I know, I know. It's hard to believe. I can't understand it either. Why has it taken me so long to purchase a MAC product? I have plenty of more expensive brands, but this one never really appealed to me. Why was I so prejudiced against it? I've no idea. After some thinking I realized I was being silly and I finally entered the MAC store. The staff was friendly and helpful and I bought two products without actually having the intention to buy anything. So, this MAC virgin is no more!
The first thing that caught my attention was the cremesheen glass lipgloss. I had heard of this before and it looked appealing. I looked at the different colors of lipgloss and wasn't able to make up my mind, so I based it on the name (so typical): "Dynasty at Dusk".
The second thing that caught my attention was the cremeblend blush because I don't use blush that often. I have rosacea on my face so that gives 'natural' (and unwanted) rosy cheeks but this color looked so good that I wanted to test it. After being helped by the staff I was sure, I wanted it. Something new for me to play around with. Here's a look at "Posey":
The third thing that caught my attention was this beautiful soft pink lipstick, but I figured that two items would be enough for now! So I quickly ran to the cash register so I wouldn't be tempted to take a closer look. Back to the two products I did buy: I really like the style and simplicity of both products and the colors are just so amazing. They give up such a natural, romantic and sweet vibe.
This is what the products looked like on my face, I had to take them in different lighting for maximum clarity. I also added a bit more blush then I normally would so you'd actually see it on the pictures. My cheeks are 'naturally' rosy, so I don't need to add a lot, anyways. The lipgloss is a really soft nudish pink-brown. It's true. MAC has won me over. I can't wait to go back!
