There’s a country song circulating the air waves out there that touts on something about “too good to leave, too bad to stay” or something like that, which I’ve discovered is a bit like my relationship with the MAC makeup counter. A frequent purveyor of blogs, many of them containing style tips, I always attempt to venture into “over the counter” brands found at CVS, then trend toward the pocket-emptying types like NARS, Chanel, etc, only to find myself heading back to MAC for their long-lasting shadows, quirky, brilliant artists, reasonable prices and fun appeal. I mean, who doesn’t need a bit of hip-hop while they’re getting their tired face redone? Super fun, and totally distracts from the fact you haven’t done your eyebrows in decades…
Recently, I quickly scooted my way to the counter over nap time to nab up my fall eye wear and was in dire need of foundation that doesn’t fall into my ever-developing cracks of wrinkles that line my face (laugh lines?! Crap.) I was met with a super entertaining, one-of-a-kind type of gal who provided me intense education, met a gaggle of her girlfriends, had discussions I likely wouldn’t even have with my husband and ended up with a pile of goodies that left me with a fresh clean face. Here is a sample of some of the things I walked away with:
Of course, I couldn’t take them all as it’s budget time as usual, making it difficult to recreate it as stellar as she did, but we’re coming pretty close. And with a gal that refuses to do more than a three-minute routine and is constantly on the go? I’ll take it.
Adore you, MAC – and I’ll always come back.
