This is, like, HG! I'm pretty pale - between 15 & 20 on the MAC scale - but neutral-toned. So when i wear a pink blush or a peach / apricot blush i have to adjust my make up to make me look warmer- or cooler-toned.
Pink Cult is a matte neutral pink, neither warm nor cool, slightly muted with perhaps the slightest hint of greige. On me it just the utmost of naturalness. It just looks like i have genuine color in my cheeks, not like i'm wearing a blush. I don't have to worry what other colors i'm wearing because it really looks like a natural extension of my skin.
I have mild rosacea in my cheeks, so before i wear ANY blush i have to tone down the redness (otherwise i'm heading into Bozo territory). So this might not show up much on someone who has normally red or pink cheeks.
This is a Limited Edition product. I bought it when it came out in the So Reel / Reel Sexy collection in April 2012. But MAC re-promotes some products from time to time so it might come back.

I bought this because of all the rave reviews but unfortunately it seems I am in the minority again. On my nc 20-25 skin it just doesn't show unless I really go to town with it and then it doesn't give me the dusky pink I was hoping for. I recently went back in store and they tried one of the new blushes from the Marilyn Monroe collection which had a peach tinge to it. As I have red cheeks I tend to steer clear of peach but it actually looked quite lovely so that will be my next stop in my search for a blush that I can wear all the time. Unfortunately for me but lucky for them, my daughters are ecstatic as pink cult has made its way into their stage make up for dance shows and dress ups. Lucky girls!

First off I have a ridiculous amount of blushes! I just bought this when it was released the last time & I love it. I have been wearing it everyday for a month. Its easy to wear with anything its a matte neutral pink. I'm NW20 with redness & it doesn't make me look feverish. I say the next time this gets released, snatch one up!

I really like this blush so natural! is is a mute pink, a little on the powdery side, but still easy to apply. I was scared at first it would not show up on my NC25-30 skin but it is just enough to make a flush effect for a more dramatic eye and lip look.

I love this blush! Its seriously the most amazing blush from MAC ever. I even bought a back up. This blush works on just about anyone!

I love this colour but it does not last long enough for my expectations, and is a little too powdery. Looks patchy by the end of the day. Perfect neutral muted pink that can go many different ways depending on the cream colour you use under it. I have used this over brit wit (favorite, but brit wit also doesn't last long so the performance of this combination is the worst), over coral cream blush, over mac CCB in hush, over pink cream blush, and over berry.

This blush is intense. When i first bought this I took my blush brush and did a few sweeps across the top. Bad idea. It is PIGMENTED!! Like WOWZA!! you dont need much at all. This is such a gorgeous pink that would suit many skintones.... Good job mac!

It's a pretty blush, but the color on my cheeks does not match the neutral, almost dusty light pink in the pan. When applied, it's a rather dupe-able (and dark) rosy flush rather than a subtle grayish pink, which is what I wanted.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight Eyes: Brown
Love this blush! This is my first MAC blush, and I am very pleased with this.
It is a matte blush that is a muted almost blue toned natural pink. I was worried that on my NC30-35 Asian skin tone, the pink would look unnatural, but it looked wonderful! Very natural! The color did not fade on me, but I do powder and set my make up with Skindinavia setting sprays. Color blended beautifully, and color goes very well with neutral/smoky, really any combination of eyes.
Surprisingly, a little goes a long way~, no need to go heavy handed with this, as it is most beautiful when used to create a natural flush.

Pink Cult looks nothing on the skin like it does in the pan. I have light-to-medium olive skin and thought it would be too light for me. However, like MAC Strada, it applies with more intensity than expected. It's been my experience with MAC blushes that they absorb skin oil and darken more than other powder-based blushes do, at least on my skin. In this case, the end result is a beautiful suede pink, light enough to layer and still look professional, but dark enough to give the cheeks a pop of color. The pink looks blue-toned in the pan, but on my skin it is genuinely neutral, and looks great with both warm and cool lipsticks. One lippie off for wearing unevenly over the day, which almost all MAC blushes do on me.

