Spring Makeup by MAC Cosmetics


Mac Cosmetics Spring Makeup Picks

Spring is one of my favourite times of year, when the sun starts to show it’s cheerful face and walks in the park are drawing closer, even if it may still be a little brisk here in the UK we can still embrace some Spring makeup choices.

Stepping into Spring I wanted to bring some of my favourite picks from MAC Cosmetics to showcase to you all. As it’s not quite Summertime yet, I have opted for some warming yet shimmery tones for the face and eyes and a deeper reddish lip.

From Left to Right

Mac Lipsticks in Media & Darkside. Media is a satin reddish-purple colour & Dark Side is a Deep burgundy which is an Amplified Creme.

Pro Long Wear Paint Pot in Indianwood – A metallic antique bronze shaded eyeshadow. Such an intense colour, a beautiful gold which is ideal for those Summer nights.

Mineralise Blush in Petal Power – A pretty coral pink with a golden shimmer which is perfect for the Spring with its beautiful shimmer!

Strobe Cream which is a great product to use under or over foundation to create that dewy skin look.

Studio Nail Lacquer in Soiree which is a beautiful bronze gold sparkly colour.

Foiled Shadow in Enchanted Forest which is a a Limited Edition shade from the Faerie Whispers Collection. This is a beautiful rich warm brown which is perfect to warm up your eyes.

Extra Dimensions Eyeshadows in Stylishly Merry which is a a dusty violet & Rich Core, a wild aubergine. These eyeshadows are so beautiful to look at with their curvy product design & look beautiful on the eye.


During the Spring you can really play around with beautiful warm and shimmery tones and play a look up or down.

In the daytime it’s lovely to see a sparkly eye glistening in the sunlight & a warm shimmering dewy looking cheek.

On the nails you can opt for a lighter yet a warm shimmer which really will work perfectly with sun-kissed skin.

Bolder lips can still be worn during the Spring, even though they are usually a Winter favourite you can still be daring as a rouge lip looks beautiful teamed with radiant hues of golden shimmer. zChocolatzChocolatzChocolatzChocolatzChocolat



These beautiful MAC products were photographed alongside delicious luxury French Chocolates by ZChocolat. These particular chocolates are from their Romantic ZBox Key which contains some beautiful heart shaped chocolates.

The dark chocolates from the collection contains Vanilla Bourbon caramel encased in rich dark chocolate. The red shades one contains a bergamote-infused ganache which is delicious! macblush



The quality of MAC makeup always impresses & it’s so easy to find the perfect look for you especially with the help of their impressive customer service team on-line who were beyond helpful.

If you’re looking for a shimmery warming look to step in to Spring I would recommend any of the beautiful products showcased above.

Here are some more favourite picks from MAC to inspire.

What are your favourite products from the items reviewed above? What are your favourite products from MAC in general?

  • Denise

    Love the strobe cream and I like bold lips! I loved the chocolate photos, because I can’t eat chocolate till May 🙁

    • The strobe cream is lovely, skin looks so refreshed when mixed into foundation.

      The chocolate from zChocolat is very tasty, so perhaps in May you can try some of these 😉

  • mac is my fav! very awesome picks!


  • The Indianwood paint pot looks so beautiful! I think my favorite MAC products are All Fired Up and Ruby Woo retro matte lipsticks, but those two you featured in the post definitely look like shades I’d love to try.

    • The Indianwood Paint Pot is such a lovely golden eyeshadow colour, it would suit you.

      I have heard so much about Ruby Woo, it looks like a beautiful colour. I’ll have to take a look at All Fired Up 🙂

      Glad you liked the post 🙂

  • I wouldn’t think to wear dark lipstick for spring, but those colors are really pretty! Thanks for sharing and beautiful photos.


    • A dark lip although usually seen as a festive colour is also wearable in the Spring also. It looks really pretty with shimmery golden eye makeup on a warmer evening 🙂

      Thanks so much for reading!

  • I honestly don’t have any MAC makeup but feel like I need to get some!!


