MAC Favourites!

Monday, 22 October 2012

I thought a cool first post idea would be my MAC favourites. MAC are one of my favourite brands overall, in particular their lipsticks! 

My first favourite item is the eyeshadow 'Espresso' which I use every single day to fill in my brows. I find it works best with the Eco Tools eyeliner brush to create a really natural look and is the perfect matte brown for my hair colour. 

Next up are the MAC paint pots. The two colours I have are Rubenesque (left) and Paintery (right). They both make really great bases for eyeshadow, but work equally well alone. Rubenesque is a beautiful peachy gold shade that can just add a really nice colour to your lid, whilst I often use Painterly to perfect my eye area covering up any discolouration.

MAC Summer Haze mineralize eyeshadow came out with the limited edition 'Naturally' collection this year and I've been obsessed ever since. This eyeshadow is the most perfect rose gold colour!

This palette contains my four favourite shadows from MAC but in particular, my all time favourite 'All That Glitters' (top right) which is a lovely pinky gold shade. Also in the palette are 'Ricepaper' (top left), 'Sable' (bottom left) and 'Satin Taupe' (bottom right), which is a great crease colour.

I don't hear much about MAC's Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel but it is one of my favourite highlighters and definitely deserves more recognition! 

Perhaps one of the most well known items from MAC is their Mineralise Skinfinish in 'Soft and Gentle' which is truly an amazing powder for highlighting. It leaves a noticeable sheen on your cheekbones whilst adding a glow to the face.

My all time favourite blush from MAC is another not so spoken about item. This is 'Coygirl', a beautiful plummy pink. It really adds that natural flush to your cheeks and helps to sculpt the face also.

Another cult product from MAC is their Mineralise Skinfinish setting powders. It is perfect for setting your make up whilst leaving your skin looking natural.

Finally are my favourite MAC products, their lipsticks. These six are my top picks of my collection, as you can see I wear a lot more dark/bright colours than I do nudes! From L-R they are Craving, Girl About Town, Chili, Diva, Cut A Caper (LE) and Charmed, I'm Sure (LE).

Thanks for reading!
