WHAT YOU GET: (1) Eye Shadow
MAC began in Toronto, Canada when makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo decided to come up with cosmetics that photographed well. They started creating their concoctions from their kitchen and sold them to other professional artists, models, and photographers. Their word-of-mouth popularity grew and the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store manned by makeup artists. MAC sold in black pots and came in a wide range of shades that established the brand as the ultimate color authority. Today, MAC is a leading professional makeup authority, and have even featured collaborations with Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Brooke Shields.

I have the shade cork and I like using it as a transitional eye shadow when I am applying my eye make up. I use expresso as a brow powder too and it works great. Both shadows are a dream to apply - very pigmented but blends seamlessly on the skin. A little bit pricey for a single eye shadow but one pot lasts for years and years.8 months ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
