MAC Mineralize Blush in Solar Ray Review & Swatch
August 6, 2012 § 4 Comments
Solar Ray ($28CAD for 3.2g) is a mineralize blush that came out with the Heavenly Creature collection a little while back. It’s also my first mineralized blush from MAC.
It looks absolutely gorgeous in the pan, a peachy pink blush interlaced with super shimmery golden bronze. MAC describes it as a “peach and gold melange”. I was first hesitant about getting this because it looks so so shimmery, but once applied, the shimmer isn’t really obvious on the cheeks, unless you are in direct sunlight. It wore for 6-7 hours, although the shimmer stayed for longer. I love how this blush gives me the most gorgeous, yet natural glow, and since it has shimmer, it doubles as a highlighter.
The blush feels very finely milled, and is very pigmented. It takes only 1-2 swipes to get the beautiful flush on the cheeks. It has a slight lotion-y smell, but only when you stick your nose in the pan, otherwise it’s unnoticeable.
I love this blush, and I would get another one for back up if 1. it wasn’t this expensive (regular MAC powder blushes are $24CAD for 6g of product); 2. I wasn’t on project pan. If you have never tried MAC mineralized blush and you are considering it, I would highly suggest this one! I have also been warned that mineralized products are very prone to breaking, so do NOT drop them!
tl:dr version: Pigmented shimmery blush with 6-7 hours wear, doubles as highlighter, I highly recommend this!
