Here's something you can officially file under "best news of the day": MAC cosmetics is having its first ever sample sale. The company that brought you Viva Glam Lipsticks, Laguna Bronzer (which I personally swore by from eighth to 11th grade) and the world's best black eyeliner is offering 60 percent off retail prices of seasonal shades, limited-edition products, and all of their go-to fan favorites.
The sale will start on July 19th at 2pm the Metropolitan Pavillon in New York City. It will run through Friday, July 22, though there's no way to say for sure if anything will be left by then — people are going to go crazy for these discounted prices, and things are going to go fast.
What will a 60 percent discount get you? Let's do some math. Lipsticks that are normally $17 will go for $7, and $12 nail lacquers will cost you $5 — basically the same price as your morning latte.
Everything at the sale is "Final Sale," so it can't be returned (which is how sample sales almost always work), but the containers can be used in the company's "Back to MAC" promotion: If you return six empty, qualifying MAC containers to the MAC store, they'll give you a free lipgloss, lipstick, or single eyeshadow (cha ching!)
The sale is open to the public, and will accept cash and credit cards.
So, here's what you need to know.
Where Is It?
Head over to Metropolitan Pavilion at 123 W 18th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves on the 4th floor.
When Is It?
The sale will take place from Tuesday, July 19th to Friday, July 22. The hours are as follows: Tuesday, 2pm—7pm; Wednesday through Thursday, 9am—7pm; Friday, 9am—4pm.
Get ready to get glam, guys!
