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 -Studio Waterweight Concealer - NW20

on 5/24/2018 9:12:00 AM


I like this concealer, I have it in NW15 and it's great on my fair skin. I use it mainly on my undereye area. I find a tiny bit goes a long way. I only have to use a dab off the end of the applicator most of the time. I think I would waste product if I actually used the dropper. So although 9ml doesn't sound like a lot, I think this will last well. Its a pretty watery consistency, which I prefer over a heavy, creamy formula especially for my undereye area. The reason for 4 Star overall rating is that I do find that this creases veeeery slightly after about 3 hours. I haven't been using a primer, and I've been using a pretty cheap setting powder. Maybe trying it with a primer or a good quality setting powder would help. But I wish it would stay put on its own! Apart from that it's great.

Primer/ Corrector -MAC -Prep + Prime Skin

on 5/24/2018 3:02:00 AM


This is a good product. I don't really have any real complaints. I don't find the shimmer in this to be too obvious at all. It doesn't really blur any fine lines or pores, so if you need that function in a primer, this may not be for you. I also don't think it would work for dry skin all that well, but if you have combination or oily skin, I think it's great. It makes my makeup go on much more flawlessly and makes it last so much longer. I purchased three of these when I was going abroad a few years back, for fear of not being able to find it again. And I'm still using them. They haven't gone bad, spoiled or separated and you really only need a little bit, so one bottle lasts a very long time. I'm not sure I would repurchase, just because I'm a little bored of it at this point and I like to try new products. I'm also not getting any younger and I might move on to other primers that have more of a blurring effect.

Makeup Brushes -MAC -# 239 Eye Shader Brush

on 5/23/2018 11:58:00 PM


Awesome brush worth every cent! The bristles are soft, yet firm and this brush preforms like no other brush I have ever used on the lid! Fantastic brush for packing on colour, minimizing fall out, and help shadows look rich and opaque. The 239 is sturdy, well made, washes easily, retains it's shape, and no shedding. Highly recommend!

Liquid -MAC -Next to Nothing Face Colour

on 5/23/2018 7:38:00 PM


I was so excited for this product as it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for; something sheer, dewy and easy that just evened out my skintone a tad. Sadly the product seemed to weirdly oxidize on me and turned quite orange which I could somewhat stand since it's sheer, but what sadly ruined the product for me was the piling on the skin. I could wait 30-60 min for my skincare to really sink in and it would still find a way to pile like crazy.

Moisturizers -MAC -Strobe Cream

on 5/23/2018 6:28:00 PM


I LOVE this stuff!

It makes my skin look superrrr glowy and plump.

I apply this on my face after moisturizer then with foundation i just apply mainly in areas that need help (redness on cheeks, my discoloration on my smile lines and a few acne spots) and it becomes the perfect glowy no makeup make up <3.

I dont think i’ll be able to put this down this summer!

10/10 would recommend to anyone with normal-dry skin. Not sure how this would work on oilier skin types.
