Mini Mac Collection









As Mac is a very popular makeup brand, I thought I would do a lil blog post completely dedicated to the products I own and have tried. Shall we begin?

Studio Fix Fluid NC15 ~ Let's start off with my favourite foundation ever! I was so lucky to get this off of my friend Chloe(thoughtitboughtit.blogspot.co.uk). This beauty has a medium-full coverage, perfect if you ask me, with a fairly thick consistency. The finish is slightly matte but doesn't cling to any dry patches on the skin. NC15 is the lightest shade in the 'cool-toned' range, which is sad for those even paler than myself; luckily, this colour fits my skin tone exactly! 100% recommend to those girls who love a bit of coverage, like myself :-)

Fleur Power Blush ~ For a healthy flush to the cheeks, all you need is this little blush. Personally, I think the shade is very universal so would suit most skin tones - the colour is a mix between a bright peach and muted pink. The pigmentation is incredible; I would definitely recommend tapping excess off after swiping your brush. This is a colour especially suitable for those who love minimalistic/natural makeup.

Woodwinked Eyeshadow ~ This is honestly my favourite eyeshadow of all time. Woodwinked is a soft brown with ridiculous amounts of golden glitters running through, making the finish very metallic. The colour has slight olive-y undertones, so looks incredible on dark eyes. Overall, a really flattering eye shade that can be swiped all over the lid for a very glamourous but quick go-to eye look.

Cranberry Eyeshadow ~ Here comes another great eyeshadow of mine - CRANBERRY. Can we just appreciate how perfect this is for Autumn, I mean seriously?! A fiery red with hints of purple tones and some shimmer; this works beautifully in the crease, in fact pair it with woodwinked all over the lid for a total autumnal look.

Vanilla Pigment ~ The pigments from Mac are insane. Vanilla is a gorgeous off-white colour with gold glitters, making it perfect for inner corner highlighting. This can be a multi-purpose product, as I've read some people use it as a highlight and to your lips have a frosty lip effect (which sounds soooo cool, I really need to give that one a go!) I personally just use it in the inner corner of my eyes to brighten them up and on my brow bone for definition.

Rubenesque Paint Pot ~ I am patiently waiting to buy the melon pigment which completely complements this paint pot. In the meantime, I have been using Trick from the Naked 3 palette to build up the iridescent peach-gold effect. Mega must-have Mac product; it is just so aesthetically pleasing!

Bare Study Paint Pot ~ A neutral light champagne colour with subtle pink shimmers, creating the prettiest pearly sheen on the eyelids. Bare Study is a lovely base, as well as another inner-corner-highligher. I really love to wear this on its own, for those days where you just can't be bothered to apply excessive shadow.

Velvet Teddy Lipstick ~ The Kylie Jenner Colour. This has been all the rave throughout the end of last year and into this coming year. I totally agree with this hype because of the sophisticated matte finish and muted brown tone. A very flattering shade for women of all skin tones. *features in this look*

Lovelorn Lipstick ~ My second ever Mac lippie (I lost my first one - Angel *cries*). This is a lustre finish, which gives the lip an overall glossy look. This candy, blue-toned pink is very moisturizing on the lips and the formulation is super creamy - making it a dream to wear. I cannot stand drying lip products!!! *features in this look*

Lady Danger Lipstick ~ As Mac describes, this is a very 'VIVID BRIGHT CORAL-RED'. The lasting power for this product is well over 5 hours, which is amazing if you ask me. This is my latest MAC purchase and it most definitely has not let me down. All I need to know is a good ol' liner to pair this bad boy with?! Any ideas??

Rebel Lipstick ~ Satin finish lipsticks are my ultimate faves. Matte with a slight sheen :) I am in love with this lipstick and it has to be one of my all time favourites. A sumptuous, deep purple that makes your teeth look insanely white - what more could you ask for? This is also a great one for staying power - it even stains my lips when trying to scrub it off!!! The richness of the colour seriously enhances your lip shape, which is perfect for those who want to achieve fuller, bigger lips. *full review here*

Dervish Lipliner ~ This natural nude can easily redefine your lips and give them a more 'plumpy' aspect. This pinky-mauve colour fits Velvet Teddy to a 'T'. The liner is highly pigmented, so the product glides on the lips instead of nastily tugging.

Thank you so much for reading

Love you all
