10 Holy Grail MAC Products You Need In Your Makeup Bag

Few beauty brands are quite so iconic as MAC, which manages to cover the classics and staples as well as nailing current and upcoming trends with its extensive product range. If you’re as beauty obsessed as we are then you’ve probably already heard of icons like Ruby Woo lipstick and Studio Fix Foundation, but if you’ve yet to find your favourites, we’ve rounded up the holy grail MAC products that you really don’t want to miss out on.  

MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy

Ever since Kylie Jenner wore Velvet Teddy, this ‘my lips but better’ nude has been a constant sell-out. A deep-toned pink-nude which suits every skin tone , it’s the perfect finishing touch to a no-makeup makeup look. 

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+

Whether you use it under makeup, over makeup, or without makeup, this refreshing face mist has instant brightening and hydrating benefits – thanks to its vitamin-infused formula. Formulated to improve the wear and longevity of makeup, Prep + Prime Fix+ perfect for keeping a full face in place. 

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo

If you’re looking for a true red lipstick, Ruby Woo is the one. Bright and cool-toned with an intense pigment payoff and a vintage-esque matte finish, it’s easy to see why this eye-catching lip colour is considered such a classic. 

MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF15 Foundation

Available in over 60 shades, Studio Fix is the ultimate long-wear foundation – offering light (but buildable) coverage that resists sweat, oil, and anything else that life throws at it to stick around for up to 24 hours. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish

Setting powder might not seem like the kind of product worth getting excited about, but MAC’s Mineralise Skinfinish is no ordinary setting powder. Slow-baked with muted pearl pigments to give skin a lit-from-within glow, this weightless formula sets makeup without compromising on a natural finish.  

MAC Strobe Cream

A makeup artist essential, MAC Strobe Cream is a skincare-makeup hybrid that perfectly preps skin for makeup. Delivering the ingredient benefits of a moisturiser alongside the luminosity of a highlighter, expect radiant, dewy skin that both looks and feels more hydrated. 

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

This impressively long-lasting concealer packs a punch of pigment, but is lightweight and blendable, lending its hand to concealing everything from dark circles to breakouts. The Pro Longwear formula melts easily into skin so it’s great for using both under and over foundation. 

MAC Lip Pencil in Spice

MACs lip pencils are another MUA staple – you’ll be hard pressed to find a kit without one. Of the 30+ shades available, Spice is a universal favourite – a pink-toned cinnamon brown which is perfect for defining the Cupid’s Bow. 

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundwork

We love a multitasking product! MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pots can be used as eye primers (to preserve the lifespan and boost pigment in powders) or on their own as cream eyeshadows. Groundwork works well as the base for a smoky eye, but also looks great worn alone for subtle definition.
