Brand of the Moment: MAC

Seeing as you all responded so well to my last two brand of the moment posts, I decided it was time to do another one - this time focusing on the brand, MAC. For me, MAC sits somewhere in between drugstore and high end - it's not ridiculously overpriced, but it's not cheap either. However, it's not something I usually buy on a regular basis because there aren't many MAC stores near me at all, so most of these things I have either gotten as a present for Christmas/birthday or I bought at duty free.

I'm not going to go into a huge amount of detail on each of the products, as I have done reviews on most of them before, all of which will be linked below.

Quad Palette - This is the most recent addition to my collection and is already one of my favourites. For some reason, a quad palette is much more appealing to me than a big 15 one, so if I purchase any more eye shadows, I'll probably be putting them in more quads! My favourite and most used colours from my current palette are definitely All That Glitters and Sumptuous Olive - they go perfectly together.

Lipsticks in Creme Cup and Hue - Ahh, MAC lipsticks. For me, these are slightly overpriced, and I swear the price just keeps going up? But despite this, I still love them! The range of colours and finishes seems to go on forever - there's just so many to pick from. My favourite would be Creme Cup, a really pretty and natural pink shade that is perfect for everyday.

Paint Pot in Bare Study - This was my first ever cream eye shadow and I still love it. Bare Study doesn't give a huge amount of colour, but it does make my shadow stay on all day and also adds a bit of sparkle to the look as well. In the future, I'd really like to try out some more of these, especially the one in Painterly.

Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle - This is my oldest MAC product out of everything, and it's definitely the most well loved. I use it every single day in a backwards 3 motion on the side of my face and it adds a lovely, natural glow to the skin. I've had this for probably a couple of years now and there's still so much product left, so it's definitely good value for money.

What is your favourite MAC product?


  1. I totally agree with MAC being between high end and drugstore but I'm sure their prices are going up :(

  6. I've only got one MAC product - 'Girl About Town' lipstick, I definitely want to branch out though!

  7. I like to treat myself to MAC products, the quad is on my wish list along with Soft and Gentle. My favourite product from MAC would have to be Honeylove Lipstick.
