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. Yajaira

    WOW. So much for saving money this summer… But, those colors look amazing!!

  2. I LOVE the Cremesheen glasses. The Mineralize Skinfinishes look worth trying. The pictures are a bit darker than I thought the collection colors may be but I may be wrong. Can’t wait for the collection. :)

  3. OMG I AM IN LOVEEEEEEE I CAN NOT WAIT 4 THIS COLLECTION WHEN WILL SWATCHES BE AVAILABLE?

  4. Cherokee

    I am interested in the makeup brushes. I will probably pass on the makeup.

  5. Caroline

    I thought I was “done” buying beauty products for a while until I saw this. I have been holding back for the release of Benefit’s Cha Cha but seeing this collection…I need to divert some funds so I can purchase some of these. Looking forward in seeing the reviews.

  6. Courtney

    I can’t wait to check out some of the brushes from this collection. Do have any idea why they did the split fibre? I’m also wondering of the 128 is the same as the 129 buy split fibre like is it the same shape and density ? I cant wait til you put up a video on this collection…if you do. Thanks for the update !

    • Avatar of Maria Maria

      The woman I go to at my local MAC counter said something about using one side for powders and the other side for creams/liquids. I just started my MAC brush collection in February, so I don’t have that many. One of my good friends has invested $1000s in hers, so she is looking into taking out an insurance policy on it. Seriously.

      • courtney

        lol thats funny but really when you spend that much money on something it justifiable :P and yeash i guess that makes sense about the cream and powder. now i just need to know if the 108 is really similar to the 109 like is worth getting if you have the 109 or can you skip hmmm

  7. Elisa

    oh wow. this collection is gorgeous! already getting my list together. i guess my “no-buy” will have to start the day after this launches.

  8. Holly

    Yes! I have been waiting for this collection since you posted that little teaser a while back! MSF’s are my weakness. Do you know if/when you will be getting samples to swatch? Thanks for all you do :)

  9. Dayna

    Im not sure how i feel about the msf’s yet. So far, 2 of the blushes and the 2 strawberry-colored lip products look good.

  10. ooooh i liiive for mac mineralized skin finishes! they’re so beautiful

  11. Andrea

    The blushes look interesting! Those will probably be the only things I purchase.

  12. Melissa C.

    Some of those mineralized shadows look I’ve seen before in the Rodarte collection.

  13. Rada

    It’s been a long time I didn’t get excited by a MAC collection! And the brushes! I want them!!

  14. Luz

    Can’t wait

  15. Resa

    Looks Like Sin’s a repromote. I rationed mine out until I found one in the A Very Stylish Girl look in a box. Must get a backup!

  16. Puffnstuff

    !!!!!!!

  17. Avatar of Diana queenfrostine

    I’m generally indifferent to MAC’s mineralized eyeshadows, but I’ve got my fingers crossed that Quartz Fushion (or at least i think that’s the one) is similar to Lovestone from ’07′s Flashtronic collection. I loved that one to bits, but I had that one smash on me and the remains have been too messy to bother with. I know it’s similar to Cranberry, but I liked Lovestone much better. It was less brassy and more pink.

  18. ohh new brushes!! WANT! I wonder how the foundation is; full, medium or sheer coverage?

  19. I WANT ALL OF IT!!!!

  20. Cristina PR

    I’m crazy in love with this collection! I hope that Christine can show us the swatches ASAP. :D

  21. Maribeth

    Can’t wait to see swatches of those eyeshadows. They look lovely! Bet we won’t have to wait too long.

  22. Mina

    i guess that’s the end of my no-buy :( i seriously want everything! but with the canadian dollars and my poor college student life, i’ll probably pick up two, or three at most. i did wish they made it cheaper for us canadians. the only thing i seriously hope for is that the mineralized products are NOT CHUNKY! that’s the only thing that will make me drop the item back. i’m so attracted to the cremesheen glasses, the msf’s, the charged water, and lipsticks :)

  23. dani

    Loves it x

  24. Kim-Mary

    Everything looks amazing. I want a few of the shadows, the brushes, the blushes and the lippies. I had hoped the lipsticks would be a little more, I don’t know the word, brighter I guess, they look very neutral compared to how thought. I still want all four though. Can’t wait for your swatches & recommendations Christine!

