MAC Stereo Rose Review and Swatches: Do You Need Stereo Rose?
MAC Stereo Rose. An urban legend, a myth, whispered about but never actually seen in person or for a retail price….sold for $100’s of dollars on E-bay (and will continue to be sold for that price…) this is one MAC Mineralize Skinfinish you NEED, if you can find it!
Call me an idiot but I didn’t think that Stereo Rose would be nearly as crazy as finding MAC Marine Life.
I was positive there would be 100’s of 1000’s of Stereo Rose just sitting happily at my MAC counter waiting for me to pick it up. Ummm no. This morning on it’s release I realized quickly that Stereo Rose waits for no one. I failed to order online and it SOLD out within a flash everywhere including Nordies which has a backorder of 7/30…yeah dream on, prob never see it.
I called my regular MAC Store and was told it was GONE, fine, outta here, hasta la vista sucka. I proceeded to call MAC Pro and other counters and bribed them to hold one for me but most said nope, sorry, come in and get it. MAC Pro in particularly wasn’t so helpful when I called, gee thanks guys.
But after numerous failed attempts the kind folk over at Macy’s (Thanks Mo, Mo, love you) saved me one and my sister went to pick it up this morning. Twitter was a whirl with Stereo Rose postings today and I got all paranoid that maybe I needed another one so I called Macy’s again and asked in a timid whisper, “Mo, anymore?” to which I got a reply, “Yup, two!” so off I went to Macy’s and picked one back up for myself and one for Enkore.
Three in a day?
What are the odds? What are the chances?
The makeup gods love me.
Did you get yours?
I sure hope so because it was worth the wait and the hype in my opinion.
I love Petticoat as you know but Stereo Rose can easily become a favorite. It’s quite pigmented, very smooth in finish sans chunky glitter and shimmery, and impacts a gorgeous warm, coral peach glow on cheeks. In some cases the shade almost looks orange-y peach. It can easily be used as a blush, highlighter, or hell go wild, use it as a shadow. I really like it and think it lives up to its crazy hype. I’m quite happy I got the chance to grab it.
Did you haul it?
If not, I highly suggest calling around, don’t wait for tomorrow, do it now, as it’s soon to become an urban legend once again.
I hope all of you on the hunt today located it and are enjoying it now!
