MAC’s major Spring collection, A Fantasy of Flowers, isn’t just full of beautiful colors for lips and eyes… There are several products for cheeks too! There are two brand new Mineralize Blushes that were released with this collection that I’ll be reviewing in this post. I know this collection was released a little over a week ago, so I apologize for getting this post up so late. I’ve been working a lot and really got to play around with these products before reviewing them, though, so that’s a plus!

A Fantasy of Flowers is a big collection… It actually has two parts with separate displayers at counter, with one being green and displaying the more peachy and neutral colors, and one being pink and displaying the more pink and violet shades. There is one blush on each displayer as one is more warm toned and one is somewhat cool toned. All of these products can be mixed and matched, of course, but by dividing the colors a bit, MAC is just suggesting which colors work best with one another, so that’s kind of nice if you’re new to makeup or need some ideas!

Azalea in the Afternoon and Petal Power

Azalea in the Afternoon and Petal Power

MAC’s Mineralzie Blush is described as “Baked minerals refined into a powder formula to provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. Veils and enhances the cheekbones with a luminous, pearlized shimmer.” MAC Mineralize Blushes are one of my favorite blush formulas of all time. They give off a radiant glow without being frosty. They have shimmer, but it’s subtle and they don’t contain the kind of shimmer particles that appear chunky or heavy. Mineralize Blushes have a soft, fine texture so they blend and layer beautifully. You can apply these as a light wash of color or more heavily for more color and coverage, depending on how much pigmentation and sheen you desire. The best part about these in particular is that they have this really beautiful, reflective almost iridescent pearl. I am OBSESSED with these!

If you want to apply these really lightly, a MAC 188 brush is best and gives you the most control. To apply a little more heavily or to a bigger area, you can use a MAC 187 brush (the larger version of the 188). For the most intense application (which still doesn’t look too heavy), you can use something like a MAC 168, 116, or 129 brush. Mineralize Blushes offer about 6-8 hours of wear before fading. On oilier skin, they may not last quite so long. On extremely oily skin or on skin with large pores, these may emphasize shine and pore size. However, using a mattifying and/or pore minimizing primer, like MAC’s Prep + Prime Skin Smoother, should eliminate or at least help out with that issue!

These blushes are both limited edition and available now at stores, counters, and online at www.maccosmetics.com.  They contain the usual 3.2 g / 0.10 US oz of product and sell for $25. These may or may not be in stock at all locations, but I know most in my area still have a couple of them left. I believe that Petal Power may be sold out online for the time being, but check back since sometimes MAC restocks limited launches online!

Azalea in the Afternoon:   This blush is a “mid tone blue pink” with a glowy finish. It’s a light to medium (depending on how much you apply), slightly cool toned pink with some soft blue/lavender undertones and a really unique, almost iridescent pearly, glowing finish… It’s like the cool tones actually give a pearlized highlight to this blush once it’s applied to the cheeks. It’s SO pretty! Color payoff is great, though this blush tends to look a bit cooler on the skin than in the pan. Coverage is nearly opaque if you want it to be, or more sheer if you apply it more lightly. This is typical and exactly how Mineralize Blushes should be. It feels a little powdery but still applies, layers, and blends out easily. I got about 7 hours of wear with Azalea in the Afternoon before I started to notice any fading. One note though… Because this is a cooler toned pink, I recommend this for people with very fair to medium skin tones. When applied on any darker skin tones, it can look so cool toned that it makes you look washed out. However, if you are medium-dark to deep, you can always lightly layer this over another blush to cool down the color and add a glow!

Dupes:   Dainty is the closest dupe I can think of that’s permanent, but it’s a warmer, more yellow based pink. It is a Mineralize Blush though, so it has the same type of finish. Other than that, you can try Well Dressed or Pink Swoon Powder Blushes, but they won’t have a glow. You can always layer a Mineralize Skinfinish powder over them (like Porcelain Pink or Perfect topping, which is from this collection), to add the Mineralize glow.

Petal Power:   This Mineralize Blush is a “coral pink with gold shimmer” and has a super glowing finish. It’s a medium, bright but still soft, warm toned pink with coral undertones and a beautiful, warm golden sheen. Color payoff is bright and a near perfect match to how this blush looks in the pan. Coverage is sheer to pretty much full, depending on what type of technique and brush you use to apply Petal Power. It’s very smooth and silky, so it’s easy to apply and layer even though the color is fairly intense. I didn’t notice and fading with Petal Power until I had it on for about 7-8 hours. This blush is warmer and bolder than Azalea in the Afternoon, so it works on a wider variety of skin tones… I’ve tried this on a lot of people from super fair (like me) all the way up to dark-deep and it’s flattering on most people. The only thing is, it may need to be layered over another similar, more pigmented blush on dark to deep skin to get it to show up well, or it can be used as a warm highlighter on deeper skin tones.

Dupes:   NARS Orgasm is actually really similar but less pink and is harder to work with (in my opinion). For MAC dupes, I can’t think of any right now! If I come up with one, I’ll post it later. Petal Power is definitely unique enough that it’s worth stocking up on!

Part of MAC’s Divine Night collection includes some Mineralize products… The only ones I purchased and will be reviewing are the blushes, although there are also three Skinfinishes and six Eye Shadows. I like how MAC typically releases some new shimmery Mineralize products around fall/winter… It’s the perfect time of year to wear a soft, glowing look!

Between these three colors, two are quite shimmery, but still have decent color payoff, while the other is more of the soft, glowing Mineralize Blush formula. Even though there are only three, you’ll most likely find one that works for you skintone. If not, I suggest looking into the Mineralize Skinfinishes, as there’s some more color variation with those and they each include two colors. Mineralize Skinfinishes, however, have a lot more shine and shimmer than these blushes do, so that may not be your thing.

