National Lipstick Day 07.29.18


Events, Sales, Shopping / Saturday, July 28th, 2018

As Coco Chanel once said, “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” Well, if you’re sad, happy, tired, excited, or anywhere in between… how about some FREE lipstick? To celebrate tomorrow’s National Lipstick Day, several beauty brands and retailers are offering promotional sales on this iconic makeup bag mainstay.

Did you know that Huda Kattan actually owns this holiday? She purchased the rights to National Lipstick Day in  2016 as a way to promote the launch of Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte Lipsticks. By tradition, Huda Beauty will be releasing their Demi Mattes this year.

Other notable beauty brands are also offering deals on their lip products:

However, another beauty power house has taken over the holiday by giving away FREE lipstick! Come to any MAC store or counter to receive a complimentary full-size lipstick (retail value: $18.50). This year, shoppers can select from 9 shades: Aloof, Chintz, Dare You, Delish, Epic, Florabundi, Moxie, Mixed Media, and Tanarama.  Temptalia is one of my favorite sites for makeup swatches, and she recently posted pictures of eight of the shades to compare. Keep in mind that the selection may vary by store and the promotion runs until supplies last. Last year, my local Macy’s allowed each person to select their shade while my local Nordstrom handed them out randomly out of a bag. You really just have to try your luck, but who can complain about free lippies?!

Check out my pictures and stories on my instagram @whitecoat2whitedress tomorrow as I brave the crowds at MAC. In the meantime, what lippies would you be interested in grabbing?
