Ladies, let’s all admit that MAC holds a special place in our hearts. Treating ourselves to a gorgeous lipstick or eyeshadow from MAC is enough to brighten up our whole week! Call it the Mecca of makeup! - and though MAC products don’t come cheap, we all just can’t get enough of them! So we thought we’d revamp your makeup pouch with a list of the best MAC products that are worth the splurge. See if whatever you’ve been eyeing made it to our must-buy list, you MAC junkie!
1. Studio Face and Body Foundation
Studio Fix and and Matchmaster are amazing MAC foundations, but not enough is said about this one! It is amazing at being lightweight and thus leaving you with a dewy finish. It’s designed to be used anywhere on your body, so make use of it with a low-backed outfit or on your décolletage for even, flawless skin. It’s great for your face too - it blends like a dream, is buildable and doesn’t look cakey.
Price: Rs. 1,800. Available in 13 shades.
2. Prep + Prime Fix Finishing Mist
Spritz this on your face as a setting spray to lock your makeup in place and to ensure that it won’t budge for long hours, while also preventing your look from appearing too cakey or made-up. When used as a primer before applying your makeup, it gives you a smooth, flawless foundation application and a more natural finish.
Price: Rs. 1,500
Fluidline is an awesome pot of eyeliner liquid to help you make the transition from amateur to pro, we swear! Even people with least experience with using eyeliners will be able to nail those flicks with this liner that glides on smoothly and will stay on till you take it off.
These days, it is all about using the highlighting trend to make your skin look fresh and glowy. Which is why this shimmery pressed powder is a must-try! Use a brush to sweep it down the bridge of your nose, along your cheekbones, your brow bones, temples, and chin.
Price: Rs. 2,130.Available in 8 shades.
5. Eye Shadow
MAC eyeshadows are super popular for being richly pigmented, bold, long-lasting and just so fun! They come in electric colours that encourage you to experiment as well as in neutral shades to give you a polished finish. The best part? They stay on forever!
Price: Rs. 1,065. Available in 119 shades
6. Matte Lipsticks
I’m yet to meet a girl who isn’t extremely partial to MAC lipsticks. Since we can’t include ALL their lipsticks in this list, I’ve picked their matte lipsticks mainly because they include most of their best-selling shades. Ruby Woo, Girl About Town, Russian Red, Impassioned, Flat Out Fabulous, Chatterbox – we want them all! We really can’t do without our favourite little black tubes.
Even though it may seem too expensive for just a brush, but MAC brushes are awesome! They are totally worth the investment and will last you even for a decade if you wash them regularly. All their brushes are great, but the 217 Blending Brush made it to the list because it’s so versatile. Perfect for blending eyeshadow in the crease, for smoothening the concealer, for applying any powders or creams and even for helping contour - it will always be there for you!
Price: Rs. 1, 750
8. Eye Kohl
This eyeliner pencil works super smooth and soft - which is great, especially for busy mornings. It lasts all day and is fantastic for smudging to sex up your look with a smokey effect. It is available in a range of colours, and you can also get your hands on the white! Apply it on your lower waterline to instantly make your eyes look bigger and refreshed.
Price: Rs. 1,100. Available in 9 shades.
9. Strobe Cream
You’ll never have to worry about dull skin again with this secret weapon in your stash. This hydrating, luminizing lotion will help you look radiant and perfect for days when you feel less than stellar. A little goes a long way - so the tube should last you for a while.
Women everywhere can’t dream of stepping out without this compact in their purse. Available in over 40 shades, you can find your skin twin and use it for quick touch-ups and to keep that horrid oily sheen at bay.
Price: Rs. 1,800. Available in 46 shades.
Of course, there are plenty of other awesome products to buy at MAC, but here we’ve tried to share with you only the comparatively more in-the-budget options! Have fun trying them!
