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 -Cremesheen - Shy Girl

on 2/22/2018 7:39:00 AM


Shy Girl is a lovely shade of peachy-nude lipstick with a cremesheen finish. It does have a pearlescent quality with very fine shimmer laced in the lipstick but this is not prominent on the lips, it just emphasises the glossy finish of the shade. I do find this shade to be a little more sheer than my over MAC cremesheed shades however, though it does looks glossy and natural on the lips. I believe this shade would suit a wide variety of skin tones, particularly fair and warm tones. It looks very natural and work-appropriate. It is definitely a shade to pull out when you want to look put-together but not overly made up. This wears nicely for around 5 hours on the lips. It doesn’t bleed or feather, though it does sink into liplines a little bit once it has been on for a while. It will need to be reapplied after eating or drinking. If layers easily without looking cakey. It is a lovely everyday shade and I would definitely recommend it.

Concealers -MAC -Pro Longwear Concealer

on 2/22/2018 5:33:00 AM


My HG concealer, went true numerous bottles and it’s one of the few products I repurchase. I have dry skin never thought it would work but it does, just keep your skin moisturized. Good coverage, great color range (I use NC25) does not irritate my eczema sensitive skin and doesn’t settle in fine lines.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation


Excellent coverage, lovely clean finish, but boy does it transfer - if you dab at your face with so much as a finger, it comes off on to it. That's my only grouse. I set it with a pressed powder to mitigate this. Otherwise another reliable MAC product.

Eye Shadow -MAC -Frost - Paradisco

on 2/21/2018 1:46:00 PM


Yes, Paradisco is not the most pigmented eyeshadow that MAC offers. The slight orange toned, coral pink also tends to make my eyes look yellow and sickly however at $6 a pan, it's reasonably priced even if one considers it a dud.

But wait, look at that shimmer! Follow me fellow readers and let's be adventurous...Go get your fave highlight brush and slap some on your face!

It's a beautiful and subtle highlight on my nc40 face, especially UNDER a similarly toned pink blush. Notice that I emphasized under as it tends to show my texture if worn OVER a blush (as do most of my eyeshadows when worn as highlight). Some thing about it is reminiscent of NARS famous orgasm blush but Paradisco is more flattering on me as 'O' leans more cool.

I would not repurchase but I will enjoy using my stash in an unconventional way.

Lip Gloss -MAC -Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick

on 2/20/2018 7:36:00 PM


Of course this gloss is a little on the pricey side, it is MAC after all. The color is lovely. I have several tubes of the "Dazzle Glass" product and this is my most worn shade. I usually where it when my hair is up because this stuff is crazy sticky.
