Mac Stereo Rose

I was lucky enough to get hold of this as its very much a cult mac product and its rather difficult to get hold off, which in turn only seems to increase its popularity. And now I’ve got my hands on it I finally understand why its so talked about! It isn’t however going to be for everyone
It’s a beautiful shimmery deep coral with pretty golden highlights and a slightly rosy undertone. And although I love wearing it it’s not something I’ll reach for every day, and I know a lot of people will be put off by how shimmery it is as I know a fair few of you prefer to add your own highlight.
Aside from the shimmeriness, which is kind of expected with a mac msf, they are pricey, particularly this one as its only repromoted every so often and consequently prices in CCOs rocket, and its also not the easiest to work with as it is very pigmented so you have to be careful to not apply too much. And it's not going to be a universally flattering shade as it is quite coral/red which can something look too much on some skin tones (this looks terrible on my tanned skin however when I'm pale it's beautiful).

I do love it though, not sure I’ll repurchase but I don’t think that’s something I need to worry about as MSFs last years!
Have any of you managed to get your hand on this?
What did you think?

Hope this has been helpful!! x

So pretty....*looks forlornly at your swatches* :( I could've purchased this in Malaysia last year but didn't, thinking it wasn't that special. I went back the next day and it was gone. *sigh*

@Silhouette Screams I'm so glad I picked it up when I had the chance, mac will probably repromote it next year, you'll just have to be quick!

@Gaby & Jenny It really is gorgeous, and although mac is quite pricey MSFs really do last for ages so for I always think they're worth it :)

Thanks for commenting!! x
