MAC Whore/MAC Addict/MAC is my CRACK/MAC-aholic
Just some of the names people use to describe themselves as die-hard mac fanatics.
It's no secret -- MAC has received crazy reputation from celebrities to bloggers to, of course, YT gurus.
There are blogs and forums that devote their material/content specifically to MAC (specktra and Temptalia).
What I want to know is how did MAC get SO BIG?? (big mac -- haha.. Get it?)…
MAC was originally a Canadian brand, getting its start in Toronto (woop woop represent!)… but it was bought out by cosmetics giant Estee Lauder.
I understand why a lot of Americans are 'addicts' -- it's a matter of supply and demand. From my understanding, MAC doesn't come by easy in the States, unlike here in Toronto (I can't speak for all of Canada). Judging from the videos I watch, it seems that the average distance of a MAC store to most of the people on YouTube are about 30min to 45min away.
The fact that MAC seems to be so hard to attain (in my opinion) is why it's so popular. People want what they can't have or can't get.
Here in Toronto, there are TWO MACs in almost every mall in the city -- one counter and one freestanding store… and every mall is an average of 10min away from almost everyone… needless to say, MAC is extremely accessible here… not to say there aren't MAC addicts here in Canada/Toronto *guilty*
Of course there are other reasons to love MAC -- the quality, the price (yes it's expensive to some, but not as expensive as department store brands), the variety and selection!
Also, why *I* use MAC, personally is something that one of my friends once said and it made a lot of sense to me -- "your face is important -- you don't want to put just anything on it… so it makes sense to spend a little more on better quality products that you put on your face"
How did you find out about MAC and why are you fan?
