My views on the article and website

I think it's wonderful that India has its own M.A.C website. It was about time!! But, that being said, it launched on the 8th of August, and there are tons of features they lack. For instance there are no clickable links or product info whatsoever. Neither are they any tips or face charts the article talks about. I'm thinking that they are still adding features, so I guess we'll have to wait and watch how the site turns out!

i think that's great they finally branched out there..i know that it's a huge market for them...hopefully they'll add more features soon

Hopefully Pakistan should get it. I guess they stick to India because most of the film industry has started using M.A.C? I guess that would be my best bet. It really makes me mad that our girls in Pakistan have to rely on someone getting M.A.C for them as opposed to going into a store and picking out stuff that they want.

Hopefully in the near future M.A.C takes that into consideration and opens up a store in Pakistan...

Makeup By Ren Ren,

I agree the market is huge there! Within these past few years they have opened 5 locations! 4 being freestanding and one in a dept store. That is very impressive!

Hi, I am surprised to see what the official MAC website for India has as content...nothing! I am insulted!
Why is the site at an infancy stage in India when MAC is doing well as a brand here. The volumes must be better than any other country. There is no listing or explanation of products.
I also must mention that I recently purchased a Studio Sculpt foudation and it was from a bad lot that had been recalled. When I went to the store to ask why the foundation did not look/feel right -it was oily splattery...I was told I had to keep shaking the tube till the emulsion became even whereas it was apparent there was something wrong with it. I was also told the foundations in the store were contantly shaken so they felt different...Only when I argued more and told them to do something it as the product was obviously spoilt, did they call the other store and were informed that this lot had been recalled and I was finally given a new foundation.
Shocking! Yes it is.I love MAC products - so I am disappointed at the approach MAC has for India.
Also Delhi MAC aritists need to be trained to understand and help people better with makeup and specially how to use it right!
Would like to really say thanks to Edward and his team at the GVK Mall MAC Store who really live up to the definition of a real Make Up Artist.
Go to Hyderbad if you want a good make up consultation
