Top 5 Fall 2014 Lip Colour Trends

Red lips, nude lips, metallic lips… blue fish. #WhateverITried. 

Here at ChickAdvisor HQ, we have researched the top fall 2014 lip colour trends, and for your benefit tried them on ourselves. Though nothing, not even the trends gods, can dissuade me from wearing bright lips every day, there are a few notable products worth trying. 

Let’s start with the most obvious trend and work our way down to the most alarming.  I apologize in advance as I know we are actively enabling your makeup addiction.

The Top 5 Fall Lip Colour Trends:

1. Nude Lips
Every fall, since the dawn of time (or whenever lipstick was invented) Nude lips are one of the strongest fall lip stories.  It’s usually paired with a smokey eye, although this year you can also wear it with bold coloured eyeliner, which I fully support.  Try Maybelline New York Color Show Kohl Liner in Turquoise with Cle de Peau Beaute Extra Rich Lipstick in #101.

2.  Blood Red Lips
This trend will be in style every Fall until you die. If you do not have a blood red lipstick in your makeup collection, go out and buy one now. A bold red lip will make your teeth look whiter and give you a sexy minx like you already are - assuming of course you are taking good care of your teeth and using Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Toothpaste every day (obviously). Try: Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Crimson.  I am obsessed with these lipsticks. 

Hint: You should apply No Bleeding Lips Secret Lipliner before applying any bold colour. 

3. Stained Lips
This trend irritates me a bit because it’s neither here nor there.  I'd rather have bold, in your face lips.  Directions:  Smudge a little bit of your favourite lip colour in the middle of your lips, yawn, mash your lips together, yawn again and there you have it!  It’s a pretty noncommittal look. But if this is your bag, I recommend at least using something fabulous like Shiseido Lacquer Rouge.

4.  No Lips
This is an insult to lipstick.  An insult! Unlike Nude Lips, you aren’t faking wearing nothing, you truly aren’t wearing anything at all.  I forbid it on the basis of being boring.

5. Metallic Lips
Horrors!  While I appreciate the whole “trying something new” angle here, there is a reasonable chance this will make you look freaky.  You might want to consider limiting the number of #selfies you take with this because the Internet is forever.  But I have heard good things about Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar: Metallic.

And there you have it!  Which of these trends do you plan to try?

Natural lips for me most of the time but little pink stain on special occasions

Wearing any kind of makeup is never 100% necessary and is always a choice. If I choose to go without lipstick and just use a plain chapstick then I shouldn't be ridiculed for it. I only wear lipstick on special occasions. And I personally like lip stains as they generally last a long time and they offer just a subtle hint of colour that can really improve your skin colour. I also like the trend of a nude lip colour because you can wear it day to night and it'll still look good. I never like my makeup to look like I'm trying too hard and putting too much on, which a lot of women do. And that's their choice. But I think natural is the way to go with the occasional playful dally in whatever makeup you chose to wear. You just shouldn't feel like you can't leave the house without some beauty product on.

Its great to have such a wide variety of choice. What I wear on my lips depends on the occasion, my outfit, and my mood. A great lip color always completes my look.

Nude lips.. Classic look that suits all.

I always feel like nude lips tend to make me look more tanned and tired, whereas when I put on a reddish or stained lippy, I look more awake and vibrant.

As far as not having a lippy on, that is a complete violation of the Beauty Commandments : Number 1 states that 'thou shalt always wear a lip product when frolicking in nature'.
