    NEW PRODUCTS ARE PUT TO TEST BACKSTAGE
    >>

To create the season's key beauty trends, makeup artists need the newest and most advanced products on hand - the latest finishes, formulations, shades and beauty innovations are all essential. Fashion shows around the world play a critical role in the M·A·C Product Development process. Artists use this unique opportunity to test-drive M·A·C's very latest product prototypes, sometimes years before they reach consumers, and put them to the test on the runways of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. If the texture, color, application or finish aren't up to scratch, artists let M·A·C's Product Development team know what needs tweaking. The end result: the perfect formula that works equally in the hands of a professional makeup artist and the regular customer.
