People are creating custom lipstick shades with #MACMixMash and the results are insane


It’s the most wonderful day of the year! Today is #NationalLipstickDay and we’re celebrating by bringing you the best of the best when it comes to our favourite lipstick shades, tips, tricks and trends.

This spring, M.A.C Cosmetics challenged their beauty loyalists to invent their own lipstick shade (the dream, non?), and everyone and their mother can get in on the action.

Here’s how: choose from your favourite M.A.C lipsticks (Ruby Woo, Diva, and Myth come to mind), apply them all and blend! Then share the post on social media using #MACMixMash. Your unique colour concoction might be reposted by the brand, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that some of the best submissions might even be recreated by M.A.C. We can only dream. Are you up for the challenge?

From mermaid lips to out-of-this-world multichromatic hues, flip through this gallery to see 20 of the best #MACMixMash submissions and go to to start planning your perfect combo.
