#TBT: My First Ever Mac Lipstick

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.

#TBT: My First Ever Red Lipstick

Hello lovelies!

It’s Thursday, which means we’re only one day away from the weekend! Hallelujah! Now, I don’t know about you but I like to browse through old pictures every now and then and do a bit of reminiscing the good old times. Haha. So I thought why not go back a few years and share with you my first ever red lipstick. This might even be my first lipstick ever. I’m not entirely sure but it’s definitely one of my first lipsticks. I bought this little beauty in 2009 at the young age of 14. Why do I still remember that? Well, it was a very special moment for me.

I had bought this bright red dress for Christmas and I really wanted a red lipstick to go with it and when I wore my dress with my red lipstick that Christmas day I felt so grown up. Obviously I totally wasn’t and I can’t believe how young I actually was but back then I just felt so mature and grown up.

So this is it. My first ever red lipstick.

Back then I probably only owned Maybelline makeup. I still love that brand today and that’s probably because I still remember my first mascara ever to be a Maybelline one. And they just have amazing products. Oh and when I was 14, so 5 years ago, most of the beauty bloggers on YouTube just started out and if I’m being honest I barely ever spend any time on a computer. So I barely knew about all the high end makeup and if I’m being honest here I definitely wouldn’t have needed something like a Chanel lipstick at that age anyway.

So the shade I bought is 530 in Fatal Red. I quite like the name. It sounds so fierce. As you will be able to tell form the swatch it’s quite a bold and loud red but I thought it would go perfectly well with my dress.

And now here’s a picture of 14 year old, braces wearing 2009 and me. When I look at it now I haven’t even changed that much. My hair got quite longer and thank God the braces are gone. This definitely isn’t one of my best outfits but back then I thought I’d looked awesome, so that’s what matters I guess. I actually don’t even look like 14. More like 16.