  25. OMG i’m in love….the brushes, the coral blush and the skinfinshes are all beautiful! Oh MAC why do you do this to me……… :( Hey Christine, thank you for all the hardwork that you do for all us beauty addict, seriously my words are not enough! :)

    P.S when will we see some swatches….:)

  26. Stephanie

    wow too the brushes and wow to eyshadows sooo pretty cnt wait for the swatches

  27. Chelle

    Sadly… I find this really disappointing. The colours in the pan are GORGEOUS, but there’s no way they’re going to look even remotely that good on the lids. I’ll wait to see your review and swatches, but I think this is going to seem too much like the Milani Baked Eyeshadows (ie, gorgeous in the pan, then when mixed it loses a lot of its flair).

    Still… they’re visually stunning, which will probably sucker a lot of us into buying some.

  28. Oh my God, I can’t stop looking at these.

  29. Dana

    this collection looks amazing! i have no idea what to buy though lol

  30. Anna

    Oh my!! Is it bad I want all the brushes? I love collecting brushes from MAC. Im in big trouble

  31. Mel

    The pink mineralize blush is gorgeous… I want it!!! :) Does anyone know how the new brushes will differ from the old one?

  32. Lena

    GAH, this is so going to break my bank!!

  33. Carina

    Looks promising… I hate to brag but… why must I be sooo pooooor UGH LOL I cant wait for the swatches

  34. Vanilla

    Can’t wait to see the swatches of some of these products, especially the eyeshadows! And those brushes… how unique! I’m afraid I might have to get them… but I wonder how they would differ from MAC’s current brushes when there are mixed fibers.

  35. A lot of the mineralized shadows look like the Milani ones! Can’t wait to see how they measure up :)

  36. amanda

    This collection is really beautiful. Hopefully christine can get and search the products before the realese. I know im proably going to get all the brushes. But really the promo pics look like a lazy job.

  37. Lince

    They really numbered the Angled Split Fibre Buffer Brush ’179′?
    Just like the old body buffer MAC 179 brush.

  38. Sophie

    I am totally amped for this line to come out! Everything I’m going to buy….

  39. cynthia

    holy crap were going bankrupt.

  40. Stacy

    theres a couple of swatches of two of the shadows here and the skin finish, Ive been looking at this collection forever I cant wait!!!

  41. Kasey

    Do these eyeshadows/other eyeshadows with a domed looking top fit into the palettes?

    • Maureen

      I think they’re bigger. They might fit into the blush palette, but idk if the lid would close.

  42. Brittany

    so far i im liking this collection, im definitely saving up for this collection til the 7th of July so no spending for a while. I have never really followed Mac until now (im still a new founder..i know sad) but i wont miss out on this. i was really bummed that missed out on the surf baby collection and the only thing i wanted was the blush. So now im determined to keep on track with this one =)

  43. Ella Bea

    charged water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ahem.

  44. sarah jane

    This is the first collection since VV that I’ve actually been excited about! I can’t wait! There is no store anywhere near me so I hope it doesn’t sell out too fast online.

  45. Pamela S

    HALLELU

  46. Maureen

    I guess I’m in the fortunate minority! I fell in love with Quite Cute (I bought TWO Sakura blushes with my quad and Miss Behave), and I really hated Surf Baby. Fashion Flower and Flighty were… whatever. The only thing I like about this collection is the split fiber brushes. Those look fabulous. Other than that… a complete pass from me. I’ll probably waste all my money with the collab project stuff though.

  47. virginia williams

    very pretty…

  48. Rene

    Why does MAC go so extreme- The total for what I want is $523.00- and of course this collection is a get it or forget it (aka sold out) not to mention the other ten + collections they throw out to us every year- They need to introduce collections fewer and farther between so people can get what they want without financing it. Heck… I probably just gave them an idea (mine better be interest free for life).

  49. The mineralize skinfinishes look gorgeous! Can’t wait to try.

  50. Olivia

    Beautiful pictures.

  51. Jaime

    So. many. colors.

  52. Carla

    I need to see swatches because I know that these look beautiful in the pan but the real colors still elude me. I do love the kabuki brush because it seems very different from what there is on the beauty market.

  53. Avatar of Marina Marina

    Christine, when will you be able to do swatches and reviews of this collection? SO EXCITED! The MSFs are gorgeous! And the Hint of Saphire e/s is as well…though I’m not sure how I’d wear it. Any suggestions?

  54. Grace

    Probably the most beautiful products I’ve ever seen from MAC… there goes a ton of paychecks! and these split brushes are very intriguing… not sure how I feel about them but I’m excited to see reviews and swatches!

    • Lark

      I’ve used split brushes. Wretched! I’m a painter with a studio practice and these are a disappointing gimmick. Goat on one side pony on the other? No snap! Buy separate goats and soft and you’ll be happier. The new 130 is the investment of the summer.

