What has been your favourite Mac collection to date?
This might be quite odd to some, but my favourite was Neo sci-fi. I loved the colours of the products. The peaches & pinks. It was everything i loved. & the packaging was a bonus too. :) I also loved the BBR collection. As you can tell, i don't just go with the packaging, i actually look more at the colours...as boring as that seems :)
Which Mac collection, in your opinion, do you think was disappointing, if any?

Hello Kitty & Style warriors...Just didn't really like any of it, nothing was "OMG I NEED THAT"
What products do you think Mac are missing?
A good mineral foundation..i thought there version was pretty dire. & better mascaras.

I tag anyone who would like to take part. :)

  1. You should really try the MSF Natural, it looks absolutely beautiful on its own, instead of foundation (perfect for the summer)but also over Studio Sculpt!

    Please try to check out my blog when you can!

  3. I second what Madeline said. I have really dry skin and dont find this a problem (even around my nose..no flakes) Now its "summer" im using it directly ontop of my GOSH primer. When i need more coverage use it over my studio sculpt to set it. It does the same job as a setting powder but is lovely and glowy on its own too. Plus looks cute (packaging sucker). :D

    Id definately give it a go in Light-Medium. I tried this shade it was nice, but a tad too dark. Im a NC15, so would be perfect on you.

    A summer essential i'd say.

  4. You should give the Studio Fix + Foundation powder a try, I have dry, sensitive skin but these are amazing and seriously last SO long. I just use a little to set my tinted moisturizer/concealer ;)
