Another BuyaPowa purchase, if you haven't checked them out before, you definitely should. I've wanted a MAC product, since about November time, but never felt I could fork out the money for one, plus I'd have to get on a train and the people behind the counter scare me! But lo and behold, this little gem came on BuyaPowa for a mere £10 p&p inc! So I jumped at the chance, and boy am I glad I did.
Now in the picture I saw on BuyaPowa, which is the same as on the MAC website, it looked a lot pinker than this, which lets face it is an orangey peach colour, and I was slightly disappointed, but not for long!
I soon realised, I don't need another pink-esque blusher, I have 'em. I did buy a peach blush not to long ago, but this isn't any ordinary peach blush, oh no, this is something special. This is a blush, contour and highlight all in one little (gorgeously packaged!) pot.
I just dab my big blush brush (random one from Boots) just so the middle of the brush has colour on in, and then swirl it where I would contour, and bring it onto my cheeks like blush, and the effect? I love it. It's dark enough to give me a slight contour, light enough to give colour to my cheeks AND (as if it doesn't do enough) it also highlights.
This my lovely chums, is an all in one item! And I've got to say I think it might be love! If find myself applying it throughout the day if my other make-up has worn off, because I just love it! I don't care how sad that sounds!

And, not only does it look great on the cheeks (if I do say so myself,) I also placed it in the crease of my eye, along with my On and On Bronze Maybelline color tattoo, and I must say, I think they work beautifully together.
And here is how it looked all together.
I've gotta say, I really like it, and think it will be great for the up coming summer months. Just throw it on, quick, simple and may I say, effective.
My one gripe is that it doesn't last very long, around 2-3 hours so touch ups will be needed, but I love it that much, it doesn't bother me.
Do you own any mineralize blushes? What do you recommend I get next/look out for from MAC?
