MAC Cosmetics

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.

Moisturizers -MAC Cosmetics -Complete Comfort Creme

on 12/13/2018 3:24:00 PM


You only can purchase this online at a Macys or Nordstroms or at a Mac stand alone store! I couldnt find this on the Mac USA website. Anyways I love the smell of this cream. Its very nostalgic. I will always remember the smell. Its fresh and tin bit floral. Very elegant. The texture is smooth and thick but it does not feel thick on the skin. It does feel tacky after putting it on but it does set into the skin. It feels comfortable and does not irritate my acne prone skin. I use benzoyl peroxide and i need to put a cream on top of that to put moisture back. I was using the Ultra Repair cream from First Aid, it is a wonderful sensitive skin cream but it pills on top of benzyol peroxide and slightly takes it off. Also it does not go well under makeup or strobe cream. I decided to try this out to put on top of bp and under strobe cream. It works great for now i will update after another month!

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly


This has definitely improved my eyeshadow wear time and helps to prevent shifting and creasing. I have been loving this over using an eyeshadow primer for two reasons: 1) I can see where I put it to make sure I cover my entire eyelid evenly and right down to my lash line, an area where I seem to sometimes miss and 2) it gives my eye area an even color so I don’t have to rely on my eyeshadow alone to cover any discoloration. It dries quickly so those who have problems with creasing will love this because it sets before it can shift.
Even though MAC describes it as a nude beige, I think it is slightly pink in color and is a good choice for cool skin tones or when working with cool toned eyeshadows and palettes.

Brows -MAC Cosmetics -Shape and Shade Brow Tint

on 12/12/2018 7:30:00 PM

I cant believe no one has reviewed this! I love this for a natural brow hair stroke drawing pen liner. I have this in taupe and i have dark brown hair. I love this for drawing in hairs in the front of the brow. I no longer use powder or any brow products other than this. I really love how its like a liquid liner. Though i dont use the shader side where its a powdery stamp type thing. I just use the liner side. Its great for a natural hair stroke technique.

Eyeliner -MAC Cosmetics -Eyeliner Kohl in Costa Riche

on 12/12/2018 7:27:00 PM


This is described as a coffee bean brown. I am C1 nc20 and this does pull a bit red but not in a bad way. I love this as a base all over my lids and blended out. Easy to
Smudge and stays put. Its a very nice single shadow eye look smokey sexy reddish teddy bear brown eyes. On the lower lash id def smudge this because it can pull a bit red by itself just as a line in the waterlines. Its ok looking in the waterlines if im being honest. As an eyeshadow its great. Its a really beautiful alternative to black. Id repurchase.

Its kind of the twilight vampire liner lol for the waterlines if you know what i mean. It doesnt bleed(no pun intended) and It will make your colored eyes pop.

Makeup Brushes -MAC Cosmetics -# 239 Eye Shader Brush

on 12/12/2018 2:10:00 PM


Best eyeshadow brush ever! It's pricey, but is really the best in packing on the shadow on the eye lid and diffuse the edges. The new (synthetic) version is not comparable to this one, so don't be fooled and buy the wrong/new one. I have two back-ups and went on an online hunt to get a fourth one when I heard it was going to be discontinued, but no success unfortunately. If you discover a lonely survivor somewhere, don't hesitate and buy it! Or buy it and sell it to me! :-)