Divine Night Mineralize Blushes 1

MAC Mineralize Blushes are one of my favorite blush formulas of all time. They give off a radiant glow without being frosty. They have shimmer, but it’s subtle and they don’t contain the kind of shimmer particles that appear chunky or heavy (though some have larger shimmer particles than others). Mineralize Blushes have a soft, fine texture so they blend and layer beautifully. You can apply these as a light wash of color or more heavily for more color and coverage, depending on how much pigmentation and sheen you desire.

If you want to apply these lightly, a MAC 188 brush is best and gives you the most control. To apply slightly more heavily, you can use a MAC 187 brush (the larger version of the 188). For the most intense application (which still doesn’t look too heavy), you can use something like a MAC 168, 116, or 129 brush. Mineralize Blushes offer about 6-8 hours of wear before fading.

However, using a mattifying and/or pore minimizing primer, like MAC’s Prep + Prime Skin Smoother, should eliminate or at least help out with that issue!

Divine Night Mineralize Blushes 2

All three of these Mineralize Blushes are limited edition and are available now online at www.maccosmetics.com as well as at counters and stores. These sell for $27.50 (due to the special matte black and gold packaging for holiday) and contain 3.2 g / 0.10 US oz of product. Sadly, the permanent lineup of Mineralize Blushes are actually cheaper and contain more product… They sell for $25 and contain 3.5 g / 0.11 US oz. These colors are fairly unique, though, so if you’re into them, they’re definitely worth buying!

Lavish Living:   Lavish Living is a “violet with silver pearl base with gold pearl”… That’s a mouthful! It’s a medium to medium-dark, slightly cool toned plum with warmer berry undertones. The finish is very shimmery/frosted due to the high amount of pearlescent particles, but I like that because there’s no need for a highlighter with this blush. Although it looks pretty dark in the packaging, Mineralize blushes can be applied lightly for a softer finish and less color payoff and coverage, or applied heavily if you want more color, opacity, and shimmer. To me, this is suitable for nearly any skin tone.

If you have oily skin, this blush may not wear as long. I have normal/combination skin and got around 7 hours of wear with Lavish Living. Also, if you have a lot of texture or large pores, this blush may emphasize that unless you use a good primer, foundation, and powder underneath this blush.

Dupes:  As far as permanent dupes go, Love Joy Mineralize Blush is going to be the closest as you can get to Lavish Living. It’s slightly warmer, perhaps, and less frosted, but is similar once applied.

Lured to Love:   This blush is a “coral pink base with pink frost”… It’s a light, warm toned, peachy-coral pink with a very soft pearly pink sheen. The finish for this blush is the least shimmery and most natural of the three in this collection. Color payoff was good, and best with some layering. I prefer a 116 brush with this blush to get the best color payoff and coverage, otherwise coverage is quite sheer and soft. That said, this blush is best for fair to medium and maybe medium-dark skintones. Since this isn’t so shimmery, it won’t show pores or texture and will wear just fine on oily skin, unlike Lavish Living. I got 8 hours of wear with Lured to Love.

Dupes:   There are actually quite a few blushes that are similar to Lured to Love, but none that I can think of are permanent… You may already have them in your collection, though… Legendary Blush from the Marilyn Monroe collection is a bit more pink but otherwise very close. Immortal Flower Blush, most recently released with the All About Orange collection is also similar, though peachier.

Talk of the Town:   Talk of the Town is described as being a “warm brown base with yellow bronze”… Huh?! To me, this is a light, warm yellow-peachy pink with a very frosted finish. Applied heavily it looks nearly metallic, while applied lightly, it’s more of a soft wash of color and a lot of golden pearl. Since I’m an NC15, this does show up on me but anyone with medium skin or darker would be better off using this as a highlighter rather than a blush. It looks much more pigmented in the packaging than it does once applied. The coverage is alright… Certainly not opaque but the shimmer payoff is fantastic.

Because this is so frosty, I don’t recommend this for oily or textured skin, as it will get shiny and not wear long, as well as emphasize pores and texture.

Dupes:   I can’t think of many dupes that are similar to this… Soft & Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish is really the only permanent product that I can think of that will give you the same kind of sheen and soft wash of color, but it is a highlighter and not a blush.

The Apres Chic collection is pretty big and full of all sorts of Mineralize products. There are even two brand new products that made their debut in this collection… Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm and Pro Longwear Eye Liner. Apres Chic is my favorite collection since Heavenly Creature and let me just say, the promo image is GORGEOUS!

There are a few products that are part of Apres Chic that I will not be reviewing now… I did not purchase the limited edition Nail Lacquers, although they are nice… I just don’t feel like adding to my already overwhelmingly huge nail polish collection.

I did purchase the new 287 duo fibre eye brush but I will be including that in a brush post later on since it’s now permanent. I’m skipping a review on the 187 brush too because it will also be part of a brush post. Zoom Waterfast Lash Mascara has also been left out because it’s permanent as well and I don’t have it or need a new mascara right now, so I couldn’t convince myself to buy it.

Apres Chic Mineralize Skinfinishes

Mineralize Skinfinish:   These are both limited edition Mineralize Skinfinishes, but they have both been released previously with other collections. Mineralize Skinfinishes work as highlighters or blushes, giving your cheeks a beautiful, shimmery glow. The shimmery particles in both of these are very fine, so they don’t look chunky or emphasize pores like some other MSF’s do. Mineralize Skinfinish sells for $29 and contains 10 g / 0.35oz of product.

