5 Clean Lipsticks in Celebration of National Lipstick Day

Makeup artist extraordinaire Jeanine Lobell walks us through her five favorite must-have clean lipsticks in honor of National Lipstick Day. Because, how many more times do we need to hear that stat about how much lipstick we eat per year?

If you've been on the beauty beat for longer than a second, you've most likely encountered the name "Jeanine Lobell." Lobell, (the original founder of Stila Cosmetics) has had an illustrious career, being the brains behind some of the most memorable beauty looks on the pages of Vogue and W, and the faces of Cate Blanchett and Michelle Williams.

"Anyone who knows me knows I am a total lipstick fan," Lobell tells Sage & Sound. "For me, I can throw on a great red or fuchsia lip and feel like it looks like my whole face came alive. It can totally change my mood"

Here, in honor of National Lipstick Day, she shares her favorite five clean products.

Kjaer Weis' Naturally Liquid Lipstick in Red

A Certified Organic velvety shade. "This is a gorgeous long-wear red that stays put and doesn't transfer as much as other lip products"
