5 Must-Have Lip Colors You Need to Try Today (+ one amazing balm!)

Lipstick is the quickest way to looking polished. Add lip color and mascara (or dark sunglasses!) and you can head out the door knowing you look presentable. Some prefer neutrals, some prefer bold.

Given that today is National Lipstick Day, I rounded up several business owners that I know to ask them to share their favorite brand and color of lipstick:

Angela Mupo, hairstylist and special occasion style specialist, loves BareMineral Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in BE FREE. She says it is the perfect color for a gorgeous nude lip.

Laurie Shumate, Mary Kay Independent Sale’s Director, loves her Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Pink Passion.

Heather Gray, owner of the popular accessories web-boutique, Shop Suey Boutique.com, is a huge fan of Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Italian Rose.

Jordana Lorraine, stylist and Keratin Hair Treatment specialist, shares that NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie is super easy to apply and lasts! She also notes that this burnt coral/red shade works well on many skin tones.

Tricia Kelly, owner of the women’s clothing store, Nectar, admits she isn’t a fan of lipstick but she is a devoted C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve girl! She always has one in her purse and keeps them in practically every room of her home!

For me, it was beyond hard to decide on a favorite (there are soooo many great colors!). I mostly wear gloss but when I do wear lipstick, it is in a pinky-neutral tone. Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Honey Bear is a current favorite.

Jordana also shared this great little tip …

Cara Mia will make you a signature lipstick with your choice of color, flavor and texture – they can even color match your favorite discontinued products! The price is $25 and totally worth it to have a signature color!
