Two Toned Lips

If you want to see what the two colour lip could look like (a trend I’ve mentioned in earlier posts), click on any of these links:

Apparently it is called a two-toned lip and has been seen at a couple of fashion shows this year.  There is some interesting information and comments on the look. ELF also suggest you could create the look with two of their products Party Pink and Fiery Fushia. I think this is a look for barbeques on the beach and hot holidays. What do you think?

Going back to the Barry M blue lip, I mentioned it on the FashionFace website and PixiWoo doesn’t think blue lips will catch on and if there is anybody that knows, it would be them! http://pixiwoo.blogspot.com/2010/01/courtney-love-request.html 

Maybe it is a season thing again, blue lips suggest winter to me. Could it be the wrong time of year for a blue lipstick? Do you wear certain colours during certain seasons? Have you encountered blue lips before?

Don’t forget, I’d love you to comment, subscribe and enter my competition. See the competition post for more . . !

  1. No — don’t like it — when it’s bold upper lip AND another bold colour on lower lip, I think it looks naff.

    Maybe if the contrast was a bit more subtle or there was a bit of an blending from one colour into the other it would look better, but the one on the ELF post I thought was just yuk.

    What do YOU think about it?

    • Me, ever the dreamer, likes the idea. I think it looks different and interesting but on a models lips and with a proper photographer taking the picture, it’s artificial. I think it would be a gorgeous look if everything else was groomed and styled to complement whatever is on the lips. For catwalks and such like, it just adds to the show and certainly adds interest but in every day life, most of us don’t have thousands to spend on one look so the two tone could look overdone (even when we’re dressed up) and it would probably look a bit out of place. Maybe one colour in two slightly different shades may help with shaping your lips etc and that would be better received by the mass market.
      I am tempted to buy the elf combo though just to see . . ! ;-)
