M.A.C Apres Chic Collection Mineralize Skin Finish Stereo Rose Review

M.A.C has launched Apres Chic Collection recently and though they have not promoted it much like the Archie’s or Marilyn Monroe Collections ( God knows why), there are a few gems that are not to be missed. Sophie called me the day it was launched and said ” You saw Stereo Rose? Its Gorgeous“. Damn! Empty was my pocket so I just cried inside and forgot about it. One fine day, I was surprised to find one piece at the store when I went shopping for a friend and couldn’t help picking up this one ( it always happens with me so I’ve decided not to go shopping for friends too).

It is called Mineralize Skin Finish. It can be used as a blush, bronzer and a highlighter.
Price: Rs.1650. But look at the quantity. Wouldn’t it last a lifetime?

It is a baked blush hence it has the domed structure.

Baked blushes are generally supposed to be of very high quality. The texture is super- smooth and soft.

Packaging: It does not come with any mirror or brush. The packaging looks classy though.

Shade: Stereo Rose is a peachy bronze kind of shade with a hint of pink. It would suit all skin tones and would be perfect for bridal makeup. Look at the pan. Isn’t the shade oh so gorgeous?

It is highly pigmented and would last a long time even if used regularly. It can also be used over your regular blushes for a nice sheen. It does not have chunky glitter but just imparts a lovely sheen to the cheeks. It actually makes me glow.

The texture is extremely smooth. It is so easy to apply and blend. It stays put easily for more than 6 hours.


It has never irritated my skin ( highly sensitive). No pimples whatsoever with this on.

I have a few open pores but this did not emphasize them either. Totally love!

1. Huge quantity
2. Very good quality
3. Multi purpose product
4. Well pigmented
5. Great staying power
6. Non powdery
7. Very pretty shade

Cons: None

I am wearing Stereo Rose in the below picture. I hope you can notice the subtle glow on my cheek.

Rating: 5/5
Final Words: Stereo Rose is a must have MSF from the Apres Chic Collection. It gives a beautiful sheen and makes the skin glow. This is my first MSF and I am so proud that I got the best. It is still available in many MAC outlets so rush.
