This collection of Mineralize Blush is reminiscent of an end of summer sunset: warm, soft, shimmering shades of pink, gold and bronze that take you right into fall without skipping a step. The baked powder formula allows for exceptionally sheer and lightweight application. It builds colour without heavy coverage. Super-fine provides soft shimmer on skin. The blush enhances and veils the cheekbones for a luminous complexion. Can be worn on face, eyes and/or body. Use with the 181 Buffer Brush for flawless blending, even colour. Everyday-efficient, travel-size small, it’s built for speed.

It’s more about how pigmented you’ll want your blush (which I can’t speak to since I haven’t seen them in person yet!) and any personal preferences!

in lovee, seriously.. whats the difference between the kabuki and the 181? cuz i think mines a 182. idk but i saw they released the 3 on mac, well almost released it has coming soon, which means SOOON AHH! ha <3

Wouldn’t mind aquiring the brush. The mineralized blushes though? Meh. I already have enough blush to keep me busy for the rest of my life.

i swatched these at the store and they’re sooo smooth to apply. A whint of shimmer and very pigmented (on me anyway). i was so tempted to buy love thing and merrily but they look too similar in colour and finish, as my soft flame loose beauty powder released last year.

fanx christine
yea it wus pleasantry came diz morin itz absolutly a fing 4 pinks so just ad 2 have it 😀 defo 1 ov mi favz frm mac

Not yet Christine, I need your advice this pleasantry suit to NC 30 ?
Actually I rather confused if this Sonic Chic available
at my country Indonesia ? The SA/MA couldn’t give me fix information


As far as I know, Sonic Chic was a regular release, so if most of the launches come your way, it should, too… I didn’t like it on me (NC30), but it’s not a bad color. I found it too bright for my personal preference.

Ok … I believe you already saw the whole collection,
I already have peach blush I need the pink one.

Could you advice me what shade from this collection that suit for NC 30 ?

Sorry another question I order Fankly scarlet from MAC Pro this is yay or not yay ?

Hi Classic,

I really loved Dainty for a pink – it’s so lovely. Gentle is also nice, more of a raspberry pink, though.

Frankly Scarlet is a BOLD blush, very red. Go gentle with it!

Oh no! When are you getting your hands on them Christine? They have been releases over here and without your reviews I’m gonna go broke getting ALL!
