Subtle Satiny MAC Semi-Precious Warmth of Coral & Pressed Amber Mineralize Blush Review & Swatches
The MAC Semi-Precious Mineralize Blushes are smooth, satiny and subtle pots of cheek color. I exhibited some restraint and just got two. Warmth of Coral and Pressed Amber seemed to be the more wearable of the three for me. As much as I wanted Feeling Flush, the pink and purple tones in it probably wouldn't be something I'd wear on a day-to-day basis.
Pressed Amber is something I know I'd be able to use more readily. It's a marble of pinky-nude, beige and brown with a satin finish. If you like MAC Happy Together Mineralize Blush or Warm Soul Mineralize Blush, this blush is definitely one to look at. Pair it with a smokey eye, bright lips or any other look where cheeks are not the focus. Buildable but be careful not to go too heavy as it can look a bit ruddy or even like two giant brown spots.
Warmth of Coral is a marble of peach and coral. It has barely a touch of pink. It adds just a touch of color to cheeks. Easily buildable but never gets too dark.
Since both mineralize blushes on the subtle side, pairing it with the dazzling array of rich eye shadows works amazingly well. I am glad that these are satiny rather than frosty or shimmery. For girls wanting a little shimmer, just add a bit of one of the MAC Semi-Precious Mineralize Skin Finishes or even good old MAC Soft & Gentle. Am loving both and hope you've gotten your hands on these before they sell out. :)
