Which Lipstick Trend Do You Prefer For Fall—Matte Or Glossy?

Not since the days of Cindy Crawford and plum-brown shades have we really rocked a matte lip. But Nars Cosmetics is bringing the texture back with the announcement of their new Pure Matte lipstick. Another lipstick debut that has garnered lots of blog attention recently—Tom Ford's Private Blend collection, which features a super-glam, high-sheen finish.

Three Ways To Smacking Lips

Sometimes, a lip stain just isn't enough. This trio from Bare Escentuals contains a lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss all in one package. So you can play around with different combinations depending on the look you want. Wear just the lipstick or gloss for an office-appropriate look, and then get a shiny, pigmented pout…

Ke$ha’s Blue Lips Are Not A Good Look

I might have been able to excuse Ke$ha's blue lipstick if she hadn't also worn teal eyeliner. But when I really think about it, this is a really tame cry for attention; she could do worse. On another note, doesn't Ke$ha look like Stephanie Pratt? [NYC, 8/2/10]…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Stars Collection

I've had a love-hate relationship with lipstick for the last two years. I love red lipstick and apply it perfectly in the morning, even using a matching lip liner to outline and fill in my lips first. But it never fails that once I take a mouthful of yogurt at work, my spoon is wearing…

The New Meaning Of Drawn-On Lips

Back in the '90s, no one wanted anyone to know they used lip liner to make their lips look fuller. But now, the new trend is to totally relocate your lips so they can be any size you want 'em. But seriously, while this looks cool in a beauty editorial, I hope no one trie…

Will Crazy Lipstick Colors Ever Be Mainstream?

Do you remember when nail polish colors other than pink and red were shocking? When Chanel's Vamp came down the runway in 1994, it caused a major stir. Now everyone wears purple, navy, and, yes, even black on their fingers, but outrageous lip colors are another story. Every once in a while we'll see makeu…

I Love Lipstick

Truth to tell, that lipstick survey -- the one that says lipstick is, well, over -- has been bumming me out. I love the stuff. But this wasn't always the case. When I was a little girl in the '80s watching my mother slather bright pinks across her cheeks and perky blues over her lids,…

Pro Trick To Get Lips Their Darkest Aubergine

Besides all the signature zigzag prints and tribal silhouettes, the real star of Missoni's Fall 2010 show was (for me anyway), the deep, dark eggplant-hued lips the models sported in what MAC makeup artist Lucia Peroni called "A little bit Scottish, a little Masai, a little punk." Sounds good to me. I'm a little obsessed…

The Sleek Lip Show At Davidelfin

Makeup artist Gregory Arlt dubbed the Davidelfin fall 2010 beauty look the "lip show" because, as you guessed it, the makeup was all about lipstick. Most of the Davidelfin collection is black, but Gregory said he was inspired by two magenta coats, so he created a full lip to match. He first applied the Proce…

Two-Toned Lips At Nanette Lepore

The beauty at Nanette Lepore's fall 2010 show was inspired by women in Renaissance paintings, but makeup artist Makky's two-toned lips look anything but old-fashioned. He applied MAC Cosmetics' MAC PRO lipstick in Charred Red, a dark burgundy, to the bottom lip. Then, he put Odyssey, a bright fuchsia, on the top. While Makky doesn't…

Would You Rock Chloe’s Super Fuchsia Lip?

We're slightly obsessed with the statement lips Chloe Sevigny rocked at Interview magazine's 40th anniversary party. And we've always loved pink hues, but we've never gone quite so bold. Chloe's shade seems to be a magenta-fuchsia that's almost purple. If you do want to try it out, here are some suggestions for purpley-pink products to…

Is Suri Cruise Wearing Lipstick?

Look! A celebrity toddler in whore paint! That's what Celebitchy says, though we still think the jury is out on whether Suri Cruise is wearing lipstick in this photo. But Suri and her mom, Katie Holmes, did brave New York City's Snowpocalypse [Blizzardpalooza! -- Editor] yesterday to walk over to Sephora — a makeup store.

New Lippies Protect Your Pucker

Since we hear your lips are the secret to youth and all, it would only make sense that you'd do everything in your power to protect them, right? Lancôme just launched a new line of lip gloss with anti-aging ingredients, called the Lancôme L'Absolu Crème De Brilliance, which seems to be just the way to…

The Perfect Nude Lipstick

For their new spring collection, Nars had supermodel Amber Valletta channel Catherine Deneuve in the iconic "La Chamade." “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian ‘16th Arrondissement’ way," said Francois himself. "She [Deneuve] is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for spring, a time to embrace color and get noticed.” While we…

How Much Lipstick Have You Eaten This Year?

There's a well-known cosmetics fact that's been floating around for years now: Over the course of the average woman's lifetime, she will inadvertently eat seven pounds of lipstick. SEVEN POUNDS. And as gross as that statistic is, it's never been more disgusting than as evidenced in this video starring Stevie Ryan and commissioned by natural…

Can Redheads Rock Red Lips?

Check out Christina Hendricks and Nicole Kidman, two of Hollywood's more famous redheads. Now, look at their red, red lips. What do you think; do the red lip shades they choose work with their red hair? The jury is still out for me on Christina. (What do you think? Does it work?) But I think…

Sarah Palin Is Ready to Be Your Beauty Advisor

If you thought Sarah Palin’s moment in the spotlight was over after the election, you were seriously mistaken. The "average hockey mom/governor" won’t give up that fast. Already she has transformed herself from politician to author, completing her memoir and landing on the bestseller list before the chronicle has even been released. But that's not…
