MAC Too Fabulous Collection Mineralize Blush Duo Reviews and Swatches

The new and limited edition Mineralize Blush Duo ($23) from the latest MAC Too Fabulous Collection combines 2 complementary colors that swirl into an abstract pattern to deliver “sheer colour and a soft, dimensional pearl finish”.

Two Virtues is a cool-based light pink paired with a light violet, which are both really pretty. The pink is identical to that in the Love Rock Mineralize Blush Duo.

Buddy Up contains a rosy bronze and a warm medium pink.

Rhapsody in Two is a light champagne color paired with a pale pink. Perfect combo as a highlighter and blush for light skin.

Bi-Tone is a gorgeous combo of rosy pink with a coppery bronze. Both colors show up super pigmented but also have the chunkiest texture, especially the bronze.

Sun & Moon is a light bronze color paired with a pink brown.

Chic Couple is a light bronze paired with a peachy brown. Very similar to Sun & Moon.

Just like the Mineralize Blush Duos that were previously released, these new ones are very frosty with great color payoff. Most of them have a smooth texture but the brown ones tend to be more gritty. The color selection is nice but could definitely use more variety. These colors have been done over and over again.

  1. YAY! I bought rhapsody in two today and I love it. I find it stays on all day unlike the other highlighters MAC has.

    Phyllis… I noticed this mineralized blush/highlighter stays on better than other ones.. is that true for the other mineralized products? (powder, eyeshadow)?

  2. Oh I just bought the rhapsody in two! I agree, it works so well as a highlighter! I always add it with this darker blush shade called “flirt & tease” so my cheeks look all rosy and not so pale. :)
