Kat Von D’s Studded Kisses collection offers mattes, metallics and shimmers. Our fave is “Wolvesmouth,” is a deep metallic berry shade with insane shine. They sell for $21 each and the gorgeous studded casing makes these metallic lipsticks a beautiful addition to your makeup collection.
Matte Metal Lipstick, $22 at stilacosmetics.com.
Stila Matte Metal Lipsticks launched with six metallic shades earlier this year. “Mystere” was an Instagram limited edition but it was so popular, Stila made it a permanent addition to the line. It’s a dark burgundy shade with tons of shine. $22 is the normal price but here’s a secret, if you sign up to Stila’s website they always have great sales!
And there you have it. The choices out there may be a little overwhelming at first, but metallics are a trend that will be around for a while. Remember, a bold lip will make your face (and confidence) noticeable. And if you feel extra daring, try pairing it with a cat eye and walk on the wild side.
