mac semi precious goodies!!

so as i'm sure you all know... mac's latest collection is called semi-precious and consists of a boat load of mineralized products. after careful consideration i chose two goodies and i'm very impressed with my selections!!

first up i got the mineralized blush in pressed amber. i was intrigued by the simple brown color and thought it would make a wonderful light wash on the cheeks for those "natural" days... or a nice contour. and yes i was right!! it is the most AMAZING contour color!!!! beware though... this is so soft and pigmented! a light hand is a necessity.

a closer look... isn't the marbelized look divine?!

now for the swatches!

i LOVE that it is not overly warm on my skin!!

i also HAD to pick up a mineralized skin finish to add to my collection. i had heard that semi precious crystal pink was very similar to by candlelight (from warm and cozy) which i missed out on... so, naturally i went straight for it at the counter.

a closer look... i was a bit put off by the center part as it looks kind of odd, but once i swatched it i forgot all about that. hello gorgeousness!!

the swatches... loveliest highlight ever! a light pink/peach frost with minimal glitter and just the right amount of sheen. the center works well as a blush on it's own. LOVE!

what have you picked up from the collection?


  1. i can't really blame you! it was a bit overwhelming... the e/s were pretty, but none that i'm really in the market for. love the blushes though... may go back for feeling flush. gorgeous pink!

  2. I didnt purchase anything. the items all looked so stunning in the pot, but on my skin, i just wasnt happy. but they look surprisingly great on your skin swatched.


  3. Hi! I just stumbled on your blog and thought it was so great I had to follow! Love these colours
