Some people collect stamps. Some collect coins. Some even collect little bugs. My collection obsession of choice is MAC's limited edition special packaging lipsticks. Yes, specifically, lipsticks. Yes, specifically MAC, and yes, it doesn't matter what color is in the tube (usually) It all started before I was even obsessed with beauty as I am now and was even in the know. In 2011, when I was still in high school, MAC came out with a Wonder Woman collection. I loved me some super heroes and after seeing the packaging I was beyond in awe! Luckily there was a MAC a few blocks from my school so as soon as my friend told me about the collection we raced to get our hands on one. That was it. I became enchanted with the special packaging MAC could create for specific seasons and themes. It's not to say I buy a lipstick from every specially packaged collection- only the ones I truly fall in love with, but even if I'm not totally in love with the color, I'll get my favorite or the most wearable out of the bunch.
The way we reflect on make up casings from the 40s, 50s and 60s, I want to be able to do that with these lipsticks. Maybe if MAC is still kicking around when I have a daughter and she's old enough, I can show her the beauty that some of the MAC packaging is. I'm still kicking myself for not getting one from the Archie's Girls collection. I was such a huge fan of those comics and I don't know why I let my wallet talk me out of it, haha! I'm really looking forward to the future collections MAC has in store and rest assured that if MAC can come up with more brilliance, I'll be there to hand off my pretty pennies (which is a lot of pretty pennies at this point, dang inflation of prices!!) Especially is they come back with a Disney collection. I'd be all over that!
Is there anything that you guys collect?
Are you a special packaged MAC collector, as well?
I feel like I can't be the only one, haha!
What packaging would you like to see MAC come out with?
