I get asked often what my favorite Mac Cosmetics products are. I like a lot of their stuff and use quite a bit of it but there are a few things that I have purchased over and over again. Here is a list of a few things and why they are favorites.
Mac Lip Conditioner (Tube) $15/.5 oz- I love this stuff. I have three tubes open at all times. One in my car, one on my makeup counter, and another on the nightstand. Nothing else works as well for my lips and since I use this so much my lips are never chapped and ready for blog post pics. In fact thats when my obsession with it really started. After I started blogging. Chapped lips equal bad lip gloss and lipstick posts! It’s so expensive though. I tried to replace it with a Nivea product but that didn’t work out.
Mac Cleanse Off Oil/Tranquil $30/5 oz.’s- I have been using cleansing oil to remove my makeup for several months now. I refused to even try it before because I was sure with my oily t-zone using an “oil” would cause massive breakouts. Not the case. In fact removing makeup with an oil is way gentler on my skin and I can stop getting industrial sized makeup remover wipes at the warehouse store nearby. The makeup just melts off with this oil. It’s changed my cleansing routine forever. I have a full review here.
Mac Paint Pots $18.50/.17 oz’s- I’m kind of obsessed with these. I don’t have a ton of colors but the ones I have I’m CRAZY about. The one I use most is Constructivist. It goes with my Urban Decay Naked palette like peas and carrots. Ha. Sorry Forest Gump anyone? Anyway I use Paint Pots as creamy eye bases before I apply powder shadow, alone, and a few of them together without any powder shadow. I use Blackground a lot also. It’s great for smoky eye looks!
Mac Raizin Blush $20/.21 oz’s- This is my favorite blush ever. It’s matte and it just works on my face like nothing else! It’s a reddish brown sorta shade. I think the key is that it’s matte. I love how it brings out my cheeks and I have a nice dent in it from lots of use. I will never be without this blush.
Mac Matchmaster (shade 7.5) Foundation $33/1.18oz’s- This is my skin in a bottle. This is the best color match for me out of all the foundations that I have ever tried. The first time I put it on I was so excited. I kept putting it on and I couldn’t see it on my skin. It just blended in seamlessly. It doesn’t break me out and my oily t-zone doesn’t have a fit after a few hours and turn into a greasy mess. Full review here. I also love the Pro Longwear Foundation in NC50. I’ve purchased two of those and that’s a very close second. The color match isn’t as perfect as the Matchmaster 7.5 though.
