Editor's Review

MAC Sweet As Cocoa Powder Blush ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum-brown with faint gold sparkle over a satin finish. Though this particular shade was labeled a "Sheertone Shimmer," I wouldn't describe it as sheer in terms of coverage; medium to semi-opaque coverage that was then buildable from there. The consistency was drier, slightly firmer in the pan, so if I used a lighter hand, I could get less coverage, but this is generally true of most powder product and less so that it is inherent in the formula. It was, though, "just enough shimmer" that gave it more of a natural sheen--glowing but not overtly shimmery--once buffed and blended on my cheeks. I didn't have any trouble diffusing the edges of the blush, which I worried about initially. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.

By Rosie 2 years ago.

This is a soft brown with a faint shimmer which makes a great natural looking blush for dark skin. This has a sheertone finish, so this will not build up to an opaque finish.
