MAC Haul

I have purchased a few things from MAC before & I am always happy. However, the closest MAC store is almost 2 hours away & I absolutely hate buying things online without seeing them in person. I made an exception this time, I really wanted MAC makeup for my wedding & took a chance & ordered online. I researched for a 2 full weeks before purchasing & I watched YouTube videos, viewed blogs & googled like crazy! So here's my purchase..
I love the packaging, all black & sleek.
I purchased MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC20, a small bottle of MAC Fix+, MAC Studio Fix Plus Foundation in NC25,Studio Finish Concealer in NC20 & Russian Red Lipstick.
 I never used MAC foundations before but I think I might be in love. The longwear foundation is awesome & you can build your coverage. I have pink undertones so I chose NC which has more of a yellow base so I can even out & reduce pink/red tones. It will last a while, 2 pumps covered my entire face (medium coverage). This was $30.
 I'm sorry, I used a bit of this before I took a picture (I couldn't wait!). This is the Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer. I also got this in NC20, which is just light enough for my under eye circles. I really debated between this & the Pro Longwear Concealer but ultimately this gives better coverage. I'm always worried about under eye circles & puffiness. This was $18.

 Since my wedding colors are black, white & red, I thought MAC Russian Red would be absolutely perfect. I haven't tried this yet but I love the color & it is one of their best sellers. I know I won't be disappointed! This was $15.
 I purchased the smaller size of MAC Fix +, I always hear about it & I'm excited to try it, it was $10. Lastly, I purchased Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I never go anywhere without powder & this can be carried in my purse to keep my face matte. It does come with a puff underneath but I'll use a brush to apply it. This is NC25 which is a little darker but since I'll be tanning again soon, this will match. This was $27.
I am so happy with everything I received & I applied for a MAC Pro Card because I know I want to buy so much more. To be honest, you get what you pay for. MAC is expensive, however, if you do your research you end up with amazing finds. I have a cart full of things & I can't wait to order more. 
Have you tired MAC? What are your favorite purchases?


  1. Great haul! I want to try Russian Red too! It seems to be one of the most beautiful reds. Gotta try!!
