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.
Still looking for some last minute gifts for your daughter, sister or girlfriend? Here are some great makeup and beauty products that any girl (or maybe even guy) will appreciate. Best of all, these beauty finds are all under $10.
This cute nail polish duo is from The New Black and comes in festive holiday colors;
gold, silver, red and black. One shade is a glitter and the other is a corresponding matte shade, $10 at sephora.com.
This holiday gift set is a great introduction to The Body Shop line:
It includes a shower gel, body butter and a shower puff in Vanilla Bliss. It actually smells a lot like white chocolate and the body butter is SUPER moisturizing. They also have this in a few different scents and right now it is on sale for $5!
Nip+Fab is a new UK brand that recently hit the shelves at ULTA:
The Nip+Fab No Needle Fix is an instant line filler that you throw in your purse for a little midday perk up. It works by hydrating and plumping skin so lines appear smoother. Only $10 exclusively at ULTA stores.
One of the most searched posts on my blog is the nail polish organizer:

This is my absolute favorite lip salve/balm. It adds a tinge of color and can used all over the body. Great for scrapes, hangnails, even baby’s behind. It also lasts forever! $6 at Sephora, ULTA and Skins 6|2 in the Cosmopolitan.
Las Vegas now has a Container Store! I was invited to the Blogger Sneak Peek at the new store and got the 411 on all their great products. It has everything you need to organize any room of your home. I was quite impressed with all the items made just for organizing cosmetics. The clear acrylic organizers for nail polish, lipstick and makeup brushes look so great you can keep them on top of the counter. They are also reasonably priced around $6 each.

I did not see these when I was in the store – but what a great idea! If you have those days when you can’t wear your contacts, these makeup glasses are just the thing!
