There’s nothing I do better than finding juicy sales and saving a shit ton of money. You may call me cheap; I call it talent. Now, when it comes to makeup and scoring a good deal, I am like, the queen. The expert. The Khaleesi. I wish I could consider this a resume-worthy skill. (I mean, I do consider it resume-worthy, it’s just that most potential employers probably wouldn’t.) You are so welcome that I am such a good friend to share my secrets with you, so consider your Tuesday made: MAC Cosmetics is hosting a huuuge sale that’s so good, that you won’t have to buy makeup for months. The MAC Goodbyes sale (which, thank the heavens doesn’t mean they’re going out of business or anything—just that these are good buys) has your favorite items for up to 40% off. Yes, this includes to-die-for lipsticks, eyeshadows, and foundations. To make your life even better, here’s everything you should buy ASAP from the MAC Goodbyes sale before they sell out.
1. MAC Cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet
Now’s the time to stock up on vampy colors you’ll want in time for fall. This reddish-brown hue is a dark plum IRL. To make it better, two other bold purple shades are discounted for a price that’s less than like, $13, too.
2. MAC Studio Quiktrik Stick
This double-ended stick can be used for highlighting, contouring, bronzing, or adding a pop of color. Basically, think of it as the Frank’s Red Hot of makeup. No, you’re right, that was lame. I’m sorry. My dad jokes aside, this stick is legit the perfect thing to keep in your bag at all times.
3. MAC Cosmetics Plushglass
Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by the size of your lips. You’re preaching to the choir, gf. To make yours look like Kylie’s, but you know, without the fillers, you’ll def want to grab this gloss that plumps, hydrates, and provides a luscious baby pink glow all at the same time. And during the MAC Goodbyes sale, this shit will cost you almost the same as drugstore lip products.
4. MAC Cosmetics EYE SHADOW X 4: PATRICKSTARRR
An eyeshadow palette is one thing, but a warm, neutral palette you know you’ll actually get more than one use out of is another. MAC’s collab with makeup artist and beauty vlogger Patrick Starr features four colors you can mix and match that stay on for hours without ever creasing.
5. MAC Cosmetics Modern Twist Kajal Kit
Tbh, I never used a lip liner until my very first Kylie lip kit, and ever since, I’ve realized what my beauty routine was missing. I wish that didn’t sound so corny, but it’s true. I always thought lip liners were stuck in the 80s, but I was so wrong, and I am so glad I was shown the light. The extra 10-second step makes your lips look so much better. MAC’s lip liners not only give you that extra defined pout you’re looking for, but they also serve as eye liners or even brow fillers if you like, want to do that.
