Last week I did a bit of make-up shopping and I went past MAC to check out the
It was quite disappointing I have to say and I only picked up a few items.
Please remember that you can click on any image to enlarge.
I'm not massively in love as I was with previously released MSFs.
The centre of this one is so pretty to look at but when you swatch it it's actually a disaster.
It's FULL of glitter. The actual pink/rose part is quite pretty.
I don't think I will be swirling my brush here. It will be more the case of carefully selecting the outer part.
The glitter on the other MSFs was even worse!
Brilliant idea but very badly executed in my opinion.
I knew I wanted this one.
It can be used as a blush or as a bronzer too.
Really not suitable for contouring.
It's a bit on the red side.
I love the look of it and the soft finish and texture.
If you know me you know that I love orange/coral blushes.
This one was my number one item on the list!
It's definitely more orange than coral I would say.
This one is a bit of a tricky colour and might not show up on darker ladies.
Better swatch it before buying it I would say.
I'm a happy bunny with this one ;)
This was the very disappointing side of the entire collection for me.
They ALL look incredible on the pan but they not that good when swatched.
The ones that have very interesting colour combinations when swatched they all look a bit grey/blue in different shades. I had a big list of "possibles" but I only picked up one.
Lovely green, blue, grey, yellow veins but when swirled you get a nice deep blue/grey with sparkles.
From the Fashion Flower Collection I picked up one eyeshadow.
I love! Seriously love this one!
It's my favourite finish- Veluxe pearl and and it feels and applies like butter.
I like the embossing but it's a shame that it will rubb off when I start using it.
As I didn't spend as much money as I thought I would on e/ss of the Semi Precious Collection I decided I would try the Mineralize Satinfinish foundation.
Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation
It's quite liquidy but it feels nice and light.
I also noticed that as soon as you start rubbing the colour changes/oxidizes a bit.
Mine turned a bit more red.
The finish is very natural and very flattering for a Summer day or evening out.
MSF Semi Precious Rose Quartz
Do you see the chunky glitter?
I love glitter but not on my face.
Pressed Amber and Warmth of Coral
(Excuse the typo on the photo!! ANNOYING AGHHH! ↓)
See what I mean?
Where's the green and the yellow from the gorgeous veins on the pan?
No where...it's a grey blob.
Lovely but still a grey blob.
All in all these collections were a disappointment and I doubt that any product will sell out.
I think my advice would be go and see it first!
I wouldn't suggest buying anything online because things swatch so different from what you see on the pan. Very misleading.
I know that I will enjoy my buys and I will be rocking some Semi Precious face :)
I hope this was helpful for someone.
Did this collection disappoint you too?
