Back to MAC

19 comments
Hey Lovelies,
I finally managed to use up another 6 MAC products, and this week I took my empties back to the MAC counter to exchange them for a free lipstick, so I thought I'd do a little post for you showing you what I've used up and which lipstick I chose. Enjoy!
Back to MAC
MAC Brush Cleanser, 235ml RRP £10.00 (LINK)
I've been using this brush cleanser for years. It does an amazing job at cleaning, disinfecting and conditioning my make up brushes. No matter which other brush cleansers I try, I always go back to MAC's Brush Cleanser. That the empty bottle counts towards your Back to MAC empties is another huge incentive to keep repurchasing it haha.  
MAC Fix+, 100ML RRP £14.50 (LINK)
I think this is one of MAC's most misunderstood products. There's a bit of a myth that Fix+ will make your make up stay on longer, and I've found that it doesn't really do that. However I love using my Fix+ spray to freshen up my make up throughout the day. This fancy water is infused with green tea, chamomile and cucumber, making it great for your skin!
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation, 40ml, RRP £25.00 (LINK)
This is probably my favourite MAC foundation, and I've repurchased it quite a few times already. It's a gel based foundation that gives medium-full coverage and has a dewy finish that looks great in pictures!
MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze, 10g, RRP £20.00 (LINK)
I used this powder to contour and bronze. It blends really well and doesn't look orange which is pretty much what you need from a bronzer.
MAC Studio Careblend Pressed Powder, 10g, RRP £20.00 (LINK)
As the name suggests, MAC's Studio Careblend Pressed Powder is a powder you use to set your make up. It comes in 8 different shades. Even though I enjoyed using this product, I won't be repurchasing it at the moment as I do prefer my MAC Mineralise Skinfinishes or their Studio Fix powder to set my make up.  
MAC Cherish Lipstick, RRP £15.00 (LINK)
MAC describe their Cherish lipstick as a soft muted peachy beige. It has a satin finish. This lipstick was very pigmented and long wearing, but I did find it to be slightly drying on my lips so I am in no hurry to replace it in my collection.
MAC Impassioned Lipstick
Originally I had planned to get Vegas Volt, but then I tried both Vegas Volt and Impassioned at the MAC counter and decided to go with Impassioned. I think MAC's Impassioned is one of those iconic MAC lipsticks everyone should own! It has an amplified finish. Amplifed finsihes are probably my favourites becaucse they are long wearing and very moisturising. I think that Impassioned is the perfect colour for spring and summer which is almost around the corner now. Here's a swatch for all of you who love a good swatch!
MAC Impassioned on lips
So as you can see, Impassioned is a lovely bright pink shade which MAC describe as an amped up fuchsia.
I hope you've enjoyed this post and if you've got any MAC lipstick recommendations for me please leave them in the comments below.
Thanks for reading!

  3. I didn't realise you could include the brush cleanser & fix+! I thought it was just makeup that could be empty! So glad you done this post, otherwise I would be throwing it all in the bin!

  6. The fact that Mac's brush cleaner counts as part of the back to Mac program has been in the back of my mind as a reason for purchasing!

    Impassioned looks great, definitely one to add to my wishlist.
