Over the last few months I have found myself jumping on quite a few bandwagons and although I'm usually pleased in making that decision, this time I have been left a little disappointed.
MAC Stereo Rose is a Mineralize Skin Finish and is a product that I can remember being raved about a few years ago when it was first released into a MAC collection. Ever since, I have browsed many a blog sale to find it and although I eventually talked myself out of needing it, when it was re-released into the Aprés Chic Collection my lust for it was back and although I managed to hold off buying it for a few weeks, I did eventually cave in.
If you're unfamiliar with this seriously raved about product, it's a beautiful looking Coral powder with flecks of Pink and Gold running throughout. To look at, it really is lovely and even swatched I found it super appealing, but on my skin, I just wasn't blown away. It can be worn as both blush and highlight but used in both ways, I didn't find it to be very complimentary for me. I had to go really gentle with it, in fear of looking like a shimmered up Noddy, and then with going so gentle I didn't really get it. If you read my blog regularly, then you will be aware that I absolutely love anything Coral, but unfortunately I think the frosting shimmer of Stereo Rose just didn't do it for me and I think that maybe without the hints of Pink and maybe even less Gold running throughout, it could have been a dream.
Stereo Rose sold out extremely fast online (I'm told minutes!), but I have seen it restocked in quite a few counters recently, so if you fancy picking up one of these extremely lusted after MSF powders, they cost £21.50 and are available as a part of the limited edition Aprés Chic Collection at MAC Counters.
Have you tried Stereo Rose? I would love to know how you got on.
