I love MAC blushes and wear them exclusively, Melba is definitely one I will always keep around. A beautiful warm coral-peachy shade that compliments my fair-medium skin, dark hair and light brown eyes; Melba is one of 3 daily blushes I usually wear. It applies smooth plus has fantastic longevity with any foundation I have used with it. It looks natural while leaving a wonderful skin-like finish even though it is matte. Melba stays true to color and does not get orange or ruddy on me. I apply it using my favorite blush brush, the MAC 116.

Since I get the pan for the pro palette I pay $17 for 6g of product. With daily use Melba lasts me quite awhile. I have been repurchasing this blush for years now so that speaks volumes about Melba. A great addition to anybodies stash weather you are a professional, at home guru or beginner. Melba is jst one of those great workhorse blushes for any occasion and I highly recommend it.

It took me a while to get used to this color...my everyday blush is Blushbaby. I have noticed when I wear this I get lots if compliments on my face. Very pretty coral peachy color. Got to be easy on the hand it can get a bit bright so if applied lightly it looks stunning. Has turned out to be a favorite and love to rotate with Blushbaby depending on my lipstick and basically how I'am feeling that day. Tried Peaches but that was a bit too orange. Melba is just about perfect!!!!

It's an okay blush. It's obvious that I've put on blusher when I wear this.
It looks kinda orangey on me.

I bought this because of the hype. Wish I had bought Mocha instead.

This pales in comparison to Blushbaby.

I am NC20, btw.

It`s light peach on me ..almost ethereal goddess like ... its beautiful!!!!... i got this after learning this was a favorite in the middle east. Their makeup is always perfect.

My only complaint abt Melba, is the staying power. It literally faints within hours. This is the problem with Mac blushers. I had the same problem with Mac`s Springsheen (which i say is a dupe for Nars Orgasm).Wouldnt re-purchase. The stay on power is soooo poor.

This is my first MAC blush and I have mixed feelings about it. I have a pretty fair complexion and luckily I can pull off tones from warm to cool with little problem. This blush is a very pretty peachy shade and has nice pigmentation. Unfortunately it sometimes look rather orange and ruddy on me vs. natural. I don't try to apply it too heavy handed but I do generally need 2 swipes to make it show up well. Even after I blend it out it might look fine in a certain light and then I catch a glimpse of myself in other light and it looks obvious and orange. In general though it's a very nice blush with decent staying power and I'm happy to have it in my collection. It goes with pretty much any other makeup look which is always a plus (natural, smoky, warm, cool, and any lipstick color), so it gets an A+ for versatility. I would like to try more MAC blushes!

I seriously cannot rave about Melba enough. I have medium toned skin with quite obvious yellow undertones and this works perfectly. It warms up my complexion without making me look any darker or ruddy. I love this blush when during the summer and even during the winter months. Melba is like a gorgeous muted peachy tone which I imagine would be flattering across all skintones. At first, on switching in the MAC store, I hated the way the swatch was quite chalky. I swear, on the skin Melba is by no means chalky and seems to blend like a dream and well. Although the formula is matte, it is does not look flat on the skin and makes you look healthy and glowing from within. I would definitely recommend this to all you lovely ladies looking for a gorgeous, natural, everyday blush and especially to those of a warmer complexion. Would i repurchase? Of course! One lippie off the price tag as I am a student and 18 for a blush is not reasonable, affordable or practical. Packaging is the traditional MAC packaging with a clear window which makes the blush easy to identify.

I am a bit of a blush junkie. This is probably my favorite blush of all time. It's the perfect flush whether you're wearing a full face of makeup, or want to go fairly natural. Being a MAC product, it's a bit on the expensive side but I think it's worth it.
