Wow, this blush is NOT overrated! It really is beautiful and brown-girl friendly. Smokey yet multi-dimensional, it is that rare "dark" color that can be worn all year long. A definite repurchase.

I hate the blush packaging, it's so boring!!! Lol. I digress, sweet as cocoa is a beautiful color for darker toned ladies. I'm not a huge fan of the shimmer blushes so I returned this blush and chose coppertone.

I love this blush so much! It gives my face the warmth that's perfect for my skin tone. It is a blush but works like a 3-in-1 (blush, bronzer and highlighter). It has shimmers in it to give you a nice glow but it is also in the brown side so it gives a shadow when placed close to the hollow of the cheekbones. I do find that this needs a bit of blending and it's VERY pigmented so make sure to tap off the excess from your brush or swirl it on the back of your hands first before applying to your cheeks. Overall, it's a great buy and perfect for warming up my face.

The color is wonderful on me. It's a rather berryish color that really makes my cheeks stand out! This is great for medium to darker skin tones so it doesn't make you look like a clown. It's great for going to work or going out at night and isn't too flashy, it's just right :)

This is my first MAC blush and I am so in love. I've been looking for a great everyday blush that gives me a perfect glow. It's not muddy or too red, just perfect. I have a pretty glow which looks good with everything. I'm an NC50 for reference and I urge all NC50s to get this blush! It's perfect for everyday!

I have used this blush for years! I use NC50 in mac, and the golden shimmer really complement my skin tone. I takes me about 2 years to finish this blush, so I think it value for money. The only down side is sometimes the clear plastic cover sometimes falls out (easy to put back in) and if its in your bag..........well its not great. all in all great of warm skin tones and really makes a netural look pop.

I'm a NC30 girl and I really don't know what drew me to this blush but I like this blush on me. I don't alwase want pink cheeks. The shimmer is not that bad.

I am NW50 in MAC Studio Fix and read many reviews on this blush. I purchased it and it did absolutely nothing for me. The color barely showed, only the shimmer which made my cheeks look "ashy". I returned it and bought MAC Raizin blush instead.

I bought this purely on the reviews on MUA and I was very skeptical because it's been hit and miss lately. When the blush arrived it looked scary in the pan but I know it had great reviews for a reason! For ref I'm NC42 and this is a bronzy with slight coppery red undertones with barely there shimmer. I agree with the other reviewers that this would be a fantastic summer blush especially when you're tanned. I'm wearing it now and it can double as a bronzer for my tone. I use a very light hand with this using my Real Techniques blush brush over my bronzer-mineralized skinfinish in Dark and it creates such a beautiful subtle bronzed look on my cheeks. I'm very glad I got this and can't wait to wear it in the summer with my tan!

I'm a natural nc40 and get darker in the summer. This blush is like a bronzer and blush in one. But it's not golden or orangey toned like a lot of bronzers are. It looks just like cocoa powder like you would use to make mocha. It has a pretty sheen and really enhances medium tan to deep skin tones. I like wearing Creme d Nude lipstick and neutral eyes with it for a sexy nude look. It looks best paired with other brown and nude hues of makeup on me.

This takes the honor of being the first MAC blush that does not look good on me. On me, it looks exactly like powdered chocolate, the subtle ashy color included. It makes me look dirty and muddy. Unnatural. I tried to apply this lightly and it didn't look good either. On the positive note, this looks great on darker skin colors, it compliments it beautifully. I gave to a friend of mine who's an NW50 and it looks gorgeous on her. I'd say anyone w/ NC50+ can rock this as an everyday blush easily.

Bought this blush after readingg the reviews on MUA and it is worth the hype. Great bronze with slight pink undertones for women of color (I am an nc50 and this blush highlights and contours giving my face a beautiful lift! I keep reaching for this blush everyday no matter the occasionn or eyeshadow because it is so versatile. Lovejoy has nothing on this blush!

Before I bought my first blush, I did lots of research and ended up getting MAC LoveJoy. I read the great reviews on Sweet As Cocoa, but wasn't sure. I finally ordered it. It' soooo perfect! I've been looking for something pretty and nuetral and this is it. When I first put it on, it looks like it's too much but as my skin oils mix and settle, I get the prettiest glow. I'm NW44, and this is exactly what I've been looking for for an everyday subtle look. I also have NYX Cocoa and NYX Terra Cotta which was said to be dupes for Sweet As Cocoa but that is so not true.

Im a blush girl....love it, can't be without it. I usually go for the brighter colors, but I put this on my list after the great reviews by MUA gals. When the MA put it on me we both gasped....it is so beautiful, soft and bronzy on my skin. Totally changed my look. The red undertones are what you see mostly with the softest, slightest shimmer. One of my favorite Summer blushes. I won't be without this blush ever again.

This is my HG blush, its been a fav of mine now for 4 years. Its like a blush and bronzer in one. I love it but I didn't feel like it had quite the cult following I feel it deserved so I was surprised to see how much others love it too. Right now 93% would buy it again. Sweet as Cocoa is definitely on the darker side so I wouldn't recommend it for people with very fair skin, I am an NC35 with MAC and it looks great on me. It's not just for people with darker skin. This blush is especially great for Summer but because I live in FL, I wear it year round. It gives me sculpted looking cheekbones. Just a tip here: It does give a sheen so I don't recommend putting it on your forehead, I use a matte bronzer like Estee Lauder Bronzed Goddess for that and for under the chin. This blush will continue to be a fav of mine for years to come!!

Wow, I don't know how I didn't write a review for this yet. I am about NC45 and this color is gorgeous on me! Its a berry color with a hint of shimmer. It really makes my cheeks pop. Very flattering on darker skin tones and very wearable. I can wear it to class or going out.

I received this blush in a swap and immediately fell in love with the color. Unfortunately, the blush has a weird smell and I just cant use it anymore. It must have been old or something, but I just repurchased another for my palette because it is an awesome color for DDD! Go get this, you won't be disappointed. By the way, I'm a NW45/ NC50 in Studio Stick.

This was my first MAC blush and I really really like it. I am a NW50 and was soooo hesitant to wear a blush because I honestly thought that darker skinned dark skins would not look right with blush. I found myself wrong! This blush is soo pretty. It's a brown with a pink shimmery undertone and I really like it. The only problem I had was that it irritated my cheeks with a lot of itiching when I applied it with my studio fix powder plus foundation. So the combination of the two really irritates my skin, however, when alone or without studio fix I don't experience that itching sensation....

Oh and did I mention I love this blush?? BUYY!
