The MAC store is the debil!

Yesterday I went to Columbia mall to find outdoor wear for the inauguration and walked out with no outdoor wear but $100 worth of cosmetics at the MAC store...and I don't even really wear makeup. The girl behind the cosmetics counter asked me about my make up regimen (which is basically nonexistent). I lied a bit about foundation and such because I knew I wasn't going to buy any and I didn't want her to start with the hard sell, but at some point she started to talk about eye make up, and for some reason I told her I didn't really wear any because I like a more natural look... Now why did I say that?! Here this girl was with her eyes VERY made up and looking quite nice by the way. She looked at me with this incredulous look on her face and next thing I knew I was sitting for 20 minutes in the chair getting my eyes done with a natural look (I left poor Derrick and Jamal waiting patiently outside the store..LOL). Afterwards, I was so impressed with my eyes that I walked out with an eyebrow pencil, base paint, three eye shadows (because one just wouldn't do), and the lip gloss and lip liner that I had originally gone in there for in the first place. Sigh...

Um...what part of I don't wear make up don't I understand?! Now I'm looking at all this makeup realizing that I now need foundation, blush, and BRUSHES!!! I see a trip to Ulta or Sephora in my future.

The MAC store has created a monster!

You only spent $100? Consider yourself to have amazing restraint!

So true. I was so tempted to do more damage, but I knew I still had to purchase cold weather gear for the inauguration...LOL

I love M.A.C. I only order online now from them because I can control my purchases. I already know what I want and the sales reps can't pressure me. There are none online. :-) Also, from time to time there is free shipping on all orders. That's when I place my order.
