Add Some Glitz To Your Lips
Welcome to day two of #GlitterWeek! I’ve been so excited to share this one with you! It’s probably my absolutely favourite way to rock the NYX Face & Body Glitter, and also the easiest. We’re talking about GLITTER LIPS!!!!
Just simply pat some of the sparkling pigment over wet liquid lipstick and watch it transform! In the spirit of Christmas, I used the Sephora Mini Cream Lip Stain in Always Red and applied a copper glitter over the top, creating a super shimmery, somewhat metallic-like finish.
The best part is it’s fairly long wearing! I went about eight hours and it even survived salad and pasta (both of which were pretty oily) and a glass of wine! It is definitely not kiss proof though, so just be cautious of who you smooch under the mistletoe or when the clock strikes midnight on New Years.
I have found it works best if you do one lip at a time, so the product underneath doesn’t dry before you have time to apply the sparkles. You really want to make sure the pigment has something to grab onto so it stays in place. The most effective way to apply the glitter is with a clean finger, which seems to pick up and distribute the product evenly, without losing any colour intensity.
I’m absolutely obsessed with the ruby red slippers effect! I wish it were acceptable to wear this lip every day, but unfortunately I don’t think it is overly office appropriate. And in my case, I’m not sure my dog would really care about my glitter lips during the four days I work from home. Regardless, I think it’s super festive and perfect to wear during the holidays.
