It's funny, but I've never really given much thought to the color of my nipples. But right now, I'm fighting a desperate urge to sneak a quick peek at my boobs because apparently, they are the key to finding my perfect "nude" lipstick.
Although as progressive as 2017 is, it's probably not appropriate to do a nipple check at my desk.
But why am I even talking about my nipples on the Internet? Well you can blame TV show The Doctors for that, because they started this titillating (I'm sorry) theory about matching your lipstick to your nipple—and now, quite understandably, the Internet can't cope.

I'm sorry but come again? I've read some weird shit on the Internet before so forgive me if I'm a little dubious that the color of my nipples equates to my perfect lipstick shade.
But luckily, it seems like I'm not the only one left a little shook by this news.
Yall about to have me at sephora with my titty out trying to find a lipstick shade to match my nipple https://t.co/vyqX9bGMMU— baby posty (@jxnni98) May 1, 2017
Although some people are keen to test out the theory first.
The internet told me the perfect lipstick shade should match my nipple. Currently swatching these on my tits. pic.twitter.com/e49fOydC5K— Jorgen (@jdzialoski) May 5, 2017
While some people were left doing a Kylie and realizing all the things.
It was st this moment I realized that almost every shade of lipstick I buy is relatively close to my nipple color and it wasn't intentional. https://t.co/GquI5DhkVI— SubtweetShawty (@LovingMyLaila) May 3, 2017

Just read that your nipple colour is your best lipstick colour and feel confused and blown away all at the same time— Rach (@rrraacchh) May 4, 2017
"Omg I love your lipstick what shade is that?!?" "My nipple." pic.twitter.com/uHVigz3Jag— Average Jane (@xoleighannox) May 1, 2017
Definitely never going to get away with this in public.
