    I really want to get Ev Rev, but MAC doesn’t accept international credit cards. I really wish that they’d make this available to other online retailers too. I bought Wonder Woman from Nordstrom. Anyway, my first ever product, which was from MAC, was Blot Powder!

  56. Christine says:

    Oooh can’t wait to get my hands on Evolution Revolution !

  57. Kristen says:

    Congrats on the collex, Karen! It’s awesome that you were given such an incredible opportunity by one of the most well-known makeup artistry brands out there. :)

    I remember when I got the news that I was hired at my DREAM job – I screamed for FIVE solid minutes once I got off the phone. I had wanted to work at this place since I was SIXTEEN. I remember when I went into a couple college admissions counselors and they’d just look at me funny when I told them where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do.

    But I did it – hell yea. ;D

    Anyways – not quite the same BUT my point is that it’s such an amazing feeling when you’re given that once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity and it pulls through in a positive way.

    I’m happy for you!

    Have a great week!

    -Kristen

  58. julie says:

    love the blogger obsession collection!

  59. Cheree says:

    I am looking forward to my tube of Evolution Revolution! Congrats!

  60. Christine E says:

    Wow, my first MAC… it was 1991 or 1992 sophomore or junior year of high school, Rubine and Verushka lipsticks, followed eventually by Paramount and Viva Glam I ! They don’t even make those first two anymore! How’s that for shades from the 90s?!?

  61. cathy says:

    Mac was the first makeup line that I used when I actually started to wear makeup!

  62. raquel says:

    congratulations Karen! Di na kita ma reach!

  63. Beverly says:

    The very first lipstick I bought from MAC was “O” and the lip pencil I bought to go with it was current. I still use it to this day, although I change my MAC lipstick according to my mood and nail polish…this past week I wore discontinued Spanish Fly with a fingernail polish called Out on Safari by China Glaze… Hey, does anyone have a tube of Spanish Fly by MAC that they can depart with????

  64. Jarucha says:

    My first MAC products were the Creme Cup lipstick and Fluidline in Blacktrack. I bought both in the same day!

  65. Heather says:

    Congrats on Evo Revo, Karen – I’m so proud to call myself one of your (many) readers :)

  66. Chanelle says:

    My first MAC purchase was the Studio Fix Powder years ago, still remains a staple! And wayyyy too many secret crushes back in the younger years! Lol. Congrats on your amazing venture Karen!

  67. Solangel says:

    This is wonderful, you are so great to your readers! My first MAC product…well, I bought two at a time because I really wanted the classic (or in my case, perfectly edgy) red lip, Russian Red, and a pressed powder for everyday use :3

    https://twitter.com/#!/Legnalos

  68. Heather says:

    My very first MAC product was a terrible pink nail varnish (so pretty in the bottle but so awful on) that my boyfriend (now husband) bought me. I guess you could say it’s his fault I’m so addicted to MAC! :)

  69. Alison S says:

    My first mac product was woodwinked!

  70. Patty says:

    My first MAC product was the Photorealism quad. I could not resist those lovely greens and gave in. At the time it was a really expensive purchase but unfortunately, I’ve been hooked since.

  71. Christie says:

    I just ordered Evolution Revolution!! I’m so excited for it! My very first MAC purchase was a clear lipglass, and it has been one of my staple items ever since.

  72. Holly says:

    You’ve no idea how much I want Evolution Revolution! It’s beautiful :)

  82. Marie says:

    I really need to move to the US so I can snap up all of my favourite MAC products much easier! I cannot express how much I’m craving your stunning lipglass creation!.. But alas, I live down under ):

  83. Vicki says:

    I have a rather large collection of lip gloss, I couldn’t hazard a guess at how many! I think it would scare me if I actually sat down and counted them!

    I love it!

    I just ordered Evolution Revolution! I’m so excited!!! :)

  92. April says:

    My first Mac product was satin taupe and fix plus.

