Anywho, here's what I hauled:
I got the Mineralize Skinfinish in Semi Precious Crystal Pink, Lipstick in Musky Amethyst and Mineralize Eyeshadow in Smoked Ruby.
The left is the outer ring, the middle is the middle part and the right is both mixed.
I'm not normally a fan of Mineralize Skinfinishes. I've had 3 during my love affair with Mac and I've ended up passing all of them onto a more loving owner. They usually just show glittery on me with no color payoff. This one is a bit different. It was $28, and I really struggled with the price initially until I tested it in store. The outer ring is a pinky champagne which I would use as a highlighter. The middle and outside, when mixed, turn into a lovely pinky peach with a bit of bronze (darker than it shows in the picture), that I can use as a blush. The middle is a bronzey brown (a cooler one, which is strange) that I think I can use as a contour or bronzer. So $28 for 3 products isn't THAT bad and the color of the blush is quite unique in my collection. I tried on Rose Quartz and while it was pretty, I felt that it was a bit stereotypical in terms of what I already have in my collection. The other 2 in the collection were pretty, but quite warm toned which didn't suit me.
Oh man, how GORGEOUS is this eyeshadow? I saw swatches before the collection released and had a feeling that I'd love it. The left is a dry swatch and while it's pretty, it doesn't compare to the wet swatch in the middle. I normally don't bother using eyeshadows wet, but this one is so worth it. I'm dreaming of a blackened red smokey eye now! (This was $19.50... a bit ouch)
Ahhh yes, Musky Amethyst. I love you and hate your finish. This is a frost and Mac's frost lipsticks are the bane of my existence. HOWEVER, this isn't frosty, thank goodness. It performs more like a lustre or a cremesheen, probably more like a cremesheen. There's flecks of ruby red suspended in a plummy base... so gorgeous. It's a bit sheered on the lips than I would like, but I feel like it's perfect for a slightly vampy fall lippie. Would be great for someone wanting to get into darker lipsticks but a bit intimidated by them! (This was $14.50)
Overall, I'm pleased with what I got. I haven't had much chance to play with my goodies yet, but I'm sure I'll post some FOTDs once I start using everything!
How about you, what did you haul from Semi Precious? Did you miss out on anything?
