MAC Makeup Must-Haves

let's take a moment to discuss a fan favorite, reader favorite and all-round favorite: MAC Cosmetics. my sister and i were chatting the other day and she asked me "Is MAC your favorite makeup?" the answer is a little more complicated than a yes or no. 

yes, MAC makes amazing quality makeup with an impressive lineup of products, but only a handful of those products are my MUST-HAVE makeup. the rest is lovely but i will forever insist that any mascara over $10 is over-priced and while MAC makeup is stunningly beautiful, it can also be stunt your wallet.

so here are the products that i can't live without, the ones i buy over & over again, because their quality, their color and their performance vs. price per use is unbeatable.

  • Creme Cup is my new favorite lipstick. the subtle blue/pink tone makes it the perfect nude for anyone - not too orange.
  • Mocha the best blush shade for the most natural blush tone. plum/pink complimentary on all skin tones.
  • Fluidline a long-wearing gel liner that applies easily and goes a long way for the $.
  • Mineralize Skin Finish packs on the highlight with major dimension.
  • Pro Longwear Concealer is genius at concealing. lasts long, blends easily, covers like a dream.
  • Naked Lunch, Carbon, Woodwinked and Shroom make consistent appearances in my lineup.


  1. I love MAC's Mineralized Skin Finishes and I've been purchasing (and repurchasing) Shroom for years! Such great picks! I need to try the Creme Cup lipstick now too!

  2. Is this another attempt to get that blush back from me? Heehee.
