MAC Gem of Roses Lipstick

MAC Semi-Precious Lipstick Swatches, Photos, Reviews

MAC Semi-Precious Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) includes four limited edition shades: Gem of Roses (mid-tone strawberry pink), Lush Amber (light nude beige), Musky Amethyst (deep plum), and One of a Kind (mid-tone rosy neutral).

MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste (to me).  Their lustre lipsticks are designed to be sheerer in color, so the color payoff of the three lustres in this launch is as expected.  Musky Amethyst, which has a frost finish, seems to be a little sheerer given its frost finish.  Lustres wear two to three hours on me, while frosts tend to be better at four.  In my experience, lustres are a little drying.

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #086

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

First, I’ll share mine!

Haul:  A bunch of products from Chanel’s fall collection

Weekend plans:  Hopefully catching up on many, many neglected things on my to-do list

Are you ready for fall makeup:  No, not at all; I really wish collections were a little more in step with actual seasons–sure, before it officially starts, but hey, summer just officially began.  I’d rather wait ’til August!

Keep adding your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

This week’s Mellan photo…


It’s bat dog!  I posted a few quick videos of Mellan on my Tumblr, too 🙂

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!
