Hey guys … so while I have been deeply in love with my matte lipsticks, things have been changing in the lipstick world.
The trend has gone from the more matte the better to super shine metallic lipsticks.
I am not sure how I feel about this look but the celebs and fashion houses are making it work. Before investing in what seems to be a fleeting trend, I thought I would test the waters with the Metallic Matte lip crayon from Primark. I purchases the 24k Dip and the Dark Berry.
I have used these lip crayons before so I had a rough idea of what I would be getting. Check out my other reviews here. The quality I get in these lip crayons are so worth every bit of my £2, But sharpening them are a nightmare.
I know fashion has a way of going and coming but these metallic lipstick’s remind me of something my mum would have worn in the 80’s.
That said, we are in the times were highlighting is everything! I see this trend as a way of highlighting and bringing focus to the lip.
My number one tip for wearing metallic lips is to really tone down everything else. Allow your lips to be the main jewel and focus on your face . I don’t have any facial pieceings but this look makes me feel like am wearing jewellery on my lips, Especially the 24k dip.
My last comment about this product is that on applying this lipstick, I noticed that it has a slight scent to it.
I am not keen on using scented products on my face … but I guess sweet smelling lips might not be such a bad thing. 😗
Let me know what you think of this trend?? Would you try it ??
