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.

 @Christine (Temptalia)
 Thanks I guess since I’m still scared of subtle breeze maybe i don’t need brighter bolder things right now

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.

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!

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?

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!

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.

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
