Spotlight | Human Heart Nature Perfect Glow Mineral Blush in Sun-kissed.

Despite the sudden, heavy rainfall last Saturday, I somehow managed to attend the afternoon schedule of the Magalogue Turnover at Human Heart Nature Laguna's Concept Store.

I wouldn't miss this event for the world. I promised the ladies of Human Heart Nature Laguna to be there at the launching, plus I knew beforehand that there will be new blushes hitting the shelves that day. And you know how much of a makeup junkie I am. Gotta get first dibs on new makeup, baby! :)
Sun-kissed on the left, Pink Bloom on the right.
Whilst at the Concept Store, I had the chance to swatch both shades of the all-new Perfect Glow Mineral Blush. There's Pink Bloom, a cool-toned pink reminiscent of Rosy Cheeks from the old Mineral Blush line. And then there's Sun-kissed, a warm-toned coral that bears resemblance to another old shade, Tropical Rose. Remembering that I have way too much pink blushes already, I chose to bring home the latter - something that's not pink for a change.
Perfect Glow Mineral Blush in Sun-kissed.
Like its predecessor, the Perfect Glow Mineral Blush is a blend of natural Vitamin E and pure mineral pigments and contains absolutely no harmful chemicals. No chemical preservatives, no parabens, no mineral oil - none of these toxic substances. 'Only the good', as the Human Heart Nature label would say.
Only the good!
The most distinct difference between this blush and the old Mineral Blush is in the packaging. The Perfect Glow Mineral Blush has a bigger size at 4.3 grams (the old Mineral Blush was 3.5g), and it now comes in a sleek purple compact, complete with a mirror and a 'natural' brush.
Purple, which I love.
Although the brush can pack a lot of color, I find it a bit too small and too flimsy to hold. And so I ended up using my own kabuki brush instead.
'Natural' brush.
Now when it comes to color payoff, the Perfect Glow Mineral Blush has the upper-hand against its predecessor. This new blush has better pigmentation, and wears longer (around six to eight hours) than the old Mineral Blush.
Swatching Sun-kissed!
It has a buildable formulation and a semi-matte finish that doesn't make your face look too made up. And true to its name, Sun-kissed gives your cheeks a nice healthy, glow - like you've been out bathing in the sun.
Sun-kissed cheeks! :)
What I love:
- Pretty packaging
- Now comes with a mirror
- Buildable color
- Great color pay-off
- Semi-matte finish
- Wears longer than the old Mineral Blush 
- Gives your face a natural, healthy glow
- Contains no harmful chemicals
- Not tested on animals
- Affordable price (Php 275 only!)

What you might not like:
- The brush is a bit flimsy, but it does pack a lot of color.

The shade is really nice on you, I like it because you mentioned it stays on longer and has a semi-matte finish. But I don't own one so maybe I'll wait for your giveaway then! lol!

so love the shade of that blush! I love orangey blush I am actually using the same shade but more darker. Pink doesnt seem to look on my morena skin tone.

Rowena Wendy Lei said...

I'm not a blush person but that looks very nice and natural, esp on bare skin.

Sam Lanuza said...

I should have come with you. LOL Where is SPC? Laguna resident but not familiar with the surroundings. haha

I love the color it looks natural. As always the brush included is flimsy.

Janna Joshelle P. said...

I really like that blush shade you took home! Must stop by our Human Nature outlet to get it too!

Michelle said...

I have always loved coral - toned blushes because they warm up my skin more than the pinky ones. :) Having said that, I also love sporting orange and coral lip colors to go with the blush :) I have only tried HN's eyeshadow palette and thought it was all right. This new blush seems better in terms of over-all pigmentation.

Kai Grafia said...

Nice color sis! I actually love that shade :)) Need to grab one soon!

Aya said...
