Review and swatches: MAC Mineralize Blush in Petal Power

When I hear the words Flower Power, it reminds me of the 1970s hippy movement! Freedom, happiness, unwashed hair, long hair, long beards, and illegal grass.

Which brings me to something that should be against the law! It’s MAC’s Mineralize blush in Petal Power!
This blush should be banned because it is so beautiful that when you wear it, you are more than likely to cause road accidents because passing motorists will be fixated on you and not the road. Perhaps, it should be included one of the hazards when taking a driver’s license test, what do you think?

As MAC Mineralize blushes go, the formula of the powder is finely milled so application is exceptionally sheer. It goes on lightly and is easy to build to your desired intensity. Truthfully, you really can’t overdo this blush, unless you build it to 7,7 layers!

MAC ‘s Petal Power is a coral pink with an undeniably breathtaking golden sheen.

Looks great in the pan and even better on the cheeks!

It’s not one of those ‘I woke up like this’ blushes because the golden shimmer is quite intense. Spritz your face with some MAC Fix+ or any hydrating mist and the golden tones pop, insanely!!!!!

This shade will suit anyone from the fairest of the fair to the darkest chocolate. However, this blush truly shines on olive and tan skin tones.

MAC’s mineralize blushes are not the most longwearing but it’s pretty decent, getting a good 6 hours of wear before noticeable fading.

I am not the biggest fan of the new packaging, which has an indentented bottom.


And a see-through circle on the lid. I find it very difficult to open, but there is a method and you will master it.


MAC’s Springsheen is almost identical when swatched side by side, but on the cheeks, MAC’s Petal Power has a more golden sheen and leans more coral than peach Yes, there is a difference. OMG! You beauties must be sick of the word golden. But this blush is a treasure.

This is a great blush for anyone who doesn’t want to add highlighter to his or her make up routine every day. This is a blush that can be worn both day and night and looks beautiful paired with a smokey eye!

It screams spring and summer, but, to be honest, I’d wear it all year round.

Where to buy: MAC FFS or counter nationwide

Price: R300

Dupes: There are plenty of cheaper Coral/peachy/pink blushes out there and yes, it is it pretty similar to NARS Orgasm. What makes this special is . . . well . . . that it’s precious.

Yes, I know, it’s sssssspensive, but in my humble opinion, if you aren’t a blush person, this may be the only one you will ever need and it will last you a loooong time! #thepowerofthe petal
