The world of beauty is one that is incredibly overwhelming, I’ll admit. No matter what you’re on the hunt for, if you walk into your local beauty shop, you become instantly swamped with choices. Of course, for foundations or concealers there are certain colors that will look great on you and match your skin tone, but for more creative things like eyeliners and lipsticks, it’s a whole other world of choices.
You walk over to a stand with tons of different lip colors—nudes, pinks, corals, reds, berries—and they all start to blend together into one giant blob of ordinary lip color that everyone and their mother sports. That is until *gasp* you see that one color that sticks out from all the others. It’s different, something you’ve never seen on anyone else’s lips and you know it’s one you need to try on.
These unconventional lipstick colors are something that will truly have you standing out from the crowd. Whether you’ve always been one to march by the beat of your own drum or you’re starting to branch out and try new things, a green, blue, black, purple or yellow will have you truly looking like an original.
Navigating the world of unique colored lipsticks can be a tough one. You’re not sure what’s too much and what’s just enough. You aren’t sure what to pair with it. It’s a whole separate world of choices when it comes to choosing. Luckily, you have me and I’m here to round up some of the coolest unconventional lipsticks for the girl who truly couldn’t give a damn about what everyone thinks of them.
Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in “Coven”
Kat Von D is basically the queen of unconventional lipsticks. Her lipstick line features some seriously unique shades from this lavender purple to a chocolate brown or even a shimmery black. “Coven” is truly the perfect shade to wear on it’s own or even to use to create the perfect purple ombre lip.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in “Potion”
Since fall is rolling in, this liquid lipstick is one that simply needs to make it’s way onto your vanity. “Potion” is the perfect cool-toned-almost-gray purple that will make you instantly look super badass with the swipe of the wand. Not to mention, this one was at the top of my list of the best liquid lipsticks because of its full coverage, pigmentation and longevity.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in “Echo”
Like I said, Kat Von D knows a thing or two (okay, she knows everything) about an unorthodox lip color. From deep blacks to funky purples and even this navy blue shade, these lipsticks last incredibly long and come in literally the most incredible variation of shades.
If you aren’t one for super bright shades, you’ll love this lip color. It will add the perfect amount of something interesting to your lips without getting too cray cray. On it’s own, this Lipstick Queen lip color will leave your lips looking like a luscious brick of gold. Even better, this shade is sheer enough that it can be layered on top of your favorite everyday color or even one of the other unconventional shades mentioned. Multitasking at its finest.
NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in “Stone Fox”
If you’ve never heard the term “stone fox” it basically means someone who is super fine and pretty much perfect in all ways (think Ryan Gosling) and this lipstick itself can really transform you into just that. Because of it’s grey tones, this cream lipstick will pair perfectly with a more colorful eye and can be the perfect lip color to match any outfit you’ll be donning this fall.
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in “Dirty Money”
I mean, even the same of this shade is badass. Just imagine how fierce you’d look rocking this lip. “Dirty Money” has to be one of the most original lipstick shades that you truly cannot find anything else like anywhere else. Yes, we’ve seen greens but this shade is truly like no other.
Ka’Oir Cosmetics Lipstick in “Banana Milkshake”
If you’re really feeling like making a bold statement with your lipstick, “Banana Milkshake” by Ka’Oir Cosmetics will be calling your name. If you’re rocking this baby on your lips, everyone will truly be envious of your confidence because let’s be honest, you have to have some serious cajones to step out of the house with this on your lips.
