MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush

MAC Florida Cremeblend Blush ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “bright coral” on the press release, but between you and me, that’s completely wrong. When it was originally launched in MAC in Lillyland, it was described as a “bright fuchsia,” which is so much more accurate. It is a brightened, light-medium fuchsia pink with strong blue undertones. MAC Overdyed is similar but slightly darker. MAC Amazon Princess is also very similar, perhaps a touch less pink. MAC Her Blooming Cheek has a bit more of a sheen but the color comes close.

Unlike the permanent range of Cremeblend Blushes, this is a much more intense color, so while those neutral shades were easy to use and impossible to overdo, I recommend a light hand and/or a stippling brush with this shade! It’s intensely pigmented, so a little goes a long way–use less than you think you’d need. It’s easier to build up the color than it is to tamp down the intensity once it’s applied.

Cremeblend Blush has an interesting texture that’s creamy but slick; it’s not thick like a traditional cream blush; it almost feels like a gel or cheek stain in feel, but it applies and looks like a cream blush. Once applied, it has a natural sheen but no shimmer. I re-tested the wear of Florida earlier this week, and it wore for seven hours before it began to fade.

I like the lightweight texture of Cremeblend Blushes, and the natural slip they have makes these very easy to spread across the skin. It dries down to a soft sheen, so it doesn't look oily or dewy once applied.

  2. Katherine H.

    How would you compare this color and texture to Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Quickie?

  3. Florida was the cremeblend blush I wanted to pick up when I went to the MAC event, but the girl only gave me Restores Dazzle! Now I have to wait until next week to pick up the Florida blush! ):

    What??! Described as a “bright Coral”! It’s far from that, LOL! I bought Florida back when it launched in the Lillyland collection and I definatley agree with you, it ‘s more of a “bright fuschia” color. It is a beautiful color on the cheeks especially to wear for Spring/Summer. Looks great on you too! What lip color are you wearing it with it looks lovely and springy! XX

  6. MORENA

    is this also from the mac shop/cook collection

  7. Aleena

    What’s on your lips I love it!

  8. Courtney

    It looks very pretty and natural, but I avoid cream blushes since I wear powder foundations.

  9. Joanne

    Very nice on you and perfect for anyone who aims to have that tell-tale, post-frisky-activities glow ;)

  10. starchild

    I honestly just want it because I live in Florida! Because the color is really not that interesting xD

    nice
    looks gorge on you :D i like that pic

  12. Toni

    Is this really different from the magenta CCB

  13. Kristy

    HOT PINK, not coral.

    I bought three of these from a previous release and they dry up quickly and do not remain creamy at all. Unless you’re going to use them in large quantities daily, I don’t think they’re a good buy because they don’t stay creamy long.

    Looks lovely on you! Love the colour, i’m looking for that one in a powder blush, got myself Pink Swoon but it doesn’t give enough colour….like but it’s to light. Can you give me any tips in one?

  15. I love that heavy swatch!

  16. annabelle

    your eyes are soooooooooo pretty! hahaha

    Would you recommend this for NC35/NC40 skin tone? I’m wondering if I can pull it off, it’s such a pretty color!! Christine, what lipstick are you wearing in your pic? Love it!!!

  19. I cannot wait to get my hands on this as I LOVE bright blushes. May be getting a backup of this one.

  21. Interesting that the swatch pic looks almost like a powder blush! This is such a pretty shade!

  22. Emily

    Would you say this color is similar to Urban Decay Afterglow in Quckie?

  23. Kristen

    I feel like I need to buy this just because I live in Florida. Love the color too.

  24. Sheila

    I have also heard that Illamasaqua’s Laid is also a dupe.

  25. Nancy

    My MUST HAVE item from this collection

  26. Juliana

    It’s so pretty on you! I think it makes your face really pop! You can wear brighter blushes well! a pretty color and I think I wanna get it!!

  27. Looks like it would pull more pink than purple on. But it’s really pretty.

  28. Dannii

    Hey Christine, how comparable are these to UD Afterglow Glide on tint in Quickie and Crush?

  29. Avatar of Tiffany Tiffany

    Hi Christine,

    I just bought the Florida color last week, what would you recommend using for the application of the blush? I usually only use powder blushes.

  30. Nancy

    Christine,
    What is the best way or how do you apply cream blush? Also, do you apply then set with powder or apply on top of powder?
    I got this but I’m nooby with cream blushes and I find myself looking clowney :(
