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.

Blush -MAC - breezy

on 10/21/2017 4:25:00 PM


Lovely colour.

Very finely milled so much so that I can apply with fingers in a pinch.

Doesn't break me out where most products do.

Highly pigmented.

Good staying powder.

Needs a light hand (on my skin tone at least).

Plastic part of packing came off but managed to push it back in. This was after weeks in my handbag though.

Price is reasonable given the quality and that it seems like it will last a long, long time.

Mascara -MAC - Upward Lash

on 10/20/2017 9:11:00 AM


By watching the various reviews here, you can clearly tell that mascara is o so personal. You like it or not, and a lot has to do with the condition of your lashes.
I really really like this one. OMG, I wish I had found it much sooner... it would have saved me lots of money due to the numberous 'mistakes' I bought.
The small brush is ideal to catch every lash, it volumizes, defines and curls in the most beautiful way.
It gives me wonderful lashes without being over the top.
I am so excited - I found my new HG.

Blush -MAC - Dame

on 10/20/2017 6:19:00 AM


Is there any problems about this color? It is so subtle I have to scrape the pan so many times to get the color.
This texture of this blush is quite hard with very subtle color, I don't think it is satin it should be matte. Even it's really nice color in the pan but can not even see on my cheeks, so disappointed with this. Is there something went wrong?

Lipstick -MAC - Lustre in Syrup

on 10/19/2017 10:52:00 PM


Love MAC's Lustre/Sheer line, have several shades, as well as several from Urban Decay's sheer line.. They are a nice switch up from a fully opaque lip, though these can be built up, I prefer to apply them in a sheer manner. They don't last super long, but that's expected since they aren't a matte formula. This translates as a sheer rosy/mauve tone on my NW25ish skin tone... Definitely recommend.

Concealers -MAC - Select Moisturecover

on 10/18/2017 8:28:00 AM


I have used this concealer for about a year. It has slowly replaced my other favourite concealer (Nars). My actual skin tone is C40 (Nars-Barcelona) with neutral undertones. The trick for this to work for me was to buy it in shade NW35 - the pink tones run much darker, and this shade may even be a fraction too dark for my C40 skin. With other concealers I have a never ending battle with creasing and I was surprised that this one, being so moisturising, performed better than the heavy duty ones. It is medium coverage for me with one layer, and naturally brightens my dark circles. I prefer it to the Nars radiant creamy concealer (Ginger) for texture and comfort. Though the Nars matches my skintone better, this is easier to work with as it doesn't dry so fast and coverage is buildable without EVER getting cakey (it literally never cakes on me). And I can have quite oily skin but still I blend this out to my cheeks, forehead, nose etc and sometimes just go without foundation, it sits so nice on my skin, it has truly become a staple. Hydrating, long lasting and glowy. For the ladies who are medium/olive toned, give the NW shades a go. And don't knock it if you're oily like me, it's really is a versatile and effective product if you get the right shade.
