MAC Cosmetics Pro Store Wants!

Tomorrow I head off to the PRO store with fellow beauty blogger, Karen, to make a huge birthday haul! Okay, maybe not huge, but we’ll see, right? We always hope that we’ll be dissuaded from what we want, but somehow manage to come home with not just our list, but several off-list items as well.

I’d love to your opinions on any PRO items you think I should check out! BTW, I will do my best to swatch the new PRO launches 🙂


  • Lip Erase in Dim (maybe Pale?)
  • Gloss in Guava (maybe Pink Pearl and Rosy Coral)
  • Face & Body (C4)
  • Studio Fix Pastels
  • Cream Colour Base in Pink (maybe Antiqued Gold, Rich Coral)
  • Beauty Powder/Loose in Drizzle Gold, Daisydust, Peach Haze (I hope these are out!)
  • Shaping Powders (actually have these on their way to me!)
  • Sculpting Powers (also on the way)

I expect I will also pick up a few more of the Matte2 shadows while I’m there. Hopefully I can control myself on the Mattenes 😉 I’m also interested in checking out the 174 brush, all of the pro glosses, the new reflects glitters (if they’re out), drool over a few pigments I don’t have, and the like.

What are some of your favorite PRO items?

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I just received the lip erase in pale…I love it. It covers lightly, but you can build the coverage. I was wondering if Dim would have given better coverage for my pigmented lips. I also felt that it moisturized my lips as well as covering.

Ooh, the glosses sound dreamy 🙂
