I am so excited! I have a new blog series coming your way: MAC Matters: Build A Core Collection with $21 per month.
I know that I am not alone with my love of all-things MAC. Many of you are fellow MACaddicts. When I think of MAC, besides thinking of all of their limited edition collections, I think of great basics! Seriously, I could build an entire makeup collection of just MAC products. You can cover all bases with MAC: great color selection, great quality professional products, affordably priced for a high end line, sleek packaging, and all you need for face, eyes, cheeks, and tools!
So, building a core-basics makeup collection is just the idea here. Often I go for the newest and greatest makeup item available and neglect my basics! So, follow me through this monthly journey to build my core MAC makeup items and MAC must-haves!
What inspired my series? Well, part of deciding to cancel one of my monthly beauty box subscription was the idea that I could put that $21/month to much better use. So here is the idea that hit me: I can take that $21 per month that I am no longer spending on a sample box and I can instead get some "basic items" off of my ongoing MAC wishlist from my phone! LOL, I know, I am just justifying a reason to buy MAC...but, it makes sense to me! ;) With MAC lipstick and shadow prices, I can totally be *under* my $20 budget! Sure, I have a lot of MAC items already. However, building a core collection will be so fun! What am I looking for? Well loved MAC must-haves! Core collection items that get rave reviews.
Goal: Build my core MAC Collection using an average of $21.00 per month.
- Purchase at least one item a month: If the item is under $20, I can save the remainder for the next month. While there are many items priced under $20, there are plenty that are over the $20 range that I can save for.
- Do a monthly blog post to share what I got! My goal is to continue this series for 12 months to see what kind of core collection I can build!
- To coordinate with my "Build a Core MAC Collection" purchases, I will also be posting "MAC Matters: From the Stash" reviews! These "stash" items are MAC items that I love that are already in my makeup collection. Some months, I will be "saving" my $21 to go towards a bigger MAC purchase. This is when you will likely see the "stash" posts. Or, I might include a "stash" item mini review within my "Build a Core MAC Collection" posts because if you are reading this because you want to build your own MAC collection, you might enjoy reading about what I am already using and loving!
- If this series is popular, I will repeat the series with another brand upon completion of 12 months with MAC.
I feel that this series could be fun for you readers no matter where you are in your makeup journey! If you are just getting started with makeup, building a core collection of MAC products is totally the way to go. If you are someone with a large MAC collection, I would love to hear from you! I need product recommendations for sure! Does building a core MAC collection intrigue and excite you? I invite you to build your MAC collection with me!
So, rather than seeing my monthly GLOSSYBOX box opening post in November, you will see my first installment in my MAC Matters: Build a Core Collection series! In the meantime, I would love to hear some of your MAC must-have recommendations! Feel free to comment below or leave a comment on my facebook, twitter, or instagram!
