Happy Friday my lovelies! I was about to say afternoon or something of that nature but realised it’s a totally different time in the UK – I really should stop saying that! Keeping in the theme of what I purchased at Duty Free this past week I couldn’t wait to show you all one of MAC’s most wanted products. It’s none other than the most beautiful Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish (MSF).
Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish £21.50 available from MAC HERE.
It’s most famous from a MAC summer collection in 2010 however MAC brought it back this year for those of us who were unable to snag it last time round. I always thought of this MSF as a bit of an overhyped product, usually because I could never swatch it or try it on (but boy was I wrong about that!). I tried it at my cousin’s house last week and did really, REALLY like it but wasn’t too sure if I wanted that bad? But as soon as I found out that the Duty Free MAC had it in stock I suddenly needed it in my life! At first I didn’t even want to use to because it was that pretty…
How pretty is it in the packaging?! It’s got subtle tones of bronze and gold but don’t show up drastically on the skin. I thought rather than going on and on about the product in a paragraph, I’d put it straight onto the picture. It’s straight to the point and visual – I love that (but do let me know if you prefer reading about it in chunks of text ).
It’s such a lovely pinky-coraly-blush colour that gives you a healthy glow when wearing it on your cheeks. It’s something that I thought would be best for summer and spring but I’m loving it during the dreaded winter months too!

I know it’s sold out on pretty much every online store but you may be able to grab yourself one if you look hard enough – my fingers are crossed for you all that are hunting one down. I get such a strange feeling when I see and wear it though… I feel like I’ve seen this colour before in my makeup collection. So, as soon as I get home I’m going to have a swatch-a-thon to see if I have something similar and if I do, expect a blog post on it
Were you lucky enough to get your hands on Stereo Rose this year? What do you think of it? Over-hyped or simply beautiful?
