EOTD: Back to MAC

Pretty much every beauty addict goes through their "MAC phase" - building up a collection of eyeshadows, lipsticks and lipglasses from the permanent line, and rushing to the counter for every limited collection to add the most coveted LE shades to their stash. Sooner or later, the ardour cools and you step off the merry-go-round of chasing collection after collection, returning to a more level-headed relationship with the brand.

My MAC phase lasted from around 2005 - 2007, and I've still got some of the colours I collected during that time. Many of them are discontinued now, but I still like to revisit them from time to time, particularly the eyeshadows in the three 15-palettes I amassed on a crazy shopping trip to New York in 2006.

Here's a look using some of my oldest and best-loved MAC eyehadows - Bitter, Blu-Noir, Tilt and Vex. Of the four, only Tilt and Vex are still on counters, and it's no wonder, as the pink-green duochrome on a champagne base and the blue/green/purple shift are both timeless classics.

Did you have a MAC phase? What were/are your big loves from the brand?


  1. Yup, I had a MAC phase too. It was lipsticks for me and I must own all but the nude / neutral shades from the permanent line. Oddly I was never drawn to the LE releases. Girl about town is my favourite and the only shade I've ever bought a back up of.

  2. I used to wear Vex ALL the time. It's still my favourite Mac shadow.
