Once in a while a curious side of me kicks in, I end up being sneaky and wonder what others get. I guess it comes from watching so many haul videos on Youtube. Are you the same way? My mini MAC Haul has three MAC products, which was recently added to my makeup.

It has been so long that I’ve purchased something from MAC. I always found an excuse like “I don’t need it at the moment or I can find a similar product cheaper and so on”. I was also good with purchases and I haven’t bought many things recently, so with a little encouragement from my fiancé as a birthday gift, I picked up two more things from MAC. What do I have in mini MAC Haul?

My Mini MAC Haul – Lipstick, Blush and Foundation

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo was what my fiancé picked up for me when he was at the airport to come to visit me. It was a surprise for me when he gave it to me. Ruby Woo is a gorgeous shade and he made a wise decision, right? Later on he told me the conversation he had with the sale assistants at the MAC counter. So story begins like that…

He still had some time to kill before his flight, so he just walked around and saw the MAC store. He walked into the store without hesitation and looked around completely clueless. Then a sales assistant asked him if he needs any help then he says he wants to pick up a MAC lipstick for me. The lady showed him all the colours and give a look like “pick one!”, I can’t even decide which colour to try when I walk into MAC, so think how bad would it be for men… The sales assistant asked him which colour he thinks would suit me and he showed a picture of me to her. Then she showed him on that he didn’t like, but the second suggestion of the lady was perfect match, Ruby Woo! She also told him it is one of the most sold colours of MAC. Then he thought nothing should go wrong with that. How much a man can know about makeup

I was actually planning to wear more red lips this year so Ruby Woo was a good start to this year. He always picks up makeup stuff for me and surprises me, he is the best and I can say he is really good at it.

Mac Haul with Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo, MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen and MAC Pro Longwear foundation

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush

I mostly buy products after reading a few reviews about it, however, MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen was just a one minute decision. I went to MAC for checking out the foundation, and ended up buying this blush. It is the first blush I own from MAC, I hope I haven’t made a bad decision picking it. I really liked how it looked on the skin, because it is really glowing. It looks similar to Nars Orgasm (It has been on my wishlist for so long, but whenever I wanted to get it, it was always out of stock). Nars Orgasm is more on the pinkie side where as Peachykeen is on the peachy side as the name would tell.

MAC Pro Longwear SPF10 Foundation

My second trip to the MAC store, and I ended up picking my beloved MAC Pro Longwear SPF10 Foundation in NC30, which is the last item in my Mini Mac Haul. The lady in MAC wasn’t sure which shade I was and she kept complaining about not having the swatches for my skin tone, it was actually annoying. I have really light skin at the moment, so they said I would probably be something from NC20 to NC30 and they only had a NC30 tester. When it was applied to my face, it actually looked good. Also, having a shade darker sounds better than having a shade lighter. Don’t you think so? I kept touching my face that day, and my face was looking flawless (heart eyed emojis)!

I will definitely be writing individual posts about my mini MAC Haul products after using them and I hope you will enjoy them. Have you tried any of these products? What was the last thing you purchased?

    I really want to try the Pro Longwear! Heard great things, I wish I suited red lipstick because this one is lovely too! x


    • Pro long wear is great, if you have oily skin. It is really long lasting. I’m not a red person but I want to change that x

  • I’ve been dying to get my hands on MAC lipsticks and see if they are really worth the money.

    Candice | Beauty Candy Loves

  • Oh my goodness it’s so funny your fiancé got you Ruby Woo because mine did too for Christmas! Haha he was so cute when he told the story. He was like I just marched in there and new exactly what I wanted and they were really taken aback. They tried to sell him the matching lipliner too! Hilarious.


    • Ha ha 🙂 Ruby woo is gorgeous, isn’t it? They are really brave to get them, a tore full of women, and I can imagine them getting weird stares 🙂

  • Roberta Romeo

    Wow your boyfriend couldn’t choose better!!
    I love Ruby Woo, it’s a very great shade!! *-*
    One of my ny resolutions is to buy more Mac products eheh! 😉
    Actually I have just one lipstick!

    • This is also what I am planning to do. Instead of getting many drugstore products, just invest on some high end products 🙂 xx

  • Wow such a great shade I can imagine it would look amazing on you Ela. xx

  • Ashley Christabelle

    Gorgeous lipstick shade!


  • Aww, how thoughtful of your fiancé to get you a Mac lipsticks. I’d love to try it. I heard so many great reviews.


  • Karina Guimarães Ribeiro

    This products are so good, Mac is the best!



