I've a beef with the ones that say MAC is overpriced. Okay, so how much should they charge, then, since you (not you specifically, I mean those who believe MAC is overpriced) are such an expert? Also, if MAC is overpriced, what do they think of brands like NARS, Urban Decay, Guerlain, Chanel, Dior, Shiseido, MUFE, and so forth who charge a hell of a lot more for their products than MAC does? Also, "a step above drugstore makeup"? By that ridiculous logic, so is Inglot, since it's practically in the same category as MAC (mid-end). Also, some drugstore brands are creeping up to mid-end prices for some products (L'Oreal, I'm looking at you!). Anyhoo. Is every MAC product good? In my opinion, not necessarily. They've had some right duds over the years. But that's true for every brand! Sigh.
