Trends in lipsticks for 2016-2017

Red and black

Ah lipstick! It’s made to bring out your pout and give your lips instant character. This season, the quintessential female cosmetic comes in colours so intense they just might outshine the eyes. Let’s take a look at the fall and winter trends.

A passion for red

Red, bold, crisp lips are here to stay. They’re delectable and so very, very sexy. For a totally on-trend look, you’ll want bright, ultra-pigmented reds. Our beauty tip: let nature guide you to your new favourite hue: cherry, raspberry, cranberry, goji berry or pomegranate. You’ll be “berry” glad you did! For a sassy, seductive effect, wear your red with a lustrous lip lacquer or gloss. And then watch the snow melt and the mercury rise as you walk by this winter

Good to know!
While matte is still in vogue, the ultra-wet lip is standing out as one of the season’s hot trends. It’ll make your lips look like ripe, freshly picked fruit that will tempt your partner into taking a bite! Just to be safe, better choose a long-wear product!

A jaunt to the dark side

Black lips have been spotted on the runways of some of the planet’s biggest designer houses – think Louis Vuitton and Dior. That’s right, models were seen rocking the mysterious gothic pout with its touch of insolence. Paired with a pale, flawless complexion, the audacious look is dramatic and bewitching. But let’s be realistic: would you really wear it to the office?! A solution is to choose a dark hue with a hint of purple. Our suggestions include magenta, plum, raisin, eggplant, blackberry, wine, Bordeaux or burgundy.  The choice is yours

Good to know!
If the enamel on your teeth is off-white, avoid shades of violet and blue (plum, violet, purple, indigo, etc.). Go for warm tones instead. Here are a few ideas for you: carmine, poppy, brick, orange, coral or fuchsia. The colours available are almost limitless. Drop by your local Uniprix to discover our vast selection of lipsticks. You will certainly find the perfect tube of rouge for you!

Smokey… lips?

The smokey eye is as popular as ever this season. But what’s this about a smokey lip? If your lips are thinner than you’d like, you will adore this volume-boosting trend. Start by choosing two lipstick and lip liner colours that match to a tee. This means two shades from the same palette. Then, apply the darker liner and lipstick to the contour of your lips. Follow with the lighter shade at the centre. To avoid unsightly lines, gently smudge the colours together with a lip brush. And voilà, your smoking hot smokey lip
