While new year resolutions are still fresh [and you’re extra pumped to continue the workout routine you’ve established by that single YET solid visit to the gym], let’s think about some simple ways that can make every day, every caffeine run, every dog walk and every errand just a tiny bit better. One way we know of that certainly helps to light up the day is LIPSTICK. We’ve gathered 25 (!) lip products that do exactly that.

With these recently released or became iconic over time neutral favorites, we promise you’ll develop sentimental feelings to those lip stains on your coffee cups. Join the club.
