I have several MAC brushes and no longer use them! I got a brush set at Forever 21 for like $4 and love it way more!!! Foundation,a couple good eyeshadows and lipstick/lipgloss is the way to go!

I don't know their exact prices, but I would get an eyeshadow quad or duo, some lip products (they have pretty nice lipstick) and an eyeliner or 2... I probably went way over $100... Lol

Don't even waste your money on the brushes over $25, seriously. Thats just me though! I would get 1 lipstick, 1 lipgloss, 1 blush, 1 concealer, 1 eyeshadow and 1 powder MSF Natural.

Some eyeshadows and a blush or two.

Not Rachel, but CCO = Cosmetics Company Outlet.

{edited to add...}

I'm going to amend my list a little bit.

* One custom eyeshadow quad ($49)
* 263 brush ($24.50)
* 217 brush, instead of the 239 ($22.50)

Rachel O: What is a CCO? 

Good brushes and good primers are key to awesome makeup application, I'd say! So keep that in mind. Also, keep in mind that Mac's skin care isn't really the best. Maybe search swatches for things you might want! I do this all the time. In order to get an idea of what actually looks good. Get a mac worker to help you out! That is if they are nice at your Mac. Some mac peeps are totally snooty... Anyways! I'd get the studio fix powder, a pretty blush for your skin type, moisture cover concealer, and two eyeshadows. :)

I would probably buy:

1. studio fix concealer
2. 2 different blushes(not sure on the colors)
3. another blacktrack fluidline
4. and probably a blending brush


... if that all adds up to $100 lol

From my experience, and those of other makeup artists (including Kandee Johnson!) don't waste your time on MAC brushes. Although they're high quality, you can get just as good, or better, brushes from ave fun playing around with your new makeup! =)

It's been a while since I've done this...so check with your store first...but I would schedule a makeover and then buy a few of the products you like. I've found colors/products I would never pick up this way. And if you let them know you have a limit - you might talk them into giving you a few pigment samples to take home. Those pigment samples go a long way.
Another way to stretch the $$ is buying pigment samples from the makeup geek blog store. They have samples for around $4.

I am on the fence about the mineralize skin finish...I kinda have my eye on the radiant face trio (in revealed) from victoria secret instead. :) I don't know if they would be the same thing...or if one would be prettier on me.

I'm going to get

*Mineralize skin finish in soft & gentle
*Lipsticks in girl about town and angel
*Fluidline in blacktrack
*Eyeshadow in expensive pink
*Eyeshadow in bronze
*Eyeshadow in all that glitters

Do you think those lipsticks and eyeshadows will look pretty on me? :)

heres my mac eyeshadow dream palette (pictures)

Eye shadow in rice paper and eyeshadow in sushi flowe :)
dazzle glass
mineralized skin finish
studio sculpt concealar
and 1 lipstick :)
hope thats not over the limit lol

Wow, $100.. I guess it depends on what makeup products you currently use and are happy with, and what you're most interested in from MAC. As a makeup artist, I know that what I own the most of from MAC are color products such as eyeshadows, lipstick, lipglass, pearlglide eyeliners, blushes and beauty powders, then BRUSHES (because for me, they're the best), and PRO mixing mediums (not sure if you live anywhere near a pro store) such as the eyeliner and water based. Really, you can't go far wrong with a custom quad, eyeliner, blush and lipstick. For eyeshadows, it depends on what finish you're looking for, but staying pretty neutral, I'd go with Honey Lust, Satin Taupe, Club and Sketch. For lipstick, maybe Syrup or Cosmo which are beautiful mid-pinks that would look good on you. Fleur Power is a great peach-pink matte blush, or Ablaze (which is a deep dusty rose) if you want something a little darker, but you have to use with with a light hand.

Awesome thread! I have never stuck to a limit in Mac or Boots as it is sooo hard! I would get 2 new paint pots; Painterly and Woodwinked (maybe Constructivist too!). Mac eyeshadows-sketch, shroom, taupe. :D If there is any money left then I would buy a 222! I love the Mac brushes, but was thinking of getting the sigma flat top kabuki brush as Mac dont do an equivalent one!
