A New Take On Ombre — Now Coming To A Kisser Near You?

Many of you seem to be tiring of ombre hair, and we get that. Personally, we're not ready to abandon the trend altogether — and this iteration may reignite the flame all over again. We've seen ombre lips on the runway and around the Internet before, but this brought them back to mind. What's interesting about the look is the added benefit of contouring, in addition to showing off your serious lipstick skills. Particularly if you use a horizontal gradient with darker edges, you'll create the illusion of fuller, permanently-pursed lips. StyleList shared an instructional video with some helpful tips to get it at home:

While we're not opposed to the end result — we're especially intrigued by the version with a hot pink inner lining — this does seem a bit high maintenance. What do you think, would you try it?
