Sorry for my extended absence. It was in part due to me not having a camera (I loaned it to my brother weeks ago and he has yet to return it) and in part due to my laziness as it is summer break. Anyway, I should get my camera back this evening so another post will come along shortly.
I wanted to let you in on my experience today at MAC. As I was sitting around today, I felt the urge to go shopping. I have been in a blah mood lately and thought some makeup would lift my spirits. The closest MAC to me is a counter inside my local Macy's department store. The closest MAC store is about 20-25 minutes away, and while it isn't that far, my laziness prevailed and I ended up at the counter. I try to avoid this counter at all costs because, in my experience, the girls that work there are rude. Not only are they snotty and do act holier-than-thou, but they don't know much about the products they work around everyday. I know more about them and yet I always feel belittled when I go there. Today I wanted the Refined MSF from the Sugar Sweet collection (before it runs out and I can't get it anymore) and I had a back 2 mac so I wanted to get Creme Cup lipstick. When I asked for the MSF, she looked confused and asked if I wanted the Refined Golden bronzer. I said no and explained that I wanted the Refined Mineralized Skinfinish from Sugar Sweet. She looked at me annoyed and said, "Look honey, what do you want?". She spoke to me like an idiot. When I asked for Creme Cup, she said that nothing like that has ever existed. Um, excuse me? Yes, it does. She was adamant that it didn't and that I must have gotten the name wrong. Again I explained it to her and how I had just seen it on the website. Her response? "Then go order it." I've never wanted to slap someone so much. Total disrespect. And I am always shocked when fellow bloggers and youtubers tell stories about how sweet their MA's are. I have never had a nice one here. She then attempted to explain to me the difference between the counter and a freestanding store, which I had pointed out to her just minutes before. Needless to say, I am never going to buy anything from that MAC counter ever again. I will trek over the 25 minutes to the store where I am treated like a person.
Aside from my rant, I haven't any done major hauling because I am trying to be good during our recession and save. I do, however, have a little accessories and clothing haul. (H&M, Express, MAC, drugstore,etc.) I'll do a nice long post once I get my camera back.
How do your MA's treat you?
