No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. The beauty gods just answered every lipstick lover's prayer now that MAC Cosmetics announced its first-ever sample sale (don't worry—these products haven't been used). In case you weren't aware, MAC is one of the best beauty supply stores in NYC, and famous beauty gurus worship the brand's lip products.
Tell your boss you'll be taking an extended lunch break on Tuesday 19, because you can get your (probably) well-manicured hands on eye, cheek, nail and face makeup (and did we mention LIPSTICK?) marked 60 percent off. The beauty hunt is going down at Metropolitan Pavilion for three days, but we recommend getting there well before the sale begins. This might just be one of the most exciting samples sales we've seen this summer.
Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 W 18th St, fourth floor (maccosmetics.com). Tue 19 3–7pm, July 20, 21 9am–7pm.
