Be it mixing our precious jewels with beeswax or crushing bugs to create the signature shade, we, women, throughout centuries have done just about everything to rock beautiful lip colors. There really isn’t a more beloved beauty product than lipstick. So much so that it has gotten to have its own National Day celebration. Any excuse to go shopping for more, right?
This National Lipstick Day, we bring to you 11 of the season’s “IT” lipstick colors to help you find your signature shade, or get you in rotation of the entire bevy of trends this summer:
While mattes might be all the rage this season, go for a more youthful look by pairing a gloss with this fresh rosy pink color, as seen at the Chanel runway.
Get the Look: Try bareMinerals – Statement Matte Liquid Lipcolor – Juicy and top it off with bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm Punch Pop. This silky, primer-infused lipcolor dries to a long lasting, full-coverage natural matte finish while the lip oil gives a glossy look with just a hint of watermelon shade.
Take a page from the Bibhu Mohapatra runway, and opt for a fuchsia pink lipstick that is reminiscent of its namesake tropical flower, making it the ultimate summer pick.
Get the Look: Try Butter London Plush Rush Lipstick – Rebellious for a similar look. A fuchsia pink creme plumping lipstick with a Captivating colour in the most cushiony, velvety texture. Feels like a pillow top on your lips!
Nothing says summer more than a fruity pink lipstick. America Ferrera was recently seen rocking this beautiful lip color in NYC.
Get the Look: Try bareMinerals Statement Luxe-Shine Lipstick Biba. The pink lipstick has a beautiful blue undertone providing just the right touch of glamour.
From Marco de Vincenzo to Dolce & Gabbana, everyone used a different shade of magenta on their runways. We particularly loved this one from Paule Ka show for the summer season.
Get the Look: Try bareMinerals Statement Luxe-Shine Lipstick Alpha. It’s a gorgeous, long lasting full coverage lipstick with luxurious shine, but if you need a little more wet look, top it off with BABOR AGE ID Lip Oil 02 Pink Magenta.
The ever gorgeous Jennifer Hudson rocked a rather unconventional metallic purple this season and we are all up for copying it. If you are looking to try something new, something risky this summer, give this shade a try.
Get the Look: Try Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip Metal Foiled Brat. The liquid lip glides on the full coverage of a lipstick and the high shine of a gloss in a single coat with a metallic/vinyl finish.
Step out of your comfort zone and try this look from the Jason Wu runway. The vibrant orange color couldn’t be more apt for summer and it’s the perfect way to try something new this season.
Get the Look: Try Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick Fireball. The bright orange red matte color is perfect for the summer months. Top it off with a bright orange lip balm Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil – Genre or Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm – Jaffa for a more electric, glossy effect.
Setting a new street trend, Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing grey lipstick just this week. While, it may not be an ideal everyday color for everyone, it sure is one heck of a try buy for the National Lipstick Day.
Get the Look: Try Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip Metal Space Case. With a metallic finish, this lipstick rolls two trends in one for you to try this season.

Get the Look: Try Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip and Cheek Color Laurel Canyon Coral. Use it both on your cheeks and lips for a subtle sheen or a full on flush. Dab it away with the included sponge for a stain effect.
Models were seen rocking this gorgeous, bright cherry red shade at the Creatures of the Wind runway. Scream summer by pairing it up with bronzed skin.
Get the Look: Try bareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Lipstick Live It Up for a similar look. The super saturated color leaves lips with full coverage and tops it off with a rich, satin finish to complete your healthy and more voluptuous pout.
For a more in-your-face, but nonetheless, gorgeous red look, try this shade of punchy red as seen at the model at Mary Kantrantzou. It’s definitely not for the faint hearted.
