My First MAC

Hello there;

If you sit and think about it, can you remember that one item that really got your make up enthusiasm started? That one product that just imprinted on your heart and you knew from then it was a game changer?

I can remember mine. I had used make up for a while but it was always really cheap stuff. Like the old Avon teenage line, Colour Trend. Now don't get me wrong, Avon has really brought that line on now and some of the items are lovely. But back when I was 13/14 (over 10 years ago) it wasn't what it is now. 

When I was 16, I started working and with me still living at home and no bills to pay. All of the money was mine. I was really starting to get into my make up. Needing to look my best for the boys -wink wink- and I came across MAC. It took me a while to be brave enough to spend so much money on a item of make up. But when the Wonder Woman line was launched in Spring 2011 I caved. The rest as they say is history....

Can you remember the days when MAC did a limited edition and you could actually buy them products weeks after? Because people didn't hoard them all. Yes I can too!

Above is my first ever MAC product, the Wonder Woman Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack.
A pen eyeliner at the time for me was crazy, such a novelty. I was dying to try it. I can still remember it coming to this day. I was so excited to rip the packaging open and draw all over my eyes. Back then I was REALLY into thick black eyeliner, the nibs on these pens are thick so it was right up my street. I wore it to death. The nib now is all frayed and gross. I don't use this anymore obviously. But I just can't part with it. This pen really started it all for me. Got me trying more higher end make up, I soon went onto the Fluid Line, and well ive not budged since. 

Can you remember your first MAC product?
Or the product that sparked your love for make up?
Let me know in the comment section below.

  3. Great topic for a post! love it! My first ever MAC purchase was the lady gaga lipstick. Took me a bit of courage to spend so much on one lipstick but ironically was so much cheaper back then compared to the mac prices now!! xx

  4. Love this post! The bit about boys cracked me up! I honestly don't remember my first MAC product. as for what sparked my interest in makeup... well that was too many years back! It would have been something from rimmel though, as that was the brand everyone wanted to wear back in the day! ha! xx

  5. My first Mac is from their Venomous Villains Collection. I think I got the Violetta lipstick at that time and I can still feel my excitement when I first got it. Xx

  7. I remember when you first used this on me. Infact I'm pretty sure it was that Halloween where you were a nurse and I was a policewoman! What were we thinking?!
