MAC Cosmetics survey

First and foremost I want to thank all the new friends I have that are following! Thank you so much and a "hello again" to those of you from myspace and youtube! And a big thanks to my girl Jen to introducing me to the beauty blog world!

I've seen this survey done by others several years ago. Now I get to it YAY! I thought it was appropriate because I use a lot of MAC. Also because I'm new to this beauty blogging and I want to share what I love from MAC!

How long have you been using MAC?
-Well I've bought lipstick here and there in the early 2000's. I started being on the religious side with MAC around the time when the Barbie-Fafi collection came out.
What was your first MAC product?
-It was either Black Tied eyeshadow or Rainbow lip lacquer
What’s your all time favourite MAC product?
-the brand as a whole I would say the lipsticks. High Tea was a specific lipstick I was loyal to.
What’s your least favourite MAC product?
-Studio Fix Fluid foundation. I have very dry skin and it's way too drying for my skin.
Do you own a Pro Card?

-No. I used to..
Your MAC foundation shade?]
I bounce between NC25-NC30. I'm also Medium
What’s your favourite MAC foundation?
-arrgg that's hard. I like Mineralize spf15 foundation and Studio Sculpt.
-I'm a blush hoarder! I love Margin, Style, and My Highland Honey. Basically anything orangy.
-I'm also a powder hoarder. I like the Mineralize skinfinishes. However I mostly use the Select Sheer pressed or loose.
- JUICED! I love that color and I hate the it's discontinued :( Burnt Orange is the closest which is a pro color. My other favorites would be Motif, Plumage,  Steamy, and Patina
- Ravishing, Siss, Shy girl, and Viva Glam Cyndi. Again basically anything orangy.
-Dreamy, Enchantress, Revealing
-Blacktrack fluidline and Teddy eye kohl
- Oh man that's hard. I love #182 for all skin stuff and the #212 and #217 for eyes
Nail Laquer:
- I've been making my own nail polishes with the pigments lately. The best nail lacquers are always the limited edition ones. I loved Blue India (I think that's the name of it) that came out with the Liberty of London collection.
Pro Product:
- Mixing medium
Comment on the following MAC product; Have you used them? If so, give feedback.
Prep & Prime Skin:
- I love it! Foundation looks so much better with it. 
Full Coverage Foundation:
- I never tried it :)
Studio Sculpt Foundation:
- I love it! It's great for dry skin. The coverage is good but I like to sheer it out with the Mac essential oils.
Face & Body Foundation:
I never tried it :)
Mineralize Satin Finish Foundation:
- This is one I've been using lately. I always have to moisturize the hell out of my face in order for it to look nice and smooth. I do like the Satin finish!
Studio Fix Fluid:
- Waay to matte for my own skin. I think it looks better for people with oily skin. I hate it on me.
Hyper Real Foundation:
I never tried it :)
Select SPF15 Foundation:
- I do love Select. It's a good foundation that give me a nice smooth natural finish.
Studio Tech Foundation:
I never tried it :) However it is one I've been wanting to try on myself because it looks amazing on people.
Studio Fix Powder:
- I love it. I used to use this all the time when I was going youtube tutorials. I love how smooth it makes the skin look. It's also very quick and easy to apply. It looks great on top of the Studio moisture tint.
Studio Stick:
- I've contoured with it which is nice but a never tried it as an all over foundation.
Hyper Real Pressed Foundation:
I never tried it :)
Beauty Powder:
- It depends. Some of them are too pink to be used as a highlighting powder. I do like the more golden colors. 
Sculpt and Shape Powders:
- They're great. However I almost never use it. :|
Loose Blot Powder:
- I LOVE the loose blot powder. I used to have an oily T-zone and I did like the matte finish at one point. I just loved how soft it made your skin look and feel.
Pressed Blot Powder:
- I love using them when I'm doing freelance work becasue they're so compact and easy to use.
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural:
- They make as a good powder to wear on top of any foundation. They also give a nice natural look when it's worn alone.
Mineralize Skinfinish:
- I don't use them much I don't really no why. :|
Bronzing Powder:
- I don't use bronzing powder that often.  :|
Powder Blush:
- I LOVE even more. I love it's long lasting ability and the dewey finish
Mineralize Blush:
- I LOVE also. It's a nice shimmer and glow. I've been using Gentle lately.
Gel Blush:
I never tried it :) I've tried gel blushes in general but not one's from Mac
Cream Colour Base:
-I don't really care for them. 
Studio Sculpt Concealer:
- I love using them on blemishes or any other discoloration that has a dry texture. 
Select Cover Up Concealer:
- I've normally used these to highlight my skin. I'm not too much a fan of the matte finish.
Select Moisturecover Concealer:
- This is one of the better concealers. It's a little more on the sheer side and great for under the eye.
Studio Finish Concealer:
- I used to use this but I find that it's a little too full coverage for my liking. 
Studio Stick:
I never tried it :)
Lip Erase:
- I don't really use it. You can do the same thing with concealer. However it is more moisturizing to lip than a concealer
Tinted Lip Conditioner:
I never tried it :)
- I LOOOOVVVEE!! I pretty much like all the finishes. I'm not too much a fan of the frost lipsticks unless it's a dark color.
- I love! and I have too many!
See Thru Lip Colour:
I never tried it :)
- I love them. Not really as much as I used to. But I still think they're great
Cremesheen Glass:
- I love these too. Partial to Pink is my favorite .
Lip Gelee:
- I do like the glittery ones Mac has been coming out with lately. The other ones are too sheer for my liking.
Lip Pencil:
-Love them!
Solar Bits:
- They're ok. I've only tried it once. I'd rather blend it into something like a foundation rather than using it in it's powder form.
Nail Lacquer:
- Love them!
- I'm not too crazy about these. I just don't like the pencil application of it,
- This are great because they're sheer and smooth. It's also a quick and easy way to keep your shadow from creasing.
Paint Pots:
- I love paint pots because they give a little bit more color intensity than the paints do.
- I LOVE! I have too many! 
- I LOVE!! The colors are gorgeous and I love playing with them by mixing colors together and wetting them! 
- I love these. I like how fine the glitter pieces are.
Eye Kohl:
-Great for easy smokey eyes!
I never tried it :)
Liquid Last Liner:
- The colors are great and the staying power is out of this world. They can be a little on the thick side but I don't care too much.
Lustre Drops:
- Gorgeous. 
False Lashes:
- I only use the one's that are more unique like #44's and #43's
ProLash Mascara:
I never tried it :)
- Don't really care for it much. It's too clumpy.
Plush Lash Mascara:
I never tried it :)
Fibre Rich Lash Mascara:
- I love it. It gives a nice curl and volume without the clumps
Dazzle Lash Mascara:
I never tried it :)
What has been your favourite MAC collection to date?
- Out if the big and largely promoted collections I would say Fafi because I love the color story and everything was gorgeous! Out of the smaller collections I would say that I loved the Cool Heat collection because I love orange and blues together. I love orangy lips and the collection came out with some of the most beautiful blue eyeshadows I own!
Which MAC collection in your opinion do you think was disappointing, if any?
-Hello Kitty and Barbie. I just thought the packaging was prettier than the actual makeup.
What products do you think MAC are missing?
- Geez I don't know. Glittery eyeliners I guess.
