I have zero skills when it comes to wearing edgy lipstick, unlike the wondrous Rihanna who slapped on some baby blue slap on her lips at the London launch of her new fashion collection. Whenever I wear non-traditional shades like blue or when I HAD to have this black YSL lip gloss that cost like 35 bucks and sold out right away that I put on all the time and then remove all the time. It’s the “Lemme wear this lipgloss for 30 seconds before I remove it” game!” and don’t suggest I mix it with another shade, because it gets muddy like whoa. I was super obsessed with getting the Hello, Sailor from Lipstick Queen that was sold at Barney’s for a while but after watching you tube videos I realized it was just sort of pink, and not a deep navy blue at all.
Because I so need another lipstick shade in my makeup bag I will never wear.
Let’s face it, Rihanna is gorgeous no matter what color lipstick she wears and I think that has a lot to do with it. She has flawless skin and amazing bone structure so she would probably look foxy in any lipstick… where I would just look weird. But if you guys are wearing blue lipstick tell me all about it and how you make it work and maybe I will give my black another go. I think with any edgy lipstick you have to go super neutral on the eyes or else look exactly like Rihanna.. which is impossible for us mere mortals.
