Color-curious and but slow to shift? Real talk: the only way to get used to a big change is immersion. So in the spirit of shaking up your daily routine, the girls at the BeautyMNL office have got a little dare for you: wear a different lipstick color, every single day, for a week. Studies have shown that the average length of time it takes to form a new habit is 21 days, so these next seven will be the equivalent of baby steps! We all start somewhere, right?

A few preparatory tips for the week ahead:
- Exfoliate your lips to prevent flaking at the end of the day.
- Prime before painting. That just means apply a good balm and wait for said balm to absorb.
- For longer staying power, use a lip liner underneath your lipstick. Or not—most formulas have color-extenders already built in!
