National Lipstick Day 2022, an ode to one of our favorite beauty products of all time, has officially kicked off. As of today, July 29, a slew of brands are hosting big sales in honor of this beauty-centric holiday, so you can get in on the fun and strut your stuff (even if mostly on Zoom) with a new lipstick — or gloss, or even a brand new balm. Be sure to make some room on your vanity, because we have a feeling your lip collection is about to double.
Brands like MAC, Colourpop, and Lancôme are putting some of their best lip-focused items and sets on sale for the occasion, so all you have to do is find the shade(s) that speak to you the most. After all, it’s a special moment when you finally find the perfect red, pink, nude, or whatever color makes you feel totally powerful and in control.
Lucky for you, most promotions don’t require a promo code and end at 11:59 p.m. on July 29, but a few sales even extend past National Lipstick Day. Either way, consider this your guide to all of the best lipstick deals this year — with its vaccinations and reversal of mask mandates in tow — is offering.
The Deal: The Anniversary Sale might be in full swing, but the discounts keep flowing. Celebrate National Lipstick Day with up to 30 percent off selected lip brands, including Bobbi Brown’s ultra-lightweight Crushed Lipsticks and CTZN Cosmetics’ matte Code Red Lipsticks.
The Deal: The all-encompassing beauty retailer is going big with an entire week of deals between July 24 and 30 with a slew of buy one, get one 50 percent off on drugstore favorites and 40 percent off select products from brands like Kylie Cosmetics, Too Faced, and Smashbox.
Don’t forget to grab a tube of the glossy, weightless Kylie Cosmetics Lip Shine Lacquer during this sale. It comes in four different shades that leave behind a veil of opaque color (so no need for lipstick underneath) and high shine. Classic lipstick bullet fans will love Too Faced’s Lady Bold Cream Lipstick, a satin-finish lipstick that comes in 12 colors, including the true-mauve Trailblazer seen above.
The Deal: Sephora is marking down a ton of lippies (that are leaving us salivating, tbh) by 50 percent. For one day only, brands like Caliray and Armani Beauty will be offering some of their star products — Glazed and Infused Lip Gloss and Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick — at a fraction of the price, so you can fully revamp your lip collection and rock some new shades.
The Deal: Is it really National Lipstick Day if MAC doesn’t have an insane sale on its lip products? Of course not. This year, the beloved makeup brand will have a buy one, get one free sale on all lipstick bullets, regardless of their finishes, from now through July 31. You can restock your matte collection with one of the seven Retro Matte Lipstick shades (like the ever-iconic, cool-toned red Ruby Woo) while replenishing your supply of satin-finish Cremesheen Lipsticks, which come in nine different shades to mix and match.
