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.

Powder -MAC -Studio Fix - C30


I love this powder it is the only one that I use and have been using for years now. Underneath it I use my Tonique 20x brightening creme and sunblock to make sure my skin is really well moisturized and protected and to make sure that the powder sticks well. Also use the lip pencil from MAC and love it! Great products!

Mascara -MAC -Upward Lash

on 7/17/2018 4:43:00 AM


I experienced the same as another reviewer here: it was a great mascara when I had the tester but the full size disappointed me completely. I like the small wand and the sleek packaging but that's about it. Where the tester gave me separated volumised lashes, the full size is only clumping up my lashes and crumbles (and I only just opened it two weeks ago). It also seems that more lashes loosen while removing this mascara, probably because this mascara is so drying on them. I tossed it in the garbage bin today. Unfortunetaly we don't have return policies in my country for makeup. You're not allowed to return makeup items whether it;s drugstore or high end, they wont't take it back. They can learn from the American customer service that's way more customer friendly.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

on 7/16/2018 8:48:00 PM


I tried NC15, NC20 and NC25 for MAC Studio Fix Fluid. The two latter ones are so orange and turn more so over time. The counter girl had brown skin but her foundation looked like umpa Loompa coverup. I gave it a second lippy because it matifies the skin. My skin looked pretty corpse like in this foundation. It makes
my face itchy. Thumbs down!!

Blush -MAC -Dollymix

on 7/16/2018 8:28:00 PM


On bad days I have rosacea flare-ups. Dollymix on my cheeks perfectly matches the color of my rosacea, not a look look that I like.
For the reference my skin is NC25.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Face and Body Foundation

on 7/16/2018 3:57:00 PM


By the end of the day, I can't tell if my foundation is still on or not, it's very subtle coverage. It will lessen the redness on your face and blends in really nicely with your skin. If you are ok going without foundation and want a little extra something-something, this would be your foundation.

It is pretty much useless on acne; you have to conceal spots separately.

The packaging is the worst, it gets so dirty and gross.
