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 -Mineralize Skinfinish - Medium Plus

on 5/20/2018 12:51:00 PM


Purchased a few months ago this finely milled powder comes in a full compact with a mirror inside as others have noted. On my aging skin it works great, does not leave me looking dry as many setting powders do. Blurs imperfections, leaves a very subtle glow, sets makeup.. Works applied to bare, moisturized skin just as well as over foundation and full makeup. Also, it adds some life to my matte powder blushes. I don't use highlighters, perhaps if you do this powder could be a bit much together with a highlighter..

At any rate it's hard to put my finger on exactly why I like this so much, other than to say it's just a perfect finishing touch to my face. The shade medium plus is on the lighter side of medium, vs. a darker medium as I personally would expect from the name.

It's pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Liquid -MAC -Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

on 5/20/2018 12:34:00 PM


I purchased this at the Toronto airport so ONLY paid $40 tax free 😄 Absolutely in love... It's full coverage, long lasting & non transferring. A little goes a long way. So even tho I'm paying more than a DS product, it's def worth it as I find I need half the amount per use. This is my HG foundation ATM.

Blush -MAC -Powder Blush - Peaches

on 5/20/2018 6:05:00 AM


As the name suggests, peaches is a beautiful peachy warm tone blush. It is very buildable and wears well throughout the day. I will say it is best suited to those who have a more yellow undertone to their skin otherwise, it could pull a bit too orange. Highly recommend it!

Lipstick -MAC -Retro Matte - Ruby Woo

on 5/19/2018 3:48:00 PM


I disagree with the poster that said this looks good on every skin tone. Im nc 20 and it looked horrible on me! I looked like I was Ronald Mcdonald and I wasn't lovin' it! The online mac artist recommended saying away from this color and try Russian Red instead (based on my skintone ) but I bought it anyway. I returned it and purchased Russian Red which looks so much better on me. Ruby woo can look beautiful on some people and I really wish it worked out for me but sadly it didn't. If you get it and it doesn't work out, I strongly suggest to try Russian Red, which is a very slightly darkened red and I found it complimented my skintone perfectly.
