Hey guys! I thought that maybe I'd tell you guys how one of my strange encounters with MAC went. This isn't exactly a new story, as it happened maybe about 2 months ago, but I forgot about it and just remembered it!
So it started out like this...
My mom and I were at the local mall, and just like any other mall in Toronto, it has a MAC counter. So I stopped by the counter because I wanted to pick up Macroviolet Fluidline and Studio Fix Powder. So I stopped by, and there was only one MA at the time since it was a weekday, and she was helping another customer so my mom and I just waited and swatched some items. So then it's my turn, and she comes up to me with this "I'm so tired get me out of here" look.
So I'm like... Hey, could you get me a Studio Fix Powder in NC25? She was like... Oh NO! You're definitely NC30, theres no way you could be NC25! I thought in my head... uhm, YOUR people ALWAYS match me to NC25... and she didn't even offer to try NC30 on me. I thought that since I was probably gonna get darker later, I'll just take NC30. Life went on.
So then I ask her to give me a Fluidline in Macroviolet. She was like... what? Theres no shade called Macroviolet, are you sure it's not a limited edition colour? I was like... no, i'm pretty sure I saw it on the MAC website. So she just completely ignores me and goes into the thing and gives me Waveline Fluidline, and shes like.. oh Navy Blue would look nice. I already had like... 10 navy liners, so I just told her to forget it and i'll walk around for more.
Then to my "suprise" I'm just looking at some eyeliners, and I FIND MY MACROVIOLET. So I just hand it to her and I'm like, I was looking for this. So I hand it to her and she searches for literally 5 minutes and I'm just standing there. There she finds it and I pay.
I'm not trying to attack any of you if you're a MAC or any type of MUA, but seriously... if you can work for the brand, shouldn't you at least know the products? I swear, I know the prices better than the MA serving me... how is this fair? I feel a bit like a loser, but I remember all the products from MAC and their prices; I'm sure that's a makeup junkie characteristic!
