Lipstick Lovers, It Looks Like Fall Is About to Get Interesting

We lipstick lovers know there’s something extra powerful about the beauty staple. It’s pretty much the only product that’ll change our mood in just one swipe. We’ll reach for our favorite shade at the end of a particularly grueling workday and immediately go from wondering how fast we can put sweatpants on to thinking, Okay, maybe just one drink. So we were more than excited that after seasons of sheer balms and tints, there were real lip trends on the spring/summer runways—colors, textures, statements.

“It’s an exciting time for makeup and fashion right now, because the industry is all about choice and celebrating the individual,” says makeup artist Brit Cochran. “There are times where bold lips are absolutely worn to make a statement. But there are many other times when women want to wear fuss-free makeup. It’s a beautiful thing that we’re empowered to choose which face to put forward each day.”

We teamed up with NARS Cosmetics to break down our favorite lip trends that are soon to be everywhere. All that's left is determining which you'll try first, using the brand's new Powermatte Lip Pigment. The best part? These lippies don't budge, so you can wear your favorite bold shades without being worried that they'll smudge off.
