MAC Honey Jasmine Blush

Wearing the new $21 MAC Honey Jasmine Blush from the All About Orange Collection

Got a new tea tonight from Trader Joe’s. Honey Jasmine. I’m really looking forward to having a cup tonight.

Mmm… Honey Jasmine.



Kidding! It’s not a tea, or at least I don’t think so, although it does sound delish, doesn’t it?

It’s a new blush from MAC — a fresh squeezed coral cutie from the MAC All About Orange Collection, and it’s making me think of tea.

And Honey Boo Boo.

Yeah…I really need to stop watching reality TV (she says, while programming her Tivo to record Million Dollar Listing: New York).

Swear to gawd, I just did that. :)

MAC Honey Jasmine Powder Blush

Hello, Honey! — Honey Jasmine Powder Blush

Oh, and if you have a tan, babe, Honey Jasmine sure looks sweet on bronzed cheeks.

I picked up a little more color on my quick SoCal jaunt last week, and I’ve been wearing Honey Jasmine every day since.

And for comparison, Chanel Frivole

I gauged the wear time last weekend during a very important business meeting… Okay, it wasn’t a meeting. It was a Law & Order: SVU marathon. :)

When I peeled myself off the couch after four hours, I took a look in the mirror, and my blush seemed a touch darker than it did earlier in the day. In my mind, I heard the SVU “Dun-DUUN!!” and wondered if Benson or Stabler would be able to solve this mystery…

Probably. They’re talented like that.

I tried again yesterday and noticed the same thing. If powder products tend to oxidize on your skin, it might be something to keep in mind.

My poor pan of Chanel Frivole is also mighty miffed about having to share counter space next to Honey Jasmine.

The two colors are similar — both of them, sun-soaked with a satin finish that says, “You would have loved the spa, daaaaahling!

I’m not one to gossip, but I think Frivole’s a little jealous of Honey biting her style.

I’m just sayin’. :)

Karen

    Oh, jeez. DAT. COLOR.

    I’ve gotta say, I picked up Ripe for Love from the last collection and I find myself lemming Honey Jasmine as well (gasp, picking up two coral-y colors in a month?!?!)

    I wonder how this compares to Modern Mandarin from last year’s Tres Cheek collection! I need a good enough excuse to NOT get this, LOL.

      Hi Prerna,

      Oh, I LOVE Ripe for Love. Isn’t Temperature Rising gorgeous? Did you get the chance to play with anything else from the collection?

  3. LOL ok I was about to say “this HAS to be mine” but then I saw the comparison swatch of Frivole and decided it was close enough that I definitely didn’t need both. Thanks for posting that otherwise I would’ve purchased it for sure! It really is pretty though! I love my Frivole and have been reaching for it more and more as the weather gets warmer! :D

    I’m excited, I just ordered one for myself, too!

  11. Miriam says:

    I am a c6 in Mac studio fix function I have ripe for love could these two be the same ??? And I do tend to oxidize things . What would you suggest c 6 is way darker than nc40 but much lighter than nc42

  12. Julie says:

    I just bough this blush and I am in love! What lipsticks did you love from this collection?

  13. MONICA says:

    thanks for the review how does this compare to mandarine orange from the tes cheek bc I already have that one??

  14. MONICA says:

    oops I meant modern mandarin….how does this compare to that??lol

  15. Mary says:

    Karen what brush do you recommend to apply this blush? I used the nars yachiyo brush n that didn’t work. Blush did not even show over my nc 45 foundation. Came to conclusion that brush is better suited for very pigmented blushes Iike nars Taj Mahal. I fell in love with honey jasmine when I saw swatches online. However it’s barely showing up on my skintone when I swatched it :(

    • Karen says:

      Hi Mary,

      I just use a regular blush brush. I pack it on there, work the powder into the bristles by pushing the brush head into my palm, and then I apply it on my cheeks. Have you tried layering it? You may need to do 2-4 layers to get it to really pop.
