MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish Swatches, Photos, Reviews

MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “rosy pink base with inner circle of silver, lime, white-pink, and copper.” As complex as that inner circle sounds, it’s more of a pink beige base with chunkier gold micro-glitter/large sparkle. The outer edge is a medium-dark strawberry pink with subtle yellow undertones. As a warmer skin tone, it’s always nice to see yellow-based pinks, because blue-based pinks tend to dominate cosmetics, particularly blushes.

When the two are mixed together, the color created is a softened pink with a champagne sheen with flecks of sparkle. Applied to cheeks, this ended up being the subtlest shade of the three I tried–it gave just a little pink flush with a shimmer-sheen of pale champagne. Β The texture is a little rougher than I’d like, mostly due to the center splotch having more of a glittery finish than a softer, finer shimmer. Β Of the three I tried, this seems to have a frostier finish overall, too. Β I would like to know why these are 0.22 oz. as compared to 0.35 oz. for previous mineralize skinfinishes.

The overall color was reminiscent of Rhapsody in Two–but much, much darker, which led me to Chic Couple, which has a similar color but doesn’t have the same shimmer-sheen, so it ends up looking darker. It’s a lighter, less red-based Petticoat.

Beautiful! Will definitely be getting this in the collection! Thanks Christine! I was seriously refreshing your website for this review lol.

ohhh. i have been wanting petticoat for ages, and have been waiting for a dupe to be released. im sure petticoat will be repromoted eventually. do u think i should get this and settle for the lighter color, or should i wait until it eventually repromotes?

Honestly, you never know when MAC will repromote something. It could be in a few months or a few years. You might be able to find one up for swap on MakeupAlley, though – so maybe go that route?

ok thanks!! everyone ive asked basically said that itll get repromoted eventually, but i honestly didnt really know. lol, whenever i dont know something i ask you πŸ™‚ i never thought of makeupalley, i dont really know why, lol πŸ™‚ if i cant ifnd one, ill prob just pick this up. thanks!! πŸ™‚

TBH, I’m not sure why people are confident it will be repromoted – MAC has tons of very, very popular items that never get repromoted. I’m not saying there’s no chance, I just don’t know why some are so confident it will be! πŸ™‚ Maybe I’m just a cynic when it comes to MAC.

Oh my gosh, which CCO did you go to?! I’ve been looking for petticoat everywhere, but the prices on ebay are insane and I don’t even know if its the real deal :/ the lowest price I found for it was 20 shipped but it was used. πŸ™

aw, youre so lucky!
i live by only one CCO and they hardly have any mac items 😐
and i really want pettcoat, ive read so many great reviews on it
but never tried it so not willing to go on ebay and pay $40 for it :\

christine, i was wondering what camera lens you own? ur self portrait shots r gorgeous. i have a dslr n i want something that more forgiving like that. pls help or suggest..
