MAC Cosmetics Price Increase in Singapore

January 29, 2011
By

Although we ushered in 2011 with a flurry of beautiful makeup collections, bad news looms for MAC Cosmetics lovers – we will be seeing the prices of some MAC products go up, come 1 February 2011.

According to one of the MAC retail managers, this change reflects the global price rise of MAC products. Among other price changes, we will see MAC Eye Shadows go from S$26 to S$28 and MAC Lipsticks – currently S$28 – re-tagged at S$30.

As much as this is a dismay to me, I don’t see myself changing my MAC habits because I love the brand, plus MAC is still the mid-point between drugstore products and high-end cosmetics. If anything, the prices of the former are hovering dangerously close to those of MAC.

To avoid having to pay more, though, it’s best to start stocking up on your MAC faves and staples before this month is over. Happy shopping! :)

    Darn, I’m not in Singapore for a couple of months! Doesn’t matter, still cheaper than Australia (we’re probably due for a price increase too).

      Hi Jan,

      Not good news for our wallets, certainly. Hopefully, the price increase doesn’t extend to too many items.

    Hi! First time commenting! We are also expecting price increase for Mac here in Malaysia, the most would be RM10 for the foundation (if I’m not mistaken) but I think Mac prices in Malaysia is still cheaper than Spore even after the increament come shop here then! ;) The price increament seems to be like a “yearly activity” for Mac :( Oh, happy CNY in advance! :)

      Hi GHM,

      Not everything will see the price rise; hopefully, your staples remain the same. :)

    I’m with you on this one – I don’t see my MAC shopping habits change either because I not only love the brand to bits, I have little choice when it comes to base makeup. But really, I really love their colours and textures – I’d like to see more mineralised collections too! :D

      Hi Kas,

      The MSFs haven’t been interesting lately, unfortunately.

      Hi Glenna,

      Some have gone up, some have remained the same. I can’t remember which ones, though; sorry.
