    I am going to India in January and I have heard that some brands are cheaper in India than they are in other countries.
    What I am interested in buying is MAC cosmetic products, and I would like to get an idea of the costs. I would like to get a basic Mac cosmetics price list for India to get an idea how much difference there is in costs. Maybe some lipstick prices and foundation price.

    Hello, @Shaz, welcome to the forum!



    Established in 1984 in Toronto in Canada, MAC (Stands for Makeup Arts Cosmetics) has come a long way since then. What started out as a brand that caters to a small group of clientele, became globally known over a few years. With its sleek packaging, high quality ingredients and wide range of products, MAC is force to be reckoned with in the makeup industry. While the company begun as a brand that caters to makeup professionals, nowadays, you can find that most makeup lovers have products from the brand as well. MAC is more than a makeup brand, its advocacy to help people affected by AIDS, through the MAC AIDS Fund, makes it a stand out even more. To this date, MAC has over 1,000 stores all over the world, proving their reputation as a makeup brand.

    In India, there are over 20 MAC stores catering to the beauty needs of the locals. In Mumbai alone, there are seven MAC branches located in different areas of the metro city. As mentioned above, MAC has a whole range of products, from lipsticks, foundations and blushes. Even the variety of colours for each product are quite extensive. This is what makes MAC a good makeup brand, as it caters for every skin tone out there, whether you have a yellow undertone, pink undertone or even an olive undertone. The limited edition collections of MAC are usually available in the different branches of the makeup brand in India as well.