    The highlight of my day is being on vacation in SoCal. Very refreshing compared to the bay area lately. But the main highlight was riding a little tricycle thing with my bf going down Huntington beach. Beautiful!

  93. Emily Schramm says:

    My very first MAC product was the painterly paint pot and ever since then its been a flood of amazing products!

  94. Amanda says:

    Yay! Congrats Karen!

  95. Lily says:

    My first MAC product and one of my first liners was Teddy! Still using it now (:

  96. Anna says:

    My first MAC product must have been my beloved Macroviolet and Dipdown fluidlines. Still going strong!

  97. My very first MAC product purchased was their MSF in Soft and Gentle…turned out to be a bit too glittery for me so I exchanged it for their oh-so-famous All That Glitters eyeshadow! Surely, a staple to my makeup collection!

  98. Jen says:

    I am sad the collection will not be released internationally. I think the entire idea was an amazing one, would love to get my hands on a few of the items (esp. yours Karen, congrats!). I don’t own many MAC products (outrageous mark-ups in Australia)… but a few items from eBay has helped me to indulge in my sweet make-up tooth. ;)

  99. Tukta says:

    this is a chance for me to have MAC products for the first time!

  100. Carlyn says:

    My day’s highlight would definitely be my Bloggers Obsessions purchases :) I got 5, and hopefully all of ‘em will work for me! I got Evolution Revolution, Jealousy Wakes, All My Purple Life, Sonoran Rain, and Parisian Skies. Can’t wait to get ‘em in the mail!!!

  101. peach_ says:

    Congratulations, Karen! Your Lipglass coming out was one o my highlights of the day, too. You (and Tabs!) are my favorite bloggers and it’s great to see your success in lipgloss form! :D

  102. Kelsey says:

    What was your very first MAC product?
    Actually, it was an eyeshadow that I got through a swap on MUA just a few weeks ago.
    How many tubes of lipgloss do you own?
    Probably about a dozen.
    What was the highlight of your day?
    Playing fetch with my kitty. :)
    Have you ever had a secret crush?
    Of course! I had a crush on a boy in middle school for about a year. I never told him.

  103. Maya says:

    Really wanna win!

  104. Jakara says:

    I don’t know which lipglass I want from the bloggers obsession

  105. Nora says:

    Awesome post!!! Congrats! Love your blog! I love mac

  106. Victoria Aje says:

    I LOVE MAC Cosmetics, My Favorite Lip Glass Colors is Chai and Nice Buzz. I’m a nude lip and pink lip girl :)

  107. Jenny says:

    My first MAC product was one of the Heatherette trios (the one with the green eyeshadow) that my sister gave me for christmas. I was so excited! Unfortunately, the crazy green isn’t too wearable, but the other shades are nice. I should pull it out and figure out a way to rock it…

  108. Amanda says:

    My first MAC product was Lady Bug lipstick

  109. AnaBanana says:

    My first mac item was amber lights, still love it after almost 5 years! Today though was my first mac online purchase, I had to get evrev!! Can’t wait to use it!! Love your blog and congrats!!

  113. Sara P. says:

    My first MAC product was a dark purple lipstick that i bought in the 9th grade! I wish I could remember the name of the color….

  114. Christy O says:

    I’m a bit sad that the matte gel liner from Inglot didn’t work too well on me. It smudged a bit, and I could remove it with a simple baby wipe. No super glue strength on me.

    Congrats Karen!

    Oh gosh I’m so tired, been studying till 2am yesterday,
    Ummm… I had a secret crush when I was in junior high for a couple of months, but I didn’t do anything about it. A year or two later he had a crush on me, but at that point I realized that although he was really cute, I’m afraid he was as dumb as a shoe. Well, we all had a crush like that, I suppose :D

    I do wish they’d make the Bloggers’ Obsession collection available internationaly :\

  117. Jenny says:

    Congrats! You must be thrilled

  118. TheMissTrious says:

    I only own 2 tubes of lipgloss.

