MAC Ambering Rose Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “muted rose.” It’s a burnished, rosy brown with gold shimmer. NARS Seduction is more burgundy, less warm-toned, but is somewhat similar applied. NARS Taos is slightly darker. MAC Hidden Treasure is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

It has good color payoff that’s buildable from sheer to mostly true-to-pan, opaque color.  The blush feels soft to the touch, but it’s not powdery.  It has a slightly stiffer texture, but it’s still blendable and fairly easy to apply to the skin.  The more it’s blended and buffed into the skin, the smoother the sheen becomes.  On my warmer complexion, it tends to take on a warmer, burnt (but in a good way) coloring, and I expect on cooler, pinker complexions, it may turn more of a rosy hue.  It lasted seven and a half hours when I wore it.  This shade was probably one of the first blushes I ever owned (the very first was MAC Margin).

Nice. I almost bought this. I already had Nars Taos and realized that the two were similar. This was when my blush collection was smaller, so I had a better knowledge of what was in my stash.

Would this suit nc42 skintone? I’m torn between this, sunbasque, margin and plum foolery! Any suggestions Christine? I wear plummy lipsticks so what blush should I get?
