MAC cosmetics started in Toronto in 1985. It was founded by fashion photographer Frank Toskan and an owner of a salon chain, Frank Angelo. The company was founded with the purpose of filling the gap between fashion photography and makeup artistry. Their products are directed towards professionals in the fashion and beauty industry including makeup artists and photographers. MAC is now quite popular offering a range of makeup, skin care and beauty tools. The brand has celebrity endorsers like Lady Gaga, Fergie and Victoria Beckham.

MAC Plushglass Customer Reviews
MAC Plushglass Oversexed Reviews
I love the color of this, and I love the tingling sensation it has on my lips — similar to the tingle created by Carmex lip balm. However — this gloss is super, super sticky, like glue, and it smells awful, to the point where it made me feel quite sick. Throwing this one away! – prettycunning (makeupalley.com review)
I have never been much of a gloss/ lipstick girl but trying to branch out I went on a mini MAC shopping spree and bought some things, this being one of the items I bought. I can see why MAC cosmetics are so popular. Oversexed is a juicy sheer plum color with just the right amount of golden shimmer, making the lips very kissable. It wasn’t sticky as most and it was surprisingly long lasting for a gloss. There was a bit of a “lip plumping” tingle, but nothing horrible as it subsided rather quickly. Update 1/8/2011: stopped using, sticky gloss + long hair + wind = mess 🙁 – katras (makeupalley.com review)
MAC Plushglass Big Kiss Reviews
The color is really pretty but this is by far the stickiest lip-gloss I have ever used. Even after I wipe it off my lips feel super-sticky for hours afterwards. And there is no plumping effect whatsoever. There’s a little tingle, but no difference in the “plumpness” of my lips. – chippergal (makeupalley.com review)
I am not crazy about MAC because I think they’re overrated, however, this is my HG lip-gloss. The smell is a bit off but I love the smoothing/plumping effect on me (I don’t yearn to rub it off) and this color is fabulous. It’s the perfect mix of pink/peach and has pretty good lasting power for a gloss. Not super gooey, sticky or gritty. Awesome product! I’ve been on the hunt for a gloss like this for years. Would complement anyone I think. – 305beautyforever (makeupalley.com review)
