I thought the same thing about MAC. I watch the makeup gurus on YouTube and have discovered many new and different makeups out there. MAC is a favorite. I absolutely love the eyeshadows and pencil eyeliner from Urban Decay. I haven't found a foundation that I actually like yet, but i'm still looking. Dont' spend any money on MAC teaching you anything, search YouTube, I think MakeupGeek has several tutorials on MAC products.

I don't think any one makeup brand can be considered the best. Which makeup works specifically for you is an individual thing.....sometimes it takes alot of experimentation before you find what's right for you.
I think the popularity of MAC is because of it's use in TV and movies, as well as highly successful marketing.
I'm not faithful to any particular brands of makeup...i've used both cheapies and expensive.
Here are some of the cheaper brands which work for me:
lipstick - Avon, Milani,Jordana
lip pencils - jordana,nyx,LA girl
eyeshadows - beauty treats,profusion,LA girl, elf, maybelline
eyeliners - jordana, avon
mascara - maybelline,l'oreal,cover girl,avon
blush - L'oreal, elf
I also use Sacha ; makeup from a local, carribean company.
Instead of paying for lessons, i agree with both Larae and Princess....definitely check out you tube.
Some of my favs are michelle phan,pixiwoo and mischievous.
And finally, if you need to find your perfect shades of foundation,powder and blush, you can get free demos from Sephora or cosmetic counters in the mall.

MAC makeup was also kind of the "trendy" makeup because, like LARAE329 stated, it was used in movies and TV. I probably have tried 90% of the makeup out there and I don't think one brand is the best for everything. MAC brushes are great but for the price there are a lot of better ones. I would suggest before taking any lessens, get some great brushes and watch youtube makeup tutorials. Wait on taking lessens unless you want to do it full time for a job. I do it part-time for friends and have never taken a class. If you're looking for a less expensive brand try the E.L.F. studio line brushes. I think they have the best blending brush out there! And start with a multicolor palette like coastal scents.

Have fun with it all...

I like MAC but I wouldn't say it is the best makeup out there. They started as a makeup line for theater and movies. If you are in the industry or a makeup artist you get a discount on their stuff. They are great with foundation and colors, they have tons of shades for everyone. If you are into colors and choices then MAC is a great line for you. I still use other lines of makeup with MAC.

Hi all, I am wondering why MAC makeup is considered one of the best products. From what I hear and have seen the foundation in particular seems great. I'd really be interested in hearing from individuals who have tried MAC or use MAC regularly. The main reason I'm wondering is because I really feel like I should buy only MAC makeup and stop looking at other brands.(?) Also ,for those that have had one, do you think it's worth paying for one of their make up lessons? Thanks! :)