    • If you haven’t tried MAC makeup before a suggestion of trying a lipstick first 🙂
      So much variety and if you need help in terms of shading their online team are so helpful.

  • Petal Power looks lovely, although appears to be very similar to a blush I already have (Dainty). I also love the look of the foiled eyeshadows. Every time I pop into a Mac store I fancy buying one. x

    • Petal Power really is a very pretty shade, it’s got a beautiful shimmery finish to it.

      I love walking into a MAC store, so much choice!

      I love MAC at Duty Free whenever I travel also as they store some great Limited Edition lipsticks there and they’re so nicely showcased.

      Thanks for popping by and glad you enjoyed the post.

      MAC is an impressive brand and photographing their products along with the French luxury chocolates was great fun 🙂

    • MAC is a great brand and certainly recommend trying their beautiful products.

      If you haven’t tried the brand before perhaps start out with a lipstick as the quality of each one is amazing, I love the Satin finishes.

  • I absolutely love the Spring time too Laura! These shades are so gorgeous, I love wearing warm tones early in the year. I feel like it will make Summer come quicker for some reason haha. The Mineralize blush looks absolutely stunning too, I have to get this. The fact that it has gold tones running through it is perfection. Your pictures also make every product all the more enticing, as usual.:D

  • Doreen’s Style Diary

    Love what you picked out. Mac makeup collection is amazing.


  • The chocolates are very destructing, and am officially craving chocolate. I love the primer, the blush and the burgundy lipstick, those always work for me. Mac has amazing products. Great review Laura!

    • The Chocolate from zChocolat are delicious! Moorish that’s for sure!

      Did you know that Dark Chocolate is actually good for you? The darker the better, more of an excuse to opt for a little now and again!

      Yes MAC really is an impressive brand. Their lipsticks are gorgeous and so long lasting, the pretty blush reviewed here has such a pretty peachy shimmer.

      Thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed!

  • AB

    Adoring that choice of lipsticks! I want to buy a brown shade for myself as well!


  • You picked my two fave MAC lip colours 💕 – Dark Side and Media are the ultimate vampy lip colours that give such a chic glam look.

    I’m always impressed with the quality of MAC too, they’re a real game changer…and it always astounds me how I can take a sip of water and there’s no lippie on the glass/bottle when I’m wearing MAC.

    Makes you worry less about touch-ups!

    – Lubna | The Digital Review

    • Dark Side & Media really are lovely colours, I do love a dark vampy lip colour!

      Another two favourite darker MAC shades are Paramount & Film Noir, mixed together they create a beautiful warm vintage browny red.

      Yes you’re right about MAC, the quality is impressive especially the lipsticks as they’re so long-lasting!

      Thank you! I’m really glad you like the photographs 🙂

  • The Sunday Mode

    I think the paintpot here and the blush appeals to me the most, I love a nice mineralise blush. Those chocolates look incredible as well though, beautiful photography!


    • I’m really glad you like the post 🙂 The Paint Pot is gorgeous, a really pretty golden colour and easy to apply. The blush is a very pretty one from MAC, impressive quality as always.

      The chocolates from zChocolat are delicious!

      Thank you, I’m so glad you like the photography 🙂

  • The foiled shadow looks so luxurious and I can only imagine how amazing it must look when applied! Lovely lip colours too, I’m keen to expand my lipstick collection this spring, so will take a look at these dramatic options 🙂

    Gabrielle | A Glass Of Ice x

    • The foiled eyeshadow is really pretty and a lovely warm brown, I would use this shade to contour my eyes or to create a metallic smoky, it would look great with the Indianwood Paint Pot.

      Thanks so much for reading 🙂




  • Petal Power looks gorgeous! I really need to try the Paint Pots too – I don’t know how I still haven’t! This looks like the perfect everyday base colour xx

    Jasmine Talks Beauty

    • It’s a really pretty blush and I think it would really suit you. I spotted a review on a few of the Paint Pots and I had to try.

      Indianwood is a really beautiful colour, golden tones are so pretty in the Spring and all year around too!

      Thanks for reading 🙂
