It is almost pumpkin spice season! (YASSS) But, before you go out and splurge on new hunter boots, red flannels and berry colored nail polish – take a quick look in your makeup bag. If you are missing cosmetic lip accessories that offer glossy, metallic and glitter textures then you may be missing out on some of the best makeup trends Fall 2016 has to offer this season.
A new wave of lip gloss is taking over, and it is far more pigmented and nourishing than the lip gloss we all used as preteens. While matte liquid lipsticks are amazing and long lasting, they are also, at times, very drying. As we head into cooler weather, wearing lip gloss will help relieve our lips of the dry feeling liquid lipsticks bring.
If you are looking to splurge, you can try Anastasia Beverly Hills lip glossesfor $16.oo USD
If you are looking to save, try ColourPop’s ultra lip glosses for $6.oo USD
Metallic lipsticks offer the same futuristic vibe as the 2016 Met Gala. Metallic textures reflect light, making lips appear fuller. I can see this trend being spot on in October to create robotic, alien and mermaid Halloween looks. Because metallic lipsticks have a shiny, foil finish – I would highly recommend NOT to over line your lips with this product (or in general if I am going to be honest…). The light will go directly to your natural lip line, EXPOSING IT. #NoBueno
If you are looking to splurge, try Kylie Cosmetic’s metal lipsticks for $18.oo USD
If you are looking to save, try NYX’s metal lip creams for $7.50 USD
Now on to my favorite – Glitter lips! Naomi Campbell SLAYED this look at the 2016 VMA’s. This trend is spot on for a dramatic night out and will easily carry over into the winter months to create glamorous holiday looks. I have yet to try this trend on myself. I do wonder how practical glitter lips are when it comes to eating, but other than that I am in!
To get the look try Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick Kit for $60 USD
Moral of the story: raid your nearest drug store, Sephora or Ulta Beauty!
