Back 2 M.A.C + Lipsticks!

Hi Lovelies
Have you heard about M.A.C's recycling program, called Back 2 M.A.C.
Don't throw away that empty foundation bottle just yet!

MAC will accept 6 full size empties and receive a free lipstick!
Which got me thinking when it comes to choosing a MAC lipstick or if it is your first time purchasing a lipstick it can be overwhelming when there are so many shades and finishes to choose from, so I though I would break it down.


-FINISHES-
Matte- Opaque coverage and long wearing, can be drying on the lips.
Retro Matte- Flat opaque coverage, can be very drying, also very long wearing.
Satin- Semi matte sheen, generally have a good opaque coverage. (fave)
Amplified- Heavy opaque coverage, great colour pay off and has a light sheen finish.
Amplified Creme- Creamy glossy finish with a short wear time, can also bleed a bit.
Cremesheen- a high pigmentation but don't wear very long with its glossy texture. (fave)
Frost- Quite a sparkly finish or even metallic, not personally a fave. definitely swatch before purchasing.
Lustre- Sheer but buildable with a glossy finish, wear time about 3-4 hours.
