Hi. Please have a seat, I have some super news!
It was quite amazing when MAC Cosmetics opened up shop in Nairobi, Kenya. I remember the excitement among the women folk when the first signage at Village Market’s then new wing was discovered . . . We could not wait for it to open! And then it did and my God, it was packed for days! A real MAC store meant no more counterfeit risks. No more sending friends and family overseas to get our NC 30 or NW 45 foundations hahaha. Ruby Woo was readily accessible. And we could get our faces beat by MAC makeup artists! And then more stores opened up 🙂 It was all beauty bliss. But the prices were noticeably higher here than online or Dubai or the U.S. and U.K. so for some things it was still lighter on our pockets to send for abroad or order from online shops. Until recently when MAC standardized their prices across the board. Yes, leveled pricing on all products everywhere, including Nairobi 🙂
So now we can all get our MAC on without really breaking the bank right here in Nairobi. All the face, eye and lip makeup we need from foundations to highlighters to lipsticks to the magical Fix plus sprays. Yaay! Isn’t that MACnificent?
This is ahmazziiiinggggg
Isn’t it though doll?
Loveee this Please if possible can you post the new prices, example on lipsticks foundation concelers.. This comes as a relief now and we dont need to be sending people abroad for our stuff. Yipeee to MAC
Hi Kauthar. LOL I’d have to do the entire catalog! :-p Best I can explain until i actually go back to get prices is for the stuff I’ve got e.g. the Prep + Prime Fix Plus 100 ml mist used to be almost KShs. 4,000 before if not more. Now it’s just about KShs. 2,000 neighbourhood. Lip scrub used to be KShs. 2,500 and now it’s KShs. 1200. Basically, the prices you see on here plus or minus around 200 I’d say.
Where can I find the products in Kenya.
Hi Kadzo. You can find MAC products in Kenya at any of their stores in Nairobi – Junction Mall, Village Market, Karen Hub, Garden City Mall, Hilton CBD. Happy shopping!
Any shops in Mombasa?
Hi Trizah. There are no MAC shops yet in Mombasa but please email me on email@example.com for info on how to get MAC products to you in Mombasa.
Totally Macnificent! Awesome! *heads out to Mac at The Junction to stock up on yet MORE make up* LOL!!!
omG they ain’t ready for you! You already bought up a storm last time I was there with you. And I’m sure you’ve been here again lol. Imagine now . . . twice the haul! I’m coming to raid your stash doll 🙂
You’re a breathe of fresh air! I was waiting to read this post with my tea and lamenting at how my foundation cracked and here you come and make my gorgeous Friday even better :*
Yaaaaaaay! Glad to have made your day better 🙂 Also, you can easily fix the cracked foundation using some rubbing alcohol or the MAC Fix + spray 🙂 Thanks for the comment Kui 🙂
Is the m.ac. pro longwear nourishing waterproof foundation available?at which branch and at how much?
Hi Valerie, yes I have seen the waterproof pro longwear foundations at the Junction outlet which the one I frequent. I’m sure it is available at the others as well. Not sure how much it is but I reckon it should start at about 4k? That’s my estimate. Will update once I know for sure.

Yayyy to MAC and yayyy to you 🙂
Has the sale come up? Was looking up for Mac prices in India and chanced upon your blog! Thanks for bringing in all the info and making me so happy!
Hi Manav. The sale happened already. hoping they will be having end of year/holiday sales. I am so glad you found my blog and took the time to message 🙂 bless. I’m so chuffed!
where can i get your products in gilgil Nakuru county
Hi Margaret, I’m sorry I don’t think they have a MAC store there yet. Maybe use a courier service with the help of a friend? I don’t work there, I just like them.
