Modern Critiques[edit]

The first and ninth references for this article do not work. References five & six are the same reference. These should be updated and/or changed.

This article is full of bias. It shows the controversy of the city of Juarez and its violence against women, however it does not address other dealings within the company that are controversial as well. Such as the "tribe vibe" make-up collection, which had racist undertones.

There could also be mention of the celebrities that support the MAC AIDS charity, as well as the celebrity lines that contribute to the success of the billion dollar empire.

Also, since not many people know Estee Lauder, it could be beneficial to show the demographics that MAC aims for in its marketing. On one hand, it seems as though the young, bright, and vivid colours seem to be geared toward younger generations, where as Estee Lauder seems to have an older, more mature demographic. This can be shown from their foundation to their beauty creams. Estee Lauder is geared more toward fighting off aging and not showing wrinkles, where as MAC is more concerned with being more modern, to market to a younger audience.

An additional somewhat covert MAC benefit many people do not know about is the "back to MAC" program. This is a program where you take six empty containers of MAC cosmetics, drop them off at MAC, and the company allows you to choose one free lipstick to own. The AIDS charity is excluded, for good reason.

Finally, another large part of the MAC franchise that many do not know about, is their MAC pro stores. I do not see any mention of this, aside from a url at the very bottom of the page linking these two together. The MAC pro stores have more products, more vibrant colors, better quality products, and products most people have not seen before. It could open up MAC to more business by generating more customers-and money-for these stores.
