Lipsticks and stains are quickly taking over the makeup industry, and there seems to be just about every shade of every color available for purchase. Just last week, Kylie Jenner (The Queen of Bold Lips) released two new LipKit colors in honor of the Fourth of July. The shades are both shades of blue; Skylie is a sky blue and Freedom is a navy blue.
Now I don’t know about you, but these colors are shades that I never dreamed of putting on my lips. I love rocking intense makeup, I like to think that it gives me that edge without having to actually act like I have one. Let’s face it and get this out in the open, I’m a baby and still call my mom to help with literally everything. So bold lips ‘toughen me up’ on the outside so to speak.
This was the first ever bold lip I tried. It’s Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina, and to this day it is still one of my favorites.
After receiving so many compliments on my first bold lippie, I decided to go bolder. Why not? This shade is Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Bang and I LOVE it! I wear it all the time.
After the confidence boost Bang gave me, I thought I’d go even darker. Pictured here is Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Moshpit. Another one of my favorites, whoever said that dark lipstick is just for the fall is a total LIAR.
Then one day I must have either lost my mind or started something I didn’t know I had in me by buying Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Echo, just like Kylie’s navy blue shade Freedom. And it is hands down my favorite bold lip to rock.
People always tell me that they wish they could wear the lip colors that I now regularly wear, and my response is the same every time. Just do it. Anyone can wear whatever color they want, but you have to be confident that you look like Kylie Jenner with her full, voluptuous lips and rock the heck out of it!
What’s your favorite bold lip shade?
