Thanks, Back to MAC!

Vegas Volt

I’m sure that Jules and I have mentioned the Back to MAC Program before, but for those who don’t know, it’s an initiative by MAC  to encourage the recycling  of their empty products. So, if you take 6 empty MAC products to any MAC counter or MAC Cosmetics online, you’ll receive a free MAC lipstick of your choice. Sweet deal or what?! 

I recently saved up enough empties to cash in and get a free lipstick, and I decided on ‘Vegas Volt’, a brightened orange-coral with a creamy, opaque finish (it’s an amplified creme formulation). It immediately went onto my lust list after seeing it in Alix from I Covet Thee’s June Favourites video: 

It’s a very rich, intense color that definitely brightens the complexion. Although it can be worn opaque, I like to dial it down a notch my mixing it with some lip balm for more of a sheer finish, and it looks stunning. This is my new spring/summer lippie for sure (although as I type this, the sky is black and it’s pouring with rain, so who knows when that’ll be)!

    I love the Vegas Volt! I have it too and it’s such a gorgeous pop of colour <3! The whole initiative is similar to the Lush one where you return 5 empty clean pots and you get a free fresh facemask.. I'm a serious Lush addict and have already claimed 2 free masks and am almost ready to claim my third haha…

    I watched that video last month and made a note of that shade! I now have three shades that I want to buy from Mac. Dangerous times…

      It’s so beaut – you can try mine first to see if you like it. Although, you look so gorgeous with a bold lip, it’ll be a slam dunk! xxx
