National Lipstick Day - When Did You Start Wearing Lipstick?

I can't believe they made a holiday just for me. Today is National Lipstick Day! Lipstick is hands down my favorite cosmetic to wear. You won't see me without it. Ever. If you do, something is wrong guys.





My love affair with lipstick began when I was a young teenager in the 80's. My mom wouldn't let me wear it until about the 8th grade. And when she did, it was on. Literally. I loved it!

Do you remember Wet & Wild 509 & 521? Yeah, those were my favorites. A deep red and iridescent fuschia. To this very day, I still wear some version of those colors. No more Wet & Wild though. I've since upped my game.


Nowadays, you can find lipsticks in so many different hues. No more basic red or pink. They even have blue and black which I don't think I'll ever wear. Yesterday, I saw a girl with dark green lipstick at Target. It looked good on her, but I won't be going that far.




But if it's bold and bright, I'll rock it!







Do you wear lipstick? When did your love affair begin?

  1. I remember Wet n' wild! It is so different now - it is good stuff! Back then it was impossible to get on, and next to impossible to remove. I think I seriously started wearing it in college when the black lip line was in. Oh the horror!

  2. I wore lipstick for about 2 years,... I've been a gloss girl for most of my life. I can never find the perfect lipstick.

  3. I have trouble finding the right lipstick too and I think bright shades of lipstick make me look old.

  4. I wear lipstick sometimes. Since my lips are naturally colored I usually don't wear it. I started wearing lipstick in my teens too.

    You always wear the best colors Stacie! I'm all about pinks and red too, not those wild colors.

  5. I was late to the lipstick and makeup game! I didn't wear lipstick until I was 25! And now, I rarely wear it.

  6. I didn't really start wearing lipstick until I was well in my twenties. Some of my favorite colors are nudes and plums.

  7. Girl! 521!!!! That was my color. Lipstick now breaks my lips out in blisters so I'm on the hunt for all natural companies.

  8. I still love Wet and Wild and Milani cosmetics. They have definitely kept up with the trends and are so affordable! #ProductReviewParty

  10. Last year was the first time I'd ever heard of it. When I started out wearing lipstick I work Revlon's Toast of New York. It was a brownish color and one my older sister wore.

    These days MAC Ruby Woo is my favorite.

  11. I used to sneak and wear my moms lipstick back in the day. But now I feel so out of place and weird when i wear lipstick. I am more of a neutral gloss kind of girl but I have been trying to dabble in lipstick lately.

  12. oh my goodness, who doesn't love Wet n Wild - that was the first lipstick I could afford 2/$1 back in the day. Now I only use Avon and love all the varieties and colors they are now selling.

  13. I rarely wear lipstick because my lips turn over so often. I like matte glosses more, but there are some great butter lipsticks out now.

  14. I'm a makeup artist, if anything I wear lipstick daily even if I don't have a full face of makeup. I love a red lip, or even a bright pink, orange or purple.

  15. My mother let me start wearing makeup when I was 14, but I NEVER really wore it! In my 20s I wore it more, but now I've just stopped. But I'm looking to up my make up game this year!

  16. I wear lipstick almost everyday as well! I started junior year of high school and have been in love ever since. I love simple outfits with a pop of color on my lips - often red :)

  17. I don't wear lipstick everyday, but I do love it. I think I started wearing it a little later in high school because my mother was opposed to makeup and I definitely wore in through high school and beyond. The main reason I don't wear it frequently is because I hate the smudges on everything I eat and drink. I know on thing though: Lipstick always looks great on you! :-)

  18. No lipstick for me, but Burt's Bee's original peppermint chapstick is my must-apply lip product. I love how it makes my lips feel soft and tingly!
