Hot Lips Revolution

January 31st, 2011

I have been noticing a revolution on the streets of late.  Everyone seems to be sporting a bright pink, red or orange lip.  If not the lip then the nail but that is for another post!  And the more matte the better.  Reminds me of the Poppy lipsticks of my youth.  You could go out all night long and not reapply your lipstick.  It even gave you a lovely stain the next morning!  (Come to think of it they actually never came off!!!)  I am loving the look of these bright colours and have recently purchased Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square and am mustering up the courage to wear it out of the house.  This revolution has got me thinking about how many brides take on the challenge with red lips on the day.  Most bridal magazines suggest you go for a soft pink with a satin finish so it really is a bold statement to go for pink, red or orange.  We’ve seen quite a few brides taking up the challenge over the last year and if you ask me the bright lip looks gorgeous – it really does add some old world glamour and sexy punch.  Is anyone going to give the bright lip a go this year?
