All that glitters is not always gold. This time, we’re not talking diamonds or trend setting chokers— we’re talking gold glitter. Something you can wear on your lips that is coming in huge. Metallic. Lips. Matte lips will forever be a fave, but this shimmery, look has captured our hearts. The metallic finish is not too glossy and not too matte, which is perfect, right? There are many colors that make the look so subtle from vibrant green to the neutral browns, it has got to be one of the greatest lip trends to feed our lip stick addiction.
What is even better is that we had metallic lips in mind for months now so when we heard that Colourpop recently released their four new Ultra Metallic Lip shades, we went crazy. It’s like they were reading our minds, which made our love for Colourpop grow 10x more. It’s a win-win-and-WIN for us.
Colourpop made their four different shades in the neutral brown and red/purple tones. Suuuper vintage and so pretty. Once we swatched these babies, there was no way we were going to take them off (literally hahaha). It was love at first sight. Many other cosmetic brands have added metallic lips to their collections such as, Kylie Jenner and Milani. This brings up the question, “What would Kylie Jenner do?” It’s time to bring on the metal!
Whatever the next big lip trend is, we’ll be on board because who doesn’t love a good shade to match their outfit? Just like Kylie Jenner’s liquid lipsticks, Colourpop’s Ultra Metallic Lip shades sell out in less than an hour so make sure you’re following their Instagram and Snapchat (Colourpopco) to keep an eye out for their next restock dates and times to get your hands on yours. Let us know what other lip trends we should follow because we’re always curious to know!
So while we were shooting these photos, our trusty blog camera who wasn't so trust shut down on us. That didn’t stop us from getting shit done, so we switched it up and tried using our iPhones. Thanks to Apple and it’s great camera quality (we wish this was sponsored), we were able to still get some blog-worthy pics. Taken with the camera or taken with our phones, these pictures still don't do the Ultra Metallic Lip justice. You’ll have to try it out and see for yourself.
Currently obsessing over these metal-mania lips,
