The MAC Grey Friday Collection is a MAC Black Friday release that includes Grey Friday Lipstick and Grey Friday Nail Polish that will be available for a limited time.
I love the idea of a special, limited edition collection to celebrate Black Friday however, I’m unsure how many folks are going to be able to pull off Grey Friday Lipstick. It’s rather….unique!
Take a look!
MAC Grey Friday Lipstick will retail for $15 and be available along with Grey Friday Nail Polish Black Friday, November 23rd only at the MAC Times Square Store or online at www.maccosmetics.com
MAC describes this lipstick as a black grey with silver shimmer and a frost finish. They actually get the product description down very well this time as that’s about what you get. It’s more grey than black with plenty of silver shimmer. Although a frost finish it actually applies with a creamy, easy glide on my lips. I typically have issues with frosts applying dry and/or patchy. But this is creamy and wears very comfortable. And heck it even looks smooth on lips, you’d expect a shade like this to apply patchy and possibly look dry but I had no issues with it. I wouldn’t call it completely opaque but you can build it up to a full color finish.
Although a vampy, goth shade it’s actually easy enough to wear. Granted, I’m not brave enough to head out of the house quite yet with silverish grey lipstick on my lips but it doesn’t look entirely bad. If your lips are more pigmented it’ll come across considerably more berry which is a good thing in my opinion. My lips aren’t completely pale but they aren’t heavily pigmented either, I’m in between…so the shade comes across kinda plummy on me.
If you want to use it as a base of sorts over or under a festive red it actually makes such shades pop. This is particularly helpful if you find red a difficult color to pull off. Heck even a plum shade will go along very nicely with this.
Count me shocked as I find the color very versatile and a handy tool for using as a base or overcoat. I expected to hate this but I’m well on my way to actually embracing it.
I wouldn’t write it completely off, if you’re doing an order anyway from MAC on Black Friday I’d suggest popping it in your cart. I think you might be surprised with this one!
Will you be purchasing it?
What do you think of the shade?
