MAC Mineralized Blush A little bit of Sunshine review/ swatch

MAC Mineralize Blush duo from in the groove collection- A little bit of Sunshine is reviewed below.

Here it is in the pan- one side is a shimmery warm golden bronze, not quite coral, the other side is a more matte looking mid tone tan. The shimmer factor is a lot less when just looking in the pan.

This picture below looks paler due to flash photography:

Swatches below

Bottom swatch is blended look. It's quite true to color compared to what is in the pan- the lighter side is a shimmery (not quite glittery but definitely visible shimmers) warm bronze with a hint of gold, while the other side is a slightly dirty looking mid tone brown tan shade. When blended it's a soft shimmery golden bronze.

The shade definitely has the tendancy to look slightly too orange and dirty on those with pale skin. You can see the tan shade is rather muddy and too brown on my skintone. I've tried using this as a contour shade but it's still too brown/ tan on my pale skin (I'm about the lightest shade or second lightest shade in most Japanese foundations, and 2nd lightest in most western brand foundations).

When used with a very light hand it works just barely for me, as a warmed coral bronze blush. However it just turns muddy quite easily without careful application or coordination with the rest of the makeup look.

Overall 3/5 for quality and 2/5 for color- it's not the most finely milled or soft blending blush (which is the common issue with anyone who doesn't love the MAC mineralized blushes). However they are fun to play with and having 2 shades in the pan is very handy.
