The blush is certainly buildable and easy to apply, however, after about 4 hours it oxidizes to an unattractive orange color. It does this even when applied over foundation.

I use this as a contour shade. It looks perfectly natural because it is so subtle and blends so well! I love it and plan to buy an extra.

However, this is clearly only a contour shade for fair skin. It actually appears lighter than my skin tone when swatched on my wrist, but somehow turns into a perfect soft shadow color on my face. Makeup magic.

Full of Joy is such a pretty shade. It’s a pastel, cool lavender but it’s not stark or weird-looking on my skin. It would look good on cool skin tones of all shades.

Given by a friend with a lighter cooler skintone. It was instant love! For me it’s a cross between bronzer and blush, so it’s my quick go-to color especially for everyday colors.

On my NW35 skin this is not a blusher at all, but does work to help get that Jo Lo glow, the Miami bronzed glowing skin look on tan skin that is so pretty. It is a fairly sheer golden frosty powder and blends out easily, leaving a glowing gold look to the skin. I am not sure how it would look on a lighter skin tone, I think on medium to darker tones this would give a beautiful glow to the skin without a ton of actual color, just a light gold that will blend in well with the skin giving is radiance. It did emphasize pores a bit, it is shimmery and that is expected, but it worked well across my forehead, bridge of nose and cheekbones in place of bronzer. I will probably never use this enough to purchase again, but I am not sorry it is in my collection. I recommend for medium to dark skin tones, and will revise this if I ever get to use it on someone fair skinned and like it!

It’s a real shame that this blush isn’t permanent because it would be a huge hit and there must be loads of people who never got the chance to try it. It is almost terrifyingly bright in the pan but applied lightly and with a fluffy, soft brush, it gives the prettiest “walking in the cold” flush to the cheeks and looks unbelievably pretty against fair skin. Even though I’ve sort of migrated to Tarte and Bobbi Brown blushes, I am still so happy I have this beauty.

I love the Sheertone Shimmer finish from MAC and so had high hopes for this blush. It is powdery – when I pick up product with my brush, I can see bits of powder flying around – and it’s not very pigmented but it can be built up easily if you want a more dense shade. The fact that it’s not very pigmented helps it look natural but I find it doesn’t last as long as most of my other MAC blushes; it fades much more quickly.

Strada
Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

I have and have had only the regular blush version of Strada. I think it is more nude, with a touch of pink. Wonderful for contour for pale and light skinned ladies – just use light hand. The LE version of Strada seems to be a different formula as well as slightly different color.

I have a medium/ olive skintone with yellow undertones.
Although the colour of this blusher is fairly light, it does give a radiant peachy glow. I’ve been very impressed with all three blushers. This one in particular is subtle enough to wear every day with a brighter lipstick like Tangerine Dream.

This is a pretty colour! Gives a nice coral glow. Very impressed with all three blushers. This one in particular would work perfect with bronzer and the sushi kiss lipstick

Beautiful beautiful colour! So impressed with all three blushers. This one in particular gave a sweet girlie glow. Perfect!

I would reccommend this with razzledazzler or tart and trendy lipstick.

Desert Rose
Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

I have been lusting after this blush for a long time, and after getting it in my Christmas stocking, I have to say, I am in LOVE. “Desert Rose” as described by Mac is a matte soft reddish-burgundy. I wouldn’t say that it is quite as dark and dramatic as they make it seem, because when you apply it with a light hand it can be used on a wide variety of skin tones. I’m SUPERUBER pale and when this is applied and blended out on me it looks fantastic (which is something I rarely say). I would describe it more as a deep mauve rose, because it’s not as dark and frightening as it looks in the pan.

Because this is a matte blush, it doesn’t give off any sheen, however it is incredibly pigmented. A little bit of this goes a long way and literally requires just a DAB of your brush. This is my first mac blush, and although I’ve tried many other brands, this one has lasted the longest on my cheeks throughout the day. (Without having to look like a walking doll in the morning)

I strongly suggest that next time you’re at a mac counter, or a mac store to give this blush a try.