  119. Shiribt says:

    My first MAC product was a quad that I have no idea from which collection it was! At first I couldn’t make it work at all so I just left it be, but since then I’ve learned a thing or two about makeup I have been using it a lot!

  120. Anna says:

    I never used MAC products before, I don’t know why.. I used many different kind of beauty products so I guess it is time for trying MAC!:) I think I have like 11 -12 tubes of lip glosses I bought some of them and some of them are gifts. For sure I had my secret crush!:) I remember how silly I I kept myself every time I sow him.( forgot words and all LOL that was embarrassing! ) I think my crush liked me too but he couldn’t act on it we both knew we couldn’t cross the line and I couldn’t keep dreaming any longer so I had to let it go even though it was hard for me… Thanks much for the fun giveaway Karen!:)

  121. Hope says:

    congrats! I loved yours the best but everyone did great.

  122. Grace Y says:

    Today was a great first day of summer!!!

  123. Tabitha says:

    What is Tab’s favorite lipgloss? This Tab’s favorite is Lip Cure in Violet. I can use it on both my cheeks and lips if in a rush without makeup.

  124. Mindy M. says:

    My first MAC product was Studio Fix!

  125. Kate says:

    I’d love to use this to get some of the Bloggers Obsession make up!

  126. Lovi says:

    congrats karen on your new lipgloss! how exciting :)

  127. Amy says:

    I’ve never used Mac, mainly because I get of my info/reviews from Sephora.com, and of course they don’t have Mac!

  128. Amanda says:

    My first item, over 10+ years ago, was vanilla eye shadow. It’s still a staple of mine until today!

  129. Iris says:

    Oh no! I can’t remember what my first MAC product was! I really wish I could. It was either All That Glitters eyeshadow, or maybe Shimmersand Shadestick. Possibly Rubenesque Paint Pot. All three of those are a little similar in shade!

  130. lauretta says:

    Ahh just in time! In dire need of a concealor :)

  131. Christina says:

    I am so excited to get all the products I ordered from the Bloggers’ Obsession Collection! :D And the first MAC product I ever got was MAC Chatterbox lipstick! I got it a while ago and I must have become a lot more tan because it has a Nicki Minaj-esque effect on me now :P

  132. Tina says:

    First Mac purchase was blot powder!! And I still love it lol

  133. Maha says:

    Hey… Hope you are doing good… :) I have been eyeing Mac products for sooo long but never really had the budget to purchase it…. Knowing my obsession and craving for a Mac product, my mom gifted me MAC half-n-half lipstick 2 months ago and I am like on top of the world :)

    I was using it everyday but now use it occassionaly for the fear of using it all up…

    The Mac card would be a Jackpot for me and I could buy a paint pot and some killer eyeshadows :) My dream come trueee…:)

  134. MyBeautyBox says:

    I Karen,

    I follow you from Spain (however I´m French), I´ve never posted before but I really like your blog, it´s really fresh and girly! So maybe I´m lucky with this first comment and I´ll be able to enjoy this 50USD gift card!

  164. Lu says:

    My first MAC purchase was Creme Cup lipstick and is still my favorite lipstick!!!

  165. Akhera says:

    Baby fireflies tango on her face, gliding across syrup glazed peaches… beneath summer night’s clusters, her eyes sparkle and crackle disco ball blips as golden flakes fall upon her lustered lips… sending complements to the aqua-green hills that lie still against the darkening sky. MAC poetry in motion…

    My first MAC product was the Up the Amp lipstick :D

    Hmm I think my first MAC product was a lipgloss!
    Sonya recently posted … Inglot Neutrals

  176. Sundrenched says:

    My first Mac product has got to be mineralized skin finish natural in medium plus, which the Mac makeup artist colour matched me to. That was the first timelearned from experience that when buying face products don’t wear heavy base makeup on :( medium plus is a bit darker than my actual shade and I have oily skin so it oxidizes after a while to make me really dark. And I’m not sure if it gave me breakouts!

