MAC Just a Wisp Mineralize Blush ($27.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pink.” It’s a light, cool-toned pink with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. The highly reflective finish is actually what makes this less similar than other pale pinks I’ve come across. Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is more muted, more matte. Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is more matte. Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is more matte. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Pink Buttercream (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This is another new (and permanent!) shade that’s been added to the Mineralize Blush range in the new, updated packaging. It had semi-opaque coverage in one layer, but it was buildable to full coverage in two layers or easily blended out for sheerer color. If you use a fan brush and a light hand, it becomes more of a pink-tinged highlighter. The high shimmer content makes it more wearable on darker complexions as well, as it doesn’t appear chalky at all, but it would make for a nice, soft pink blush on fairer complexions as well. The finish is quite reflective but seemed to only emphasize pores very, very slightly–something I only noticed when I looked exactly for that but felt like you couldn’t really tell at a distance. The texture was soft, lightly powdery, but smooth and silky to the touch. This shade wore well for seven hours before it turned a bit patchy.

I think it looks beautiful!
I own two mac mineralize blushes, warm soul and petal power and I really like both of them.. I have to check this one out πŸ˜‰

Warm soul is AMAAAAAZING when I need a neutralish cheek color from summer to fall. I am still looking for a nice cool toned blush for winter and spring. Im going to try this on locally and see if it doesn’t make me look like a hot mess with my rosacea.

I can’t with frosty blushes… the color is pretty but it has too much frost. Satin or matte blushes tend to look the best. I have a few shimmery blushes that look good on, but you really have to find the right color.

I may like the new formula, but the packaging is so ugly. πŸ™ I loved the old MSF and blush packaging so much and now my collection won’t look as organized as before…

I’m super impressed at the smoothness/non-pore-emphasizingness of this finish, because it seems *super* metallic and shimmery to me! Now, I’m all for shimmer in my eyeshadows, and lipglosses, but somehow I’m a very plain matte girl when it comes to blushes πŸ˜› This would make a nice highlighter, though!
