A Few of My Favorite Unconventional Lipsticks + Tips On How To Wear Them

Unless you were born gravitating toward bold or alternative makeup styles, at some point in your life you’ve probably wistfully gazed at an out-of-the-ordinary lip color and thought “ugh, I wish I could wear that.” Maybe you feel like it’s too daring for you, maybe you work in a conservative environment or have people in your life that would make rude remarks about your choices, or possibly it’s the concern I hear all the time “I’m too old for that.” Um, first of all, you’re not. You can wear whatever makes you feel good about yourself at any age, provided it’s on your own time. That’s true of all of the other reasons people have for not wearing what they want to wear. At the end of the day, it’s not that big of a deal, makeup washes off. But something that is a big deal is you feeling confident and powerful enough to wear the things that you love, that show the world who you are. Clearly I have some strong feelings about makeup, and trust me, I could go on about this for quite awhile, but that’s not the point of this post. Today I’m sharing a round up of some of my favorite unconventional shades of lipstick and lip gloss in hopes of helping you find something that you’ll love. I’ll also share some of my tips for wearing unconventional colors that will be helpful whether you’re a dabbler or a first-timer in these bold hues.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review: Has Urban Decay Finally Hit All The Right Notes?

Urban Decay has been my favorite makeup brand for over 10 years, but I, like many others, have been critical of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Past problems have included an overabundance of shimmery shades with few mattes to help create a full look, and palettes featuring too many of the same tones, thus reducing the number of looks that could be created. UD has clearly been listening to our criticism by the looks of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, but did they finally get it right or is there still something lacking? Today, I’m giving you an in-depth review of the palette, as well as what I would have done differently if I had designed this palette.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Swatch and Review

Since I was about 13 or 14 Urban Decay has been my ride-or-die brand. The edgy packaging, the cheeky names, the variety of colors and glittery neutrals, it’s always just been the brand I felt most connected with, especially when I was disappointed by drugstore products that looked colorful and glittery in the package but performed like absolute trash. Thankfully, drugstore products have come a long way since then and many of them match or even outperform their high-end counterparts. Still, Urban Decay will always be special to me because they helped inspire my love of makeup. Considering my love for the brand, it was a given that I’d pick up some of the new Vice Liquid Lipsticks when they launched, especially with all of the hype surrounding these. Waterproof, transfer proof, comfortable liquid lipstick? Sign me up! Did these live up to the hype? Check out my wear-test and review to find out!
