MAC Supernova Mineralize Blush

MAC Supernova Mineralize Blush ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “magenta and burnished gold melange.” It’s a brightened raspberry pink with subtle blue undertones and a subtle sheen. It contains swirls of golden peach-orange and neon magenta pink. MAC Weekend Getaway is similar in color when used softly. Tom Ford Wicked is cooler-toned, frostier, and lighter. Tarte Amused is much brighter and bluer-based. Illamasqua Seduce is similar, slightly more plum. MAC Feeling Flush is a bit lighter and cooler-toned. MAC Amazonian Princess is comparable, slightly redder. MAC Full Fuchsia is a bit more fuchsia.

This shade applied smoothly without emphasizing pores or any imperfections of my skin’s texture, but it wasn’t quite as blendable as I’d expect. It’s not stubborn, but I wouldn’t say it’s easily blended and diffused–just so-so there. It’s very pigmented, so a light hand is a must, and if you want something soft and sheer, I’d recommend using a stippling brush like MAC’s 188. Because it’s not super blue-based, it should work well across under tones, and the intense color payoff means it will be viable on the lightest and deepest complexions. Supernova wore seven and a half hours on me before starting to fade noticeably.

    Such a great color and it looks fab in the pan! 

  2. Kasey

    how much bolder is this tan subtle breeze?

  3. It looks kind of chalky in texture, but maybe that;s the swirls looking off as chalky?

  4. JenniferElizabeth1

    It seems like they’ve been releasing this kind of color a lot lately.

    Oh god. Now I have that Oasis song stuck in my head.
     
    This is gorgeous, though! :) I always gravitate towards this family of colors. They actually give my deathly fair skin some life. If I had the cash, I would definitely be ordering it.

  6. annesophie

    It’s really pretty :)

  7. This is the only blush I’m even remotely interested in.  Most of the Mac blushes lately have been warm-toned and I just look better in cool-toned hues.  I’ll at least give it a try.

    When I saw that this was similar to Tarte Amused (which I have), I thought I’d pass but it looks so different on you, Christine – a bit darker and more dramatic – so I might just have to check this one out!

  12. Kristin

    *cries* I waited too long to order it and it’s sold out. :(

  13. Beautyismaximus

    YESS! This will be sold out for sure! Ive never been to the release day for MAC counters. Does it get crazy and is there long lines?

  14. Dawn Jannelle Lundell

    I want this just because of the name!!

  15. Monica Mora

    No long lines… But sold out products for sure.

  16. Temptalia

    Don’t forget that Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Bloomingdale’s all will launch it online, too

  17. Monica Mora

    And they also do Pre sale.. Im getting mine today.. Down side, I have to wait till next week to get them

  18. Is it sold out already?? Oh man! This one is GORGEOUS! Favorite one thus far!

  19. Eli

    Really, really cute! Want it, but I have so many blushes right now :)

  20. Carrie

    Thanks for all the reviews!! :) Is Supernova comparable to Nars Desire?

  21. Avatar of artemis artemis

    it’s pretty cute

  22. Emme

    The swatch looks very reddish, but it’s a lovely pink on you.

  23. Avatar of Sophia SophiaK

    oh it’s sold out already? good thing I din’t really liked that one…pink blush does not fit my red hair

  24. gmarie24

    i just got benefit bella bamba. how do they compare? as a girl with not too many blushes & wanting more different shades, would it be worth having both? thx christine!

  25. Nicola

    I’m loving this colour! I might have to pick it up if I can find it.

  26. I ordered this one Wednesday and it’s supposed to be here tomorrow.  Cannot wait to get it!  The color looks amazing!

  27. corallista

    Gorgeous color! 

  28. Suemalga

  29. Avatar of Sherre shernic82

    Oh, that’s so pretty on you!! I can’t wait to try it at the counter next week.

  30. Dominique33

    I love Supernova, so bright ! I have ( too ) many blushes but I don’t think I have so bright a one !

  31. Avatar of Aida ingerasata

    Just ordered this from Nordstrom. Can’t wait to see it in person. I must admit, I bought it solely because of the name and the way it looks I the pan. Hopefully it will look good on me :D. But I’ll keep it nonetheless as it is the only piece I bought from this collection.

  32. This looks so pretty!

  33. SRE

    Christine, how would this compare to the Grand Duo mineralize blush from Sugarsweet?

  34. Gracey13

    I picked this up today after reading this, I love it! It’s my first time using a mineralize blush! When I swirl my brush in lightly, there’s a lot of excess powder! Are all of the mineralize blushes like that? I don’t mind it that much though! This review was so helpful! Thank you! <3

  35. Avatar of Bari Brjsmom

    This blush is no joke! I’m an nw30 and you need to use a VERY light hand….but the color is very pretty:)

  36. LoryNguyen

    How do this blush compare to lovething?
