I found another post sitting in my draft box that never made it to be published. This one is MAC’s Strawberry Malt Lipglass from the Archie’s Girls Collection. A year ago I scored myself Ronnie Red and Black Swan from the Archie Collection and died a little inside because I didn’t get more before all of Auckland sold out. When I was out one day at a MAC store that wasn’t my usual I noticed they had a tester for Strawberry Malt, turned out they had the last tube in stock.
It looks terrifying in the tube, I got it home and was like “how am I going to wear this???”, but when you put it on its not nearly as intense. You can put it on sparingly for a nice tint or you can apply it thicker for more coverage.
So I brought it without thinking, I don’t wear lip gloss so when I got it home I was a bit like “well now what?”. I have to admit I haven’t worn it often except for on outings when my hair is up, it is super windy where I work and I wear my hair down >< long hair+wind+lipgloss = manic lady look. Every time I get it out to wear I wonder why I don’t wear it, it is a fantastic lipgloss and looks lovely on, you can wear it on its own or layer it over other lippies for awesome looks. I think half my problem is that it is limited edition and I don’t want it to be used up. I think I just need to enjoy it and maybe not put it on until I am at work to avoid the windy hair glossy mess. XD
I adore the MAC packaging as it is, but the Archie’s Girls packaging was so cool. I ended up with only products from Veronica’s collection, Veronica is my favourite and I think I am more like her than Betty. All these posts I am finding in my draft box is reminding me that I have a tonne of awesome products that I do not use. I seriously need to open my lipstick drawer (yes it has its own drawer) and try to use all the different colours/brands more.
Do you have products that keep making their way to your drawer/cupboard? Any suggestions on how I can use more of my collection?
Thanks for stopping by!
