You can get your shirt embroidered with your initials or ask for skim milk with a double shot of espresso for your latte, but that’s just the beginning of customization. Beauty has always been personal, but now products are getting personalized, and nothing demonstrates the trend more than color-changing lipsticks.
Often of the jelly variety and brighty colored, these lipsticks don’t apply the color they are in the tube. When the formula touches your skin, it transforms into a pretty hue based on the chemistry of your lips. We’re calling them monograms for your makeup, and we highlighted a few of our favorite formulas, below.

Sassy Lips When You’re Playing Hard to Get
If the customization aspect of this product wasn’t cool enough, the jelly formula has an actual flower inside of it, making it one of the most beautiful tubes of lipstick we’ve ever seen. And as you probably guessed, it doesn’t apply blue. Once on your lips, it turns into a unique pretty shade of pink.
