You can’t blame a girl for stepping out of the box when trying lipstick shades that would usually frighten mere mortals. Here are some recent and not so recent examples of celebrities shunning the safe nudes and pinks…
LAVENDER : JESSIE J
PURPLE : JOAN SMALL
TEAL : KE$HA
GREEN : RIHANNA
BLUE GLITTER : LADY GAGA
YELLOW : JENNIFER LOPEZ
Personally, I think it’s great these women can wear these unconventional shades with such confidence. Multi colored hair seems to be the norm these days (think Nicole Richie’s lavender and Katy Perry blue) so why should our lips be left out of the colorful fun??
But now these are celebrities of course, and half of them wear these colors for videos, television, concerts, and red carpet appearances. Would they wear these shades in public going to the grocery store or Target? My guess is no. But I could be wrong, especially when it comes to Lady Gaga! My personal fave off all of these shown would be JLo’s yellow. I can’t believe I’m saying that, but geez that woman can wear anything and look amazing! Joan Small runs a close second with her violet, and well the rest of them look like they caught some sort of virus. The craziest lip look I have ever tried was HERE.
What is your feeling on wearing outrageous lipstick shades? Have you ever strayed from the usual red, pink, or nude?
