Losing my MAC virginity...

Okay, so I've got a couple of MAC brushes, yet never actually bought any MAC products as the price has always managed to put me off.. However after seeing blog after blog raving about MAC cosmetics, I thought I'd bite the bullet and treat myself. However, I came across a MAC lipstick on ebay for the bargain price of £6.99. It was the Viva Glam Gaga II lipstick, which is perfect for me as I love more nudey, understated colours.... A lipgloss was also launched at the same time..

So the moment I even did the swatch on my hand (which appears pinkier than the actual lipstick) I fell in love. I've never been a lipstick wearer but my these are soft and make your lips feel so good!!!

Quite a deep swatch..

Sorry for the awful photo, just my normal camera is broken so having to use my back up!! As you can see it's more natural on my lips than my hand (probably more pigmented due to my lips) but I absolutely love it. Not only am I now a lipstick convert, I am a MAC convert!! I'll apologise to my bank balance now shall I???

Does anyone else have any favourite MAC shades or products they wish to recommend me????

Mwah xx


  1. Just stumbled across your blog through an old blog hop post - love your title! And also that you used the word "pinkier" :D
    I've been nervous to try any of the "real" beauty brands like Mac or Nars just because of the price tag. I'm still figuring out a lot of what works best for me, and I worry about spending on such an expensive thing that might not work out, ya know?
    ANYHOW! Glad you mentioned the thing about finding in on ebay, I never even thought to try ebay for things like these, thanks! ;)

  2. Glad you enjoy your new MAC products. The lipstick looks great on you :)

    Would u like to follow each other?

  6. Hey,

    found you through the blog hop - loving the blog, and so agree with your initial Topshop comments on your newest post! lol.

    I am a MAC addict and would highly recommend the pigments, the foundations (I use studio fix) and their LoveLorn lipstick :)
