Watching The Doctors the other day I learned a little something new that I’d never heard of in all my years of beauty reporting. Dr. Travis Stork shared that “nature knows best” and the most flattering shade of lipstick for you is one that matches your nipple color. Now, that’s not something you hear every day!
Since nipples come in light and dark shades of pink, red and brown, here are 7 pretty lipsticks that just might match what you’ve got going on:
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Belle De Jour ($27) is a light nude beige jumbo-sized lip pencil that delivers an impactful lipstick look with the application ease of a pencil. You’ll like the tapered end to line, define and fill in your lip, and you’ll love that it’s formulated with vitamin E and other emollient ingredients so it has a super creamy, non-drying formula.
Ilia Lipstick Crayon in Call Me ($24), a sweet and innocent true pink shade, was actually inspired by the cult classic moviePretty In Pink. It’s easy to line and fill in your lips, plus it’s super-hydrating, chock full of organic and natural ingredients like coconut oil and sunflower seed oil, and it gives you a gorgeous semi-matte finish. Available in six buildable colors.
Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop Lipstick in Pow ($28), described as a peony pink, is highly pigmented so it lasts for hours on end. It’s also formulated with honey, silica and nutrient-rich ingredients for a smooth, comfortable, transfer- resistant application. Be forewarned that the chrome design of the lipstick case is so friggin’ cool that it will make you proud to whip it out whenever and wherever you want to apply it.
Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Party Pink ($20) is a brighter shade of intense matte pigment in a liquid formula that dries down to a smear-resistant finish and stays put for hours. You will find it in a range of nudes, corals, pinks, berry-shades and browns.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in Rouge in Danger ($37), a gorgeous shade of strawberry red, delivers medium coverage in a high-shine finish. It’s formulated with antioxidants to minimize the look of fine lines, candelilla resin to help lock in moisture, mineral pigments for a more vibrant color payoff, and hyaluronic acid spheres soften and hydrate, you’ll experience all-day comfort when wearing. You’ll also find the delicious mango scent makes it seem good enough to eat.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Cremini ($26), the perfect milk chocolate hue, blends 12 edible oils with triple milled pigments for a super smooth application and extra saturated color payoff and if you’re wondering where the yummy citrus flavor comes from, it’s actually from the fresh pressed fruit in the formula.
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Cathedral ($21) colors your lips a beautiful rosy brown shade. This antioxidant-infused lipstick goes on in one swipe, lasts a long time and leaves lips soft and supple, plus you’ll absolutely die for the light Crème Brûlée scent for a touch of sweetness every time you apply it.
