MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty

MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty £20 3.5g

I’ve owned MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Dainty for quite a while now but I’ve not reviewed it until now. I’ve dug it out of my makeup collection for summer as it’s a lovely peachy-pink blush that’s perfect for summer. It does have a little shimmer running through it, but it’s not really transferable onto the cheeks – so don’t worry about resembling a disco ball! The formula differs from most other MAC blushers because minerals are baked into the powder which provides a lightweight comfortable finish, however I don’t find it as sheer as it states on the MAC website (although this could be because of the texture, as it is very easy to pick up product with a make up brush).

The texture is powdery but not chalky and it’s easy to blend. The pigmentation is good, it shows up easily on my fair skin and I think it would suit fair-medium skin tones however it may not show up/might look too stark on darker skin tones. It’s odd because on the website it said that the Mineralize Blushers have a sheer finish, but I actually thought the pigmentation was medium (although this could be because I either over-apply it or because I’m so fair-skinned). In terms of colour, I find it rather similar to NARS Deep Throat but lacks the subtle shimmer. The wear time of MAC’s Dainty is not great and I see it starting to fade around the 5 hour mark.

All in all, MAC Dainty blush is possibly one of my absolute favourites, I really like the texture and it gives a perfect flush to the cheeks. If you have pale skin, I’d definitely recommend giving it a swatch at your local MAC store, tanned lovelies should give it a whirl too!
Have you tried a MAC Mineralize Blush before? Or any other blush by MAC?
