[Review] M.A.C. Azalea in the Afternoon Mineralize Blush

The M.A.C. Azalea in the Afternoon Mineralize Blush is one of the two blush in the Fantasy of Flowers Collection. I thought a review will help a lot of you who are deciding whether to get the blush because this is a limited edition, and probably one of the best seller item in the collection.

The color:
It is a frosty dusty pink with cool undertone. In some ways, it looks a bit of coral pink. When applied, it gives a pearl finish, almost give that highlighting effect in certain angle when the light hits.

The texture:
The blush is from the M.A.C. Mineralize line which give lightweight texture. When applied, it gives that thin sheen texture. The color appears sheer but buildable.

To a certain extend, I think it looks like a NARS Deep Thr**t, so I make a brief comparison of the two:

On the pan they both look pretty similar, except Azalea in the Afternoon has obvious pearl-shimmer on the pan. When swatched, Deep Thr**t looks more coral. However, when applied on the face, they both look undifferentiated.

If this blush is not for you, in the same collection, there's is another Mineralize Blush in a darker shade called Petal Power which resembles NARS Org**m.

The M.A.C. Azalea in the Afternoon Mineralize Blush is a limited edition shade. I believe it is still available in most M.A.C. store. If you want it, I urge you to go to the store and swatch it to see if it suits you. Grab it fast before it runs out. For a more convenient option, you can purchase from M.A.C. online store <<here>>. Price RM100.

Love both color Azalea and Petal Power!
I think I prefer MAC Azalea in the Afternoon than NARs. Same goes to Petal Power than NARs Org***.
Hmm. This is so not ok! Haha. I just bought Rihanna Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass! Can resist them after I tested on my lips. It gave the 3D effect! *love*

@Nydia Anies: The MAC's texture is certainly win NARS one because of its baked formula. In terms of texture I love the MAC's one, but in terms of color, I still love Deep Thrt. Haha... The color suit my skin tone more.
