A supernova may be a dead star, but such is not the case when talking about MAC’s Mineralize Blush in Supernova. It’s actually the star of the Heavenly Creature collection, currently sold out according to MAC’s official site. Luckily, I was able to receive it before it sold out. If you’re thinking of looking towards other means of acquiring it, hopefully this review will help you in making decisions.
Our opinions on packaging and performance regarding MAC Mineralize Blush hasn’t change much from our previous review. This review of MAC Mineralize Blush in Supernova will focus on the color.
Supernova is described as a magenta and burnished gold melange. While that may be true on the surface, blended in it looks like a bold, shimmery fuchsia. It’s highly pigmented so it’s super important that you remember to tap off excess blush after swirling it with your brush. Also, use a light hand when applying this blush. I wasn’t aware that the blush would be so pigmented initially so the first set of pictures after the first application feature me looking clown-ish.
Supernova is a rare time in which my one complaint about this blush is that it’s so pigmented. Unless you want to look like a clown, you really have to take care and place much attention on how much is getting applied to your face. It’s a gorgeous color when you have the application right, but doing it right makes me a bit uneasy. It’s a lot more work to tone down a strong blush than it is to put it on!
On the plus side, this shade will look gorgeous on darker skin! Also, it will last you a bit since you don’t require too much of it. Lastly, no complaints of it enhancing pores.
It’s currently sold out online, but with some lucky, you may be able to pick it up in stores where MAC is sold.
