I'm sure you thought I'd fallen off the Earth by now. Nope, just had a baby and I've been a little preoccupied with the Prince of Poopie. So preoccupied that makeup has been the last thing on my mind, shocker! I'll post soon about his royal cuteness.
I did venture out of the house with the Duke of Barfington to check out MAC's Semi Precious collection when it launched. I ended up hauling Mineralize Skinfinishes in Semi Precious Crystal Pink and Rose Quartz and the 234 split fibre eye blending brush. I wasn't too keen on the mineralize eyeshadows or the skincare this time around. The $20 price tag per eyeshadow just made them not worth it since they had a bit of fallout.

I compared Semi Precious Crystal Pink to the Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight. The outer circle is very close in color but way more glittery. When blended together it looks like a slightly darker more glittery By Candlelight.

I also compared Semi Precious Rose Quartz to Stereo Rose and Petticoat. I found Rose Quartz to be much pinker than Stereo Rose. It's much more of a match to Petticoat but still ever so slightly pinker and tons of glitter again.

I'm liking the new 234 dual fibre blending brush. It's supposed to be for packing on the color with the goat hair and blending out with the synthetic fibers. It performed nicely at packing on the color, about what I expect with a MAC brush. However, it performed awesomely with blending. I think this might be my new go to brush over the 239 just because it's an all in one brush.
Did you end up hauling anything from this collection?
PS does anyone know how to fix my right sidebar? I remember Blogger acting all jacked up months ago when I posted and somehow it moved everything on me...
Disclosure: I bought everything pictured.
