What kind of makeup artist are you if you don't celebrate International Lipstick Day? Thanks to SM, we all can celebrate this day at the annual SM Lipstick Festival.

This year, the SM Lipstick Fest had almost all the beauty brands under their roof offer up to 50% off regular prices. Some of the participating brands were crowd favorites such as BYS, Sleek Makeup, L’Oreal, Maybelline, Revlon, MaxFactor, OFRA Cosmetics, Happy Skin, Catrice, Nichido and many more.

I arrived at 11 in the morning to make sure I can score the best deals and still have my favorite lipstick shades to hoard. And OMG, so many people were already at the SM Beauty Section in SM Makati! When I asked one of them how they knew of this, she answered "We learned about it online. My friends and I really put it in our schedule to go early. Sulit, ang daming discounts!

Special privileges were given to friends from media and the blogging community. A beauty passport was handed to us to to participate in the different booths and fun games set up by participating brands. I only had an hour to try some of them out and the prizes I won made the trip worthwhile. 

The SM Beauty Fest is held all-month long this August and extended up to September 28, 2016 in all SM Department Stores Nationwide. Brave the rain to score huge deals on these lip products that are sure to brighten up any gloomy day!
