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.

Blush -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Blush - Peaches

on 12/16/2018 5:13:00 AM


Love it!
Very very beautiful color, really is like the color of a peach. A bit pink in the warm orange color makes it go well with almost every lipstick color that I have (except for hot pink and dark red or blue based red). The texture is amazing either, very soft and velvety. I used to hate powder blush because it leaves my cheeks cakey and emphasize my pores but this one change my mind. It glides easily and evenly on the skin without making the foundation cakey tacky or anything's like that.
But it's too sheer even for a sheer one. I'm all for the no makeup makeup look (or else I would have bought the Melba one instead) but I have to swirl my brush several rounds in the blush and keep applying 3 4 times to have some light color on my cheek.
But overall this one is really amazing for a natural look and is worth the money

Pressed Powders -MAC Cosmetics -Studio Waterweight Pressed Powder

I wish I liked this more – I had really high hopes for this formulation (esp given how much I love the liquid foundation and concealer from this line). While the formulation feels nice on the skin and doesn’t give kick-up, it just didn’t look natural or sheer on my skin and no amount of setting spray helped it along. This is also a “double shade” compact – half is a nice more translucent or lightly pigmented side while the other is more peach/pink/golden brownish (depending on your shade chosen/purchased). I suppose its meant to use one side or the other, or to swirl all together. This was problematic for me as it just leaned too red on me. I even exchanged my med for a lighter shade and I got the same redness issue.

Its too bad this didn’t work for me, especially given that it cost me $36,00 for the compact which is now just sitting in my drawer.

Concealers -MAC Cosmetics - Studio Waterweight Concealer

This concealer is EVERYtHING! If you have dry, aging, or textured skin and you want an eye brightener with coverage, RUN and get this stuff!

This has a satin second skin effect, along with buildable coverage. While it does work to hide blemishes and redness, I find it really shines best as highlighting tool for under eyes (the triangle if you will). Prior to this discovery, I tried many concealers for under eye brightening/highlighting in shades lighter than my foundation – Nars, UD Naked, Colourpop, Tarte Shape Tape, you name it. All those left me dry looking. This one looks so natural and brightening and seems to impart hydration as well.

Liquid -MAC Cosmetics -Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF30

on 12/16/2018 1:59:00 AM


I had given up on MAC foundations a while ago – not bc they are bad, b tbc as I’ve gotten older I find they do not suite my dry and textured skin. Enter this foundation!

I am a huge fan of this foundation. Its light as a feather and feels like second skin, yet it still does have some good coverage. This has more coverage than I expected it to – you could say more than a BB or CC but less than Nars Sheerglow. I LOVE the dewy-ness I get wearing this, and my skin just looks so much healthier than with other heavier foundations. The color stays true and doesn’t oxidize at all, and I get no streaking or fading. I also feel as if I am getting a boost of hydration, and the additional SPF is great.
