When it comes to makeup, lipstick can be just as much as of a game-changing accessory as say, a statement necklace or a fabulous clutch. One swipe can instantly elevate your look from conventional to dramatic, and there are numerous shades that go hand-in-hand with various occasions. Thankfully, Colourpop ‘s Lippie Stix collection makes playing matchmaker a bit easier for us. Being bold for just about every occasion has never been simpler, and it can all be done with these striking lip colors below.
Creature of the night
Creature is a dangerously bold, blackened burgundy red shade that I seriously can’t get enough of. This fierce color gets vampy lips down to a T, and is perfect for any concert, party or festivity that the night has in store for you. One swipe of this bad boy and you can be sure your look stays dramatic all night long.
Keeping it casual
Contempo is a sweet mid-tone, dusty rose that is just as chic as it is simple. Its lightness is perfect for any laidback day where you don’t feel the need to go all out, but still want to rock a lovely touch of color in your makeup. During the week, I personally enjoy wearing Contempo to my classes. Casual, yet bold. Delicate, yet daring. One swipe of this shade makes going to school in style that much easier (which, as a busy college student already pressed for time in the morning, I thoroughly appreciate.) What’s not to love?
Daring in daylight
When one thinks back to the good old grunge phase of the ‘90s, typical thoughts may include Nirvana, eyebrow piercings and some killer brown lipstick. Seeing as this style has made a massive comeback in present day 2015, it’s only fitting that we pay homage via a plum brown bold lip. Grunge is perfect for just about any day look, whether it be grabbing an iced latte at your favorite coffee spot on the weekend, shopping around on Melrose, or simply hanging out with friends. It’s a versatile color that is wearable just about anywhere, and also keeps you looking super rad all throughout.
Red lips will always be a classic when it comes to rocking a romantic look. With a gorgeous, deep brown red hue and a stunning matte finish, Poison is the perfect combination of classy, elegant and sultry. Be intoxicating with this stunning pop of color the next time you’ve got yourself a date with that special someone, or simply if your fabulous self wants to. Single, taken, it doesn’t matter: the classics work for everyone.
