Slay me, Riri. From her edgy-meets-funk style to her killer tattoos, she's basically my badass style idol. If you're crushing like me, here's how to copy Rihanna's blue green lipstick from "Work," because it's hot stuff. Drake was obviously into it. I'm just saying.
Rihanna dropped her latest video with Drake, "Work," online on Monday and it's as spicy as you'd expect. The two meet up in at a dark, reggae-style dive bar for some standard dancing before moving on to a modern, pink-lit private room. In the first scene, Riri is wearing a crop cut with collar jewelry, a see-through mesh jersey dress, rings galore, and some straight up funky aqua lipstick. Classic Rihanna.
Blue-green lips are the marking of any edgy girl. From Kylie Jenner to Rihanna, we've seen this color on only the coolest of celebs. It can give a metallic sheen to your pout, packing a serious style punch. We, of course, can expect nothing left from Rihanna. If you're looking to experiment with lip products, take her lead. Lipstick doesn't just have to be conventionally "pretty." Unconventional colors are a statement, an act of expression, and just plain ole fashioned fun. Go for it!
Here are a few of my favorite blue-green lip shades to try out.
1. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dirty Money
With a name like "Dirty Money," there's no doubt Riri would approve.
2. NYX Cosmetics Wicked Lippie in Risque
Flecks of glitter give this formula a metallic sheen.
3. ColourPop Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Dr. M.
Even though this dries matte, there is still a reflective quality that is irresistible.
4. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Plan 9
This glittering, green lip with olive undertones is super edgy. If you want to make the green more blue, brown, or black, use a lip liner first.
5. OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Maui
If you want a brighter pout, perfect for spring — this is it.
6. Lime Crime Carousel Gloss in Hollygram
Lime Crime Carousel Gloss in Hollygram, $7, Lime Crime
Lime Crime has a glossy formulation with high shine, if matte lips aren't your thing!
7. OCC Lip Tar/RTW in Derelict
Glitter is back. Flecks of gold make this olive green lip extra alluring.
