Undoubtedly, MAC Cosmetics is one of the most popular brands in India and around the world. From celebrities to makeup artists, MAC tops the list of everyone’s favorite. Not just that but MAC keeps innovating new products and presents us with more cosmetic launches than any other brand.
Multiple Celebrities have endorsed the MAC Viva Glam products, such as: Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and more. The products are mid-range price-wise, with great quality and have a lot of variety. Enter a MAC Store or Counter, and it will get difficult for you to decide which to buy and which to leave, the range is enormous (talking by personal experience).
MAC Limited Editions get sold out within few days or I should say hours of the launch (MAC Cinderella Collection was sold out online before it even hit the counters). Oh, Don’t fret !!! This list does not include the Limited Editions. The products listed here are from MAC’s Permanent Range of Cosmetics.
For me, MAC is my favorite and most trusted brand for cosmetics. Having used many products from this amazing brand I have complied a list of products that are my favourites as well as are cult products in the beauty industry.
Here are a few MAC must-must have for your vanity.
