Hey all ! Weekend is over and I am feeling the Monday Blues badly. Just before I start sulking into this feeling, I thought I will talk about something that makes me happy.. and that’s MAKEUP, of-course !! So today, I am going to talk about my 5 absolute favorites from MAC Cosmetics. I still remember, when I did not have access to all makeup, the one brand that I badly wanted to try was MAC. Their store was all about luxury and the ambiance looked dreamy to me and I am sure, any makeup newbie today as well would feel the same. Now the brand has an overwhelming range of products for each category like face, nails, lips, eyes etc and it can get a little bewildering to pick something out of their massive collection so let me share with you my most favorite 5 items of the list that are totally worth it.
MAC Prolongwear Concealer
This one is hands down my all time favorite. I can’t even explain in words how beautifully it works on oily/acne prone skin. It is a miracle in a tiny bottle. It comes in so many shades that it is just next to impossible that you won’t find your right match. The consistency is medium thick and thus covers the acne spots like a dream. Also, this one doesn’t settle into fine lines around the eyes, nor does it crease, so it is perfect for the under eye dark circles as well. Love love love it.
MAC Prep+Prime Fix+
If you are someone who is constantly worried about your foundation moving around or looking cakey , here is what you need – MAC Prep+Prime Fix+ . Just one spritz and all of the powderiness and dryness will go away leaving you makeup base looking more skin like. It contains an infusion of vitamins and minerals that blend every inch of your makeup seamlessly. What more? You can also spray it on your brush before dipping it into the eyeshadow, glitter or pigment for it to stay in place and increase their longevity.
MAC Studio Fix Foundation
A must try foundation for two reasons – one, it is available in a variety of tones and two, it gives you that soft-focus effect on your face by minimizing the appearance of imperfections, pores and fine lines. It has medium-buildable coverage and natural matte finish. It feels extremely comfortable on the skin and is long lasting, so it makes a perfect choice for oily skinned girls. Like all other foundations, this one is also available in ample shades thereby offering you many options to choose from. I totally love it for its consistency and performance.
MAC Matte Lipstick – Ruby Woo
Packed in the small black bullet, MAC lipsticks are sure to get your attention. While they have endless colors and ranges, finding that one perfect shade can surely give you a tough time. Well Well Well, there are still a few hot favorites in their matte collection and my personal favorite has to be Ruby Woo. It’s that perfect deep red that looks flattering on each and every skin tone. And its budge-proof matte formula is like a cherry on the top. Though for those of you who are keen on trying out other popular shades, here they are – Mocha, Impassioned, Mehr, Crosswires , Brave, Chilli, Rebel and Velvet Teddy.
MAC Brush Cleaner
If you use makeup brushes on a regularly, you gotta get your hands on this product ASAP ! It works to clean out the makeup lodged in your brush within seconds and the brushes therefore can be used within a couple of minutes. You can use it for deep cleansing of you brushes along with water or can simply pour a few drops onto a tissue and rub the brush head on it to get an instantly clean brush. It also disinfects your brushes as well no need to worry about skin infections either. Certainly a keeper !
