MAC is wild wack for the stunt they pulled this morning.
I called myself getting there “early” by getting there at 9:45am. Swoop in swoop out get my lipstick maybe get a complimentary (paid of course) lip liner because I mean I just got a free lipstick right? Wrong. The line was insane. Like INSANE. But it’s MAC it’s free and it’s a large selection to chose from so… I’ll wait.
Then an (un)fortunate happenstance occurred. The line ended at the beginning allowing me to see the colors available for free. Y’all… y’all:
This was it. This was what they had to choose from. A FAR cry from all the beautiful colors they teased on their Instagram feed. I mean I know it said selection but all of these colors look the same. I was like (#throwback) “thank you based god for letting me see this foolery here at MAC today.” Still of fan of MAC. NOT a fan of the shenanigans.
Well it’s #NationalLipstickDay and true to form MAC is re-emerging as a heavy hitter. Not that MAC hasn’t ALWAYS produced high quality makeup, however the emerging of lower cost products with comparable quality has clearly given the more high end brands a run for their money. Their #Lipslipslips campaign has been blessing us all summer. But I don’t see anyone doing this. I tell you what… I choose free lipstick over free shipping any day!
So here is the rundown:
- You don’t need to buy ANYTHING to get a free lipstick!
- It’s first come for serve while supplies last.
- It’s in person NOT online
- From what I’ve researched, much like the campaign last month, there is a special selection of lipstick that you choose from.
Fingers crossed to some dope colors that I don’t already own!! Makes sure to get out today and get you one! Tag me on IG with your purchase & a kiss face! @fashionunder50