    My second and third Mac products, hibiscus and bust out worked out much

  177. Polly says:

    My first MAC purchase was an eyebrow pencil in Fling, and I’ve bought it again and again! Thank you for doing this giveaway ^_^

  186. Chisa says:

    I started to buy MAC in 2006 and my first product was a LE Plushglass called Angel Cream. I totally loved it and still do! (I still got it and it’s good to use – believe it or not) (other lipglosses by MAC didn’t last that long and taste horrible after a while, sadly)
    I’m a total lip products junkie and own lots of lipsticks and lipglosses from MAC by now. My favorites are still the plushglasses and the cremesheen glasses.

    Greetings!

  221. Cassandra says:

    Have the most amazing recipe for apple strudel.. Made it the other night and everyone loved it!.. Thought i could share it will all of you..

    4 green skinned apples, peeled, cored and diced
    80g butter
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1/3 caster sugar
    1/2 cup of raisins or sultanas
    Teaspoon of cinnamon
    and … i like to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract
    2 sheets of puff pastry, cut in half

    1. Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 355 Fahrenheit. Peel, core and dice the apples and place them in a saucepan along with both the sugars, the butter, raisins, cinnamon, and vanilla if you are adding the vanilla extract. Cook until the apple softens
    2. Drain the apple mixture and reserve the liquid. Let mixture cool.
    3. Place a quarter of the mixture along each sheet of puff pasty, fold into a rectangle and seal edges. You can roll them upwards so they look nice and become crunchy.
    4. Brush rectangles with reserved liquid
    5. Put into a hot oven and cook for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden and crispy
    6. Enjoy!!!

    Will make 4 strudels

    Back in the mid 90′s I would only wear MAC lipstick and the guys in english class called my favorite shade “moon-mud” because it was a purplish brown, and of course I had the chestnut lip-liner.

  249. Michelle says:

    can’t wait to get Evolution Revolution!

  250. Anne says:

    Oh boy, MAC talk! My first MAC product was a 6 pan eyeshadow from the Christmas 2005 collection. To make a long story short, it was the first Christmas I spent single, having gone through a separation that year, and at that time, MAC was to me, pure extravagant luxury. I remember buying it as a “Hah! My money, my choices on what to spend it on!”, it was actually a very empowering moment after a long and tough divorce, and the first time, as an adult, that I was really able to spend money independently. I still have it, it was called “Trend” and has very loud, colorful, soft and buttery colors that I still love; bright yellow, emerald green, taupe, heathered purple, mushroom and a deep blue, all lustrey and shimmery. Gorgeous! And yes I just realized that the compact is 6 years old and I still use it….haha!

  251. NeenaJ says:

    Congratulations, Karen! What an awesome day you must have had!

    My first MAC purchase was of 2 eyeshadows: Vanilla and Satin Taupe. I still have them – in packaging from about 18 years ago. I’ve hit the pan, but there’s still enough product around the edges to keep using them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  252. Joslyn says:

    Oooo I could use this. I really want to try that Magic Liquid Powder for this summer.

  253. Jill says:

    My first MAC purchases were products I loved from my wedding makeup- Studio Tech in NC 20, blush in Margin, Lusterglass in Love Nectar, and then a brush, brush cleaner and makeup removing wipes. I can’t wear the Studio Tech anymore but Love Nectar is still one of my absolute favorite lip glosses!

  254. Leah says:

    I picked up EvRev yesterday. So excited to try your beautiful shade on. If I won the gc, I could buy a backup. ;-)

  264. Wendy M. says:

    My first MAC product was Electric Eel eyeshadow, which I bought back in… 2005. You see, back in high school I was in band. I played the flute during concert season, but during marching season I was in colorguard. We wanted to stand out and be seen so our wacky (but talented!) coordinator said we should have a bright, eyemask-like and red lip. The colors of our uniform that year were purple, bright orange (neon, almost) and… you guessed it. The same Electric Eel blue. I had never bought MAC or even looked at their display previously but when I went in to buy EE, I was mesmerized. I vowed to myself that I would eventually own them all… and thus, my MAC obsession started. ^^; I didn’t really get into the LE game until last year. But never did I think after setting eyes on Electric Eel I would be a goner for MAC. :D
    Thanks for having this giveaway, Karen!<3
    Also, congrats on EvRev! :D
    I didn't get a chance to get it since funds were a bit low, but I'm hoping next week I'll be able to order it! Fingers crossed. :)

