    You deserve a cookie for this.

    I think something might be switched up at the end of this post. The swatch cards seem to be showing lipsticks, but the description I believe are for lipglasses, but this is the post for blushes. You must have your handsful trying to organize this all. Can’t tell you how grateful we all are! Yay Christine :)

    What a great resource.

    But yeah, I think the labels below the 2 cards are not right.

    I LOVE blushes so thanks for the swatches! I just love your website, I can find EVERYTHING what I want on it!

  11. sprut

    Do paint pots dry out?

  12. Al

    This is incredible. An amazing resource of MAC blush swatches! I am in the middle of filling up MAC blush palettes so I need all the help I can get from swatches. It also helps that we have similar skintones!

    thanks again

  13. Ash

    wow this is so helpful- to me, the pictures on the website never look like the actual product. and it is so nice to see the swatches right next to each other, it makes it easier to figure out which ones will work for my skin tone. thanks for all the hard work.

  14. Kristen

    Can anyone suggest a MAC shade of blush that is a good peach color for fair skin. Usually peaches turn out too orange or pink in tone on me….and I’ve already tried nars orgasm…it just looked like mid-tone pink red on me. suggestions?

  15. shaaayyy.

    hey.(:
    i think you are SO amazing and are the best resource for me., because the MAC website doesn’t always have accurate swatches.!
    but my question is, i really love corals and peaches and they make my face just glow beautifully..but my skin tone changes all the time because i almost get tanner every day in the summer..and paler everyday in the winter, so i need one great blush for Tan Shay and one great blush for Pale Shay, suggestions?

  16. neli

    thanx for the hardwork been wanting the indianwood for a long time am gald i wont be disappointed , ur the best!!

  17. Sixx

    I really appreciate this! Good reference. Could you possibly do swatches on the mineralized blushes too? :P

  18. carrie

    My God, woman, you made me want 10 other blushes and lipglasses!!!!!!1

  19. Meri

    Do u think Flirt n Tease, Loverush, Fever are suitable for fair skin (NC20-25) ?
    Thanks :)

  20. Brenda

    which mac blush do you think is good for me i am asian and around NC35-40. a good peachy blush &pinky one? (:

  21. Hi Christine!
    Do you depot your creme blushes? And if you have, were you sucessful?….cause the dummy I was, wasn’t successful, ahhaha. And the creme blush I ruined was ‘blossoming’, do you think its worth salvaging?
    Thanks.

  22. ee

    hey christine, which blushcreme would you recommend ladyblush or posey im torn between them.=/

  23. Phalia

    Thank you so freakin much!! I was about to buy laid back online not realizing how dark it looks on actually skin. O.O Posey looks WAYYYY brighter then it dose on the web..Brit wit (the ugliest color online)looks the best on my skin tone. I owe you.

  24. lovelyd

    Would you say that ladyblush, lilicent, and posey are cool toned? They look so lovely but I’m warmed toned and cool toned things look ridiculous on me :,( recommendations?

  25. Vickie

    I love MAC blushes! whats a realy nice fall/winter color ?
    im a NW30 if that helps!

  26. CB

    I was just at the MAC counter and think Coppertone PERHAPS might be a similiar color…but I didn’t have the picture to compare. Argh, I hate having an ideal shade in mind and not knowing who makes it! :P

  27. Kai

    What would be a good blush for NW45 skin tone ?
    I currently own Raizin, but I am looking for a more Pink colored blush, any suggestions?

  28. Angelique

    Very helpful,thanks!

  29. Michelle

    never realized you’re half Vietnamese until reading your about us. i’m VNese living in Vietnam. can you speak VNese?
    i have a Chanel Rouge Allure in #87 Joyeuse and still looking for a blush that perfectly fits it. my face has redness so as you suggested a peachy one would be great. but does peachy blush go well with my Chanel? and which peachy blush should i try? i prefer MAC and NARS, no shimmer :)

  30. nicole

    Thank you soo much for this, the ladies at my mac store are rude and I need to know what to ask for.. Do you think that Well Dressed blush is pigmented enough to work on NC42 skin? Thanks!!

  31. hi! thanks  for the swatches. how do you think brit wit would look on a NW15 or nC20 ?
