The Rose Gold Lip Combo

I've really been loving this whole metallic trend that's been going on lately. Metallic lips were something that I'd left back in the early noughties with my super sparkly glosses from the drugstore and questionably formulated hair glitter. I started getting back into it at the beginning of this year and it's been a bit of a love affair ever since.

As I'm sure a lot of you have seen, most brands are releasing their own versions of metallic lip products, be they glosses or lipsticks. You can, however, achieve a variety of metallic lips using only one lipstick as a topper. I've been playing around with the Jouer Long Lasting Lip Crème in Pamplemousse, a champagney gold metallic lipstick that looks absolutely stunning both in the tube and on the lips. Although this is a matte liquid lipstick, it works really well on other products that aren't necessarily as dry in formula.

It took a little trial and error, but I eventually found a lovely combo that led to a metallic rose gold lip. First I use the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Zurich all over my lips, which is a gorgeous pinky nude shade. Then I use a tiny bit of the Jouer, dabbed over the NYX and I blend the two together slightly using my fingers. Voilà, it's that easy.

I absolutely love this for days where I'm going for a more simple makeup look, because it is technically a nude lip, but it definitely adds a little something extra. As an added bonus, because this isn't ultra matte, the metallic sheen really adds dimension to the lips, making them look fuller than they are.

If you fancy trying out a metallic pout, but don't want anything too crazy, this is a great method to try! I'll definitely be testing this out with some of my deeper shades for autumn too and seeing how that looks. Have you tried metallic lipstick?

Don't forget to follow along!
