MAC Lips, Lips, Lips

I really didn’t need a reminder, but I was lucky enough to get one anyway.  MAC recently sent me a huge box filled with fabulous lip products, as an amazing reminder that the brand offers just about every color in every fabulous finish and texture under the sun! In the 90s, MAC Lipstick established itself as the premiere lipstick brand.  Everyone I knew had at least one, and raved about them regularly.  The brand balanced prestige with performance, and as a result decades later its solid reputation remains.  This post will serve as your personal reminder, from gloss to matte, from blue to red… MAC has something perfect for you!  This post features a selection of MAC Lipstick in every color of the rainbow, and you shouldn’t hesitate to add your favorites to your cart NOW!  Currently MAC is offering one free lipstick with the purchase of any two lip products.  Steal alert! 

MAC Lipstick generally retails for $17 (unless it’s a limited-edition collection).  Keep scrolling to see each of the lipsticks featured above close-up and swatched!
