There are 3 new, limited-edition Mineralize Blushes releasing with MAC’s Divine Night Collection:
- Talk of the Town: Warm brown base with yellow bronze (Satin)
- Lured to Love: Coral pink base with pink frost (Satin)
- Lavish Living: Violet with silver pearl base with gold pearl (Satin)
This review is for Lured to Love.
These Mineralize Blushes come in standard MAC packaging except that the MAC logo is gold. The compacts are plastic and have flip-up, snap-shut lids. The pans are domed. The blushes in this collection cost $2.50 more than regular Mineralize Blushes.
Lured to Love is a soft, yellow-based peach with a satin finish that leaves a slight sheen to the skin. This blush has a smooth and creamy formula, although being baked means it kicks up a lot more powder when the brush hits the pan than blushes normally do. So, while the formula is good, the color is hard to match with anything darker than light skin. I’m NC20 (barely NC25 in the summer), and it took 2 heavy layers/3 normal layers to get this color to show up. And it’s a shade that will lighten my skin as opposed to giving it a tinted flush of color.
This blush would work for porcelain or fair skin and would pair well especially with people who have warm/yellow undertones, but on people with darker skin, this color will take layering and won’t give you the typical flush. You also have to be careful to really buff this formula in, especially when using multiple layers, because it can emphasize any uneven texture you have (bumps, pores, or scars).
And, given the steaper $27.50 price tag, you might as well purchase one of MAC’s regular Mineralized Blushes.
