The incredible variety of products available from MAC Cosmetics can be pretty overwhelming. Christa from Perilously Pale shares her Top 10 MAC Products that she can’t live without in both her professional kit, as well as for personal use. Do you share some of her favorites?
My fellow Beauty Council bloggers and I are giving away 17 MAC lipsticks to ONE winner. This is a worldwide giveaway. EPIC. Have a look at the shades we chose, and then make sure you enter the Rafflecopter giveaway. Good luck!
It’s time to de-stash again! Here’s what you should know: this is all stuff that’s been purchased/swapped by me. I would never ever try to swap or sell anything that was sent from pr, or a brand sample etc. I have more integrity than that. If you know me from my blog, you already know that. 😉
I will leave the sanitizing up to you. Items are from a smoke free home, kept in a cool, dark closet so I don’t feel like such a
hoarder makeup junkie. I have cats but they do not play in my makeup or even get near it. Unless I use them as props for a blog post. Anyways.
I live in the US and for now, shipping is only within the US. I am SO sorry to my amazing and beautiful international friends, but shipping a big box overseas is expensive, and stressful. (OMG what if it gets lost?! Or customs opens and plays in it??)
Some of the items are new, most have been swatched OR used 1-2 times. There are a few items that have less product in them but I will clearly state it in the listing. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
If you are interested in an item, please leave me a comment down below (or email me email@example.com) and I will send you my paypal address or invoice you (no e-checks please). Payment must be made within a day. I’ve run into problems with holding makeup items in blog sales past, so I can’t do that anymore.
Now, onto the fun stuff! I have grouped the items together and will be selling most of them as a lot. This makes it a great value for you, and easier for me! I will, in most cases, ship in a priority mail flat rate box. I pack carefully and use loads of bubble wrap.

Concealers are one makeup item I absolutely cannot live without!! I’m going to share my top 5 concealers with you, but that doesn’t mean I am stopping my search for the next best thing! 😉
Hard Candy Glamoflauge provides some seriously heavy-duty coverage. It’s thick and very pigmented, and will last all day. I use this to cover acne scarring and a few areas that are sun damaged on my cheeks. Personally, this is too thick to use under my eyes. It gets cakey and creases. If you have tried Make Up Forever’s full coverage concealer, this is a great alternative for a much lower price.
Laura Geller the Real Deal Concealer provides even more coverage! This is the most concentrated, pigmented concealer I’ve ever tried. You need only the tiniest drop. It’s somewhat of a dry consistency, and this doesn’t work under my eyes either. It’s great for heavy-duty coverage on acne, scars and discoloration.
MAC ProLongwear concealer is probably the best concealer out there, in my opinion! It’s really versatile. It’s a fairly thin consistency, but it’s packed with pigment. It covers really well even though it feels nice and light! It will last all day without budging or fading too! I can use this anywhere, under eyes, acne scars, discoloration. I’ve found this is also great to do a little highlighting and contouring.
NYX HD concealer is another favorite. I would say this is more like the MAC PL concealer than the Hard Candy or Laura Geller concealers. It’s very lightweight and has some slip to it. I love to use this under my eyes after I use a dark circle corrector. This is an easily buildable concealer that provides good coverage. Make sure to let it set and then dust with loose powder to set, so it lasts. NYX HD concealer comes in corrector colors, but I haven’t tried those shades.
Technically my next choice isn’t a concealer, but a corrector. Pigmented and creamy, yet heavy-duty, the Pixi Correction Concentrate will hide the darkest of under eye circles. I love this product! I pat a little on with my finger and let it set, then apply a concealer on top and dust a little loose powder to set and prevent creasing. Are you concealer obsessed? What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear, so I can add more concealers to my wish list! 🙂 Leave me a note in the comments!

Here’s a few FOTD pics from the past week or so. My eyes look a little washed out, but I promise it looked nicer in person!
Most pics were using my everyday favorites from my makeup bag.
I usually use Missha M perfect cover BB cream #21 as a primer, with Revlon Colorstay in buff for foundation.
MAC Prolongwear concealer is my current fave for covering acne scarring. I use a bit of MAC MSF in my t zone. For bronzer and contour I almost always use Benefit Hoola. It’s my go to shade, as it looks good on my fair skin in any season. For blush I have been loving a peach combo (for some reason I can’t wear many peach toned blushes) with NYC cheek glow blush in Sutton Place Peach topped with MAC mineralize blush in Amber Glow.
To highlight I use Benefit high beam on my cheekbones, down the center of my nose, cupid’s bow and a touch above my brow. I also have been liking Hard Candy tiki baked bronzer. It’s very pretty, but way too light for a bronzer. I’ve heard its a dupe for LORAC’s spotlight.
Under my eyes I have been using NYX HD concealer in Light after I tap on a little bit of pixi beauty peach correcting concealer. I always set it with a light dusting of powder to prevent creasing.
My favorite eye primer is Painterly paint pot from MAC. My eyelids tend to be dry and this is very emollient, and it never creases my shadows. I almost always use some combination of eyeshadows from my Urban Decay Naked 1 and 2 palettes. I love Naked, Buck or Tease in my crease. I think in one of the pics I used purple tones from the palettes. Foxy is a great blending out color for my skin tone. I don’t really care for the velvet texture, but it works!
I’m obsessed with Rimmel’s scandaleyes kohl liners. I wear the dark brown on my upper lash line (and to tightline) almost everyday. The Nude is lovely on the waterline for brightening your eyes. I have contacts, and fairly sensitive eyes and never have irritation with these liners.
For my brows I have been using the ELF brow duo in medium. It’s not my HG shade (which I have yet to find) but it’s good. I love the wax side, because I have these obnoxious browlicks (yeah, cowlick in my brows) and this tames them a bit.
My lashes are a little weird right now. I’m loosing so much hair (on my head and lashes) from my Lyme Disease, so I have some bald spots. (Ummmm seriously, why cant I loose the obnoxious random chin hairs?!) I like Cover Girl’s Clump crusher mascara, and I sometimes layer it with L’Oreal telescopic water proof. That holds a great curl like nothing I’ve tried (I have stick straight lashes) but it is a PAIN IN THE ASS to get off.
Lips are easy! I almost always grab one of my NYX butter glosses. They are the best lip product EVER! Seriously, if you haven’t tried them, you need to! I like them more than any other gloss/butter/lipstick/stain out there.
What are your go-to make up choices for everyday? I’d love to hear some favorite products, and see pics!
In the eye pic I had used UD YDK with MAC Fix+ on my lid, tease in the crease, Toated and hustle in the outer v. I have MAC Prunella eye kohl on.
Hello, and welcome to my blog sale! I ship worldwide from the US. I’m on Makeup Alley (SPamber), ebay (sweetpea9946) and twitter (@daydream_beauty). Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions. I’ve had a lot of interest in my blog sales lately, but not a lot of sales. I’d really appreciate it if you get back with me and let me know if you are not going to purchase my items, rather than leaving me hanging.
If you have any questions about the items, please get in touch. I will leave the sanitizing up to you. I ship as soon as I possibly can, occasionally it’s once or twice a week.
I’d love to get rid of the used items! If you are purchasing a large lot, make an offer! I’m sure we can work something out.
If you live outside of the US, please be aware that the US Postal Service had an obscene rate hike this January. I am not looking to make money on shipping, but I can’t charge you less than what I will pay. Thanks for understanding!
Have a great day!
