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!
