Good things come in small packages. We didn’t believe it at first too, but the M.A.C Mini collection has us all convinced. Think all the brand’s best-selling makeup in mini, travel-friendly sizes that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. We’re talking about cult buys, like Studio Fix foundation that sells once every four minutes to their true blue-red lipstick, Ruby Woo, that’s almost every girl’s go-to.
Mini M.A.C is the perfect buy for you, whether you are a makeup enthusiast who loves experimenting or a beauty newbie who is just testing the waters. Read on to know the best of these tiny delights that create maximum impact.
1. Mini M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid
These travel-sized versions of M. best-selling liquid foundation are perfect if you love a natural matte finish. You can apply a few drops during the day to achieve medium coverage and build it up for full coverage for the night.
The best part? This foundation glides on like a dream, minimizes the appearance of pores and doesn’t feel cakey either. We love that it has SPF 15 for an extra layer of sun protection, so you can take on your day worry-free.
2. Mini M.A.C In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara 3D Black
Nothing adds drama to your look faster than a few coats of mascara, and this lightweight whipped formula is all one needs. The large, moulded brush coats your lashes with a jet-black formula that contains ultra-mini fibres to curl, lengthen and boost volume at the same time.
Oh, and you’ll love how the precise tip reaches tiny lashes on inner corners to the eyes. The mini size makes it perfect to carry along for touch-ups too!
3. Mini M.A.C Lipstick in Ruby Woo
If you have ever wanted to try every single one of M.A.C's iconic lipstick shades, this is your chance. These clutch-sized versions have the brand’s cult favourite shades packed into mini bullets.
From the world-famous Ruby Woo red to Mehr, the perfect pink nude created by makeup artist Mickey Contractor, you have a shade range to turn every head no matter where you go. Pick from retro matte, matte and satin finishes, although our advice would be to simply get them all.
4. Mini M.A.C In Extreme Dimension 24-Hour Kajal Eye Liner
Is your kajal playing a mid-day disappearing act on you? Make the switch to M. intensely pigmented, long-lasting formula which lives up to its promise, lasting for 24 hours without smudging or transferring. What we love most, though, is that it has a subtle luminous finish which adds more dimension to your eyes as compared to a regular, matte black.
5. Mini M.A.C Strobe Cream in
Think of M. Strobe Cream as a hybrid between a moisturiser and a glow-boosting primer. Truly the best mix of makeup and skincare, it is packed with botanicals, vitamins and green tea that refresh and hydrate tired skin. Apply it before your foundation; its pearlescent finish leaves you with a radiant, sun-kissed glow that you only see in movies. It’s half the size but double the benefits.
