I gave up nonessential shopping as a sport right about the time my daughter Manon, who turns 10 this June, was born. I probably couldn’t count more than a dozen shopping trips for just myself and they are usually for clothing. However, in the past few years, I have managed to squeeze in biannual beauty pilgrimages to restock and supplement my makeup basics. The rest of the beauty goodies in my kit are usually gathered from swag bags and the office beauty giveaway counter.
So when I was asked to check out the new MAC counter at the flagship location of Century 21 in lower Manhattan, I hurled myself at the chance to dedicate a couple of hours to the cause of my face and shopping research.
