Multi-use MAC Items

Hi Beauties - I've been having MANY technological troubles lately. Sorry for the lack of posts!
I've compiled a very short list of a few of my most favorite MAC products! Although the brand can be pricey, here are some products that have multiple uses -- these products are definielty worth the money.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural

-Used to set foundation
-Buffed onto face in place of foundation for a light, matte coverage
-Used to blend out lid color
-Are you getting a little lighter in the winter months? Use MSF to contour cheekbones

MAC Melon pigment

-Used as a lid color (can be used wet or dry)
-Used to highlight cheekbones, this is especially flattering for WOC in place of vanilla pigment
-Used to liven up the lips by applying to the center of the lips after lipgloss

MAC 224 brush

-Used to blend out lid color
-Used to apply highlight to cheekbone & temple area
-Used to apply cream concealer under eyes
-Used to apply a light powder to set under eye concealer

MAC Greasepaint Sticks

-Used as a base to make eyeshadows pop
-To be used as an eyeshadow all over lid
-To be used as an eyeliner

Let me know what some of your most favorite, versatile products are!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar -EDIT

Vex in the City had a blog sale and I managed to purchase an OCC Lip Tar before it was snagged up by someone else!

I can't recall the name of the color right now, but I'll edit when I get home from work...or...when I get home from my pedicure, but its the bright fuschia color (ya'll know I love a fuschia lip!)

The shipping form London was super fast considering the volcanic ash drama that grounded most airplanes. She even added a little something extra in the package for me :-)

The lip tar is in the shade Paegan. Here is a pic:
