STATEMENT FROM M·A·C COSMETICS ON THE M·A·C RODARTE COLLECTION 

We understand that product names in the M·A·C Rodarte collection have offended our consumers and fans. This was never our intent and we are very sorry.  We continue to listen carefully to the comments we have received and have the following plans to address concerns: 

 We are committed to donating $100,000 to a non-profit organization  that has a proven, successful track-record helping women in need and that can directly improve the lives of women in Juarez in a meaningful way. 

We are changing the product names in the M·A·C Rodarte collection. 

As we have done in the past, please be assured that we will communicate details regarding our progress in this matter.
