15+ Ways to Celebrate National Lipstick Day

National Lipstick Day

Indulge your inner beauty nerd with a lipstick wardrobe that covers all your colour bases.

With a longstanding history, lipstick is often seen as a beacon of femininity, power and allure. We’re currently in the midst of an ever-changing beauty landscape that is seeing a return to men wearing rouge on their pout (George Washington and men of the Roman Empire are said to have adorned their lips with paint). Has this little bullet of colour ever been more in demand?

And every year sees new trends in colour, texture and staying power. But one thing that never changes is lipstick’s ability to inspire confidence, whether you’re a fan of light-as-a-whisper hues or deep saturated shades.

Cheers to celebrating #NationalLipstickDay!
