MATTE NEON LIPS

THE INSPIRATION:
I love this new neon lip color trend, and can tell it's going to be super IN for Spring 2011!
But, I'm impatient and can't wait six months for spring to come so I'm jumping right in!
 I haven't been looking for my perfect neon pink lipstick yet but knew I had a variety of colors in my collection I could experiment with to create a similar look.  
I recently bought a couple new Revlon lip-stains. One is definitely wearable (Twilight) and the other (Flame) is FIERCE and is a deep, neon, coraly orange hue. I thought If I mixed that with a very pigmented, bright pink it could work.

HERE'S WHAT I CAME UP WITH:
THE TWO PRODUCTS I USED
-REVLON'S JUST BITTEN IN "FIERCE"
-BOBBI BROWN'S POT ROUGE FOR LIPS AND CHEEKS IN "CALYPSO CORAL"
(START WITH BARE LIPS)
CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY LINE AND FILL IN LIPS WITH LIP STAIN

WITH YOUR FINGERTIP, TAKE ONLY A SMALL SWIPE OF THE POT ROUGE 
APPLY THE POT ROUGE IN A PATTING MOTION RATHER THAN SMEARING IT
TA DAH!
THOUGH, I THINK THE COLOR IN THE FIRST PHOTO WAS MORE ACCURATE :)
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A FABULOUS WEEKEND!

  1. I've been seeing a lot of the NEON lips on a number of supermodels.

    I think it looks cool but I would never wear it as it's too bright. I don't feel confortable wearing somethat super bright on my lips.

    I think NEON lips are great on people with a quiky personality and style.

  4. The color on the model above looks exactly like MAC's Pink Nouveau. Its a cream finish so there's no shine! Pair it with Revlons Just Bitten lipstain in Passion. Looks identical! I did a blog post on pinks a month ago. Its a great alternative to a red lip for fall.

    *The color on you looks a little more red, still pretty but different.

  15. This is ingenious! I'm a huge fan of lip stains, but I don't hear many other beauty gurus talking about them, or giving recommendations. Thanks for showing us another quick tip!
