Yay, I just got myself a MAC Viva Glam V. It was a bit of a struggle but I decided to go with the good old V that you all probably already owned. I don’t normally shop at MAC, as you probably heard from me before, but I figured with $10 off, the deal wasn’t bad at all.
I was originally going to get a Style Warriors lipstick, as I liked the packaging. Thought it’d be nice to own something different in my stash. I tried on Brave New Bronze lipstick and Style Warrior lipglass but they didn’t show very well on my lips. My friend recommended the V before, so I tried it on. Got the approval of the bf and Squirt and certainly the MA, so it went home with me. Like the packaging and the good cause behind the Viva Glam line.
It was funny as we didn’t leave the apartment until 2:30 and I wondered whether they gave out all the vouchers – as the promotion was supposed to be for the first 100 customers only. But the place wasn’t any busier than any other Saturday and the MAC cashier had a bunch of vouchers lying around. The little jar that they used to put the turned in lipsticks in had about 5-7 items in it. I guess the Bay didn’t get the words out enough.
I took my time to test out some Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine lipsticks as well, as I heard they were very moisturizing. I narrowed it down to 2 shades but couldn’t decide whether they looked good on me or not. I don’t know what it is with trying out lipsticks at the counter, I just couldn’t get it right. The bf and Squirt already went to the Disney Store to entertain themselves, and I was happy with the V, so I didn’t get anything else.
One thing I was glad to see at the cosmetics section was the reps used Beauty So Clean to clean all the products and brushes before letting me to test them out. I was more comfortable to play around when I knew the products are properly sanitized.
Have a nice weekend, ladies!
