Hey guys! First off- I was meaning to do a post/video on this long ago- but time kind of got away from me, i started making other videos and sort of forgot. But I'm doing this post now and I'll soon do a video so YAY!
Here goes... probably a month or so ago my husband and I took a trip to St. Louis for our 2-year anniversary to see a baseball game and do some fun stuff. Well one of those days we went to this super amazing mall where I had a couple of first-time experiences...
1. WENT TO A SEPHORA STORE FOR THE FIRST TIME
2. WENT TO A M.A.C. STORE fOR THE FIRST TIME
I know, you're probably saying- she has all that makeup and she's never been to one of those stores?! Well, I don't live near a mall that has one and St. Louis is like an hour and a half away and I just don't travel there super often. But since I knew we were going for our anniversary I made sure i knew where those stores were. IT WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!! Sephora was like heaven for me. I mean you know how I like drugstore stuff, but i have my share of high end stuff and I could've spent hours there. I didn't have any pressing needs but I did pick up some Too Faced Lash Injection mascara, a new size of eyeshadow contour brush, and a cheap nail polish.
Guess what store was like two doors down? the MAC store. Before this trip I had NO PRODUCTS FROM MAC. Trust me, It's not because I don't think they have good stuff. I do heavily lean toward drugstore much of the time, and I also don't have a lot of access. I know I could make the purchase online as I do for some things, but I just hadn't. I didn't understand the foundation colors and knew if I got into eyeshadows I'd probably develop an addiction. But the store was there and I had to look around. I thought I could use a really good coverage powder or powder foundation for my on-air stuff, so I talked to one of the ladies there about it and she recommended Studio Fix for me and tested a color on me and told me I was NC40. She also told me since I'm in tv news I can apply for MAC Pro if I want... haha let's not go that far yet LOL.
Bottom line- I left the store tickled to death that I'd bought my first and only MAC product ever. After trying it now for a couple of weeks I'm also super happy with it. I may occasionally buy another mac product or two, I mean it's an expensive habit to have a ton! but it would make a very nice Christmas or Birthday present :) Do you have sephora or mac in your town? Don't take it for granted!
Have a great day!
