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!
Gentle is the prettiest mineralize blushes in the permanent collection, in my opinion. It is a plummy pink with golden shimmer. Although this shade is definitely pretty, it's not a terribly unique, one-of-a-kind blush.
Seeing that these blushes are more expensive than those that are not mineralized, I expected amazing pigmentation, but did not see such results. There seems to be a layer of protectant or sealant on top of the blush that detracts from the pigmentation that this blush should have. Although I have used this product a few times, I still have not broken through this layer.
I bought it coz i wanted 2 try a mineralized blush, at the MAC store all the other colors were so ligh & sheer with lots of shimmers, but this 1 is the only 1 that showed on my skin as im an NC 35.
its not that pigmented and still applies lightly on my skin, and gives a hint of a dusty rosy colour 2 my cheeks which i like .
I love these Mineralize blushes, especially Gentle. This blush looks great on my medium/tan skin tone and it's verrrrrry pigmented, so a little goes a long way! I'm way excited to try other mineralize blushes thanks to my great experience with my first one, Gentle.
I tried it on at the MAC store today, depending on these wonderful reviews. At first when I saw it, it is purplish pink, the SA tried it on me and I look like I'm bruised on my cheek. Needless to say not good for my NC 25 asian skin. I wouldn't buy it unless I'm going for a bright bruised cheek look.
First of all, this colour is gorgeous. It has a nice violet pink shade to it. Of course, since it is a MSF product there is some shimmer to it, but it didn't go over the top.
It lasted the entire day on me, without fading or smudging.
I love this blush so much, it has a really nice rosy glow to it.
For me, when I first purchased it and tried it the blush didn't show alot on my brush and on my skin. I had to constantly swipe some more off it. I was surprised since the tester one at MAC came off so easily...but once I started using it more, the rough surfae started to fade, and it was easier to apply.
Overall, I love it, the colour, and that hint of sparkle to my face, without any irritations.
I would repurchase it.
love this blush!
i was a bit hesitant to try because it looks a bit purplish/plum in the pan, but i'm glad i did =) it gives me a pinkish flush that's quite natural and 'doll-like'.
So a few months ago I went to the MAC counter, looking for a whole new make-up line since my make up had gotten stolen (my high school is awful with that). I had a MAC consultant help me...he studied me and then proceeded to pick out "Gentle', I looked at it and give him a funny look. It looked PURPLE! "No way will this look good on me!" he still tried it on me though. And when I looked in that mirror, I knew I had fallen in love. It was so gorgeous! The shade was pink, not purple like I was expecting. I wear this blush everyday, I refuse to go without it, I feel like a model it's so intense. This is definitely my HG blush, it's flawless. So I highly recommend this product, you won't go wrong:)
I just bought this today. I was looking at all the blushes and I saw this little beauty amongst the Mineralized range and was knocked out by the colour when I did a swatch. Absolutely stunning! The blue-undertoned pinky colour with subtle Orgasm-esque shimmer was beautiful. I couldn't say no to it so I bought it home, and oh my gosh, this blush is absolutely stunning. It makes me look flushed and pretty in an english-rose kind of way. This is my new favourite and will definitely form part of my wedding makeup routine.
Try it, you will not be disappointed!!!!
