MAC Semi-Precious Collection
MAC Semi-Precious Collection

MAC Semi-Precious Collection for Summer 2011

U.S. Launch Date: July 7th, 2011
International Launch Date: July 2011

We can all admire a girl with a 30-carat diamond. But the new dazzle is Semi-Precious. Gems that are rare in spirit, rich in substance and worn fluidly, on the skin. In MAC Semi-Precious, four finely milled gems – bronzite, black tourmaline, gold pyriate, and lilac lepidolite – bring their own earthy an spiritual affluence to three key elements of the mineralize collection: eyeshadows, skinfinish, and blush. Setting them off: a collection of colour, two mineralize skincare formulas, and four new limited-life split fibre brushes. Like everything this precious, these elements start off rare, and tend to get rarer… get rich while you can!

  1. Anne

    My wallet is shivering in anticipation of a beating!

  2. Emily

    ahhh i’m so excited!

  3. Elizabeth

    Ooooh, “Gem of Roses” sounds BEAUTIFUL! That and “Geo Pink” are on my wish list. :)

  4. Natalie

    Oooh! I can’t wait! I love new brushes, and I collect MSFs. But I’m always down the shore on release day for these collections! Last year I got the very last Stereo Rose on the next morning after release. I think maybe this year I’ll have to detour to Atlantic City before my trip!

  5. Destiny

    This sounds amazing! Can’t wait to see pictures! Limited edition brushes?! YAAAY! :)

  6. Sounds enticing. And expensive, ha.

  7. Emily

    Holy crap… This is the launch that’ll officially make me empty my bank account. I think I just said “WANT” to 90% of the things listed. Never done that before. =/

  8. Troian

    Need to see the pictures!!!! This is the collection that will break the bank until the Fall/Winter collections come out. Oi vey!!!!!

  9. Julia

    Those Mineralize Eye Shadows look so gorgeous. They make my heart flutter. I want to get one or two of them for my first high-end makeup ever. ♥

  10. Mel

    I need the photos to be sure but I’ll be checking out Gem of Roses, One of a Kind, and Looks Like Sin.

  11. Moni

    Hope this is as goog as it sounds, ‘coz so far Quite cute was somewhat dissaponting

  12. cherise

    Can’t wait to see it.

  13. Celeste.M78

    Gorgeous collection. So glad it’s launched during my birthday month!

  14. Troian

    Any idea when we will start to see promotional photos of this collection? I saw a photo of the shadows & they look amazing. Hoping that the color payoff is great & that it’s not a let down. I need to see the lipsticks cause those are what is really interesting me right now.

  15. Tracy

    I cannot wait to see the brushes!I’ll probably get all of them. I expect some of the numbers will change since MAC produced a 128 brush and a 179 brush in the past..

  16. Nina

    I think I´m going to pre-order all the MSF´s but I´m not so sure aboute the eyeshadows. I do have to of the same “type” from earlier colletions but after blending it´s mostly shimmer left :S

    Regarding prizes – I recon I have to pay aboute $48 pr item ;(

  17. Kathy

    Looks like I need to start saving, because I’m not going to be satisfied with one or two pieces.

  18. claire

    OMG this is it. this is what i have been waiting for. MSF’s YES!!!! cant wait until you have pictures up of these. a lot of the recent collections have not appealed to me at all.

  19. Jensyn

    Awesome!!! This is the collection I’ve been waiting for. I’m skipping the rest until June/July. Semi Precious sounds beautiful. Any idea when we will start to see the promotional photos?? Also, Christine, any idea when we will start to hear about the late Summer, Autumn & Winter/Holiday collections that are expected to come out this year? I’m hearing great things about the upcoming shadows and lipsticks.

  20. oh lord im gunna be broke, ive just wrote a list of 6 items i want from the surf baby collection and now i see this lot ha ha. im going to have to get a second job.

  21. Leslie

    I can’t wait to see pictures!!!

  22. Sweetiepaper

    When will we see promo pics?????

  23. Leah Splawinski

    I LOVE Mineralize Skinfinish hope they are nice :) can’t wait for new ones :)

  24. Emily

    Hey Christine do you think any of the blushes or msf will look like stereo rose?

  25. ak

    The lipsticks and lipglasses sound pretty

  26. Domenica

    Christine, any idea when we will start to see the promotional pictures for this collection? It’s less than two months away & I am impatient since i want everything.

  27. Tiffani

    I feel an upcoming $100+ MAC order in my future…

  28. Chloe

    clarity and mineral mode are described as the same thing ! odd both white copper and gray

  29. Jesilyn

    Any idea when we will start to see promotional photos for this collection? Also, have you heard anything about the Cinematics Collection that is also suppose to be coming out on July 7th?
    Can’t wait until we find out the collections for the Fall/Winter, any idea when???

