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 -Next to Nothing Face Colour


I recived a generous sample of this. The MAC artist decided to try Medium/ or Medium Plus on me. For reference I am NC41 in studio fix powder, and in the summer NC42 (end of summer) I am a Medium Deep Golden Shade.
Other colors I wear : Bobbi Brown stick foundation between shade 4.0 and 4.2 and on my forehead 4.5-4.75 My forehead is naturally darker then the rest of my face. I also wear Cover Fx in shade golden 40+
So today I tried the Medium and the shade is seems quite natural. I feel like this is almost the Glossier version for Women of color. I have glossier skin tint in Medium and it reminds me of that perhaps with a little more pigment. I find that this is great for a casual look or a very natural daytime look. I think (and I have dry skin) that it needs to be set w/ a powder because of the slip it has.
One option you might consider instead of purchasing this is using the MAC face and body foundation (a very watery natural foundation) and mix it with a bit of luminance. For example I often mix my foundations with the soap and body blurring luminzer or the benefit pink liquid luminzer. not a lot - just a small drop or two.I could see myself using this as a primer or mixing it in with a foundation or using it in combination with my BB stick foundation.
So far it looks very nice. I think if you have sigifanct discoloration or very deep under eye circles you will need to spot correct those issues. I also have sensetive skin that is easily irrated. So I find applying this with my fingers and then just blending it in and setting it with a mildly damp beauty blender prevents some of the piling people complained about while blending it in. If you have very oily skin you will definitely need a strong primer and setting powder to make this work and probably touch up with powder through out/or maybe just forgo this one because I don't think its geared toward those skin types. But I have pretty dry skin that is also mildly senstive (just a little bit shiny in the t-zone)
I feel like this would be absorbed by a beauty blender similar to the way glossier skin tint could be. Over all it just creates a luminous soft coverage. I think that would be good for a natural pulled togather day look if you are having fatigued skin (for me working till 1 am and then returning 730 am at the hospital but still having to try and look pulled togather and polished but exhausted as heck) I will purchase but I will need to get color matched for the powder.

This liner would have been my HG if it wasn't for the fact that it contains micro glitter. I will not purchase.

Highlighters -MAC -Prep Prime Fix+ PinkLite

I got the chance to try this on at Nordstrom today and I was a bit disappointed. It the same concept as the regular mist along with micro-glitter. I was hoping for something similar to the Tatcha mist. I will not purchase.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

This is the perfect foundation if, like me, you're looking for a natural-looking foundation that's light but buildable. It smoothens out your skin for that no-make-up look. It's very lightweight - perfect for warm, humid climates. It's great for everyday wear and holds up fairly well to my usual 12-hour days. Two thumbs up!
