MAC Virgin No More

The other night, I sent out a simple little tweet to the universe.

Before I knew it, I had a fabulous squad of ladies with a million ideas.

(P.S. Before you do anything else, you need to follow FabBrunette, Solematters, WearingMascara, Jenn, Ms. Minneapolis, mommaof4wife2r, LisLoves, and Cole. They are my personal makeup assistants and they are AWESOME.)

All of the ladies above said something along the lines of "what do you think about MAC eyeshadow?"

And then, being the product whore I am, I had to admit:

I am a MAC Virgin.

For some reason, MAC makeup has always seemed intense and professional. I mean, I love me some makeup... but I don't quite feel like I am expert enough to use MAC.

But yesterday, at the hands of the fab women at Nordstrom, I made my first MAC purchase.

I only bought 2 simple shadows, so I didn't go exactly crazy.

I bought All that Glitters, which is a shimmery dark gold shade, and Trax, which is a light purpely-brown color that is perfectly natural.

So there you have it - I'm a MAC virgin no more.

And just as a random side note... can we talk about how I got an a-dorable pair of jeans at The Limited for $18. I mean, $18. Rediculous. I've owned more expensive pairs of underwear.

All in all, a fabulous day. I need days like these more often.

Have a fabulous Wednesday!

I love MAC eyeshadows! My favorite cheap eyeshadow is the L'oreal Concentrated Shadow Duo line.

elin said...

I am a MAC virgin as well. I have wanted to try their foundation for YEARS but am too much a chicken to approach the cute section they have set up at Daytons (ummm, Macy's - it will always be Daytons to me).

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

MAC eyeshadows and powder are my absolute favorite. I should be using probably some natural makeup, but no, I continue to clog my pores with MAC since it does the job and does it well!!!

The Coastal Chicster said...

you know, the only MAC product i've ever used is the Lip Glass - which was a disaster sort of like what you were describing in your last post. mostly my hair just ended up being plastered to my mouth. i could only wear it if my hair was in a ponytail! i guess that sort of turned me off, but i do frequently sneak a peak out of the corner of my eye at their eyeshadow colors. perhaps once i've used up what i'm using now, i could take a little trip over there and check them out for real. :) enjoy your new eyeshadows!!

I use Bare Minerals makeup and bought some of their eyeshadow a few weeks ago. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

Cristina said...

welcome to real make up my friend, MAC is amazing...you'll never go back!

Katelyn said...

I saw your blog on "A Little Bit of Everything"...You're blog is so cute. Thanks for the make-up advice. I'm a MAC virgin too---I've always wondered but never tried it....maybe now I will. :)

Melissa said...

Have you tried Bare Essentials? They are my favorite....more for their foundation then eye shadow but their eye shadow is pretty fabulous too and not cake-y...which sometimes I think Mac's can get.

Allison said...

I have a gorgeous eye shadow I recently purchased from MAC. I think it's called naked lunch..i know weird name.

Thanks so much for the comment and tweet. I was flattered! You're adorable.

Southern Belle said...

I wear Trax. I like Mac eyeshadow because it stays on for a looong time. Well, I use primer, but still, it doesn't come off. I also use Stila eyeshadow. I love that line for eyeshadows=)

Fashion Face said...

yayy! you are no longer a mac virgin!! Like I said...once you go MAC you never go back!

Blair said...

Once you got MAC..you never go back! There shadows, liners, glosses are the BEST!!
I am a new follower, I look forward to keeping up with you!

Michele said...

Just found your blog! I love MAC! You should try their eyeshadow primer (I think that's what it's called). It keeps you eyeshadow on all day long. I love it!
