This Woman Swatched 97 Different Lipsticks So You Don't Have To
Beauty aficionados know a good lipstick swatch when they see one. So when we spotted a Reddit user who tried on 97 different lip colors and took photos of each shade to share with the world, we were completely enamored by this woman. Reddit user Itselyse not only tested out a variety of colors but also different brands, from drugstore favorites like Rimmel London and Maybelline to cult classics like MAC and Nars.
What's even more impressive is that she tried on all the colors in one day and shared some beauty advice on how to keep her lips from getting too stained by the lipsticks. "I used baby wipes in between each swatch to take off most of it," she wrote. "And with the liquid lipsticks and more long wearing products, I used olive oil to break them down."
Though we could see how it'd be hard to pick a favorite, Itselyse revealed that Rimmel was her top drugstore brand for lip products. Her all-time-favorite formula is the Nars Audacious lipstick.
Though this swatch chart may not be representative of how the colors will look on all complexions, it's still pretty cool to see all the shades on an actual pair of lips — and a handy shopping guide for fair, neutral-undertone-complected women like Itselyse. Who knows? Maybe one of the 97 lip colors ahead is your new signature shade.