Apres Chic Mineralize Blushes

 

Mineralize Blush:   Mineralize Blushes are my favorite blush formula from any brand, ever! They’re glowy without being too frosted and give the face a beautiful “from within” type of radiance. Mineralize Blushes are buildable too, so you can achieve a soft natural look or apply it more heavily if you want added intensity. These three colors are suitable for anyone and can be used in different ways or even layered with one another. Alpine Bronze and Amber Glow are brand new, limited edition colors, while Gentle is part of MAC’s permanent range. Mineralize Blush contains 3.2g / 0.10oz of product and sell for $23.50.

Apres Chic Mineralize Eye Shadows

Mineralize Eye Shadow:   Mineralize Eye Shadows are a versatile type of powder eye shadow that can be used dry for a softer look, or applied with a dampened brush for more intensity and a more frosted finish. These are all really lovely colors and look great on anyone. All five of these are brand new colors and are limited edition. Mineralize Eye Shadows cost $21 and contain 2.2g / 0.07oz of product.

For more photos, swatches and reviews of these Mineralize Eye Shadows, click here.

 

Apres Chic Pro Longwear Eye Liners

 

Pro Longwear Eye Liner:   These are a brand new eye liner formula that will remain as part of MAC’s permanent line of products. They’re smooth and long wearing, lasting for 12+ hours on the upper lash line (on the lid) and 6+ on the waterline. There are only five colors as of right now, but I’m hoping that MAC releases more later on… I can see these becoming VERY popular! Pro Longwear Eye Liners cost $19.50 and contain  5g / 0.17oz of product.

Apres Chic Lipsticks 1

Lipstick:   There are five brand new lipsticks out with the Apres Chic collection. All of these are limited edition. There is plenty of variation between the Apres Chic lipsticks, so you’re sure to find one that you fall in love with. These lipsticks are are high quality and have good pigmentation and texture. MAC Lipsticks sell for $15 and contain 3g / 0.1oz of product.

Apres Chic Mineralize Tinted Lip Balms

Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm:   These lip balms are a brand new, limited edition product (although I’m hoping that MAC will make these permanent). Mineralize Tinted Lip Balms are super nourishing and lightweight all at the same time. They’re somewhat sheer, but have a decent amount of color for this type of lip moisturizer. I put these to the test when I was out at sea whale watching, then hiking through redwood forests in really cold weather this past week… They held up well, wore for a long time and most importantly, kept my lips soft and moisturized! Mineralize Tinted Lip Balms contain 10ml / .33fl oz of product and sell for$19.50.

I did not purchase either one Nail Lacquer in the Apres Chic collection because honestly, I’m running out of room to store my nail polishes… So unfortunately, I can’t give you reviews for these, but I have seen these in person and I do think they’re pretty! I like MAC’s Nail Lacquer for the most part… They typically wear pretty well (5-6 days before tip wear or chipping) and apply smoothly. However, I can’t vouch for these because I did not test them. MAC Nail Lacquers contain 10ml / 0.34 US oz of product and cost $16.

On the left is Dangerously Fun, which is a “berry tone blue red”. On the right, we have Hangin’ Loose, which is described as a “dirty pink nude”.

 

Apres Chic Nail Lacquers

MAC has released three Mineralize Blushes with the Apres Chic collection… Two of these are brand new and one is part of the permanent lineup of Mineralize Blushes. These are all dramatically different and work for a variety of skintones. The cool part is that all of these can be used on anyone and look good, it’s just a matter of how and where you apply them!

For the most intense application (which still doesn’t look too heavy), you can use something like a MAC 168, 116, or 129 brush. Mineralize Blushes offer about 6-8 hours of wear before fading. On oilier skin, they may not last quite so long. On extremely oily skin or on skin with large pores, these may emphasize shine and pore size. However, using a mattifying or pore minimizing primer, like MAC’s Prep + Prime Skin Smoother, should eliminate or at least help out with that issue!

Alpine Bronze and Amber Glow are both limited edition and have only been released with the Apres Chic collection, which came out the day after Christmas. Gentle is permanent, so it will always be available. Mineralize Blush contains 3.2g / 0.10oz of product and sell for $23.50. These are available now at your local MAC counter, store, or online at www.maccosmetics.com.

Alpine Bronze:   Alpine Bronze is a “midtone caramel”. It’s a medium, warm toned tan with a creamy golden sheen. It looks kind of orange in the pan, but it doesn’t apply like that. It’s well pigmented, but buildable, so anyone from fair to dark skin can wear Alpine Bronze… I’m about as fair as you can get and surprisingly, this even worked on me! Applied lightly on my own cheeks it appears as a brown based, slightly peachy tan that really warmed up my complexion without making me look like I applied some kind of weird bronzer, which is what most blushes this color look like on me. I think this would be a very nice, natural looking blush on medium to dark skin, especially for Spring and Summer!

Amber Glow:   Amber Glow is a “warm peach”… It’s a light, very soft, warm toned peach with a pale, cream shimmer. It’s nicely pigmented, but it’s so light that you have to build on it or layer it to get it to show up. I actually love this blush because I’m fair skinned, so it works both as a blush or a highlighter on me… I can’t see this working too well as a blush on anyone darker than light-medium or medium skin though. Amber Glow will double as a highlight on anyone from fair to medium deep or maybe dark skin, so it is versatile and usable by nearly everyone. This Mineralize Blush has the smoothest texture I’ve ever felt… It’s very fine and not super frosty, so it doesn’t emphasize pores one little bit! That makes it perfect for all skin types, even oily skin.

