MAC Petal Power Blush Review & Swatches

MAC Petal Power Mineralize Blush

YOU NEED MAC Petal Powder Blush! Absolutely positively NEED it. Best blush shade I’ve come across a really time! It’s the Mercedes of NARS Orgasm shades.

MAC Petal Power Blush is one of two new shades that’s available for a limited time with the MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Collection for Spring 2014.

So gorgeous!

Take a look!

MAC Petal Power Mineralize Blush ($25) is what MAC Dubs a coral pink with gold shimmer. Personally I think it’s more of an golden coral with a hard orange undertone. It has a luminous glow on cheeks with a beautiful golden peach finish! I’d liken the shades to the Balm Hot Mama and NARS Orgasm but the orange makes it more vibrant, more bold, more dramatic, just more everything.

The texture is a smooth, baked formula that applies and blends beautifully. It has a slight issue with clinging to drier areas but blend, blend, blend for the smoothest finish on drier skin. It lasts for a solid 8 hours on my skin without fading or losing intensity.

I think NARS Orgasm has more pink to it where as this has a good deal more orange which makes it a bit different but the shades are still sisters none the less.

If you’re look for a beautiful golden coral shade for Spring and Summer looks you’ll NEED this.

I loved it so much I grabbed a back up!

    I’ve been trying so hard to ignore this blush lol. It’s so insanely gorgeous on everyone! I don’t need anymore blushes but this is so tempting

    Had a MAC MUA apply this blush on my cheeks after using the neutralize loose CC powder. I typically don’t gravitate to this type of shades, but needless to say, I immediately bought it. This blush is just so darn gorgeous.

  • 2/11/14 2:07 Sara:

    I have been deliberating this for so long…. seems like I should stop and just get it! It’s so beautiful!


    • 2/11/14 9:21 Isabella Muse:

      GET IT NOW! ;-D before it sells out!


  • 2/11/14 10:25 Lauren:

    I want this!!! Do I need it if I have the Nars “O” as well as Tarte Glisten (And more blushes than any person can use in 2 lifetimes)?


    • 2/11/14 17:42 Barb:

      you are my twin… and the answer is YES!!


  • 2/11/14 14:59 Nicole:

    Does this have a matte finish? I have oily skin and can’t really do too much shimmer in my blush as it makes my pores look larger. Thanks!


  • 2/12/14 22:04 Lisa Marie:

    Looove this blush on you! So gorge! After seeing this post, I am about 90% leaning towards buying this blush…however, do you have MAC’s Warm Soul blush? I was wondering if it’s similar.


    • 2/14/14 14:54 Isabella Muse:

      i don’t I’m sorry Lisa….! and thank YOU! it’s a really lovely shade :)


  • 2/12/14 23:28 Eli Caroline:

  • 2/18/14 14:10 Luiza:

    I love my Nars Orgasm but always thought it would be more flattering on me if it had less pink.. Hopefully this one by MAC comes to Brazil and I can pick it up!


  • 2/20/14 10:01 Sarah Kipling:

    So I went to buy this and came home with Azalea in the Afternoon as well! It was the last one – I couldn’t leave it behind! And picked up Rebel lipstick as well. I blame you of course! LOL.


    • 2/20/14 10:12 Isabella Muse:

      lol sorry! tell me more about Azalea in the Afternoon, do I need it?! I didn’t get it but kinda regret it :)
