That '90s Look: Mac By Request range for Spring 2014

Thousands of Mac Cosmetic fans across the country have been voting in anticipation of the new Mac By Request range for spring 2014.
The official Mac Facebook page gave lovers of the cult beauty brand a chance to vote for some of their favourite products of the past to be sold again.

Frustrated with the lack of colours that could be captured well in photographs, makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and beauty salon owner Frank Angelo set about creating a line of cosmetics which would fulfil their professional needs. Originally a cottage industry, Mac launched officially in March of 1984, their debut products lined up neatly on a single counter in a department store in Toronto.

Years later, their products are craved by beauty addicts globally. Anyone who has ever visited a Mac counter will tell you that they bear a mind-boggling spectrum of products in a vast array of different finishes and colours. But there are many products and colours which the company discontinued in the past - and they're bringing some of them back for a limited time only.

Based on votes on a selection of discontinued products from the 1990s and the early 2000s, fans eagerly clicked away to bring back their favourite shades of yesteryear.

Three lipsticks, three Lip Glass lip glosses and three eye shadows are travelling back in time from nearly two decades ago to delight Mac lovers old and new.

Pink Poodle - a vivid, bright fuchsia pink in Frost finish
Hoop - a mid-tonal peachy rose in Matte finish
Glam - bright pink scarlet in Matte finish
(Matching Lip Glass lip glosses available in the same shades)

Fiction - a muted green with shimmer in Frost finish
Diesel - an icy, grey denim in Frost finish
Butterscotch - a warm, toasty beige in Matte finish

This gorgeous online-exclusive collection is available for a limited time only at

Do any of these take your fancy? Are there any discontinued Mac shades you'd like to see made available again?
