Forget everything you thought you knew about "Christmas in July." The real jolly holiday that happens in the middle of summer is National Lipstick Day. This day that beauty lovers look forward to all year is just around the corner on Sunday, July 29. While the holiday doesn't include Santa Claus coming down your chimney or baking Christmas cookies, it does mean that some major beauty brands are offering promotions, discounts, and even freebies on arguably one of the most important makeup products in anyone's kit: lipstick, duh.
Whether you're a 50 shades of nude kinda girl or you're all about that bold red lip, some of your favorite brands have incredible sales in honor of the holiday, meaning you'll be able to score your favorite colors and styles for cheap (or, well, cheaper). But before you just dive in head first, you have to go in prepared. Why celebrate this holiday by accidentally buying a full-price lipstick because you weren't aware of a sale? Read on to find out what deals you're going to want to take advantage of come July 29, so you can expand your lipstick collection and play up your pout.
Believe it or not, for this year's celebration of National Lipstick Day, MAC will offer a free full-size lipstick (an $18.50 value) in their stores on July 29. Yes, they mean free: No purchase is necessary. You'll just want to make sure to get to your nearest MAC store or counter early, as supplies are limited and are expected to run out fast, (Duh, because who wouldn't want a free MAC lippie?)
The freebies are available in nine different shades: Aloof, Delish, Dare You, Moxie, Florabundi, Epic, Mixed Media, Chintz, and Tanarama. BUT, if standing in line isn't your thing, MAC is also offering free lipstick in the same shades with online orders of $25 or more. This offer is also only available while supplies last and includes free shipping. So hop on it, folks!