This is the perfect pink blush for me ! I'm really pale and warm toned and all the pink blushes I tried either made me look like a clown or just didn't go well with my skin undertones. This is one is very neutral so I think everyone with light to medium skin could pull it off. It's very pigmented for such a pale blush, I wasn't expecting that at all.I didn't have anything like it in my collection so I'm really glad I bought it, it's pretty unique :)

This colour is lovely on me (even if i say so myself). It has a really sweet natural effect and because its a matte blush it doesn't highlight imperfections on my skin like shinier blushes tend to do.
My only problem with it is that it doesn't last very long on me. Halfway through the day its gone. I have very dry skin so I don't know if this might be a reason but I've never had this short a lasting period with powder blushes.
I find that when I'm back home in Asia in summer, it tends not to look so nice on my very yellow looking skin. However when I'm in England and my skin is an ashier tone, it looks much nicer. Also works when I'm a bit tanned!

This is a great blush! I didn't think I would like it that much since pinks that have blue tones in them usually look fake on me, but this is actually a really pretty neutral pink. I love it on my NW20 skintone, but I imagine that this product would also look amazing on other skintones. The formula is very pigmented so you only need to use a tiny bit, and it is very soft. I have applied this with a number of brushes, including a blush brush, a larger powder brush (MAC 150), and a stippling brush, and it always looks good. I am glad mine is lasting forever as this was LE, but I would definitely recommend this if you ever come across it in a CCO or something! This is a matte blush (absolutely NO shimmer in it at all!), so you don't have to worry about this blush accentuating your pores.

Amazing blush. I'm quite fair so a lot of blushes are quite harsh against my skin, this is a lovely, natural looking matte pink.
If you're pale and have trouble finding a blush that isn't harsh, you must get this! It's very pigmented, so a little goes a long way - this will last forever.

So I was a little late to discover this product, when the collection launched I paid absolutely no attention to it. Well I also missed the whole rock and republic blush craze too so of course I went google crazy searching for blushes similar to R&R spank but of course didn't have the price tag of one. I came across this blush in my search and found that it was highly raved about and several people loved it. I was lucky enough (determined as well) to get this blush in a swap and I'm very happy with it. I'd never seen this blush in person but only on swatches on the internet. The color this is in the pan is not how it shows up on my skin, it's a little more rosey and warm, less pink then what I expected (and what I was hoping for). The staying power is about the same as all mac blushes and it's completely matte, which is what I prefer. It's a very pretty blush I'm happy to have in my collection and hope they relaunch it so those who missed out can try it as well. I took of one lippie since the color was a little off from what it looks like in the pan and it only last about 4 hours on me. As much love as this blush gets you'd think they would make it a permanent color.

What it is: a matte, extremely cool toned shade of pink.
- - -
Pros - long wearing. very blendable. pigmented. Difficult to go overboard when applying this blush.
- - -
Cons - limited edition.
- - -
Over all - considering how light this shade I think it would probably have an easier time showing up on fair skinned individuals. I'm NW 15 / NW 20 and this shade gives the subtlest, most natural hint of color. No shimmer, glitter, etc. If you're looking for a strong wash of color or a statement blush, then this is not it. This is more of a 'I'm not wearing any blush' blush. I wouldn't say I reach for this often (I prefer red blushes) but when I do, I'm never disappointed.

I love pink blushes! And this is definitely another blush that I love! I think that this blush leans a bit cool, but still shows quite neutral but still bright pink on my skin! But it's not a shocking shade of pink. I think it's very flattering on my skintone. I'm about an NC30-35. I'm not sure how this will look on darker skintones?
Overall, I'd buy this again if it weren't LE. I'm actually looking for a backup hehe =]

MAC Pink Cult is such a flattering shade of pink. It's got some neutral taupe and dusty tones, and it's easy to apply a little or a lot. It's my favorite blush, but I only have 5 blushes. I only wear blush once or twice a month, but I grab Pink Cult almost every time.
The formula is fine. The powder is soft (but not buttery) and blends easily. I usually apply with a MAC 109 brush. If I'm looking for a bit more sparkle, I swipe MAC MSF in By Candlelight over the top and blend for a pretty, natural-looking glow.
What I like most about it is that the color is muted and subtle, but still different and unexpected because of the hints of brown. All my other blushes are peaches and powder pinks (I'm quite pale), so Pink Cult feels very unique to me.

This is a lovely colour for my skintone (NC25). I feel like it doesn't really last on me though - I can hardly see it after lunchtime. Very subtle, very natural, very pretty!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
Amazing blush. I'm quite fair so a lot of blushes are quite harsh against my skin, this is a lovely, natural looking matte pink. Shame it's LE, might have to get a backup.
If you're pale and have trouble finding a blush that isn't harsh, you must get this!
