If you hadn’t heard, July 29 is National Lipstick Day, a fun faux-holiday that’s best celebrated by swiping on your favorite lipstick color. It’s also a day for beauty lovers to score some amazing deals on lipsticks, including a totally free full-size lipstick from MAC.

In honor of the day, MAC will be giving away full-size tubes of eight different shades, including their pinky-orange CB96 lipstick, for free. All you have to do is make a $25 purchase online or at MAC locations to score one. Normally, this lipstick costs over $18, so this is an incredible deal. However, you’ll have to act fast to score this freebie because the offer is only available from July 27-29 while supplies last.

Not a fan of the CB96’s frosted coral hue? The freebie lipsticks available for this offer range in color from tan and pinks to reds and even a deep wine color. MAC says the website will release the names of the other available shades at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday, July 27.

If you spend $50 for National Lipstick Day, you’ll also receive a free MAC lipstick canister to store your lipsticks. Plus, MAC stores will also be offering complimentary lipstick demos in store that allow you to try on any shade you’d like! To find the nearest MAC location near you, visit the MAC website and enter your zip code.

Can’t make it to a MAC store for National Lipstick Day? You’re not out of luck. You can also snag a free MAC lipstick through the company’s recycling program, Back to Mac, that’s available all year long. All you have to do is bring in any six empty MAC makeup containers that you’ve used up, and MAC will reward you with a free lipstick worth up to $17 for recycling the empty containers.
