Which MAC makeup to buy?

Hello fellow makeup-enthusiasts! smile

Recently I was given a MAC voucher for £50 and I have no idea what to buy. I currently own the studio fix foundation, but haven't used it yet because I can't find a matching setting powder (so maybe I should get that?). Apart from that, I haven't ever purchased from MAC and I'm really keen to try their products. I'm aware that £50 will probably only buy like two things, but it's a start! I don't want any brushes or primer, and I have the foundation already, so apart from those, what would you recommend? I'm most likely going to get a lipstick (Ruby Woo, come at me) so I'll probably only be able to get one other thing- what products of theirs do you rate?smile

I love everything <helpful>

The staff are usually super-helpful so I would ask their advice.

I'm rather jealous.

Their eyeshadows are fantastic, really long lasting.

Off piste but I love their volcanic ash exfoliator.

I never met a girl that didn't suit their velvet teddy lipstick grin

Thanks for all the replies!

Also, why didn't the foundation come with a pump?confused

I only like their lipsticks. Definitely not ruby woo though. Makes my lips itch just thinking about putting that on. Worst texture ever.

Russian red, brave, see sheer, faux and cosmo are my personal favourites. The creme ones don't last long.

Tendertalk lip balm & false lash mascara were my faves,I spent a fortune just before realising they test on animals confused

Angel lipstick is next on my list.

Ooh, and their Mehr matte lipstick is my everyday go-to. I think it's perfect.

I loved the Strobe cream. Put on over moisturiser, under foundation and it gives a beautiful dewy glow. Or use it on top of make up as a highlighter. Lovely.
