The lipstick aisles in the store always draw us in. Row after row of perfect bright, dark, and nude shades make any girl want to wear lipstick more often. With so many choices, it is often tempting to buy your favorite colors and shades without considering what would actually look good with your skin tone, hair color, and personal style. As a result, we found pictures like these for National Lipstick Day that reveal the worst shades of lipstick ever worn. The emerald green may have looked chic and sophisticated in the container, but on your lips? Not so much.