  • Wow your man is a keeper. My husband seems to have all kinds of info on makeup these days. Funny what they pick up! I love Ruby Woo, such a classic colour 🙂

    Pams Stuff and Things

    • I make him read my posts before I publish them so he is slowly learning everything about the makeup, and whenever we are at the store I just explain the difference haha 🙂 x

  • How super thoughtful! My hubby would never have a clue about buying me makeup, or even how to find a MAC counter! I have always wanted to try Ruby Woo, I’m a red lip phobe but it sounds nice and cool toned. I tried on Russian Red passing through Heathrow recently and it did me no favors whatsoever! Peachykeen looks and sounds fab, I admit Nars Orgasm didn’t blow me away when I tried it on once it barely showed up on my skin. I do want to try more MAC makeup but the store in our fancy mall is always full of teenagers and blaring music and I just can’t deal with it! ;-0

    • I have never been a fan of red lippies but I want to get into red more, it is a classy colour! It was a big surprise that he picked up a red lipstick for me, a good decision 🙂 Orgasm has a little bit more shimmers in it and more on the pink side, if you get a chance give peachykeen a try, it is pretty. Most of the MAC stores I visit are full of teenagers and they just use make up then leave, and the sales assistants are not really helpful (it is really annoying) so I hardly ask their help.

  • I will need to try a MAC foundation once. Also can’t wait to see swatches of that blush! 🙂

    • I want to try other MAC foundations too, pro longwear is best for a heavy coverage but this is not what I want for everyday use. This blush is a beauty <3 🙂

  • Such a bummer she didn’t have your colors in store. That has never happened to me before. I hope the match works for you.
    And your fiancé is impressive. Mine refuses to buy anything makeup related, it is all a waste of time in his eyes…

    Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    • It happens to me all the time, whatever I ask for they don’t have it so it wasn’t a surprise for me. The sales assistants are never helpful, they just act like they are the owners of the store.
      I wasn’t expecting that from him, I mean he picks up the stuff I can’t find here but that was really it. He also picked up Benefit they’re real mascara too, so 2 unexpected products from him 🙂

  • How nice of your fiancé to get this lipsticks for you 🙂 I’ve been thinking of trying the Pro Longwear foundation for ages, definitely need to put in on my wish list 🙂 x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • I like how it feels on the skin and it just gives really flawless finish. I don’t have to worry about my foundation for some hours, which is great 🙂 xx

  • Your story about Ruby Woo is so cute! Your fiancé did good, because this shade is one of the best they have! The blusher looks super pretty, and will make a perfect colour for the summer 🙂

    Love the story about behind the MAC lipstick choice!
    Charlotte // charlottespicks.blogspot.com

  • Love this foundation so much! And that blush shades looks gorgeous! Great picks! Thanks for sharing! x


  • I’ve tried the foundation.. I wasn’t a massive fan, I found it to drying for me. So you’ll probably love it! I also ways go darker if I’m unsure of the shade! I’m looking forward to seeing the post on the blush, it looks lovely! xx

    • I actually really like the foundation, I’ve used it a long time ago and now I am happy that I picked it up again. I have really oily face so this foundation really works on my skin and gives me a flawless look. Peachykeen is a pretty one xx

  • I’m telling you, your man has got some skills, even if he gets a little help, he knows the way to your heart, haha! I need to get my hands on that Ruby Woo because I’ve heard sooooo many great things about it! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day and week so far!



    • He really knows how to make me happy, he is the best 🙂 You should definitely get Ruby Woo, it would really suit you. I hope you are having a lovely weekend, enjoy your Sunday, sweetie! xx

  • You have a good fiance for braving the MAC store haha! What an amazing buy as well! Ruby Woo is a great shade! It’s a classic! I’m curious how you will like it! I find it a bit hard to put on since it’s a matte shade! That blush looks beautiful as well!! Great mini haul!

    Shannon Sage

    • I have really dry lips at the moment, no matter what I do I can’t get it all soft *sigh* so I can’t really use this lipstick. I need to get myself a lip scrub and apply many coats of lip balm before using it. x

      • Yeah this winter is killing my lips! I need a good lip scrub as well haha!:)

  • I love the red shade! I can’t wait to see what it looks like on you!

    • Bende son birkac aydir hicbirsey almamaya calismistim, ama kendime dogum gunu hediyesi olarak aldim bunlari. Bi kac ayda harcamadigim parayi harcamis oldum 🙂

  • I’ve only tried Mac lipsticks and mascara, never the foundation so it would be interesting to read your thoughts on it. And Ruby Woo is very drying on the lips but it’s one of my favourite to wear because it’s a real stunner.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Blush is something new to me, I hope I didn’t make a bad decision picking up this one. I have oily skin so this foundation makes wonders and gives me a flawless skin. Ruby Woo is gorgeous, I just need to make my lips super soft before using it.

  • love the look of this blusher great haul can’t beat a read lipstick from Mac!


  • Claire Cavanagh

    I’ve always been intrigued by MAC’s foundations as I’ve heard quite mixed things, would love a full review 🙂

    Claire | Stylingo.co.uk xx

    • Pro long wear is perfect for oily skin, it lasts for so long without getting shiny! 🙂 x

  • I haven’t actually tried any of these products from MAC, their store is always so packed! The last thing I brought was a Revlon balm from TKMaxx, your fiance made some great choices though! 🙂

    Velvet Blush

    • I like going there either early in the morning or late in the evening, I just want to take my time to look through things, it is almost impossible when there are so many people in the store. I need to try more Revlon products, I only used a few things xx

  • The only products I’ve tried is Ruby Woo and I love it! It’s very matte and super long-lasting!
    It’s so sweet of your fiancé to surprise you with makeup!!! <3

