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.

Concealers -MAC -Pro Longwear Concealer

on 5/27/2018 1:47:00 PM


This is a great concsealer. To be honest so far the best I have tried. It is the only one that covers my dark undereye circles. Shop assistant have advised me to buy a complimentary highlighter with it. It was expensive but worth it. Highlighter helps highlight that dark under eye area and enhances the effect of concealer. If your under eye circles aren't too dark, concealer alone would do the job.

At first concealer felt dry on my skin, but day 3 my skin got sort of used to it and no discomfort at all. Only small min point it did crease a little on me around the under eye wrinkles. Concidering the great coverage, crease bothers me a little less.
Tip: Blend this concealer with the damp beauty blender

Liquid -MAC -Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF30

on 5/27/2018 8:40:00 AM


MAC foundations have always been exceptional in my experience, but this one was a dud. This waterweight foundation is too...watery. It has very little coverage, which I like, but it never seems to settle. It sits on top of my skin and slips and slides all around my face, even after it's been powdered. I dont wear very much, but it's visible and obvious. Another reviewer described this foundation as pilling when layered over other products, and that has happened when I've accidentally applied to much. It delivers a "wet" look instead of a dewy, moisturizing glow. I will not be be purchasing.

Highlighters -MAC -Prep Prime Fix+ PinkLite

A very good fixing/moisturizing mist. It doesn't show oily in my oily/combination skin, neither on application, nor later on. I enjoy the cooling sensation it gives to my skin. It takes about two minutes to absorb. While it does give a glowy finish, by no means does it give you the glow or shine of a highlighter - it is NOT a highlighter. It gives a very natural looking glow.

Concealers -MAC -Studio Finish Concealer


I've been using this since 2005 and hence why I would rate this as one of my Top 10 HG products. Let me share with you why....every few weeks since I was a teen I've been getting acne, just the odd spot here and there but without fail always a blemish left behind! All I have to do to make it disappear (until it does of its own accord) is apply a tiny bit of Studio Finish Concealer in NC42 with a tiny 2mm wide arts and craft paint brush (no you didn't misread that!) literally dabbed on the blemish a few times until I can no longer see it. Normal makeup brushes are not fine enough for this imo so an arts/crafts brush for under a dollar from a crafts store works fine for me. I don't wear makeup habitually but this is part of my morning routine I absolutely never ever skip. It lasts until I wash it off in the evening - so long as I don't touch my face, and if that is likely to happen I just be sure to use setting powder, otherwise I'm good. One pot lasts absolutely years, I think I've only had to buy 3 in all these years so definitely worth it. 13 years on and one of the only products I could not be without. 10/10.

Skincare - Face -MAC -Prep and Prime Fix+

Theres something i love about this so much more than other ptoducts. It's very natural and feels heavenly on the skin, but it can be used as so many things. I mainly use mine as a primer, but it can be used for so much more. Bursts of moisture, as a fine anti drying 'setting spray', and to moisten your skin and your brushes without having to get them or your skin all wet. Its amazing. Have only gotten the original scented one so far but I'm hoping to get a flavoured one when i need a new bottle.
