DIOR Rouge Dior #844 Trafalgar Limited Edition.

Summer Lipsticks For Your Beautiful Smile

Pucker Up.

Ancient Egyptians wore lipsticks across genders as a sign of status, while the Greeks relegated it to the realm of prostitutes. The Chinese made some of the first lipsticks from beeswax over 1,000 years ago to protect the delicate skin of the lips. Fast-forward to 1884 when the first commercial lipsticks were invented. Today, for National Lipstick Day, we celebrate these milestones with seven picks (plus one scrub) to make your smile shine this summer.


MAC Love Me Lipstick

Every second, M∙A∙C sells one tube of lipstick somewhere in the world; every minute, it sells one Ruby Woo, the No.1 cult-favourite shade out of a kaleidoscopic stable of 150. And, on August 1, the Canadian-founded company launches its new Love Me Lipstick collection, a range of 24 pigments in three families—eight nudes, eight reds, eight purples—all infused with lychee fruit extract and argan oil.  Maccosmetics.ca

Couture comes to life with the limited-edition fiery red Rouge Dior #844 Trafalgar lipstick, which takes its cues from the legendary designer’s famous Trafalgar dress—a vibrantly hued outfit that would unexpectedly pop up in the middle of a catwalk as a coup de Trafalgar (wake-up call) to keep audiences on their toes.