  55. indigo

    This collection is going to kill my wallet

  56. This collection is absolutely gorgeous! Omg I love just about everything! Just calculated all I wanted and it added up to $336.00. Time to put in some overtime lol!

  57. Cristina

    Cant wait!!!!!!!

    o.m.g
    dying here…. I have managed to save $250 for this collection, now im going to have a coronary because I see cinematics and bloggers is all round the same date argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. Avatar of Carly Carly

    I’m a sucker for eyeshadows especially ‘baked’-like products but in the end, I’m rarely blown away. (Although these ALL look unbelievably pretty.) Will definitely be looking into the Cremesheens. Over Indulgence Cremesheen is my MLBB gloss. The image and description of Looks Like Sin looks like it could be a winner. Thanks for this!

  60. Jasmine

    Ahh,this collection is amazing!i guess i’ll be working overtime to buy all products i want a still throw my daughters’s 1st bday party which is a safari jungle its gunna be expensive ergg!

  61. All the MSFs and Mineralize Blushes are so pretty! And I want most of the Mineralize eyeshadows too! There is one which look quite similar to Gilt By Association.

  62. everything was mineralized and nothing hurt

  63. Fiona

    This is out July 4th in New Zealand!

  64. I am sooo excited too see Youtube swatches of this collection! It looks amazing

  65. Avatar of Brie Brie

    I’m going to really, really try not to purchase more than 6 of the baked eyeshadows, though I’d love to collect them all! Chanel’s fall collection is coming out around the same time and I am *super* psyched for about half of it, so I’ll probably end up spending more money at the Chanel counter. Regardless, whichever sales ladies at both counters will be well-paid from the purchases I make!

  66. Naheeda

    Really like collection – quite so different from usually summer collection.
    Not sure about colour lip sticks.

  67. Sandy

    AMAZING!!! :D

  68. Erin

    I’m a bit confused. There will be two kinds of each brush (except 179)?

  69. Lark

    I have half of these. Fresh Green Mix, Gilt By Association… etc. I’ll not discuss the versions already done by other lines. The brush gimmick I’ve seen with paint brushes. Spend your money on regular proven brushes.
    I’ve got fabulous LE brushes- but shape is what makes them. Goat on one side pony on the other? Drive you nuts!
    Sorry but Not at all impressed. Why Fall colors in July?

    What’s the Nordies Collection? Seems like it is time for it.

  70. Vanessa

    The picture of the dark gloss (first pic) looks like some terrible heroin-chic trash

  71. Avatar of Corliss Corliss

    I’m always looking forward to new MSF’s

  72. Dana

    Have you gotten anymore info in this collection? It’s like two weeks away!

  73. Christelle

    Oh my god I absolutely adore this collection. This year I loved wonder woman and surf baby but this one is one of my faves too. I need more money… They don’t waste time between launches
    Do they ?

  74. Avatar of Guadalupe VJNS

    Hmmm….Harry Potter tickets or MAC???

  75. Amanda

    Can’t wait to see swatches!!

  76. Avatar of Guadalupe VJNS

    So does MAC realize that they’re hitting us with a price tag that’s close to a grand? They’re locos!!! And so am I because I’m going to try to buy them all.

  77. Ahhhhhh when will there be swatches the MSF’s look beautiful!

  78. Karla

    i will probably be picking up the warmth of coral blush the day it comes out

  79. Ahhhhh!!! probably buying everything in the collection! better start saving! lolz :)

  80. Ericka

    Have you reviewed the brushes?

  81. ani.a

    Christine! Isn’t this lotion in the permanent line? Or is that a different one? I’m so confused..

  82. Erin

    Will you be doing a video overview for youtube?

  83. Avatar of Emily emily

    everything is up on the regular mac website now! you just need to search for the items by name!!

    • Courtney

      Gem of Roses is already sold out online :( The one thing I 100% wanted from this collection.

      • SarahSJ

        That’s what I thought too but once I tried it on in the store I didn’t like it. I bought the Musky Amethyst and One of A Kind from this collection. They were really pretty in person.

  84. SarahSJ

    Just got back from the department store with my last MAC purchases from the Semi Precious line. I purchased the Mineralized Skin finish in Crystal Pink and Pearl, the Lipstick in Musky Amethyst and One of A Kind, Feeling Flush Blush, the 128 Brush and the new Charged Water. I love it all. Can’t wait to use it everyday. The items launched in the store today and stuff was running out fast. Get it while you can!!!
