My First Ever Mac Piece! - MAC Semi Precious Rose Quartz MSF

I have seen lots of MAC collections come and go and not felt an overwhelming urge to purchase anything...until now. The semi precious collection (out now) was the first that really, really caught my eye and I was itching to purchase something. Having looked at swatches on various sites of the range of products available in this collection I knew I had to buy the Rose Quartz MSF. So I placed an order with Debenhams along with an Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion and impatiently waited its arrival!

MAC Semi Precious Collection - Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish (MSF)

This is described by MAC as - A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin

I am delighted, this is so pretty!

I am in total love with this MSF, it is gorgeous, like nothing else I own. It is so soft and powdery making it easy to apply and blend. I love that I can use it in three ways. It has a wonderful high sheen to it and if you are looking for a highlighter this does the job nicely too. The outer pink is stunning in its own right, I adore it as a blush swirled together on my blusher brush and if I really want to highlight my cheeks I just use the centre bit on top of the cheek bones. Amazing.

For my first MAC item I am ecstatic, this is lovely to wear now but it will also take my right through Autumn and Winter. This is definitely a makeup staple that I will use again and again.

And finally a photo of me wearing it, I think it is stunning.

MAC Semi Precious Rose Quartz Mineralize Skinfinish costs £20.50


  1. It looks lovely on you and the sheen is amazing.

    I have to say nothing from this collection stood out to me, maybe I didn't give it enough credit?

  2. Oh so pretty I have to get something like this from MAC

  3. I was the same with this collection, a couple of things were just calling out to me! This MSF looks really pretty x

  4. ooh, I had looked at this on the website but didnt really think that much of it, however having seen it on you I think I might give it a go. i had a MSF before, years ago but had to throw it away as the colour seemed to disappear from it, but then it was a few years old by this point. shame on me!!
