When I first started getting into makeup, my go-to stores would be the drugstore (of course) and MAC. Now a days, I buy almost all of my makeup from Sephora - VIB 3 years in a row; I have yet to reach Rouge. I guess it's because Sephora carries a bunch of brands and I feel it's more convenient to find everything in one store. Regardless, I still catch myself going on MAC's website and browsing a few times a month. These are a few things that I did bring myself to buy over time:
I think the first thing I ever bought from MAC was their Studio Fix Fluid (I'm in the shade NC35, btw). This was one of my favourite foundations for a long time. It gave me a really good full coverage. The formula is on the thicker side, so I prefer to apply it using a Beauty Blender. If you read my current makeup favourites, you would know I'm loving their Fix+. It's the best to pull your whole face together and take away any powdery look when you apply your makeup.
Another product from them that I love is their Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle. I love this highlighter. It gives off a nice glow that isn't too overpowering. As you can tell from the photo, mine is shattered. I can't recall what happened but I just know I always feel disappointed when I reach for it. Which reminds me, I've been meaning to try that alcohol trick to fix this.
I feel like the Pro Longwear Concealer has been raved about by everyone at one point. I did love it at one point until it started creasing under my eyes. Now that I think of it, it could be because I switched up my under eye powder. Nonetheless, I still think it's worth a try for people who are considering trying it. I have a few Eyeshadows from them: Soft Brown, Sky & Sea, ???. There's not really much to say about them, they're just good. I also own one Blush from them in the shade Harmony. I love this shade, it's a matte and really subtle shade. On to the lips portion, I have three Lip Pencils that I absolutely LOVE. I have Whirl, Stripdown, and Spice. I really recommend them!
MAC's Lipsticks were something I started collecting back then, for a short while. The shades I have are all nicely pigmented. The shades I own are Stone, Girl About Town, Kinda Sexy, Rebel, Ruby Woo, Heroine, Plumful, Saint Germain, and Up The Amp. My favourite ones are Stone, Ruby Woo & Kinda Sexy.
And that's all. Like I mentioned, I have been browsing their site often. I feel like a MAC spree has been long overdue. Keep checking my blog regularly if you're interested in seeing what MAC products I've been eyeing.
