5 Blue Lip Looks I Promise You Won’t Regret Trying
A few years ago I was on a mad hunt for a blue lipstick and it took me a good year or two to find one I loved, like really loved. I won’t front, blue isn’t an easy color to pull off on your lips, but when you do it right, people absolutely take notice. I’m talking compliments on compliments on compliments.
If you’ve ever done purple, trust me you can rock blue. The thing is you want to be mindful of the shade you choose, opting for blues with deeper tones as opposed to brighter hues which can wash you out or make you look a little clownish. You may not wear a blue lip every single day, but my goal with this list of options is to show you you could if you wanted to.
This is the shade seen above on me and my friend and fellow beauty write Jacqueline Yates. If you like a little shine with your color, this lip paint is definitely the route to go. And despite it’s slickness, it has staying power that lasted through several cocktails (FYI).
This navy blue shade gives you the best of both texture worlds with softer application and finish than most mattes with the same high pigmentation. And it’s $6. What do you have to lose?
This one’s a little pricey, but it’s Dior — and it’s fabulous. If you’re going to splurge, this blue lip makes it worth it.
This was the blue I found after years of searching that made all my hard work worth it. It looks amazing on all shades of brown.
This is a gunmetal navy shade with a metallized finish. It looks intimidating at first but once you put it on you’ll know it’s a winner.
