The Unexpected Lipstick Trends You're About To See Everywhere

Is there a makeup product more beloved than lipstick? Some people have their signature color that they swipe on day after day, while others keep a bevy of shades on heavy rotation. If you're part of the latter camp, you're likely constantly searching for the next "it" color you'll wear down to the nub. (And then scrape out its secret compartment, too.)
Well, a new year brings fresh new trends, and 2017's batch is looking extra special. From pink pigments to glossy textures, there'a a whole lot to love about these tubes. Ahead, find some of the prettiest lipstick trends we'll be wearing in 2017. You might want to start adding them to your holiday list ASAP.

Unapologetic Pink
Pink isn't just for the girly-girls of the world anymore. Badass babes are popping on the bold hue, too, reaching for bright, pigmented magentas over sugary-sweet pastels.

Electric Orange
Orange is making a strong comeback, but make no mistake: These are not the safe tomato-red hues of last year. They're bold, true orange shades that make a statement. When in doubt, go super-pigmented.

Glitter Lips
You can thank makeup artist Pat McGrath and her Lust 004 (which, sadly, is no longer available) for ushering in the return of glitter lips. And while patting on loose glitter might not be your thing, there are plenty of sparkle-infused glosses to mimic the look.

'90s Rose
The '90s aren't going anywhere, as evidenced by the muted rose we spotted on the spring 2017 runways. The coolest way to wear this hue is with corresponding eye shadows and blushes for a full, monochromatic look.

2000s Gloss
Last year was all about matte lips, so, inevitably, glossy lips would make a comeback. Any hue will do — from nudes to wines to pinks — as long as the finish is reflective.
