It’s Mac week …
Remember 10 years ago, when fax machines were still around, when we bought CDs regularly and went to our neighbourhood drugstore to buy camera films, this was about the same time that MAC products were soaring internationally (under Estée Lauder’s influence of course…) and were making a big name for themselves… Year later, YouTube was bombarded by MAC hauls and MAC reviews, MAC products were everywhere and were always amongst yearly favorites … You wanted to be hip and trendy, you needed to buy one brand and one brand only: MAC… MAC counters were the place to be seen!!
They then somehow fell into a commercial slump (in my opinion). They launched so many Limited Edition collections, it felt like each month there was a new one. Just recently, we are starting to look at the beautiful spring 2016 Flamingo collection and we are besieged with the Zac Posen collaboration. I’m so confused with all that new stuff that I barely look at all their new Limited collections and I buy from their regular lines (the classics)!!! As I gaze into the sunset (yeah, right!!!) maybe MAC has just been surpassed by other brands that are simply performing better and give us better quality products. Or maybe MAC is just an old brand, with old business strategies that unfortunately, are just not reaching a younger/newer clientele? In retrospect, maybe MAC is just comfortably sitting on all those years of being #1 and getting complacent??? Regardless, it’s a shame and sad…
In 2016, if you asked me which company is the most underrated these days, my answer would be MAC. What happened??? I’m for one, guilty of neglect! Prior to 2015, I completely forgot about MAC. But, let’s say, I rediscovered my forgotten love for the brand. So again why? Last year, my friend Stashy published her collection of Mac’s Paint Pots and, as I was reading her comments, I suddenly felt the urge to retry them… We have so many tastes in common and respect here opinions so much, that I couldn’t go wrong. So 1 Pot became 4, followed by a whole lot of MAC products (blushes, palettes and more…)!!
This post is to try to stay ahead of their multiple launches! Visit often as MAC are just like rabbits: it’s a prolific brand who pops collections like crazy. I would love to play a small part in MAC’s return to the top and to promote this ex-Canadian company bought by a powerhouse like Estée Lauder and forgotten by many…
