Every global beauty phenomenon has to start somewhere, and M.A.C was created out of a need for makeup that photographed true to life. Makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo began creating their own cosmetics in their kitchen, selling them directly to fellow makeup artists as well as models as photographers. Before long, stylists and fashion editors were avid customers and the first M.A.C counter was launched in a Toronto department store in 1984.
M.A.C has always been more than a makeup brand - from its commitment to cutting edge makeup trends and technologies to the sense of community and social justice, M.A.C pushes the boundaries of what a makeup brand can and should be.

Social responsibility is also a core tenet of the M.A.C philosophy, with initiatives such as Viva Glam and the M.A.C Aids Fund raising over $400 million to date, partnering with celebrity spokespeople including Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj to raise funds and awareness.

Recent reviews on M.A.C Cosmetics products
I was looking for a one swipe, my-lips-but-better, look after my lips kinda job.
Hit: One swipe colour
Miss: This stuff is dry (well duh, it's matte) and stuck in any dry lip skin. Not great for air conditioned workplace
Miss: The colour. Cannot figure out how this is their highest selling colour. I kind of look like a lizard. Should have gone higher into the dusty pink spectrum. Not MAC's fault. It's the kicker of 'looked good on the model' but this mere mortal needs some more colour otherwise doth look a bit dead.
Miss: Packaging. Call me old fashion but I like a lipstick that looks good, neat with a little glam-luxury. This, well, let your imagination figure it out.
Next time I feel like blowing the overtime I might try MAC again but I would go deeper into the pink spectrum for an everyday alive look and a satin finish.
Fully functional lip pencil
Brand new the pencil was crazy sharp and I had to blunt it down a bit less it slice my lips off. Texture was soft and did not have to be warmed prior to use. The colour was a poor choice on my part and I should have chosen a warmer-pinker colour.
I bought it as a colour match for another similar (poorly chosen) coloured lipstick but now intend to use it to dull down some of my too-bold-for-conservative-job lip colours. See how that goes.
