Oh, hey, it’s National Lipstick Day, and yes, that’s totally a thing! It might be a silly, made up day, but nonetheless I highly approve of the occasion. I also love that so many beauty retailers are offering sweet deals on lipsticks today, so keep your eyes open on social media!
I do love lipstick and think it’s the first beauty product so many of us naturally gravitated to in our early years as beauty junkies. Lipstick is both glamorous and easily accessible, wearable by anyone and multi-functional. What other product does duty as a cream blush and color corrector?
