Commercial artist Harvey Ball created the iconic smiley face image in 1963 and since then, it has become the universal symbol of goodwill and optimism. Ball later initiated World Smile Day, celebrated annually on the first Friday of October. This happy holiday is dedicated to performing acts of kindness and sharing a smile with those that need it most.

This year, we’re celebrating World Smile Day with dual lip and cheek products that highlight those pearly whites and help you spread some cheer. Each product features smile-inducing colors that are sure to brighten up anyone’s day. Give them to those who need a little pick-me-up, or get them for yourself so you can keep the good feelings going after World Smile Day ends.
