Company’s Description

Baked minerals refined into a powder formula to provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. Veils and enhances the cheekbones with a luminous, pearlized shimmer.

This review is for the 3 new Mineralize Blushes releasing with MAC’s upcoming Naturally Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Subtle Breeze: Blue-pink
  • Fresh Honey: Warm apricot
  • Early Morning: Peachy pink


Bailey Button in Fall Colors Available now

Packaging: 9/10

These blushes come in standard MAC packaging. The compacts are plastic and have flip-up, snap-shut lids.

Quality: 9.5/10

Subtle Breeze is a cool-toned, blue-based pink. Fresh Honey is a warm, orange-toned apricot. Early Morning is a reddish pink that does not show peach tones, as MAC claims.

All 3 colors have good pigmentation. MAC’s Mineralize formula looks quite beautiful on the skin and the blushes’ tiny shimmers leaves a subtle sheen.

The formula is soft, which makes it glide easily over the skin. But these blushes are quite dusty, so expect to see a lot of fine powder swirled about in the air when you use them.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

Because the formulation is smooth, application is easy and the colors go on evenly, giving strong color to the skin. You can layer to build up the vibrancy, or keep it sheer.

Price: 7.75/10

These blushes cost $22.00 and contain 3.2 g each. Regular powder blushes are $19.50 and contain 6 g of product each. It’s typical for mineralize products to be slightly more, but this is a huge discrepancy between product size and price.

    I think fresh honey will look amazing on my dark skin. It would lighten up my cheeks and make for a great highlighter. I really like early morning but I don’t know about that red. It reminds me of exhibit a by nars. Speakin of nars, do you ever review Nars cosmetics??

    I love all 3, but the blue-pink one (Subtle Breeze I think? I’m so lazy, I can’t be bothered scrolling up haha) is even more gorgeous than the other 2. I absolutely love Mac’s mineralized blushes and skin finishes so I’m really excited about getting my hands on these! :D

    Thanks again,
    Sarah(:

    Wow, is Early Morning reddish…I’m not even seeing much pink, much less peach…and Fresh Apricot is pretty strongly orange! I guess though, they always have peachy-pinks/corals, so they decided to go with something different this time. I keep hoping the mineralize blushes will be less dusty, but I guess that’s just what happens with baked items…and I’m glad this batch isn’t crazy shimmery/sparkly like some of the other collections!
