MAC Stereo Rose 2012 Mineralize Skinfinish: Swatches & Review


MAC Stereo Rose 2012

Oh Stereo Rose how have many covet thee! During the 2010 re-release this puppy sold out in 10 minutes of the site launch. Yes I tried to get it that way at the time. It was first introduce in the 2005 MAC Goldplay July collection, I wasn't into MAC that year (was working to save for school ;) ) so I wasn't aware of the magic of Mineralize Skinfinish till 2007 where I started to pick up Petticoat (too glittery for me), Porcelain Pink, and By Candlelight through MAC and Ebay.

This Apres Chic re-promote is the first time seeing this product in person and working with it. Retails for $34 CAN or $29US (in 2005 retailed for $27 CAN and $23.50US), you best bet is to try smaller MAC stores as they will likely have it in-stock because again it sold out online the day or the release the 24th of December but stay on long enough to order it online.

MAC Stereo Rose 2012

Product & ColourStereo Rose is a war tone pink flush of shimmer. there is a fins veining of copper ribbon that adds the warmth to the pink base but it doe not override that pink tone like I experienced with Light Year.

It's also pigmented making a nice blush and I found a little goes a long giving your skin a bit of colour and highlight dewiness in the same go.

Wear: 8 Hour wear so far before noticeable fading during the holidays. ;)

Packaging: Same MAC packing, simple and sturdy.

Compare: Mush smoother then Petticoat was in finish as it's the close shade finish to Stereo Rose.

Daylight swatch: Stereo Rose heavy & buffed out
Daylight & Flash swatch: Stereo Rose heavy & buffed out

Flash swatch: Stereo Rose heavy & buffed out (look as the pink glow ;) )

Universally Flattering! I can see this working on deeper skin tone as well as my super pale skin.
