Mac makeup is probably the best and most professional makeup you can buy in the world, and can now be bought online.
Mac is actually M.A.C. and its stands for Make-up Art Cosmetics, a cosmetics manufacturing company started in Toronto, Canada by Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo in 1984.
The original company provided cosmetics for professional make up artists, but they now sell to ordinary consumers world-wide.
The giant Estee Lauder Corporation bought the company out in 1998.
Mac currently has 5 social initiatives in place.
- Mac cruelty-free beauty. No animal testing on any of its products, nor on any of its suppliers ingredients.

- Mac Kids helping Kids. A program whereby kids living with Hiv/Aids have their artwork turned into greetings cards, the profits from the sale of which are returned to their communities.

I have been in touch with the Mac makeup company - http://www.maccosmetics.com after reading some comments on the Amazon site that suggest the Mac Makeup sold there may NOT be the genuine product. MAC have confirmed to me that Amazon.com is not a registered seller, but that those who sell though Amazon may be authorized vendors, though probably not.

its true that all amazon products are not genuine. There are several MAC outlets here. So, we prefer to get anything from their outlet only.
