My favourite MAC products

"The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion .. 
but cosmetics are easier to buy"

I just thought I'd start of with a quote I stumbled across the other day. I sure do love buying cosmetics, and I have become subject to the hype of MAC products over the past 2 years and have built up my own very small collection of them. HOWEVER, what I'd like to make clear is that you don't have to have MAC products. I am such a lover of highstreet, drugstore, low cost products that I begrudge paying the prices at MAC and just because those 3 letters are on the product - it isn't necessarily any better than the others. In fact, I haven't purchased any MAC in over a year - but I do love the MAC I have and thought I'd share with you some of my favourite products and a MAC collection!

So, above is about 90% of my MAC makeup, these are my favourites that I reach for quite often. My MSF in soft and gentle is by far my favourite product from MAC ever. It is the most beautiful highlighter/pot of glittery goodness I have ever used and despite coming in at a hefty £22 it seems to be a never ending product. Even if it wasn't never ending - I would definitely buy this again, it's just beautiful. Another MSF I like is the normal powder in light, which adds that little bit of extra coverage. The only foundation I've tried from MAC has been face and body, but it is one I enjoy. It's definitely a good skin day kind of foundation, as it's water based and very sheer coverage (although, it is buildable) I tend to only opt for this when my skin doesn't need much in the way of coverage - I'm in the shade C1. My favourite MAC blusher has to be plum foolery, it's the very first mac purchase I made and the shade is beautiful. It's a deep pink/plum with a light gold shimmer throughout that makes it suitable for any time of the year, but I especially love this in winter. My favourite concealer to use is studio finish in NW15 which is a pretty heavy duty concealer that will cover almost anything and last all day. Lipstick wise I chose 3 favourite shades; Hue - my first and favourite mac lipstick, speed dial and creme cup

What's your favourite MAC product?

  1. I really want one of the MAC lipsticks. But I don't think they sell them here in Belgium :( I've read such great reviews about them so I really want to try one!
