Trending: Metallic Lipstick

Trending: Metallic Lipstick

Forget florals and pastels for spring because, groundbreaking, right? The lipstick trend we’re seeing everywhere, and foresee we’ll be wearing until summer is metallic.

Trend-setting it-girl Kylie Jenner made a case for the trend early last year when she released the Metals, three metal matte lip shades, added to her cosmetics line. Kylie and big sis Khloé have been sporting metallic pout’s ever since, and as always, other celebs have followed suit.

For spring, some of our favorite brands are launching lipsticks in metal finishes, like Urban Decay and Tom Ford, whose newest launch of lip colors includes 5 metallic shades. Our faves from Tom Ford are: Private Life, a cool champagne; Aperture, a trendy copper; and Spanish Flame, a metallic coral.

We’re loving the shiny, metal lip trend: It’s universally appealing, fun, flirty, and wearable in almost every shade. It’s like highlighter for your lips (and you know how BIG highlighting turned out to be).

Get in on the trend today with one of these metallic masterpieces:
Touch In Sol Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo ($25), double-ended so you get a matte and a gloss.
