Stores are closed but you can still get a free lipstick.
For years MAC cosmetics has been the place to be on National Lipstick Day. All you had to do was show up (before they ran out) and get a free lipstick. But with MAC stores still closed, you won’t have that option. They are going to make it up to you by offering lipstick themed deals and giveaways all through the month of August.
Unfortunately, because it would be cost-prohibitive to mail everyone a free lipstick, you’ll have to buy something. Now through Jul.29, 2020, spend $30 or more and you’ll get your choice of Amplified Lipstick in Dubonnet, Matte Lipstick in Marrakesh or Lady Danger. No offer code necessary.
Sephora and ULTA Beauty usually have sales for National Lipstick Day along with many other brands. So set up a reminder for the 29th and check all of your favorite beauty sites for deals.
Everything on the sonic beauty device’s site is 50 percent off.
After more than 15 years, Clarisonic is closing down for good. Acquired by L’Oreal in 2011, the company has decided to stop selling the high-end facial device across all retail channels, including on the direct-to-consumer website. The last day you can shop is Sept. 30, 2020.
Everything on the site is 50 percent off from devices to brush heads. If you already have a device stock up on brush heads starting at $13.50 each. Devices start at $49.50. The devices last forever (I have had two for over 5 years) and you can find aftermarket brushes to fit. Shipping free and you get a free gift with any purchase over $30.
If the brush head you want is sold out, try looking at other beauty and department stores. Many of the retailers are also lowering prices to clear stock of Clarisonic items.
The health food grocer is offering two beauty gift bags and discounts on skincare and beauty brands.

You now have a new place to get beauty deals on the net.
Marshalls stores have long been one of my go-to’s for things like sheet masks, shower gels and beauty tools. This week the discount retailer launched a full online shopping site. They had been hinting at it for some time and now it’s finally here. You can now shop for all your favorite Marshalls clothing, shoes, home goods and beauty deals without leaving the house.
Skincare brands found on the site include Dr. Jart, Strivectin, Clarins, SK II and Perricone. Makeup goodies included a MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Powder set for $25 and a Gucci High Shine Lipstick for $19.99 (only buy lipstick online when it’s cool out!). Another great find is the ergonomically designed star shaped bottle of Angel by Thierry Mugler for $49.99.
The inventory is a little slim but I suspect the closer we get to Christmas the bigger it will grow. Shop online now at marshalls.com.
