I am always on the hunt for suggestions of beauty items to lust after. Aren't we all? There's something actually really enjoyable about obsessing over a product and then finally getting it for yourself an loving it. I know how much of a good feeling that is and I also love recommending products to other people and then finding out they adored them; what can I say, I'm a giver. MAC is unsurprisingly one of the most popular makeup brands in the world, and although some items can be a little on the pricey side, I've always found that the quality is equal to and sometimes surpassing the price. Of course I have products from MAC that I use more than others, and like everyone I have a few lipsticks that I don't tend to reach for too often, but I can honestly say I've never been bitterly disappointed by the quality of a MAC item. So, I wanted to share with you the two MAC products that I think everyone in the world should have in their makeup collection because, really and truly, these deserve a place in your wishlist home.

-Folie Eyeshadow-

You absolutely cannot beat a MAC eye shadow. Before I tried one from them, I was really hesitant to bother as they are expensive and I didn't really know how they would compare to others on the market. The first eye shadow I ever bought from MAC was Folie, and from the first time I used it to this day, it has been one of my favourite staple eye shadow colours. Folie is a burgundy/dark red shade and is seriously one that should be in everyone's makeup collection. It's one of those staple shades that is perfect for a smoldering lid colour or for a transition shade in the crease of your eye for an edgier smokey eye in place of the typical black. 

Aside from the gorgeous colour, my favourite thing about this eye shadow is the formula. I definitely wish all of my eye shadows had the same formula to them as they are just simply gorgeous. This is a satin shade, it really feels like velvet when applied and the pigmentation is so impressive, I really can find no faults with this eye shadow. Like I said, the main thing for me is the formula to this shadow and I've never ever been disappointed with the quality of any of the MAC eye shadows I've ever tried, so even if you aren't loving Folie, I'd still suggest venturing into MAC's vast eye shadow collection because they are honestly worth every penny.

-Soft and Gentle-

This was a very easy choice to talk about, because this is the product that seriously shocked me with its beauty the first time I used it and still continues to amaze me now. I bought this in a massive haul and among all the other products I'd purchased, I wasn't particularly excited about Soft and Gentle. I'd heard endless things about it but I did think it was going to be a big over hype, but this is hands down one of the best highlighters I've ever had. 

Although I do like to pile this on and create a very obvious highlight the majority of the time, Soft and Gentle can also create a gorgeous natural glow, not only an obvious streak of highlight. I think the finish of this product (like most!) depends on the brush you use and how much product you pick up but I know some highlighters I have are just not buildable at all, whereas Soft and Gentle is so buildable which makes it a versatile product for whatever kind of look you want to create. 

I hope this inspires your shopping, and if it does and you do decided to buy these two beauties: no need to thank me.



  1. I've never heard of Folie before, and I've never tried a MAC eyeshadow before. I think both of these need to change because it looks stunning!
