MAC is one of my all time favourite brands and I'm sure I share that opinion with practically the whole of the makeup loving community. As I own and have tried a fair few Mac products, it was only right to share with you six of those products that I believe you need to splurge on...like right now.
Mineralize Skinfinish | Lightscapade, Soft & Gentle
If you've had a Mac Mineralize Skinfinish on your wishlist for the longest time, you should just take the plunge and get it because you will not regret it. I lusted after Soft & Gentle for what felt like forever and I'm so glad I bought it as it's super pigmented, and is the most beautiful light gold highlight, which gives you gorgeous glowy angel skin! Because I loved that one so much I also bought Lightscapade which has now become my all time favourite highlighter and I use it non-stop. It's much lighter in colour compared to Soft & Gentle, which I love as I have fair skin, and it has lovely pearly, candlelit effect. They are stunning.
Prep + Prime Highlighter | Light Boost
This one I know I've described before as 'beauty sleep in a bottle'. The shade I use is Light Boost which is perfect for adding light to the under-eye area and gets rid of any tell-tale signs you were up all night having a little Netflix binge (we've all been there). Not only does it disguise those pesky dark circles, but it's also great if you like to contour and highlight too. Popping a little down the bridge of the nose, centre of the chin, middle of the forehead, brow bone etc. works wonders!
Mac's Blot Powder is a product I've repurchased time and time again as it's an absolute must-have for me. I have fairly oily skin and it really is so good at getting rid of any excess shine. The main reason I love it though, is because it's used purely for blotting away shine and it doesn't add any coverage or colour, so there's no chance of it making your face go cakey no matter how much you use! I keep this one in my handbag and I use it without fail every day for makeup touch ups!
Lipstick | Creme Cup
Out of all the makeup products Mac sell, their lipstick has to be my all time favourite (and most likely everyone else's too!). If you haven't tried anything from Mac before, one of their lipsticks is definitely a safe bet as they have so many different colours and finishes that you're bound to find something you will love. My personal favourite is Creme Cup which is a beautiful creamy nude pink shade and also happened to be my first ever Mac product!
Paint Pots | Vintage Selection & Let's Skate
The Paint Pots are also brilliant if you like cream eyeshadows. They're great if you want to use them as a base for other eyeshadows or if you want a quick, no fuss makeup look as they are really easy to use. I apply them with my fingers and blend them out slightly with a 217 brush from Mac, so you don't have to be a pro to use them. Painterly and Soft Ochre are lovely 'base' shades that prime and create a canvas for your eyeshadow. My favourite shade is Vintage Selection which is a gorgeous shimmery light bronze shade!
Lip Liners | Stripdown, Whirl, Soar, Dervish & Subculture
A particularly wishlist worthy item is of course their Lip Liners! The formula is brilliant as the aren't too dry that it's difficult to apply the product, yet not too creamy that they don't last long. They have so many lovely shades, but I especially have a little obsession with all of their neutral colours! Subculture, Soar and Dervish are makeup bag essentials.
