My TBT post last week got quite a lot of views, so I decided to to another #throwbackthursday post. This time it is all about my first ever Mac lipstick. I’m a total lip product addict. Lip products are probably my most bought makeup item, to be honest. I have a bit of an obsession. However, if I could only buy lipsticks from one brand for the rest of my life I would chose Mac without a doubt. I know other brand make amazing and beautiful lipsticks as well and as affordable or luxurious or pretty some of them may be nothing can beat my beloved Mac lipsticks. I just feel like they have the longest lasting power, they have an incredible range of shades and let’s not even talk about pigmentation.
That being sad, let me introduce you to my first ever Mac lipstick. I bought this one when I was around 14/15, I think, and when I got it it was like the coolest thing ever. My first Mac lippie was actually the Viva Glam Lady Gaga lipstick. So back then I really loved Lady Gaga. I thought she was so different and interesting and I loved how every thing she did always looked so artsy. Additionally I was in, well, let’s say, kind of a pink phase. Pink was my favorite color back then and I had everything pink, so obviously this lipstick was very appealing to me because it was pink and it said Lady Gaga on it. I was sold!
If I had to describe the shade I think it’s the most perfect Barbie pink or Bubblegum pink. Back then I used to wear it all the time. I was obsessed with the color and the lipstick was quite creamy and felt so moisturizing. I was my first lipstick that was more on the pricier said, so I was beyond excited to own it. I was in love.
Now, I have to admit I haven’t worn this lipstick in at least 3 years because I most definitely grew out of my pink phase. Pink, especially that shade, is not really my favorite color anymore and I don’t like wearing this lipstick as much as I used to because it is such a Barbie pink and though it does go well with my blonde hair and fair skin I’m not really a fan of the barbie look anymore. When I was 15 I thought it was awesome but nowadays… not so much anymore. I still like really light nude pinks but just not the bright bubble gum in your face kind of pink.
Nevertheless I still kept it because it was my first ever Mac lipstick and it brought me lots of joy when I was a bit younger. I just can’t bring myself to throw it away.
What was your first Mac lipstick? Do you still have it?
