What happens when you combine the love for alluring gem stones with a total passion for creating high quality makeup? Well, in the case of MAC Cosmetics you get a completely lust worthy makeup collection called suggestively “Semi Precious”. Get ready to be conquered by the seductive and tempting tones from this comprehensive collection.

Those who are longtime fans of MAC Cosmetics are fully aware of the fact that the company never lacks creativity in terms of new collections. In fact, this prolific attitude in terms of constantly coming up with new makeup choices is one of the characteristics that have set the company apart from many others. The new summer 2011 makeup collection from the brand, set to be released in July 2011, is certainly one that is worth remembering as it is one of the most fascinating collections of the season.

The grand diversity and beauty of gems, the strongest inspiration source for the collection, has truly a fabulous incentive as we can see by taking a quick glance. After getting seduced by the complexity of the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Eyeshadows it seems that we will have the opportunity to experiment with even more completely fabulous multi-tonal eyeshadows that will give you the eye makeup look that you always dreamed of.

However, the blushes offered by the brand are equally impressive as they have much of the same wonderful characteristics that eye-shadows posses. In fact, it can be quite difficult to even distinguish between all the options available:

MAC Semi Precious Mineralize Blush ($23)
Feeling Flush – a fab pink, deep blue pink and soft brown combo
Warmth of Coral – a seductive peach and coral shade
