5 Occasions to Wear Lipstick (that You Might Not Have Considered)

Lipstick is (almost) always the perfect accessory. Here are some occasions to wear it that you may never have considered.


We’ve always identified with Audrey Hepburn’s quote, “I believe in primping at leisure, and wearing lipstick.”, so when one of the most important days of the year—National Lipstick Day—rolled around, we figured a nod in the direction of our new favourite lippy was in order.

Often, we toil over what shade works best for what occasion, so in honour of this momentous day, we’ve taken the liberty of breaking it down for you showcasing COVERGIRL’s newest shade lineup, Katy Kat (designed by Katy Perry herself!). It features 11 gorgeous, demi-matte shades, and below we share our favourites! And if you want tips on mastering the perfect lip, we’ve got those too.

1. Girls weekend at the cottage


Kick start your cottage weekend with a pop of colour! Coral Cat is a fun shade to set the mood for a fun weekend, keeping your lips hydrated in that hot summer sun. Cheers!

2. First day of school


The first day of school doesn’t have to be just for the kids. Show off your confidence and fashion savvy by pairing a bold lip (via Maroon Meow!) with a neutral or nude eye and cheek!

3. Date night


Have a night off from it all and ready to turn some heads? A seductive and bold shade such as Crimson Cat is the key to a purr-fect evening.

4. At The Game


Show your support by wearing a fun shade to match your team’s colour. Whether watching your favourite football club or your child’s soccer match, Katy Kat has a shade to show you are on the field in spirit. And when in doubt, go black (Perry Panther) to show the opposition you really mean business.

5. Running Errands


Running errands isn’t always glamourous, but it can be! Sphynx is a flawless nude that works with many skin tones and it will stay on your lips all the way until the last item on the grocery list.
