Pink Blush? MAC In the Groove Hang Loose Mineralize Blush Review

MAC In The Groove Collection – MAC Hang Loose Mineralize Blush

MAC Hang Loose Mineralize blush came with MAC In the Groove Collection. Actually I was traveling when the collection was released so received my products even later.

Anyway MAC Hang Loose Mineralize blush is a duo of two cool shades – dolly pink colour and pale lavender shade.

Mineralize blushes or eye shadows are very delicate, a little mishandling breaks them into pieces. ๐Ÿ™ Since mine came by courier, it got broken. I also received a mineralize eyeshadow trio but thankfully that didn’t break.

This is for the first time anything from my makeup collection has broken. It breaks me heart to see it in such a condition. but anyway, after the review, I am going to crush both the shades nicely with a spoon, transfer then to separate jars and use them loose. ๐Ÿ™‚

Regarding the shades : The pink is a dolly pink shade with slight sheen, it’s mostly matte but it has soft sheen to it. The lavender is very light lavander shade with high silvery sheen to it. It’s more silver than lavender.

The funny part is the both the shades just don’t show on me. ๐Ÿ˜› Both the colours are very cool toned and they completely contradict with my yellow undertones. When I wear pink alone, it doesn’t blend into my skin. It screams BABY PINK on my cheeks and the lavender just looks silver on my skin. If I wear the together, again nothing happens. It just looks I have something silvery on my skin. I have tried applying pink more and lavender less, it starts looking OTT. I am planning to mix the pink in my loose powder and use it all over my face. (Thanks, Rima. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I am in a way happy that the blush broke, I can use it in a better way now. he he

MAC Hang Loose mineralize blush would look best on people who are very fair (NC 25 or less, I am NC 35 ) or those who have pink undertones. It would serve as their natural blush.

This is for the first time I am using mineralogy blush from MAC, I simply loved the texture and the pigment. They are super smooth and goes on nicely on your cheeks. They do not accentuate the pores. The staying power I would say is nothing exceptional.

Overall, I would have loved these had the shade matched my skin tone. And don’t worry of your blush or eyeshadow breaks. Just crush them completely and transfer them to small jars. They would do the job well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you used MAC Mineralize blushes?

    So I try to get these kind of products right at the store. At least this Blush Duo is a great color combination, even if the product is broken it keeps its quality on face. :-))

  10. Rati and Rads — is it ok to apply blush without foundation ?
    i tried it and it looked yuk………… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    for office is blush ok or just kajal and lip gloss is enuf ?

    u can see me at the office 12/6 or even 12/7 :fighterf:

    1. Veena,

      YOu can apply cream blush on bare skin but powder blush would accentuate your pores or go patchy if you apply it directly. Not only that it would disappear pretty soon.

      If you apply powder blush have some kind of base – primer, foundation or tinted moisturizer to make it stay and look even.

      Blushes for office are good. Pick up matte blushes, no shimmer. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Coffee and cookies please.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. laaa laa laaa laaa laaa laaaaa laaaa………

    hehehehehehhehehe……. btw how do u manage to look so cute in the pics :smug: ?????? i know u r devil inside…… huahahhahaha… but koi ” fight ni ” ๐Ÿ˜› :kissed: :giggle:

  12. I love makeup as much as the next girl on this site…but can someone explain to me how this lavender blush is supposed to be working ?:-)
    It’s leaving me rather perplexed!

  13. Rati, I have to admit that peaches and corals are your colours, whether it be blushes or lipsticks. I soooooooooooo loved (and lusting after) that MUFE HD blush no. 6 you showed recently, awesome colour and it looks stunning on you.

      1. oh… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› …Know what? I bought this Revlon colorstay liquid lipstick, the one you reviewed here, and I found it to be of similar texture to my Maxfactor liquid color, totally drying the lips ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ . So, I’ve started using it in the same way, apply gloss, then color, then gloss. This way it is working quite well for me!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
        .-= calicoaster´s last blog ..My small weekend haul =-.

          1. no…I bought it before the review later after coming back!! My bad ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ !! …still the shade was so nice, I couldn’t resist buying it. I have all pink and lavender shades. This was light brown one, which I really liked!! :-)) :-))
