Whenever we think of professional makeup, three letters come to mind: MAC. Used by professional artists and newbies alike, the brand’s sleek, cutting-edge products have secured their cult-fave status in every woman’s vanity. Whether you’re looking for a classic red lip or a skin-like base, any MAC purchase is certainly worth the investment.

That said, the brand’s wide assortment of MUA faves can be pretty overwhelming. So, here’s exactly where to start! Below, we break down 4 must-try MAC products that are guaranteed to keep you coming back for more (even if it hurts your wallet).

1. Prep + Prime Fix+, P1,250 This simple spray bottle is nothing like your ordinary face mist. Made with vitamins, green tea, chamomile, and cucumber, MAC’s famous fixing spray goes above and beyond. It soothes, hydrates, and refreshes skin, sets makeup, sheers out foundation, intensifies pigments, and extends makeup wear. All that in a single spritz? Forget the price tag—this stuff is worth its weight in gold.

Rave-reviewed for its lightweight formula, it features blendable pigments that deliver full coverage without caking or creasing. It boasts up to 15 hours of water-resistant wear, too, so you can stay flawless all day long. Hoard-worthy, if you ask us!
