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.

B
Shades like Gem of Roses and Lush Amber will suit warmer skin tones slightly more than cooler skin tones, but these are all on the sheerer side that they're quite workable across the range of skin tones. Musky Amethyst is very much a fall color.
