These says, it's hard to find any food that doesn't have its own "national day" — from the simple, like National Donut Day, to the more intricate, like Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. So it's not surprising that, today, July 29, is at least two days — National Wing Day and National Lipstick Day. But what is a bit surprising is that Applebee's has found a way to combine the two: meet Saucy Gloss.

The biggest name in casual dining has teamed up with the makeup brand Winky Lux for a limited-edition collection of four lip glosses inspired by Applebee's chicken wing sauces. And yes, the resulting Saucy Glosses are apparently tinged with a bit of wing flavor and spice.

"[Wings] are one of our most popular menu items," Applebee's chief marketing officer Joel Yashinsky stated in the announcement. "So, we partnered with the development team at Winky Lux to create these lip glosses inspired by four of our most popular wing sauces. Find your perfect shade and spice up your date night by adding a little bit of that Applebee's flavor."

Sweet Chile Kiss is colored a "deep rich red kissed with a hint of fine golden chile specks." Be My Honey Pepper is described as "a gorgeous golden honey-spiced gloss with shimmering flecks." Finally, Honey BBQ-T is "a shiny, smoky barbecue hue with a side of honey sweetness."

"We are so excited to partner with Applebee's in such an unexpected way," Natalie Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Winky Lux, said.
