That’s READY Color Boost The Adrenaline Rush by bareMinerals on my cheeks

I’ve never thought of having a “power neutral” blush before, but I suppose if one can have a power song that pumps them up (what’s yours?), a blush that you can count on to pump you up seems just as logical. 🙂

Or maybe that’s makeup logic, also known as the same sort of reasoning I use to justify getting another coral lipstick/nude gloss/blue nail polish…


READY Color Boost The Adrenaline Rush by bareMinerals ($29) promises to give a rush of rosy color to your cheeks. It’s new and part of their Power Neutrals collection, a flexible family o’ neutral products designed to accompany you from the boardroom to the bedroom, ooh la la!

A pan of face/cheek powder with a luminous beige, a matte rosy pink and a matte mauve, the shades can be worn individually or mixed together.

I like to mix ’em all together for a light rosy blush with a quiet sheen that leans slightly cool on my cheeks. On my NC42 skin tone, it’s a pretty subtle effect, but I think it still lifts my look a little.

bareMinerals READY® Color Boost is an innovative concept in solid mineral technology. Created through a unique cold-pressed method, this formula combines a proprietary SeaNutritive MineralTM Complex composed of positively-charged, antioxidant-rich sea minerals with cold-pressed camellia oil. Color Boost delivers skin-nourishing benefits for softer, smoother skin while enhancing the complexion with a subtle hint of fresh, radiant color.

Unlike a real adrenaline rush, this one is less fleeting. Actually, it lasts a really, really long time. I wore it last Saturday to Pier 39, and it lasted something like 12 hours, looking fresh the entire time.

Back when my skin was super oily in my teens and 20s, I would’ve loved something like this. Blushes were always pulling disappearing acts on my cheeks back then.

I think I’m just at the borderline of where this could look ashy. If I were much darker at all, it might work better as a highlighter. Just something to think about if you’re a darker damsel or someone who tans easily.

Probably ideal for gals with light and medium skin tones who like cooler pink color temps and long-wearing blushes that practically eliminate the need to touch up.

PRICE: $29
AVAILABILITY: Available now at bareMinerals Boutiques, Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom and Macy’s stores, and also online

Time to pack. Running behind! Starting to panic!!

    There’s a couple of power songs that immediately lift my day: Footloose and St. Elmo’s Fire. Dunno what it is about them but when they’re on the radio my mood is immediately lifted and the gas pedal seems to get closer to the floor boards (no clue as to how that happens ;D).

  5. Danielle says:

    This is really pretty, but I’m not sure if I like how subtle it is. I tend to go for more vibrant blushers.

    It’s definitely something better suited for paler people. The whole collection looks like it will suit those with fairer skin.

  9. Monica P says:

    Quite pretty in the pan, but looks a bit light for me as a medium skin tone.

    I have an impossible time getting blush to last on me. My face eats it, or it slides off, or I don’t know. My skin type is… weird. My skin’s relatively normal (dry in winter) but I have a heart/nervous system condition that makes me sweat excessively, so a lot slides off of me.
