Metal Mouth

Liquid lipstick has been the reigning Queen of makeup the last few years. While they have their place I’m loving the new trend of metallic lips. The last few months I’ve seen more and more brands come out with metallic lipsticks, Smashbox, Urban Decay, and Kevin Aucoin. I wandered into a Sephora a few months back and they had a entire display of metallic lip options. I picked up a few options as well as a drugstore option!


From Sephora I picked up the Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo from Touch in Sol in the shade Sophie and Le Metallique Metallic Lip Lacquer from Lancome in Lavender Patina. From Ulta I found from NYX the Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in the shade Dark Nebula.

The Touch in Sol duo is a liquid lipstick and gloss duo. The liquid lipstick is a little on the patchy side but the gloss is incredibly opaque. You could probably wear the gloss on its own.

The NYX Cosmic Metal is truly a lip cream. Its much thicker than a gloss but doesn’t dry down like a liquid lipstick. Now this is clearly not the most everyday wearable color but for less than $8 why not try something new and different!

The Lancome lip gloss is beautifully soft. Its opaque but not like the NYX Cosmic Metal Lip Cream. Its glossy but not sticky, its not the most long wearing- but its a gloss so I don’t judge it too harshly.

So far I’m loving the metallic lip trend. Which new trends are you enjoying?
