Yes, yes, yes I know this blush looks insanely scary in the pan! However, it is a sheertone blush by Mac. I love the feeling of this blush, very silky, and yet very finely milled. I love the sheer tone blushes because you can get the great shade of color very light, or as bright as it is in the pan. It does not look bad on my very pale skin tone. I am able to wear this bright shade by just using it like I would a normal blush. The sheer tone blushes are very buildable though. So dont get disapointed if you wanted the exact color in pan, go ahead and layer!!!! The packaging is super sleek and gorgous. I love the glossy black compact is comes it. Very user friendly!
