Ive got a £30 MAC voucher
I am 51, have a minimal make up routine (usuallly no foundation, sometimes a pore blurring thing and foundation (Boots)
I use an aldi serum
I like nail varnish (which i dont think they sell)
I am not a big lipstick person
My skin is dryish. I would like either a really quick foundation / tinted moisturiser i think.
Any ideas? Or shall i re-gift it?

I treated myself to 2 Mac lipsticks last year, they're so moisturising I can use them as lipbalms. Don't have any of their other stuff but if the quality is the same you'll love it

MAC has a massive collection, you can definitely find something new for £30

You can try a highlighter of which they have both creams and powders, still fits with your low makeup look

You can buy a neutral eyeshadow palette eg Dusky Rose Times Nine, or an eye pencil?

They have skincare too, so a new moisturiser or primer to help with your dryer skin? You could try fix+ which is a hydrating face mist

Face and Body foundation is iconic and buildable. Or one of their powder foundations.

If your skin leans towards dryness and you're after a base product that's very low maintenance to use, I would go for either the Next to Nothing Face Colour (similar to a tinted moisturiser and very sheer) or the B.B. Beauty Balm (which is more like a regular tinted moisturiser and has a bit more coverage).

Tendertalk lip balms are my staples, currently have pretty me up and candy wrapped on the go

Im going to try the bb beauty balm
I cant use the voucher online it seems, so will have to go into a store.

You could buy a make-over session for £30 and then they deduct the £30 from what you buy. It's a good way to try products.

I love the Eye Khol in Teddy. It's a lovely bronzey brown. Good for everyday subtle eyeliner.

They do have nail varnish! But I don't find the quality to be worth the price. Their concealers are very good if you need one.

They do perfume as well

Based on what you said I would highly recommend the Face and body foundation. Much better than the BB
