I Got Four Lipsticks Free from MAC!

Lip Color: MAC Lustering

Hey Yall!  You know how much I love playing in makeup.  I'm no makeup guru, but I enjoy learning and using the latest beauty products.


Lately, I haven't been wearing as much makeup, and that's because it's summer and I don't want my face melting off, plus I'm digging a more natural look.


I told y'all last year that I gave up on MAC's Cosmetics foundations due to it breaking my skin out and being too heavy on my face, however, I didn't stop using their other products like their eyebrow pencil and lipsticks.

Speaking of lipsticks, did you know I haven't paid a single dime for any lipsticks I have from MAC?  Yep, true!  And it's all thanks to their recycling program.  When you save six empty containers from MAC and return them to a MAC Cosmetic store, you can choose one certain lipstick for free.


So, I've been stocking up my empty MAC containers for over a year now and got to choose four new lipsticks.  So here's the math:


6 empty containers = 1 free lipstick

I received four free lipsticks, so that means I turned in 24 empty makeup bottles.  Wow, that's a lot of makeup products I used, but it was mainly empty eyebrow pencils.


I don't wear lipstick all the time since my lips are naturally colored, but when I do wear lipstick the colors I choose are more of a natural red or pink tones.  I'm not all about the drama on my lips with colors like blue, purple, and yellows.  I guess you can call me Plain Jane.


Check out the lippies I picked out.  I did swatches for you.  Do you think I did a good job choosing the colors?

I will say this about MAC lipsticks; they have some of the most beautiful, vibrant, pigmented shades of colors.  Perfect for everyone's taste levels.  Some colors give the lips a shiny effect, and some of MAC's lipsticks are matte for all day lasting power.


I prefer the lipsticks that are not matte because matte has my lips dry, cracking, and peeling.  So not a good look.  The lipsticks that are creamy textured doesn't last all day, but the way it has my lips poppin' like lip gloss I don't mind reapplying.


Remember National Lipstick Day is July 29th!  Make sure to show off your cutest lippies! 






Do you base your lipstick colors on whatever season it is?

  4. You did a great job taking advantage of that program! I think it would take me too long to use mine up because I have so many different lipstick that I love.

  5. I didn't realize they had a program like that. What a great idea! I usually buy drugstore make up but I may have to start saving my pennies to try out Mac. Love that!
