Celebrate National Lipstick Day 2017 With TME Picks


Saturday, 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 2017, 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!


Mehron's L.I.P Cream ($7.95) combines a luscious hydrating lip formulation with intense artist inspired pigmentation. The effect leaves lips looking luxurious, creamy and conditioned with dramatic color that lasts all day and night.



jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick ($25) vivid pigments blend with nourishing natural oils and super fruit extracts for petal soft lips that feel, look and taste amazing. The 24 versatile shades dress the lips with high-impact color and sumptuous depth. The continuously creamy, rich and smooth formula glides on easily for long-lasting hold.



INGLOT Diamond Lip Tint ($18) is a super long-lasting liquid lipstick with a strong metallic gleam. Thanks to its delicate argan oil infused formula, it keeps lips conditioned and moisturized while providing extreme shine and a smooth finish. Diamond Lip Tint provides ultimate coverage and a fuller look to the lips.



Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick in Lily ($29) - For that peachy keen look we crave this summer, try this creamy lip color with a lush, velvety texture that delivers long-lasting hydration – providing the coverage of a lipstick with the nourishing properties of a lip balm. Did we mention it's made with watermelon and apple extracts? Yum!



LORAC Alter Ego Hydrating Lip Stain ($19) - This sexy and playful stain coat your lips in highly- pigmented color and hydrates with nourishing Jojoba Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Shea Butter and Mango Seed Butter for all day pigment, shine and hydration.



Pacifica Devocean Natural Lipstick ($10) - A full color, 100% vegan, hydrating natural lipstick that lasts with intensity, like the deepest love. Creamy hydration, highly pigmented, and chocked full of anti-aging benefits that nourish and love your lips.



Serge Lutens Fàrd a Lèvres Lipstick ($75) - The unique formula features argan oil to preserve moisture and reflect light, giving the lips a glossy finish while concealing fine lines. Bright colors create a fresh springtime look. (L to R - N°14 -Notre-Dame du Rose and N°15 360 Volts).

Well, there you have it. Now that you’ve perused our picks, and hopefully you’ve find one that you love, you can take a “lipstick run” to your favorite cosmetics counter or ULTA or Sephora … you can even find a few of our suggestions at your local drugstore! 

~xo Happy National Lipstick Day!

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.
