coral and rose). That's my only gripe about the packaging, the color names are shown in a quadrant but it doesn't quite match up perfectly with the product on the other side.
Forget the names, do yourself a favor and get this blush.

Some of the best $11 I've ever spent.
This cream blush palette comes in a 1 7/8-inch, 1 oz. round container, like the wheels of color cosmetics from Ben Nye, Graftobian and other pro lines. (It's the same diameter as half-ounce cream foundation pots, but deeper.) Compact and graphically appealing in a no-frills way. The four colors are two mattes -- a sandy nude pink and a slightly deeper brown nude -- and two shimmers in a peony pink and soft coral. The shimmer is very, very slight. Don't worry about it looking obvious or aging -- it just adds a little glow to the color.
The colors are very, very wearable and flexible. I can get just about every look I ever need, from a bright coral pop of color (with or without a muted nude underneath) to a sheer bronzer effect. I don't know how well this would work on the very darkest skintones, but if you're fair to medium-deep in skin color, you should be able to get a lot of mileage out of these. The colors blend into the skin beautifully -- very natural-looking.
I get excellent wear from this -- like many other pro products, it's highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way and the color resists fading. There's no masking scent, so it smells faintly of wax, but I can't detect it on the skin at all.
If you've been considering the cream blush wheel from Ben Nye but wanted more muted colors, this is for you. If you've been even thinking about cream blushes from other companies (*cough*Stila*cough**cough*Lipstick Queen*cough*) then do yourself and your pocketbook a favor and look at this. Lots of excellent product, lots of versatility and at a price you can't beat. (www.camerareadycosmetics.com, not affiliated but smitten).
