Back to MAC

40 comments
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you're all having a nice weekend.
Well, the weather has finally improved in London. We had a bit of sunshine this morning and I managed to take some pictures for my blog. 
I'm really excited to bring you my first Back to MAC post. 
 Back to MAC is a scheme that MAC do. If  you return MAC 6 empties to a MAC counter, you get a free full size MAC lipstick of your choice (excluding VIVA Glam lipsticks). 
You can also Back to MAC your empties online, click here to find out how.
Please note, the empties don't have to be lipsticks!
Here are my 6 MAC empties that I exchanged for a lipstick:
 Sadly it was neglected in my make up collection for about 3 years and had completely dried up. I didn't quite use this up but I decided to Back to MAC it as I knew I couldn't use it any more and there's no point in keeping it. I would repurchase this though as it's such a beautiful colour that works great on it's own or as an eyeshadow base.
  This is one of my holy grail products. I go through quite a lot of these and they are brilliant for cleaning your make up brushes. I love using this for cleaning my eyeshadow brushes!
This is MAC'S gel eyeliner. Another great product by MAC. I've got another one of these to get through but I'd really like to try the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner so I won't be repurchasing this until I've tried the Maybelline one as it's a lot cheaper and just as good I've been told!
This is a lovely foundation. It smells a little bit of pain and does not come with a pump. These are the 2 downsides to it. But other than that I like it because it gives medium to full coverage. It doesn't feel to heavy on the skin. It's also quite long wearing and if you like foundations with more of a matt finish definitely check this one out!
MAC Pro Lash Mascara in Coal Black (discontinued)
This product has been discontinued so I won't go on about it too much. It lasted me ages and didn't dry up which was the best thing about it. It's a shame that it has been discontinued.
This is a great pen for filling in your eyebrows. I prefer it to brow pencils. I find it quite tricky to fill in my brows with a brow pencil that's too short as  I've sharpened loads of times. This is great because you just twist the pen to bring out the product, so the pen never gets too short!
Does anyone know if you can use empty MAC wipes towards your 6 items?
The MAC artist wasn't sure so I've not used these towards and exchange yet. All other products are exchangeable, except for pencils as they are not 'plastic or glass' packaging.
Here is the lipstick I decided to exchange these empties against:
MAC Cosmo is an amplified finish. 
Amplified finishes are very creamy and shiny but not glossy. They are highly pigmented.

The colour is a pinky-brown. It's very natural looking. I would say it's definitely one of those 'your lips but better' lipsticks! It's going to be one of my new favourites so check it out next time your at a MAC counter!
What's your favourite MAC lipstick?

  3. If gel eyeliners or paint pots dry up. All you had to do it put it in a microwave for a few seconds and it makes the product moist again.

  8. Gorgeous MAC shade.

    It looks so practical for everyday wear, I'd probably wear it to office. :) I always like a bit of pink in my lipsticks, & always have a hard time wearing nudes, so this one looks close to perfect.

    My fav has to be Impassioned & Cosmo. :)
