I feel as though I tried every single blusher in MAC on today, trying to find one that worked with my skin tone but that didn't make me look ruddy faced! I have pale pink toned skin so it doesn't take much to get that effect. This colour is perfect, if I had been looking without SA help I would never have gone anywhere near it as it looks so purple, but by applying a light dusting it both brightens my face and adds shape to the cheekbones. Although MAC is one of the more expensive makes that I buy, this pot is so huge and you need such a little amount, I can't see me getting all the way through it for years.
Beautiful color, which can look quite intense if you're not applying it with a light hand and/or a stippling brush (187). I like the light gold shimmer – you don't need a highlighter with this. But, what really surprises me, is that after 16 months of neary daily use it looks like new! For comparison: my "normal" MAC-Blush is nearly empty after 1 year of use..
I love gentle. It is my HG . It is suitable with my yellow undertone and dry skin. Gentle is soft pink and a little purple. Love its texture and color. definitely repurchase ^^
Mac has one of those new fangled baked mineralized blushes. At least, they are new to me! I splurged on a purpley, mauve pretty color at Macy's. I, at the same time, got the brush that is a skunk? Perhaps 187 or 188. Something like that. The brush is excellent and picks up the pigment quite well on the MAC blush. You can build the coverage which I like. It doesn't grab at your skin and look like a botched mess! I'd like to explore other mineralized blushes. It has lovely look, and it is long wearing through the day!
i love this blush, its so gorgeous & perfect for the winter time - a warm violet shimmery rasberry color.
This gorgeous raspberry golden kissed blush is beautiful on my fair skin. I was worried that it would go on too dark and look like racing stripes, but the product is quite sheer and blends wonderfully after I pat it on with my blusher brush. I do think its a tad expensive when comparing to other MAC blushes which are less expensive and have more product to them (the 'dome' is just an illusion of more product). You could easily layer golden highlights over your blush to achieve the same effect.
I'm extremely pale so I tend to stick with baby pinks, but this shade is absolutely gorgeous. It gives a doll-like effect, or like I just came in from the cold. It has nice pigmentation and isn't too shimmery.
This is my first mineralize blush from MAC and it is simply beautiful. The color is a nice golden raspberry pink on my cheeks. I apply it with a small kabuki because a regular blush brush wasn't picking up enough color. I've only had the blush for a few weeks but it is already my favorite and I get a lot of comments.
I'm MAC NC45 and Prescriptives Antelope for reference. Darker ladies, don't shy away from pinks and roses. Just find one that works with your undertone.
MAC Describes it as: Raspberry with gold pearl This is my HG Blush!!! Everyone is raving about Nars Orgasm which i don't have anything against but this is more my color!.. It's almost the same color my cheeks produce when I am blushing (although its unattractive to say but yes!)-- it's like my cheeks-but-better kind of blush! It's cost efficient too! coz you only need a tad bit and your good to go. Although it would cost me a whopping $21, I still use it up to now and its been 3 months! and I don't think I would be buying one soon, I haven't hit pan on it yet but I already got my back up just in case MAC discontinues it.. =) I simply love this blush!
I really wish MAC made a pan to put the mineralized blushes in...
Gentle is similar to Dainty in the way of giving you a soft, fresh glow. Looks amazing on lighter and medium skin.
I usually always go for dainty but I choose Gentle for when I wear purpley lippies.
Would buy again if I ever run out. Still have Warm Soul after a year and a half and still going strong!