Gentle:   Gentle is a “raspberry with gold pearl” and is part of MAC’s permanent range of Mineralize Blush. It’s a medium, ever so slightly cool toned pink with a warm golden, pearly sheen. The warmth of the pearl counteracts the coolness of the blush in a way, so this is wearable for both warm and cool skintones. Gentle has great color payoff and pigmentation, and Mineralize Blushes are so buildable that this is suitable for everyone, whether your skin is fair or deep dark. Gentle isn’t very frosty, so it works well even on people who have larger pores or oily skin.

MAC Heavenly Creature  –  Thursday, July 5th, 2012

MAC’s Heavenly Creature collection is a large, space themed collection full of Mineralize products such as Eye Shadows, Blushes, and Mineralize Skinfinishes. There are also Mineralize Charged Water skincare products like Eye Cream, Cleanser, and Moisture Gel. They even brought back Volcanic Ash Exfoliator with this collection! As well as Mineralize products, there are Lipsticks and Cremesheen Glasses too. MAC is also repromoting a few of their permanent products, like the 286, 187, and 188 Duo Fibre Brushes and False Lashes Mascara.

The product names in this collection are all fun and space-related. The Mineralize Skinfinishes, Blushes, and Eye Shadows all have a swirly appearance too, so they resemble planets, galaxies, etc… Most of the products are bright, bold, warm colors, which are perfect for summer! MAC usually releases a Mineralize collection around summertime every year. Heavenly Creature is my favorite in the past few years… These colors really are unique and nearly every product can be worn by anyone!

MAC’s Heavenly Creature collection is already available online, but the official North American release date for counters and stores is Thursday, July 5th. The majority of these products are limited edition. Since Mineralize products are SO popular, you may want to go ahead and get what you want online or stop by your local MAC store or counter and pre-purchase or reserve the products that you want! These will probably sell out VERY quickly!

* Mineralize Skinfinish *

$29 for 10g / 0.35 US oz

MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish is “A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.” These are shimmery, but buildable so you can wear them as a softer wash of color with a glow, or layer them up for intense color payoff and a metallic sheen. These apply best with something like a MAC 187 or 188 Duo-Fibre brush and wear for around 8 hours. There are four Mineralize Skinfinish powders in this collection, all of which are limited edition. For more photos and swatches, you can click here: MAC Heavenly Creature Mineralize Skinfinish: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

* Mineralize Blush*

$23.50 for 3.2g / 0.10 US oz

MAC Mineralize Blushes are “Baked minerals refined into a powder formula to provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage. Veils and enhances the cheekbones with a luminous, pearlized shimmer.” All of these are warm, bright colors and although they may look a little intimidating to those of you with fair-light skin, they’re buildable, so with proper application, these don’t have to look so intense if you don’t want them to! Mineralize Blush applies best with a MAC 187 or 188 Duo-Fibre brush and wears for about 8 hours. All four Mineralize Blushes in this collection are limited edition. For additional photos and swatches, you can click here: MAC Heavenly Creature Mineralize Blush: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

* Mineralize Eye Shadow *

$20 for 1.8g / 0.06 US oz

MAC’s Mineralize Eye Shadows are also “Baked minerals refined into a powder formula provide exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. Colour builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage”. Basically, it’s the nearly the same formula as the blushes are, only in an eye shadow form! As with the rest of the Mineralize Products, these are buildable, and can also be applied damp for extra bold shimmer and color payoff. I go over all application techniques in my other post. With these, I get approximately 6-10 hours of wear, depending on whether or not I apply a primer underneath. All nine Mineralize Eye Shadows are limited edition. For more photos, swatches, and a full review, you can click here: MAC Heavenly Creature Mineralize Eye Shadows: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

* Lipstick *

$14.50 for 3g / 0.1 US oz

MAC’s Lipstick formula feels lightweight on the lips, but still gives great pigmentation and color payoff. Most of the Lipsticks in the Heavenly Creature collection are Lustre finishes, except for Pleasureseeker, which is a Glaze. Lustre finish Lipsticks give me around 4 hours of wear before they need to be touched up, while Glazes last slightly longer since they are a bit more creamy. All five of these Lipsticks are limited edition, with Pleasureseeker being a repromote that was originally released with the Neo Sci-Fi collection in May of 2008. Cut A Caper is also a repromote from MAC’s A Tartan Tale collection which came out in October of 2010. Cut A Caper was extremely popular when it was originally released and sold out online the first day that the Heavenly Creature collection was available!

* Cremesheen Glass *

$19.50 for 2.7ml / 0.09 US fl oz

MAC Cremesheen Glass is “A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M∙A∙C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Applies with a doe-foot applicator. Use as a top layer to its namesake Lipstick or on its own.” These truly are non-sticky, and while they aren’t as thick as typical Lipglass, they are still intensely pigmented and offer great coverage. I get around 4 hours of wear with Cremesheen Glass. The five Cremesheen Glasses in the Heavenly Creature collection are all limited edition.

* Brushes *

187 Duo Fibre Face Brush:   This brush is permanent and sells for $42. It is “A large full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.” It’s perfect for the application of Mineralize Skinfinishes or Mineralize Blushes (but the 188 will give you more control). You can easily layer the product, gradually building color with it. The 187 Brush is also great for buffing and blending!

188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush:   This brush is permanent and sells for $34. It is “A flat-topped, full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of any formula colour – fluid, cream, powder or pigment. Ideal for creating soft layers or adding textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.” It’s a smaller version of the 187 brush, so it’s better for applying to smaller areas, like cheeks, and gives you more control over the product. This is my favorite brush for applying Mineralize Blush.

