Heavy metal lovers and '90s babies everywhere know all about frosty lips. It was the marker of a "cool girl" and a bit edgy at some points in fashion history, but it's one trend that always comes back around. Finally, we can get our glam on again. Here's all the metallic liquid lipsticks you can buy right now.
Glitter, metallics, and shiny things are back. We had a long love affair with liquid lipsticks, but matte finishes are so 2015. Now beauty influencers like makeup artist Pat McGrath and beauty business mogul Kylie Jenner are bringing glitter and metallic lips to the forefront with innovative products and really cool colors. And you don't have to pay big bucks online or shop a speciality flagship store — you can get a cool metallic lipstick with great formulation at the drugstore. What a time to be alive, right?
Fancy, edgy, rocker chic lips are way more wearable than you might think. Most formulas have a soft, pearly sheen that isn't chunky. Some, like McGrath's lip kits, can be played up or down depending on your mood and event. I like to pair a bold lip with understated eyes, or a classic wing — but you do you, boo.
