MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish Swatches, Photos, Review

MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “rosy pink base with inner circle of silver, lime, white-pink, and copper.” As complex as that inner circle sounds, it’s more of a pink beige base with chunkier gold micro-glitter/large sparkle. The outer edge is a medium-dark strawberry pink with subtle yellow undertones. As a warmer skin tone, it’s always nice to see yellow-based pinks, because blue-based pinks tend to dominate cosmetics, particularly blushes.

MAC Semi-Precious Pearl Mineralize Skinfinish Swatches, Photos, Reviews

MAC Semi-Precious Pearl Mineralize Skinfinish ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “beige champagne base with inner circle of white, plum, and bronze.” The center splotch is an russet bronze with heavy shimmer and slightly frosty finish. The outer ring is a pearly, white gold that’s a little sheer as it is mostly shimmer and sheen as opposed to color. Together, they swirl and create an ambery bronze with a white gold sheen. It adds a little warmth with a high sheen on my cheeks; there is some color, but it is light. With an even lighter hand, I could see this working well as a highlighter or just-barely-there glowy sheen.  I would like to know why these are 0.22 oz. as compared to 0.35 oz. for previous mineralize skinfinishes.

MAC Feeling Flush Mineralize Blush Swatches, Photos, Reviews

MAC Feeling Flush Mineralize Blush ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “melange of pink, deep blue-pink, and soft brown.” It swirls together and creates a plum-tinged pink with blue undertones and a satin sheen. The mineralize blushes from this collection have a very different texture than past mineralize blushes. These have the texture of the In the Groove mineralize eyeshadow trios–very silky smooth, soft, and really no frost or grittiness.  The overall feel is reminiscent of Chanel’s Joue Contrastes (not quite as silky).  These feel even softer and have less of a sheen the the less frosted side of the In the Groove mineralize blush duos.

MAC Semi-Precious Sneak Peek Swatches

It will be quite awhile before I can get through all of the photos and write-up reviews, so in the meanwhile, here are some group photos and swatches. The majority of reviews will not be posted until tomorrow, sorry!  If it’s not pictured/swatched here, I do NOT have it at this time.  Anything that is missing I will certainly buy as soon as I’m able to, but I cannot swatch what I don’t have, so my apologies in advance!!

I think all the swatches have been corrected – I always swatch in alphabetical order but something happened and they were all OUT of order!

See more photos & swatches! Continue reading “MAC Semi-Precious Sneak Peek Swatches”
