Yes, it was a natural pink lipstick, I believe by covergirl in 6th/7th grade, when my mom finally let me wear make up. I remember applying a lot, too much in one day at school…Because it was new to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m going to class this is like “MAKE UP” not just stuff I used here and there to cover blemishes etc..

So I would say Mac Amber Lights Eyeshadow, Mac Myth Lipstick (Cringe… haha), A Clinique Foundation of some sort and Mac golden Bronzer I think?

the only one of those products I still like is Amber Lights haha =)

Clinique Almost Makeup and Almost lipstick in Black Honey, and Bonne Bell Bronzer Gel. Can you still buy that? I’m saving one last tube from years and years ago!

I LOVED dollar store makeup when I was younger (around 13-15 years old). my mom used to send me in with $5 or $10, and I’d spend an hour looking through the small selection, trying to pick out the best colors of eyeliner and lipstick. I’d always leave with a few new things, and it was a great way for me to satisfy my craving for new things without emptying my mom’s wallet ๐Ÿ˜› my first purchase was a bright turquoise eyeliner. I still have it, purely for nostalgia.

I’m pretty sure it’d be some GWP item from Clinique when I was in high school, but I had NO idea how to use ANYTHING back then so I probably played with it a couple of times and left it there!

As it took me until I was 16 to actually discover MAC (small Australian country towns…) my first product would have been a Maybelline Mascara and lipgloss as my Mum has always used Maybelline, Loreal and Revlon so growing up I believed them to be the only real brands out there lol.

First ever beauty product was an orange Crush fat lipbalm bought by my mum. I still have it in my collection. It’s all crusty and still smells a bit like orange Crush … I know very gross ๐Ÿ˜ก

The first product I bought on my own … It was either Corn Silk powder, Coty spun powder or Max Factor powder. They were all bought around the same time … MANY years ago.

I started wearing makeup in highschool and I couldn’t afford any department store makeup. I started off wearing a bunch of crappy drug store foundations like covergirl and cornsilk. But my first eyeshadow was Jane eyeshadow in Browny points which I thought was pretty damn good at the time!

The first product I remember buying was Maybelline Kissing Coolers. They were weird colors and probably totally unflattering but they tasted AMAZING.

It was the Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara along with a black Maybelline khol eyeliner. I was like 12 or 13.

Mac Jest eyeshadow. I still have the pan even though I don’t touch it because the eyeshadow itself is over 12 years old (ew!) I just can’t bear to throw it away

I had some from CVS, by Jane probably, but the first “real” products I got were from Clinique. I got pressed powder, gray(?) eyeliner, and the Plum Seduction palette.

My first makeup purchase was in high school (10th grade) & it was MAC powerpoint eyeliner in Engaved. My friend loved MAC eyeliner. I bought 3 of them before I realized that it smudged like crazy after a couple of hours.

My first makeup received was a GWP neutral duo palette from Clinque from my mother. I loved it and wore it everyday in high school.
