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 -Studio Face and Body Foundation

on 6/22/2018 8:32:00 PM


I have normal skin and wear N1 in this foundation. I prefer light coverage that allows my freckles to show, and will not tolerate heaviness from any product. This is my foundation when I require one. This can be layered without detection. Shake well. I apply it over Dr. Carver's Miracle Serum, then moisturizer (various brands from drugstore, ranging from 30spf to 50spf, depending on how I feel), using my hands in downward strokes for each product so that facial hair lays flat, applying foundation only where needed -- above brows, nose and around nostrils, nose-to-mouth lines, old acne scarring on neck (two coats). It is undetectable in northern, natural light. I forget I have it on. No powder is required. It does not settle in lines. It's still on at the end of the day. My skin has never had a reaction to it. I always require the addition of Cerave eye cream under eyes and Maybelline NY Better Skin Superstay Concealer in Light.

Eye Makeup Remover -MAC -Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

on 6/22/2018 12:03:00 AM


Wouldn't recommend for sensitive eyes. It makes mine burn and go red. Removes makeup ok but it takes more product and work to get makeup off than my others. The packaging has a child proof top that is hard to get open, and hurts my hands.You have to press down firmly while turning the cap. Not great last thing at night when I can barely keep my eyes open!

Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Fix + Matte Mattifying Mist

on 6/21/2018 2:55:00 PM


This is a very good setting spray for oily skin. It keeps me matte longer and gives a nice finish to the skin. Typical MAC pricing...not a bargain but not outrageous. Nice light smell too. The mist could be finer. A keeper for sure.

Mascara -MAC -Zoom Lash in High Esteem

on 6/21/2018 3:25:00 AM


I got this in the "Little MAC" edition around the holidays and have just gotten around to using it. I'm not a big fan of MAC mascaras, but the color of this appealed to me. It's a charcoal grey, quite dark, with a muted dark blue cast and a subtle luminescence--no shimmer or glitter, just a sort of glow. It doesn't excel in length or volume, but the amount of it gives is perfect for my aging blue/grey eyes, and the shade really brings out the blue of my eyes. It applies easily, layers well, doesn't get clumpy, doesn't uncurl my lashes, and doesn't flake or smear. It also doesn't irritate my eyes, and it comes off easily with a biphasic remover (Neutrogena). Although this looks rather ashy on the wand and initially doesn't look much different from black on my lashes, the softer shade, blue cast, and luminescence work some magic for me. I would repurchase, and am thinking of getting a backup, which I rarely do. This would be my everyday mascara if it were a staple in MAC's line.
