Ready to stand in long lines so you can play grabsies with a bunch of crazies looking for the newest, shiniest gifts? Hey, I can’t be hating; I’ve definitely scored some amazing items on Black Friday, the busiest shopping day in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE. And, though so many seriously strange stories arise from this consumers’ dream day, it cannot be denied that every once in awhile, a cool product makes its debut on Black Friday.

This year’s cool beauty item: MAC Grey Friday Lipstick and Nail Varnish duo. Now, before you start questioning one’s sanity over possibly-maybe purchasing a grey lipstick, let me tell you that this is actually a product trend that has slowly been developing. Several months ago, I received a tube of Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquer in Film Noir. Grey with opalescent shimmer, it stood out amongst its sister tubes. “What the hell?” I thought to myself.

The reality of the grey lip hue is that it is a layering agent, meant to morph other lip colors. When swiped over your favorite lip hue, it “tones” it. Think of it like actual “toner” for hair: When your blonde is too brassy or when your colorist wants to make a slight adjustment to your hair’s tone, they apply toner. Voila! The color is re-set and refined. That’s how a grey lip shade works as well.

You can actually wear Grey Friday Lipstick alone without appearing like an extra from The Walking Dead. Because, think of this: We all have natural color in our lips; the grey simply “tones” it to a slightly darker version of itself. So, in effect, Grey Friday gives you a wine stain if you dab it on, or a pretty dark burgundy lip if you really slather it on. Either way: It ain’t grey.

MAC Grey Friday is available on Black Friday, November 23, on maccosmetics.com.
