[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Yes, you might well roll your eyes at all these ‘national’ days but this is worth noting I promise. From today til 31st July, MAC lipsticks are £14, the price of their mini lipsticks, instead of £20 and that feels very much like a deal to have.  I’ve tried three shades I would never buy for myself just to see if I can be more adventurous (spoiler: I can’t) so I thought I’d show you the results. I’ve taken these pictures in Portrait mode just in case you think I’ve had a face lift.

MAC National Lipstick Day

This is Honey Love described as ‘Light beige toned with rose’ and it’s matte although I have a ton of balm on underneath so it looks a bit sheeny here. I still wouldn’t ever pick it out for myself although I can see it’s much more wearable than most neutral toned lipsticks. It’s HERE.

MAC National Lipstick Day

This is Whirl, described as a ‘dirty rose’ – it’s very deep and vampy and I think I love it! Again, it’s a matte texture. It’s HERE.

MAC National Lipstick Day

This is Mehr, described as a ‘mid-tone mauve’ and it looks a bit more mauve in reality than it does in the picture which has picked out more of the pink tones. Again, it’s in the matte formula. I don’t hate it but I’d still never pick it out for myself. It’s HERE.

I definitely like this idea to reduce the price for a very short space of time – it gives it a bit of a fun element and maybe the little push you need to try something different. Do note however that postage is free only on £20+ so you’d need to have two (I mean, I know it’s only July but Christmas is always coming…!) to take advantage of that, or need a top up of something else.
