MAC Semi Precious Lip Swatches and a Pre-Weekend Check-In

Published in: MAC Makeup

Completely and totally random (what else is new?), but this afternoon while I was doing these lip swatches of a few Cremesheens Glasses and Lipsticks from the new MAC Semi Precious Collection, that Adele song, Rolling in the Deep, started to play on the radio, but for some strange reason, the chorus sounded different to me…


We could have had it all,
Rolling with the sheep,
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling with the sheep)
You had my heart inside of your hand,
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat.
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling with the sheep)

LOL! Yes, I think I’ve lost my mind. 🙂 It’s been a long week — a good one, for sure — but a long one, and I’m really looking forward to this weekend.

Tomorrow I’m meeting my BFF Cindy at the de Young Museum in the city to check out an exhibit I’ve been wanting to catch called Balenciaga and Spain. After that, I’ve got a few errands to run, maybe work out, do some cleaning around the house — oh, and fool around with makeup, of course. That almost doesn’t need to be said, ha!

Do you have any plans? Whatever you’re doing, I hope you’re able to sneak in some time for yourself. It’s important, you know?

And speaking of important things, what do ya think of these MAC Semi Precious lip colors? They arrive on MAC counters and in stores July 7 in North America, and internationally some time next month.

    The glosses are nice, but I want that bee ring!

  2. Nadine says:

    Gosh, you look so pretty in these pictures! I probably won’t get anything from the collection. Lately I’ve been looking through my make-up stash and using things I never really gave a chance, or old favourites! Its fun, and free!

  3. Cheree says:

    Hi Karen. I received my Evo Revo today and I love it!! The color is beautiful and perfect for my medium tan skin. Glad I grabbed an extra tube:-). Great job!!

  4. Josie says:

    Ohhh love geo pink and your bee ring! There is an asian mall here in Toronto me and my mom always go to for blinged out jewelry and i got some crazy big rings like a fox, cat, snake, even a turtle so i got to check for a bee!

  5. Jessi says:

    I would never be able to pull off Musky (Husky!) Amethyst but it looks great on you! I’m a Cremesheen lover but I’m just “meh” on these colors. I’ll have to swatch them in person before I decide I don’t need them. I’ll probably end up buying them all or something!

  6. Heidi says:

    That Geo Pink is one of the most beautiful colors I’ve seen in awhile!

    Tomorrow I will do my usual grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s. Sunday is church and I don’t know what I’m doing after that. Maybe something will come up. I actually don’t mind not having much scheduled.

    Enjoy the de Young museum. I love that place!

  7. Priscilla says:

    Ant advice on actually nabbing the items online? I always want the lipsticks, but they run out so fast!

  8. Kate Williamson says:

    Saw the Balenciaga exhibit at the de Young when I was home for a visit. So amazing! You’ll love it. The gift shop has these uber cute totes made of nylon. They fold up and fit into their own tiny little nylon bags. A bag in a bag…ingenious!

  9. Bellyrockin says:

    I’m definitely planning on getting Gem Of Roses and Geo Pink – so pretty!

  10. Advah says:

    Geo Pink looks FAB on you! Love the views from your balcony too!

    Have a great weekend, the plan here involves cleaning too..

  11. Emily says:

    Oh my gosh! My band just played Rolling in the Deep last week at a concert!
    As far as lip colors go, I love the lipsticks. And I need them badly. =)

  12. Sonya says:

    I love Geo Pink! I may just have to pick it up. Your weekend sounds fun – I think I will have to stop by work both Saturday and Sunday, unfortunately :<

  13. elwoods17 says:

    I love Looks Like Sin. I also love Natural Flare for a sexy yes “natural look.” Karen, I heard that exhibit is to die for. I saw a pic of one of the gowns, stunning.

  14. Anna says:

    Karen you are so pretty I love your pics!:)

  15. Erin says:

    Great swatches, thanks! I want Gem of Roses, but I really should stop buying lip products!

  16. Marian says:

    I’m taking it easy today after really working hard on my house for the past month. Think I’ll lounge by the pool, maybe with a Marguerita.
    That bee ring is the bomb!
    Karen, you are looking so radiant lately!!!!

  17. Chris25 says:

    I totally love Looks like Sin and Gem of Roses! Speaking of museums, I really need to visit the Met, the MOMA, and a bunch of others in this great city.

  18. Miri says:

    I didn’t expect to like Musky Amethyst but it looks awesome. Where did you get the bee ring? So cute. Thanks so much for posting the swatches. 🙂

  19. Elle says:

    Your new song lyrics had me cracking up. I just had this image of Adele rolling down a hill covered in sheep…

  20. Alka says:

    Loving these even more now! And the bee ring too. 🙂 Hope you have a great day!

  21. Neetha says:

    Hey Karen,

    Have a great day 🙂

  22. Nina says:

    the cremesheen glasses are lovely! i would like them all!!!

  23. Carrie says:

    So pretty. Love your ring!

  24. Soo says:

    Gem of Roses looks really good on you!
    I love how Musky Amethyst looks in the tube but I’m totally not bold enough to wear it /don’t think I can pull it off

  25. CynthiaCCC says:

    Mmmm, Gem of Roses looks like just the kind of color I like. I’m always searching for the perfect sheer rose lipstick. Lancome’s Moulin Rose juicy tube is a great lipgloss for that purpose, but I need a lipstick that does the job! Alas, I’m still waiting for my 2 tubes of EvoRevo to arrive (the UPS tracking site says Tuesday!), and now I’m already jonesing for yet another thing. Le sigh…
