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.

Lipstick -MAC -Satin Lipstick - MAC Red

I love love this lipstick! Its very pigmented and isn't drying like Ruby Woo. It lasts for about 3 to 4 hours and its a perfect true red. If you like creamier red lipsticks then I would recommend this one!

Eye Shadow -MAC -Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

on 1/16/2018 7:58:00 PM


Why Mac why? I’m such a fan of Mac eyeshadows and lipsticks and I had high hopes for this cult favorite, but it just doesn’t work for me.
I have sensitive combination skin with fairly oily eyelids.
As a primer, this does not cut the mustard. It creases after an hour on me and it seems to dull my shadow. It DOES camouflage veins so, there’s that.
As a shadow it unfortunately fails as well. It goes on too sheer to make any sort of impact and layering it makes it go on patchy. Putting it on over my primer caused it pill so there is no way to increase its opacity or longevity.
I’m super sad this didn’t work out! Sorry Mac!

Lipstick -MAC -Russian Red

on 1/16/2018 7:39:00 PM


LOVE IT! Perfect red -- just the right amount of brightness, not too orange, or coral, a true red. The finish is matte, but it's not drying. Easy to apply, doesn't feather, wears long. It has just a tad of a cool undertone, that makes your teeth look whiter without the colour leaning towards ruby.. I truly believe it will work with any skin tone. A++

Eye Shadow -MAC -Paint Pot in Let's Skate!

on 1/16/2018 3:22:00 PM


For myself, I loved the colour and found it such a cute wash of colour! Sadly, the glitter in it ended up irritating my eye lids! I’ve never had such a weird reaction, and do not have sensitive skin by any means! It burned almost! I believe it was because the glitter wasn’t finely milled enough and would scrape my eye lid!

Lipstick -MAC -Whirl Matte Lipstick

on 1/16/2018 2:21:00 PM


just tried a tube of this in the "baby MAC" offerings. nice-sized mini for $10. LOVING this color on my lips! i have lips that are two different colors (upper lip is deep mauve and bottom lip is a watermelony-pink/brown). whirl is a beautiful neutral on me and acts as a perfect nude for my NC45 caramel brown complexion. it's a matte formula ... i would prefer it in a creme sheen, but it isn't overly drying. nice color for us brown women! will definitely have this in my arsenal from now on.
