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.

I read countless reviews before taking the plunge and shelling out for the small size of this product because it is sooooooo expensive. But, I figured I must be missing out on something extraordinary so I indulged my curiousity and bought the coconut scented one. Not a lot of product for a huge price and I would get over it much faster if this was doing something spectacular for me but it's not. It does hydrate my skin, a huge plus. But I actually prefer Pixi Milky Mist to this for hydration which I also find to be super calming on my skin. As far as intensifying eyeshadows... I've used a mist of rose water to do the same and it worked just fine as well. As a setting spray, I didn't find this any better than anything else I've tried. Finally, the spray nozzle isn't the finest I've tried and for the price it could be better. Despite all of that, this is a good product, just not worth the price which is why I've given it a rating of only 3 lippies. I'm not a huge fan of MAC products in general and frankly I find their sales staff incredibly difficult to deal but those facts aside I do evaluate the product on it's own merits.

Top 3 good qualities about this:
1. Hydrating
2. Scented options
3. Locking nozzle dispenser

Great color on my warm complexion. Looks good with NARS Orgasm gloss on top. Also like it with MAC Melba blush.

Fragrances -MAC - Velvet Teddy Shadescents

I received a set of the new Shadescent samples which a recent order and this was was the first one I tried. It's almost a dupe for Tom Ford's Tob. Vanilla; if you like that, run, do not walk to try this. My husband went bananas for this scent; he said I smelled like the most expensive Cuban cigar in history. I am giving it to him-I like to wear men's cologne, but this aggressively masculine, and you have to love the tobacco note. I'm not as talented as many people here are when they describe fragrance, but the scent does last and seems complex.

Wowzer! Just when I said im not buying any stupid mac collections I gave in lol..this color is so unique its a hot pink but leans on red its a special kind of pink. Now the lipstick says matte but wears more thin but its buildable. The gloss just wow it's the steal your man type of color ...very juicy in appearance very sexy. Overall I am happy with this purchase.

Lipstick -MAC - Russian Red

This is my go-to red along with Armani's 400. It's the perfect Hollywood red that suits anybody. Long-lasting and matte, it really is one of the best lipsticks I've ever come across and trust me, that's saying something :) I like to blot and apply it again a few times and I find that I don't have to reapply for the whole night. Make sure your lips are well exfoliated and moisturized. This formula is drying.
