8 Lipsticks That *Actually* Look Good on Everyone

Beauty

For some women, lipstick is the only makeup requirement necessary. Need a little boost to your attitude? Throw on your favorite shade, and you’re instantly in a better mood! 

The hard part? Finding the perfect tint for you. Luckily, in honor of #NationalLipstickDay, we’ve put together a list of the MINDBODY San Diego office’s favorite hues, styles, and brands! 

FOR THE PERFECT MATTE RED SEEKER 

Bare Minerals

Color: Juicy 

“It’s hard for me to find a product that doesn't dry my lips out, especially a matte red lip color. I love how moisturizing the Bare Minerals lipstick is, and the color looks amazing on all skin tones. It's the perfect red for day to night!" 
- Lauren Thalman, Product Manager


FOR THE “A LITTLE MORE THAN NUDE” LOVER 

Bobbi Brown

Color: Brownie

“I’ve been a loyal “Brownie” by Bobbi Brown fan for over 8+ years now (and have gone through way too many to count!). It’s the perfect pinky/brown shade that adapts to your natural lip color. A semi-matte finish combined with enriching, hydrating vitamins C and E, it keeps your lips nourished all day long!”
 - Devin Dilday, Marketing Communications Specialist 


FOR ALL THE PRETTY IN PINK LADIES 
Sephora

Color: Shining Moment 

“This shade of pink is the perfect pop of color—any time of the year. I love the high-shine, lightweight formula. It glides on seamlessly, almost like a gloss. It keeps my lips moisturized and nourished with the perfect amount of subtle color, so it’s great for work, happy hour, or running errands.” 
- Brittany Raine, Team Lead, Marketing Content  


FOR THE PRACTICAL, BUT I'M ALSO HERE TO PARTY CHIC
Sugar Coral Lip Collection

Color: Bold, Juicy Coral

“It’s one of my faves and all-time best selling lip treatment for a reason. The entire Sugar Coral lip collection includes SPF 15 that moisturizes, protects, and smoothes your lips with a little bit of color. It’s the practical and stylish, so you can feel good during the day and spice things up at night. Can’t get enough of it!” 
- Keana Noons, Marketing Manager

FOR THE (KINDA) ZEN SOUL SEARCHER

Pure Zen

Color: Pure Zen 

“You can always find Pure Zen in my purse! I love the semi-glossy finish and comforting feel. It also provides long-term hydration, as well as an instant shine. It’s the perfect pick-me-up throughout the day and into the night!”  
- Mariah McFarland, Manager, Product Management 


FOR THE GLOSSY-ON-THE-GO GAL
Glossier

Color: Rose

“My favorite lip product at the moment is Glossier Rose Balm Dotcom! During the summer I like to keep my lips protected from the dry heat in San Diego. I love the light rose scent, and even though it’s not technically a lipstick, it has a hint of pink which is great to wear any time of day!” 
- Hanna Hutchison, Consumer Marketing Services Associate 

FOR THE BOLDER, THE BETTER BEAUTY

Revlon

Color: Purple Aura 

“I got Revlon® Super Lustrous™ Lipstick as a sample from BeautyCon and immediately bought it after. It’s great for days you don’t want to wear makeup but want to add a little bit of glam in your life. If you want to make a statement with bold lip color and don’t know where to start, this one's for you!”  
-  Yuki Daniel, Executive Assistant 


FOR THE LIP BALM LOVERS  

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Color: Original

“My skin is too sensitive for most makeup, so I use Burt's Bees' Beeswax Lip Balm to keep my lips hydrated. I love that it's natural and has Peppermint Oil in it for a nice little tingle. I keep one in my car and one in my bag for whenever I need to reapply!” 
- Erica Arvanitis, Copywriter

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
