All About ME

Mineral Essence Eating fruit and vegetables is good for your skin and so is drinking eight glasses of water a day, but what about makeup? It sounds too good to be true. But it’s not! Mineral Essence is a full range of mineral makeup that contains no harsh chemicals, synthetic ingredients, fragrance or oil so it enhances skin’s natural beauty.

Foundation glides over the skin – leaving it feeling creamy and soft. You don’t have to rub it into the skin like you do with regular liquid foundation and you don’t have to worry about it dripping off in the heat or at the gym. It is almost like you aren’t wearing anything at all. Subtle pigments reflect light while Lipoic Acid fights wrinkles and Vitamins A and C moisturize. Perfect for those who want to even out skin tone and add a little something something to the face.

You can feel good about ME.

Wow, we’re tired from sharing all that information with you.

When the MAC Fafi Collection was first launched I was not sure what or who a Fafi was! I now know better. Born and raised in Toulouse France, Fafi’s strong presence in the graffiti and fine arts scene was first witnessed on her hometown walls in 1994. She drew enormous attention and thus started to travel the world with thousands of ‘Fafinettes’ in her brushes and paint cans.

MAC worked exclusively with the Paris-based artist to create three distinct ‘Fafinette’ characters: Monoka, Ermine, and Eriko that embody the signature depictions of sexy, liberated girls that have earned Fafi a devout following in the street art world. When Jennifer Balbier, SVP Product Development for MAC Worldwide, was asked what the ultimate Fafinette face was, she responded: “The look is toned-down skin with heavier emphasis on eyes and a girly mouth. She’s colourful, but the texture is light.”

The Fafi collection is a hip spring colour collection filled with bold, empowering hues, unapologetically girly lip shades of pearly pinks and tangerine reds, iridescent powder, brown, blue and green Paint Pots and Quads, and whimsical cosmetic accessories.
