Hihi friends of the Nutt House (",)
What better way to declutter and get a new makeup product than doing a Back to M.A.C.? I have quite a few items that I have not been using for the longest time and I decided to give them Back to M.A.C. for a lipstick of my choice.
I have been holding on to the M.A.C. 2008 Adoring Carmine collection lipsticks for the longest time coz I really love the lipstick bullet. However, since I have not used them for years, I decided to send them back to M.A.C.
I realised, as I sniffed the lipsticks today, they still smell 'fresh' like how new M.A.C. lippies smell. The colour is still true to shade and the lipstick in general is very well preserved. This lead me to wonder just how much preservatives goes into M.A.C. lippies.
Here is the lipstick that I selected. Syrup, from the lustre range. I like this range coz they are kinda sheer and buildable. They way I like my lipsticks to be.
I did some research online and actually narrowed down to a couple of choices. However, when I was at the store, and was carefully scrutinizing the lipstick shades, I actually pulled out Syrup three times in a row! They actually display a few of the same shades in the display unit and each time I zoomed in on a shade and pulled the lipstick out and turned it over to check the name, I realised that all three that I pulled out were Syrup. So, I guess, I was destined to take it home with me.
Here's how it looks on me (",) A slight mauve pink.
Do note that the Back to M.A.C. program is not applicable for the Viva Glam lipsticks. The lady that I asked at the Bugis store told me that I can select from the newly launched range and that got me excited. However, when I went to the Tampines Mall store, the lady told me that I cannot select from the new M.A.C. Chen Man collection. Also, for Back to M.A.C. items, they will slash the label at the bottom of the lipstick coz they will not accept this as a future Back to M.A.C. item. I had expected this coz I've read it on some blogs. However, my heart was aching when the BA did the slashing... ... ...
Do you ladies have M.A.C. items that you're abandoned? It would be fun to declutter and do a Back to M.A.C. with the items (",)
Talk to you ladies soon!!!
