So with all the reviews about Mac makeup, I'm thinking about going for a trial.

 

Now would you go to an actual Mac store or a store like Macys for your trial? I have both here around me, I just don't know if there's a difference.

I think it would probably be the same at either. I most recently went to the MAC counter at Bloomingdales for my e-pics, and loved it! I asked the guy if it was considered more prestigious in the Mac community to work at a department store Mac counter or at a MAC store, and he told me that there really was no difference. I think you're good either way. Hope this helps!

our MAC stores are always packed, but the department store MACs generally don't have as many people stopping by. i always opt for the department store version because i feel like it's a bit faster?

I actually did both when I was looking for my wedding day makeup. I don't think there was a big difference except that the counter at Macy's was a bit busier than the MAC store was. Macy's only had 2 consultants whereas the MAC store had like 4. If you have time, why not do both on different days & see how the experiences differ. I found that both consultants used different products so I was able to experiment much more.

 

Also, don't mention that you're the bride. I would tell them that you are a BM or something, going to a DW. When I went to one store & told them I was a bride, they did not want to give me a trial & wanted me to schedule a "bridal consultation". At another store, I didn't have that problem but they did say that they typically make you have an appt if you're the bride. I guess it varies from store to store but that was my experience.

I have had both done. For my wedding trial I went to the store. One advantage to the store is that there are certain products that are only sold in the MAC Stores and online such as the pigments. My makeup held up perfect for my wedding at 4am it still looked as good as when i did it! I love MAC!

I agree either would be fine.. I find our MAC store usually has more consultants so it's quicker to get service than at a dept store MAC.. plus our MAC store is a bit bigger so maybe they carry more products?

Great question! I was thinking of visiting a MAC counter myself; let us know how it goes! And of those of you that have used MAC; is it worth it?

Thanks girls!!

 

Our Mac store is in The Pier at Ceaser's. So I'm thinking its going to be more expensive.

 

Maybe I'll try out both. I'll have to see once it gets closer and I start going tanning for a bit!!

 

Bridgett,

 

Everyone I've talked to swears by Mac. I figured I'd try it, since so many say it makes such a big difference with pictures.

 

We shall see!!

Im actually a make up artist for MAC seasonally and we do both to the main stores and Department stores for events. If there isn't a big event planned for either place the girls working at the counter will do great! Good luck, you will love our make up!

    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
