MAC Harmony Powder Blush Matte Review + Swatch
Here's a review on MAC Harmony Powder Blush Matte.

Bought From: Sephora, Ion Orchard, Singapore
Other Locations: Available in all MAC counters; MAC Online
I was dead set at purchasing a new contouring powder when I was in Singapore and dead set at finally purchasing MAC Tantone, a MAC powder blush that I've been lemming for for years now. Heart was broken when I found out that it was discontinued already when I inquired at MAC Sephora, Ion mall. To those who are not familiar with Tantone, it's a midtone taupe-brown and is one of the BEST contouring shades for me--a makeup artist friend used it on me when he did my makeup one time for this play that I was in sometime in 2008 and I thought it was really flattering-I've searched high and low for it, but never got my hands on it ever until it got discontinued. Oh, the agony!
But I did not come unprepared. I had a back-up shade in mind just in case Tantone was OOS (it was worse though as it's discontinued already!) and that's MAC Harmony. I encountered MAC Harmony in one of the counters here in Manila and I thought it was a lovely contouring shade-it's always OOS in Manila and luckily, it was available in SG and I bought it! :)
Now I have one of MAC's most popular contouring powder shades. I like it and I've been using it a lot because it gives my face soft, natural- looking shadows, and it's also VERY friendly to morena skin tone.
MAC HARMONY POWDER BLUSH MATTE IN DETAIL
MAC's cult favorite powder blush comes in the following variants: Matte, Sheertone, and Sheertone Shimmer. Harmony comes in a matte formula, MAC's most pigmented formula in the powder blush roster.

Harmony is a nude beige blush with a slight red undertone. I've seen swatches of it on fairer skin tones and generally, it comes off pinkish and ends up being a blush rather than a contouring powder on them, thus I believe it's better off on darker skin tones, if intended for contouring.
Depending on the color, MAC's matte blush can be VERY pigmented and Harmony is a good example, but good thing that the powder quality is fine, therefore it more or less ends up looking natural on the cheeks.
MAC HARMONY POWDER BLUSH MATTE IN ACTION
I applied Harmony sparingly on my contour line-I hope you can see it! :D I love that it's not too dark and not too light, not too orange and not too brown. In general, MAC's blushes are pretty long- wearing and I am glad that the formula has remained.
If you're a morena or you have dark skin, Harmony is one of the contouring powder shades that I will recommend in a heartbeat because I believe it is designed to not only flatter, but enhance such skin tones too! ;) I just wish that we have more stocks of this blush locally so I don't have to panic in case I hit the pan on mine! :p