  30. Paddychat

    I saw some pictures on Princesse Beudy’s blog (French), and this collection looks really fantastic !!!!

    • its me!

      allglam also has some pics of what the brushes are supposed to look like…. if those r them im not too impressed :(

  31. Isobel

    want all but three of the eyeshadows, but will hopefully reduce the number when we get swatches :)

  32. Troian

    Christine, have you heard anything about a possible collection called Cinematics that is suppose to come out around the same time Semi Precious is?

  33. livzoe

    i’m very interested in the MSF’s!!!!..
    i wanna see pictures!!!

  34. amy

    one of the colors that looks gold looks alot like gilt by association to me. am i the only one who thinks this?

  35. emily

    christine I know you prob get asked this a million times a day
    but when will we see some pikz.
    I feel really let down by mac as I cant prepare properly :(

    • Most photos that you saw early were not authorized by MAC, past or present. They were leaked without approval. Information that is typically out, even without photos, is given against employee contracts. MAC typically releases information 2 weeks before their launch date.

  36. leesie

    Ohhhh, man, I think I’m going to have to get something from this collection. Looks like I’m now hopelessly doomed to “need” something from each MAC collection.

  37. wow the eyeshadows and blushes look so pretty!

  38. Maggie

    Weird brush concept – not what I pictured when I heard “split-fibre”. I wonder how they’ll do in application.

  39. Monica

    WANT the MSFs and the kabuki!

  40. Amanda Dubs

    After Surf Baby…I simply CANNOT buy anymore Mac. Seriously. But ohhh is this making it hurt.

  41. dee

    Definitely getting brushes.

  42. Abby Jones

    Love your websites <3 , not a big fan of this collection , MAC Has had better collection , I like the lip glosses and the foundation , might cheak them out , do you know were i could buy them ?? As always keep up the good work Abby Xx

  43. Sarah S.

    Whoa… $19.50 for one eye shadow? Swatches must definitely be seen first! I hope you’ll have this to review before it goes on sale? We have a similar skintone so I always rely on you before buying MAC collections!

  44. Ashley Marie

    Holy amazing! Will MAC be sending you these to review early? I think I’m in love with this collection.

  45. Kristie

    My jaw just dropped!!! Those mineralize products are beautiful!!

  46. cait

    ohhh gosh, this is the collection i have been waiting for!!!! i have such a soft spot for peaches and golds and warm pinks! o lord, i pray to be able to buy from this!!

  47. Sarah

    omg…. want most of the msfs, some mineralized blushes, maybe some mineralized eyeshadows, the brushes! etc! so much want!

  48. Madison

    Yay im so excited! cant wait!!

  49. AnGeLwInGz

    Pure Magnificence looks like it was made for me! I’m gonna have to break my lipgloss no-buy for that one.

  50. Sara

    def looking forward to seeing swatches of these! <3

  51. Areli Gonzalez

    the brushes are a no-go for me

  52. Traci

    Finally a collection I’m loving!!!!

  53. Luda

    This is a beautiful collection. Really stunning. Can’t wait.

  54. Katie

    I cannot wait to see the lipstick and cremesheen swatches! Looks Like Sin and One of a Kind are yelling my name!

  55. Tara s

    GASP! I know where I will be on July 7th! Wowie! I want those brushes!

  56. Alannah

    I don’t care about anything but Charged Waters! I’m buying a bunch–I loved that last time it came out and I only bought 2 so I’ve been missing it (or whatever the type was that came out last time)! :)

  57. OMG ive waited so long to see this, im from the UK and no one in the mac stores new anything about it! thankyou for keeping me up to date with all the new collections :D

  58. Lyza Rae

    This is so freaking exciting! Much more stoked on this than I was on Surf Baby, which I got nothing from.

  59. Nina

    A-MAZING!

  60. ellie

    oooh my heart was literally racing looking through those mineralize blushes and skinfinishes haha

  61. Chrissy

    Clarity and Goldez Glaze look AMAZING!! I am totally digging this line. I hate it’s all limited edition, my two least favorite words put together. :(

  62. Skye

    these colorful ones remind me of what you put under a carpet :P

  63. i neeeeed to see swatches of these

  64. heidi

    Looks like I’ll be foaming at the mouth come July in anticipation. Looks like a great collection!

  65. Luka

    The women looks so unrealistic, like Barbies

  66. Nicole danielle

    Shocked MAC would let us see the collection so early before the release. They like to keep us waiting in anticipation usually! Lol.

