It’s National Lipstick Day! (Got Your Shade Picked Out?)

In celebration of National Lipstick Day, we’ve gathered together some of the shades that have made us feel strong, powerful, and that still make us feel nostalgic every now and again. Remember the lipstick you wore on your wedding day? The one you brought with you on that magical trip abroad? The “new job” lipstick, “hot date” lipstick, or “lucky” lipstick? We’re willing to bet there’s a special shade hidden (or not hidden) somewhere in your makeup bag, but if not, we’ve got some powerful suggestions to win you over, and with nearly every shade imaginable on trend right now, there couldn’t be a better time.

Flip through the gallery, find a shade that’s YOU, and start making memories!
