Back to MAC

15 Nov

MAC, the cosmetic company, have a brilliant ‘green’ policy called ‘Back to MAC‘ whereby they give you a free lipstick when you return six empty MAC containers.


After about three years of trying to save up enough empty containers to claim my free lipstick, and often forgetting and chucking them, I finally had six. So on my lunch hour on Monday, off I popped to the MAC shop and picked my free lippy!

My free MAC lipsticks: ‘Modest’ and ‘See Sheer’

This is a big step for me. I’ve always thought of lipstick as a thing that mums wear. I’ve always been a lip gloss wearer, it feels young and funky and it doesn’t make such a bold statement on your face like lipstick does. But now that I’m getting on a bit (I’m 27) it’s time to take the leap and upgrade to lipstick. So after some help from the MAC assistant (my friend Kerry) I left the shop with not one, but two lipsticks. A safe colour called ‘Modest’ and one a little bit crazier called ‘See Sheer’.

Now I just have to learn how to apply it in a way that doesn’t look like I did it with my eyes shut!

    I love those two colors….!
    For your fears, I know that MAC also have some lipstick that are not too pigmented, it could be a good ”first start” for you …And, if you still want more coverage, well you know, you can use a brush to apply it, so you don’t get the look so characteristic of lipstic….

      Thanks – i’m pretty chuffed with my choices! 🙂

      That’s great to know about the less pigmented ones! Thanks!

    Love the colors! I currently have a bag of empty MAC containers in hopes to soon get some new product. Sigh, your post makes me want to go to MAC right this minute and stock up on new lipstick.
