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 -Paint Pot in Soft Ochre

Best eyeshadow primer! Apply this product then a light layer translucent powder before your eyeshadow, it makes the blending process easier.

Lipstick -MAC -Cremesheen - Creme Cup


This gives me the perfect nudey pink lip-makes my lips look so smooth! I have light cool olive skin and this looks nice paired with a more neutral lip liner (like MUFE 5C/Mac Stripdown) because it takes away the coolness. This looks especially amazing paired with a simple slightly defined eye. I only wish it were long wearing, but that would take away from the creaminess and lightness of the formula.

Lipstick -MAC -Matte - Tropic Tonic

Perfect bright-yet muted coral shade. It's bright and fresh but not in an obnoxious way. On me it reads a sort of pinky watermelon shade. I love the formula of this-matte but creamy, and the scent is so delicious. I can't wait till it gets warmer to wear this more!

Blush -MAC -Melba


I love this blush! It has the perfect texture to me. Very smooth, not powdery, and always seems to look natural and skin like. It has no shimmer, and thus gives the cheeks a nice natural sculpted look. It is hard to overdo this blush, and even if I apply too much, it sheers out easily. The shade brightens up my light cool olive skin nicely, and wears all day long. The shade goes well with all different types of looks, and is neutral enough to wear everyday. I also love how long MAC blush pans last, I haven't hit pan on any so far!

Pressed Powders -MAC -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light Plus


This powder always seems to emphasize texture/pores on my face that weren't there in the first place. It is not a matte powder, but it does not give me that skin-like finish described by others. It works well with a damp beauty blender under the eyes to set concealer, and I do like the shade (light plus) for my cool pale olive skin.
