Hear Us Out: Why Blue Lipstick Is Our Latest Beauty Must-Have



This story was originally published on April 13, 2013.

No, we haven't been inhaling nail polish fumes in the beauty closet again — we legit have a thing for blue lipstick. Or rather, Lipstick Queen's new Hello Sailor lipstick. Navy blue in the tube, our senior beauty editor Megan McIntyre readily admitted that if she saw this hue at the beauty counter, she'd run the other way. Despite her misgivings, we managed to convince her to give it a try on camera, and now we can't get her to give the lipstick back to us, even though we've asked. Repeatedly.

Want to find out just why she's got a lockdown on this lipstick? Check out today's Beauty Test Lab video to see what your lips will look like in the navy, and then tell us: Would you ever try a cray-cray color on your lips, or are you strictly a classics kind of girl?
