Blue lipstick is totally having a moment. But, if you, like many, are thinking of sitting this one out because you don't want to look like you ate a Smurf, we've got a solution: blue lip gloss. Specifically, this one from Make. It looks like it could be a nail polish color, but trust us when we say that as a lippie, it's brilliant.
It's pretty translucent, so a thin layer of this blue creates a berry-colored sheen. But, build up the color and a cool-toned indigo begins to emerge. What's really fun about this gloss is that it's not a flat blue, but rather a duo-chrome situation of amethyst and sapphire. It shows up that way when applied, too, reflecting different colors in the light.
Initially, we were a little bit worried that a blue lip would make us look like kids who stayed in the pool too long. On the contrary, this lip color makes us feel like super-chic robots. At the end of the day, we think that's a beauty look worth going for.