    Well, how exciting! I read this blog religiously. My very first MAC product made me fall madly in love with the brand. It was a studio fix fluid foundation. I had been using the Covergirl Queen Collection, but due to availability in my city, I switched to MAC. I loved the experience of buying, the expert match to my skin tone, and it’s worth every penny of my poor college budget hahah. I LOVE MAC.

    My 1st MAC purchase….Prrr lipglass. Currently wanting Viva Glam V lipglass since my favorite Viva Glam VI Special Edition (Fergie) is discontinued.

  305. Amy says:

    I am embarrassed to say that my first MAC purchase was for the cute bag! Inside was a glittery eye pigment which I love. ….and I still love the bag, too :)

  306. Karen T says:

    I can’t imagine how excited you must be!!! Oh Baby was the kick off of my MAC life…then Prr became my staple for my nude look and it’s a delightful glossy love affair! I just started working from home about a year ago and I don’t typically wear makeup BUT I still put on my lipgloss errr day!

  307. i love russian red lipstick! i want to try darkside!

  308. Katrina says:

    I bought my first MAC product when I was 15, I’m 19 now. I didn’t purchase just one item, but a few. Very big, false lashes, I think they were 48 or 44 – can’t remember and I’ve lost them late last year, after having them for YEARS! A nude lipgloss, which I gave to my mom, and ‘aloof’ lipstick! I used up that tube of lipstick so quickly, the obsession really started from there LOL.

  314. KPrice says:

    Congrats on Evolution Revolution! I can’t wait to get mine.

  323. Bitsey says:

    My first makeover was at MAC when I was around 14. My best friend and I were so excited to go and all I really remember is the SA telling me I had no eyebrows. Can’t remember what I bought, but it made me very self conscious about my brows.

  324. Libby says:

    My first MAC product was a shadestick. It totally changed the way I wear eyeshadow.

    I love Evolution Revolution and can’t wait to get it!

  325. Lindsay says:

    I’m a late bloomer when it comes to MAC. My first purchase was from the Villians collection last year and I got two bottles of nail polish.

  332. Zoya Qazi says:

    I try to avoid MAC products to add variety to my collection (and because i can’t normally afford it. I only have 4 products by them) but it’s just so addicting! i bookmarked the website cause i like looking at their stuff!

  343. anna says:

    My first Mac product was Lychee Luxe lipglass.

  344. Franny says:

    Congrats Karen! your lipglass is beautiful, hope to get my hands on it soon.
    Ahh… my first secret crush was in Grade 7, his name was JP and he was in grade 8 and super dreamy. It was a secret until some rude kid in our class outed me by saying in front of everyone “Franny likes JP!” …needless to say, it was not one of my better days haha.

  345. Katie-Jean says:

  346. Loubouholic says:

    Congrats on having such an amazing day! I have loved MAC products since I started high school. For prom I always would get my makeup done by my favorite artist at the counter, who still does my makeup to this day. My first purchase was Studio Fix NC45 quickly followed by many eyeshadows, lipglasses, lipsheens, & other products that caught my eye. MAC is by far my fave makeup brand.

  347. Libby says:

    My first MAC product was the pressed blot powder! Now I’m completely addicted to their blushes and lipsticks!

  348. Megan H says:

    I’ve never bought anything from MAC. The first and only time I went into the store, I was so intimidated by all the bright lights and staff dressed in black that I slipped out after poking around at some concealer.

  349. Emily C. says:

    My first MAC purchase was Woodwinked eyeshadow! So excited to get your lipglass!

