Close the banks, let the flags fly, exfoliate those lips: It’s National Lipstick Day!
OK, fine, it may not be a national holiday, but gosh dang it, it’s time to celebrate like it is. You’re commemorating the beauty product that can change the entire vibe of a look with just a slight swap in texture, finish or color. You’re honoring a must-have item for its ability to bring a whole look together. You’re happy, because at the very least, you now have an excuse to shop. Just like Fourth of July or Black Friday sales, beauty brands and retailers are offering major steals today. On what other holiday can you get a Mac Cosmetics full-size lipstick for free? Scoop up a sold-out, extremely coveted lipstick named after Naomi Campbell? Or get Kat Von D Beauty Studded Kiss Lipsticks for only $15 (originally $21)?
Before we share discount deal details, let’s play a game to test not only your celebrity lipstick knowledge, but also prove the right shade can make the most dramatic impact. We changed celebrity lip colors to see if you can tell which shade worked best in real life. What would Taraji P. Henson look like at the 2017 VMA Movie and TV Awards with the same sequined dress but a different color lipstick? [Insert alternate universe here.]
Were you surprised by their color choice?
Happy National Lipstick Day!
