Everyone remembers the first beauty product they bought for themselves. Maybe it was the foundation your older sister had on, or an eye shadow palette, as your best friend recommended. For mig var det lip gloss Paris Hilton sværger ved.
Det var 2003, og jeg var en freshman i gymnasiet. Even though I have never missed an episode of the first season Det enkle liv, Jeg spiste en Juicy Couture Terry Klud track suit, slid hårforlængelser eller slå tårne salon en gang under hendes regeringstid som en reality tv-stjerne. Basically, though I have always voted in every week to see how many times the girls would say “it’s hot” in a single episode, I was not really a fan in Paris.

What I did (and still) have in common with Hilton is our apprehensiveness to bold, bright lipsticks. Udover det gamle Hollywood-inspirerede rødt tæppemoment, hvor hun har båret en rød løv, Hilton has been loyal to his signature-lingering nude lip gloss. Skift en glat glans til en mauvey-pink læbestift, and except for a few exceptions, I’m the same too.
Og den nøjagtige nuance, as Hilton has been a fan of for over a decade strong? MAC Lipglass i Prrr. Det er en blød pinky-fersk skygge med et strejf af iskold skimmer, på ingen tid nogen teenager kunne modstå – herunder mig selv. I can read a quote from Hilton about how much she loved lipglossen when studying the pages in Teen People, one of the many magazines, I forced my mother to pick me up at grocery stores.
Jeg havde brugt makeup siden jeg var i 7. klasse. Min mor købte apoteksstiftelse for at skjule mine puberteten-fremkaldte pletter og en glitrende lille øjenskygge, som jeg bar hver dag, som jeg stadig regner med og ryster til i dag. Mænd selvom min mor støttede min interesse for makeup, tog hun linjen ved at købe produkter til mig, der var mere end $ 10.
At this time, MAC was not only a popular beauty mark on the sides of all the teenage magazines I read, but also among my friends in school too. Since it is priced at the sweet place between the pharmacy and prestige brands, it was not unimaginably affordable for teenagers like myself who did not have part-time jobs, thus its products were considered luxury.

Since I had Christmas gifts from my relative that year, I decided that I would finally “splurge” and get my first MAC product. Brandets farveinterval og regelmæssige samlinger med begrænset udgave have made it hard to say the least, but then I remembered Hilton’s neutral lip gloss.
I asked my mother to drive me to the one shopping center we had in the Canadian city, I grew up in, and take me to the MAC counter in Hudson’s Bay. Men remember about the time, I first carried Prrr, what is the most alive. The close formula meant that I only needed a single swipe with its doe foot applicator to fully coat my lips. It was wonderfully reflective and so thick that when I opened my mouth to speak, the gloss strings between my upper and lower lips succeeded as the equivalent of using a limp to fasten two pieces of paper and pull them apart before the glue torres.

It was obvious that pieces of bagels, which I would normally come from the school’s cafeteria for lunch, would hold the gloss, I was proud to pull it out of the pocket and recycle it, even though MAC’s glosser has greater residence and touch ups were ikke rigtig nødvendigt.
Finally, I became tired of glansen and moved to MAC’s Pro Longwear Fluidline gel eyeliner ($ 17; nordstrom.com) for at perfeksere den subtile cat-flick, et udseende, som jeg stadig har på de fleste dage. Selvom jeg slog mit MAC Lipglass, havde det et permanent sted i min badeværelses makeup skuffe ligesom alle mine problemer med Teen People blev gemt under min seng, indtil vi flyttede ud af mit barndomshjem, da jeg var 18 år.
