I hope you all enjoyed the dramatic-ness that is the title of this blog post. I literally felt like I was posting ‘I’m pregnant’ or something along those lines. What a momentous occasion. Okay I’ll stop now.
I’ve been in and out of a MAC a few times recently umm-ing and arr-ing over whether to take the plunge and splurge on a high-end lipstick. My usual mentality is ‘why buy an expensive lipstick when you can buy a couple of cheaper ones’.
The customer service in MAC that I experienced has always put me off a bit. I either feel stifled and over harassed to buy something or I’m just completely ignored even after a good 10 minutes of being in there. (I know I could ask for help but I’m just socially awkward aren’t I). Anyway, on a recent trip, the customer service was excellent and the lady made me feel right at ease. I set my heart on buying a MAC lipstick in celebration of hitting 1000 followers. (Thank you guys so much for that by the way).
I’ve been eyeing up a few shades for a while – Costa Chic, Saigon Summer, Girl About Town and Impassioned. I feel like I’d left the coral choices a bit too late in the summer and wouldn’t get enough wear out of them. I’m a huge fan of a bold lip and completely fell in love with Impassioned as soon as it was put on my lips. I’ve worn it a few times during the day, blended into my lips so it’s not as dramatic. I’m beyond excited to wear it on a night out when I get back to university.
A quick swatch of ‘Impassioned’ (which you’ve probably all seen many a time but I thought I’d give you another cheeky look).
I understand that this isn’t the most exciting post in the world, and it’s a bit sad that I’m this excited about my first MAC lipstick.. but I thought I’d document the occasion even if it’s just for my own personal entertainment. What was your first MAC lipstick? Or are there any that I need to try out next?
