TOP 5 PRODUCTS | MAC8:30 AM
Next in my Top 5 series is MAC. I’ve decided to do a few of these ‘Top 5’ blog posts to highlight the absolute gems of brands’ product collections, and what better brand to talk about than the reigning king of beauty? MAC is a brand that I sort of hate to love. For a start, they’re still testing on animals (come on MAC, pull your heads out of your arses), plus, their products are so so so expensive I almost resent buying them. That being said, the quality is undeniable and I’ve not tried a single MAC product that wasn’t great in one way or another. Here are my top 5 favourite MAC things!
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
Of all of MAC’s foundations, this one suits me the best. It’s silky, yet thick and you can start with a fine, sheer coverage and build to a perfectly flawless one. Personally, I don’t find that MAC’s foundation shades are quite suited to me because I always end up looking a little yellow, but the Studio Sculpt in NW15 is just about right.
MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl
I’m fairy confident that everyone on earth loves Whirl. Made famous by the infamous Kylie Jenner, and adored by those 90s crazed among us, it’s become a staple in loads of my friends’ makeup bags. MAC has since brought out a lipstick in the same shade *cue me losing my shit* and so I’ve now got the full collection under my belt.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
All other concealers can go home, thanks for coming. This really is the champion of champions. In the past, this has hidden spots, scars, dark circles, and redness. Depending on what time of the year it is for me, and therefore how tanned I am, I can also use this as the most durable, hardwearing highlight, too. This stuff won’t budge, and it has never ever creased while I’ve had it on. I need a new bottle ASAP!
MAC Lipstick in Paramount
This is truly one of MAC’s unsung heroes. You can google pretty much any MAC shade and find a million swatches, but not this one. It’s almost like hidden treasure. It’s definitely one of these 90s shades that I’m so crackers for! It’s a beautiful brick toned blood red, and apparently flattering on a whole host of skintones. It’s also one that not many people own, so if you’re hunting for something a little less well-known, definitely check out Paramount.
MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
No shocks here, then. Look how tiny the lipstick is now! Quick, I’ll have a meltdown unless I order a new one. Velvet Teddy is my every day, go to shade. A darker nude, slightly beigey pink, with a beautiful suede-like finish. It’s like lipstick porn to me, and I literally wear it day in/day out because it’s so flattering with my complexion. Obviously, you know how universally loved this lippy is, and if you haven’t tried it yet, please remove yourself from beneath the rock you live under and give it a go!
Lots of love,
