There comes a time in every woman’s life where she needs to leave a creepy message on a mirror. Maybe she needs to leave a threatening message to her husband, or a #inspo message to herself, or just needs to make something that’ll look sorta cool on Instagram. Just ask Selena Gomez.
But with all the lipsticks out there, just how do you choose the perfect tool for your creepy mirror message? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered
For threatening murder
Nothing says “you don’t know what I’m capable of” like a bold red, and “Lady Danger” by M.A.C. has the perfect name to go with your questionably legal behavior. If you don’t have an ex you need to threaten, the color also works for elaborate blackmailing schemes.
For leaving your number on his mirror the morning after
The warm berry of Nars’ “Gipsy” is perfect for reminding him “I was here last night.” The pink makes it cute, but it’s dark enough for him to know that you have plenty more mirrors to write on if he doesn’t call.
For kissing the mirror because that’s a normal thing to do
Did you know that there are women who leave bathrooms with mirrors unkissed? How will anyone even know there was a gorgeous woman who, not moments ago, was in that very room bathroom? To leave your mark, a neon, 80s pink like Bite Beauty’s “Kimchi” will stand out.

If you want to channel Liz Taylor and remind him that you cannot be bought, you’ll need a pale pink that’s rich enough to need two scrubs of Windex. Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in “Heartless” is a matte baby pink thick enough for just such an occasion, though you should definitely take any money he leaves you anyway.
For a quirky Instagram #inspiration
Do you need to remind yourself, and about 900 followers, that you’re fun and flirty and killing it? Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick in “Coven” is a lavender that will inspire them while also reminding them you’re cool enough to own lavender lipstick.
For when you’ve been eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race
You might have a lot to get off your chest, so a thick lip pencil will help you write with precision. Hourglass’ GIRL Lip Stylo in “Leader” is a bright fuchsia that’ll be legible under all that TV lighting.
