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.

Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot - Groundwork

on 10/16/2017 12:35:00 PM


I saw it all over the internet and bought it last week. It's the perfect light brown hue for my light-medium skin. It definitely looks super natural, so if you like a bold eye look, it's not for you. It's great for days where I don't want to make it obvious that I'm wearing eyeshadow: just gives more depth to my eyelids. You can also use it as a sheer tone for an easy smoky eye. I'm a fan of cream eyeshadows, and anything that I can work all over my eyelids with my fingertips or a brush without making a mess or having to be precise. This is just perfect. Love it!

Blush -MAC - Sheertone Blush in Blushbaby

on 10/15/2017 3:41:00 AM


Blushbaby...what can I say? This is a gorgeous rosewood, muted pinky brown blush which I believe is a universally flattering shade. This is my holy grail and I use it all the time, in all seasons. Previously I used UD's afterglow blush in Fetish, which gorgeous as it is, I realised it was slightly too pink. This is more of a neutral blush with enough pink and enough brown to give a healthy flush to the skin. This is the blush that literally goes with ANY makeup look and if you don't have it in your collection...what are you doing? How are you living? The formula on this blush is perfect too. Despite being a sheertone, it is very buildable and will never look powdery or patchy. I use my RT blush brush for a wash of colour and my RT sculpting brush for a more pigmented application. Both ways, this blush looks beautiful and makes me look like I'm healthy and happily flushed. Girls what are you waiting for? Get this - especially if you are warmer more olive toned. This will suit you just perfect!

Lipstick -MAC - Matte - Taupe

on 10/14/2017 5:43:00 PM


I bought this because many reviews say this is a great shade for darker complexions, and I'm still looking for the perfect beige/neutral-nude for lipstick collection.
Matte Taupe is a tan-nude on me which unlike many neutrals doesn't disappear against my MAC C40 skin tone or make me look ill, and has a bit of a retro '70s look which I quite like. It works well with my staple blush shade (Bobbi Brown Tawny) or bronzer, but sometimes can look a little yellow.
The texture is off-putting for me though; it's very matte and very drying. I find I've got to add something on top to make it comfortable. Bobbi Brown's Brownie, another shade I rarely wear on its own, gives a hint of mauve that softens the yellow tinge, and adds a creamy texture and finish to give a more flattering and wearable nude.

Liquid -MAC - Face and Body Foundation

on 10/14/2017 1:32:00 PM


I'm 47 yo, combo skin, with no acne or acne marks, and no major wrinkles yet.. This foundation, as well as MAC Waterweight, and Becca's Aqua Luminous Foundation, are the only 3 foundations I have ever liked enough to repurchase over and over.. I like all 3 for different reasons, and I like Face and Body for the satin finish, healthy luminous look it gives, and that it's build able if needed... None of the MAC or Macy's near me sell the larger size anymore, not sure why, but the smaller bottle is $29, and lasts quite awhile for me. I hate foundation, and I don't hate this, or the other two I mentioned. I prefer to apply this with MAC's #187 duo fibre brush(Sonia Kashuk brand from Target sells an amazing duo fibre brush for under $14) as I feel I get the lightest, most luminous, outcome, with plenty of coverage, which is important for my age and skin type. Definitely recommend.

Concealers -MAC - Studio Finish Concealer


I find this works best if I apply it with my fingers so the product gets warm and a creamy consistency. Covers my acne scars well enough and good for my under eye area. A little goes a long way. Other concealers I have tried do not have good coverage like this does.
