Precious Metals: Would You Dare To Wear Metallics?

Metallic Liquid Lips

It’s not one for the faint-hearted, but the emerging micro-trend is metallic lip finishes – a modern take on ‘frosting’, metallic mouths are dominating Instagram, and thanks to a raven-haired, mega-lipped mega-star (with a self-named range of liquid lipsticks), it’s not a look that’s likely to slink off into obscurity.

One of the bestselling shades of Jouer’s {Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick} is ‘Papaye’ (pictured) – it sold out within a few hours of arriving on Cult Beauty – ahead of its (arguably) more wearable ‘nude’ toned counterparts.

A shimmering warm peach, it’s an excellent dupe for the highly-prized ‘King K’ shade of Ms. Jenner’s Metal Matte Lipstick, while ‘Pamplemousse’ (a warm-toned gold) stands in for ‘Heir’, and ‘Praline’ (a cool pink-bronze) could easily be mistaken for ‘Reign’.

What’s more, the Jouer formulas are enriched with a cocktail of lip-friendly extracts, to nourish your skin and prevent dehydration, so your pout stays smooth, soft and smoochable…

Quite literally worth their weight in gold (there’s a scramble to lay hands upon them), it’s the trend that marks ‘setters’ from ‘followers’. So which will your lips be gilded this summer? Let us know if you’ve already boarded the metal-mouth band-wagon.
