MAC Naturally: Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush

MAC Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “blue-pink.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based pink with a subtle pink glow. NYX English Rose is a bit lighter. Bobbi Brown Pretty Pink is less blue-based. MAC Briar Rose looks similar on cheeks, though a bit cooler-toned. ¬†Though it does lean cool, I found it very wearable on my warmer complexion. ¬†It has good color payoff without being too intense, so it’s buildable but workable without having to use a very light hand.

The texture is soft like silk without being powdery, so it’s easy to apply, extremely blendable, and the finish is incredibly natural and glowy. It’s not high-shine or lots of sheen and shimmer. 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.

  2. sara

    So pretty on you! Will definitely check this one out :]

  3. Jackie

    Gorgeous! How does this compare to the Chanel Horizon blush? I’m trying to find a more affordable alternative… Thinking I might just need to splurge!

  4. lovely!! How close is this to long discontinued Mineralize blush in Pleasantry?

  5. livnzoe

    i love this blush.. but i wonder if there is a big difference between mac’s fleur power and this one??
    thank you christine!!

    This is totally “my” sort of colour and I love MAC’s mineralized blushes. Oh dear – I just got a new MAC blush for Xmas from my son and now I’m craving this baby!

  7. Zara

    Is this similar to theBalms downboy?

  8. Annie

    How does it compare to Well Dressed? They look fairly similar to me but this might have more of a sheen.

    OoOoo pretty!!!! I’m really liking most of this collection!
    BTW totally unrelated, but yo have BEAUTIFUL teeth Christine! :) Do you whiten or are you just lucky?

  10. Ah! Helloooo, pretty photos. I feel like the depth of focus is shallower than usual in your Naturally posts, or the photos are brighter, or something? Idk, I’m probably way off-base, but I’m LOVING these shots!

    Of course, the gorgeous products are definitely helping, too :P

  11. Denise

    OMG… you look so pretty with these new MAC cosmetics! You’re beautiful in every picture you post. However, this picture wins the prize… maybe it’s the angle???

  12. Emma

    This looks beautiful!!

  13. Tracy

    I know we’re talking about blushes, which is really nice by the way, but wow, I’m loving your lipstick color !! What is it ???

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brenda Bribri

    Do you think it would show on darker complexions?

  15. Diane

    How does it compare to MAC Dainty? Thanks!

  16. Nastassia

    You look beautiful Christine!!

    My only question is how good is the pigmentation to show up on my NW-45 skin? :)

  17. Ainsley

    How does this compare to Nars Desire?

  18. Natasha

    Love the swatch! Would it work on darker South Asian skin? Also, is it similar to Stereo Rose?

  19. Amanda

    How would this show up on NC44 complexion?

  20. Such a nice shade! Its the only product that really stands out of this collection tbh.

  21. Kathleen

    Is this similar to MAC tippy from the Hello Kitty collection?

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sarah Sarah

    I think this is my favourite!

  23. Karhinoplastie

    It’s very pretty, but it doesn’t look very cool-toned to me! I have yet to find a true blue-based pink blush that still looks blue-based once applied.

    Anyway, no matter if the blush is cool-toned or not… It looks PERFECT on you!

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Priya Priya

    This blush looks amazing! Is the shimmer noticeable? I want a blush that looks super natural for everyday (college classes and all). Thanks!

  25. Michelle

    This is such a pretty colour! I’ve just got one question, does a cool toned bluish pink blush look well on a warm toned nw20 complexion? Thanks

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brenda brenda

    I ordered this as i missed out on Briar Rose – and Christine, I’m really liking the full face pictures for blush!!! The angle shows your gorgeous cheeks off!!

  27. Jenn

    Christine, what are the benefits of mineralized blushes over normal powder blushes? Because they are pricier yet contain half the product!

  28. Ana

    which one do you think would look better on a NC15 skin… this one or tarte dollface?

  29. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Tralonda Tralonda Berkley

    I love this look on you, the lips are perfect and make the blush stand out. Amazing!!!

    I tried this on in the store and was surprised how much I liked it.
    After buying MAC’s “Pinch Me” some time ago and disliking it (too warm/red/dark for me) I had actually sworn off pink blushes, but I see now that I probably just needed a cooler/lighter/more blue-toned one? I have now tried on “Subtle Breeze” two more times and I love it but I just don’t think that it lasts very long at all!! Does anybody know of a longer lasting (maybe creme) blush in a similar shade?
