My favorites from….. MAC

I couldn’t do this series without mentioning MAC.  I credit MAC with getting me interested in cosmetics.  Please note….the below photos do NOT encompass my entire collection but what I’m showing you truly are my favorites! I also have some items from MAC that are unopened and while I know they could be potential favorites, I decided against including them in this post.

 

My favorites from MAC

My favorites from MAC

MAC blush

MAC blush

I’m a sucker for great blush and MAC makes wonderful blush!  From L-R: Sakura, Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom and Daft Pink.  As you know, I love blush with dimension and tones which reflects my favorites above! These blushes have great color payoff and blend effortlessly into skin.

eyeshadow quads

The MAC eyeshadow quads shown above are part of different collections that have come out.  I don’t pick out single MAC shadows-I prefer the ‘pre-selected’ color combinations.  From L-R: Caviar Dreams, Cutie, Angel Flame, Call me bubbles.  In my ‘early’ days, I would’ve steered clear of the rust/orange combinations but they look so great on my blue eyes! MAC eyeshadows are hit and miss as in, some of the colors are AWESOME in terms of finish and payoff while others are quite weak (the orange in the angel flame quad).

 

MAC paint pots

As eye bases go, these are just about as perfect as can be.  From L-R bare study, and pro longwear chilled on ice.  I would purchase more of these but they last so long that I’d rather use up what I have.

MAC eyeliner

MAC eyeliner

MAC has so many eyeliners and yet I only have this one!  I bought this because of the high pigment and ease of application.  If not familiar, this one in the photo is part of the surf baby collection.

Powerchrome eye pencil

This is one of my newer MAC acquisitions courtesy of Maria a.k.a. Pebbles Flintstone on YouTube.  It has quickly made its way into favorites due to ease of application and fantastic color payoff. I love the dimension/foiled look of this color as well.

MAC lipsticks

MAC lipsticks

From L-R lip treatment (do they make this anymore?),  Hot Gossip, Craving, Bust Out, and Blooming Lovely.  I have a LOT of MAC lipsticks….but these are my favorites!  All of them look absolutely beautiful on my lips and are not as drying as I know MAC lip products can be.  I’ll miss the 2 limited editions on the right but I promised myself I would just enjoy them!

And there you have it…my MAC favorites.  See anything you recognize? What are your favorites? Should I be trying anything else? Let me know in the comments!
