I’m a fan of miniature sized version of my favorite products. Are you? That’s why when I spotted MAC Makeup Ready Skin Kit (Price: 35usd) on their counters I wanted to get one ASAP. But of course I had to sleep it over, around 3 nights before going back to buy it. I’m trying to control impulsive buys.

So going back to minis. I love em because as someone who LOVES to try new things, I can’t seem to finish a full-sized. Ever. Since 2012. Can you relate?

Review at the end of this post!

For the price of 35usd, there are 2 key products that make it all worth-it:

  1. Strobe Cream
  2. Prep+ Prime Fix

Both having 30ml, that’s a lot of product for what it’s worth. A full size of the MAC Strobe Cream is already 56usd on its own.

I love mixing my foundations with the strobe cream or use it under or over makeup to achieve that ethereal glow. While the Prep + Prime Fix sets everything in place. The compact size of the bottle makes it handy to bring anywhere to refresh my face. Both are never oily nor sticky even in our hot & humid climate.

Now I’m only wondering if I can recycle it so I can transfer from the full-sized version. Hmm. 

Will I repurchase? Definitely. Love these mini-sets forever and I love MAC! Individual product reviews soon? Yes? 🙂
