MAC Cosmetics will be entering the Jamaica market shortly with a flagship store in the fashion and pulsating capital of Kingston and Panache looks forward to its continued collaboration with the brand and facilitate other strategic partnerships for MAC's success and support of the beauty and fashion industry in the island.
In one of our interviews with the world reknown Senior Artist, Gisel Calvillo, we asked about her thoughts on coming to Jamaica and what she expects from the market with this being her first time to the island and that future launch of the MAC Cosmetics store.
"I've never been and I am extremely excited to come! I look forward to having people get to know who we really are as a brand," she said, "The Caribbean girl is very exquisite, she likes her makeup and she loves to look fabulous and MAC is really great at helping every girl out and showcasing to them the quality that we have to give."
