Hi guys! I was going through my makeup stash yesterday during one of Sofia's naps when I realized I have some vintage MAC items still hanging in there from 5 years back. I regularly purge my stash and get rid of things I don't use (either donate or pass down to my sisters/friends) but some of these items I seem to still love or have some kind of attachments to.
I would say doing this exercise has made me realize how much products I have and confirm my decision on staying on a no-buy. I mean look some of these LE items are over 6 years old!!!
MAC Delphic Fluidline - Lure Collection (2006)
Delphic presently the oldest LE item I own (I had some more that I since parted with). It's a beautiful shimmering aqua liner and despite being a bit dried out it is still more or less useable. I store my fluidlines upside down and have been able to preserve this baby. I use it mostly as lower lash liner or as a base for aqua coloured lids
MAC Other Worldly Blush - Moonbathe Collection (2007)
Oh my Lord! I have had this blush for now over 5 years and it still doesn't seem to have a dent in it! Other Worldly is a beautiful rosy gold and just has that amazing glow you need to warm up your cheeks. I find it makes me look a bit orange in fall/winter though I use it in the summer when I'm tanned.
MAC Mothbrown Eyeshadow and Pearl Blossom Beauty Powder - Barbie Collection (2007)
OMG do you guys remember Barbie collection? That was the first MAC collection that caused a frenzy, quite uncommon for the time. It's not like now when every collection seem to make people go crazy. I use both of these items too much to part with them. Pearl Blossom is my go-to highlighter when I wear a pink blush and Mothbrown is a beautiful cool toned charcoal shade. I love wearing Mothbrown with other gray/taupe/silver shades and it makes a beautiful smokey eyes.
MAC Strange Hybrid Lipstick - Strange Hybrid Collection (2007)
This is a light pink shade with silverized pigments and has a frost finish. I don't use for Strange Hybrid often now amongst the sea of my lipsticks. But I did use to wear it a lot when it first came out. I just don't fancy frosted lips these days and am more into sophisticated mattes or luscious creamy lips.
