Review: MAC Warm Soul Blush
Disclaimer: The product featured in this post was purchased by me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
