How to Use
Apply desired amount of product using the appropriate brush and blend even.
MAC Mineralize Blushes comes in a dome shaped round container which matches the interior of the product base too. The lid has a round transparent see through cover in the middle which helps you keep a check on the amount of product left. The little round box closes with a click which secures the lock on place so that there is no fear of the lid slipping off while carrying it around in your purse. However there is no mirror inside so one has to carry a separate mirror for any last minute touch ups.
Mac describes the colour Dainty as a “light yellow pink with gold pearl” and it also happens to be one of the permanent shades of MAC blushes. This one is suitable for lighter to medium skin tones due to its light pink shade. This is the sort of colour you could imagine on a Barbie if I am able to describe it well. Even though the shade is leaning towards a lighter note yet the colour payoff is great. You only need a little amount and a couple of strokes give you the desired look. The “gold pearl” imparts a beautiful glowy and dewy look on the face which gives the illusion of a healthy illuminated skin.
The pearly gold glitter is finely milled and doesn’t show up in chunks when it’s blended in. The mineralise blushes highlight the face in a most natural way and this colour can even be used on the nose and chin to give a flushed look to the face. The blush has a beautiful soft texture which gives a very smooth feel to the skin once applied.
