MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty

I haven't had a MAC blush in years but when I spotted Danity on the Fragrance Direct website slightly discounted, I knew I had to get my hands on it. If I am ever going to splurge on some high end products, it is always going to be a lip, blush or foundation because I find them to last the longest and I feel like my money goes further! MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty

I must admit, I cannot stand the packaging and I really don't understand why MAC ever changed it! To me it looks like the fake MAC packaging you used to see years ago, to me it looks very cheap. It is also a massive pain to open but packaging issues aside, I do really like the product. The MAC Mineralised Blushes are available in eight different shades and retail for £22 each for 3.4g of product. This blush is created with baked minerals defined into a powder to provide you with a sheer and lightweight blush application. 

Dainty is described as a light yellow pink blush with gold pearl but I would describe it as a light rosy pink shade. This blush is one of the softest ones I have in my collection and applies so beautifully to the cheeks, I like to use the Zoeva 96 Luxe Powder Veil brush as it applies the blush and blends it out at the same time. Even though this blush is sheer, it is definitely buildable and you could create a strong pink cheek if you wanted to with a few layers of the blush. It feels incredibly lightweight on the skin and lasts all day. With some blushes I have found that they will only last for a few hours but this one it will last until the evening. 

The main reason I love this blush so much is because it enhances my cheeks and gives them a gorgeous glow. When paired with theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer it looks stunning if I do say so myself! I have never had a blush which gives the cheeks a beautiful pink glow like this does. As I do have very pale skin I was very happy that it was sheer but buildable because even the lightest of pink blushes can look a little intense on my cheeks. If you have pale skin like me, I am an NC15, and are looking for a blush to give the cheeks a glow - you need to try this.

  1. I haven't actually been to a Mac store for a while but I agree with you on the packaging. This is the first time I've see the new one. I think the colour is beautiful though, it looks lovely with your complexion. I think it's a little pale for me but might just work!

  2. I absolutely love the look of this blush. I'm really into/obsessed with blusher lately and I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one next time I'm in the MAC store. x

  3. This is such a lovely colour! I always kind of neglect blusher to be honest but maybe if I could find one I really loved I wouldn't! x

  4. I haven't tried any of the MAC blushes but this sounds awesome. I have such fair skin that usually they sit too heavy on my skin, but this one sounds as though it wouldn't.

  10. I don't think I've actually tried a MAC blush. Oh actually I might have one I picked up from a blog sale but I really haven't used it much, I should change that! x
