10 MAC Lipsticks To Stock Up on (for Free!) on National Lipstick Day


Everyone chooses to celebrate National Lipstick Day in their own way–some emulate the world’s biggest stars with a bold pout, others choose to ignore it. MAC Cosmetics, on the other hand, is using the holiday to give away free lipstick this Saturday. Even better–there’s no catch. This is not a free gift with purchase, or anything like that, it’s just a lipstick giveaway. MAC has a lot of options, from bold and dramatic shades of burgundy, purple and crimson to delicate shades of rose, mauve and coral, in all finishes of matte, satin and sheer, so there’s a perfect shade for everyone. Here, 10 W editors share their favorite MAC lipsticks to help you get inspired this weekend.
