Celebrate National Lipstick Day 2015 With TME Picks

Today, July 29 is National Lipstick Day. And in the words of Elizabeth Taylor, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” Okay, well you may not want to pour yourself a drink just yet, but you may want to pucker up that pretty pout and put on some lipstick. After all, we know that lipstick is one of the easiest ways to change up our look or change up a sour mood -- TME’s editor is infamously known for whipping out a tube and shoving it at anyone who isn’t in the greatest spirits … as usual we digress.

In celebration of National Lipstick Day 2015 Team TME has picked a few of our favorite lipstick brands and shades to share with our readers, along with a few fun lipstick facts. Did you know that lipstick has been around for about 5,000 years? Ancient Sumerian men and women crushed gems mixed with tar and decorated their lips. In the US 900 million tubes of lipstick are sold each year and 80 percent of women state that they wouldn’t walk out the front door sans lipstick! Well, there you have it. Now, peruse our picks, hopefully find one that you love and Happy National Lipstick Day!

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick ($30) - Extremely matte yet comfortable, long lasting, with pure high fidelity deep color pay-off.  Available in four limited edition shades – Yaz red, noble pink, sunshine orange and daring violet.

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Telluride Collection Fall 2015

With inspiration from one of Bobbi Brown’s favorite haunts – Telluride, Colorado – the newest collection from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics focuses on a warm glow for the face. Each product in the Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection Fall 2015 is designed to deliver an elegant glow reminiscent of the late afternoon sun in Telluride.

Team TME fell in love with the brand’s latest collection because of its versatile color palette, which features colors that can be worn now for Summer 2015, as well as Fall 2015. With “sunset” hues of tawny nude, rose gold, and pink bronze; this collection is perfect for summer and transitions beautifully into fall. Who doesn’t love a solidly hued palette that carries over seasons? So, what does the Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection Fall 2015 offer?

To start, the Limited Edition Telluride Eye Palette ($52) features seven earthy eye shadows in a variety of brown, soft blush and mauve hues, this palette is a fresh take on a neutral eye, which is a major makeup trend from Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week. The palette includes a sleek Dual-Ended Eye Shadow/Eye Liner.

  • Woodrose
  • Velvet Plum Metallic
  • Blazing Star Sparkle
  • Heather Rose Shimmer Wash
  • Antique Rose
  • Smokey Brown

Next in the Fall 2015 Collection is Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks ($29) that happens to be one of Bobbi Brown’s best sellers. No surprise there, as any cosmetic product that’s a mutli-tasker is bound to become a must-have for all of us busy women. For Fall 2015, the brand has introduced two new shades -- Telluride and Maui. We’re favoring Maui Fresh Melon for Summer 2015 with its pink coral hue and Telluride’s warm mauve is going to be a hit for Fall 2015.


  • Telluride
  • Maui
  • Fresh Melon

Moving on in the collection, we take a look at the Limited Edition Shimmer Brick ($46) that is an all over skin pick-me-up. With hues like Sunset Pink that warm the complexion, we don’t see any washed out looks in our future. We have to mention that the ultra-fine pearl pigments are so soft on the skin and leave a silk, radiant finish. What one is left with from this Shimmer Brink is a sun-touched look without the sun damage and we are pleased that the hues work well on various complexions!

Completing the Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection Fall 2015 is Sheer Lip Color ($27) that features two new shades -- Sunset Pink and Natural Pink.
