Do M.A.C. products deserve the hype they get?

I am about to run out of almost all the makeup I have, and I want to take the opportunity to try some new makeup! I have always heard a lot about M.A.C. cosmetics, and of course seen them and their stores all over the place. I've always tended to stay away from M.A.C. though because they seem to be pretty expensive and I don't know enough about their products. 

I'm 21 years old, so I haven't spent that much time around make up yet, and I'm still just learning about the basics. I am big on cat eyes and have been getting more into eye shadows in the past couple of years. I am curious about ANY and ALL of M.A.C.'s make up though! Foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, brushes, mascara, eyeliner, blush, bronzer...does anyone swear by any of these products from M.A.C.??

Hi Again, I meant to warn you about MAC Cosmetics 'knock offs" for lack of a better terminology. They say it is the exact same product and it looks the same. Sometimes up close, if you're holding a real and a fake next to each other, that's when you can more easily notice some packaging differences, The prices are lower, the Shipping is ridiculously expensive. I've never fallen into this trap, partly because it was too good to be true and stories of others who had been duped. I also believe they were out of the USA.  So if you ever see MAC anywhere other than their site or some other reputable, well-known, established site that has permission from MAC to sell their products.. Just wanted to pass that along. Hope it helps.
