Remember the lipstick shades you just HAD to have during certain periods of your adolescence and young adulthood? Revlon Toast of New York was all the rage when I was in high school, and I definitely remember the cult of Clinique Black Honey. I asked my Facebook fans what lipsticks they remember as being iconic, and it unleashed a major walk down memory lane, folks.

Here are the top 12!
