5 Fabulous MAC Lipsticks to Celebrate National Lipstick Day!

Happy National Lipstick Day, team! 💄🥰💖 I’m going need you to drop the color you’re wearing today in the comments, or, heck, even if you aren’t wearing lipstick today, what has graced your lips lately? Or, what lip color do you normally wear the most?

Here are five of my personal faves (these are all from MAC), and, uh…I wear these colors a lot! There are two bold brights — juicy red (All Fired Up) and neon pink (Candy Yum-Yum).

Of course, there are also a couple of neutrals, namely Velvet Teddy and Half ‘N Half, a.k.a. “The MAC Lipstick Loves of My Life.”

And then the “in between” color is Model Off-Duty, which is from the Powder Kiss Collection.

Let me put it this way: I LIKE THESE COLORS A LOT.

Since we’re on the topic of lipstick, when you think about it — I mean really think about it — is there a lipstick out there from any brand that makes you feel magnificent when you wear it? “Magnificent.” That’s such a powerful word, isn’t it? Magnificent! Inquiring lipstick-loving minds want to know. 😻

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    So today being national Lipstick Day I am wearing Laura Mercier Ala Rose. It is said to be a “dirty pink”, but on me it is a bright pink. I haven’t been wearing much lipstick these days, mostly tinted lip balms with SPF. I wear a mask most of the time at work, so why bother.

    Happy National Lipstick Day! Be well!

    MAC All Fired Up looks so pretty on you! Today (even though I am wearing a mask when not hiding out in my office)…I am wearing MAC Werk, Werk, Werk with a little Mac Dare You layered on top. My all time favorite lipsticks:
    Urban Decay Bruise
    MAC Dare You
    MAC Party Line
    MAC Burning Love
    Nars Dolce Vita Lip Pencil
    I love lipstick and have missed wearing it during these crazy times. Covid has made me re-think my makeup collection. When I was working from home, I barely wore any make-up for a year (I always wear make-up)! I now realize that I probably own way more than I should (Do NOT tell my husband about this confession…LOL). I am trying to use more items in my stash and buy less. BUT…it is so tempting with all the great lipstick deals today😆.

    Hi Karen! Those lipsticks look so good on you… omg Half n half looks just divine. I remember wanting to purchase it years ago when I getting into Mac lipsticks but after trying it out I felt it was too light and washed out my skin so I ended buying Twig instead (which is the first Mac lipstick I ever bought).

    As for what’s on my lips, at the moment, nothing, but I will be applying some lip balm in a bit because my lips have been super chapped and out of control lately. I happened to stumble upon the Smith and Cult CBD lip balm and it’s sooo good… It’s the Locked and Lit one (I just checked what it’s called right now 😂), kinda reminds me of the Mac Lipglasses but a little less sticky and has helped my lips heal.

    And that lipstick that makes me feel ‘Magnificent’ I would have to say is Mac’s Flat Out Fabulous, certainly rings true to its name.

    My all time favorites are Mac burning love and Charlotte tilbury bond girl lipsticks.

    Happy National Lipstick Day!

    I need model off duty in my life stat.

    I’m wearing an old Sephora lipstick today that I got on clearance for like $3 and I adore it. It’s in the car, I’ll try to find the name. It’s a great pink and feels nice on the lips and is pretty long lasting.

    There are so many great lipsticks, it’s hard to say which is magnificent. Probably I would say one of my many Bobbi Brown’s. Intense pigment but feels great.

    P.s. I ordered a Smith and Cult base coat, which arrived damaged today. I was able to slick a coat over my paws and I love it. It is really nice. They didn’t do a great job packing it up for shipping so I think that’s why part of the top was smushed in and leaky but Ulta is making it right with a new bottle.

    I love your choices! They all look great on you. I have all of them except Model Off Duty.

    No lipstick on today. It’s hot as heck and I’m just home in lip balm. Yesterday, I wore Fenty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Tiger Tini, an uber-bright, slightly red orange.

    Lately, I’ve been mostly wearing Moira Beauty Glow Getter Hydrating Lip Oils and Fenty Gloss Bombs in various shades. For lipstick, mostly Medusa’s Makeup Lipstick in Sugar Daddy, a very light peachy nude. It came in a set, and usually is so not my thing, but I’ve been feeling it this last month. I’ve been going more bright on my cheeks this summer.

    A good red always makes me feel magnificent:. MAC Von Teese, MAC La Vie En Rouge (well, red-coral), YSL Scout’s Red, UD Mrs. Mia Wallace (discontinued 😭), Too Faced Throwback Glitter Lipstick in Too Too Hot, Ciate Glitter Storm in Jessica Rabbit…I may have a wee problem with red lipsticks. 💄😆

    I can’t wear colors like Velvet Teddy, they do not suit my coloring, but I love All Fired Up. Coraly reds are kind of my go-to – Benefit Love Tint is a good sheer option, MAC Lady Danger, there was a discontinued Maybelline one I loved called Craving Coral I think.

    Like most of us, I rotate among several lipsticks depending on what I’m wearing. I was wearing red today, so I wore Signature Club Lip Color True Berry. It’s red, but doesn’t scream red, which I like.

    All Fired Up is your color Karen!! The lipstick that I wore today, is a bew discovery. I picked it up at TJ Maxx, of all places. LOL!! It is Lancome l’Absolu Tone Up Balm in Pink Marble. I usually only wear MAC lippies, but I’m loving this one from Lancome. I’ve been wearing it so much the past few weeks. It is kind of between a lipstick and a lip balm, but it has a lot of color payoff. It’s a candy pink color with streaks of darker pink going through it. I love it!!

    Happy lipstick day! Even though I’m still working from home, today I put on Executive Realness from Pat McGrath Labs. They describe it as “mulberry pink” I really like it! Mattes are not my favorite, but I am enjoying the few PMG colors I got.

    I love these colors on you, Karen! My two favorite lipsticks–MAC High Tea and Urban Decay Ex Girlfriend–were discontinued, so I’ve been on the hunt for replacements. Sigh.

    Today, I wore the Fenty Gloss Bomb (the original shade). I’ve been finding myself reaching for glosses a lot lately, and that one might be my favorite.

    Today I’m wearing the long-discontinued UD 100 Degrees. I don’t know if I can pinpoint any specific shades that make me feel magnificent, but I do generally prefer reds and pinks. I’m also slowly amassing Revlon Ultra HD lip products, including some shades of the discontinued lip glosses and gel lipsticks, which were basically just sitting around the Walgreens warehouse until I ordered them!

    My Revlon Ultra HD Lip Collection
    Glosses-Carnelian, Fire Opal, Strawberry Topaz, Pink
    Gel lipsticks-Garden, Tropical, Lava
    Liquid lipsticks I have-Intensity, Flirtation, Romance, Obsession, Kisses
    Liquid lipsticks in transit-Addiction, Temptation
    Liquid lipsticks I want-Devotion, Love, Passion

    My workplace just reinstituted its mask mandate, so I’ll have to go to Amazon and get some of those plastic inserts that go inside the mask and keep it from sitting directly on your mouth. They’re better for both speech and lipstick!

    I am wearing CT Pillow Talk lip liner with one of the pixi Lip Balms on top, very muted, which is unusual for me. I am working from home though, so I went for a low maintenance option.

    Most lipstick colors don’t look good on me – and I always feel like an awkward clown. But I can always count on Black Honey. 🙂 Btw, your hair looks fab. I love how the very few grays you have look like highlights. You’re fortunate not to have patches – it makes for a more challenging transition.
