Okay so Im about to do some makeup shopping and I am completely torn between MAC and NARS! Which products from each brand do you prefer?? Who has the better blushes, lip glosses etc?? I need a second opinion.. Thanks!

I never stick to just one brand for my make-up. I have a MAC eyebrow pencil which I love, because it's more ashy (less copper) tinted than most eyebrow pencils. But other than that I can't really say.

I adore my MAC lipstick, but I'd say talking to each of the counter assistanbts about what you really want out of your makeup!

What it comes down to, is selection. MAC has way more selection than Nars. However, depending on what you're shopping for, I muchhh prefer the quality and texture of Nars face products, and I also think that MAC's lipglass is way better than NARS' lipglosses :) I'm torn! I do prefer NARS' quality, but MAC just has more selection. Ugh, to conclude this rant, if you want a face product, choose NARS, and if you want a new lip gloss, choose MAC. And if it's anything else, just go with the flow :)

MAC always released fab & fun collections, Not Pricey, and more colorful than NARS. Mac lipstick is all about color and texture, standing out is the DRY matte texture. *MAC glass is better :)

NARS, Recommand foundations & blushes! they are definitely high quality and pigmentation, natural nude tones, LIPs are completely matte but not moisturizing much.

hmmmm well I suggest Bobbi brown lipsticks lol

i just love love love MAC! they have an impressive range of makeup in awesome different colours! I'm sure NARS is good too but i never really do like their colours! but i really think its just down to choice and what kind of shades you want for your skin tone! for me, MAC just has all the colours right for my natural tan :)

I go to NARS for foundation and MAC for eye shadows... As for lipsticks, I don't have a preference, I tend to gravitate towards any brands that have nice shades

I love MAC for foundation, gel eyeliner, lipsticks, lip glosses, and "solutions" such as priming lotions, finishing powder, and Fix+ spray is one of my must haves. NARS just recently came out with the Andy Warhol inspired collection and I think all of those products look really cool. I prefer NARS for bronzer/illuminator/blush etc. only because I had a bad experience with my MAC bronzer. For kinda an all in one, I would go with NARS' liquid illuminator in Orgasm. I also like their powder in Super Orgasm :)

I Love both brands! I think Mac has the best lipsticks and highlighters but Nars is better for Blushes and bronzers:)

Nars, of course! Is the only brand you've found a makeup base identical to my skin tone.

I'll tell you all a little secret- they're probably owned or supplied by the same company with the same products- just different packaging. Next time you google, check out how many cosmetic companies L'Oreal owns. :)

I use MAC on my clients because they have a lot of things that I like from them. I'm sure NARS got some top-quality stuff, they're just not that accessible for me. However, I'm pretty open to purchase their stuff once my income exceeds.

MAC. Just prefer the texture, the denser coverage. Great color range too!
