|Mac cremesheen lipstick in ????|
I think I have discovered a new favourite Mac lipstick-and quite by accident too!
Back to Mac is a scheme Mac runs to encourage recycling of it's packaging. They accept anything made of plastic so even items like the empty Mac make up remover wipes qualify. Once you have 6 empties you can pop into any Mac store or concession (or you can send them to Mac) and in return, Mac will give you a free lipstick.
I recently found myself with the required 6 empties-2 Mineralize SkinFinish, 2 Blot Powders, a lipstick and an empty eye make up remover so I headed down to the Mac concession in Harvey Nichols at Mall of the Emirates.
I had no idea what I was going to get in terms of the lipstick-owning over 30 Mac lipsticks already means I know what I like and what formulas I prefer. I wanted something new-and after a lot of umming and ahhing I settled on a cremesheen formula called On Hold. I had never even heard of this lipstick before and I could pretty much reel off 50 Mac lipstick names off the top of my head right now.

And it is LOVE. Oh my goodness. This is a red-y, pink-y, coral-y pigmented colour that is gorgeous on the lips. Mac describe it as a 'mid tone yellow raspberry'. In certain lights I can definitely pick up a golden tint to it. It lasts ages and fades nicely and doesn't bleed. Even my boss said 'nice lipstick!' when I walked in the office yesterday morning. It's definitely a new favourite! I'm amazed that this isn't already in my collection.

The process was very easy, I literally walked in with my 6 empties and signed for my brand new beautiful lipstick-simple!
