MAC Quite Cute Mineralize Blushes

This review covers the 3 MAC Quite Cute Mineralize blushes: Giggly, Sakura, and Miss Behave.

  • Giggly (frost): light pink with pearly plum heart
  • Sakura (frost): lavender with pearly deep magenta heart
  • Miss Behave (frost): light beige with pearly mint green heart

Packaging: 9.25/10

These blushes come in standard MAC compacts. They are lightweight plastic with see-through lids. The compacts are durable and portable. Plus, these blushes have an adorable heart in a contrasting color in the middle of the blush.

Quality: 8.25/10

Giggly comes off as a mid-toned, bright pink on the cheeks. Sakura looks like a mixture of lavender and light pink on the skin. And Miss Behave is a barely noticeable light beige with very subtle shimmers.

The stand-out of the three blushes is definitely Sakura. It’s an interesting pink/purple combination and is far more unique than the other two blushes. Giggly is also good, but it’s just not that special–there are a lot of pink blushes out there like it. Miss Behave is by far the downfall in this line. You really can’t see it, even on my light NC20/25 skin. It would work as a very subtle highlighter, but that’s all.

Aside from the colors, these blushes applied great. They all have shimmers, but the effect isn’t overwhelming on the skin and the color stays on all day.

Ease of Use: 9/10

I had no trouble applying these blushes, aside from the fact that Miss Behave just doesn’t show up on the skin as a blush. I’d recommend using a large, fluffy, rounded blush brush to apply.

Price: 8.25/10

Regular Mineralize blushes are $22.00 and give you 0.10 oz of product. The blushes in this collection are $23.00, I assume because of the heart design in the middle. I think it’s a little silly to charge an extra dollar for the design. $22.00 itself is a little steep, even for a good blush.

    I like Sakura on you and I’ve got that on hold at my local MAC counter 😀

    And now I want Giggly, because your lovely face makes me think it will be perfect! It does help kill the craving for Sakura though, since I already tried the sort of purplish/lavender cheek look with Briar Rose from the Venomous Villains collection!
