9 National Lipstick Day Sales That Are Actually Worth Shopping

Get in loser, we're going (online) shopping

by Tembe Denton-Hurst

In case you missed it, or didn't read the above—today is National Lipstick Day, a day to share your favorite lip product, stock up on a few shades, or something in between.

Is it the best day ever or a capitalist scheme designed to get lipstick lovers (and lip gloss lovers, we don't discriminate) everywhere to swipe their cards? Probably a little bit of both, but any excuse to buy a shade similar to one I already own is reason enough for me.

See the best deals of the day ahead.

BITE Beauty

If you've been holding out on getting on the Bite Beauty wave, consider today the perfect opportunity to see what the hype is about. The brand is offering up to 40 percent off of select shades—including Persimmon, a bright-orange that will likely cause people to stop you on the street for details.
