give some lip
our editors pick their faves for national lipstick day.
Lipsticks are like shoes, jeans, or T-shirts: it's impossible to have too many. And that's a good thing! Especially because the NYLON office is overflowing with self-described lipstick addicts, and there's no better time than National Lipstick Day (duh, which is today!) to pick everyone's brains about which shades are currently in heavy rotation.
Check out our office-wide favorites in the gallery, and then add your own recs in the comments... after all, beauty inspiration is always better when it's mutual.
"I personally love MAC lipsticks in general for a few reasons: they smell like vanilla, they go on creamy, and they stay on for a pretty good amount of time. Rebel is my favorite hue because it's dark enough to rock with an all-black outfit and not look like a vampire. And, it comes with enough purple and red to still feel feminine yet edgy. Runners Up include Lime Crime's Countessa Fluorescent and Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids in Neon Red."
"The perfect shade of coral for year-round Palm Beach granny vibes."
"The color takes me back to my junior high locker mirror only with this I never have to reapply. Forever young and everlasting. Thanks, Drew."
"I actually hate lipstick, I don't like the way it feels! So my go to is the lip crayons, they are thinner and easier to put on/take off!"
"You know how after eating a cherry popsicle your lips have that perfect crimson stain? This gives you that."
"I went through an orange lips phase, but now I'm opting for something a bit more subdued-- this coral shade from Chanel is shimmery, subtle, and still gives a hint of tangerine."
"The color works perfectly for day and night and feels like almost you aren't wearing any lipstick at all but in reality your lips look fuller and still natural."
"Best nude color that complements my skin tone and makes my lips softer than a lip balm."
"Usually you have to sacrifice color for a long-lasting, hydrating lipstick, or vice versa. But luckily this shade comes packed with Argan oil, antioxidant Litchi Chinesis Fruit Extract, and Berry Flux Vita, so your lips look fly and stay hydrated."
"I have an embarrassing amount of lipsticks these days, but this dusty rose shade is the one I keep coming back to...mostly because it goes on smooth, is ultra-moisturizing, and looks just as good with a bare face as it does when you're all made up."
