National Lipstick Day Is Coming — And MAC Is Giving Away Free Lipstick to Celebrate

Any beauty enthusiast will tell you that makeup — while an exciting and creative hobby — is undoubtedly an expensive one. With constant new releases, and endless options, there’s a lot of money to be spent in the beauty industry. Which is why we could not be more excited about news that MAC is giving away makeup for free. 

Yes… You read that right! 

As you may or may not know, July 29 happens to be National Lipstick Day — an important holiday if we’ve ever heard of one! And MAC is celebrating by giving away free lipstick — and for what it’s worth, they’re not the only ones! Keep reading to find out how to get free lipstick at MAC this weekend and learn about some other brands celebrating this oh-so-holy day. 

MAC Is Giving Away Free Lipstick — And You Don’t Have to Buy Anything

To get in on the action at MAC, pretty much all you have to do is show up. No purchase necessary! 

Before you ask what the catch is, we should warn you that there is one (though it’s minor). On National Lipstick Day, they are only giving away certain shades — more specifically, they are giving away nine colors from the Artists Favorites collection. The available shades include Aloof, Delish, Dare You, Moxie, Florabundi, Epic, Mixed Media, Chintz, and Tararama. 

We suggest you get there early, as the promotion only runs while supplies last and — as you can imagine — things tend to go quickly! If waiting in line with rabid beauty fans isn’t exactly your thing, you can also take advantage of the offer online, though they do require you make a $ 25 purchase in order to get the free shade. 

It’s worth mentioning, this isn’t the only day you can get free makeup at the cult favorite brand! The company runs their Back-to-MAC recycling program year-round, and all you have to do is bring in your used-up makeup in exchange for something new.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Is Going BOGO 

Anastasia Beverly Hills — the makeup brand founded by eyebrow wizard Anastasia Soare — has one of the best liquid lipstick formulas on the market. And this year, you’ll be able to get your hands on many different shades, as they’re doing buy one, get one free on their website

To sweeten the deal, you’ll be able to mix and match their lip products (which includes liquid lipstick, bullet lipstick, and lipgloss) so you can get your hands on every formula the brand has to offer.

Free Slurpee Day 2018 Is Coming So Prepare Your Body

With heat waves ripping across the U.S., even us self-professed lovers of summer have been finding ourselves longing for a crisp autumn day. This Wednesday, however, we’ll all have at least one reason to be glad it’s still the middle of July: 7-Eleven’s annual Free Slurpee Day returns for 2018!

July 11th (a.k.a. 7/11) is of course 7-Eleven’s golden day, and what better way to celebrate than by blessing us with complimentary, ice-cold slushies in the midst of this sweltering heat? 

“Free Slurpee day may be the most anticipated day of the year for millions of 7‑Eleven customers and new customers alike,” Raj Kapoor, 7‑Eleven’s senior vice president said in a press release. “7‑Eleven Day is a celebration, not only of our birthday, but more importantly, of our customers.” 

Unfortunately, this is not bring-your-own-cup day so the free frozen concoction only comes in a small size — but don’t be afraid to treat yourself to an upgrade. 

Unsurprisingly, Slurpee fans are anxiously awaiting the occasion.

For some of us, Free Slurpee Day is a beacon of hope in this grim existence that is 2018.

Others would even go so far as to call it a bonafide national holiday.

Meanwhile, some of us are just interested in maximizing our efficiency in pursuit of free stuff.

For the true Slurpee addicts out there, there’s even more reason to rejoice. 7-Eleven is adding some insane new flavors.

You can claim your free small Slurpee at participating 7 Eleven locations from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. While you’re at it grab a Big Bite hot dog, which will be sold for $ 1 in honor of the day. 

So get excited and prepare your bod for the sugar rush. When few things in life are truly free, we can always depend on 7-Eleven to bestow us with this yearly gift.

This Black Guy Posted A 'Guess Who's Coming Dinner Service' On Craigslist And It's Hilarious

The holidays are great and I absolutely love this time of year, but even I am sick and tired of people who ask the same old boring family questions.

What are you doing with your life? Are you seeing anyone? How’s your job going? Et cetera, et cetera. It’s even worse when you’ve got an annoyingly traditional family that’s borderline backwards.

Well if you wished there was a way to get back at them and mess with them real good this Holiday season, then you may want to take up Wesley Peterson on his “Guess who’s coming to dinner” family service.

People were cracking up at Peterson’s post.

Others think he’s worth way more than a holiday hire.

But the real question is: did anyone take Peterson up on his offer?

Here’s hoping someone did. Hell, I’m married and not a white woman from a borderline racist family and I want to take him up on his offer.

AIM Is Coming To An End And People Are Paying Tribute

If you grew up in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s, there was one thing you experienced regardless of where you were from. That was getting home from school, logging into AOL, and talking to your friends on AIM. 

AIM’s popularity plummeted as other forms of digital communication became more popular. It still exists, though not for much longer. In a recent tumblr post AOL explained that they will be ending the service on December 15th. 

Naturally, people have complicated feelings about this. On the one hand, it’s a service people haven’t really used in over a decade. On the other hand, we had a good time there. 

Farewell, AIM. We will never forget you or your A/S/L.

PSA: Christmas Joy Is Finally Coming To The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

PSA: Christmas Joy Is Finally Coming To The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

The Harry Potter universe is already a pretty magical place, which is why it made perfect sense to make a theme park based off of it: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You’ve got all sorts of Hogwarts and J.K. Rowling-inspired enchantment surrounding you at every turn.

But what if there was a way to make the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter even more magical? 

Well there totally is, and Universal Studios found a way to do it. 

Because they’re planning on decking out the park in a Christmas theme this Holiday season. I know: Hold onto your Nimbus 2000s.

From Universal:  

“The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will give guests a special opportunity to see, feel, and even taste what it’s like to celebrate the magic of Christmas in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.”

This is what the Hogwarts Castle will look like at night when you visit the Florida park in the evening.

Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley will be tricked out with all the Christmas bells and whistles like boughs of holly and lights.

But the decor isn’t the only thing at the Wizarding World that’ll be getting a facelift.

Dining menus, drinks, and shows will all get a healthy dose of Christmas cheer.

There isn’t much more news as to what Potterheads can expect on the menu, but the books and films are rife with some delicious meals that provide plenty of inspiration for the cooking staff to get creative with.

Imagine a festive feast like this?

Or what about dancing around in your very own Yule Ball?
