MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose

So my MAC Mineralise Skinfinish in Stereo Rose finally turned up in the mail. I was so happy to finally get it, and really curious to see whether it was worth all the positive reviews and MAC website stalking.  Stereo Rose is all I ended up purchasing from the famed ‘In the Groove’ collection.  I think I’m at the stage in my makeup-collecting life where a product has to either be different to anything else I have, or really impress me with it’s quality before it will go on ‘the list’.  Stereo Rose fits that description.

As you can see by the pictures above, this is a coral-bronze blush, and I can imagine that this would be stunning on summer tanned skin.  However, when I started testing out Stereo Rose, and I kept reading all the gushing reviews about it, I found myself looking for a reason not to like it.  Surely it can’t actually live up to the hype?

Too orange?

Too frosty?

Doesn’t last?

Actually, none of the above.

This is a really beautiful blush. I don’t find that this leans too orange on my skin, the frost is just enough to make your skin look in great condition, and it lasts for about 4 – 5 hours (which is about standard for a MAC blush on me).  I think it is worth owning, because you will find yourself reaching for it more often than you think you will.  Even if you’re a ‘bronzer instead of blush’ girl, you will like it, as it gives a subtle bronze warmth to the skin:

This is also highly pigmented, so a light hand is needed in application.

I bought mine on Ebay, and it seems that Stereo Rose is still hovering around the $50 – 60 mark.  Jump in and get one while you can.

    It looks great on you but I think I’m safe from this purchase as I can’t seem to find it anywhere available to buy!
