11 Ways To Up Your Statement Lipstick Game

Classic red is your gateway lipstick to brighter, better colors.

Posted on

1. Radioactive Orange

It's a great splash of color for spring/summer -- just make sure you have super white teeth, because it does bring out any yellow! And if you find the color washes you out, just add a layer of magenta lipstick to get more a burnt orange (yet still vibrant) look.

Try: Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in A-Go-Go, $19.


8. Rhinestone

Whether you first saw it on Latrice Royale from RuPaul's Drag Race or Dior's Spring 2013 show, this look, while by far the most high maintenance on this list, is the touch of drama you need for any performance or fashion show (FIT students, take note!)

11. Temporary Lip Tattoos

Back in 2011, Jessie J dressed her lips appropriately for her Britain's Got Talent performance and people have been inspired ever since. From polka dots to cheetah spots to other national flags, there are tons of options to make heads turn at the next party you attend.

Try: Violent Lips Lip Tattoos, $5 ($10 after sale ends.)
