Mac Metal Rock MSF: Swatches & Dupe!

Thursday, May 31, 2012
I finally got my hands on one of the most raved about Mac MSF's!! 
 Metal Rock!




Metal Rock swatched heavy & blended out


Now on to the very close dupe... 

 Warm Blend & Metal Rock


 Warm Blend (middle strip) & Metal Rock
(both swatched heavy)

Warm Blend (middle strip) & Metal Rock
(both blended out)

Metal Rock and Warm blend are both limited edition MSF's. I included Warm Blend, even though it's LE as a dupe because many that are looking for Metal Rock may already own it's very close dupe. I had Warm Blend for years but never knew how similar it really was to Metal Rock. I recently ended up coming across a blog sale for this brand new, very rare MSF, and I immediately purchased it! I had to see what all of the hype was about since I really wasn't into makeup when it initially launched back in 2005, and missed out on it. I have to say it definitely lived up to its rave! Totally worth what I paid for it (double retail cost). Its a beautiful shade for WOC. But as you can see Warm Blend is a very close dupe. It's just a tad bit lighter, and without shimmer. So if you own Warm Blend, the middle strip will definitely do the job! Hope you guys enjoyed this post :)

Do you own Metal Rock and/or Warm Blend?

@Your Cosmetic Ally, Joanne I'm lucky I got my hands on it! They've been re-promoting MSF's a lot lately, hopefully this one will on their list :)

I found warm blend after searching on blog sales and now I'm excited that I don't have to do another search for metal rock...I too was caught up in the hype, but after seeing your swatches, I think I like warm blend better.

great post and enjoy!

Good Find! I've owned warm blend forever but don't have metal rock to compare it to... Earthshine from the new Heavenly Creatures looks like it could be in the family with these two could you do a comparison for me? Please and Thanks
