Unconventional lip colors have been embraced almost as much as your traditional red, pink and neutral lipsticks. As much as we’re into green, purple and blue lipstick, the one color that we still haven’t fully embraced is gray. Even rainbow lipstick lovers tend to avoid it because it’s just a bit too, well, gray. That’s about to change because Kat Von D has launched the Smoke and Mirrors Mini Duo ($20) that demonstrates how fabulous gray lipstick can be.
The duo features two gray Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks that you can wear individually or layer to create a cool grayscale ombre lip.
The lighter of the two shades is Dagger. It’s a cool, dusty periwinkle gray. The hints of purple and blue in it will appeal to those who love a dusty mauve lip. Black lipstick lovers will be thrilled with Woolf, a deep stone gray that’s a few shades lighter than black.
In true Everlasting Liquid Lipstick form, Dagger and Wolf are both heavily pigmented and the formulas are super long wearing. They also dry to a proper matte finish but provide comfortable wear thanks to the nourishing vitamin E and sunflower seed oil.
Want to give them a try? You can pick up the Smoke & Mirrors Duo online at Sephora.com right now. If you prefer to swatch and shop in store, the Kat Von D Mini Lip Duo will launch in in Sephora stores on July 28.