286 Duo Fibre Blending Brush:   This eye brush is also part of MAC’s permanent line and sells for $30. “With its soft dome shape, this two-toned, duo-fibre brush of goat and synthetic fibres provides a sheer, more controlled application of M·A·C Mineralize Eye Shadow.” I think this brush is great for applying Mineralize Eye Shadow, but mostly just for buffing out and softening the intensity and dry application. It fits into the crease very nicely and gives you a great deal of control. It’s also a fantastic brush for applying under-eye concealer!

* False Lashes Mascara* 

$19 for 8g / 0.28 US oz

False Lashes Mascara:   This mascara is a permanent product. The formula is “Fashionably false in look, but honestly real, this mascara’s key benefits of volume and curl are matched by a dramatic end look. The unique edge: the ultra-thickening formula in combo with the plush-’em-up action of its unique double-lush brush.” This is by far one of my favorite mascaras of all time! I use this on an almost daily basis to make my lashes look long, dark, and full. I especially like layering this over Prep + Prime Lash for added volume, length, and drama. False Lashes Mascara layers well without weighing down the lashes or clumping and wears without smudging or flaking.

Volcanic Ash Exfoliator:   This product is “A highly effective, dual-purpose foaming, cleansing and exfoliating scrub blending natural Volcanic Ash with fine sugar crystals. Refines and unclogs the skin, adds instant moisture: leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean. Mineral-rich. May be used effectively on any part of face or body. Rinses off with warm water.” I have not used this myself, but I plan on picking some up this week! I hear fantastic things about it and from what I understand, it’s good for all skin types. MAC usually releases this in limited quantities and once it’s gone, it’s not released again for a while. That said, I’m unclear if this is going to stick around or not, but I’m pretty sure that it’s limited edition with the Heavenly Creature collection. This contains 100ml / 3.4 US fl oz of product and sells for $28.

Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser:   This cleanser is “A lightweight cleanser formulated with our ionized Super-Duo Charged Water technology. Removes all makeup (except waterproof and longwearing) with a wipe – no rinse-off required. Leaves skin nourished, soft, absolutely clean.” It’s a cleanser/remover, so you don’t have to rinse your face with water after using this if you’re in a hurry. I still like to rinse mine, though. I don’t own this product but I’ve used it several times and I like it! It leaves my skin feeling nourished and doesn’t seem to dry it out. Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser is permanent product that contains 100ml of cleanser and sells for $23.

Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream:   This eye cream is “A luxuriously rich eye cream. Infused with our ionized Super-Duo Charged Water technology. Moisturizes and adds radiance, while instantly – and over time – reducing the look of dark circles, lines and puffiness.” I have only tried this out for a few days in a row but I thought it was nice and plan on purchasing it when I run out of my other eye cream! it doesn’t decrease puffiness as quickly as Fast Response Eye Cream does, but it seems to help prevent it to some degree and provides more moisture. This is a permanent product containing 15ml of eye cream, which sells for $35.

Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel:   This moisturizer is “An ultra-light, gel-like cream that absorbs instantly to give the skin intense hydration. Infused with our exclusive Super-Charged Water technology, this formula leaves skin softer, more luminous. Use day or night.” Again, I haven’t used this much, only as a sample for about a week, but I think this is a fantastic product for all skin types. If you have dry skin, this will soak in quickly, but still hold in moisture throughout the day. If you have combination skin, it will help to even out the dry areas and oily patches. If you have oilier skin, it will give you just enough moisture to keep your skin even and healthy. My favorite part about MAC’s gel formula moisturizers is that they aren’t heavy and feel like that almost adjust to your skin type, giving you the perfect amount of moisture. It soaks in quickly and doesn’t sit on the surface of the skin, so you can apply makeup over this without feeling like a shiny, slippery-faced mess. During the hotter months, I use the Lightful Moisture Creme, which is also a gel-style moisturizer, so my skin can breathe without having a sticky, heavy layer of moisturizer on it when it’s already hot and humid outside. Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Gel is permanent and contains 50ml of product. This sells for $37.

MAC’s Mineralize Blushes are a baked mineral formula. These are some of my favorite blushes of all time, so I was really excited to see that they were coming out with new ones for the Heavenly Creature collection! They’re very well pigmented, yet buildable. They have a beautiful, soft shimmer that’s more glowy than metallic. Most of MAC’s Mineralize Blushes are universally flattering and can be worn by any skin tone, depending on how sheerly or heavily you apply them, which holds true with the four in this collection.

The formula of these blushes is a very soft, easily blendable powder. It’s shimmery but the shimmer is also buildable… If you apply a little bit it appears as more of a soft glow on the skin. If you apply more of this product, it builds up to a heavier, slightly metallic type of shimmer. Like all blushes, these are most easily blendable when applied over your setting powder, so you get an even application without random, heavy bloches of color. These wear longest on dry to normal or combination skin, giving about 8-10 hours of wear before fading. However, I have combination skin with some oily patches and I still get 8 solid hours of wear before my blush starts to move around or fade. On oily skin these may wear for more like 6-8 hours… Mineralize products tend to slip around on more oily areas and can appear blotchy as your skin produces oil throughout the day. The shimmer in some of these (typically the ones with larger shimmer particles) can emphasize pores, but as long as you make sure not to apply to areas with enlarged pores, these blushes will look fine!

If you have lighter skin, some of these may seem intense and intimidating, but I promise that they aren’t! There are several different ways to apply these so they will work for you, whether you have a fair or deep complexion! The lightest application of these will come from something like a MAC 184 duo fibre fan brush, or any medium to large sized fan brush. For an easily buildable, light to moderate application you can use a fluffier brush like a MAC 187 or 188 duo fibre brush. For the heaviest type of application, if you want bold color payoff and the most intense shimmer, you can use a dense blush brush like a MAC 116. Keep in mind that the Mineralize Blush you get may not look exactly like the ones I have… They all differ to some degree. It all depends on how much of what color gets poured into each blush, so some swatches may appear lighter or darker, or have more shimmer particles than others.

