How about a vampy lip look for Spring? Ya? Nay? Vampy lips seem to always crawl back into our lives around Fall but I keep seeing quite a few richer berry shades and even black colors that are popping up for Spring. Hell, look at Urban Decay Gash! I’d never wear this bright a red in Spring but lord knows I’m smitten with the shade!
Wait, is this a thing now?
Recently Smashbox introduced a new Be Legendary Lipgloss and wouldn’t you know it one of the shades is a sparkling black! It’s called Black Tied (oooo MAC is gonna be pissed you stole their name) and is a sheer black shade with multi tone shimmer. This will make a nice overcoat on red lipsticks to vamp things up and believe it or not it’ll probably look quite alright all its own as the natural pink or red of your lips will give it a bit of a purpley look so not all black!
Givenchy also has a new Magic Lipstick that looks black, but it isn’t..this is a new customizable lipstick that changes to a bitten blackened berry on lips reacting with your quote skin pH unquote to create that custom shade.
These are both odd releases for Spring and probably would be better suited for Fall. I know I’m embracing more of a nude lip look for Spring this year but typically I really like lighter, natural pinks the kind you’d get from products like Tarte Skintuitive Lip Tint. Just something natural and fresh!
Do you rock hard lips in the Spring?
Yay or nay on blackened berries and possible black lipstick or gloss for Spring looks?
