Make Me Up Mia: A Lifestyle & Beauty Blog: Dear MAC, I love you.

Dear MAC, I love you.

If you've been following me long enough, you know I love a good mix of high end and drugstore beauty products. When it comes to higher end makeup, you can't go wrong with MAC or Benefit in my eyes.

Today, I'm sharing my favorite MAC products. Theses are all the products I have either repurchased or will be repurchasing. 
{one} Eye Kohl in Teddy- This is not just a brown liner, it's gorgeous and has a slight shimmer to it. It really makes my green eyes pop!

{two} Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly- I love layering this on top of an eye primer, it creates a perfect canvas for your eyeshadow. It definitely has staying power too.

{three} Pro Longwear Concealer- After seeing all of my YouTube gurus rave about it, I finally decided to try it. Never going back, best under eye concealer EVER.

{four and five} Eyeshadows in Satin Taupe & Sable- I'm now on my 2nd package of both of these, they are 2 gorgeous colors ladies. I love my browns and neutrals! Oh, and I read Kyle Richards (RHOBH) loves Satin Taupe too ;) 

{six} Lipstick in Midimauve- I'm not sure what made me go for this color a while back, but I'm so glad I did. This is my perfect neutral mauve shade, that I can wear all year around. I love it. I talked about it here in my lip love post.

Do you have a favorite Mac product? What is 1 of your favorite high end brands?

  1. I really want the paint pot in Painterly too. I don't own too much MAC stuff but really want to try more. I think I'm going to splurge on a lipstick soon to treat myself after all the stress I've been under! Great post Mia!

  6. I need to try out more MAC products because I love every single one that I have! My favorite has to be their prep & prime highlight! It has lasted forever + it does a really good job adding a little lightening under the eyes!

  7. MAC eye shadows and lipsticks are some of my favorites - they just stay on so well!! I also love their give back program to get free lip gloss or eye shadow!! I have been faithful to them for 10+ years when it comes to my pressed powder foundation and will be forever lol

  8. I'm with you on Mac Pro Longwear Concealer - that stuff is just amazing! It's my holy grail of under eye concealers. I even used it on my honeymoon as a foundation when we were going out to a fancy dinner on our last night. You know how much I love my MAC lipsticks, too.

  9. I never seem to make it over to MAC. They always seems so intimidating for some reason. ha. Thanks for all the recommendations, though. Ill have to test a few of the shadows out.

  10. I totally have a love affair with MAC! They always have the best color eye shadows and their brushes are amazing. I totally love their lipsticks and glosses too....

  11. For some reason, I've never really tried any MAC products! Probably because that would require a second stop after Sephora and by that point I have no money left, haha! I do want to try the Teddy eyeliner though and of course more of their lipsticks. I'd say right now my favorite brand is Bare Minerals!

  12. Ugh I love Mac too!! I use to always wear teddy liner! I almost forgot about that color! I need to go back to it ASAP!

  13. i have only tried a couple MAC products and I think I made myself hate them for fear of loving them and their expensiveness. they are so much cheaper here than home, crazy though.

  14. You are seriously my makeup go-to gal, Mia! I have actually never bought any MAC products but I need to :) Thanks for sharing!

  15. I've been a MAC fan since college. They do me no wrong! I love how long the products last. Such great quality. I swear by their plush lash and love their blush in fleur power and pinch me. Also use their concealer, studio fix foundation/powder, and the sheer select powder. don't even get me started on their eyeshadow bc I have a million. I always go for the neutrals, champagnes, and bronzes.

  16. I need that under eye concealer I keep hearing how great it is!

  17. I love MAC so much - I forget that I'm a public school teacher and should probably stop buying it, but I'm obsessed (and NARS/Bobbi Brown). I have about 6 of the Plush Lash mascaras - I never want to run out of it! It's my absolute favorite mascara for natural, but full lashes.

  18. I have never used Mac products, but I know I need to try them out!

  19. As a beauty junkie... I can't believe I'm admitting that I have NEVER tried a MAC product. lol Ever! lol

  20. MAC products remind me of my mom - is what she always wore when I grew up :)

  21. I love MAC eyeshadows and brushes, but I've never tried anything from their face lines - I'm always so nervous they'll break me out. Satin Taupe is one of my all time favourites! Add a bit of Nylon in the inner corner and it makes the perfect midtone smokey eye that doesn't make my eyes look tiny.

  22. There is a MAC across the street from my job but I try not to go in because I buy EVERYTHING, lol! Occasionally I just go on an all out spree! I love it there!

  23. I'm gonna have to look up that concealer. I've got some dark circles under my eyes and always looking for the perfect concealer!

  24. MAC was my first highend love (bought my first product there a decade ago) and continues to be my fave. I love their lipsticks (especially Shy Girl) and Satin Taupe is one of my fave shadows too!

  25. The MAC eye shadows are some of my very favorite. The formulation is just too good!

  26. I love the Prep & Prime Transparent Finishing Powder from Mac because it's incredibly subtle and light, it can be used under or over the foundation. I love using it after my under eye concealer and it won't get cakey! I really love the brands Tom Ford and Nars :) xoxox Alessia

  27. Considering my stupid cat took my Clinique All About Eyes concealer and has hidden it indefinitely, I'm thinking some MAC is in order. Love it when you hear someone say "I'll never use anything else" - sold!

  28. oh must try their concealer! Love MAC

    ReplyDelete
  29. I spy so many of my favorites here! MAC has some seriously great permanent products (the LE seems to be hit and miss, so I try to ignore all the hype). The Pro Longwear Concealer is AWESOME! I'll have to try Teddy... anytime someone says "it makes my green eyes pop", I'm pretty much sold. :)

  30. I just recently got hip to MAC. I never used to treat myself to expensive makeup. I use the face powder and blush - I love them both!

  31. I love MAC's Prolongwear concealer! It's amazing! I actually don't own any of their shadows....what?!?...I know, shame on me! But I want to definitely start a MAC palette. Their blushes are pretty amazing too!
