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.

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.

Eyeliner -MAC -Brushstroke Brushblack Pen

on 2/20/2018 7:33:00 PM

I bought this as a type of a replacement for Rebeleyes (DC’d gel pen). Really they are nothing alike. I recently bought a back up because I do really like it which is saying a lot since the last Pen I liked was Kvd Trooper (~Same price point Kvd is $18 & MAC is $21). I normally hate pens. They dry out quickly but I’ve had this for a month & it’s still good. If this lasts 3 months it will be HG!! My makeup comes by dearly for me I can’t afford a $20 eyeliner every month but I wanted a back up since I was at the Mall & my dad was buying (lol!). It doesn’t say it’s waterproof on mac’s website but it is quite resilient & smudge/budge-proof, easy to draw wings, & I can get it at my local Macy’s or$21 makes it along w my other MAC liners (pencils, gel, Liquidlast) about one of my more expensive side of the coin eyelinersw (mufe aqua eyes rivals it but the most expensive eyeliners I have are Charlotte tilbury & EL Little Black Dress dual ended eyeliner was $30). #winning

Eyeliner -MAC -Fascinating

on 2/20/2018 7:12:00 PM


I have 2 of these (YES to rebuy!) this is my secret to looking wide awake & alert I don’t like black on my waterline. I wear rimless glasses & black looks harsh. White is amazing for the lower waterline I encourage you to try it! #winning this pencil doesn’t break down on the waterline & doesn’t tug. <3

Liquid -MAC -Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF30

on 2/20/2018 1:31:00 PM


I have fair skin and it is typically dry. I moisturize my face and treat it with a facial serum (soon I will be purchasing face oil as well) but since switching to this moisturizing skin routine I haven't struggled with dry patches. I bought this make up because it is water based, I really don't like looking as if I have make up on and it is very light weight. When I tried it at the store I was pretty pleased, it looked great on my skin and the color match was perfect HOWEVER day 2 of wearing this product I started seeing dry patches on my skin, specifically the top of my forehead, around my nose and my chin. Now its day 3 and nooo thank you. I am 4 hours into wearing it today and I just checked my face, now it is clinging to my pores and my pores are not even big. So I will be returning. Now to try make up forever water blend! Fingers crossed.
