I have been hoarding my MAC empties for a loooong time. I kept forgetting to take them with me on trips to the mall. This time I planned ahead. I had twelve empty containers that qualified for the MAC recycling program, Back-2-MAC.
With Back-2-MAC you give 6 empty primary packaging containers and get one free lipstick. Since I had twelve eligible items, I was able to pick 2 free lipsticks. The first was a no-brainer: Angel. Angel is my favorite lipstick from MAC and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that pick. It's is a popular pink frost lipstick.
My second pick was not as simple. I wanted to try a brighter, bolder color. I opted for Lickable but the counter I was at didn't have any in stock, so I was pointed to a similar shade, Rebel. In the tube, Rebel looks like a dark vampy purple that I would totally shy away from. When applied, it looks more like a wearable burgundy. It can be applied in a sheer layer and built up for more intensity. If I dab it on my lips, it looks like I just ate a popsicle - a burgundy berry popsicle. It has a satin finish.
Aside from lipsticks, I really wanted to peek at the eyeshadows. I can't leave the MAC counter without at least one. There are tons of beautiful shades. Since I already have plenty of nudes and neutrals (thank you UD Naked 1 & 2!), I wanted more color!
Heroine from the Fashion Sets collection grabbed me and pulled me in. I saw it while contemplating my lipstick choices. It's a bluish purple shadow with a satin finish. It's just completely gorgeous!
For the second shade, the MAC artist that was helping me suggested Rule. It's a medium orange shade with a matte finish. She said it was a great color for the crease. I don't have any shades like this so she totally sold me on it. I'm excited to use it!
So, now the giveaway details! You're probably wondering what it is that I'm giving away. I mentioned earlier that Angel was my favorite lipstick and I wanted to keep it for myself, but I thought it would be much more fun to give it away to one of you!
