Okay, I’ve been meaning to write this for the loooongest time. What makes YOU a lipstick addict? What are the tell tale signs that you’re a fan, a collector or a hoarder? Whichever category you fall under, you MUST read this 15 point checklist to determine if you are just like me 🙂
# 1 – You CANNOT resist dropping by the MAC counter. Even if you have nothing to buy, you just go. You feel like a kid in a candy store… You look for any new items which were out of stock (last week? or the other day? I can’t remember, but at least I have a reason to go back) then you swatch some lippies, or just talk to the MAC make up artists.
#2 – When you reach home, you find your left or right wrist with smudges of lipstick, whether Amplified, Cremesheen, Retro Matte, Lustre (and the list goes on) and it is kinda hard to remove..
#3 – You know what the lipstick shade is by just looking at it, even before you turn it upside down to check the label.
#4 – You know the dupes of limited edition lippies with regular MAC lipsticks.
#5 – You know MORE lipstick shades than new MAC make up artists/ attendants in the counter. There are some shades that you have that they don’t even know.
#6 – You’ve memorized the formula for computing the batch code of each.and.every.MAC.item. In short, you’re a cosmetic calculator.
#7 – You know the shelf life of each make up product you buy, and meticulously check the batch code before paying (because you know you’ll be storing it for a looooong time, and end up NOT using it!)
#8 – You go gaga over limited eds, and you know what’s up for the coming months even if they haven’t launched it yet.
#9 – You visit MACcosmetics.com regularly, filling your cart with products, then logging back in to add more or remove some. You also go to Instagram stores, browsing through new lippies they have on sale, or even search for swatches online. (Oh, Temptalia, thank you for this!)
#10 – You buy limited edition collections even if the shades are not nice. (Cinderella’s Free as a Butterfly, anyone?) You just need that one lipstick to add to your collection even if you NEVER use it.
#11 – So, you weren’t able to get the PAST LE’s (Hello Kitty, Simpsons, Archie..) But that won’t stop you! You are willing to pay twice the price (or thrice), just as long as you get your hands on these babies!
#12 – You love staring at your lipstick collection and organizing them.. every other day.
#13 – You find yourself buying 3 similar lipstick shades but different finishes and realize they. all. look. alike. (No Faux Pas, Viva Glam Miley, Impassioned) But of course, you convince yourself that they are different, in their own ways 🙂
#14 – You know a new collection is about to launch, especially if it’s a Viva Glam shade!
#15 – 8 out of 10 times, you come home with your MAC lootbag 🙂
So, how many did you check out from the list? Did you get all 15? 🙂
