MAC Semi-Precious Pearl Mineralize Skinfinish

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.

The center portion is a bit like MAC Honey Rose, just a little hint of gold instead of pink. It has more red in it than Guerlain Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder.  I think the versatility of this particular shade will make it easier to dupe yet harder for me to give you possible dupes, because it really depends on just how heavy you go with the outer ring of color, since it’s so light, it can greatly alter the shade.

I see Semi-Precious Pearl working well as a highlighter, and I think this is a shade many are going to gravitate towards. It's easy to wear, should flatter many skin tones, and has that glowy sheen many look for in a mineralize skinfinish.

    PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one who looked at this and immediately thought it looked like a wart or a tumor or something on human skin… I’m a nurse, though, so make of that what you will :P

    Hi, Christine! Do you think this one is comparable to Shell Pearl from Liberty of London? I’ve been looking for SP’s dupe for long.

    Thank you!
