MAC Pressed Amber Mineralize Blush ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “melange of nude, beige, and brown” that all comes together as a medium-dark, muted brown.  It’s brown without being overly warm or dark–no chocolate, bronze, or the like here.  It’s more aptly described a brown nude, I would say, because it retains a lot of the natural color found in the skin.  The texture is like Feeling Flush, with a very soft, smooth powder without frost or glitter.  It has a satin-like sheen that looks natural when applied to the skin.  This product could benefit from improved wear, though, as I do find it fades faster than the average blush–I get around six hours of wear (tested this shade yesterday) before it begins its fading decline.

It reminded me of a darker, less orange version of MAC Peachtwist. It doesn’t have the plum notes that MAC Darkly My Dear has. It ends up being closer to MAC Prim & Proper but a little darker, browner. It’s also comparable to Korres #15 Natural Blush without any gold sheen/shimmer. It’s darker and less pink compared to MAC Eversun.

From your (always helpful) swatches, Hint of Sapphire is really lacking in all elements as a mineralized eyeshadow but somehow I like how it looks on you here!

Christine, do you think it would suit a NC33-40? I love how it looks on you, but I’m afraid it might make my cheeks look dirty. 🙁

Can this blush be used as a bronzer for people with lighter skin?? I’m nw20 so i feel like as a blush it would be to dark but as bronzer it might work?

I love Prim and Proper and am bringing it with me to swatch lol I just hope that this is still different enough to justify getting it.

that’s a great shade when you want your lips and/or eyes to do the talking, but you want a finished, healthy look! super pretty on you!

I really like some of the Mineralize blushes and skinfinishes coming out…but something in them and really all blushes makes my cheeks so itchy. Any idea what could be causing that?
