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.

Dazzleshadow Liquid - Not Afraid To Sparkle

I was thrilled to find this product. It consists of small multi-colour glitter in a transparent liquid base. This means that as well as using it on its' own, you can layer it with any shadow for the intensity of glitter you desire. You can apply it under or over eyeshadow. Some caveats - if you use the doefoot applicator over eyeshadow or on an oily eyelid, you will soon contaminate the product. You need to dab a bit on your finger from the applicator and apply it, or possibly use a small, clean brush. Secondly, once it's on, you cannot blend your eyeshadow, or the glitter will become dislodged and end up all over your face. Otherwise, it stays exactly where I apply it throughout the day. This is a fantastic workhorse product for anyone who likes glitter.

This was my first MAC lipstick! When I was a teen my mom took me to a MAC counter so that I could learn how to apply makeup correctly. I still remember getting neutral eyes (Wedge, Orb) and Del Rio lipstick with the mahogany lipliner. Beautiful with a tan. I’m either NC35-40 and now prefer a more natural lip liner (if any) with this for a beautiful plummy, brownish, red. It sounds like it would be dramatic but it’s somehow still somewhat subtle. Unique color.

Prep + Prime Fix+ Rose

I have ridiculously dry skin. I have never used primer, setters/fixers and know nothing about their use or what I'm supposed to do with them. I bought this solely because for preventing that tight skinned feeling this WORKS. The original versions strong plastic chemical scent repulses me, both on myself and others. The rose scent is too close to the rose perfume some grandmas like and too strong so I went with the lavender which smells more like a lighter with a hint of lavender. The coconut scent smells nothing like coconut. Some don't think this product is essential. As someone whose skin and sense of smell is as fussy as mine this is something I would repurchase. I also love the dewy look it gives your skin which is a task to get for those with extra dry skin.
