While passing thru Nordstroms the other day, I decided to try on some MAC Cosmetics eye shadow. For years I had been using Clinique eye shadow (Victorian Pink), but last year they discontinued my favorite color and I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement ever since.
I was really bummed out by this, but I knew I had to move on. The MAC makeup artist was very helpful and picked out 2 colors that she said would make my hazel eyes pop. They were All That Glitters and Creme de Violet. I told her that I wanted colors that I could wear during the day at work, but when she had finished applying the colors to me, I looked like I was ready to head out to a nightclub.
Unfortunately, I just wasn’t happy with MAC’s color options, they were all too bright for me. So I headed back to the Clinique counter a few days later and purchase Ballet Flats and Nude Rose, which are pretty similar to my beloved Victorian Pink. Honestly, I’m not sure why I strayed from Clinique in the first place.
Lesson learned, stick with what you know.
