M.A.C’s new Semi-Precious collection will ensure you dazzle this summer
Earthy hues, mineral infused pigments and four finely-milled gems; M.A.C’s Semi-Precious collection has hit the counters and smacks of understated elegance with an earthly edge.
For a revitalising start to your Semi-Precious palette, spritz your face with the Mineralize Charged Water (£14.50), offering freshness in one single spray. Prep your canvas with a generous helping of the Mineralize Face and Body Lotion (£21.50) and get underway, making use of the limited-life split fibre application brushes (£15 – £32.50) for optimum results.
The Mineralize eyeshadows (£16) lie at the heart of the makeup range, boasting the highly pigmented and captivating colour bases of the four gem types concerned: bronzite, black tourmaline, gold pyrite and lilac lepidolite. For girls who desire darkness, an intense pair of eyes can be sought in the powerful effects of Golden Gaze (gold and black), Dark Indulgence (forest green and black) and Smoked Ruby (burgundy and black), while those wishing for modest glamour should look no further than the discreet, yet to-die-for, pigments of Mineral Mode (white base with copper and grey) and Unsurpassable (green, teal, purple and copper). Frame eyes with a set of lashes laden with coats of Zoom Fast Black Lash mascara in Deepest Black (£13.50).
From Lush Amber (light nude beige) to Musky Amethyst (deep plum), the range’s four lipsticks (£13.50) offer you a pout that is both subtle and smouldering. If you so wish, complementing lipglosses will tone down the harsh matte effect of the lip colour; the Cremesheen Glasses are available in corresponding colours to the lipsticks, including Natural Flare (light caramel nude), Geo Pink (strawberry pink) and Richly Revered (deep brown plum).
Glowing, illuminated skin can be achieved with the Mineralize Satinfinish foundation (£22.50), available in numerous shades to suit your skintone. Loaded with SPF 15 you can be rest assured that your face will be protected from the summer weather. Sweep the face with a flash of Mineralize Skinfinish (£20.50), baked with a base and inner circle to provide a melange of hues, and charge cheeks with a hint of Mineralize Blush (£18) – I rate Warmth of Coral (coral and peach).
Whether you’re indulging in a whole new make-up bag or replacing your old cosmetics this season, be sure to get in touch with Mother Nature this summer and embrace the joys of the earth with M.A.C’s Semi Precious.