All four of the blushes in the Heavenly Creature collection are limited edition. They are already available online at www.maccosmetics.com, but I see that Supernova says that it’s sold out… Sadface! This collection goes on sale at stores and counters on Thursday, July 5th, but you may want to reserve the products you want ahead of time because this type of product tends to sell out quickly! These Mineralize Blushes contain 3.2g/0.10oz of product in each pot and sell for $23.50.

Ring of Saturn

Ring of Saturn:   Ring of Saturn is described as a “terracotta and gold melange”.  The lighter swirl is a peachy-pink champagne color, with the darker swirl being a medium-dark, slightly plummy red. On the skin this is a warm, medium toned pinkish coral with a golden sheen. The shimmery bits in Ring of Saturn aren very, very small, so this Mineralize Blush feels soft and wears well. Since it’s an intense color, if you have fair skin you may want to apply this sparingly and gradually build on the color until it’s as bright as you like. This is wearable by everyone, though, and looks especially good on medium to dark skin!

Solar Ray

Solar Ray:   This Mineralize Blush is a “peach and gold melange”. There seem to be even amounts of each swirl in the blush that I got but I’m not sure if they’re all like this. The lighter shade is a light-medium peachy-pink that contains a very soft shimmer, while the darker is a medium, yellow-orange gold with slightly larger, more intense golden shimmer particles that are borderline glittery. The texture of this blush felt more coarse than Ring of Saturn, but it was still easily blendable. On the skin, this is a light-medium, orange-coral peach with intense golden shimmer. If you apply this heavily, it’s very frosty! This is suitable for all skin tones, but on deeper skin it may show up more like a metallic, slightly peachy, golden type of blush or highlight.

Stratus

Stratus:   Stratus is described as an “amethyst and gold brown melange”. Mine contains more of the lighter color, which is a warm, coppery peach. The darker swirl is a dark reddened plum. On the skin this is a warm, pinky plum with a very soft, golden-coppery sheen. The shimmery bits in this blush are so small that it gives more of a glow than an intense shimmer. This is the boldest shade of the Mineralize Blushes in this collection, so it’s definitely best for medium-dark to deep skin tones, but is still wearable by everyone. If you have pale to light skin, you definitely want to apply this with a fan brush, or using a very light hand with something like a MAC 188 duo fibre brush. The deeper your skin tone is, the more of this you can apply but you still may want to build up the color slowly!

Supernova

Supernova:   MAC calls Supernova a “magenta and burnished gold melange”. The bright swirl in this is a super bold, hot pink magenta, while the other swirl is a bright, orange-ish, coppery peach that contains the majority of the shimmer. The texture of this blush is very soft and blendable, which is nice since it’s so bright! On the skin, this is a medium-dark, slightly cool toned, bright berry tinted pink with a warmer, soft golden shimmer. The warmer tones of the shimmer even out the cooler undertones in the blush, so this is suitable for everybody. The shimmery particles in Supernova are very fine, so it gives more of a glow than a heavy shimmer. Since this is such a bright color, you will want to apply this with a light hand and gradually build up the color, especially if you have pale or light skin! When I checked on the website earlier, I saw that Supernova is already sold out online. You might want to reserve this one ahead of time if you plan on picking it up at a store or counter when it’s released on July 5th since it seems to be so popular!

Yet another gorgeous collection from MAC! The colors, pigmentation and quality of these products are really exceptional. There is something for every age and skin tone in this collection. Additional/better swatches will be posted very soon, like when the sun is out and my camera battery is actually charged, so check back! Thanks for reading ❤

Some of my products look a little used… That’s because they are! I’ve been testing them so I could write reviews for my readers. I redid my product photos so they don’t look so pretty and fresh-out-of-the-package. I apologize for that but hopefully you enjoy the photos anyway!

*Not pictured: Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish. I don’t plan on adding this to my kit or posting photos of it, as I have similar products.

Lipglass

Fresh Air - Hot Spell - Naked Space - The Wee Coquette

Indoors on NC15 skin Fresh Air - Hot Spell - Naked Space - The Wee Coquette

These Lipglasses may not be outrageous colors or really stand out, but there is something to be said for nice neutrals. For me, it’s difficult to find neutral shades that looks like my lips but better, or colors that go along with a certain lipstick. The Lipglasses in this collection do exactly that… They compliment your own lips and skin tone as well as the lipsticks that came out with MAC Naturally. MAC Tinted Lipglass has a sticky, thick texture when first applied but it doesn’t feel as heavy once it warms up on your lips. The good thing about their thicker texture is that they wear well for about 4 hours before touchups are necessary. The Wee Coquette has been released previously with MAC Me Over last fall, but these are all Limited Edition colors and all of these sell for $14.50.

Fresh Air

Fresh Air:   This is pretty much your typical, somewhat shimmery “light pink”.  At first I was thinking meh, nothing special, it will probably sit in my kit mostly unused… I was wrong! This Lipglass lives in my purse and I use it on a daily basis. This is the perfect pink for me and it would look nice on nearly everyone. On pale-medium skin, it’s a sheer neutral that adds a hint of color and shine, while on darker skin, it would be a good pinky nude. I like to pair this up with A Perfect Day lipstick and Subculture Lip Pencil.

