Metallic lipsticks are a truly statement-making product. “We are in a time where makeup has become an obsession for a new generation, and making a statement is definitely ‘in’”, Robert Green says.
“Metallics are bold, vibrant and create dimension to your lips”. Green suggests wearing metallic lipsticks in the evening, layered on top of a matte lipstick to create dimension.
They are basically highlights on your lips, and they also cut down on the highlighter on your face. This leaves a flawless, fresh faced look with a gorgeous pop of color.
Not only can you flaunt around town with your pop of lip color, they look incredibly good on Instagram. They are the new way to create instant celebrity. “Most importantly, it’s a trend that photographs incredibly well and looks great on everyone”.
They work perfectly for the girl who is too lazy for makeup, but desperately wants to flaunt her good looks and excellent color choices. The best way to wear a metallic lipstick is to have the rest of your makeup looking clean and minimal, so the focus can be entirely on the lips and their vibrant new color.
They are a far cry from the generic frosty colors of the 90’s. They are available in a much wider and more vibrant range of colors than the icy pinks of days gone by. They have much more refined pigmentation, so it’s less robot-looking.
All in all, metallic sheen on the lips really makes them pop, so it’s no wonder the trend is soaring.
