I don’t know about you but I am totally digging the metallic lipstick trend. Now that Fall is on the way I know that I’ll be using them even more. As a single parent, I know that shelling out money for beauty purchases is hard enough without having to guess which product is going to be worth your hard earned dollar. Have no fear! I have literally tried them all! Below I’ve listed my favorite metallic lipsticks and why they’ve made the list.
I am now a huge fan of Colourpop cosmetics and these lippies are partly to blame. They have a huge selection of colors and the formula is to die for. They are extremely lightweight and have great staying power. I wouldn’t say that these are an all day lippie as I’ve found that they do wear off through eating and drinking but it layers well enough after reapplication.
Milani nails it with this Making Me Matte lipstick. It is a gorgeous darker rose gold color that is perfect for any skin tone and a great fall shade to have. I own 6 different metallics from this line and they are all gorgeous. These do last all day and are very lightweight. I find they can be slightly drying but putting a thin layer of chapstick on before application usually fixes that problem. They don’t transfer while eating and drinking, unless eating greasy food and did I mention it’s Vegan. Trust me, you need this lipstick.
Lime Crime is definetely the most unique lipstick brand on this list and it might be my favorite. These lipsticks all smell like marshmello and they have the most unique colors that I’ve ever seen. The staying power on this lipstick is a little lacking so when reapplying I find that it’s best just to fill in what has wiped off, not the entire lip. It doesn’t layer well because the colors are so intense. Despite this, I really think this lipstick is worth trying. It is absolutely the most metallic looking lippie on this list.
If you’re looking for something a little more on the trendy side, you can’t go wrong with the NYX Cosmic Metals line. I love wearing this one with a pink/smokey eye combo. This lipstick wears like a matte. It has a thin consistancy and builds up coverage with layers. This lippie works best with a clear lipliner for extra staying power. (Try Milani Anti-Feathering Lip Liner, Transparent)
Fall wouldn’t be complete without a perfect red lipstick. Smashbox’s Crimson Chrome is an absolute homerun. This red has a perfect blue undertone that is great for light skin tones. One application should last 6-8 hours and provides great coverage. It has a nice lightweight feel and the applicator provides a perfect application everytime.
Being a huge geek, you know that I went out and bought every single shade of this lipstick. They did a really great job on this line too. The formula is extremely moisturizing and the color is completely unique. Plus as an added bonus, the packaging looks uber cute when you take it out for touchups.
Too Faced Cosmetics are pretty amazing but my favorite is this liquified lipstick in Metallic Violet. This applies like gloss and it has a sticky consistency to it but I don’t find it to be too noticable. I can’t really speak to the other colors in this line, as I haven’t tried them myself, but this color is to die for.
If you’re looking for a great drugstore find this lipstick fits the bill. This shade is a muted combo of purple and silver and I think that it works for just about every skin tone. I suggest using a clear lipliner like the Milani lipliner I mentioned above. It gives it a little more staying power. Still even without a liner I find that it gets about 5-6 hours of wear which is pretty good with a traditional lipstick.
My last pick for this list is the Queen Bee lipstick by Lipstick Queen. This shade is amazing on medium to dark skin tones. I find that it does wash out lighter skin tones but it is great as a lip highlight over other lipsticks (which is how I personally use it) It’s a great selection for Fall and the upcoming Holiday season!
