I'm a lip balm kinda girl but since it's National Lipstick Day, I think its fitting to write about the one lipstick that got me into the lipstick game. I was working on a story for my day job when I received a sample of BITE's collection of lip colors. I was instantly drawn to the Tannin shade-- the color was so bright, coral, and red at the same time. I couldn't resist, so I gave it a test run at 9am on a Monday. I never thought I would love a red lip or lipstick for that matter, but this shade really did it for me, and it lasted well into the afternoon (the best part was that it instantly lit up my face). Needless to say that this is now my go-to lipstick when I need a mid day pick-me-up or when I'm going out and have zero time to get ready. Happy National Lipstick Day!
