MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Blush in Simmer Review, Photos & Swatches

MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Blush in Simmer

The MAC Tropical Taboo Collection for Summer 2013 includes five MAC Mineralize Blushes ($25 USD / $29.50 CAD), in beautiful, celestial-looking shades with colored veining. This limited-edition collection features a beautiful array of glowing, mineralized products and bold, tropical hues. Available online now and in store June 26, 2013 (North America), July 2013 (International excluding China) & August 2013 (China) at MAC.

The Mineralize Blush that I have from the collection is Simmer, a burnt rose shade with gorgeous gold veining. MAC Mineralize Blushes (and all other Mineralize powders with veining) are all unique- they have different veining patterns and sometimes you’ll get more of one shade than another which can really affect the final result. If you go to a store, you can ask to see different ones to ensure you choose one that has the amount of color you desire.

I really love MAC Mineralize Blushes- I think they are some of the best Mineralize products that MAC offer. Not only are they beautiful, but they are usually gorgeously pigmented and offer a flawless finish. All of the mineral products are quite shimmery though, so that’s something to keep in mind if you aren’t a fan of frosty blushes. To me, they are like a smaller, better version of MSFs (which is totally fine with me, considering they are so pigmented they will last a long time on their own)!

Simmer is really beautiful- I’m a huge fan of the burnt rose / red wine shades, but mostly for fall (I think it’s a little dark for summer). The gold shimmer really does help to lighten it up and give a healthy glow to the skin as well. It’s ultra pigmented, so only a little is needed and it blends very well on the skin. I also find that because it’s a little more bold, it lasts much longer on the cheeks! Also, remember they are very fragile products, so be careful when travelling with them.
