Lips are a big deal. The fact that there’s a day dedicated to showing our lips love only proves it. That day happens to be today, National Lip Appreciation Day.

Our lips are a distinct part of our facial features that set us apart, and in a world of assimilation, where lip filler is sorely king, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the women in the gallery below, who have naturally full lips we adore–because a lip kit could never.
