One Woman Swatched 97 Lipsticks: See the Photos Here

Share

Our first thoughts upon hearing this headline was that we wish we had the time on our hands that this Reddit user–who swatched 97 different lipsticks on her lips and photographed them all–apparently has; however, then we saw her lips, and the feelings of jealousy over the amount of spare time she has transformed into jealousy over the perfection of her pucker. (Just look at that shape!) What we should be feeling, though, is gratitude for the fact that she’s done all this work so that we can more easily choose a lip color to test out the next time we’re on the market for one. Most of the brands she tested were from the drugstore, too, so you can take a look at the options and grab the one or two that most excites you on your way out tonight (and by ‘out’ we mean ‘back to the couch, to Netflix and chill’). Now, all we need is a few additional girls of varied skin tones to replicate the project for those of us who aren’t so fair skinned–any volunteers?
