Question of the Week

Aug 8, 2011 10 comments
I was browsing swatches of NYX lipsticks on the Internet a few days ago and came across a silver lipstick, and I got to thinking, would I actually wear silver lipstick out? At first I thought I would because I love silver, I mean how gorgeous is that color? But then after applying it to my lips I had second thoughts. lol It looked so weird on me!! Maybe i'll try it again with different eye makeup lol. I was wearing a yellow/orange/brown cut crease with thick eyeliner so I don't think it went together. Maybe it would look good with a simple winged liner or a smokey black look. 

Would you ever wear silver lipstick?

    For myself, probably not. I tend to lean towards dramatic eyes, and the bravest I go on lips is when I wear red. Could look great on someone else, though!

    I do wear silver lipstick sometimes, and I found that it goes really well with light blues and mink browns. If you think it's too dramatic though I find it helps to temper it with a light beige gloss.

    Is this a picture of the NYX silver or a different brand? I'm doing a makeup photoshoot for a friend soon and he wants me to do the model in all silver so I'm actually on the hunt for a silver lip color and this is PERFECT!

    @Meredith Jessica: It is actually and eyeliner! lol It's Loreal HiP Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lightning with a clear lip gloss on top

    I own the Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lightning, too! It's so amazingly creamy. Never thought to use it on my lips.

    I would say I probably wouldn't just wear a silver lip out, unless it was Halloween and I was going as the Tin Man, for example. :-)

    Never, ever haha. Not that I would judge anyone who I see wearing silver lipstick, I just know the judgement and looks out there and I'm totally not ready for that yet!

    It's a really cool effect but I wouldn't wear it (unless I was going for something high fashion or Halloween-y). I'm lucky if I'm feeling bold enough to wear red. So the silver lip is a no-go for me!

    @Sirena Sparlestar: OMG I never thought of that! I mean I new you could melt lipsticks to depot them but I never thought of adding pigment to them!! When I read your comment I was at the store with my mom and actually told her about it I was so surprised lol. She doesn't give two cents about makeup either.lol

    I would, with an au naturél eye look. I personally think it would only work on blondes (and possibly redheads) with pale skin, though.
