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.

MAC Petal Power Blush swatches

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!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I have an entire drawer of blushes that I’ve just reorganised and now I want this – WANT IT – so thanks for that 😉 xx

  • Crystal

    My first post..long time lurker. I absolutely love this color this blush on you – it’s beautiful. I just bought a couple items per your fantasy of flowers post and hope to put up a video soon. Again, I love your style Isabella and keep up the great work 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks crystal for taking time to comment 🙂 I actually don’t do videos as you probably know as a long time reader ;-D but thank you so much appreciate the kind words!

  • Anayz

    I totally agree with you. I got mines today and omgggg. Im in love!!!!. It’s a beautiful blush. Worth the $$$

  • Fancie

    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

  • Let

    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.

  • Sara

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

  • 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)?

  • 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!

  • 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.

    • Isabella Muse

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

  • Suraiya Khan

    i love your comments and yr advise….its really saves my husbands pocket…heheh…tks.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    • 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 🙂
