— Lipstick nation
Have you ever had that excruciating struggle of trying to find the perfect red/pink/nude/berry lipstick for your face, only to find everything you try just looks unflattering? Yeah, we have too. And while it’s a tiny problem in the grand scheme of things, it can be seriously frustrating.
One of the most important changes the beauty industry has undergone has everything to do with its acknowledgement of diversity — beauty brands are now wise to the fact that we all look different, and we all have different preferences. This has happened in so many ways, and the recent surge of products and palettes that allow users to create their own shades is just one.
So let’s get to it — these 15 brands, from high-end to affordable, have all released products that put the control in your hands.
