I have the colour in Hush, which is a peach with a golden sheen in the pot, but when swatched, it's a very subtle light peach sheen.
The Packaging: Standard MAC, very similar to blushes just a lot smaller. You get 3.2g.. I think. My sticker's ripped.
The only issue is that it is quite pricey for what you get, as I've had this for about a month and I've already got a significant dent. But honestly, I think it's worth it.
The Purpose: These are multi-purpose cremes, and due to the range of colour, can be used for different things. There are darker ones i.e. Virgin Isle which are more of a creme blush, but this one and ones like Shell and Pearl, are usually meant for highlight. Some CCB's you can use on your eyes or lips, but this you have to check on the instructions as some CCB's aren't recommended for anything other than your face.
The Formula: Amazing. This is nowhere near as slippery and wet as the creme blushes, and are more like paintpots, just a little bit drier. It's the right consistency to just take on your finger and pat on as highlight. It lasts for ages, and makes your blush last for a very long time as well.
The Highlighting Colours: Shell and Pearl are more white-based colours which are excellent for highlighting for pale to medium skin tones. They are also more versatile because you can use them as eyeshadow bases and any colour will work on them. Same with blush, any colour blush will work with these 2 on the cheeks.
Hush, on the other hand, being a more peachy pink colour when applied, is an excellent highlight for everyone, maybe except for the palest of the palest. Medium skin-tone people are perfect for Hush, as it is so so subtle yet beautiful. However, it's less versatile in terms of the eyeshadow and blush that you can use for it. It looks amazing with my NARS Sin, which is more of a purply pink mauve, but not that great with my MAC Style which is more coral, because it contrasts with the pink of the CCB. It has more limitations than Shell and Pearl, but also has the advantage of being extremely day-wearable, subtle and elegant. Not that I'm biased..
I think the rest of the colours are less suited for highlight but I may be wrong.. these 3 are the ones that I considered, looked-up and spoke to the MA about the most :)

Have any of you guys tried CCBs? If so, which one and how do you like it?
