But when I saw that MAC had confirmed the release of their Cinderella collection - I was more than a little interested. I wrote a blog post about it - which you can read here - and even set a countdown on my phone once the the date had been released *I'm not even ashamed about how crazy this may (definitely) make me seem*.
My excitement (crazy) levels continued to rise the closer the release date got.. I found myself looking at the #MACCinderella trend on Twitter, simply to read the thoughts & opinions of people who were as excited as me. Then.. the night finally came. Twitter was alive with nervous/excited chit chat.. What time would MAC release the collection? How fast would it sell out? Would we be able to get our hands on the items our hearts are set on?
All life changing questions - of course.
Now - like I said - I don't usually get super excited over new collection releases. However the night before this release I forced myself to stay up until midnight (Cinderella... Midnight... I thought this made sense for the release time) but was greeted with disappointment when alas it wasn't released. So I decided that, as I had work the following day, I couldn't/wouldn't be waking up every hour to check.. (although when I happened to wake up at 4am and when my boyfriend left for work at 6am I'll admit that I did quickly refresh the page on my phone.. just be to safe).
I even found myself dreaming that the collection had sold out - resulting in me waking up in a panic.. (You'd be right to think I was going slightly crazy here.. I thought it about myself too.. But, lipstick!!)
Unfortunately I had to accept that the world wouldn't be stopping because of the release of the MAC's most recent collection.. so I trotted off to work & excitedly explained to my colleagues all about my nervous night of waiting & the excitement (admittedly, most of who didn't quite understand what I was jabbering on about or why I was so excited).
I decided to have one more look at the MAC website - not expecting anything & accepting that there was a high chance that I would miss the launch - only to be delighted to see that.. wait.. what?!... it had launched.. (oh the joy).
It's safe to say I have never selected an item & checked out so fast in my life. If there was some sort of online shopping Olympics.. I certainly would have won gold. I contemplated going back to have a quick look at the other products but luckily thought against it, checked out and paid.
I then proceeded to happily skip around the office.. much to the amusement/confusion of most of the people I work with.
Two/Three days later.. on a dreary weekday morning, I wander into the office & what's that sat on my desk... is it from MAC?! OH MY GOD IT IS!!
& finally.. here it is...
I think from now on I'll definitely be showing a lot more excitement towards new make-up collections.. But hopefully there wont be any more panic-stricken dreams!
This post did originally start out as a review.. but I ended up jabbering on about simply buying the lipstick (who knew it could be such a dramatic event?!) but I'll definitely look into doing a separate review post for this lipstick.
Did you manage to get any products from the MAC Cinderella collection?
