Interesting fact: Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s posthumous original collaboration with MAC ranks as one of the top-selling collections in cosmetics history. I’ll let that sink in for a minute. Now, I confess to not knowing much about the late artist — other than the fact that she was not only incredibly talented, but tragically killed in the prime of her life — but I wasn’t going to pass on this stunning piece from her second collection with MAC, aptly titled Selena La Reina.
Considering the fact that MAC releases something new faster than you can blink, it’s not only hard to keep up but also difficult to be wowed as well … so when the Loud and Clear Collection first appeared, let’s just say that my attention was grabbed. Something about the translucent packaging is just too tempting to dismiss, no?
To celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday, MAC has created the Proud To Be Canadian Collection, three products with special edition packaging inspired by our nation’s flag. Originally launched in 1984 in a Toronto salon, MAC has since gone on to become one of the most loved brands the world over and is now sold in over 150 countries around the globe. A leader in promoting originality and fearless artistry, MAC is a brand that will always have a special place in my heart from the day it launched — and yes, my Canadian pride is most definitely showing.
Primers & highlighters have become a ubiquitous part of our beauty regimen and now come in so many different forms — a good thing too, since this isn’t exactly a one-size-fits-all kind of product and options are always a good thing. One such item that can usually be found in most makeup artists kits and beauty vanities the world over, is MAC’s Strobe Cream, now available in 4 other shades apart from the original. Then there’s the Extra Dimension Skinfinish powders with their prismatic surfaces that just beg to be applied; I’ve yet to meet a highlighter I didn’t want to almost bathe in.

So what do the Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara and the Oval 6 Brush all have in common? Apart from the fact that they’re all from MAC, these products have become staples in my beauty repertoire. With the copious launches this brand puts out every few weeks, it’s easy to overlook standout pieces such as these that also happen to be part of the permanent lineup. How refreshing to not have the dreaded ‘limited edition’ designation to contend with, wouldn’t you agree?
