What to Buy from MAC

What to Buy from MAC

I’ve had a lot of conversations with readers and fellow beauty bloggers recently about where MAC fits into a market that is now so saturated with affordable (and not-so-affordable) high-quality makeup. There is no question that the brand was an industry trailblazer for many years and was the first choice for professional makeup artists and amateur beauty buffs alike. However, as the world of makeup and skincare has exploded in recent times, their offering has become less competitive and more expensive, which made me think: well, what is worth buying from MAC? It’s not really a question of quality or…

Camilla’s Top 10 Holy Grail Items

I feel like I am living out of Country Road tog bag at the moment – between my flat, my boyfriend’s house and weekends away, I feel like I am constantly packing and unpacking. Thankfully, putting together my makeup/hair/toiletry bags for the next morning/weekend are often the easiest part because the basics are always the same. These basics are my Holy Grail items – the ones I never leave behind and the ones I always repurchase.

I first learnt about this product when my boyfriend started using it and I became hypnotised by the scent…

How Much Is Your Face Worth?

If you’re anything like me (which, for the sake of your bank balance, I sincerely hope you aren’t), most mornings start with trying to decide what to put on your face. I have containers full of make-up, and I try to use different products every day because otherwise I would never get through it all. However, on days when I’m not feeling particularly inspired, I have a fail-safe list of products that I know I can slap onto my face and they’ll leave me looking (relatively) polished. I started doing a little mental arithmetic one morning as I gazed lovingly…
