MAC Stereo Rose: Dupe

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Stereo Rose - £21.50
The MAC mineralize skin finish limited edition in Stereo Rose is the latest product to cause mass hype around the bloggersphere, so much so that it is completely sold out everywhere (wah). I really wanted to get my hands on this product as it looks right up my street but after searching everywhere online I was forced to except that it was sold out and that it just wasn't meant to be. 





Tesco VIVO baked blush in peaches and cream - £3.00
Me and my housemate went food shopping last week to Tesco - one of the big extra stores, and ended up browsing the health and beauty isle instead of the food isles. We came across one of Tesco's own make-up brands, VIVO, which has a range of 'Baked Blush's' that look really similar to the MAC mineralize skin finishes. I picked up the shade 'peaches and cream' which is described as 'A stunning blush with pink undertones to give all over warmth and colour to your complexion'. 

It was only £3.00(!) and I really really like it. It's such a lovely soft pink colour which is really pigmented and warming on the skin. There is also a  light shimmer running through it which makes it really flattering and there is no need for highlighter. I feel like this will satisfy the hole in my make up collection that not being able to get Stereo Rose has left. Make sure you check the range out if you're ever in Tesco as I also got some lovely lip products for £1! Thanks for reading
