MAC: Reunited and it feels so Good



My new MAC goodies I'll be reviewing soon!


They say you never forget your first. First crush. First car. First can be transformative moments in our life. As, I was reflecting on my "makeup journey" it made me think about Mac Cosmetics. It was the first makeup brand I purchased on my own as a young adult.


Buying makeup back in the '90's was completely different than it is today. Having an actual shade range was still a foreign concept.


I remember standing in my local Macy's scanning the beauty department. That's where I laid my eyes on her: the Mac Counter. To be honest she was hard to miss. She just had this vibe that you wanted to be a part of. She was inclusive and the best music in the whole store.


I wouldn't call it love at first sight, but it was definitely love after first date. The first date being getting shade matched and knowing that the diversity and inclusivity I was seeing also extended to their shade range.


Throughout the years Mac and I have been on and off. What reason? I really couldn't tell you. If I had to take a guess, I would say the beauty market got so saturated we weren't as close as we used to be.


Late 2023, after combing through my makeup collection, I realized I didn't have any staples. You know, the products that never fail you. I suddenly found myself back at my beginning I guess you'd say. I found myself back at Mac.


This holiday season, I was graciously gifted a large selection of Mac Cosmetics. I'm so excited to be reviewing these products and sharing my thoughts with you.
