FASHION SHOWS ARE A PRODUCT TESTING GROUND
In addition to creating the beauty trends on the runway, fashion shows
around the world play a critical role in the M-A-C Cosmetics Product
Development process. Artists use this unique opportunity to test-drive
product prototypes sometimes years before they reach consumers. The Artists
put these formulas through the paces at shows in New York, London, Milan, and
Paris. They then report back their findings to the Product Development team
with feedback on texture, colour and ease of application. The end result is a
tried and tested formula fitting the needs of the professional makeup artist
and the regular customer.
The Autumn/Winter 2010 season is no different as the M-A-C Product
Development will be busy backstage focusing on products that provide
immediate perfection and lasting results. The Artists will be testing the
following selection of products that work as hard as they do, from the early
morning through to the wee hours of the night.
