This is a peach, very light coral with some gold and beige. It has alot of shimmer but it doesn't look like there is any glitter, which is good because i hate it when my face is a glittery mess. On my NC30-35 asian skin, this is an absolutely beautiful blush that gives me a beautiful glow. The shine i get from this is similar to a bronzer but the color is different from that of course. This has become one of my favorites that i have been afraid of using too much because it is a limited edition. Although i hear that on October 15, 2008 they're putting most of the limited edition mineralize makeup in the permanent collection--but you can never really know unless it truly does happen.
I have only recently started to try out light shaded blushes and this has really become one of my favorites.
I give this a five because of the way it makes my cheeks and the rest of my face glow, a 3 because its very inexpensive for the amount of product you get (the mineralize blushes and eyeshadows are raised so you get more for your money) and 5 for the packaging quality because i love items that you can carry with you or put in your purse or murse anywhere so you can touch up if you need to throughout the day.

Aply lightly.Uneven and too faint. Aply more, look in mirror...Hmmmm...I look like my grandma.This looked different under the Nordstrom lights. I even checked the name to see if the girl put the wrong color in the bag. I thought it was more nude, but its a coral orange that has hardly any shimmer on the shin. It made me look old, and wouldn't go with my makeup. Very unnatural on my med. Toned skin. I tried to give it to my grandma. She didn't want it. I'm sure it looks pretty on some skin tones. Not for me.It went back right away.

This is a beautiful blush. Although it looks somewhat orange and shimmery in the package, once applied it is neither orange nor shimmery. I am around NC30 and this blush looks like a gorgeous peachy-pink blush. The finish is very smooth and it applied evenly (I used EM's long handled kabuki brush), and it can be built up if you need more color. I have only applied it over foundation and pressed powder, and over that it lasts all day with no significant need for retouching. Also, although it is a bit pricier than the regular MAC blushes (I think just $3 more) it seems like it will last forever, even with everyday use. Still, I hope this LE does make a comeback :D

Love, love, love this blush! Being the MSF AND blush junkie that I am, you can imagine my excitement over the new Sonic Chic mineralize blush collection that this color was from. I wanted ALL the colors, but being on a limited budget I decided I would limit myself to ONE blush from this collection! I usually lean toward bright pinks like Sweetness from the BPB Collection, or Bobbi Brown Pale Pink. But I skipped Pleasantry and bought Dainty. Well, way too much like Nars Orgasm, but not nearly as nice. It was just too blah on my nc20 skin. So back to MAC I went to exchange it. But not before checking with the gals on MUA! After lots of recs for Nuance I thought I would give it a try. It's not something I would normally choose because it looked too, bronzy or something. But when I got it home I was in love! It has become my hg every day blush. It looks great with everything! It is just the most perfect peachy, slightly golden shade! Girls, if this color doesn't stand out to you at first, give it a try! It is so pretty on and I think you will really love it!

I love this blush.
If you are worried that these will be like MSFs, be more shimmer than colour, have really bad colour-pay off, take forever in applying or will serve as a spotlight for your pores, have no fear. I was you, and was planning on skipping this whole collection. If you are worried that this is a huge glitter or shimmer bomb, than have no fear.
I am the only person (in the world!) that hates MSFs. They are either chunky, glittery, or if they have fine shimmer, they don't have much payoff. They make my pores look huge :(. They make me cry. BUT, I was stopping in to pick up the lippies from electroflash and tried Nuance out.
Ah, the product easily came on to the brush.. Very unlike Warmed or Light Flush! It applied flawlessly, smooth, with no chunks or shimmer particles flying everywhere. On my cheek? A very subtle, pretty, GLOWING (and glowing not by shimmer, but by pearl). I cooed and applied another layer. It wasn't another layer of pearl, but a layer that had colour and sheen. It wasn't oily sheen, or sweaty sheen. I put it down calmly, walked around the mall for a few more hours to shop, spotted myself in mirrors, and took photos with a friends camera. Wow, it photographed well! A few hours later, it was still perfect (how it managed to do that when I live in a sauna, I am unsure) It didn't turn orange, and it wasn't streaky.
My first "shimmery" blush that wasn't returned or swapped.

