I love MAC make up! It is amongst my favourite brands and I have just been on a bit of a spending spree, I am like most people I have my favourite items that I always buy but I am trying to be more experimental by trying new products . I thought I would share my new purchases below
MAC makeup sponges
I always use the MAC sponges I find they are good quality and last me ages, I like the ones that you can wash and reuse as I like to keep them clean. I find that they leave my foundation with a smooth finish and are good for correcting any mistakes.
Sponges range from £4.50 – £6.00
Pro Longwear Eye Liner – Colour Black Ice
I have been using this eyeliner for a few years now and I should probably try another, however I really like this one. I find it nice and creamy which makes it easy to apply; it also has a waterproof formula which is smudge proof. I find that it lasts throughout the day but not the 12 hours that is claims, if I am going out in the evening I need to top it up to give my eyes that nice sharp image again. It tends to last me a good few months so I don’t think it’s a bad price at £16.50
Prep and Prime Lip
I haven’t used a lip primer before so this is one of my thinking outside of the box products. It offers a colour free base to wear under your lipstick and helps to moisturise, smooth and refine your lips. I leave this lip primer for a few minutes after applying then once dry apply my lip colour, so far I like it and it creates a semi matte base for my lip colour, it also smells great to!
I read quite a few reviews on this product that suggested that the product has snapped after a few uses however I haven’t had this problem, I think the trick is not to extend the product fully, you only need to extend a few millimetres just enough for what you need to use.
Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
I love MAC finishing powder! And ive been using this for a couple of years now . I usually use the loose transparent powder but I thought I would try the pressed version this time instead. I have to say that once you start using transparent powder you will never step out without it again. I always finish my make up off by putting a dusting of this over my finished face, it has a silky touch and reduces shine. I find the pressed version works just as well, I use a brush to apply and feel that with the pressed powder I can get a thicker layer to finish with, which leaves my skin looking smooth and matte.
Well worth it for £20.50
