I've always been intrigued by M.A.C and how they create and expand their brand. However, I could never freely afford to buy it, so I don't really own many M.A.C products. Pity, really. Needless to say they're known for their good pigmentation and I chose to get 2 very pigmented lipsticks.
I decided to indulge myself, so I got Rebel (a satin finish) and Morange (a amplified finish). I'm pretty bold lipstick wise, I know what I want and I read before hand. I personally like only matte lipsticks or sheen, no frost in them. For my ivory skin type I tend to look better with darker lipsticks, which I have no shame in rocking. I originally went to get a lip glass I'd seen called Caqui, but it was limited and sold out. In a fit of rampage I decided to get the 2 lipsticks. Needless to say the store clerk loved that part! I was a bit disappointment with a clerk who gave me costumer service. I may not be a professional make-up artist, but I know my stuff. I kept asking her questions she didn't know how to answer and in turn treated me like I was a clueless buffoon. I, at one point, asked her if there was any lipstick close to a dusty rose colour. She didn't even know what dusty rose is! And she gave me a pale barbie pink! I looked like a hooker, I say. A hooker! Can you say "suck-y, suck-y, five dolla'"? Geez! But apart from that, I liked the store.
So far my collection consists of Rebel, Morange and Viva Glam Gaga. I had another but gave it to my mum. Hopefully, my collection will grow with patience and restraint. I don't want to blow my whole paycheck there! Must.Resist.Urge!
