MAC Stereo Rose - Review & Swatches

MAC Stereo Rose has been a blogger favourite for a long time so when I saw it was being re-released as part of the Fantasy of Flowers collection I knew I had to have it! However, I have heard that it isn't the exact same shade as the Stereo Rose that had been released previously which is a bit misleading, but I'm happy to have it nonetheless. 

Let's take a moment to just look at how beautiful this is....

Stereo Rose is a Mineralize Skinfinish described as a 'copper bronze'. It is a peachy pink shade with a metallic sheen so it is like a blush and highlight rolled into one. I definitely wouldn't use a highlighter on top of this unless you are going for the disco ball effect but this gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks, making my skin look really bright and healthy. I've worn this everyday since I got it and I really do love it.

The shade is similar to Benefit's Rockateur blush but definitely more glowing.

I do love Stereo Rose, but I am disappointed it isn't as coral as the previous releases. I think MAC should have just released this product with a different name to avoid confusion and it would probably still be as successful. Stereo Rose retails for £22 and is part of the Fantasy of Flowers Collection for Spring 2014.
 I also purchased a lipstick from the same collection which I have reviewed here.

What do you think of Stereo Rose? Let me know in the comments below....
