This Lupita Nyong’o-Approved Lipstick Is On Sale For Just One Day

Sephora's National Lipstick Day sale features a formula worn by Lupita Nyong'o.

You might not have known when you woke up this morning that it was a holiday, but the beauty world's celebration is in full swing. Today is National Lipstick Day — and similar to a sequined dress for New Year's Eve, it wouldn't be complete without Sephora's National Lipstick Day sale. You better move fast, though: The one-day-only sale started at 12:01 a.m. PT on July 29 and will only run until 11:59 p.m. this evening.

That said, it does cover select lip products on Sephora.com, as well as in Sephora stores and Sephora inside JCPenney — if you do feel like venturing out into the world. But for those that'd rather online shop, keep on scrolling. There are 15 lip products in total marked down for Sephora's sale, and The Zoe Report narrowed our list of must-haves down to only six.

Naturally, this includes the Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick, a Lupita Nyong’o-approved lipstick formula. According to Vogue (and makeup artist Nick Barose), the actor and author wore the long-wearing lipstick while promoting her book Sulwe last fall, finished with a glossy top coat of L’Absolu Gloss. Whether you go for the sheeny finish or not, picking up the lipstick during Sephora's sale is a smart move — since the regularly $32 formula is marked down to a wallet-friendly $16.


And that's just one of the many lipsticks to add to your cart during the one-day event. Below, the six lipstick shades from Sephora's National Lipstick Day sale to snap up while you can.
