I was out doing a spot of shopping a few weeks back and found myself having a giggle at the fashion. Not because it was bad, but because I'd officially become my mother and seen it all before. Denim jackets, dungarees, long floaty skirts, a-line dresses, bodysuits. It was like stepping into my mid-nineties/early-2000s wardrobe. As I took said floaty skirt and denim jacket up to the counter I mentioned my observation to the young fella behind it and he shrugged it off with 'fashion is cyclical, it all comes round again every twenty years'. Astute lad, that.
It goes a long way to explain though why there's been a resurgence in metallic lipstick. It gives me wicked 90s vibes. But, dare I say it, it seems this go round it's a little more elegant than the pink frosted tones of back in the day.
Even the Urban Decay Game of Thrones collab is in on the trend with a couple of metallic lips in the mix. And while I swore off going down the metallic lips route when it first took off once more... this Cersei Lannister shade is giving me a case of the needs.
Prefer a more daring look? Metallic lips has your kissers covered. MonCATS Beauty is rocking the shade 'Kale' from Bite Beauty.
What we appreciate about this look is that you can keep it subtle my applying your usual lipstick then dabbing a little metallic nude lippy in the centre of your lips and blending it out at the edges, or you can go the whole hog and go full metal your mouth.
So what say you, beauties? Are you mad for metallics or is this one trend that needs to be melted down?