  355. Dream says:

    I moved all of my eyeshadows to a palette and was able to recycle 24 containers. Left the MAC store with 4 new products- pretty damn cool.

  356. Kathy says:

    I have never owned a MAC product before but I was toying with the idea of getting their lacquers. Almost did one time when I saw some at the outlets but I passed since the shades weren’t the ones I was looking for. :(

  357. Harpa says:

    The highlightS of my day are:

    *coming home from work and being greeted by my cat, Monsa, who comes running down the stairs when she hears the door open. Eyes only half- open (her favorite sport is sleeping…), a little wobbly and oh so cute:)
    *drinking my homemade iced latte. Every.single.day. (Hi, my name is Harpa and I´m a latteholic…)

  358. Brian aka Roulette says:

    Its tough to remember but I think my first purchases from MAC were a Studio Fix Plus in C4 and eyeshadows in Chill and Sketch. And I loved the Grape liner. I remember how excited I was when they came out with a deep purple liner. I used to wear it with Lust lipstick, both I think are discontinued. So is Chill. Boo. :(

  359. Stacie says:

    My first mac purchase was your lipglass color.

  360. Natalie says:

  379. leetal says:

    this is so exciting! believe it or not but i never actually shopped at mac because of the prices (i’m a student you see..) so this is so cool!

  380. Terri says:

    My first MAC product was Studio Fix. It was totally my gateway into MAC addiction ;)

  381. Fayeth says:

    I’m not exactly sure how many lip glosses I have, but according to my bf I have too many… and I’d say 90% of them are rolling around the bottom of my purse. Last night at Sephora, he asked me why I don’t just need one lipgloss…. I just laughed.

  382. Kate says:

  384. Kate says:

    My very first MAC product was many, many years ago- MAC Spice lip pencil. I was pretty young, so I have no idea why this appealed to me so much, but I HAD to have one! I must have seen it in a magazine or something!

  385. Kat says:

    I am not a big fan of Mac but I do have some Mac products. My first Mac product is the187 brush. I was so excited when I got it, but somehow after a little while I wasn’t too crazy about that brush any more LOL. I am looking forward getting some single eyeshadows and pigments from Mac !

  386. beeks says:

    More than any specific product, I love mac’s creativity and willingness to take risks… sometimes what they do with certain collections is actually even a little off-putting, but at least they’re never boring. What other company would do a blogger collection??

  387. Sarah S. says:

    Nico Lipglass… please re-issue, MAC! I wore that to my prom!

  388. jasmine says:

    My hightlight of the day was that I saw an aa-mazing highlighter

    First…CONGRATS girl on your MAC journey! Fab lippie and of course I picked it up!! Love the sparkles!!

    So as for my first MAC product it was “Nico” lipglass back in 99/00 I believe….ahhh the sparkles called my attention when I first seen my cousin’s gf at the time pull it out of her makeup bag!!! Straight to MAC I went and picked it up as well as “Oh Baby”

    That is what created this addition! :) hahaha

  390. Joyce says:

    My first Mac product was their eyeshadows. I bought like 20 eyeshadows at ONCE. Crazy, but well worth it. The quality is one of the best that I have come across.

    Oh, Expensive Pink! I bought it in high school, and it’s been a long-term love affair!

  394. Vanessa says:

    Ahh my first MAC product was a clear lipglass. I remember going to the MAC counter at macys the day of my high school prom (wanted to get my makeup done for free!) and was coherched into buying something. Wasn’t much of a makeup fan back then… But lipglass changed my life! Probably went through the tube in less than a month lol

  399. Kristi says:

    My first MAC product was a teal eyeshadow, although I can’t remember for the life of me what it was called. I do remember buying Tulip mascara shortly thereafter, so I’ll go with that!

  406. Kaitlin says:

    My first MAC product was the 24/7 Eyeliner – still not sold on it!

