M·A·C Originals

Originals have a lust for life that can never be squelched! Some classics can’t be improved upon – from Carol Channing to Björk to Blondie, Bowie, and every glam rocker and tightrope walker in-between. This season M·A·C pays tribute to all the high flyers, in the shades, shadows and styles that have stayed with us for all these years, and some of the late-greats we discontinued all too soon. It’s a throwback to the future. Originals are now and forever.

Carla from Product Girl mentioned in her piece about Originals that Twig was her first lipstick purchase - same for me! I wore that everyday until it ran out. I have yet to try the new Twig Twig but have it on my to do list. Have you tried it?

I called my girlfriend Hillary in B.C. to see if Parrot was the eyeshadow she used to wear when I first met her. She wasn't entirely sure - but thought it might be. We then spent quite a long time going through the entire collection and chatting about each and every product. That was a fun 40 minutes!
