Ladies, listen up: do we have a beauty hack you're going to want to hear about.
Whether or not you want to try it out is an entirely different story, but I digress ...
During a recent episode of the US series The Doctors, the team shared that to find your perfect "nude" lip colour all you need to do is match your lippy to your nipples.
Yep. No more standing under the fluorescent lights at the beauty counter doing these ones:
Instead, a quick peek down your shirt in Priceline should do the trick.
Since the episode aired in late April, the internet has had a number of feelings about this strange beauty tip.
Wearing a lipstick that is your nipple color... lmao 2017 is wild— electricwomvnart (@electricwomvn) May 13, 2017
If it wasn't for the Internet how would I know that my perfect lipstick shade is the color of my nipple??— Ae Padilla (@Ae_Padilla) May 13, 2017
Many pointed out the logistical issues involved in the nipstick technique. Will makeup stores need to install dressing rooms, for example? Or some kind of draw-around curtain perhaps?
I'm fascinated by the whole perfect lipstick shade matching your nipple... but like... how do you test this?? Honestly? I want answers.— Cassie Hernandez 🥀 (@CassHernandez13) May 12, 2017

I took like 6 pictures of my boob this morning to test the nipple and lipstick color theory.— Lark (@ChibiLarkspur) May 12, 2017
And while skeptics abound, others are already completely convinced of its genius:
