July 29th is National Lipstick day. Can you believe there is a whole day dedicated to those irresistible tiny tubes of beautiful color? It couldn’t have come at a better time, since lipstick has rapidly been regaining popularity in recent months. It’s hard to open a magazine or flip on the television without noticing a bold new lipstick trend. While they were once waxy and drying, lipsticks are now available in a variety of different textures, finishes, and colors. You can find endless lipstick inspiration at your local Sally’s store in the Femme Couture line. Try the tips below to liven up your lips!
Play up a new Texture
Matte lipstick is here to stay. This trend has been everywhere for the past few seasons, but it has proven to be versatile enough to have some lasting power. A matte lip can add serious drama to your look, but it can also be more subdued than an over-the-top glossy pout. Femme Couture’s five new matte shades are launching in August under the long-loved Ultra Hydrating Lip Color line. Unlike other matte lipsticks that can be dry and chalky, these glide on smoothly and leave lips moisturized.
Give your lips a dazzling Finish
Another way to mix up your lipstick look is with a shimmery finish. Femme Couture’s Prime Wear Diamond Color line is made up of 8 shades of glimmering gorgeousness! Since they’re from the Prime Wear line, they have the primer built in for longer-lasting color. They’re also moisturizing, shiny, and give just the right amount of shimmer. My favorite shade for day is Desert Diamond, which enhances my natural lip color and gives just the right amount of shimmer. For evening, I love to play up the drama with Shimmering Sangria, a sophisticated deep wine shade with gold shimmer. These will hit stores on August 1st as well.
Indulge in a Pop of Color
The biggest trend we’ve seen in the warmer months for the past few years has been the bold, bright lip. And I’m not talking about runways and fashion magazines here…this trend has gone mainstream. So stop making excuses and try it! The bright lip is perfect for any occasion, from Sunday brunch to a fun night out on the town with the girls. These lipsticks are in stores now, but just like summer, they won’t be around forever–grab them while you can!
