Typically, M.A.C. brings out a couple of large collections during the summer and one of them usually includes a mineralized collection.  For the newbies, mineralized makeup usually contains natural minerals in a powdered form and may be baked into a solid form.  It is touted as being better for the skin and there are less additives and binders that hold the particles together.  These products can be used both dry and wet which is different from typical pressed powder products.

Here is some information about M.A.C.’s newly released Semi Precious collection.  It is available from July 7 in the US and Canada at M.A.C. stores, counters and online.  Available internationally later on in July.

We can all admire a woman with a 30-carat diamond. But the new dazzle is semi-precious. Gems that are rare in spirit, rich in substance and worn not as jewels but fare more fluidly, on the skin. In MAC semi-precious, three mineralize formulas just became richer with the infusion of four finely milled gems each bringing their own earthy and spiritual affluence to the mineralize collection. Consider the beauty of bronzeite with the regal golden-bronze flashes; mysteriously electric black tourmaline; golden glittering pyrite and lepiodlite, a calming crystalline lilac stone. Imagine the impact, gleam, and depth of color as they work their mystique on mineralize eye shadows, mineralize skinfinishes and mineralize blush. Setting them off; lipsticks creamsheen glass, zoom fast black mascara, mineralize statin finish spf 15 foundation, mineralize face+body lotion and revitalizing energy mineralize charged water. For skillful application, four new limited-life split fibre brushes a concise half and half compilation of natural and synthetic fibres both sides deposit and distribute color for a soft diffused look use the natural side; for an application the blends, buffs and fuses the color to the skin, use the synthetic. Like any  limited edition, these elements start off rare, and tend to get rarer… get rich while you can!
