MAC Amber Glow Mineralize Blush
MAC Apres Chic: Amber Glow
MAC Amber Glow Mineralize Blush ($23.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as “warm peach.” It is a soft peach with a hint of pink–almost apricot-like–with a pale champagne shimmer. NARS Sex Appeal is a touch pinker, and it doesn’t have any shimmer. MAC By Candlelight is warmer, rosier, and very metallic in comparison. MAC Porcelain Pink is pinker and appears much more metallic on the skin.
This has a soft, luminous finish to it that works well on the skin. It’s not frosted, and it’s not too shimmery, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or skin imperfections. Though it seems plenty pigmented, the color blends out quickly, so depending on the intensity you want, you may have to pat and very lightly blend along the edges. The texture is finely-milled, but it is also powdery. Those with natural redness in their cheeks may find this a quick and easy way to neutralize it without adding too much color. I only wish Amber Glow lasted longer once applied–I get a mere six hours; by seven, it’s half gone!
