First ever MAC purchases


I've never really understood the hype around MAC. I don't really know many people that use this brand but since becoming a beauty blogger, I've noticed nearly every blogger own's some products from MAC. I gave into the temptation and brought some products from them. I can't comment whether I like them yet but stay tuned for an update! I have the pro longwear foundation and the select moisture cover. What are your MAC fav's? Should I be writing MAC in block capitals? I'll stop saying MAC now. As you can tell I don't have the foggiest! Sshhh kia.

Follow me & see more pictures on twitter.

*EDIT before you considering spending a lot of money on a make up purchase do your research! I looked at loads of blog reviews, asked bloggers and watched youtube video's before deciding what to spend my pennies on!

  1. i am a long time lover of mac after my mum introduced me. my view is that it is generally very good quality and generally reasonably priced (although i did push the boat out recently and spend more that i would like to admit to on the limited edition prism bronzer, totally worth it!). I use studio fix power every day and most of my blushes are mac. I also love their tinted balms. although, a heads up if you know anyone going state side get them to buy for you, it is a lot cheaper! x

  2. I love MAC, but I hate spending money. So I look at reviews and whatnot all the time to determine what to buy first. Alot of times brands like Urban Decay or ELF might have a better vslue. I use MatchMaster foundation, and I LOVE it so much better than their other ones. So far my favorite products from them are their tinted lip conditioners and pigments.

  5. I have a few bit and bobs, mostly lipsticks. I don't buy the shadows and blushes normally (though I have a couple blushes) because for the price, you can get better imo and I have easy access to Inglot which I love. But the lipsticks are certainly awesome.

  10. I like shopping at MAC for 'bits', usually things like limited edition blushers (my Wonder Woman one is gorgeous!) and their Paint Pots are great too. I haven't properly tried any of their staples like their foundations, though I've heard they're good! x

  11. I loveeeee MAC but only for treats, I couldn't afford buying their products all of the time! I love their blushers eg. Well Dressed or LadyBlush and their lipsticks are amazing quality. Angel, Creme Cup and Creme d'Nude are some of my faves X

  19. haha ya I used to be into MAC but since I've found other products just as good and less in price. i think the hype w MAC (at least here) is they give 50% discount to make up artists so you see a lot of MUAs using MAC...

  20. I was converted to MAC about a year ago when I broke up with my boyfriend. And since then I have been absolutely in love with it! You get such a good finish with a relatively low price (compared to lancome etc) They've just launched a new skincare range which is also fab so check that out too!!
