MAC Smoked Purple Lipstick


I mentioned in my Selfridges Perfecting Beauty event post that I got myself a new MAC Lipstick from Back to MAC’ing 6 of my empty MAC products. I took back 3 eyeshadow pots that had been de-potted into a palette, an empty MSF and 2 empty duo eyeshadow pots and for all of those, you get to choose a FREE lipstick. I had in mind a purple, it was going to be Rebel but when I saw this, I knew I needed it. 

Smoked Purple is kind of in-between Cyber and Rebel with more blue undertones to it and a lot darker than Rebel but not as deep and dark as Cyber, I think a lot more people will be able to pull this off compared to those who can’t pull off Cyber. It’s the perfect shade for Autumn and it goes perfect with a smokey eye or even a bold liner too! It’s a Matte Lipstick and because it’s a dark shade, you can obviously see my natural lip colour come through on the opening of my mouth but it’s unavoidable and at least means no lipstick teeth!

 You can Back to MAC your empty containers at any MAC store in return for a free lipstick of your choice (i’m not sure this includes promotional collections though) or if you’re looking for a new lipstick, you can buy them online
