8 Lipsticks That *Actually* Look Good on Everyone

Beauty

For some women, lipstick is the only makeup requirement necessary. Need a little boost to your attitude? Throw on your favorite shade, and you’re instantly in a better mood! 

The hard part? Finding the perfect tint for you. Luckily, in honor of #NationalLipstickDay, we’ve put together a list of the MINDBODY San Diego office’s favorite hues, styles, and brands! 

 

FOR THE PERFECT MATTE RED SEEKER 

Bare Minerals

Color: Juicy 

“It’s hard for me to find a product that doesn't dry my lips out, especially a matte red lip color. I love how moisturizing the Bare Minerals lipstick is, and the color looks amazing on all skin tones. It's the perfect red for day to night!" 
- Lauren Thalman, Product Manager


FOR THE “A LITTLE MORE THAN NUDE” LOVER 

Bobbi Brown

Color: Brownie

“I’ve been a loyal “Brownie” by Bobbi Brown fan for over 8+ years now (and have gone through way too many to count!). It’s the perfect pinky/brown shade that adapts to your natural lip color. A semi-matte finish combined with enriching, hydrating vitamins C and E, it keeps your lips nourished all day long!”
 - Devin Dilday, Marketing Communications Specialist 


FOR ALL THE PRETTY IN PINK LADIES 
Sephora

Color: Shining Moment 

“This shade of pink is the perfect pop of color—any time of the year. I love the high-shine, lightweight formula. It glides on seamlessly, almost like a gloss. It keeps my lips moisturized and nourished with the perfect amount of subtle color, so it’s great for work, happy hour, or running errands.” 
- Brittany Raine, Team Lead, Marketing Content  


FOR THE PRACTICAL, BUT I'M ALSO HERE TO PARTY CHIC
Sugar Coral Lip Collection

Color: Bold, Juicy Coral

“It’s one of my faves and all-time best selling lip treatment for a reason. The entire Sugar Coral lip collection includes SPF 15 that moisturizes, protects, and smoothes your lips with a little bit of color. It’s the practical and stylish, so you can feel good during the day and spice things up at night. Can’t get enough of it!” 
- Keana Noons, Marketing Manager

 
FOR THE (KINDA) ZEN SOUL SEARCHER

Pure Zen

Color: Pure Zen 

“You can always find Pure Zen in my purse! I love the semi-glossy finish and comforting feel. It also provides long-term hydration, as well as an instant shine. It’s the perfect pick-me-up throughout the day and into the night!”  
- Mariah McFarland, Manager, Product Management 


FOR THE GLOSSY-ON-THE-GO GAL
Glossier

Color: Rose

“My favorite lip product at the moment is Glossier Rose Balm Dotcom! During the summer I like to keep my lips protected from the dry heat in San Diego. I love the light rose scent, and even though it’s not technically a lipstick, it has a hint of pink which is great to wear any time of day!” 
- Hanna Hutchison, Consumer Marketing Services Associate 

 

FOR THE BOLDER, THE BETTER BEAUTY

Revlon

Color: Purple Aura 

“I got Revlon® Super Lustrous™ Lipstick as a sample from BeautyCon and immediately bought it after. It’s great for days you don’t want to wear makeup but want to add a little bit of glam in your life. If you want to make a statement with bold lip color and don’t know where to start, this one's for you!”  
-  Yuki Daniel, Executive Assistant 


FOR THE LIP BALM LOVERS  

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Color: Original

“My skin is too sensitive for most makeup, so I use Burt's Bees' Beeswax Lip Balm to keep my lips hydrated. I love that it's natural and has Peppermint Oil in it for a nice little tingle. I keep one in my car and one in my bag for whenever I need to reapply!” 
- Erica Arvanitis, Copywriter

What Are the Benefits of an Online Gym Membership?

That’s something I never expected to hear. Think about it: we join gyms and studios because of their equipment, instructors, space, community (and AC, of course). But who’s to say we can’t get all that—or at least most of it—with virtual and online classes, too? In this new wave of wellness, we’re all switching up our fitness routines as we switch up our everyday schedules and habits. It’s not just in-studio or at-home anymore. It’s in-studio, at-home, at the park, beach, parking lot, rooftop...virtual, hybrid, Instagram Live, online, on-demand, and so much more. As we’re adapting, adjusting, finding our groove, etc., online gym memberships enter the frayHas a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? 

So, why should we care about online gym memberships? 

There are tons of benefits to an online gym membership, especially right now.

Let’s break this down: 

1. Scheduling convenience 

A virtual/online gym fitness membership is a monthly subscription that gives you access to tons of live stream fitness classes you can take anywhere, from studios across the globe. These fitness studios offer tons of at-home workouts, group exercise, and one-on-one training sessions to choose from, no matter your exercise program or fitness level. With so many options, it’s easy to find one that fits your schedule. Whether you want to fit in a morning flow before work, combat that afternoon slump with some cardio, squeeze in some strength training before dinner, or wind down with an evening barre class, you can pick and choose classes to fit your fitness routine. 

2. Minimizing exposure to COVID-19 

And because they’re online, you can take these classes from the comfort of your home (or wherever you are), thus minimizing your exposure to COVID-19 and eliminating your commute to the gym or studio. By now, many of us have our designated “workout spot,” whether it’s an actual weight room, a quick scooch of the coffee table, or a grassy area in the backyard. Maybe you’re comfortable here... maybe you’ve even learned to love it.  

With an online gym membership, you can stay in your safe space/comfy workout spot. Or, you can go somewhere new (local park, beach spot, a different area of the house, you know). You can access these virtual, live stream fitness classes from any device, so you can prop up your phone, laptop, or tablet wherever you want to go, or roll out your mat in front of the big screen TV in your living room. 

3. Variety 

We all have our favorite, go-to workouts. But sometimes, it feels good to switch it up (especially right now). Working from home all day, many of us are craving some variety and excitement, and an online gym membership can definitely help with that. According to our recent poll about COVID’s effect on our fitness routines, 64% of you have tried new online workouts since the start of the pandemic—I know I have. Maybe it’s because trying new things is easier in the comfort of our homes, maybe we’re finally able to try some classes we normally can’t find locally, or maybe we’re all just bored out of our minds...I don’t know. But I’m excited about it.  

With an online gym membership, you can get that spice you’re looking for easily. Start out your Monday by hitting some HIIT, ease your sore muscles with some Restorative Yoga, and end the week with some dance cardio to pretend you’re at the club. The world is yours.

4. Working out without a commute 

My favorite part? No commute. There are literally no more excuses when it comes to skipping workouts. No traffic, no schedule conflicts, no fear of returning to the studio. You don’t even have to worry about packing a gym bag with a change of clothes and shower supplies or prepping a snack or protein shake to bring to work. Just shut your computer, throw on some leggings, and get to work. 

5. Community 

Community—the element of online fitness memberships we don’t often think of. When we go into studios, we understand the beauty of a fitness community. We’re greeted by our instructors, we chat with others in the class, and we all sweat together and encourage each other throughout. But working out at home is different... or is it?  

We can do workouts on our own at home all we want, but we’re definitely going to miss out on the community aspect we all know and love. But, with live stream classes, we can create a different kind of community. The beauty of it? It’s not just your neighbors anymore. Anyone with an online fitness membership can join these classes, regardless of where they’re located in relation to the studio, so you can be working out alongside people from all over the world—now that’s something I can get behind.
