    What are yours?

    I am thinking about going to MAC to get my make-up done because I need new stuff....I wear Clinique, but am ready to try something else.

    Even if my friends derm says its bad for the skin.

      I only wear their powder and I recently tried their lipstick (it's free if you return 6 powder containers for them to recycle). I like it...

      I am too cheap to convert everything else...although my cheap mascara is really starting to annoy me because it's clumping...so I might try mascara too??

        I don't wear makeup now but in high school I used to swear by MAC lipliners.....I think my fav color was spice? It's very neutral. I know we have some MAC girls here who can help you out.

          I don't use MAC often since I break out, but its great coverage and lasts quite a while (since its stage make-up). I love their eye shadows and brushes the best, but you can't go wrong with any of their products.

            Yeah I got an email from a friend that said friends don't let friends wear MAC. I am not sure about the eyeshadows but I have been told that the foundation is not good for your skin. I recently started using Bare Escentuals for my face and I love it. MAC does have great shadows still.

                swish or Phloof!
                vanilla


                lipgloss:
                nymphette

                  spice is always a good neutral liner (most people can wear it)

                  and if you are going soon, and fall in love with some colors, check out the palettes too, a single eyeshados sells for $14, and you get a palette with 5 e/s for $36..

                  depending where you are going you can also check out the pigments... if you founf one in a nice neutral or pink, they are great, you can use them for eyeshadow, wet as a lipliner or eyeliner, or mix them with clear gloss for a lipgloss....

                      I haven't had any problem with my skin since I started wearing MAC (I love Bare Escentals too). I use the Studo Fix, and the Primer underneath ... and I love the Paints as a base color for your eyes (then your eyeshadow doesn't come off all day long). I basically use the whole gamut ... minus mascara and eye liner ... I use less expensive versions of those because they work just as well for me. Oh, and blush ... Peaches matches every skin tone!!
