It is really hard to restraint yourself from buying all these things that make you happy and pretty at the same time!!!!
MAC, I have to admit that as much as I love you, I hate you. I hate you for coming up with so many collections per year, so many beautiful products in each collection, for having the best ads and promotions and sometimes even the cutest packaging. For all that I hate you, but yet so I find myself running to a MAC store every time a new collection comes out, feeling the urge to AT LEAST see it from up close and get the chance to reject it…which I rarely do!
I usually find myself buying at least one product per collection (with great restraint), unless it is really repetitive or is introduced really close to the previous one. In Greece, the collections are introduced later than the U.S, and often two collections may arrive simultaneously, which kinda makes it easier to control yourself.
Ladies, welcome to the world of marketing, which combined with our vanity creates a lethal combination!!!! Amazing photos and looks combined with often smart packaging and unique colorful makeup products at an affordable price makes the collections appealing to everyone. MAC promotes some easy-to-wear shades within its collections that are totally wearable for normal day to day activities, and some extreme colors and obnoxious shades that are pretty hard to wear. But, then again that is something that only a company like MAC could pull off…..
Lately, Ι 've been hearing and reading quite a few complaints from people who are big fans of MAC, about the number of collections the Company comes out with, every year. The truth is that if you are a MAC fan, it is really hard to keep up with all these collections- especially moneywise. Additionally, if you watch the colors closely enough, you’ll notice that -after a point- they start to repeat themselves. And it is normal, because their standard collection includes hundreds of colors to begin with, so if we also add the limited edition ones…
MAC is a company highly inspired by art, unique personalities, elements and events. On their behalf, they too encourage creativity through the collections and the eye catching colors and textures, but my question is how long can they still produce products with a small twist in the shade of a color or consistency? The Company is known for its ground breaking cosmetics not for the repetitions within its collections.
Makeup is a form of art, and art should not become a mass product!
