MAC is bringing back discontinued beauty products from the 90s

Don’t you just hate it when products discontinue? Luckily MAC is bringing some old school favourites back

BEST. NEWS. EVER. The bosses at MAC have gone through the vaults to find the discontinued products fans are still moaning about, and yes, they’re ALL back! We all know the heartache when our favourite beauty product bids farewell, but thankfully the beauty brand is reuniting us with some of the best from the archives. Terry Barber, MAC’s Director of Makeup Artistry said: “We get so many requests to bring back iconic colours from the past as everyone has a story about when they bought their first MAC product. These eye and lip colours, dating as far back as the early 90s were total game changers when they were originally released. What’s interesting is that they haven’t dated in the slightest!”

L-R: Shrimpton, Skew, Marrakesh, Icon, Bronx

So are you excited to see if your old faithful made the list? Seven lipsticks are being brought back and four eye shadows are being let out the vault. You’ll see the word ‘frost’ a couple of times - which will give you a big clue about the beauty trends going full circle.
