|I'm a MACtory Girl, very much in the manner of Edie Sedgwick. Minus the drugs|
Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don't exist, but should.
Dolls, I recently had the SICK opportunity to tour MAC Cosmetics’ Production Facility and the Estée Lauder Companies Canadian Innovation Center, which are located right next to each other in Markham in Ontario, about an hour from Toronto. I and a few other lucky bloggers (Karen, Lianne, Lily, Wendy, Ellen, Patrice, Aileen and Christine). A MACtory is, of course, a factory where MAC is made. Read on to find out about how MAC Cosmetics are made!
We got to don lab coats, glasses and little hard hats for our shoes like a true MACtory Girl. I don’t think I have to tell you how much this pleased me. I love nothing more than to create a full-on lab in my apartment with a hypothesis, control and final lab report. Frequently, you’ll find me with half my hair washed with a volumizing shampoo while the other remains limp with a standard cleanser. I’ve been known to walk around testing cellulite reducing pads on only one tush-cheek for comparison’s sake. Anywho, the whole joint was all VERY Laverne and Shirley meets Bunson Honeydew inside the production facility.

Thank you to MAC Cosmetics for an INCRED experience.
