MAC Semi Precious in Singapore

We can all admire a girl with a 30 – carat diamond. But the NEW dazzle is SEMI PRECIOUS. Gems that are rare in spirit, rich in substance and worn fluidly, on the skin.

In M·A·C SEMI PRECIOUS, four finely milled gems- bronzite, black tourmaline, gold pyrite and lilac lepidolite bring their own earthly and spiritual affluence to three key elements of the mineralize collection: Eye Shadows, Skinfinish and Blush.

Setting them off: a collection of colour, two mineralize skincare formulas and four NEW LIMITED-LIFE split fibre brushes. Like everything this precious, these elements start off rare and tend to get rarer… get rich while you can!


Available in July 2011 at all MAC locations across the island, the photos of this mega MAC collection speak for themselves. One thing’s for sure – it’s lemmings-galore for me; I especially want the MESes and the brushes!

    I want those e/s, blush, MSFs & brushes! I esp want 128 & 234 brushes & the pink & coral blush & all the e/s!!!

  • AT says:

    I’m eyeing 234. Are they LE? Also, would you know if there are 2 each of the same brushes (one black and the other grey/white) or is the right brush the reverse of the same brush? Thank you!

    • makeupmag says:

      Hi AT,

      I believe they’re limited edition. I haven’t seen them in person yet but I’m fairly certain they’re two-sided – they’re called split fibre brushes, after all. :)

  • nia says:

    woah! interesting brushes!

  • Mei says:

    The brushes look really good! :) something unique to! can’t wait to get them.

  • Sam says:

    Wow! I love Mineralize Skin Finishes and blushes – will have to start saving.

  • Mei says:

    Hi Mag! For me I’m looking forward to the cheek brush and buffer brush. Haven’t gotten MAC face brushes recently so it’s a good time to get some :D

  • tiffany says:

    Wow!! The nude lip gloss looks really promising!! Wonder if its moisturizing. Which eye shadow are you eyeing Mag?

    • makeupmag says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Definitely Dark Indulgence (but I wonder if the green would be as vibrant as that in the stock visual) and maybe Clarity! :)

  • nurul says:

    do u knw exactly when will they be released?

  • jy says:

    i went to see this collection after reading your tweets and my oh my… total damage: $160+!

    the eyeshadow colors are brilliant and how one pot alone can come out with so many different shades but it makes blending for both eyes a little tough unless i brush at the exact same spot as i did previously.

    my friends commented that the skinfinish natural in rose quartz (which i used as a blusher) is very pretty!

    • makeupmag says:

      Hi JY,

      Enjoy your wonderful haul; some of the colours are very pretty! It is true that the melange of hues makes it difficult to replicate the shades, though.

      Hi Riza,

      This is a limited edition collection and probably already sold out. Do check with the MAC counters, though; perhaps they might still have stock.
