Back in the day, I was attracted to M.A.C. for a number of reasons. For one, it was the first department store brand that I discovered that offered an always expansive colour scheme that really allowed me to think outside of the box and experiment. They also did not pigeon-hole consumers into thinking that they could only where a certain colour or a certain product. They were all-welcoming, which I absolutely loved! It did not matter who you were, male, female, black, white, Asian, Latina, young or older! Their mantra of All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is the theme for one of their newest collections, that is very neutral themed and very wearable by everyone. Here are some of what the M.A.C. artists had to say about theme and the collection. All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is available online and in stores now.
JOHN S. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
M∙A∙C is its own melting pot. It’s like riding the New York City subway: Walk into any store, at anytime, and you will experience All Ages, All Races, All Sexes. And maybe even a saxophone player on roller-skates – you never know!
FRED V. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
This credo lured me in immediately, given the fact that I’m a Latin, Spanish-speaking, black gay male! I feel that if there is a niche here for me, then there is a place at M∙A∙C for everyone.
GREGORY A. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
I love the all-encompassing “world clique” that we have created. M·A·C lays out a welcome mat to the world! Beauty is ageless, genderless, and has no ethnic boundaries. Our credo appeals to me on EVERY level, as I love beauty that comes in all packages.
FATIMA T. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
Our credo says, “Come one, come all. Everyone is welcome.” When you work in this business for any length of time it becomes apparent that regardless of skin colour, age or culture, we all want the same thing: to look and feel our best. I aim to make everyone I touch look and feel better.
LYNE D. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
This collection is really in line with what M∙A∙C does best: The art of makeup for everyone! All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is a celebration of skin tones: Everyone will be able to find the right neutrals for them, whether it is for their lips, eyes or even their eyebrows!
TIFFANY J.ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
We’re all in this life together, trying to express ourselves the best way we know how. The greatest part about M∙A∙C is we all have a common thread – the love of makeup and the endless possibilities for who we are while playing with it!
KERI B. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
M∙A∙C is such a special community because we celebrate difference. Embracing All Ages, All Races, All Sexes allows us as a brand to break down the typical concept of beauty.
NADINE L. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
This credo changed the face of make up as I knew it! It was a maverick approach to makeup as art, and I was finally able to find a cosmetic line that did not exclude me. I could actually shop at the same cosmetic location as my mother, grandmother, little sister, big brother and girlfriends!
CAITLIN C. ON ALL AGES, ALL RACES, ALL SEXES
Whether it was at school, going out or going into certain stores, I remember sometimes feeling left out or just not cool enough. But when I joined the M∙A∙C family, I found where I belonged. M∙A∙C is all-inclusive fashion. No one gets left out of this club: no guest list, no bouncers, it doesn’t matter who you know. We are All Ages, All Races, All Sexes.