Hot Spell

Hot Spell:   Hot Spell is a shimmery “bronze with multicolored pearl”. On me, it’s a nice, warm, midtone brown, and the golden pearl adds to the warmth of it even more. It has adequate, nearly opaque coverage without looking uneven or streaky. This goes nicely with Beach Sand Lipstick, but that lipstick tends to make Hot Spell appear a little bit darker and cooler. That combination would make a really nice neutral for deeper skin tones.

Naked Space

Naked Space:   For a “creamy, mid-tone peach”, this lipglass provides a warm wash of peachy-ness with some light, almost pearly shimmer.  It applied well with a fair amount of coverage and minimal streaking. It looks lovely when layered over almost any of the lipsticks that came out with this collection, although my favorite combination is with Sweet Sunrise or Pillow Talk. Naked Space is somewhat similar to Illicit Lipglass, but is a bit warmer, deeper, and has more shimmer to it.

The Wee Coquette

The Wee Coquette:   I did not purchase this Lipglass when it was released with MAC Me Over last fall, but I’m glad I did this time. It’s a “naked neutral pink” that looks lovely either by itself or layered over something like Sweet Sunrise lipstick. It applies evenly and has good coverage and a creamy texture. The Wee Coquette lightens up my natural lip color quite a bit and giving me a milky nude look with a touch of white shimmer. If worn alone, I make sure I at least apply Prep + Prime Lip or Lip Conditioner underneath to make it spread out smoothly and not settle into the lines on my lips.

Lipsticks

A Perfect Day - Beach Sand - Pillow Talk - Sweet Sunrise

A Perfect Day - Beach Sand - Pillow Talk - Sweet Sunrise

Indoors on NC15 skin A Perfect Day - Beach Sand - Pillow Talk - Sweet Sunrise

I am a big fan of neutral lipsticks, so I was really excited to get my paws on these. I feel like MAC catered to every skin tone and ethnicity when they designed this collection and I’m really impressed with the quality of these lipsticks. Not one of them is too sheer, too thick, too washed out, or too bold. They are wonderful examples of natural looking lipsticks that enhance what you already have. I tend to get about 4-6 hours of wear from MAC Lipsticks before they start to fade or need touch ups. Layering these over a Lip Pencil will add to the wear time and keep them looking fresh and defined even longer. All of these colors are limited edition and can be purchased at any MAC location or online for $14.50.

A Perfect Day (Amplified)

A Perfect Day (Amplified):   A Perfect Day is a perfect neutral for me. “Light neutral pink” sums up this lipstick, and although it sounds simple, simple is good. I have a hard time finding a pinkish nude lipstick that doesn’t make me look washed out. Usually I use Blankety, but this is my new go-to neutral. It adds a hint more color and rosiness than Blankety. It’s an Amplified texture, so it has nearly opaque coverage and a creamy texture.

Beach Sand (Cremesheen)

Beach Sand (Cremesheen):   This is described as a “light tan”… Yep, that’s about right. I think this color would be a nice pale nude for medium to medium-deep skin tones. It has a peachy undertone to it, so it’s not the type of tan that will make you appear to be one of the living dead. Even on my pasty, NC15 face it looks pretty, especially when I layer a lipglass like Fresh Air over it. Being a Cremesheen finish, it has good coverage and a creamy texture that holds in the moisture of your own lip and doesn’t look dry.

Pillow Talk (Cremesheen)

Pillow Talk (Cremesheen):   This is a “midtone rosy nude” that looks neutral and a bit beige on the lips. It’s neither warm of cool… It’s precisely in between, so it’s versatile and can be easily altered with lip pencils and lipglasses, which is always nifty to play around with. Personally, I like to use Naked Space Lipglass over it. The coverage is smooth and opaque, with a hint of warm sheen. Pillow Talk is suitable for nearly every skin tone and would be a lovely nude for medium to darker skinned ladies.

Sweet Sunrise (Lustre)

Sweet Sunrise (Lustre):   Sweet Sunrise is the lightest nude of the Naturally collection. It reminds me of a lighter, sheerer, warmer version of Creme D’ Nude. This is a Lustre finish lipstick, so it has moderate coverage and a touch of shine. It applies evenly and is buildable. Sweet Sunrise is best suited for light – medium skin and would look awesome with a smokey eye. Any neutral lip pencil can be used with this. My choice is Subculture. I have tried Fresh Air, Naked Space,  and The Wee Coquette Lipglasses over this lipstick and they all look great.

Mineralize Eye Shadow

Top: Cloudy Afternoon - Daylight Bottom: In The Sun - Summer Haze - Twilight Falls

Indoors on NC15 Skin Cloudy Afternoon - Daylight - In The Sun - Summer Haze - Twilight Falls

I was really stoked to see some more Mineralize Eye Shadows come out. The ones that were released with Glitter & Ice were awesome so I had my hopes up when I heard about these. The MAC Naturally MES’s did not disappoint! Mineralize Eye Shadows are versatile and buildable, so you can get any level of color and intensity that you desire. These are quite pigmented dry, and even more intense if you apply them with a dampened brush. To do that, I spray a bit of Fix+ onto my brush, swipe it on a little area of the eye shadow, then pat it onto my eyelid. To avoid dusty fallout, you want to use a Paint Pot under these. It can be a neutral color or something that helps intensify the color of the Mineralize Eye Shadow. Using a primer like a Paint Pot will also increase the wear time and prevent any creasing or smudging.

Sadly, these are all limited edition colors, so get them while you can! You can pick these up online or at any MAC counter or store for $20.

Cloudy Afternoon

Cloudy Afternoon:   MAC describes this Mineralize Eye Shadow as a “cream with gold, grey & pink veining”. The combination of all of those comes out to be a frosty, beige-ish silver. When applied damp, the beige tones appear more than when it’s applied dry. I like to use this color all over the lid or as a highlight below the brow or on the inner corner of my eye.

