It’s National Lipstick Day (7/29)! Did you know that the origin of lipstick dates back centuries ago?!
According to Lipstickhistory.com, Mesopotamian women grinded out precious gems and used their dust to decorate their lips with glimmer and riches. Women from Indus Valley Civilization used lipstick regularly, but it was Egypt where manufacture of lipstick received many advancements.
Today, lipstick shades are everywhere: blues, purples, greens, pinks, reds and even yellow!
We’re celebrating this makeup holiday with some great deals from Kat Von D, M.A.C., etc.
There’s no catch, M.A.C is really giving away free lipstick! Visit any M·A·C store or retailer near you in the U.S. Get there early on 7/29 for a FREE full sized Lipstick, while supplies last! #MACLipsLipsLips
