Not every trend that comes down the runway translates for everyday life and to be honest, we pegged grey lips as one of those sensations. Grey lips were recently introduced at the Doo.Ri Spring fashion show and now, retailers are investing in the look.
Fashionista reports that Estee Lauder has a gray lipstick coming out this Fall:
Estee Lauder’s version, while it looks scary in the tube, is actually a “luminizer” –meaning it’s meant to be layered over another lipstick. It adds a bit of shine and shimmer and can tone down a super bright color, making it more seasonally appropriate. I tried it on its own, adding it on top of a colorless lip liner in cautious swipes, and I didn’t hate what I saw. It has a bit of a dark 90s vibe but with a little shimmer to soften it up.
Glamazons Blog featured MAC Grey Friday, which went on sale today:
Our beloved friends at MAC announced that they are releasing a “Grey Friday” lipstick and nail polish set, which will be available Black Friday on MAC’s website and at the NYC MAC Times Square location.
Though celebrities like Ke$ha have embraced the look, others feel it is too odd for everyday use.
