MAC By Request

Ones that got away...

I've been a MAC fan for years, I've probably used the brand since I was about 15. Although in recent years I don't really get excited about it, and I wouldn't even go as far as saying its my favourite makeup brand anymore. However when the By Request Collection came out I just had to get my hands on a few things that got away. Candy Yum Yum came out with the quite cute collection last year but it slipped through the net and I missed it. It's a neon, magenta pink with a matte finish, it's almost glowing in it's flouresent brightness. Moxie came out way back in 1999 with the Retro Matte Lipstick collection. It is a pinky-red matte lipstick which is easy to apply and slicks on opaque in one coat. I also purchased Jete eyeshadow which was from the Danse collection back in 2006, I can't say I wanted this at the time but the fact its neutral and shimmery was enough to sell it to me!

The By Requst collection was a great idea, as it was voted for by MAC cosmetic consumers via their Facebook page. There are tons of products that I wish they'd re-release though at some point! Namely Ahoy, There! and Big Bow Lipsticks! I really hope MAC do this sort of thing again at some point in the future as I think its a great way of repromoting those products that go away! I waited years for Lightscapade to be released!

  10. I absolutely love Moxie! I think I might be a bit pale to pull it off though. Candy Yum Yum is such a cute name and looks way nicer on the lips than it does just in the tube. I'm actually yet to even BUY a MAC lipstick, how embarrassing!
