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.

Mascara -MAC -Extended Play Gigablack Lash


I rarely feel compelled to write a review on a mascara because they usually all do one thing on me, without fail- smudge. I have hooded eyes, and every mascara I've tried, yes, including waterproof, has transferred to my eyelid. Except this one. It gives more of a natural look on the upper lashes, but that's okay for my daily use, when I go out I usually wear false lashes anyways. I love this, would totally recommend, and it's well worth the price. An absolute must have for anyone who suffers with transfer or smudging problems!

Mascara -MAC -Bold & Bad Lash Mascara

Decent mascara but dried out after a few weeks. Good volume and lengthening and didn’t flake.

Lipstick -MAC -Velvet Teddy

This is a very pretty color but drying. Doesn’t stay on very long and isn’t moisturizing. A very good neutral for tan/olive skin gals.

Eye Shadow -MAC -Veluxe Pearl - Crystal Avalanche


This isn't what I'd call a high pigment white, at least as eyeshadow, but it works very well as a highlight shade for both the eyes and cheeks. Even on my pale skin a little pops quite a bit, I'd recommend a light hand and quick blending if you try it. I hardly ever hit pan on MAC shades but if I ever do I will absolutely repurchase.

Concealers -MAC -Select Cover-Up

on 11/17/2017 2:06:00 PM


Hands down my favourite concealer. Blends seamlessly, doesn't feel heavy on the skin, and covers wonderfully.

Pretty multipurpose as well - I've used this alone, with a variety of other foundations, BB creams, tinted moisturizers, and it lasts. Never creases, doesn't fade until I take it off at the end of the day. Covers everything from my severe dark circles to mega breakouts. I've even mixed a little bit with my favourite moisturizer to make a great tinted moisturizer of my own.

I could see this not working for oily skin, but I've used it without a setting powder on my dry skin and it works quite nicely.

A little bit pricey, but I've used mine quite liberally every single day since I bought it (about six months ago) and I've got about a third of it left. I find the extra money is worth it for finding a decent shade match.
