Stereo Rose Dupe!

Were you able to get your hands on the limited edition 'Stereo Rose', one of the most talked about Mac mineralised skin finishes? If not, then keep reading!


I was recently sent a blush called 'i - glow Coral Crush' from Cid Cosmetics, a new British brand and it turns out to be almost identical to 'Stereo Rose', so I had to share...


It's a marbleised glow powder that looks like an msf, it looks quite pinky coral with gold veining. Initially I didn't relate it to Stereo Rose until I swatched it.


Here is Stereo Rose on the left and Coral Crush on the right, you can see how similar they are. They are both pigmented with no glitter, but Stereo Rose is a tiny bit smoother.


Here they are both swatched in different lighting. On close examination 'Coral Crush' looks a bit pinker and a smidgen darker....


BUT! Once you blend them out they look EXACTLY the same, I get the same effect on my cheeks as I do with Stereo Rose, it has the coral effect with the golden sheen.


The only downside is that 'Coral Crush' is more expensive than a msf, it's a whopping £23.50, but it's still cheaper then paying ebay prices for 'Stereo Rose'.

Do you have a more affordable dupe for Stereo Rose?

Disclaimer: I was sent the coral crush for review, I was not paid and I am not affiliated with the brand. Honest opinion as ALWAYS.

I had big hopes for falling in love with Stereo Rose when it was repromoted, but sadly it's not for my skintone. I had one of those cheesy makeover and ohotoshoots last year and they used new ID cosmetics, it seems like pretty good stuff if slightly over priced.

oO i got BarryM strawberry milkshake because of you! Lets hope there is no real strawberry in it! haha xx

I've seen New Cid in a beauty show and I thought their glow powders were really nice but a bit pricey.
Great post. XXX

esteeem said...

we sell this where I work, but I've never really looked at new CiD coz they seemed like a rip off brand.. i'll have a look at this blusher next time im in though, if it really is that good!

Marisa said...

Hello Muhshine!
How are you?
It looks like an excellent dupe, considering the MAC MSF was L.E, although obviously as you say the biggest downside is that it is more expensive...
Fortunately I got mine in the Warm & Cozy collection this year.
By the way, I always use it as a blush, do you have any other ways of makeing the best of this product?
Best,
Catanya
