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.

Liquid -MAC - Pro Longwear Foundation

on 5/27/2017 12:28:00 AM


awful Foundation, it cakes and it smudges off, it's horrible, it doesn't hide anything that it should, it does not stay on at all, it changes color after few hours.

Liquid -MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15


In a few words, this foundation does not stay put, does not always dry matte, gets greasy, gets cakey, fades, and also it broke me out.
So this was my first ever high-end foundation, and when I first got it about a couple years ago, I was excited. I would actually use it pretty often (I did not reach for it everyday, I didnt want to waste my expensive product for school), and I used to love it. At this point I have to mention that I have oily skin, especially on my nose and the area around it, some random dry patches, a lot of acne scars and also occasional breakouts, as well as a couple permanent pimples and large pores on my nose. My skin is, in general, pretty bad, so I loved this foundation for the coverage it offered. However, after my break from foundations for the sake of (lightweight, effortless and quick makeup), I actually feel like I must have been blind to like this foundation. First of all, it says it has a matte finish, but it never actually dries down on my skin, unless I set it with powder. Second, it says it stays matte and controls oil, but just a few hours after putting it on it gets greasy, cakey and it fades away, resulting in my acne scars becoming visible. Also it creases under my eyes. Last but certainly not least, the worst of all the cons: it broke me out. I finally managed to make my skin look good and vanish my pimples literally today, no joke, I woke up and my skin looked pretty good. No pimples, no dry patches... And then I had a special event this afternoon and I decided to treat myself and wear my expensive foundation. I WISH I had gone with my 3€ essence concealer! When I got home and removed my disaster of a foundation, I could see a bunch o white bumps and some red pimples that didnt exist before. This is not the first time something similar happens, so I figured it is because of the foundation.

Lipstick -MAC - Glaze in Pervette

on 5/26/2017 2:52:00 PM


I bought this a long time ago and recently found it in my makeup kit. I love to layer it over NYX Liquid Lingerie in Embellishment. It gives a nice iridescence to the color. I do agree that it can be gritty. I thought it was just because I have had it for so long but I guess that's just the nature of it, judging by previous reviews. I will still use it because although it feels a little gritty, it does not look gritty and I like the color it gives over Embellishment. I will have to swatch a newer one at MAC before I decide it I'm going to repurchase. But for now, I'm liking it as a topper to other lipsticks. There is very little color payoff on me when used alone.