  407. Maggie says:

    I only discovered MAC about a year ago, actually. The first time I went into a MAC store it happened to be on To The Beach launch day, so my very first MAC items were Marine Life, Sweet & Punchy, Firecracker, Humid, and Splashing lipglass :) To The Beach is still one of my favorite collections I’ve been around for (along with Venomous Villains, of course).

    Also, I picked up your lipglass yesterday! :D I’m excited to get it in the mail.

  416. Christine says:

    My first MAC product… This required a bit of thinking :P. I’m sure it was one of their mascaras because this was when I was still on a quest to find my HG, although I couldn’t tell you which one anymore because they’re constantly cutting the old and making new.

    But even more interesting – MAC was my first non-drugstore cosmetic purchase! My best friend is obsessed with all things MAC, and convinced me all those years ago that I would never find my perfect mascara in a drugstore, so MAC it was :-)!

  417. Jillian says:

    I can’t afford to buy any Mac and I really wish I could buy myself some

  428. Shannon Ikerd says:

    I can’t tell you how many people I’ve led into the MAC fold . . .LOL! I know, however, that my first purchase was CLUB eyeshadow. I fell in love with how it looks wet on the eye, and the duochrome changes depending on what you pair it with. I believe that my next purchase was powder . . . and once I saw that the line had a wide range of foundation colors, I was absolutely hooked. It is my dream and my goal in life to own their entire collection of eye shadow. :D

  429. JamieJames says:

    Congrats Karen!! I picked up your lipglass and the Nitro:licious 2046 one! I can’t freaking wait to get it in the mail. I really hope that these do so freaking well that they put it out in store even if its a limited release at select stores.

  430. Mariel L says:

    I am OBSESSED with MAC, I have been using StudioFix for 10+ years! It’s my go-to, can’t live without product!

  431. Rebecca says:

    My first MAC products were 4 eyeshadows that I bought at one time that my roommate had but I kept using them so I decided I should probably get my own. I have been hooked ever since!

  432. Jennifer says:

    I think my first MAC product was Mulch :)

  433. Sara says:

    My first MAC product was a powerpoint pencil (I think that’s what it’s called?) about five or six year ago. It disappointed me so much (felt very ordinary and didn’t last on the waterline) that I took it back and got a fluidline in blacktrack instead. That also was a disappointment when it dried out pretty quick, and wasn’t very black. I’ve since found a better black gel liner in cheapie ol’ wet n’ wild.

    So, I think MAC can make some good stuff, you just gotta pick and choose which ones to drop the cash on. And I *loved* the disney collection (particularly maleficint), and the liners from the feline collection. I’m really interested in seeing what they’ve got for the precious collection.

    Wow. That was wordy.

  434. katie wong says:

    I love their foundation! The coverage is great and for the price, you really can’t go wrong.

    Actually believe it or not, I have never tried any MAC products yet! I would love to, but many of their products just do not fit my limited budget and this gift card would really help me acquire a few things that I have been wanting.

  438. Keener says:

    My first MAC product was Sheer Plum lipstick. My older sister bought me it (probably didn’t like the colour on her… she’s not normally that generous). At the time I wasn’t allowed to wear lipstick/gloss to school and I wasn’t into makeup anyway to put up much protest, but I adored having it because it made me feel grown up. And yes, it still makes me feel that way.

  439. Susan Albert says:

    I like MAC blushes but their lipsticks are just to drying.

  440. Renata Bochnak says:

    I have to say that after months of Chicago winter, the 75 F weather is the highlight of my day, beautiful… My first MAC product was Fix +, and even though I own quite a few lip glosses, I still haven’t gotten any from MAC. I think my first will be Evolution Revolution!

  441. Crystal Ford says:

    My first MAC product was Fix + spray and I fell head over heels!! I love the product sooo very much! I use it in the morning before I apply moisturizer and then again after I apply my makeup!

