Recent Beauty Purchases – Am I Falling in Love with MAC again?

This isn’t really a review on the MAC products, but me just rambling on about their products. I used to be a MAC-aholic, I really did.  But then I had an awful experience in a MAC store and didn’t return for a few years.  I asked an SA for help finding a product, he not only told me that I didn’t know what I was talking about, but he also refused to help me with anything else.  I hate to spend my money where I’m badly treated, so I didn’t go back for years.

But about 3 years ago I discovered the MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara from a friend.  It’s one of my holy grails and it re-started a spark for MAC.  I wandered in and picked up such staples as the Cork Lipliner which I adore and use everyday.  Then I think I sort of started falling into the hype of the collections.  I really liked Archie Girls Betty lippie but I ended up giving it away to a friend, it looked way better on her than on me.  But soon I noticed how the “collections” were so continuously never-ending and just as quick as I joined the bandwagon, I thankfully jumped off.  I just can’t deal with manufactured hype and the expense.

I continue to dabble in MAC, but truth be told, I hate the false desperation economy and the never-ending stream of new collections.  From lists I’ve seen online there’s over 20 collections this year alone.  That’s two a month.  REALLY MAC? I don’t bother purchasing online, I am so sick of instagram gurus who buy 5 or 6 of one product and then slowly start selling them off.  What a rip-off.

I wanted the MAC Alluring Aquatic collection, but I wasn’t going to go crazy over it either.  I find it difficult to buy makeup without swatching it first, so to me its worth it to wait and look in the store. I found what I wanted at my local Dillards and they had tons of the stuff. Tons of the stuff.  No drama of the whole selling out online nonsense.  Sure, I wasn’t the first to get my hands on me, but that isn’t important to me.

I kept waiting for the Pedro Lorenco lipsticks to show up at Nordies but it never did.  I bought it sight unseen, but Nordstrom has a very generous return policy so I risked it.  Can I tell you how much I LOVE this lipstick.  LOVE.  I’m looking forward to the Simpsons collection, simply because I am a die-hard Simpsons fan and own all the DVDs.  I also can’t wait for the Prabal Gurung collab, that red lippie has my name written all over it.  What about you, are you MAC-aholic too?  I know that the addiction is real.  Thanks so much for visiting, and stay blessed.

  1. I have some Mac nail polish and a couple lipsticks so I definitely would not categorize myself as Mac-aholic. There salespeople always look overly made up and unfriendly to me so your experience does not surprise me.

    That red swatch looks gorgeous!

    1. The red swatch is amazing! I hardly ever get my make-up done at MAC, I prefer sephora artists. And if I don’t like what a person is doing, I tell them immediately!
