MAC Cosmetics

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 Cosmetics -False Lashes Extreme Black

on 2/16/2019 12:18:00 PM

I'm not sure if this formula has improved since the last time I tried it a few years ago. Formula now seems to hold curl and give a pretty feathery effect. The brush is kinda chunky you just gotta maneuver it right and your good. Nice dark separated lashes.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Fusion Pink

on 2/15/2019 3:15:00 PM


I ordered this Lipstick online, for 10 Euro via Amazon/Mac - great bargain, so I took the risk.
Researched the color online beforehand, it looked rather coral-pinkish on women - and a warmer bright pink was exactly what I was looking for.

BUT: It is really strange, I'm a NC35 with and light/medium pigmented lips and the Fusion Pink looks like a warm RED on me. Yes, it has the cooler sparkles, that some of you mentioned, hardly noticeable, but they're there. - and I am sure it is an original product, I have other lipsticks from this range. Consistency, packaging and smell is typical Mac, exactly the same as the other ones I own.

This color is a chameleon somehow obviously.
So I would advise, if you're tempted to order online, to definitely try it in the store first, before you buy.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Matte Lipstick - Velvet Teddy


I usually tend to adore MAC lipsticks, it's rare for me to only just 'like' but I'll go through the reasons why... Firstly the good: Velvet Teddy is a perfect 'nude' shade, it's fairly long-wearing, highly pigmented and not too drying on my lips, despite it being a matte lipstick (keep in mind however I always use a lip scrub and balm before applying). But oddly once applied it morphs into more of a muted brown with less pink compared to how it looks in online pictures or when you take it out of its packaging. Also it does appear different in different lighting conditions - for example outside in daylight it looks amazing, whilst indoors it doesn't look anywhere near as good. An odyssey for sure but I like how this shade looks on me overall and now that I'm almost 3/4 way through mine, I will be repurchasing once it runs out.

Eye Shadow -MAC Cosmetics -Eyeshadow Lustre - Gleam

This is another MAC eyeshadow I did not care for.

I will not buy again.

Too much chunky glitter and too pink for my liking.

Lipstick -MAC Cosmetics -Amplified Lipstick - Blankety

on 2/14/2019 5:23:00 AM


Didnt realy work for me. I was searching for a perfect nude so i decided to buy this one since its not that dark and i have light skin. BUT its was terrible on me . It made me look so weird and sick (i think because it was too pale). Maybe not suitable for neutral light skintones. I would maybe recomend this to someone with warmer skintones or pink undertones. But still there are way better mac lipsticks too try in terms of the finish and texture.
Tried to make it work with lip liners or by mixing it with other lipsticks but nothing worked.
I eventually gave it to my roomate😅
