Saying that, I'm incapable of walking past a MAC store and not buying ANYTHING so here's what I have bought so far (I may get some more DG's tomorrow, though my original plan was to just get the LE ones that I wanted and the rest whenever as they've been made permanent now).
I picked up Stop! Look! and Goldyrocks. I wasn't keen on Utterly Posh, the SA who served me tried her hardest to convince me to get it but I thought it was too o
rangey for me and I'm not one of those people who buy things "cos it's MAC and LE" for the sake of it. If I can't use it, then why the hell is it in my possession?!
As I went to pay I handed over my Pro card and was busy nattering with an old school friend who happens to be in NY at the mo too, when the MA piped up:
MA: "Are you a make up artist?"
MA: "Where you work at?"
MA: "You from London, right?"
MA: "So if you none of those things how did you get the Pro card????!!"
ME: "I got it at the IMATS a few mths back - Pro were signing up anybody and everybody"
At this point, the MUA's eyeing me up suspiciously and I started to get a bit irritated aswell as confused. What was the issue? I have a Pro Card. It's legit. I wanna pay for my purchases and leave - end of. Meanwhile, my friend is watching this exchange of words somewhat bemused behind her sunglasses.
She'd never heard of the IMATS *sigh*, so I had to tell her all about an event that happened annually and internationally in her own profession. She then asked if I was going to The Make Up Show and totally warmed up towards me again (strange woman). Annoyingly I won't be in NY for The Make Up show (it takes place this Sunday and Monday), but I'm sure as hell gonna be here for it next year!
Last week I managed to get one of the last 2 Love & Friendship polishes from Rose Romance. Thank you to Bethanny in the Harlem MAC store who put it on hold for me for 2 days (when will UK MUA's ever put LE stuff on hold for more than a day for you??!). It's a lovely shade of mid tone pinky-purple.
I also bought:
Springsheen (sheertone shimmer) blusher
Ruby Woo (matte) lipstck
I'm loving all things peachy and glowy at the moment and with Summer around the corner (well hopefully we'll get a Summer in the UK this year), a peachy, sunkissed fresh faced look is one I wanna rock a lot over the warmer months.
