Before I get into this post I need your help! I’m undecided as to whether I should change my url to just Pretty Little instead of Pretty Little Beauty Blog as I feel like the latter is slightly too long, what do you think? Hmm.
Anyway, on with the post! If you didn’t know, Mac run a scheme where you can hand in six empty Mac items into the store and in exchange you get to choose a free lipstick. How generous! You probably already know but I thought I’d recap just in case you didn’t! As I had quite a little collection of empty products building up, I thought now was a better time than any to add yet another Mac lipstick to my stash.
I took in two empty bottles of Studio Fix Fluid, which is my favourite foundation as it’s got really great coverage and is really long wearing! I also handed over an empty Blot Powder compact which is just the best for oily skin, it gets rid of any unwanted shine and doesn’t add any colour or coverage so no matter how much you apply it won’t go cakey! Lastly I gave in two Prep + Prime highlighters in Light Boost and the remains of my old Pure Zen lipstick, both of which I spoke about in my 2014 Favourites here if you’d like to read more!
I chose to get Patisserie as my free lipstick which is a really pretty natural pink shade, what a shock another neutral lipstick! I swear I have an absolute ton of the same lipstick colour that only I could tell the difference between haha, I can’t help it okay. I did question whether I should get something bright like Ruby Woo or Show Orchid, but I’d probably only use them once in a blue moon so at least with a nude lipstick I know I’m going to get lots of use out of it! Whilst I was there I also purchased another Blot Powder, my third to be exact, would’ve been rude not to wouldn’t it!
What are your favourite Mac products?
