Those of you who are more makeup savvy than me probably know this, but Mac runs a pretty awesome recycling programme called Back to Mac, where you take in 6 empty products, and they give you a free lipstick. How exciting is that?!
I am a bit of a Mac addict, but even so it has taken me the best part of a year to use up six products, even at the rate I get through eyeliner and their waterproof makeup remover which is uh-mazing, so I was pretty excited to trundle off to Mac with my empties and swap them for a brand new lipstick finally.
The colour is Modesty, and it's one of their creamsheen lipsticks, which I've never tried before. I think I am probably a matt lipstick girl really, as I wasn't totally crazy for the sheer finish of this. I wasn't wowed by the service I received either as even though the store wasn't busy the assistants didn't seem that interested in helping me find the right colour, compared with the Mac concession in Selfridges Manchester, where I bought my last Mac lipstick. They were so helpful, I just wanted to hug them!
Still, it was a freebie and I do like the colour, which is a nice natural pink, so all in all I think 'Go Mac!' for recycling and generally being awesome.
