Buying the Essentials at MAC Cosmetics


MAC girls be like, I need every new collection.  That was me way back when but you know I have these kids and these responsibilities and too much makeup so I had to cut some of that splurging out.  Oh and side note, don’t you’ll hate that these new collections sell out of the “hot” items so fast, I mean before we can even log on to see the release they are sold out?  Well I got sick of that too so now I stick to my favorites and I throw in a bit of newness every now and then.


MAC Haul featuring Skincare, Highlighters and Concealer


In my latest mini haul, I replenished some of my favorite MAC items and I got one of their new highlighters because I’m always addicted to the glow!


MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

MAC Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

This is one of my favorite skincare items because it’s relatively inexpensive and it exfoliates my dry skin without leaving it feeling stripped.   I love to keep it on my skin for about 5-7 minutes to create a little makeshift face mask.  This is one of those products that has always worked for me and my skin so I’m all about the repurchase.

MAC Fix plus

MAC Prep + Prime Fix +

Is my jam!  This is one of those products that I will always buy and always rave about!  I needed this replenishment badly!  I love applying this before my foundation for that extra little bit of moisture and I love to apply this after my powders to alleviate that overly powdered look.  This is also great if you want to use the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural alone, you just wet your brush with this and swirl it in the MSFN and it creates a really great effect on the skin and increases the coverage without leaving  you powdery.

MAC Concealer Palette in Dark

MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette in Medium Deep

Throw it in the bag!  Love this palette.  I use it all the time and it’s a staple in my pro kit.  On myself I like to correct my dark circles with the Burnt Coral shade and I like to mix and match my concealer colors.  I also love that it comes with the NW43 concealer shade because it is a really good natural highlight color for me.  This formula seems to be a little thinner than the regular Studio Finish Concealer but it blends really easily and covers very well.

MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter in Peach Lustre

MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Peach Lustre

Listen, this little highlighter pen is my go to when I’m being lazy with the makeup.  It blends like a dream, is the perfect consistency to cover but not look like makeup.  It layers well under foundation and concealer and it covers up my dark circles and hyperpigmentation too.  I love using this when I’m on vacation especially because I can pack this and some concealer and be set when I don’t want to do foundation.

MAC Shaft of Gold Highlighter

MAC Extra Dimension Highlighter in Shaft of Gold

Extra Dimension Highlighters are some of MACs best formulas.  They are silky/creamy and will give you that glow!  I purchased one for myself and one for a friend.  This highlighter is great because it gives that glow without the glitter.  I wish this was a permanent shade because it would definitely go on my repurchase list.
