BLOGMAS: For The Love of Packaging & The Blog

Have you ever looked at a product and thought - oh wow, that packaging is just perfection? Well that is exactly what happened when I seen MACs new launch with Mariah... To be totally honest - I really was not a fan of any of the actual products... I found the highlighter way too gold for my pale skin, the eyeshadows were alright - but nothing to be shouting about - and the lipsticks were all a bit "meh" but for some reason - I just couldn't put them down.... 

So out of the lipsticks there were 5 to choose from, all nudes, all cream sheen or metallic, but I just had to have one... I HAD to. Why? The packaging. I mean look at it... then I told myself something that I don't think I had done before - to buy something I probably don't really want to use.... 

"It's for the blog"

What then made it worse was my lipstick was not perfect - the inside had been marked by the machine which made it - so I then had to out myself to my local MAC counter as a blogger by saying "It's for the blog" when I took it back to swap it. 

Hard times. 

So thanks to a certain MAC limited edition lipstick... the whole of MAC Dundee now know I am a blogger, I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing yet... I suppose we will see....

So, now I am left with a stunning lipstick... but you may have noticed there is no swatch in this post like usual... because I couldn't bear to actually use it. Well done Erin, you have bought something you are horrified to use... *urgh*

I can honestly say this is the first thing I have bought just to photograph it.. I will use my blog as an excuse when I really want something too... but this is the first one I have bought with little intentions to love....

The shade I went for is Mcizzle... which is still in stock here for £17.00

Have you bought anything before simply for the blog or instagram? Or just because it looked pretty? Which item? Let me know in the comments below :)

  5. The packaging is just stunning, so I don't blame you for purchasing it because of that. Haha. At least you haven't used it yet! Maybe once it's all sold out in stores, you could sell it ;)
