What, like you didn't know that was a thing?

In case you were planning on celebrating something ELSE on July 29, we’re not sure what you were thinking. It is National Lipstick Day, and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s not like we need an excuse to pucker up our pouts (gross alliteration), but we at Jet love us some good beauty tips and tricks. And coming from a girl who literally just spent an inordinate amount of money pre-ordering Pat McGrath’s upcoming MatteTrance line (I split it with a fellow lipstick junkie), this shoot was everything. Let us know in the comments what you’re wearing on this glorious, totally real and not-at-all fake holiday!

Chapstick, all day.

What does this color say about your personality?

I’m sassy and up for anything!

 How did you feel about this lipstick?

It’s more of a lip gloss, but it goes on easy and pops!

If I could make a lipstick, it would taste like Wild Berry Skittles, cause duh.

What lipstick are you wearing?

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color, Orange Obsession

What’s your usual lipcare routine? 

All my friends will tell you that I am a lip balm addict. ADDICT. I get really nervous if this specific balm isn’t at arm’s distance. For color, I alway put something bright and bold on in the morning (like a red or dark plum. By noon, it’s completely gone and I’m too lazy to reapply.

What does this color say about your personality?

It says that I’m wearing nothing interesting on my body (I wear a lot of black), so it’s that pop of color to pull me together and help me not look like a mess.

How did you feel about this lipstick?

I usually don’t love liquid lipstick, but this was really comfortable and easy to apply.

If you could invent a lipstick, what would it look like/smell like/taste like?

It would be a really dark berry color and matte but easy to apply and comfortable. It would smell like My Little Pony and taste like Junior Mints.

What lipstick are you wearing?

What’s your usual lipcare routine?

I use liquid matte.

What does this color say about your personality?

It’s called Delighted and that’s how I feel when I wear this lipstick!

How did you feel about this lipstick?

Tingly! My lips feel tingly! It’s a fun color, like a princess pink. Something I would wear when I was little.

If you could invent a lipstick, what would it look like/smell like/taste like?                  

I like nudes and natural colors, especially darker browns. So it would be within that group of shades, and it would be named and smell like Cinnabuns.

I was feeling bold today!

How did you feel about this lipstick?

I usually lean towards neutrals, so this was a nice new bright color! It’s great for summer night out. I love the matte look and feel.

A moisturizing dark neutral color that smells and tastes like chocolate! Yum.

I liked it! It felt moisturizing and I don’t think it will dry out.

It would taste like a hot fudge sundae, and it would be a vibrant, bright red.

 

Ben, Manager of Display Marketing

What’s your usual lipcare routine?

I use EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm for the day and Georgio Armini Lip Maestro at night.

Be bold, high impact, always dress for the back of the room. Like when you walk in the room, everyone in the back will notice.

How did you feel about this lipstick?

 Waxy, I do think it’s an accessible brand.  Great value.

If you could invent a lipstick, what would it look like/smell like/taste like?

It would be a liquid metallic chrome lipstick. It would taste like whiskey.

What’s your usual lipcare routine?

When I’m not wearing lipstick, I usually wear Aquaphor during the day.

What does this color say about your personality?

The pink says that I like to be outgoing during the daytime and the nighttime! Spunky!

How did you feel about this lipstick?

It’s full coverage, moisturizing, isn’t a drying lipstick and cakes on.

If you could invent a lipstick, what would it look like/smell like/taste like?

It would be in a rose gold casing, the color would be a rainbow gradient in the bullet so you had lots of options, and it would taste like coffee.

 

Beth, Category Manager

That I am sweet and sassy.

It went on very smoothy and the texture is nice.

Lipstick Queen Lipstick, Frog Prince (it’s a cult fave for a reason)

What’s your usual lipcare routine?

Burt’s Bees, and a gloss.

What does this color say about your personality?

I’m definitely a pink girl, so it’s subtle POP. The fact that it starts green and turns to pink, you don’t really know what you’re in for.

How did you feel about this lipstick?

I really liked it! I usually only go for brands that I’ve heard of, so I like that this was something different, and a pleasant surprise.

If you could invent a lipstick, what would it look like/smell like/taste like?

Ooohh. It would smell like coconut pineapple, it would taste minty, and it would be pink!
