This is a very beautiful, completely matte, bright medium rose shade. It's comes off as a natural flush. You do need a bit of a light hand with it as it's so pigmented. It reminds me of a less pink NARS Amour. I actually went in to buy MAC Fleeting Romance but I thought this was more flattering. This was less pink and brighter.

This is such a beautiful color!!! It goes on smooth and has great staying power, you just have to be careful to shake of your brush because it is quite pigmented.

This is my absolute favorite blush! Mac and I usually don't get along when it comes to skin products (I break out), but this is the amazing exception! Looks so beautiful against my fair skin and it takes a long long long time to run out. Perfect from anywhere to a light blush to a darker nighttime look. xoxo ~Katy

My very first MAC blush! i already owned some MAC products but i never really was into blushes. Sure i had other brand blushes such as Nyx & Milani but decided to buy a blush from MAC. I was a bit hesitant as 20$ for a blush is a tad expensive but i was like whatever i love makeup anyway, might aswell. I dont regret buying it because i absolutely adore it. It's EXTREMELY pigmented so when applying it, swipe/tap it gentle on to the apples of your cheeks. To me honestly it is more matte than sheer but its really pretty! I think it would suit darker skin tones but eithey way any one can pull it off depending and how much blush you apply to the brush if thats what you're using to apply it.

I always get a little too excited when I apply this on my cheeks! Upon application, I suddenly and remind myself, "girl use a light hand!" Though this is a sheertone blush, it is still quite pigmented. This color is a coral pink with slight brown tone to it and it is absolutely beautiful for medium and tan skinned girls (for reference I am an NC 42). The first time it caught my eye, it was sold out and when I checked another Mac counter, they were fortunate to have it in stock. Two weeks later and it was definitely worth the wait and hype. When light coverage, it gives this pinched appearance and appears very natural on my skin. It also looks beautiful with more application for a nighttime look because the color is not overpowering. I wear it when I look in the mirror first thing in morning and think, "damn you need color!" This blush compliments any look and I love it for doing that.

This was my first blush from MAC. I've tried foundations, concealers, bronzers, powders, lipsticks and concealers when I bought this. I wanted something natural and pretty for everyday. I wear an NC37 in studio fix fluid, NC40 in powders and for my everyday foundation which is face and body, I wear C3. I am in LOVE with this colour. It is sheer toned but quite pigmented anyway, so apply it with a light hand. I use this everyday and mixed with F&B it just gives this skin a beautiful flush and a nice glow. Don't be fooled by the colour in the pan, when on the skin it transfers to a beautiful rosy red colour that mimics being naturally flushed. Love it!

This is a beautiful blush from Mac! This is my first Mac blush, and it has become my favourite. It is easy to blend and leaves the cheeks with a beautiful rosy, naturally flushed appearance. I use a small stipple brush (ELF) to lightly apply, then blend. I feel like this blush can easily be overapplied if used with a heavy hand because it is quite pigmented, so I use a light hand and layer up until I'm happy with the result. The packaging is sleek and compact, which I love. I feel like this will last me ages since I don't use a lot, but since I got this, I'm dying to try out more shades!

Pinch Me was my first MAC blush--at first I didn't like it all that much because it's a rosy/brick red, but I've found that application is key to achieving a more natural look. I'm glad I gave Pinch Me a shot- it is a lovely shade that is pretty similar to a natural flush. It isn't pink or orange in the least, just a neutral, red-ish shade that is an absolute classic. It's a sheertone, but one of the more pigmented ones. If applied with a heavy hand, it is too clownish looking, so you only need to lightly tap your brush-you'll get just enough pigment-then lightly tap off excess. Blending is key after applying to the apples of your cheeks. I love the look I get with this - very classic and glam. I usually only wear Pinch Me at night or during fall/winter, or when I wear minimal eye makeup (I am NC35). I either accentuate my eyes or cheeks/lips, but not both--it makes for a more balanced look. Pinch Me looks great paired with black eyeliner and/or red lipstick, or minimal eye makeup. For daily wear, or with done-up eyes, I reach for Blushbaby (pink/beige sheertone) and opt for either Pinch Me or Fleur Power (pink/coral satin) at other times, depending on what look I'm going for. Overall, I'm very happy with Pinch Me and would recommend it to others.

Love it! I was looking for a blush colour that would be a peachy-pink on my complexion (which is NC 25-30) and I've found it. I prefer sheertone blushes because they are easier to blend than the matte ones, but the ones I'd tried previously don't last very long on my oily skin. Since this colour is a nicely pigmented sheertone, it lasts all day AND blends well during application. Perfect! As always, I don't like the way MAC package their blushes- I wish there was a mirror!!!

What a pretty color. A MAC artist recommended this blush, as I was playing around with colors. What I was originally looking for was a peach tone blush. I am super happy that he did recommend it for me. For a sheertone blush, its pretty pigmented. It doesn't have any simmer, which I am totally fine with. I am not a shimmer kind of girl. I'm not much of a pink kind of girl either, but Pinch Me is perfect on my NC40 skintone. I can imagine it's going to look nice post summer tan, as well.