    • I really like the colour, but I can’t use it at the moment. My lips are really dry, and no matter what I do I can’t get them soft :/

  • What a lovely haul! I got a MAC lipstick before Christmas in the shade Plumful and u really like the colour, it’s not a matte shade through so not that long lasting!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • Plumful is a beautiful shade, I kept swatching it in the store but never picked it up:)

  • I want to try Ruby Woo so bad but since I don’t bright lips often, I haven’t shelled out the money. This review is definitely adding to the reasons why I should purchase it!
    xx Dany

    • I wasn’t really into bright lips either but Ruby Woo just changed it. It is a stunner! x

  • Such great products in this M.A.C haul Ela! I am absolutely obsessed with M.A.C blushes, so I am sure that you will love your first one. I prefer peachy toned blushes and I own Melba and Peaches from there. I really want to check out Peachykeen now, it sounds like something that I would literally wear every day lol.

    • Peaches is also a lovely shade, I wasn’t sure about which one to pick. I like the texture of the blush, I am happy about it 🙂

  • That’s so nice that your husband would buy makeup for you. Anything that makes a man feel out of his comfort zone shows that he really cares 🙂

    This is such a fab little haul, dear! And how sweet is it of your fiancee to get you such a lovely lipstick! 🙂 I can only imagine how confusing and difficult it must be for men to try and get their heads wrapped around all the different lipstick shades… Definietly would love to read your detailed reviews on these, I’m especially curious about that shimmery blush, it looks so gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, hun. <3 <3 Sending lots of love your way!


    • I even get confused whenever I enter the store so I can really imagine how he must have been feeling, but yeah he did a great job 🙂 Sending you lots of love, sweetie! Hope your Sunday is going so good! <3 xx

  • I haven’t used much MAC makeup before, but I love that shimmer blush! Sounds like a great haul 🙂


    • MAC has some great products, I’ve only tried a few but want to try more 🙂

  • This is going to sound horrible, but I don’t own anything from MAC at all! I’ve been into their store a few times but nothing really caught my eye. I have a friend who uses the foundation a lot and her skin always looks flawless though!


    • I only have a few products from MAC, nothing much 🙂 I have oily skin and it is really hard to find a foundation which will last for long, but this foundation is one of them.

  • I nearly bought Peachykeen once. It’s such a beautiful shade. x

    Renata | Speaking Beauty UK

  • The story with your fiance is so cute! Peachykeen looks like a great shade. I don’t have a MAC blush either, though my sister does (hers is called Melba), but I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet. My latest purchase from MAC was their fix+, I’d recommend it to everyone!

    becky ♡ star violet

    • There are a few more that I want to try, I was just in hurry when I picked it up but I am really happy with the decision. It looks really pretty. I want to purchase fix+, it has been on the list for a while.

  • MAC makeup… now you are speaking my language girl!! I love their makeup, it is just SO worth the money. I think a really great all natural version of their foundation is Tarte Amazonian Clay, have you tried it?

    xo Annie

    • I haven’t tried anything from Tarte, but I really want to. I don’t like getting products without trying, and I couldn’t find any store which sells Tarte. x

  • I love Ruby Woo, it’s such a classic color! Your man did good (even if he had little help from the sales assistant 😀 ). The blush looks gorgeous, too! 🙂

    Thirteen Thoughts

    • I am really happy which his pick, it is a beauty 🙂

  • Erin Russell

    I love what you picked up! and well done your man buying you a lipstick, dont think mine would even know where to start lol. Sorry to here your foundation matching wasnt a good experience, but really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the foundation once you have gotten used to it, I really want to try this once my Studio Fix runs out, but im scared I make the wrong choice! 🙂
    Oh and that blush is lovely… going onto the wishlist now 🙂


    • I’ve used the foundation long time ago and I was really happy with it, I hope it will be the same way again. I am always unlucky with matching, they never have the products I need. I also want to pick up studio fix when I don’t want a really high coverage. You should really check out that blush, it is pretty 🙂

  • I like Mac and i have one lipestick too, it’s amazing and it stays for a long time


  • Kiki Rampone

    These look amazing! Somehow I still haven’t tried anything from Mac, but it’s simply because I’m put off by the price. Love the look of all of these!

    xo Kiki


    • I wish they were cheaper, it kinds puts me off too. xx

  • Wow that was a great selection. Most guys I know would have just gone for the first one purely to get the hell out of that store lol. I can’t imagine how intimidating it must be for them.


    • He did a great job, Ruby Woo is a gorgeous shade 🙂 x

  • Nadia

    You know how obsessed I am with my Pro Longwear hon 🙂 So massive YES to it! I am NC25 in colder months as my skin naturally goes more pale (but it’s still not super pale because I got this fair olive type of skin shade) and NC30 is my 100% spring/summer shade. Love it so much! I am amazed at the shade of lippy your fiance picked! Yay him – well done!! 🙂
    xox Nadia

    • Since Summer is coming closer, I am sure NC30 will be fine for me 🙂
      He did a fab pick, I am happy with his decision! Have a lovely weekend xx

  • Peachykeen looks gorgeous! I really like the Sheertone formula xx
