MAC’s Mineralize blushes are a magpies dream! They are pigmented and reflect light in a gorgeous way, so of course I have bought a few of them over time.
The only disadvantage that they had was that I didn’t use them very frequently because they used to hid in my drawer. Now that they have been depoted (onto a Dome Z-palette) I expect that they will be used much more and that some other Mineralize blush might join them!
As you can see from the picture above, the Mineralize products are baked on top of a terracotta pan. So in order to store them in a free-form palette like the Z-palette, I attached metal stickers to them (and their labels as well!).
The four Mineralize blushes that I currently own are:
- Amber Glow, is a blush that was launched in the Apres Chic collection in Spring 2013. It was described as a warm peach, and it is a very beautiful mix of pink and peach with a luminous finish and golden reflection. It blends really well and is quite light, so sometimes I have used it as a highlighter.
- Lavish Living, is a blush that was launched in the Divine Night collection for Holiday 2013. It is a plum blush with golden and silver shimmer, which gives it a metallic quality.
- Petal Power, this is a blush that was launched as part of the Fantasy of Flowers collection in Spring 2014. It is a warm pink, or perhaps coral, with gold shimmer. If you buff it in it is quite metallic, stunning!
- Talk of the Town, was also part of the Holiday 2013 Divine Night collection. This blush is a shimmery dusty rose colour. Unfortunately, the texture of this one is grittier and it does not apply as smoothly as the others. However, as it does not give much colour but more of a sheen, it does not become much of a problem.
I have also seen the much affordable Milani Baked Blushes being compared to these and being given very good reviews, so they are also an option if you fancy trying the formula!
