It's NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY!!!! *** hahaha. EDIT: National Lipstick Day is on JULY 29. Ultimate pregnancy brain fail. But guess what! We're STILL going to celebrate, a month early, and share with you my favorite MAC lipsticks and do a giveaway in honor national lipstick day that's actually in a month from today.
I'm all about celebrating important holidays like this 😉 and in honor of National Lipstick day I thought I'd share with you guys some of my favorite shades of my most worn brand of lipstick – MAC lipstick – and then for fun, give a couple readers some new lippies.
MAC lipsticks are amazing in color and quality. They go on your lips gently and stay for hours, have the very prettiest pigment, and blend like a dream. My favorite lipstick trick is to blend two colors at once, so sometimes it's hard for me to even remember what color I was wearing when people ask! But here are some of my tried and true faves that I ALWAYS try to keep in my arsenal:
I used to be deathly afraid of red lipstick, until I met Russian Red. A guaranteed win on EVERYONE. If you're scared of red lips too, start here!

If you've read my blog for any amount of time you probably know my favorite pink of all time EVER is MAC Snob (worn below). It is the prettiest shade of pink I've ever found, and it looks good on literally everyone. Other major faves: Angel (a super pretty nude-ish pink), Brave (a mauve-ish pink), Candy Yum Yum (the best hot pink!).
Later today I'm going to launch a little GIVEAWAY on my instagram @mintarrow to celebrate national lipstick day! I'll be giving a better sneak peek of what it is in my besties group beforehand and doing a live video about some lipstick tricks I love for National Lipstick Day.
But the National Lipstick Day giveaway will just be on instagram this afternoon and it will be a super easy, super low-key entry so make sure you are following there and can enter to win some free lipstick for you and one of your best friends!!
