Calling all NC25's


Well-known member
What are your favorite items from mac that flatter you the most if you are an nc25. They can be le or permanent. I am going to my mac counter this weekend and most often they are busy so I don't get alot of one on one time.

I look good in tawny colors, but i've found my purchases lately have gotten too similar and i'm taking less risks. i need to get out of this rut!

Blushes, highlighters, and lipsticks are mainly the rec's i'm looking for. I've got a ton of eyeshadow, so that is under control, i think. thanks!

NC25 Studio Sculpt or NC300 Hyper Real (i know it's d/c but its lush)
Golden Bronzer
Hush Cream Colour Base as a highlighter
Modesty Creamsheen Lipstick or Crem D Nude Creamsheen lipstick

MAC mineralize blush Love thing

(also Dollymix suits fine to us but I prefer right now Love thing)

Try Intenso blush also - my friend have it (she's also NC25) and looks perfect on her

Mineralize shadow Family Silver - it lightening the eyes perfectly, but on the edge I usually put My black Lancome shadow.

And let us know what you pick

I don't have a huge MAC collection yet, but here are a few I like:

Melba Powder Blush - (Soft coral-peach (Matte)) looks nice

Give the Rose Romance Beauty Powder Blush of Youth a try as well and see if you like it like I do.
Also from RR is the See Thru Lip Colour Secret Crush. I'm fond of it and think its a great shade, but I know not everyone likes See Thru Lip Color.

If your MAC has older Limited Edition items, check out the Blonde & Redhead MSFs. I also like Fun n Games Blush from Hello Kitty, am wearing it now.

Have fun playing with all the dazzleglasses, too! May I recommend Money, Honey Dazzleglass? To me it is one of the best. Also I think that Viva Glam VI SE Lipstick is a winner.

Lately I have been using NC25 mixed with NW20 shades and it looks pretty good on my skin!

Try Sunbasque, Peachtwist, or Tippy mixed with Golden Bronzer. They look gorgeous on the paler sides of NC.
