Most Helpful Positive Review Powder Blush
I think MAC by far has THE BEST BLUSH. The colors go on sheer and smooth. It requires very little. I know you shouldn't keep makeup for more than several months, but this blush lasts forever. I used the same blush at least 5 times a week and after a year it still hardly looked used. I know that sounds crazy, but it is true. I will never use another brand. It is top notch.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not great for sensitive skin
I use MAC foundation (Matchmaster) daily -- after realizing how amazing these products are, I added MAC Powder Blush in Springsheen & Longwear Bronzing Powder in Sun Dipped. My skin reacted terribly and I had breakouts throughout the areas I used only these products (cheeks and along jawline for contouring). Wish they both would have worked, as both were great products & had great color, they just didn't work for my skin type. Mac, please reconsider your ingredients for these products, I'd love to use them!

the pigmentation was beautiful, but i had to put too much product to build it up. stick with the tarte blush, it's much creamier and easier to apply.
Natural Buildable Color
Nessa from WA
This blush can be a soft wash of color or built up for a more dramatic look. Works perfectly with my skin tone.
Morgan from Knoxville, TN
Loved the color for my fair skin.
I love this Mac blush. It came so quickly, that was a wonder

I own 17 powder blushes from MAC among all 5 finishes and I really love them! Mattes will always be my favorite and I like how pigmented they are (some of them I have to use my softest fluffiest natural hair brushes so I don't overdo it with that formula). The sheertones and sheertone shimmers I can use with any brush and they give the perfect amount of color. Frost finishes intimidated me at first because I assumed they'd be silvery and ashy looking on my complexion, but some have gold pearl and even the regular pearl looks so flattering. These shades deepen up on the skin so I can wear colors I normally would expect to be too light. And I would say that's my one complaint about the website. The shades look a bit different than the color in the pan and those model photos are at angles to look beautiful but so many of them don't show what the actual color looks like on the skin. Some of them (particularly on the darker models) I can't even see the blush on their skin because the cheeks aren't even in the forefront of the pictures. That's why I had to buy so many of them!
There are plenty of gorgeous shades, some VERY similar to each other but in different finishes or slightly lighter or darker. So, just be wary of that.
Also, my least favorite finish are the satins. I had so much trouble using modern mandarin. That one gets hardpan repeatedly. They don't apply as smoothly to my brush. It's like it's a creamier formula so it drags my brush in the pan. It doesn't happen to me with Fleur Power or Loudspeaker (also listed as satins) but Modern Mandarin is like that.
Anyway, I normally despise shimmery blushes but I love the ones MAC created, which is a testament to how well done they are.
Too rough to use.
Dana from Michigan
This shade is so beautiful. However I have noticed that after every use, the top becomes extremely hard and dry. I literally cannot pick up any product on a brush because the top layer of the product is literally hard and rough. If I want to use this, I have to use a palette knife to scrape off the hard top layer. Not only does it make using this blush messy and time consuming but it's also a waste a product. I only use a clean, dry brush when using this product to be this way. I have only noticed this happening with MAC's matte blush formulas. None of my shimmer blushes do this.
Oldie but a goodie

I like the color. Good for Summer. Mac never disappoints me!
Chicaloca from San Antonio, Tx
This blush dried up instantly. It's as hard as a rock and has no pigmentation. I can barely get any color off it even with several applications. Very disappointed.
Why have I never tried these!!!
Beckysee13 from Moreno Valley, CA.
I'm a sucker for a good buildable blendable bright blush and these are like... WOW!!! I love blush and I love a good pretty texture to brighten the apples of my cheeks; these are that. The mattes and the sheens are sooo pretty, I'm for sure buying these again.
I routinely purchase this.
Myra Elisa from Los Angeles, California
I'm in love with M•A•C pressed powder blush. I've used the same color over 10 years and it is always perfectly flawless.
Packaging was horrible!
Horrible Packaging from California
Packaging on the blush was horrible! Upon opening the item, the little plastic cover was missing leaving the product extra flaky! When opening the blush, the blush falls out of the pan, very annoying! I've always liked PeachyKeen, it's one of my top 3 from MAC but unfortunately, this one was just not packaged right!
Love this blush
Deborah from Alabama
It looks great

It's a beautiful neutral blush. A little goes a long way. Perfect for medium-dark complexion. My clients LOVE It.
Trese from Midwest, USA
I like that it is subtle and buildable. Product does not get wasted by too much being added to makeup brush.
Butterflyblu from Warren, MI
I have been using Mac Blushes for years. You can never go wrong the colors are beautiful and they are long lasting. I love Melba, for me it adds a little sass! I also use Peachykeen and Springsheen.
Malba Perfect Shade
B from Lafayette
Malba was the perfect shade for me. I'm fair to medium skin tone. Not too peachy or too pink. I have not experienced any of the hardness that anyone spoke of. The time I have ever gotten that with any powder is when I have applied and gotten the brush wet. Love it, my new go to.
Not too pigmented but great
Liyah from Don't worry bout it
Great for dark skin, not too much pigment so you'll have to keep reapplying, which is good if you don't like a heavy blush. However, it's buildable so that's cool
Pretty_Aggie from Rocklin, CA
Loved the blush formula. The color was too dark for me personally. Actually wanted Melba but accidentally order dessert rose
Tonias84 from Sacramento
I enjoy these powder blushes that are buildable and long wear. They have something for everyone.
Simply the BEST!
Trobinson from Atlanta, Ga
I started using this product several years ago, I switched a few times and even tried drug store brands. Nothing compares! It's my absolute favorite! The color is beautiful without being too harsh. Definitely a staple
Don't waste your money
Alex from Washington
I purchased this blush because the department store was out of Nars Orgasm, my usual choice. I loved the color and was initially happy with the product, but after only a few weeks of light use, the compact broke in my make up bag. When I went to the department store to ask if I could purchase a refillable compact to replace the broken one, she directed me to an independent Mac store. I went to the Mac store and they informed me that I would not only need to purchase a refillable compact but also watch a YouTube video to learn how to replace it because it wasn't meant for a blush like this and that the process involved heating the compact to melt the glue holding it forget, etc. Long story short, I've learned my lesson and will continue to shop exclusively at another national make up chain that has a stellar reputation for standing by their products and replacing broken or faulty ones.
