The MAC Tag

I have recently see this tag floating round the blogsphere recently and honestly I feel like it's made for me, if you've been reading my blog for a while now you'll know I am super obsessed with everything MAC, I just can't get enough of it. My boyfriend always jokes that he's going to buy me a whole MAC store.
It's a fab way to see what people highly rate or absolutely slate when it comes to my favourite make-up brand, I have learned so much from reading other peoples and I hope that this can some way help you. 

Disclaimer: I do not take any responsibility if after this you feel like running out to your nearest MAC store.

How long have you been using Mac?
Honestly it was my mum and dad that first got me into MAC I was probably about 14 when I started using it, I remember that special Christmas morning when I unwrapped the glorious black box from Santa and it's now in my blood, I'm obsessed and can't get enough of it.

What was your first Mac product?
My first Mac product was a lipstick in the shade Candy Yum Yum and to this day it's still a staple product in my kit, I feel like my lipstick collection is incomplete if Candy Yum Yum isn't in it.

What's your all time favourite Mac product?
Oh dear this one is a tough one, it would have to be they're eye shadows or lipsticks but please don't ask me to choose a single favourite shade because it's just impossible for me.

What's your least favourite Mac product?
It would have to be they're mascaras, don't get me wrong I still use Zoom Lash in my kit all the time but they just don't have the same wow factor for me that the other products do.

Do you own a Pro Card?
No, but I am in the process of applying for mine, it's all very exciting.

Your Mac foundation shade?
NW10 but in Summer time when I have a teeny tiny bit more colour it's NW15. Yes I am seriously pale.

Your favourite Mac-Foundation:
Studio Fix Fluid

Eye shadow:
There's too many, please don't make me pick I have over 40 MAC eye shadows and I love and use every single one so I couldn't possibly single one out.

These questions are all so hard, I could pick one all time favourite but  at the moment I find myself reaching for Hue the most. It's the perfect springtime nude.

Lip gloss:
Oyster girl

Strangely enough, I only own 2 pencil liners from MAC. Smolder and Teddy I have both in my personal and professional kit. Thats not including my lip liners but I couldn't name them all.

217, it's the perfect blending brush. It's blending made easy.

Nail Lacquer:
I have tired a few different shades but don't paint my nails enough so never really use them.

Pro Product:
My professional make-up kit is full of MAC Pro products but my favourite would probably be the 15 palette and insert, I absolutely love my palettes and I'm forever starting new palettes, I can't get enough of them

What has been your favourite Mac collection to date?
I honestly couldn't choose one, I loved the Marilyn collection and also love the Rhianna collection just to name a few but there are so many beauty's.

Which Mac collection, in your opinion, do you think was disappointing, if any?
Hello Kitty, Just didn't really like any of it which was really dissapointing for me because as you may or may not know I absolutley LOVE HelloKitty, I can thank my cousin Katie for my on going obsession, she really started me on it. 

What products do you think Mac are missing?
A real WOW factor mascara, get on it MAC.

Honestly by doing this tag I have realised there are so many MAC products I have tried, it's just not acceptable, I have a new mission which is to try the products I have never used. Let the fun begin. 

I tag anyone who would like to take part, it's a Good'n. 


  1. I don't own a whole lot of MAC products but I have to agree, the Studio Sculpt foundation is gorgeous, I love the texture! I really want to try some of the dazzleglasses, they look too pretty!

    1. I own far too many MAC products, I am MAC obsessed would love to work for MAC some day it is the dream. :) Xxx

  2. If you want any help enabling you or adding to your collection, you might want to enter my give away on my blog, along with Lush, Rimmel & Bourjois, it includes 3 MAC Lipsticks (you get to choose the shade for all prizes).

    I think you'd appreciate that ;) I loooove MAC lipsticks so much. While I do have a few single eye shadows, think I'll have to start a palette soon, I have too much envy!

    1. Such a lovely giveaway but i'm weird and do enter them, I'm a real odd ball. :) I have far too many MAC lipsticks for my own good. :P You should definitely start a palette I LOVE mine. :) Was think about doing a MAC eye shadow collection post. :) Xxx
