My MAC Must Haves

My 5 MAC Must Haves

Hey Everyone! This post is all about my top 5 MAC Must Haves!

MAC is a huge worldwide brand with so many amazing products – from skincare to lashes, from shadows to lipglosses!

I have chosen these five particular products as they are the ones I have either repurchased or intend to repurchase.

First up: MAC Fix+

This one is most definitely a re-purchase and one I will continue to! I use this every single day when I am wearing makeup. It is described as a makeup setting spray but I would say it’s more of a finishing spray. Once I have applied all my base and powder products I give a quick spritz of Fix+ all over my face. It doesn’t necessarily make my makeup last longer, I just like how my makeup looks after applying it. Its also great for giving a bit of a refresh to your makeup during the day.  Top Tip: use Fix+ when applying glittery eye shadows to make them pop more on the eye – just give your brush a quick spray before dipping into your eyeshadow!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

If you are looking for a hardworking concealer to hide dark circles then this is the one! I bought this after reading tons of reviews online and I will 100% be repurchasing. You actually only need the tiniest amount for excellent coverage. It is so long lasting and doesn’t crease at all on me once I use a little under eye setting powder. You do need to get colour matched for this one as the shades can run very pale even on the lightest skintones.

MAC Strobe Cream

Ok this is my hero product! I absolutely love strobe cream and use it as my primer every day. Strobe cream just gives your skin a gorgeous glow, that lit from within effect that we all crave. It is also a bit of a multi-tasker – you can mix a little into your foundation for some extra glowiness :). You can of course just wear it on its own when you haven’t got time for makeup but want your skin to look awake. I usually buy the original version in the travel size as it is only €10 and lasts agesssssss! MAC released different colour variants of Strobe Cream earlier this year, I will leave the link below so you can see the full range.

MAC Prep and Prime Lip

I have actually lost count of the number of times I have repurchased this one! Prep and Prime Lip is exactly as it says on the tin – a primer for your lips. Another product I cannot be without and use every day. It is a balm type product that you apply before your lipstick or gloss. It leaves a soft film on the lips creating a blank canvas as such for whatever you apply over it. Prep and Prime Lip is meant to pro long the wear time though I cannot confirm this as I mostly wear gloss or glossy lipsticks that wear off quite quickly anyway. Its great as a base for matte lipsticks as it makes them glide onto the lips but still set as matte as they are meant to be.

Finally: MAC Mineralize Skinfinsh Soft and Gentle

This one is a MAC cult product! I have included it in my top highlighters post which you can find here. Soft and Gentle is a gorgeous pink champagne coloured highlighter. I like to apply it to the high points of my face and across my décolletage and shoulders if wearing a sleeveless top/dress. Top tip: If you really want that extra pop spritz some Fix+ onto a small blending brush before dipping into soft and gentle and apply to your cheekbones 😉


You can purchase all of these products from Brown Thomas and Bt2 or online here and the full range of Strobe Cream can be found here

Have you tried any of these products or do you have your own MAC Must Haves?

  1. I love the fix+. I don’t think it does much in the way of setting your face but I like to spray it on my brushes/blenders for better application and it makes my face feel nice after spraying
