My Mac Collection

Monday, March 28, 2016

I've seen videos and post of other people's Mac collections and loved it. Just to see what kind of products people go for and discover new products I never thought about. So I decided to do my own Mac Collection post, be warned there are a lot of photos. This is not at all me bragging about what I own, it's just an opportunity for you guys to see what I got and maybe give you some ideas on products you might want. So without further ado...

Base
This is all the things that make your face look flawless and perfect before you contour and highlight and all that jazz. For me this includes; Primers, Base Creams, Foundation, Concealer and Powder. I don't use the Mac primer very often as I find it too shimmery, but I do want to get a few other primers from them to try. I put Strobe Cream in this list as I like to mix it with foundations and primers to create that natural shine and dewy look. The foundations and powders I like to have a selection, from full coverage to medium and matte to dewy, as well as different shades for different times of the year. For concealers and highlighting pens, I keep it pale, usually my skin tone or a shade lighter or darker. Again these concealers range from full coverage to medium and solid to liquid.

Perfecting
This is all your contours, bronzers, highlighters, blush and brows, as well as some lip balm products. Contour really helps give you that defined jaw and cheek line and if done well really makes your face look slimmer, though I don't actually own any Mac contour powders. Bronzer is a must if you don't contour, as it will bring back the color into your face and make you look a little more 3 dimensional. Highlighters are a must, literally I cannot live without a highlight. These highlights range from very light and natural to a little more in your face. To add that little bit of color to the face, blush is needed. I own 3 Mac blushes and 2 of them do look slightly similar though one is a shimmer blush and the other is a matte blush, they both look beautiful on. Brows, this is a must for me as I have very wild brows which look a little sparse, so they need filling in. Lip balms are a strange one, but they are great at this stage. Apply them here and get the full effect of the products, the time allows the product to soak into the lips making them feel more hydrated and reducing cracked lips.

Eyes
Not much to really say, this section really consists of eye shadows and palettes, mascara, paint pots, pigments, glitter and eye liner. I don't own any of the Mac Lashes as I just find other affordable brands just as good. Eye shadows, it can range from warm neutrals to cool colors and a few bolder shades. Mascara, I actually only own two and they are really good at giving you that long lash look. Eye liner it is usually the kohl pencil in a two shades, white and brown. I love the pigments and they are literally my life when it comes to the eyes, I also own one glitter though I find it way to chunky so haven't used it. (The glitter and one of the pigments are missing from the photos as I have seem to miss places them)

Lips
This is the part I am obsessed with, and my look always finishes with the lips. In this section it is all about the lip liner, lipstick and lip glass. I own 6 lip pencils all in different shades, 4 lip glasses, as they were the limited edition Viva Glam range and I own 25 lipsticks. Lipsticks are one of those products from Mac that you have to get, when ever I order Mac online I always have to get at least one lipstick, it is just my weakness. I have a variety of shades from nudes to browns to pinks to reds to bolds to darks. They all vary from one another and they have different consistencies thought I am partial to the mattes. My favorites are Whirl, Russian Red, Viva Glam Ariana, Creme Cup and Sunny Seoul.

And that's it! I hoped you enjoyed seeing my Mac collection. I wouldn't say you needed all of these products, or that you need any, this is a large collection and I don't use this stuff all the time, some lipsticks I have only ever swatched. So, it is a lot of money for things you may not use, I'm a hoarder so I can't help but buy more. I love the packaging and am a sucker for lipsticks, but again I would recommend the Mineralize Skin Finishes as they are amazing and a lipstick.

Stay Gorgeous
