MAC Cosmetics Online on NYKAA – All Details on MBF: For years Indian Makeup lovers have been requesting MAC to open an online portal for MAC Products. For those of you who don’t know, MAC Cosmetics was available in India at only a few selected cities which had a MAC Store. Although MAC is like a pretty high end standard brand, a lot of us wanted to try every single thing from MAC. Now Nykaa actually continuing its awesomeness launched MAC Cosmetics online for all of us. If you’re skeptical about ordering MAC online and need more details, you should read this complete post.
MAC Cosmetics Online on NYKAA – All Details on MBF
MAC is now available online on Nykaa Luxe which is Nykaa’s Luxury section on their website. Recently Nykaa launched Estee Lauder online. Also, I hope everyone knows that Estee Lauder originally owns brands like MAC Cosmetics, Becca, Clinique, Stila, Smashbox, Too Faced, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Glamglow, Origins and a lot more. (They acquired or purchased Too Faced Cosmetics recently)
MAC Cosmetics Price on Nykaa, Same or Increased?
First and the foremost question which pops up in all our heads is – Is MAC more expensive on Nykaa. The answer is NO. We checked a lot of products on Nykaa. Then compared the price to the price of whats actually sold at a MAC Store. Well, the prices are exactly the same.
We had known this for a while now that MAC was launching on Nykaa on 20th December, 2016 but we were skeptical if the prices are going to be higher than what they are in store for the same price.
To our relief, there is no difference in the prices and therefore you won’t end up paying more than what you would have paid at the store.
Are All the MAC Cosmetics Makeup Products Available on Nykaa?
We want to say Yes since everything from their permanent collection is currently showing on Nykaa’s website but if there are 2 or 3 things missing, we will have to search really close. All our favourite MAC products from their permanent collection are available currently on Nykaa, so you can go ahead and order everything you want.
Are the MAC Limited Edition Products Available on Nykaa?
MAC’s holiday 2016 Collection – MAC Nutcracker Sweet Holiday 2016 is available on Nykaa right now. This is a limited edition collection. In Fact, like USA we can hope that some MAC collection would be available online before it launches everywhere else.
So we can say yes, they are stocking the limited edition products from MAC. Also, we sincerely hope that they will be stocking further new launches and limited edition collections from MAC.
Is there Any Added Benefit of Purchasing MAC Products from Nykaa?
There is no price wise benefit of purchasing MAC from Nykaa since the prices are exactly the same. However, I just placed my MAC order at Nykaa and I was given a free Nykaa’s pouch (if that counts as an added benefit 😀 ).
However I feel the biggest benefit is the fact that we can actually purchase MAC stuff from the comforts of our home without asking any relative to bring it for us from another city. Don’t forget that Nykaa offers free shipping for every purchase over Rs. 500/- also they have Cash on Delivery facility as well.
Will Nykaa Put Discounts on MAC Cosmetics?
Right now its too soon to say. However we strongly feel that Nykaa probably won’t be keeping any discounts on MAC purchases since MAC Cosmetics itself never really has sale on anything. Therefore we do doubt the fact.
But, recently MAC put some of their collection on SALE in the USA. So we are faintly hoping MAC puts some of its products on Sale in India too.
Are online purchased MAC products fit for BACK TO MAC Policy?
Please read about the details of BACK TO MAC Program here, for those of you who are not aware of it. Five items which qualify for the back to MAC program can be exchanged for a new MAC lipstick at all MAC exclusive stores across India.
Can we Return or Exchange MAC Products purchased Online?
Whatever MAC Products we purchase online from Nykaa cannot be returned or exchanged at any MAC exclusive stores. Not really clear if Nykaa will exchange or return a product unless its damaged or there are problems with shipping etc.
Important things to Keep in mind before purchasing MAC Cosmetics online from Nykaa.
1) Firstly, I want to mention the most important part about purchasing a foundation. Well all of us know that MAC products are costly. Right match for a foundation is absolutely essential. A wrong match is pretty much as bad as wasting all the money.
So I strongly advise you to know the correct match of your foundation before purchasing a MAC foundations online. For a little reference, Estee Lauder Double wear foundation shade Cashew will match MAC NC 42. If you have any concerns regarding shade match, please leave a comment below (also mention the shade of any foundation that you currently use). I will try to get an approximate shade match for you in MAC from our friends who are MAC Artists.
2) Before purchasing a product online, always see the swatches. For your convenience, you can always refer to MBF Gallery for MAC Product Reviews here. Hence you will know a lot of things about the product before investing your money in it.
3) Last but not least, clearing everyone’s doubts – Nykaa is a 100% genuine company who would never sent any fakes. So be assured whatever you get from Nykaa is proper original product.
