It’s no surprise that MAC Cosmetics is a cult favourite to so many Makeup Artists.Why? Because the quality and formulas are among some of the best in the beauty industry for so many years. These products are tried and true and are beloved and highly reviewed. I can’t think of one MAC product that I have tried and totally hated. Can you?
Today we are going to go over my top 9 products that should be on everyone’s MAC Cosmetics wish list.
1. Prep + Prime Fix+ $30 CAD
This is the best product that Mac has to offer and this would definitely be a desert island product for me. On days when my makeup looks overly powdery or I am just not feeling my look, I spray this on and it just melts the makeup beautifully into the skin. I feel like it gives my makeup a hydrated glow. I also spray it onto an eyeshadow brush to make my shimmer pop more. I always carry it in my bag when I am on my flight as I feel like it gives the skin more hydration.
2. Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 $35 CAD
Don’t fix what isn’t broken… I’ve been using this foundation for years and love it. I’ve tried countless foundations over the years and used many of them but always came back running to this. It has a classic timeless finish, you really can’t go wrong with this. Also, the shade range is very easy to understand and extremely inclusive.
3. Russian Red Lipstick $23 CAD
The mother of all red lipsticks is MAC Russian Red. It Dries to a matte finish, without being drying and lasts all day long.
4. Blushbaby Powder Blush $28 CAD
I love MAC blushes and own a lot of different colours/finishes. In fact, it’s almost all MAC blushes that I own. It’s soft and blends well onto the skin. Didn’t need much to add that pop of colour I wanted on my cheeks. Their blushes remain at the top of my list for favourite blush. The pan sizes are very large so you get a large amount of product for $28.
5. Lip Pencil $22 CAD
The best ever !! Although I have a bunch of lipliners from MAC, all of them are long-lasting and blend well. It lasts all day without irritation.
6. Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette $48 CAD
Highly pigmented and very blendable, this is by far the best contour palette I‘ve ever used!
7. MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream $40 CAD
The cream is very light and applies easily. It gives the skin a nice dewy finish. Sometimes depending on the lighting, you can see some pink reflecting off the skin but it’s very subtle. Leaves the skin glowing but without being dramatic. It’s nice to wear on its own when you don’t feel like doing a full face of makeup.
8. False Eyelashes Type 3 $20 CAD
I wear lashes just about every day and these are my favourite! When wearing them they look more like you have lash extensions than like you’re wearing falsies! They’re also a breeze to put on!
9. MAC Girls Raver Girl Palette $48 CAD
A beautiful, yet versatile face palette. This palette is highly pigmented and blends like a dream. A must-have for anyone’s makeup bag.
