A Little MAC Haul

A Little MAC Haul

Yesterday I popped along to MAC Silverburn (easily the best customer service I've had in the UK in terms of shopping at MAC - I'm sure you know how it is?) and purchased a few things I didn't really need and yet I wanted. In my defence, it has been a while since I splurged anywhere let alone MAC and sometimes a gal needs to treat herself...right?

I really only wanted to stop by MAC to try their newest foundation MAC Studio Waterweight SPF30 Foundation (£25.50). On first test it was love, an utterly weightless liquid that quickly absorbs into the skin producing medium, almost matte coverage. Obviously I only purchased this yesterday and have yet to fully test it out but so far I would deem it to be the perfect foundation for anyone who hates the feeling of product on their face. As a side note do check your bottle before leaving the store, annoyingly my pipette/dropper tool had snapped off inside and I will have to return it - luckily my sister also bought a bottle, albeit a different shade so I could share a quick photo or two. It may have been a freak incident, who knows but do check and save yourself a return journey.

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that MAC Lip Liners (£12.50) have a hold over me? I can't seem to go into MAC and not purchase at least one shade. It's becoming a problem. This time I purchased three nude hues that I have been meaning to try for what seems like forever: MAC Stripdown, MAC Subculture and MAC Boldly Bare. I'm hoping one will be my perfect light, go to nude - we shall see. I also purchased a MAC duo pencil sharpener (£5), simply because I have no idea where my other is and some of my liners are past the point of being blunt. As far as tools go, it is somewhat a necessity for me and I rather like that the design has two holes so you can also sharpen bigger, chunkier pencils too.

Lastly I decided to finally purchase MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist (£16), a shade that has taunted me for a while. This deep, slightly metallic, golden tinged chocolate brown is not only the perfect replacement for my now dried out MAC Éclair Paint Pot but the idea gentle smoky eye product. If you have blue or green eyes you need this.

I will of course be reviewing the above products in due course, do let me know if any of the above products catch your eye and on a separate note I am keen to know what your favourite MAC Paint Pot shade is?

  2. Unfortunately, my experience with MAC hasn't been the best so far, but I'm pretty sure it's got to do with the store I always went to (i.e. the one closest to where I live). Not once have they matched me to the right colour, nor have they given me proper advice on which foundation/concealer to go for, so I really don't like their face products... that paint pot, however, looks beautiful! :)

  3. I would love to wear soft ochre paint pot but it's too yellow so I use the maybe line matte cream one or Mac paints in bare canvas and still life. Must have gone through five tubes of each, love them.

  4. The lip liners look pretty convincing, are they dry on the lips though? xx

  5. The paint pot in constructivist looks amazing. Too bad I have brown eyes, so it will never look as good on me :(

  6. MAC Subculture is one of my favourite lipliners ever! It works so well with almost any lighter shade of lipstick. Can't wait to try their new foundation! :)

  7. I haven't stopped using Subculture since I bought it! I've had Naked for ages but Subculture is already shorter than it haha. I'm tempted by that foundation though Adrienne!

  8. Wow, the nude lip liners are calling me with their diversity! I just remember trying Spice in the 90's and it was a bit dark for me, must admit I haven't tried any others! The paint pot looks really pretty too.

  9. Oh those lip liners look incredible. Can I ask, which lipsticks do you use with them if any? Or do you just use lip liners on their own?
    Btw. love your blog :)

  10. I'm SO overdue a little splurge in MAC myself, and I think those lipliners will have to make their way onto my list! I'm also looking forward to hearing what you think of the foundation :)

  14. I'm really interested in trying that new foundation if it's is as weightless as everyone has been saying! I like Mac's Painterly Paint Pot, I think it's a great shade for under any eye look! x

  15. I'm seeing a lot of brands pushing dropper foundations lately - CoverFX, Lancome, MAC, etc. I'll have to try one. Also never tried the paintpots either!

  16. I was sooooo close to buying this foundation today in the Dundee MAC! I hate buying foundation, but this one just looked beautiful The aplicator does scare me though.. I just dont get it. It's bound to end up knocked over and spilled (probably over my white bedspread)

  18. I'm back in Glasgow after being home for the summer and have yet to visit Silverburn's MAC! very intriguing, always felt Buchanan St's was just a tiddy bit intimidating haha x

  19. I love the Mac pencils. I have Subculture and Stripdown and think I need to get Boldly Bare now too ;)

  20. I love Constructivist, although I rarely wear it. I prefer Groundwork and have made a huge dent on it. Such a great everyday shade. Boldly Bare and Stripdown are on my wishlist. x
