It’s not often we get rewarded for being a beauty hoarder, but recently I managed to turn all of the above into three shiny new pristine lipsticks from MAC. The Back 2 MAC scheme enables us to exchange the packaging of 6 primary empty MAC products for a lipstick of our choice for free. I admit, I have not used all of the colours pictured above right down to the pans. In fact, some of them were hardly touched. They were however getting very old and in vivid bright colours that were not me and I was highly unlikely to use them again. I took these to MAC and exchanged them for colours that have been on my wish list for a while. Ruby Woo, Lipblossum and Creme Cup. It feels great having had a clear out of all my old makeup, and even better swapping it all for these beauties.
Ruby Woo is a Retro Matte finish that is iconic. I have wanted this colour for years but never got around to buying it. It is every bit as beautiful as I thought it would be. It’s a red that I think would suit a wide range of skin tones. I applied mine with a lip brush to create extra definition around the cupids bow. I’m so pleased I chose this colour and can’t wait to wear it in the coming weeks.
Lipblossum was the wild card out of the three. Having recently seen a YouTube review I thought I would give it a go. It is a Lustre lipstick and is a warm peachy pink colour that looks very pretty and is easy to wear. Longevity is not all that great but that is to be expected with a lustre finish. I think this lipstick would also be universally flattering. This colour is unlike any colour I have.
Finally, Creme Cup. A favourite amongst beauty fans. A Cremesheen finish and every bit as pretty as I hoped it would be. It’s a beautiful soft pink shade in the tube but I think it may be slightly too light for my colouring. It is very moisturising and easy to wear and I am looking forward to using it. I think this would be very pretty layered over a darker matte shade on me so I will let you know if I discover any good combinations.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and seeing the colours I chose. Now that I have bought the colours off my MAC lipstick wish list I need some recommendations from you on what I should be buying next!
And finally, its worth remembering that Back 2 MAC is proof that having a MAC addiction can be rewarding!
Talk to you all soon x
