I recently purchased my first-ever MAC lipstick! I had been put off from doing so because MAC makeup in Canada is significantly more expensive than in the US. Add the sales taxes to the already increased price, and...it just doesn`t make it worth it for me to buy it where I live. I could have ordered MAC makeup online, but apparently, most MAC makeup that is sold outside of the official MAC website is fake, according to what I have heard. So I did my research and discovered a seller that has had great reviews and that has deemed legit by many MAC aficionados. If you are interested, their online shop can be found http://stores.homestead.com/Rock-The-Catwalk/StoreFront.bok. I would still recommend doing your research to see if buying from this store is appropriate for you (but that goes for anything that you buy online. All Cosmetics Wholesale is the other site that came up as a legit MAC seller, but from what I have read, the shipping prices are pretty steep, especially if you live outside of the U.S. In any case, I received my MAC lipstick and am very happy with it! It smells like vanilla, which I love. The lasting power is great for a glossy lipstick like this one. And I just *love* the berry-red colour and slightly shiny finish! It will be a great shade for the fall. In the interest of full disclosure...I only paid $4.48 for this lipstick due to a small imperfection caused by some slight melting during shipping You can hardly tell, though...it looks exactly as it was described on the website (you can see a pic and description of it http://stores.homestead.com/Rock-The-Catwalk/-strse-1751/*CLEARANCE*-MAC-Lipstick-|/Detail.bok. So, I got my first MAC lipstick for less than $5 and finally understand what all the fuss is about. I am really happy with the seller I bought it from and will certainly continue to purchase cosmetics from her. :) P.S. Here is a really good video on how to spot fake MAC lipsticks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LF8FbTN2JNU.
