MAC Semi Precious Collection

MAC just put out the Semi Precious Collection and it’s broken down into three overall collections – Semi Precious Colour (lippies, blush, skinfinish), Semi Precious Skin (foundation, a charged water and a face+body lotion) and Semi Precious Eyes (shadows and mascara). Why they are breaking it down like this? No idea but it’s quite confusing I think. Anyway, I’ve decided I’m just not down with these Mineralize Eyeshadows or Mineralize Blushes. They look so amazing in the packaging and perfect for my Product as Art feature but what it looks like in the packaging and what it swatches as is just too different and it disappoints me. What would be cool with these is if I could somehow pick up the design in the pan and apply that to the lid like these. What a great effect that would be! All @!

MAC-Semi-Precious-Collection So let’s look at what I did like about the collection, and that would be the lippies in the Semi Precious Colour! Quite a few keepers. The Lustre Lipstick in Gem of Roses (midtone strawberry pink) and One of a Kind (midtone rosy neutral), and the Cremesheen Glass in Natural Flare (light caramel nude) and Geo Pink (strawberry pink ).

I also really liked the Mineralized Skinfinish in Semi Precious Pearl from the same collection. The outside is a beige champagne and the inner color is a combination of white, plum and bronzer, which is nice for contouring or a little blush. A nice two-in-one product!
