MAC 'Sun and Moon' mineralize blush

15 May 2012

I bought this blush recently from a blog sale as I missed it when it was released in 2010, but had been lusting over it in swatches on various blogs. If you don't like possible orange blushes, then this isn't one for you. However, note the word possible - used well, and this blush is stunning. 'Sun and Moon' is in that fine line of between being a blush and a bronzer, however it's definitely not as harsh as some bronzers can be.

Sun and Moon is mainly a deep beige/brown, with some pink/red hues in it, so it does have some good versatility. When mixed together, you get a hint of peach and copper. If you don't like shimmer, MAC Mineralize blushes are generally good to steer clear from, and this one is no exception. However, if you're like me and love shimmer then this is stunning on the skin. MAC Strobe Cream really seems to compliment this blush well, and when you're in the sunlight, it's got such a lovely effect.

L-R: Both shades swatched harshly, and then a blend of the two lightly

This is definitely going to be one of my go-to's for the Summer I think. Unfortunately it's not around to buy at the moment as it was from a collection but keep an eye out for it as it's a really lovely blush - so glad I got my hands on it finally! What are your fav mineralize blushes?

  5. i really like the name of this and it just looks so gorgeous in the pan. I do have a few mineralize blushes from MAC and i like the way that they are quite buildable and you can get the desired intensity you want. And yep, when your in the sun and it catches the shimmers, it looks really pretty :) I really like this product and its a shame that its limited edition but ohwells, hope there will be more products in the market that are similar hehe.
