Shimmery, Grungy '90s Lips: Summer Beauty's Sleeper Hit?

Even though summer is currently awash in happy, vivid corals and pinks, there's another lip trend we've been tracking, too: A modern version of grunge-inspired lips. Mixing deep magenta-red with a little shimmer, they're like the love child of a '90s era Drew Barrymore and Married with Children's Kelly Bundy—another take on the statement lip and the perfect antidote to ODing on brights. Customize your color by blending intense burgundy with plum, then sweeping on pale, sheer shimmer. Take a cue from Karlie Kloss's dark, intense kisser in H&M's fall '11 look book (browse the rest here) and pair your tribute-to-the-nineties lip with extra dark brows and matte skin. So angst-y!
