MAC Shopping List

As I get ready to fly home for Christmas, (literally counting down the days – it’s 3 in case you were wondering!!) I am very excited for all the festive fun that is in store but before I even think about that, there is one thing that is making me just as excited for the flight home – THE MAC STORE at the airport! And seeing as it is Christmas I am going to buy some lovely MAC pressies from me to me. Here is what is on my MAC shopping wish list:

Lipstick in Pink Pearl Pop
They say: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

I say: This colour looks so beautiful and will be perfect for nights out over the Christmas! I love how long lasting MAC lipsticks are and don’t think I will ever have enough of them.


Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation
They say: A long-wear foundation that gives up to 15 hours of wear in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy, applies smoothly to provide sheer to medium coverage. Even in hot and humid conditions, controls oil to keep skin fresh, natural and flawless. Provides everyday SPF protection.

I say: I have never tried this foundation before but have heard good reviews, extra bonus points that it lasts up to 15 hours, lets hope it lives up to that claim. I am not sure what shade I should go for so will have to do some swatching when I am in store.


Mineralize Concealer
They say: Enriched with minerals and nourishing botanicals, this creamy, easy-to-blend Concealer covers and perfects while moisturizing the skin. Comfortable and longwearing. Provides medium coverage with a natural luminous finish.

I say: Again I am unsure what shade to go for so I will have swatch in store and decide on the best one. I am excited to try this concealer and hoping the coverage is really good.


Melon Pigment
They say: Pigment of highly concentrated loose colour powder that contains ingredients to help it adhere to the skin. Create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect. Does not streak or cake. Easy to blend and long-lasting.

I say: OOOOhhh sparkly, this amazing pigment would create the ultimate night out eye and would look great with brown shades.

Tinted Lipglass in Saint Germain

They say: A unique Lipglass available in our bestselling shades to create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, it’s pigmented, very shiny and for subtle or dramatic colour. Jojoba oil helps soften and condition the lips.

I say: I think St Germain is a gorgeous barbie pink colour and I love the MAC lipglass with its high shine and gloss. This would look great over the top of pale pink or nude lipstick.


Now lets hope the MAC store at the airport is well stocked!


Have you tried any of these MAC lovelies? Would love to hear if you think they are good choices or if you can recommend even better ones, please do!

    I have heard off a few people that the pro long wear foundation isnt anywhere as good as the studio fix foundations. Apparently the pro long wear concealer is the way to go though. Up to you of course! X

    I’ve never tried anything from MAC which is crazy considering how large my make-up collection is!
