MAC Cosmetics has just gone and made our day by dropping its iconic lipstick range from a $36 price point to $30. The move is a permanent one, and spans across all lipstick franchises including Retro Matte, Amplified, Powder Kiss, and Cremesheen. It’s a bold and exciting statement, given MAC lipsticks are the best-selling in Australia (with one unit being sold every minute nationally). As far as shades go, brick red Ruby Woo is iconic, as is the deep, mauve-nude colour Whirl (made ultra popular by a pre-lip kit Kylie Jenner). The creamy Honey Love is also a favourite, along with Velvet Teddy (another Kylie Jenner lip alumni), Lady Danger, and Soar. For every six bullets you finish, you can even bring back the empty packaging in exchange for a freebie – sustainable and economical.

If you’re looking to top up not only your lipsticks but the rest of the makeup kit, MAC has also dropped the price of its eyeshadow singles to $29 (from $33), and single wand mascaras to $39 (from $42). The changes are in effect from now, so head in store or online to nab the best-selling shades before the rest of the world beats you to it.
