Brand Focus: MAC Favourites

Sunday, 10 April 2016


Heya Dolls!

Todays post is a brand focus where I am sharing some of my favourite MAC products with you.

MAC has got to be, by far one of my favourite makeup brands. They products might be pricey but they are so worth it! They just scream quality, form the product itself to the packaging.



Fix + - I feel as though this product is a confusing one for some people. When I first started seeing fix + become popular and more spoke about I was used to people using it as a setting spray as it is described as a finishing spray on the website. A lot of people were using it as a setting spray and writing bad reviews as their makeup didn't last very well, that is because this product is NOT supposed to prolong your makeup, it is to 'finish' your makeup. If you use a lot of powders like me this product is amazing for making your makeup come back to life. I feel when using a lot of powder it can make your makeup look really flat and well, powdery. This 'fixes' that.



Oil Control Lotion - I went into the Cambridge ages ago and asked for one of the MUAs to match me to  foundation. The MUA who was assisting me was os helpful and a really good sales person, I went in for a foundation and came out with over £100 worth of products, which is easily done! I mentioned I has oily skin and she suggested I should try this product. I was hesitant as other 'oil control' products did nothing but break me out. However this products is amazing! I like to use a generous amount on my face underneath my primer and it makes my makeup last so much longer and I don't look like a greasy mess by the end of the day. 



Paint pot in Soft Ocre - I had see this product used by so many beauty YouTubers and decided to try it out myself. I originally bought Painterly which is the same type of thing but warm toned, which wasn't what I wanted. I am an avid fake tanner and naturally olive skinned anyway therefore I have a lot of yellow ones in my skin. so much so I am NC30 in MAC foundations which is practically yellow! Anyway. This product is the best eye primer/base I have ever used! I used to love the UD Primer Potion but this is so much better!!!!


Velvet Teddy - I'm certain that most of you would have guessed what this product was before even reading this...Velvet Teddy is a classic, It became extremely popular during the 'Kylie Jenner' lip hype. Since then the 'hype' has died down a lot but people still love this lipstick and I'm not surprised as its beautiful. This is my all time favourite MAC lipstick and I think it always we be! It applies like a dream, although its a matte finish it isn't drying at all and lasts really well too! Im sure most of you already have this in your collection, if you don't then you NEED it!!



Soar Lip Pencil - This colour is so stunning! It is a reddish brown shade and I love it! When I first bought this shade I always paired it with a lipstick in the shade Twig (which I still love) but recently I am obsessed with wearing it on it's own. I love a good ol' matte lip so a simple lip pencil is perfect for me. The thing I love most about this is it lasts forever and a day on my lips, it lasts a lot longer on my lips than any matte lippie!! When I am out and about I cannot stand having to top up my lipstick so wearing a pencil on it's own is the perfect solution for me!

What is your favourite MAC product?

  1. I adore mac as well, their highlighters are amazing too (soft & gentle being the perfect one for me!) and their lipstick formulas are some of my favourite! I'm so embarrassed I thought the fix + spray was a setting spray from what I'd read online...oops! xx

    1. You really should give it a go! You can buy smaller bottles instead of the large ones if you're not sure if it'll be right for you but I couldn't be without it now! -xo