  446. allison1998 says:

    My first MAC purchase was a lipstick called Deep Attraction. I got it at the CCO on Long Island, NY. That one purchase created a makeup addiction too big for words! LOL

    I’m so happy for you and the other bloggers who got to work with MAC! I’ve never bought anything from MAC because the closest one is at a Bay 4 hours from where I live, and the ladies there tend to be really stuck up. I love looking at everything online though!

    My first purchase was Nocturnelle e/s. Must’ve been around 2007?

    The first MAC product I ever purchased was back when I was 15. I bought two eye shadows (mystery and yellowish shade that I can’t remember the name of) and the total came to over $30. At the time, it felt like a crazy amount of money to be spending on eyeshadow.

    I’m a newly converted MAC addict. My first purchase was ‘Bombshell’ lipstick that I bought late last year.

Congratulations!

  481. Melissa says:

    The first time I ever had my make-up done was in 8th grade at MAC counter. I think my mom hoped they’d teach me something understated for her 14 year old, instead they gave me blue eyeshadow and falsies that I continued to wear for years!

  482. Rosie says:

    I think my first mac product was a studio fix concealer. I remember back then I was so intimidated by mac products in general. How time flies :)

  507. Alison says:

    My first MAC product was Russian Red, which I bought when I was 16 without any knowledge of MAC products because I was going through a 50s pin up phase: every day I would wear stockings, suspenders, pencil skirt and high heels! All that happened was I destroyed my Achilles tendon, so now I have to work my face even more because high heels don’t work for me anymore ;) Right now I’m wearing Girl About Town which I bought in April on my first ever trip to the States…NYC no less! I’ve layered Urban Decay VInyl over the top – I never layered any lip colours til I read your blog. And although I’m a UK reader I purchased Evolution Revolution on eBay today because I think you, your story and your colour are all beautiful! K-Dawg and T-Money…never change!!!

  524. Sam says:

    I would love to try MAC products, but a college student budget doesn’t really allow for them!

  525. Kris says:

    I am a beauty junkie who has never tried a Mac product. How is that possible? The stores and sales people are just way too loud and painted for my taste. But I would like to try their products, maybe start off simple with some lip gloss or something.

    I think my very first MAC product may have been Bronze Star Lipglass. Oh, how I wish they’d repromote that shade. I remember that some of my very first purchases were Oh Baby and the clear Lipglass. I also got some peachy lipgloss/stain that they stopped making ages ago and Spice lip pencil. It used to be that I would rarely go to the MAC counter because they were a little stuck up and not very nice and it was a bit intimidating. Now, they’ve stopped blasting obnoxious music and the people are super nice. Some of them even remember my name when I go there. :)

    Hi Karen. My first purchase from MAC was a long time ago, almost too long to remember! It was a little cosmetic bag that had some nail polish in it. the colors were a gold polish and a purple polish. I liked them so much I then explored some of their brushes. I still have my original brush purchases, a blush and a powder brush. Of course, now I have so much MAC I can hardly store it all. MAC rocks!

  657. Barbara R says:

    As a 30+ yr old, I’m just now really getting into makeup… to the point I may need professional help! ( or at least my wallet does :) At any rate, I’ve just never had much time, need, money, or place to wear it much. But when I have, it’s almost always been MAC. don’t really even know why, maybe because it was the first I ever owned (which was Viva Glam IV lipstick).
    I really have to thank you for your blog as it has been very helpful in navigating these uncharted waters. And I want to congratulate you on Evolution Revolution, I hope they don’t run out before my next paycheck.

  668. Soo says:

    my very first MAC product was brush cleaner. I haven’t actually bought anything full price from MAC (either sells out by the time I can afford it, or I don’t like enough to warrant a buy). my first purchases were going to be your lip glass and Jealousy Wakes, but the latter is sold out already, so I don’t know. :(

  684. onegreatsmile says:

    I am madly in love with Varneesh lip lacquer and sadly, it was discontinued. OF COURSE. But, I bought SIX TUBES of it and hopefully that will last me for the next few years. Can you say, cool dry place??? I’m dying to try Love Nectar though. My friend (a stellar MAC artist) swears by it.
