MAC Naturally: Early Morning Mineralize Blush

MAC Early Morning Mineralize Blush ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink.” There’s not much peach in this, to be honest; it doesn’t seem to come through at all! Instead, it’s more like a medium-dark coral-pink with hints of red. It’s not as pink as theBalm Frat Boy or as orange as Chanel Tweed Brun Rose.  The pigmentation is nice, but it’s soft enough that it can be easily diffused and blended out for a softer look.  You don’t need an exceptionally light hand to work with it either, which makes it more user-friendly.

The texture of this collection’s Mineralize Blushes is really lovely; beyond finely-milled, so the powder is soft, smooth, and feels like silk against the skin. With a very natural finish (think barely-there glow), the color lies beautifully against the skin. It’s really the way these feel and look on the skin that make them sing. I tested out Subtle Breeze from this collection for wear, and it lasted for around six hours before it started to look noticeably faded on my normal-to-dry skin. I’ve never had good luck with getting MAC’s mineralize products to wear all day on me, unfortunately.

A-
It has such a beautiful texture that looks even more beautiful when worn--I just wish it would wear longer than six hours! The color payoff is nice but the powder is blendable, so you can get the concentration of color you prefer with ease.

  18. Ana G.

    I loved this color; seem perfect for my NC40 skin tone…but I have the same problem as you, these just don’t last all day on me.Still, I might buy this one….don’t think I’ll be able to resist :-)

  19. Mel

    This is lovely. I think I’ll need to buy it.

  20. Meagan

    Gorgeous! Christine- is this anything like the “blush” achieved from the Guerlain Pauire de Nuit? I am looking for something like it but more intense and this looks like may be it?

  21. Allie

    >___> I’m so upset that these are exceeding my expectation, means less money in my pockets!

  22. Audrey

    Oooohh.. *drool*.. I’m gonna get me one of these ;)

  23. It looks gorgeous on your cheeks, Christine.
    When you say the product will be available at all MAC locations and counters, do you mean world-wide or just in US?

    • U.S. launch date, but this collection will be available internationally. We posted about the collection with its full details awhile ago, so you can always read that post for official details! :)

  24. Anaïs

    Does it look like Gilda from Nars ? If it’s similar I don’t need it…

  25. Jemma

    Hi Christine,
    If you were only going to get one of the blushes from this collection which would it be? i am about the same skin colour as you are? Thanks so much :)

  26. Banana

    Would you say this is too orange for someone who is NW15? It looks like a very pretty bright coral on you, I was hoping for a similar effect!

  27. cchee

    Read someone’s comment that this reminds her of ripe peach, I see this redder ….., in your opinion, how is this compared to ripe peach (spring forecast)? Thank you for your opinion

  28. softy

    IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT … !!!

  29. Ginnia

    This is reminding me of My Paradise…

  30. Faerie

    To me Early Morning looks like the darker side of Ripe Peach blush ombre and Fresh Honey like the lighter side. Yay, money saved for me!

  31. Laura

    Definitely going to pick this up!