  67. Courtney

    this collection is going to kill me -_- i love it so much!

  68. Sarah

    It’s so hard to figure out what/if you want anything from new MAC collections when you have a TON. Alot of things are similar to collections from the past…but those blushes look cool!

  69. Wow that’s gorgeous. What are you most excited for?

  70. tiffany

    OMGGGG its like christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this collection looks perfect!!! ugghhhhh i’m gonna go broke with this one :(

  71. Laura

    Oh. Oh dear. I literally want everything. Eek!

  72. Erin

    Seriously MAC is killin me with collections.. I’m gonna put in my will to bury me with my mac makeup Along with coral lips and cheeks and maybe some zebra print on my toes

    • Maria

      A good friend of mine is taking out an insurance policy on her MAC brushes. Seriously. She seriously needs to insure her make-up collection. I’ve seen her spend over $1000 a month on make-up. She and her husband are what they call “DINKS” – dual income, no kids. He is a computer programmer, so she works just to support her spending habit.

      • MissJennyT

        Lol an insurance policy seems like a good idea!! I might look into it too haha.. But seeing as most of my collectio is limited edition.. No amount of insurance money could replace them if anything does happen.

  73. Em

    ohhh nooo my credit card is not gonna like this one :( very excited though!! found all the mac collections from this year pretty underwhelming so far, lets hope this one is as gorgeous as it looks!!!

  74. t_zwiggy

    I’ll be saving up for this! From the description and pictures this seems like my ultimate dream collection! I love mineralize blushes and MSFs, cremesheens are my favorite glosses, lustre is my favorite MAC lipstick finish, and the LE brushes seem amazing! If I can afford it I’ll be getting the entire collection!

  75. Definitely interested in the eye brushes and a few of the glosses! I’m not a big mineralize fan, since I veer away from too much glimmer, but I’m excited about these brushes! Is it just me or does the 234 brush look vaguely similar to the Sigma E45?

  76. to be honest it’s kind of boring, nothing really new.

  77. wow i love the brushes

  78. Lucy

    i love it, especially the lip products!

    • Maria

      Thank you so much! Now I know which lipstick to pre-order. I am also getting one each of the brushes, so I will probably have to go without on all the rest. :(

  79. UGGGGHHH! Everything looks so gorgeous in the pans. I guess it will all depend on seeing some good swatches, as who knows what they will look like once blended. I’ve seen a couple of swatches out and about, but they look sketchy. I can’t wait to see yours, Christine!

  80. Devi

    Ooh, that last MAC lipstick looks like the answer to my prayers! *_*

  81. pLebiitah

    Gotta get “Warmth Of Coral” It’s SO Pretty!

  82. Bianca

    I want everything! The lips on the girl in the first picture are to die for! I am going to be so so so broke. This is the most excited I have been over a collection in ages!

  83. The black and gold eyeshadow looks GORGEOUS.

  84. Mel

    the promo pic is very lady gaga.. :)

  85. Kat

    Love it! Love those eyeshadows.

  86. Neha

    Looks very interesting!

  87. katie

    I basically want everything. Good lord, this is the best one this year! At least there are’t paint pots, then I’d be really broke.

  88. katie

    And the forest green with black eyeshadow!!! I’ve been looking at Nars night porter, maybe this will be even better. And the black and red! Wonder if there will be any Milan dupes from the ones you just reviewed?

  89. Djohanna Solana

    I want it all!! I hate you MAC!!!

  90. I want all the brushes!!! I also like lush amber but I’m gonna wait your swatches^^

  91. ssnug

    I am excited about the brushes!!!!

  92. Meha

    oh wow, i’m already loving the lip gloss and some of the eyeshadows!!! so stoked <3

  93. I love this collection!!! Gorgeous

  94. Brie

    I might have to pick up a few (or all?) of the eyeshadows and take a peek at the lipsticks and blushes as well. I absolutely love that marbled effect in the eyeshadows (so much so that the only single shadows I own are all marbled baked ones)! I would love to buy more MSFs but…I’m picky about how a product looks both when applied and when in packaging, and to me, those poor things look like they have a rash/skin disease spreading through the middle of them!

  95. Erica

    So I don’t quite understand the concept behind the brushes…

  96. Amalee

    The blushes, eyeshadows, and brushes look very interesting. Can’t wait to check them out once they hit counter!

  97. Jenni

    i’m really interested in the new brushes!!

  98. Maureen

    I love those brushes! I don’t really like any of the other stuff, though. :/

  99. Djohanna Solana

    Im sooooo excited to see the swatches!! hope its as good as it looks!!
