MAC "Rose is a Rose" E/S Quad Swatches

I went to Nordstrom last night, and I bought this MAC E/S quad. The quad is called "Rose is a Rose", and it's part of the "Rose Romance" collection that launched last month. The original release date was May 1st, but it didn't actually come out until last week. It's $36.00 USD, and it is only available at Nordstrom.

I made swatches, in case you're wondering how the colors look with and without primer. The swatches on the top do not have any base, and the swatches on the bottom are with MAC Cream Colour Base in "Luna".

  • Solar White (Frost) - golden white color with lots of shimmer (repromote)
  • Seeds of Love (Frost) - coral/pale orange color similar to Paradisco, but easier to blend!
  • Petal Worship (Lustre) - light pinkish lilac color similar to Stars 'N Rockets
  • Contrast (Velvet) - navy blue with purple color (permanent)
So you can think of it as paying $9 for each color in the quad. Pro refill pans are about $11 each (plus you'd have to buy a palette), so this quad is a cheaper alternative if you want colors like these as part of your makeup stash. :)
