A Letter to MAC

My Dearest MAC,

I have recently fallen in love with all your products. I went from a strictly Drugstore Diva to now a MACaholic, your products are superior and amazing and would make anyone into a makeup lover.

However, you have one flaw. That is, the swatches on your website. They quite possibly are the worst swatches I have ever seen and not nearly accurate to the true beauty and pigmentation of your products. I find myself having to consult outside parties (Youtube, blogs, etc.) to find better swatches before placing an order on

Today, I purchased "Sable" eyeshadow. I then went to the site because I wanted to see your description of this beautiful color. I noticed 2 things. 1 is that on the site you call it a "Velvet" while the container calls it a "Frost", just a tad confusing. 2 is that the color in the pan in front of me does not at all resemble the color I see online.

Please MAC, why is this so?

I'm willing to swatch up my arms and hands for the sake of beauty in order to get more accurate photos. Really. For free of charge (ok maybe 10 eyeshadows or lipsticks/lipglasses or both) I will volunteer my arms to be swatched up. I want the world to see true accurate representations of the beauty of MAC.

Paintpots, eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglasses, blush, bronzer, etc., bring it! I'm super pale (NW15) so my skin would make a great blank-flesh tone canvas.

Even if you do not want to make me your beauty guinea pig, I just ask you of one thing. Please, PLEASE post better swatches of your products on the site!

Please do not let this letter affect our relationship, instead see it as a building block.
