This is a great blush... it's very harsh in the pan but applied lightly and sheered out it can really work on some skintones. I usually use in conjunction with a more "wearable" color during the day... at night, esp if photos will be taken, I wear it layered on top of a red cheek stain and it comes off as a perfect but stronger flush. I'm NC25 for reference and wear it winter & summer. It's LE but I did see it in CCO during spring 2012.

I'm an NC35 and the color looks clownish on me. :( I'm giving it a slightly higher rating, just for the awesome packaging.

Looks like a coral red in the compact but when it goes on it's like a pink natural red. It's really pretty. reminds me of like that natural blush color pale little girls have.It's a beautiful blush.
In my opinion a great dupe is Benefit's Benetint. Even though that one is liquid the colors are identical on me!

I have medium olive toned skin NC30-35 and this blush is not at all flattering on my skin. It's a beautiful blush with medium-high pigmentation but I think it would look better on cooler toned, lighter/fairer skin. I think that my skin's undertones and the blush's undertones, just clash on my face and it makes me look red rather than like I have a nice natural flush (like the blood just rushed to my cheeks).

Would you buy this product again? I typed yes, but i think i don't have to or if i have to, it will be hard to find.
This blush really lives up to the hype. It's sooo gorgeous! I received it in a swap and it's the perfect color for my cheeks. I'm an nw20/25 red head girl and this blush just makes my make up. It's the blush i'm longing for for so long. Just the perfect red/pink color for cheeks, with no shine. The only downside is that it's not very pigmented.
I'm really happy i have it in my stash!

I simply adore this blush :D

This was one of my birthday presents this year, and I love it! The package is adorable, and it's very fun to use. I only use this when I'm going for high drama, as this blush is straight up Geisha-girl red. But it is a very pretty finish. I bet this would look amazing on darker skin tones.

While I usually steer clear of most corals, since my complexion leans cool, the pink in Bite of an Apple makes it very wearable; it leaves a very pretty glow on the skin.
Also: I am not sure if it is bound tightly, or it just happens not to be very heavily pigmented -- but my brush does not easily pick up a ton of product, and it applies very sheerly. While the color can be built up, you definitely have to work at it. I'm very fair (NW5-10; NARS Siberia) and it works well on me -- so I imagine with the right application technique, it could work on anyone.

I received this blush from a swap. It looked red on swatches but it is a very coral color. Sort of reminds me of Marine Life. I didnt know how I felt about this at first since it is very pigmented and it looked a little too much on my skin tone. (NC25) but It looks gorgeous under Pink Power's MSF and definitely gorgeous BLENDED. This may not be a blush for fair skinned ladies though. I love the packaging!

very pretty coral color. use a stippling brush that picks up less product and work from there if you want to build it up. i love blushes that are matte or satin and this is matte so i think it's just AWESOME!! this was also limited addition and is no longer sold at mac. i got this on ebay and paid alot for it but i really like it. really recommend.

This blush can be hard to work with, especially for the fair skinned ladies out there. If you aren't careful and use a light hand with this color you can end up looking sunburnt instead of nicely flushed. If used with a stippling brush it can create a beautiful healthy glow. This is one of my favorite blush products, if I could, I would purchase this again.

This looks terrifying in the pan! It's tomato red! I only really bought it because I love the Disney theme and the packaging is so darn cute, but it turns out it's actually a really nice product. Surprisingly, it's a subtle pop of colour that's really warm and fresh. As always with MAC blushes, it's super smooth and velvety, and I love how very matte it is.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
I was terrified of using this, but bought it anyway, because I was determined. In the pan it looks like clown makeup, but on it is a much different story. I apply it lightly with a very fluffy brush, and I'm able to achieve a nice rosy glow. It looks like I've just stepped in from the cold or the gym. I am NC20-25ish with light golden undertones and brunette hair.

I was scared of the bright coral colour in the pan, but it translates beautifully on my NW20 skintone. It has just enough pink so that it doesn't come off orange at all. It's super pigmented and has a satiny matte finish, so I use the 188 to avoid looking clownish. It's really unique in my stash, so I reach for it often when I'm doing a warmer look.

I basically bought this because of the packaging and the Disney collaboration. More specifically, the Evil Queen on the lid reminds me of the Evil Queen animatronic that looks out of the window above Snow White's Scary Adventure in Disneyland. Anyway, it turns out that while MAC can sell me a blush for being a huge sucker, they can also make it a good blush. This is totally unique from anything else in my stash. It's very pigmented, but it doesn't look too over the top on pale skin. I love this blush.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Black, Curly, Medium Eyes: Green
Like other reviewers, I also thought this would be too pigmented for me. Nope! I use a stipple brush to apply this to get the color more spread out. I like this a lot. It is a raspberry coral on my skin and it looks great! I actually was wondering if this is a dupe for one of my Physicians Formula Happy Booster blushes. This reminds me of one of those (Rose, I think) so I'm going to have to swatch them side by side to see if they are alike. However, this blush is quite unique in my collection because it is matte and has the cool VV packaging. I think if you love blush, you should get this.

At first, I thought there was no way that this would work for me. oy ws I wrong! It's a combo between a flushed look and a subtle yet perfect look. The color looks a bit strong when just looking t the blush, but once you apply it, it's now my go to blush. My 15 yer old daughter swiped this from regulary and it looks gret on her. My main problem is keeping it when she's not using it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I looooooove this blush!!! I was hesistant in purchasing it at first because it looked so bright in the pan, but once I had it on, it gave me a perfect natural healthy pink flush! Love!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan, Warm Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I love this blush! It gives me that "I just saw my crush and he just smiled at me" flush. I'm NC35 in the winter and on me it's a lovely coral red. It is so pigmented! I use my Ecotools skunk brush for this blush which works like a charm. Like other MAC blushes I own, it is fragrance free and easy to blend. I love that is it matte as well. It is limited edition but I'm confident this will last me a really long time. If not, well, I always have my back up ;).

Nice blush, pigmentation can be increased with more swipes or can be worn as a nice sheer wash over cheeks. It isn't overwhelming. It looks super bright in the pan but it isn't as red as it appears. It's a coral-pink-red color lol. It's unlike anything I own.
