For MAC AMBERING ROSE is a Muted Rose but on my NC42 skintone it comes as a flattering Burnt Orange with characteristic sheertone shimmer formulas minuscule gold shimmers. But then this shade is quiet intricate with prominent red undertones & golden sheen brewed with hint of Rose/Pink which does complicate across skintones. Having said that, this is a super flattering shade for medium-dusky skintones whereas for paler tones might accentuate the reddishness of skin. The texture undoubtedly is lovely –soft & smooth without kicking up any excess stuff around followed up with medium to buildable pigmentation & good wear power. Sheertone Shimmer formula is most user-friendly & accommodating as far their powder blushes are concerned. Ambering Rose wears for good 8 hours on me before fainting down from the edges. It blends seamlessly without any issues.
It comes in standard MAC Blush packaging as a sleek black circular case with see through lid.
