My first MAC cosmetics experience.
One day last week, I finally decided to buy my first MAC product. I heard about the brand multiple times, however its 'interesting' price and intimidating stores both helped to keep me safely in my NYX/Revlon zone.
I breezed into one of their stores and was most relieved to see an old classmate working there. She answered my questions and I was then allowed to examine the products.
After much deliberation, I decided on MAC's Violetta Amplified Crème lipstick. I chose that colour because it was not like any of the burgundy, orange and dark pink lip products that I currently own.
I 'swatched' it and fell in love. Wow. The colour was rich, vibrant and I quickly quelled the thought that I was overspending during Lent (but that's a whole other blog post right there).
When I got home, I tried it and kept it on to see how long it would last.
I kept it on for four hours, having meals and snacks.
This was wonderful! I would definitely buy more lip products and can't wait to try their eye shadows!
I also filmed a YouTube makeup tutorial using this lipstick. Here it is:
Stay tuned for my next MAC adventure!
