A couple of weeks ago I was in Westfield with the lovely Yinka and Shirley. We popped into MAC and I have to say it was probably the first time I have been in to a MAC store in ages, I think the last time was when I was in New York. I feel so out of the loop with all the new collections and colours, I tend to just stick to what I know. I somehow feel like my desire to buy something from every newly released collection has burnt out. I have got to that stage where I know what I like and I'm becoming less frivolous when it comes to buying make up.
So here are my staples that I picked up..
MAC Studio Sculpt
I think this has become my go to foundation for a number of reasons. This foundation is gel based and I love the creamy consistency of it. I find it's one of those foundations you can wear quite lightly or you can really build up for maximum coverage. I like the finish which is semi dewy. I always set mine with the prep and prime translucent powder but sometimes the finish without powder leaves the skin with a glow. I also love the fact that this foundation is water resistant, this means it is ideal for warmer climates. I have worn this foundation all over the world in all kinds of weather and I have to say it really stays put.
I am currently back to wearing this foundation in NC44.
£23.00 and available HERE.
MAC Paint in 'Bare Canvas'
I ran out of this product a while back and didn't get round to purchasing it again. I have to say though I haven't found another eye primer that beats this. I absolutely love this as the base for my eyeshadows such a tiny amount goes a small way and even though the tube is tiny it seems to last forever. My eye make up doesn't crease at all when I use this paint by MAC, i apply a small amount and blend it over the eyelid with my fingers. You have to work quite quick with eyeshadow to avoid the paint drying. Again this is a product I have worn in some of the warmest climates and my eyeshadow still manages to stay put. I really feel that this product is not raved about as much as it should be.
If you are looking for a new eye primer/base the paints by MAC are my favourite.
£14.50 and available HERE.
MAC Cremesheen Glass in 'Deelight'
As it had been a long time since I'd been in MAC you know there always has to be that one unnecessary purchase. Shirley was using this lipgloss throughout the day and honestly it worked so well with the lip liner and lipstick that she had on(That I also was wearing) so I decided to buy it. I'm not really in to glossy lips, actually I'm hardly in to glossy lips so that's why I felt like I needed 'Deelight' in my life. It's a gorgeous muted pinky toned cremesheen lip glass that just adds to and finishes off the perfect nude lip. I think this colour is fab on its own or accompanied with other colours. It is just gorgeous! I will definitely be sharing this with you in pictures the blogger in me had to photograph it before I could use it haha!
£16.50 and available HERE
Come to think of it now, MAC's prices have gone up and £16.50 is a LOT for a lip gloss! I didn't even realise..
What are your make up staples? Are you a big MAC fan?
