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. EstΓ©e Lauder Companies acquired a controlling interest in MAC in 1996, then completed their acquisition of the company in 1998.

Liquid -MAC -Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

on 5/23/2018 1:21:00 PM


I used this foundation about 4-5 times before tossing it! The only redeeming quality about this foundation is the amount of product you get for the price.

I had high hopes for this foundation as I've always heard of it being a staple as far as foundations go, but I was sorely disappointed. Unfortunately, this foundation settles into every fine line you may have and sits on top of the skin, rather than "melting" into it. It gives you a cakey look and others can definitely tell that you are wearing foundation!

I would much rather choose a foundation that gives a "my skin but better" look as opposed to a mask like look.

Would not repurchase and would not recommend. I hate that I even wasted my money on this product.

Lip Gloss -MAC -Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour

on 5/23/2018 12:52:00 PM


I received the Mac Grand Illusion Lip colour in Let's Rock for Christmas. It's a red base with green glitter. It's comfortable to wear, the sparkles last all day, and it makes even my super dry gross lips look juicy and plump.

It slightly feathers and your hair will stick to it, but overall it's a super unique, beautiful colour. I love layering it over red lipsticks or wearing on its own. It also feels very hydrating! An easy way to put a little edge in your look! Highly recommend you try one for some fun.

Palettes -MAC -Warm Neutral 15

on 5/21/2018 11:20:00 PM


This is a solid 4.8 lippies, deserving of a bump to 5. I've only had this for about a week, but I have MAC's x15 Cool Neutral, and love it, so this purchase was a no brainer. 2 of the shades I already have in singles, but that didn't deter me at all from purchasing ..This pic that's shown here is awful, I have a better pic in my profile to check out! I think I could probably have this palette, and Tarte's Clay Play Face Shaping Palette, and be totally content(if I had to choose 2 of course😜). These shadows are pure buttery perfection, zero fallout, zero kick up, blend well, and have great wear time.. It's a suitable palette for anyone who is warm, cool, or neutral, it just WORKS.. It's $65, but a palette you will get tons of use out of. Definitely recommend β£πŸ’„πŸ’‹

Powder -MAC -Mineralize Skinfinish - Medium Plus

on 5/20/2018 12:51:00 PM


Purchased a few months ago this finely milled powder comes in a full compact with a mirror inside as others have noted. On my aging skin it works great, does not leave me looking dry as many setting powders do. Blurs imperfections, leaves a very subtle glow, sets makeup.. Works applied to bare, moisturized skin just as well as over foundation and full makeup. Also, it adds some life to my matte powder blushes. I don't use highlighters, perhaps if you do this powder could be a bit much together with a highlighter..

At any rate it's hard to put my finger on exactly why I like this so much, other than to say it's just a perfect finishing touch to my face. The shade medium plus is on the lighter side of medium, vs. a darker medium as I personally would expect from the name.

It's pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Liquid -MAC -Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

on 5/20/2018 12:34:00 PM


I purchased this at the Toronto airport so ONLY paid $40 tax free πŸ˜„ Absolutely in love... It's full coverage, long lasting & non transferring. A little goes a long way. So even tho I'm paying more than a DS product, it's def worth it as I find I need half the amount per use. This is my HG foundation ATM.
