In brief: Make up and comedone

In general, make up products that are oil free and water based are less likely to cause acne.
But contrary to common belief, comedones happen due to clogged hair follicles. An inflammatory condition, that includes both comedones and inflamed pustules and pimples is called acne. Increased oil production during teenage period, premenstrual period, or in women with pros may cause acne.

In brief: Look at label.

The MAC website says nothing, either way.
All non-comedogenic makeup products will say "non-comedogenic" somewhere on the label, or in the package insert. As a general rule, powders and thin lotions or suspensions are non-comedogenic.
