Popping my MAC cherry

Can you believe that, the junkie I am, I’ve never bought anything at MAC? (Actually, I can…)

So. As an early birthday gift, my aunt brought me into MAC and told me that I could pick out anything (or multiple anythings, but I didn’t want to tax her – she had already brought me some gorgeous pottery from LA. She has her own oven-thingy and everything!) (Also, I am aware that “anythings” is not, in fact, a word.)

Though I didn’t care for the SA too much, she wasn’t terrible. Like most of them, she was a little pushy, but she was also helpful enough to make up for it. The fake-happy voice and motions were a little too over the top for me – can you say “irritating”?

I ended up with Harmony, to contour. I have light Asian skin – you’ve all seen it, right? (Or is that post still in backlogs…?)
It’s perfect! Very pigmented, and though it definitely wears through the day, there is a noticeable difference when I wash my face at night – I ran a q-tip with baby oil through it to check at the end of the night, and I could see an obvious pale streak! Points for wearing time – it’s pretty great.

I can see this lasting me next-to-forever, even with almost-daily use. A little goes a very long way – now I just need a small contour brush. The one I’ve been using thus far spreads on too much of this product!!

The verdict: Fabulous!

    I haven't had anything MAC before either.. but if I were to leave Bare Escentuals and go to something like that, I'd try MAC first :)

    LOL, suzie!! "once u've popped, u won't stop" MAC's prices are okay, in Canada, but I wish we used American pricing. I think the powder blushes are $18 there, $22 here? Not to bad, but still not fair!!!FB: I played with BE Warmth for a while, as a contour, before Harmony. Though I love loose minerals, I didn't like the product nearly as much!! Also – try Everyday Minerals when you run out of your BE, it's so much more cost-effective!! :)

  • suzie wuzie

    blushes in AUS $ are 35!!! >_< and they go forever upwards!i agree with FB- everyday minerals are a good alternative to BE

    I always feel so sorry for you Australians :( Our markup is crazy, but yours is even worse!!Do you make more, too, so that the average income to product cost is the same?