lovely blush....im really feeling the sonic chic blushes they became my favourites i got nuance, pleasantry and dainty and i love all of them
nuance is very natural looking i wear it over golden bronzer
especially great during summer on my slightly (self) tanned skin

Nuance is a gorgeous subtle peach/nude/golden glow on me-for reference my coloring is NW25 hazel/brown-it is reminiscent in texture and finish to the Chanel Joues Contraste line of blushes-at half the price. I would compare the shade to Chanel's now discontinued Reflex shade in that line...it's similar but not an exact duplicate. it imparts a lovely natural glow to my cheeks and looks almost more like a natural bronzer shade, than a blush. lovely and subtle for summer. I have heard that 6 of the Sonic Chic blushes will be re-released as a permanent line in the fall, I am hoping this one is included in that group!

I love this blush--it shows up as a golden peachy color on my olive skin and it looks really natural. It also gives you a nice glow thanks to the glitter particles and makes you look like you've gotten a lot of rest. Looks really pretty with the Two to Glow Electro Flash mineralized eye duo.

This is my HG blush at this time. I love that it is great at building coverage and is so smooth on the skin. This is my favorite everyday blush now. It is so subtle and it is great in pictures!! These blushes are so awesome. A little pricey but it will last forever. They come in many colors to choose from! I heard these might be permanent later in the year but that maybe just a rumor.

I love this colour in concept but once applied to my face i look orange- not even like fake self-tanner orange but just orange. The below reviewers described the colours nicely for skin tones nw25 /nc30 and up..if you are a 15 or two fairest colours of any foundation, i highly recommend to try before you buy & check in the DAY LIGHT!!! because it's not so pretty..LOL i would suggest Dainty or warm soul for PPPs =)
Shimmer particles are present here -so if you don't have your blush techniques down,please let the MAs teach you !!! The glitter cannot be buffed into skin as this is the smallest particle, so please use 188/187 to avoid discoball look =)
i found my best blush for glow and for highlighting :Gold spill MSF & Lightscapade ,actually all MSFs are a million times better for PPP like moi!

gorgeous, warm, peachy color... im in love with the mineralize blushes from sonic chic... they are not even close to being as glittery as i feared they would be (as some of the MSFs are).. the shimmer is VERY subtle and all the colors are nice and buildable..
nuance is one of the colors that i think will work for almost every skin tone.. it gives you a gorgeous peachy glow that is not too overpowering.. looks good on fair skin, yet can work just as well with olive/tan/dark complexions (im NC40 for ref)... i apply it with a 187 brush and all it takes is one gentle swipe for it to pick up the color.. and thats pretty much all you need for it to enhance your complexion..
would definitely purchase again... especially in this color, as IMO it is the most versatile of all the shades in the collection... get yourself one before theyre gone ladies!

MAC's website describes the color as "mid tone peach with gold pearl." That pretty much sums it up. It is a nice color, but to me it doesn't seem special or new. It has a nice sheen to it, giving you a nice glow. It's not as bright as MAC's BPB Joyous (which I love), but i think Nuance is good for a good everyday peach color. I still have yet to compare it to Springsheen.
When I first saw the color I knew I had to have it, even though my review here seems to take on a subdued tone. I was more excited to get Sea & Sky e/s, which is absolutely beautiful and goes well with Nuance and a pink lip.
On my skin tone it doesn't seem to produce too much of an orange-y color, just pure peach. I think it does complement my skin tone (NC35) and features (black hair/eyes) and it doesn't dry out my cheeks (no blush really ever does on my cheeks).
So overall, a good everyday peach color. I probably wouldn't purchase again if I ever lost it or broke it just because I can find a similar peach when they discontinue this one.
