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 -Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation

on 1/21/2018 8:36:00 PM


This used to be my favourite foundation, but I’ve realised that it’s not sweat proof at all. This foundation is awful if it’s raining, no matter if I use high end primers and setting sprays, this foundation will run off my face in thick chunks when water touches it - I live in the UK, where it rains a lot, so this is not ideal. I have a problem with my forehead sweating quite a bit also, and this foundation is terrible for that.

What I will say though is that if it’s not raining and I’m having a good day where I’m not sweating, the foundation is long lasting without me having to touch up. The finish is nice, but not amazing. You can tell you have foundation on when you wear this so it’s not strongly recommended if you prefer that more natural finish. Sometimes it can be a little chalky. I have 2 bottles left, so I will finish those but I don’t think I will run out to buy this again, given my needed criteria.

Lipstick -MAC -Matte - Kinda Sexy

on 1/21/2018 4:34:00 PM


One of my favorite pinky nude MAC lipsticks.. I'm NW25, very neutral, lite brown/reddish hair, brn eyes, and this is very flattering. I didn't think it would look great on me, I do prefer mauve shades in mid tone to darker colors, but stick to peachy nudes when I wear a lighter this was a chance that paid off, and isn't too pink on me. I'm not big on matte lippies, but this one is comfortable enough..MAC and UD make the best non drug store lipsticks in my opinion, and I have tons of each, and will keep purchasing! Definitely recommend.

Lipstick -MAC -Lipstick in Paramount

on 1/21/2018 12:58:00 AM


This is my current favourite lipstick, after long analysis of how much I like the others when I'm using them. I realized that even though I thought it was dark, I hate lighter and brighter shades. When I wear it I feel perfected and timeless and it doesn't look stupid or wear off immediately. I don't get that vibe with any of my coral, pink, red, or brown shades. This fantastic brick red/brown shade has literally nothing wrong with it and there is NO dupe for it. I've tried. The only thing I would like is to find a lipstick one shade lighter, but with the exact same ratio of red to brown. All other lipsticks are either too red, too brown, or ruin it with purple. This has no purple so it is not a vamp shade. Of course there are a few other lipsticks I will put on for fun on a whim but this is the best thing I have! Using other lipsticks makes me appreciate this one even more.

Pressed Powders -MAC -Blot Powder - Medium/Dark

on 1/20/2018 6:25:00 PM


I finally found my shade!! I’m NC20/25 I’ve never been dark/deep in anything in my life except this. I’m barely medium-light in most powders. I would say this runs pale to an extreme.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

on 1/20/2018 5:36:00 PM


Finding a good foundation is a mission impossible for me these days.I have dehydrated skin and almost all foundations cling to my dry patches and get forehead looks shiney in half an hour.I have little acne scars on my cheeks,dark circles under my eyes and my skin has a pinkish undertone on my cheeks which I dislike,while it looks yellowish above my upper lip
I need something light so that it won't stick to my dry patches,at the same time I need enough coverage to cover redness and acne marcs
The only foundation that works for me is collistar super-moisturizing foundation,it could be my HG foundation if I had it in the right shade.I have it in shade 4(amber) while in all other foundations I use shade 1 or 2.but I couldn't find it in right shade so decided to start looking for my HG foundation in other brands
I started searching and reading reviews and I listed options from each brand that looked good for me.Mac Face&Body was in that list
There's not a mac cosmetic branch in Iran but I saw one in Tbilisi,Georgia..I was in hurry so I had to buy it without testing it.
It's 50mil was 42.5$ and it's 120mil was 58$..I chose 50mil size because I wasn't sure it will work for me
I bought shade 01 and it's the perfect shade for me.I'm happy that it's not yellow or orange.It has neutral tone and thanks to it's sheer coverage I think it can suit all fair-light skins
It has liquid texture.first times,I used a damp beauty blender to apply it but it soaked a lot of product so I had to use a lot of foundation and even then,it gave me very sheer coverage,even less than a tinted moisturizer but now I use brush to apply it all over my face,then I blend it with a damp Beatty blender with soft tapping motions.this way it gives me medium coverage.
It has a natural finish which is my favorite for daily use.not matte,not dewy.unlike most other foundations with sheer to medium coverage it doesn't make my skin look oily and the most important thing is that it doesn't cling to my dry patches and doesn't look cakey at all,even though I sometimes I use huge amounts of it.I use clinique moisture serge or clinique pep start sunscreen & moisturizer or bioderma atoderm cream(which comes in white package with blue pomp)or uriage aquaprectis gelcream as base and it goes well with all of them
It feels light and comfortable on skin.I'm even happy with it's longevity but I dampen my beautyblender with nyx dewy spray or mac preb&prime spray so they may effect longevity of my foundation
The only thing about it which isn't perfect is it's coverage.not bad for daily evens out my skin but isn't enough to fully cover my tiny acne scars or my dark cycles.I use LA girl proconceal in peach shade to color correct my dark cycles,then use caprice concealer..or just use maybelline age rewind concealer alone..sometimes I use mac CC loose powder in lavender shade to set my foundation.I only use it on my forehead,dark cycles and nose because I don't like my face to look too matte and powdery.this loose powder gives me perfect coverage and flawless look that I wanted
All in all I'm very happy with this foundation.there's still a long list of foundations which I'd like to dry but if I wasn't looking for adventure of trying new things,I'd definitely repurchase it,this time in it's 120mil package,which is by the way,very travel-friendly