Daylight

Daylight:   This Mineralize Eye Shadow appears to be a peach with purple, which is accurate to MAC’s description as a “peach with dirty blue lavender veining”. I even see a hint of silver in the veining in mine, but they can vary slightly. On the skin, this appears as a warm, light, peachy to rosy plum. I would say it’s like a lighter, warmer version of Circa Plum Pigment. It’s even more intense and plummier if you apply it with a damp brush, which also makes it look more metallic (so cool). I like to use this color all over my lid or in the crease to blend out a deeper color, such as Twilight Falls.

In The Sun

In The Sun:   I am in love with this one! It’s probably one of the more versatile Mineralize Eye Shadows… Not just from this collection but ever. MAC says it’s a “gold with violet veining”, but I see more than that. You can definitely notice hints of a bronze and cream in this eye shadow. It’s super intense and shimmery, even when applied dry. It’s a warm, mid-tone bronze with plummy undertones to it. Applied damp, it’s bold and intense and shows off the violet even more. The sparkly bits in this are golden and a little chunkier than the other Mineralize Eye Shadows contain, so if you use a brush that’s too fluffy with this, you may have some issues with fallout. Layer this over a primer like a Paint Pot and it will adhere to it when used dry and look it’s best!

Summer Haze

Summer Haze:   Summer Haze is a “palest gold with deeper gold veining”, which translates to a warm, mid-tone golden color when mixed up and applied to your skin. It’s metallic and has a fine, almost creamy texture for a powder. There is a light shimmer mixed in as well so this Mineralize Eye Shadow appears to have many dimensions. It will show up best over a Paint Pot and is most intense and a bit deeper when applied damp. I love to use Summer Haze all over my eyelid with In The Sun in my crease. It makes for a gorgeous, warm metallic look that would make any eye color pop.

Twilight Falls

Twilight Falls:   Here is the cool, smokey color of the collection. It’s described on MAC’s website as a “cool brown with bronze veining”, but when I wear it, I can see some plum and grey tones in there. It’s a soft, sultry color when applied either dry or wet and contains very fine, iridescent shimmer. With a damp application, this will show up relatively deep, but not too intense for any skin tone. I love to use this blended into my crease with any other the other Mineralize Eye Shadows in this collection, or packed on all over my eyelid and blended out with Daylight or In The Sun.

Mineralize Blush

Clockwise from top: Early Morning - Subtle Breeze - Fresh Honey

Indoors on NC15 skin Early Morning - Fresh Honey - Subtle Breeze

Woohoo! New Mineralize Blushes!!! These are my favorite type of blushes from MAC or any other brand. They apply so smoothly and are very buildable, so even the deepest colors can be used on a pale chick like me, or layered onto deeper skin tones. I like to use the now discontinued 131 brush to apply these, but a 187 or 188 will work as well. If you want to be able to apply this sheerly to start out with, I recommend sticking with the Duo Fibre brushes. If you have darker skin and need a more bold color payoff, you could go with a more dense brush like a 116 or 168.

I’m a little bummed out that these, like everything else in this collection, are limited edition and only available until they’re gone. Super sadface! You can get your little hands on these at any MAC location or online for $22.

Early Morning

Early Morning:   This blush looks a little intense at first glance, but if you apply it with a Duo Fibre brush, it’s easy to get a sheer wash of color that’s suitable for even the fairest skin. I have been wearing this nearly every day since I got it and it goes well with so many things, not just makeup from this collection. I’ve been sick and this gives me the extra boost of color that I need to not look like a zombie. MAC calls this Mineralize Blush a “peachy pink”, which is pretty accurate, although I see a hint of rose in there. This is the deepest color of the three blushes and would look good on every skin tone. Seriously. Early Morning is the most versatile and unique Mineralize Blush that I’ve seen in a while and I plan on getting a backup of this color!

Fresh Honey

Fresh Honey:   I was a little bit scared of this color at first because I’m super fair (NC15), and on the cooler to neutral side of the skin tone rainbow. However, after playing around with it, I discovered that it made me look like I’ve been out in the sun if I lightly dust it on my cheeks. Yes, I’m so pale that it worked as a sheer bronzer on me haha. On medium and warmer skin, I believe this would show up as a natural, golden glowing pop of color. MAC refers to Fresh Honey as a “warm apricot”, which is pretty spot on. It reminds me of a deeper, less shimmery version of Nuance Mineralize Blush.

Subtle Breeze

Subtle Breeze:    This is the most neutral, natural looking Mineralize Blush that came out with the MAC Naturally collection. It’s referred to as a “blue-pink” which doesn’t sound like anything super special, but I do love this blush. It’s perfect for an every day color on most pale to medium skin tones and will give you a natural looking, glowy pop of color. I would pair this up with a pretty pink or red lip to make it stand out. In comparison to other Mineralize Blushes, this is like the slightly rosier, less shimmery cousin to Dainty.

Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish

Redhead

Indoors on NC15 skin & mixed together

Redhead:   I really love this Mineralize Skinfinish powder. I actually have two of these that I purchased when it was released with the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead collection. When you use a Duo Fibre brush (like a 188) to swirl it together and apply it to the tops of your cheekbones as a highlight, you’ll get a shimmery, warm golden glow. I usually use this with warmer shades of blush, but don’t be afraid to lightly apply it with cooler colors too. This will REALLY make your cheekbones stand out! You can also use this Mineralize Skinfinish powder as a brow highlight or along your collarbone for sexy, glowing skin.
