As summer begins to come to a close, fashion-filled events at New York Fashion Week are just about underway. And, like channeling your best pair of stilettos, rocking a flashy lip is always your best accessory when hitting shows, after-parties and events (or just homeroom, we’re not judging!).
So whether you prefer a subtle gloss or desire an attention-grabbing lip, create that daytime or evening look easily with any of our product picks.
Everyday Basics…NYFW is all about showing your own personal attitude and style, but if you prefer something more sophisticated and polished, a great lip gloss always looks fabulous.
For a charged up pink, try the Covergirl Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Pinkalicious ($7.99, cvs.com) which combines together color, gloss and lip conditioners easily.
Feeling a bit daring? Glaze up your lips with the Avon Electric Lipgloss In Chill ($6, avon.com) which adds a slight blue tint to your pucker.
Or go prim and simple with The Balm! Read My Lips Lip Gloss In Pop ($15, thebalm.com) which delivers a sheer, coral hue.
High Voltage Color….Keep on top of the trends with a vibrant lip that will definitely help you stand out.
For total daring edge, the OCC Unknown Pleasures Lip Tar in Pagan ($18, sephora.com) paints your lips a metallic blackened purple perfect for all those avant-garde events.
Prefer a slightly more subtle lavender instead? Try the Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Flowering Freesia ($17, sephora.com).
For an even safer pick that still packs a punch, try the Maybelline New York Baby Lips Crystal, Lip Balm, Pink Quartz ( $4.49, cvs.com) for that hydrated yet colorful pink lip.
