Can't decide which color lipstick to wear? Let the lipstick decide for you. Once these formulas make contact with your pout, a combination of your natural pH and temperature cause the once-unconventional hue to transition into a peach, coral, or hot pink variation.
The concept of shade-shifting lipsticks isn't a terribly new one—our fixation with them began back in the '90s, when mood lipsticks filled the shelves of our local Claire's, and a few years ago, brands started to roll out pink hues activated by your own body heat. The latest crop of color changing formulas aren't limited to a single shade of pink, and come infused with shimmer, plumping agents, skincare ingredients, and even actual flowers suspended within the bullet. Shop a few of the coolest options currently on the market below.
