First mineralize blush I ever bought, and I use it all the time. It's my go to blush, love the color of this blush and the shimmer.
I bought two -- right away. I love how this blush looks on me.. it is a soft soft mauvey pink with slight slight sheen... perfect for summer/spring looks.
the texture is smooth and soft and glides on and stays on.. it is gorgous.
I haven't fallen in love with a blush for about two weeks..lol.
This is a very lightweight blush with a pretty pink shimmer colour. I find that a little colour goes a long way. If I put too much on my brush I start to look like a barbie doll with my light skin colour. Made me break out when I first started using it, but anything with shimmer does this. Would buy it again.
I love the shimmer on this blush and the raspberry color is true to swatch, for once. It's muted by still there. I guess I prefer more subtle blushes. This didn't wear as long as the other Mac blushes I've tried, but it wore away evenly. A great buy.
I actually purchased this one in a hurry, when I went into MAC to change another blush I had bought. I am so glad that I actually picked this one up as it is a lovely blush! It goes perfect with my skin tone. Also I dont need to keep putting layers of blush on, a little goes a long way with my fair skin!
This is a really natural looking product, I really hate purple toned blushes but this plumcolored one really catched my eye. I still love it after the first time I bought it and I keep reaching for it day by day. It's one of my HG blushes :) I love it with my #187 brush
really like this blush nice natural flushed colour would highly recommend it.
I have very sensitive skin and have always had a problem finding a blush that would not break me out... well I finally found one!! I love all of MAC's Mineralized blushes!! They come in a pressed power formula and have great pigmentation!! They also have a very light sparkle which gives your skin a fresh look... I highly recommend this blush to everyone but especially those with sensitive skin!!
I'm in LOVE with this blush! The Mineralize Blush in Gentle is a violet-pink, iridescent blush with a very subtle gold shimmer to it. However, don't let the shimmer scare you. On the skin, it simply warms the color up and gives it life on the skin. Plus, if you are seriously iridescent-averse, loose powder on top completely tones it down to a matte finish.
I was a bit concerned about the fact that this appeared a bit purple in the pan. I was worried that I would have violet cheeks. However, once applied, it turned into a lovely flushed, just-in-from-the-cold pink. Not over-the-top at all. I have very fair skin (NC15), which is on the cool side but basically very neutral. I tend to turn things pinker or purpler, but corals go orange on me. This became a very clear, natural pink that I fell in love with.
It blends quite well...no blotching. My application method is to pat across my cheekbones and then blend out. I will say that as I blend, the color intensifies a bit, so go lightly and build as needed. Those of you who like skunk brushes may want to start with one of those. I personally never have luck with the skunks, and had no problem with a traditional blush brush. I just tapped it lightly on the blush surface and then blew off the excess and applied from there.
This should be a fantastic pick for cooler skin tones, especially fair and light girls, and possibly medium. I can't speak to those of you who are warmer, as I don't know how it will morph, but next time you hit the MAC counter, I highly recommend you try it out...you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Will definitely repurchase should I ever run out, which is somewhat unlikely. Price on this is $22, which even for a department store brand, in my opinion, is somewhat pricey (.11 oz versus NARS at $26 for .18 oz), but it isn't up there with Chanel ($42 for .14 oz), either. For MAC, it seems REALLY pricey, since they are usually on the lower end of the HE spectrum price-wise. Judging from how little I have to use, it should last quite some time, so hopefully that will help defray the cost. Either way, it's such a great color for me, it's worth the splurge!
This is very cool toned. I do not use this often because I much prefer Nars Sin. I can see it looking nice on other people but it did not work for me. I would not repurchase.
