I found this on an amazing blog ive just found..Amynicolaxo from a few months ago and since i have found a new love for MAC cosmetics i thought i would fill it in!

Obviously, as you know i havent tried or experienced many MAC products but i will fill you in on the ones i have tried and my thoughts on them! So expect 'never used' next to many of the questions, but it will be good to go back to in a few months and see how my MAC collection has grown!

So, here goes..

How long have you been using Mac?
I had my first MAC items bought for me for my 20th birthday in March just as the hello kitty collection had launched. My boyfriend kindly bought me 'tippy' blush and 'pink fish' tinted lip conditioner. So i have been using MAC on and off for the past 7 months! Late starter i know!
What was your first Mac product?First purchases i made myself were the nail polishes in 'steamy' gorgeous bright pink colour, and 'nocturnelle' a creamy black colour.
What's your all time favourite Mac product?I couldnt possibly choose one product, but from the tiny MAC collection i have so far it would be a toss up between tippy blush (absolutely gorgeous pink!), the 187 stippling blush or the lipstick in colour crafted!
What's your least favourite Mac product?I have heard not so good things about the MAC mascaras, which has put me off purchasing these. But out of the products i do have i would say the nail polishes are my least favourite as there are far better nail polishes available and i have found they take a few coats to gain the colour in the bottle.

Do you own a Pro Card?
No unfortunately i dont own a pro card, i wish i did! So i have to either pay full price from MAC or try and pick up some bargains from the CCO.

Your Mac foundation shade:
I am a NW20! And use the Mineralize skinfinish natural in medium over the top!
Your favourite Mac-Foundation:I have only ever use studio fix fluid so i would have to say this! Although i do love it, the coverage is amazing!

Out of the eyeshadows i own my favourite would have to be 'all that glitters' or 'sable'.

Absolutely love the lipsticks by MAC! My all time favourite must be colour crafted, the most gorgeous, wearable milky pink!
Lipgloss:Never used.

Never used, although i would love to try out blacktrack fluidline! Might be my next purchase!
Brush:I love all of the 6 MAC brushes i own but my faves are definately the 187 or 217!
Nail Lacquer:'Nocturnelle', a easy to wear, everyday creamy black.
Pro Product:The 15 pan pro palettes and the refill eyeshadows!

Comment on the following Mac product; Have you used them? If so, give feedback.

Prep + Prime Skin:
I have tried this but wouldnt really recommend it. I didnt even finish the bottle! It was quite glittery and didnt really help my foundation.

Full Coverage Foundation:
Never used.
Studio Sculpt Foundation:Never used.
Face + Body Foundation:Never used, and dont think i would purchase it either.

Mineralize Satin Finish:
Never used.

Studio Fix Fluid:
The only MAC foundation i own and have used, and i love it! I love foundations that give quite a heavy coverage so this is perfect!

Hyper Real Foundation:
Never used.
Select SPF15 Foundation:Never used.
Studio Tech Foundation:
Never used, dont really like cream foundations.

Beauty Powder:Never used, dont really see the point of these if im honest?
Sculpting Powder:Never use.

Shaping Powder:
Never used.

Loose Blot Powder:
Never used.

Pressed Blot Powder:
Never used.

Mineralize Skinfinish Natural:
I absoutely adore this product, use it everyday over my studio fix fluid.
Mineralize Skinfinsh:I own 3 mineralize skinfinishes all from the colour craft collection. Porcelain pink, sunny by nature and cheeky bronze. Out of all 3 i deffinately think my favourite is sunny by nature as it is the one i reach for the most. It is more matte and not as shimmery as the others and perfect for bronzing.

Bronzing Powder:
Never used.

Powder Blush:
Love them all, colour range is amazing. Especially love tippy from the hello kitty collection, most gorgeous pink i have ever seen.

Never used, have never purchased or used any sort of creme blush.

Mineralize Blush:
I absolutely adore the mineralize blushes, the colours are gorgeous and the colour pay off is amazing. My faves have to be either dainty or gentle.

Gel Blush:
Never used.

Cream Color Base:
Never used.

Studio Sculpt Concealer:
The only MAC concealer i own, and love! Consistency is amazing, quite thick which i love as it gives good consistency.

Select Cover Up Concealer:
Never used, but i think it will be the next concealer on my list to try out.
Select Moisture cover Concealer:Never used.

Studio Finish Concealer:
Never used. But i am intrigued!

Studio Stick:
Never used.
Lip Erase:Never used and dont really think i would ever purchase this.

Tinted Lip Conditioner:
I only own one, which is pink fish from the hello kitty collection and i love it. Not as moisturising as i thought it would be, but the colour is lovely!

The lipsticks by MAC are one of my favourite products! They have such an amazing range of colours and i especially love the nudes and light pinks!

Never used.
See Thru Lip Color:Never used.
Dazzleglass:Never used, but i am thinking about picking some of these up! Love the colours!

Cremesheen Glass:
Again, have never used but want to try them out.

Lip Gelee:
Never used.

Lip Pencil:
I have never used a lip pencil in my life, so havent picked up a MAC one. If im missing out though please let me know!
Solar Bits:Never used, and not really sure what they are meant to be used for either!

Nail Lacquer:
Nothing special, there are a tonne of better brands than MAC out there for nail polish although some of the colours are amazing!
Shadestick:Never used.

Never used, and not really sure how you would use them either.

Paint Pots:
I like the look of the paint pots but i have never used them. Im thinking of picking up a light coloured one such as painterly to try out on a neutral eye.

Eye Shadow:
MAC eyeshadows are like nothing you have ever tried before! The colour range is amazing, they are so pigmented and they come in a range of finishes! I am an absolute beginner in the eyeshadows and have only recently jumped on the bandwagon but i love each and everyone of the ones i own!

I have never tried the pigments, but was thinking of picking up a neutral coloured one such as vanilla or naked and use it is a base or highlighter.
Glitter:Never used, dont think i would want to either.

Eye Kohl:
Never tried the eye kohl, think there are some amazing eye liners that can be purchased from drug stores at a reasonable price.
Chromaline:I have never used nor know what this is?!

Never used, but i am definately going to pick blacktrack up!
Liquid Last Liner:Never used.
Lustre Drops:Never used.

False Lashes:
I adore false eyelashes and I definately plan to try out the MAC ones very soon!
ProLash Mascara,Zoom Lash Mascara,Plush Lash Mascara, Dazzle Lash Mascara:Never used, am i missing out?
What has been your favourite Mac collection to date?Since i started collecting my favourite MAC collection has either been hello kitty or colour craft. I loved the mineralized products and the lipstick from the colour craft collection & most of the products from hello kitty!
Which Mac collection, in your opinion, do you think was disappointing, if any?From collecting MAC products i would say in my opinion the most disappointing collection to date would be the style black collection. I know so many bloggers and gurus have loved this collection, but there was nothing that i really found appealing from this collection.
What products do you think Mac are missing?As most people would say a really good mascara!

So thats it! It makes me realise how many products i am yet to try out & havent used just yet! & the amount of products there is that you know you wouldnt want to try!
I tag each and everyone of my wonderful followers (all 14 of you!) to do this quiz! Love you all!
