MAC PRO now available online to all!
Yes, this post is worthy of the caps in the headline.
Finally, MAC has made some of its most coveted (and hauled by yours truly) products from their PRO line available online at MACcosmetics.com. These are products and colors not regularly sold outside of MAC PRO stores unless repromoted in special collections or popping up unannounced on the website for sale. Before you run off to the site with credit card in hand, here are a few items I highly recommend purchasing.
This is without a doubt the BLACKEST and most long-lasting gel eyeliner I have ever used. It is a waterproof gel/cream and It lasts through sweat, humidity (yes I have Florida tested it) and applies smooth and precisely. The pigmentation is second to none and no other black gel eyeliner I have tried has come close to how black this is. I personally like using a light line of this along my lashline to use as a ‘guide’ to putting on false eyelashes.
These brightly-colored pencils are very soft and go on smoother than the eye and lip pencils in MAC’s regular retail range. Hi-Def Cyan is truly cyan as in #E0FFFF hex code and the glowing blue color from TRON which looks amazing paired up with a black & silver smokey eye. I like to use the Process Magenta color as a lip liner to amp up pink and purple lipsticks.
Mixing Medium in Shine and Matte
Ever wonder how to get those gorgeous MAC pigments to stick on your lid? Have a fancy to fiddle with finishes? These mixing mediums are great to use to apply and punch up the intensity of MAC pigments, or to use with the eye shadows should you choose to. If you are a pigment hoarder like I am, you need this product in BOTH formulations.
Pigment in Kelly Green and Electric Coral, Eye Shadow in Bottle Green and Blue Calm
MAC pigments serve as wonderful bases in order to amp up your eyeshadow color. Kelly Green is a gorgeous green well-suited to cool skintones, and Electric Coral is just cool enough to make coral eyeshadows like Paradisco and Motif pop. I am very partial to MAC Veluxe Pearl finishes and bright blues so Blue Calm is a must while Bottle Green is a gorgeous dark matte green perfect for Fall/winter.
So those are all of my must haves. Of course the MAC Pro collection has lots of other lipstick colors (Violetta is definitely worth checking out) and items so definitely visit the website to see what goodies tickle your fancy.