It was more exciting for me to know that I would stop calling people abroad asking them to buy MAC prods and dhl to me …BUT the prices at village market are mostly 1000/- higher than can be seen on the official Mac site….2ndly I love the lightful C and my first purchase 2 months ago left me with breakouts …and a very rough face….my second purchase 2 weeks back seems to be working but still am way far from being smooth…
What I know genuine Mac has never caused me skin problems …are these genuine or from china?…. am really concerned and disappointed….need clarification…
Further please….anywhere to get eucerin ‘even brighter’ best for malasma but made in UK only…
Have a great day
Hi Wanjiku. Yeah that convenience was everything but at some point the higher prices were almost not worth it. But a lot of the stuff has been standardized to match international prices. Some, however, are still a little higher priced. I’m not sure why the lightful C would do that with one batch and then not with the next. Maybe there were extraneous factors that contributed? I’m no expert so I’m just speculating but if you’re sure that was it then maybe go back to the store and see if they have had any similar claims? What I can say is these are legitimate MAC stores with genuine MAC products. That’s why they came into the market, to give us the real deal. As for eucerin, I really have no idea, sorry. Have you checked the pharmacies like Goodlife? Or the one at Westgate? Maybe online and ship in via Mall for Africa or Vitu Mob? Hope that was helpful. A good day to you too and all the best with your skin.
Hi Wanjiku. I just found Eucerin on a page on IG that sells cosmetics. Check out @tbspinkenya on IG or their site http://www.tbspink.com
Will have a look

Hi Cynthia. Sorry, I don’t know the exact prices for MAC foundations as they have many different kinds with varying prices. Please check with them in store where they can match you as well.
Ad love o be a user of Mac
Hi do garden city mall stores open on Sundays? What time pls..
Hi Rahab, I believe they are open until 6 pm on Sundays but please contact them to be sure.
i would like to work for your shops at mac as amake up artist..
Hi Maybelle. Sorry , I cannot advise on this as I do not work for/at MAC. The best thing for you to do would be to call their branches or stop by one of them and make an inquiry or present them with your profile/portfolio/CV. All the best!
do you have opportunities here in kenya or vacancies for make up artist
do you have work vacancies for the make up team at the mac shop…
Hi,kindly share the prices of the Mac foundation
Hi Faith. Sadly, I do not work for MAC. I don’t know the exact prices for the different kinds of foundation they carry. Please get in touch with one of their stores or visit them for that information. Cheers.
Hi… I live outside Nairobi. Do you do deliveries and is there a contact number that one can call ? Thanks
Hi Ann, please get in touch with the MAC team at their stores. You can get their contact info if you Google them. They will be able to let you know if they can do this. Cheers.
Hello Oshin, i am looking to sell MAC products . My name is Binish. I am from Nakuru . Could you sell the cosmetics to me in wholesale ?
Hello Binish. I’ve just responded to your email on this. Please look at it and let me know. thank you.
Waooh this interesting I have Mac lipstick that am selling .your information is of great help oshin .thank you so much how much are the lipsticks at the moment in Nairobi.
Hi Eunice. Thank you for reading 🙂 The lipsticks have different prices depending on what kind they are and what collection they’re from if at all they are from a collection so I can’t really call out a price. It’s best to just go to the stores and find out depending on what you’re interested in. Cheers.
Well this just isn’t truthful, the prices in the UK and states are much different from what we’re getting in Nairobi. Lipsticks are more expensive, so are eyes shadows and everything else. Maybe they had a promotion when you posted this or you’re helping to promote them but the price are not the same. Be honest.
Kelly, if you understand the way international markets work be it cosmetics, household items, foodstuffs that are imported from other countries etc, then you would know standardized pricing means the pricing is leveled but factors like shipping and taxes must be accounted for so there is a slight discrepancy. Look at Revlon, Maybelline, Garnier etc. It’s not going to be the exact same converted rate because let’s face it, that makes no business sense. So no, the prices are not “much different” but justly adjusted for reasons stated above. If you don’t like it, go ahead and import and see that it will end up working the same way. They did not have a promotion, I would have disclosed that. I am not helping to promote them in the manner you insinuate which seems like I would be disingenuous just to push a brand. I am always honest in what I share on my platforms and you coming here to accuse me of lying is unfounded and unacceptable. Learn the market and how these things work before you start calling people out over nothing. Cheers.
Interested in purchasing them wholesale for retail.
Hi Anne, You’ll have to get in touch with them directly for that. All the best.
Do have online shopping for Mac lipsticks?
