MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Semi Precious collection

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish semi precious collection has been very popular here in the US and sometime I just don't get the hype. When I decided that I wanted to get some of their blushers, my local MAC has sold out most of the colors, and I have to get 2 of them from the MAC counters in Nordstrom (well one of the Nordstrom is already out of all colors)... yes why the hype?

MAC's description of this collection of MSF:

A luxurious velvet-soft powder with a high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks for an overall ultra-deluxe polish.
  • By M·A·C.

I picked out 3 colors from the collection: Rose Quartz, Pearl, and Crystal Pink (Swatches from L to R):

indoor lighting

under sunlight

 Rose Quartz is a lovely rose colored blush that in my opinion looks very alike with Chanel's blusher, but the center "nipple" makes this blush a lot shimmery than Chanel's... I think Rose Quartz is not the most pigmented, but this is exactly why I like this semi translucent natural glow on my cheeks.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish semi precious in Pearl:

I think Pearl is one of the most popular colors as it is the first colors to be sold out on MAC's store and website. Pearl to me is not a blusher but more like a bronzer kind of color that give my face a nice natural glow... a good departure from the usual red/rosy toned blushers...

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish semi precious in Crystal Pink:

I like this the most out of the 3 MAC MSF I got this time. Its color is the blend between a subtle bronzer and a warm toned blushers, not too sheer but a nice subtle glow that work very well with my skintone. I picture myself using this the most for everyday look, rather than Rose Quartz which is a bit more dramatic for everyday look...

My blogger pal Elaine has also blogged about Rose Quartz and Crystal Pink in her blog here, please go to her blog and check out her reviews!
