You know how you sometimes find a 500 Rs note in your old jeans pocket. Its like that feeling of happiness that makes you want to jump around and be like this:

For me, its the same feeling when I do a ‘ Back to Mac’ purchase ! For the ones who dont know, Back to Mac is when you return 6 old Mac products and you get a mac lipstick for absolutely free. Surprisingly enough, I only did my first back to mac yesterday when I bought this Lustering Lipstick !!!

Honestly, pretty much all mac lipsticks which I thought would look good on me , I have in my stash I have, so its getting harder and harder to pick out new colors but lustering was exactly the kind of lipstick I was looking for. Its a medium rose pink- great as an everyday pink without being brown, and nice enough for an effortless breezy brunch date ! This is a really nice pink for medium and even darker skin tones- its muted and has a warm undertone !

Lustering is a lustre finish by Mac. This means these are semi sheer, and they dont last as long as some of the other finishes do , however personally with summer approaching, lustre finishes are always great to have because they are incredibly lightweight and give this juicy, glossy effect. My favourite mac lipsticks continue to be cremesheens, but I do like the lustre finishes too!
