Hello, beauties! Hope your week got off to a good start. Today I'm reviewing another barely-there natural blush color. I'm talking about MAC's Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. This is a blush I thought I would never get because it's a Mineralize finish. I had the misconception that this meant overly shimmery/frosty. I honestly bought this because I heard Sharon mention on one of her videos that Warm Soul was the most beautiful blush ever. Although everyone has different preferences, when someone says a product is their absolute favorite I feel like I should check it out because there must be something really good about it! Like I said, I was hesitant because it's a Mineralize finish and because Sharon is very pale so I thought this might not show up on me. After swatching it at the MAC Store I decided it was too pretty to pass up.
Color
At first glance it looked a bit average, but when I checked my blush collection I found that I had nothing similar to Warm Soul. I'd say Warm Soul is a natural burnt peach (if that even makes sense). It's  not nearly as pink as NARS Orgasm but much more orange than a natural tan color like NARS Douceur
Finish
The gold shimmer in Warm Soul is very fine and subtle. Once applied it looks much closer to being a satin than a glitter finish. As you can see it's not nearly as glittery-looking as Orgasm.
Formula
It's pigmented but not opaque. It's the type of blush that is hard to overdo because it has a bit of sheerness. Plus the color is somewhat light. The texture is really soft and it blends like a dream. The lasting power is average. 
Overall
I adore this blush, it's beautiful buuutt unlike Douceur, I think it's actually too light for my skintone. I need to build it up and the peachyness gets somewhat lost on my warm toned face. I don't regret purchasing it because it's great for daytime and has such a nice texture. I just wish it showed up more easily on me. Although I must make a disclaimer! It's much more noticeable in person, but I have a hard time photographing light blushes like this one. And standing in front of a window doesn't help! It totally washes me out, but it's the best lighting.

  2. You're turning me into a blush hoarder LOL I can't afford Mac, but NYX it's at hand and I just can't resist stocking up on them when they're on sale hehe This is a beautiful colour, it looks lovely on you, it might look good on me too, ahhhhh!!! now I want it haha
    Maybe you should look for bolder shades, like a straight up orange but then apply it with a very light hand, that way the "peachyness" will totally show up on you ^^ xx

    1. NYX blushes are super nice and soft!! I sadly don't own enough because the only place that sells NYX where I live is Walmart which is hours away :(
      That's a great suggestion, Lau :)

    1. The color seems like the perfect color for tanned skin but it will need some building up xx

  6. This looks really good on you but it's a shame that it's that sheer! I would pick this up if it was more on the pigmented side, but I think I'll skip it. Still, I might go get my sister to swatch this. She's definitely fairer than me so this might work for her :) xx

  9. This reminds me of Nars Madly that I love! I must check out the Mac Mineralize Blush formula, it is something that I have overlooked in the past for the reason that you mentioned :)

  13. I've always thought that Warm Soul would be far too shimmery/frosty for my liking, but it looks gorgeous! x

  18. I don't know if it's the blush or just your natural skin tone and glow but it looks gorgeous! I could totally see myself getting this blush for the summer. I think it'd be a tad to warm for my cool and pale skin, haha. Dang it, cause it's beautiful!

  35. I love the "burnt peach" colour description you gave, it's pretty spot on (and I love naming colours haha). I love how it gives such a subtle warmth, would be lovely for the summer time xx

  36. I own this and it looks more of a sheer mauve-like blush on me(I have lost the words I use to describe it haha) similar to NARS Sin (which I don't own lol) more than a burnt peach. I had to buy it after one of my fave youtubers used it in many looks for a barely there blush that wouldn't compete with a bold eyes & lips look. It looks gorgeous on you although it probably is a tad too light to be noticeable. Nice review! xx

  37. Love those! Perfect amount of shimmer

  38. MAC kills me with their blushes, they always look so perfect and pretty!
    OH also, what are you wearing in your waterline? It looks so natural but still makes your eyes pop!
