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.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Satin Lipstick - Snob

on 2/22/2019 6:58:00 PM


I’ve been wearing fenti liquid in uncuffed for months and that is just weird for me since I like to use any and many colors textures brands products etc. (I did usually gloss over it to slightly change it up) Brow & lip are non negotiable makeup items for me. So browsing Ulta in a new pinkish lavender faux fur coat, I was inspired. Bored. I have a million colors but makeup forever 32 and Viva Glam Gaga are 2 closest but not quite identical to this, and who knows where they are in my Sephora explosion of a bedroom. So, in honor of above new coat, I purchased snob lipstick & matching lipglass. The dunce worker was trying to convince me Saint Germaine is wayyyy cooler (mispronounced no less), and they DIDNT HAVE IT in stock . I didn’t care or want or ask for anything dif. Anyway. I needed the gloss to punch it up a bit. Also bought Steppin Out dazzleglass (reviewed separately) as a 3rd coat. It just looks good together. SOOO dif from blah uncuffed and flatters my pale cool skin (NW15-ish) face. Also bonus: it totally makes teeth look WHITE. It’s a blue pastel bright yet light pink. Satin ain’t my fave but with all the hoopla I put on top it’s just fine. continued >>

Lip Gloss -MAC Cosmetics -Dazzleglass - Steppin' Out

on 2/22/2019 6:37:00 PM


I almost passed on this since I had a bad experience with a non-doe foot (albeit Physicians Formula) *brush* applicator gloss. But it’s MAC so I’m sure I’m good. I was purchasing the matching stick & glass in Snob. I’ve been wearing Fenty in Uncuffed since pre-FALL. I own literally minimum 200 various lip color items and for me to stick to one color for months on end is absurd. That is what led me to snob. I needed a bright change. I own similar but not the EXACT hue which may sound psycho but I guess not to y’all fellow members of MakeupAlley. So, recently being obsessed with Goldfinch glass — another shiny glimmer of hope in this bleak world — I was wearing over the Fenty sometimes — and wanting a CHANGE — this caught my eye. Well how couldn’t it. It looks cray. So I’ve been layering snob lipstick and lipglass, with steppin out as the shiny beaming cherry on top. Worn alone, it’s not as crazy as it looks in the tube, it’s very nice — but it punches up the above combo to another level. A tooth whitening combo for sure. Love it and hope the brush applicator doesn’t splay out in every possible direction like the physicians formula one did, rendering it garbage bound.

Makeup Brushes -MAC Cosmetics -#129 SH Short Handled Powder/Blush Brush

Beautiful brush especially after wash. I threw my old real Techniques Brushes and I kept this beautiful brush in my bag to use it tomorrow for blush, powder and contour. I have the natural bristles one. I love natural bristles because they give a sophisticated finish and they last forever.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Powder Kiss Lipstick - Devoted To Chili

on 2/21/2019 1:41:00 PM


Devoted to chili is a gorgeous shade of orange red. Application is easy one swipe. Hence 2 stars. Formula is severely drying makes my lips peel every time i wear it. In general i find Mac lipsticks super drying but this is awful . Lip balm no help . Maybelline mattes are similar to powder kiss but non drying for me .
