MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick
I was digging through my MAC favorites this morning when I remembered a question asked by reader Sheila Z in the comments yesterday.
“Karen, Iâ€™ll be getting my makeup done this saturday at MAC for my brother-in-lawâ€™s engagement party. Part of the process requires that I buy at least 5 items. What are the top 5 you recommend?”
— Sheila Z
Pardon me for this, but right now I feel Ready For The World! “Oh, oh, oh, oh, Sheila!”
(Please tell me you’re familiar with that song.)
With that out of the way, let’s get back to beauty. You’re going to have such a blast at the MAC counter on Saturday. For what it’s worth, here are my five (current) MAC must-haves.
I wield this multi-tasking goat hair fiber brush Every. Single. Day. It has its way with both cream and powder products, and I use it for everything from loose pigments to under-eye concealer.
This black gel liner stays put no matter what! I’ve shed a million tears with this stuff on, and it doesn’t budge for nothin’.
I really fancy this miracle working liquid concealer. Not only does it cover my dark circles well with its water-resistant formula, but it lasts all day long without fading, too. My one caveat? — it has a tricky pump.
If you like the look of browns with orange undertones, this matte shadow could be your new best friend. I wear it in the crease with smokey looks to give my eyes depth and dimension.
LOVE this shimmery neutral pink! I think it looks great on almost everyone, and 100% of the proceeds go to support men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.
I also asked the gals on Twitter what their MAC must-haves are, and here’s what they had to say:
I hope this helps, Sheila! Have a great time at the party!
Ladies, how about you? What are your top five MAC must-haves?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I know this is off topic, but how cute is this animation from Chanel? This is what my makeup dreams look like.
