MAC Cosmetics (MAC standing for Make-up Art Cosmetics) was founded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo in 1984 with the assistance of chemist Vic Casale. The first U.S MAC store opened in 1991, in New York. The company's products were initially aimed at professional make-up artists, but are now sold to consumers worldwide. Estée Lauder Companies acquired a controlling interest in MAC in 1996, then completed their acquisition of the company in 1998.

Liquid -MAC - Pro Longwear Foundation

on 5/30/2017 5:28:00 AM


Bought this not too long ago but this foundation is hands down the WORST foundation I have ever tried in all my life. I got matched perfectly with NC40 by a mac artist at the store so initially, I was excited because of the perfect color match. I wore it the next day and as the day went on the foundation began to feel kind of itchy. Once I got home and I washed my face I noticed several clustered bumps on my face. Mind you, I do not have acne prone skin and only get one or two minor pimples during the time of the month but that's about it, nothing major. It ended up becoming a rash and so I had to return it. This has never happened to me with any other foundation. It was awful! Be careful if you have sensitive skin. I don't have sensitive skin but can't imagine what this would be like for someone that does. Definitely would never recommend.

Concealers -MAC - Pro Longwear Concealer

Those of you with sensitive skin - be VERY careful with this stuff!
If you have normal skin, I definitely recommend this concealer. It's versatile and fantastic for the price. But if you're prone to eczema, watch out for a flare-up!

I used this product for three days under my eyes before it caused my eczema to flare up, and I was VERY impressed.

Great coverage, covered 75% of my VERY dark blue under-eye circles which is a hell of a lot more than most concealers will do.It somehow made my under-eye area look brighter than most other products.

Great satin-matte finish. Light and not cakey. Lasted all day with no need for a touch up and little creasing. Pump dispenser is fantastic though it is tricky to control how much product comes out.

However, it wasn't ideal for layering as it began to get drying if I put more product on; not a huge issue as one layer was enough for excellent coverage.

Now, the caveat; something in this concealer triggered my undereye eczema like nothing else. My eyes were red, swollen, and itchy after using it for a short period of time. Perhaps it was way too drying - it is not, after all, a particularly moisturising concealer; instead it gives you longevity.

Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation

on 5/30/2017 12:09:00 AM


If you ever want to try a MAC foundation, start with this one, you can't go wrong. It covers face and body and you get a huge bottle 50ml compared to the average foundation 30ml.

It has a sheer coverage with a satin finish but it is buildable to a moderate coverage. I find it covers all my flaws and pores and leaves my skin looking natural, radiant and the shade stays true, no oxidisation or fading all day. Moisturising and long wearing, this truly is a good start before you fall down the rabbit hole which is MAC.

Make sure that you do know your shade and if possible go get colour matched just don't walk out with half the shop with a melted credit card, it really isn't hard to do.

I was lazy and ordered on line, ended up with three bottles of this foundation before I matched my face. It wasn't a waste though because my shade changes through the seasons and now I mix and match the bottles and use the darker shade to help contour. I am N1 because my skin is very fair with pink undertones but I purchase N3 for summer. I apply N3 first and then blend N1 over the middle of my face to lighten, it is a great way to frame your face and help with contouring. In Winter I just stick to N1 and some bronzer.

I also use this foundation all over my neck, décolletage, bare shoulders and anywhere else I want a bit of colour, this foundation does'nt transfer.

Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus

on 5/29/2017 6:03:00 AM


This is my makeup bag wonder product! I couldn't live without it. I use this as a powder foundation for days when I just want some light coverage, then for full on make up days this is the perfect flawless skin power couple when paired on top of MAC Studio Fix fluid foundation. Love it!

Liquid -MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

on 5/29/2017 2:31:00 AM


This is one of the weirdest foundations ever. I have been using this because it's in my project pan and I have completely used it up. I use a beauty sponge and it applies medium coverage (but it's buildable). It is one of those foundations where the primer must work well with it - I have found that silicone primers work best with this. The reason for this is because the foundation is slightly drying. At the end of the day, some of my foundation has faded and my face, in general, looks dry and crusty. If I use a mattifying primer with this, it will just be worse.

The price point for this isn't bad and I would suggest that you wear this on shorter/low-key days.
