If you didn’t know, it’s National Lipstick Day today. Which means we’re dusting off our makeup bags and bringing out those tubes of color to celebrate the day. We know if you have little kids, you’re usually covered in the food they (lovingly) fling at you. But now you can incorporate those colorful stains into your look–because why not make everything chic?
Here are some of our favorite, inexpensive lipsticks that go perfectly with your unfortunate stains:
1. Butter Kiss
Nivea Lip Care Lip Butter, $3.19. I mean, who doesn’t love vanilla and macadamia oil on their lips (and their work slacks)?
2. Raspberry Sorbet Stain
Revlon Balm Stain, $6.84. Besides being quick and easy to put on in the morning, it’ll make you feel like you just ate a sorbet cone with your kids and they got it all over the backseat of your car. Ahh, summer.
3. You Mean That’s Not Poop on Your Lips? AKA: A Prettier Poop Color
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick, $6.99. You get a hint of shine in one easy stroke.
4. Red Wine Lips
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color, $5.49 (Blissful Berry). Nothing is better than not worrying about how drinking red wine will give you that embarrassing stain, because now you have a lip color to hide it.
5. Marinara Sauce Mouth
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color, $5.49 (Red Revival). How many times has your kid gotten their tomato sauce everywhere? Too many times to think about. This is a must-have.
6. Lentil Soup Vomit Mouth
Nyx Lip Lingerie Liquid, $12.40 (Push-up). It’s not quite brown, but it’s not quite pink either.
7. Rosé Lips
Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick, $8.99 (Orange). They say it’s the summer of rosé, right?
8. Popsicle Pucker, AKA: That Stain Is Never Coming Out of the Carpet
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color, $5.49 (Brazen Berry). Every summer, your kids eat ice pops like they’re going out of style. Inevitably, one of them will drop their neon purple or blue treat on the floor–and well, that carpet will never be the same again. But at least your lips will match.
9. Food Dye Pink
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color, $5.49 (Fuchsia Flash). Trying to impress them with pink-frosted cupcakes? Yeah, that was a mistake. Need I say more?
