MAC Semi Precious Collection: Mineralize Skinfinishes

MAC launched their new Semi Precious collection this week, making it this year's mineralize product launch. Every summer, MAC seems to launch a mineralize collection, and this year's included eyeshadows, blushes, brushes, and mineralize skinfinishes (among other things). I'm a huge MSF junkie, so whenever some limited ones are released I usually get sucked in. This collection was no exception.


There were four MSF's in this collection total, and I purchased three of them. These are unique because they have consist of two colors: an outer ring and a gemstone looking design in the middle. This is nice because you get three shades in each MSF (outer, inner, mixed).


Semi Precious Rose Quartz is a warm pink outer ring with a golden center.

Semi Precious Crystal Pink is an icy pink outer ring with a bronzy pink center. I felt like this one looked way better on my skin than I could ever imagine it being in the pan. If you go by this one, swatch it. You might be surprised!

Semi Precious Goldstone is a bronzy outer ring with a golden-peach inner ring. I was surprised at how much I liked this one on my skin, considering I usually stay far away from any kind of frosty bronze.

For everything else I got on my trip to the MAC counter, watch the haul here!

Did you get anything from the Semi Precious Collection?

  9. Rose Quartz is so pretty!Since MAC is more expensive here,I think Essence's Colourmania blush is a great dupe for it,if you're wondering getting a cheaper alternaive.I previously mentioned that on my blog.
    The lipstick is gorgeous,I love wearing rosy colours on my lips.
