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