MAC HAS LAUNCHED AT ASOS

By Caroline Ferry, 14 March 2018

The arrival of MAC to ASOS signals a real shift for all of us here at HQ – from this day forth there is basically no reason to ever shop anywhere else ever again. Ideal. Super-excitingly the brand launched on site last night, bringing with them all the big hitters, from their Prep +Prime Fix + spray to the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation.

In case you’re not yet a convert (have you really never done the airport dash, even once?), then here’s a lowdown of some of MAC’s most-famous cult buys.

Prep +Prime Fix + Spray

The clue's kind of in the name here, but this really is an absolute gem. It's a toner, makeup fixing spray and refreshing, soothing mist all in one. So you can use it in the morning to freshen up before you moisturise, spray it over your artful going-out makeup to keep it in place or just spritz at your leisure throughout the day for when you want to feel fresh and fancy. Make room in your bag for this one.

 

MAC Prep +Prime Fix +, £19

MAC Studio fix Powder+ foundation

Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

When you find a powder foundation that isn’t just a small circle of dust and really does something, you tend to fall in love. Case in point, this guy. It can be used on all skin types which is helpful, and as it's long-wearing, it shouldn’t need topping up for eight hours. Also, as it feels so light compared to many liquid foundations, your skin can still breathe easy while you wear it.

 

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, £24.50


MAC Strobe Cream

Strobe Cream

This sounds a lot weirder than it actually is. Essentially what we have here is a really helpful moisturiser. It's rich in vitamins and botanicals, which is what you need to stop your skin becoming dehydrated, but it's also full of iridescent particles which basically make you glow under any type of light or sunshine. Hence, strobe.

 

MAC Strobe Cream, £12

Eyeshadow

Use wet (with water or eyelid primer) for precision colouring-in, or dry for a highly pigmented power paint. This shade, one of so many, is called Electric Eel, and if you’re a born-again 80s queen then this is your new BNO buddy.

 

MAC Satin Small Eyeshadow in Electric Eel, £14

140S Full Fan Brush

What’s cool about this brush (apart from the fact it just feels lovely to swish all over your cheeks) is that the synthetic fibres are all different lengths and thickness, so they’re better at picking up and applying powders. And it is so big, you can do your whole face in approximately three strokes. Which is key.
