BEAUTY BAR: Bold Lips for Summer

It’s impossible to deny the rising trend in bold lipstick colors in recent years. Whether we have Kylie Jenner to thank for that or not is up for debate, though her up-and-coming cosmetic line has received high praise and attention. While the matte lipstick formulas and shades seem unique and reasonably priced to the average college student, another makeup brand is taking lipstick customers by storm: ColourPop.

Thanks to numerous blog posts and YouTube videos discussing their lipstick dupes, the website ColourPop has received much-needed attention. These six dollar matte lip colors are an awesome alternative for any Fashionista struggling to obtain the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit due to the high-popularity and low-quantity the website provides, along with the $15-$29 product prices.

This Fashionista keeps her outfit neutral and simple, so she has freedom to wear whatever bold lipstick color she wants. Wearing a solid color shirt with an off-the-shoulder style keeps the look classic, yet fun. Matching the shirt with a pair of jean shorts and flat sandals is perfect for a casual summer day, though trading the shorts out for a nice pair of colored jeans and heels would dress the outfit up for an evening look.
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: The nude shade on the Fashionista’s lips can be found on ColourPop’s website. This matte lipstick color is best compared to Kylie Cosmetics’ Exposed. Pairing the lipstick with a neutral tone eyeshadow maintains a warm summer look. Aside from the awesome lipstick dupes, ColourPop also provides stunning pigmented shades that are perfect to complete the makeup look on this Fashionista.
