MAC Naturally Mineralized Blushes

This is a continuation of a few products that I purchased from the MAC Naturally collection which was released at the beginning of the year (yup, a long time ago).  Although these shades are limited edition shades that can't be found at the MAC counters anymore, you can probably find them at your local CCO or find similar shades from other brands.

Along with the mineralized eye shadows from the collection, I also picked up the following mineralized blushes:

Fresh Honey

Fresh honey is a light orange, apricot color that is very pigmented and does not suit warm skin tones when applied too heavily.  The texture of the blush is very soft, which helps with blending, but can be a bit chalky on the skin if not applied carefully.  Fresh Honey definitely screams Spring and Summer, and looks beautiful on darker skin tones.  However, when applied lightly and blended out, I think it'll look beautiful on anyone.

Subtle Breeze

Subtle Breeze is a cool tone pink that works well with any type of skin tone in my opinion.  It's a beautiful color that is very pigmented, but does not apply too harshly on the cheeks.  Unlike Fresh Honey, Subtle Breeze applies more smoothly and does not leave any chalkiness on the skin.  It leaves a nice sheen on the cheeks, more of a satin finish than a shimmery one.  Definitely a universally flattering color.

Although the mineralized blushes are a bit more difficult to work with, because of their extremely soft texture, they are still easily blendable.  So with a bit a patience and maneuvering with your brush, any mineralized blush can look beautiful on your skin.  Out of the two shades, I do prefer Subtle Breeze because it was easier to work with and I did not have to worry about applying it with a light hand.  Overall, both of the shades are beautiful blushes for the warmer seasons.
