What do you think of the metallic lip trend?

I actually prefer a glossy lip look myself. I always look like a robot in metallics! Although, I will say with clear gloss on top, metallics can really POP!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love the way they initially look but don’t like the faded out silver chunks left when the color wears off. I’ll have to pass on these. Pretty Lance colors though.

    I’m with you Muse, glossy all the way! The metallic look reminds me of the frosty crap we had back in the day. I know the formulas are far better now but it still looks wrong to me. But if I was many years younger, I might have to try that glitter lip for the hell of it!

    • Isabella Muse

      yup! I end up looking very frosty in metallics on my eyes and my lips can’t do 🙁

  • Heidi

    Part of me is excited about metallics, probably because it’s the thrill of the new. But I do remember lots of frosty pink, nude and peach lipsticks back in the 1980s when I’d be swatching my mom’s, aunt’s and cousin’s stashes, but I never thought they looked good on me.
    I will make an exception for one metallic, though. Lipstick Queen’s Wine Metal looks velvety and gorgeous, and I’d be willing to try the red metallic shade she has as well.

    I like them. Not for every day, but for a night out, very nice. I have an AWESOME one from Jouer, Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in the color Dahlia, described as a metallic electric plum. The color is so pretty, it’s comfortable, and it lasts and lasts and lasts. Yes, I am happy about this trend.

    I think it’s fun for the weekend. I got a deluxe sample of the Touch in Sol one and I can’t wait to try it out on Saturday.

    I have a Milani metallic liquid lipstick and it’s freaking gorgeous and super long lasting! It’s a tiny bit drying, but that’s the nature of the product . it lasted through drinking and just needed a small touch up after eating. I’m super impressed and am thinking about getting a few more colors.

    • Isabella Muse

      I have a few too, they really are lovely and they don’t look like a bunch of frost took over my mouth!

    I noticed with the metallic eyeshadows, on the colors I like, the 2nd shade is black mixed with the color. I noticed this with Urban Decay’s C Note — a frosted green and Buxom’s Twilight Tryst — an iridescent peacock shade.

    The Lancome’s are really a nice hybrid – at least in the lighter colors. They don’t have that completely opaque metallic look that the others have. And if you want to try a metallic but not spend a lot, Colourpop’s are nice and affordable. I agree, the fully opaque’s can look very 1980 and a bit out of place! 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I haven’t tried the Lancome ones yet, been tempted by the red one though 😀 Colorpop def has some gorgeous metallic shades 😀 and cheap!

  • blee

    Oh, I was going to try them, but I backed out. How do they do with gloss over top? Have you tried that with them? Thanks 🙂

    I like metallic lipsticks rather than lip glosses. Especially if they are a copper shade.

    I am a shimmer, glitter & metallic shade fiend but I feel like the hype over metallic lips seems to be a generational thing. Sometimes “metallic” is actually just “frost” but a lot of the people wearing them weren’t around when frost was in vogue the first time or more notably when it went out of vogue. I just remember being little and being attracted to anything sparkle and the older women in my life turning up their lip at the “frostiness.” I learned through my own trial & error that frost is def not a good look on me so I’ve been avoiding the metallic lip trend, as pretty as they may look in the tubes!

    I was old the last time these came around. Just cannot get behind these at all. Every once in a while, there’s a product that I feel too old for. These are it. Now, if bite put out a dual end with squid ink and kale, I’d be all over it. Those are dark and menswear-like, conservative colors in an unconventional placement. Metals, nah. It’d be a trying too hard look.
