Have you ever had that feeling? That sinking feeling that something is just not right? It creeps up on you and soon it's all you can do not to think about how to escape! My relationship with MAC has reached this stage. I despise getting out my kit and seeing those three letters which just fill me with frustration.
I ask myself why I spent so much money on products which just don't work, or half work, or work but are nothing special. I think it's got more to do with my skintone and condition. I am sure they work really well for most people, just not for me. I use them on clients and get good results. My point is that they don't work for me and I need to feel happy with the make up I use. For example, eye shadows rarely show up that well unless very dark, or are patchy and hard. I prefer soft creamy shadows which are richly pigmented and a delight to blend. I find those have a great staying powder and don't fade.
I used to love MAC, spent time thinking about it, doodling face charts and sharpening pencils. Now it's all I can do not to throw them in the bin!
There is nothing in the range, apart from perhaps a couple of eye shadows and pencils that I actually like any more. I've moved on and found products that I get on with better, make me happy and don't let me down. They aren't necessarily cheaper but I think they represent value for money and meet my expectations.
So I've decided to let my MAC go to someone else who will love and appreciate it for what it is. It's sad to see them go but I have to say that this time: it's not me, it's them. I am sorry to do this so close to Valentine's Day but...
I'll be posting a list if you'd like to buy them at knockdown prices, once I've had a sort out of make up after the house move.
This made me giggle:
