Metallic Lipsticks and Glosses: A Roundup

Metallic Lipsticks and Glosses: A Roundup

I think we can all agree that the biggest lip trend as of late is everything matte. But if you’re like me and are up to date with all the newly released products, you might have noticed that metallics are making their way into our lives just as strongly as mattes once did. I, for one, am all about it.

To celebrate the coming of a new makeup craze, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite metallic lipsticks and glosses (so far.) I’m sure there’s more to come in the near future, but for now, let’s dive into these beauties.

1. ColourPop’s Ultra Metallic Lip Collection

ColourPop’s latest release was what made me stop and think, “Wow, this is really happening!” As a big fan of the company I was so happy to see them come out with an all-metallics collection to accompany their mattes and glosses. But please don’t make me pick a favorite here because I don’t think it’s physically possible! Then again, PYT will make your lips look like they’re made of gold so there’s that.

2. Lime Crime’s Velvetines Matte Lipstick In Mercury

This shade, also described as a “Metallic Mauve” is honestly one of the prettiest hues I have ever laid eyes on. Along with other marvelous shades like Blondie and Lana, Mercury is a newcomer to the metallic revolution. And based on how gorgeous and unique they look, methinks they’re definitely worth the price.

3. Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick In Papaye

Peach lipstick is not uncommon, but a metallic peach lipstick is definitely something to behold (which is probably why Shadie included this beautiful hue in 3 Frosted Lipsticks That Are Actually Super Cute). It's subtle without being bland or "flat".

4.     NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream

Yet another collection from which I can’t pick a favorite. Sue me. All the shades are just so intense and different from one another I feel like it’s worth owning them all. You’d be pretty much all set when it comes to metallic options for almost every color of the rainbow. Sign me up!

5. Stila Magnificent Metals Lip Gloss in Garnet

I wanted to include an actual gloss on this list and this gorgeous deep hue is just divine. The other shades in this collection are quite subtle and don’t really have that much pigment at all, but Garnet will provide you with that pop of color while still staying glossy, shiny and multidimensional!

Hope you enjoyed this list and let me know what metallic lipsticks and glosses you’re loving right now by chiming in on Twitter and Instagram
