Matte liquid lipstick has been the rage for quite some time now, and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for cosmetic companies to shake things up. Enter the latest lipstick trend — metallic liquid lipstick.
One thing to know about metallic lipstick is that it shows every line, bump and imperfection. Unless your lips are relatively smooth, metallic shades might not be for you. Of course, one option is to use a satin or matte shade, then apply a bit of metallic lipstick in the center of your lips. This will provide a pretty highlight and also give the illusion of larger lips.
Some beauty reviewers have said that a few companies’ versions of metallic lipsticks are over-the-top shiny, but I don’t have that complaint about the shades I tried from Ofra. In fact, the brightest shade I’m wearing in these photos — Monaco — isn’t very metallic at all.
If you haven’t tried Ofra’s lipsticks, why not give them a shot? They’re fairly inexpensive, long-lasting and comfortable.
