Must Have MAC Products

Most people I know love a bit of MAC makeup but some are not quite sure where to start in terms of what to buy as MAC have such a huge range so I thought I would share with you what my top 6 recommended products are.
MAC Blusher
These blushers come in various different finishes
Mineralise- a sheer, lightweight blusher
Pro Longwear- a highly pigmented lightweight blusher
Powder- a buildable powder for all over the face
Casual Colour- a versatile creamy product for lips and cheeks
Cream Colour Base- a creamy formula that gives a dewy finish
Cremeblend- a medium coverage buildable blusher
They offer such a huge colour range that will wanting you want them all! One of my favourites is Dolly Mix, pictured below. It is a beautiful powder which is highly pigmented perfect for spring/summer, it is quite bright but easy to blend and tone down.

MAC Lipstick
My all time favourite product from MAC, they have such a huge range of colours, I get particularly excited when they have limited edition ranges out! My favourite finish has to be matte for its long lasting highly pigmented quality.
Matte- Long lasting, matte finish. This lipstick lasts through lunch and numerous cups of tea!
Frost-A shimmery finish that is medium lasting.
Satin- Long wearing, and opaque with a shiny finish. 
Retro Matte- A long lasting super matte lipstick that can be drying so make sure you apply a lip balm beforehand.
Cremesheen- Not the most long lasting but they are really creamy and shiny that give a good colour pay off.
Amplified- Good pigmentation with a moisturising feel.
Glaze- Sheer with a glossy finish that isn't long wearing.
Lustre- Very similar to Glaze, but more opaque.
