I was just having fun playing around with some products that I normally don’t get to use in my everyday looks. One of my favourites is this highly pigmented copper lipstick, Sephora Collection Rouge Shine Lipstick No. 17.
Depending on what you’re going for, this copper can be used to add a little bit of shimmer or it can take center stage. The best thing about this lipstick is its versatility; I especially love dotting this in the middle of a pink or red lip. Here, I went full out with the copper lipstick, and used a bright fuchsia (my beloved Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense No. 36 Satin Fuchsia) to line the edge and inside center of the lips, blending slightly inwards to create dimensionality.
Unfortunately, this color was a limited edition from a few years back (as you can see on their website, they skip from No. 16 to 18!) and they never issued a similar product. If you’re looking for a similar metallic, No. 1 Honeymoon from the same line has the same high shine, although it is nowhere as saturated as No. 17. The most pigmented and truely metallic lipstick right now is Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Intense 17 Pearly Gold, which is a longer wearing but less creamy formula than Sephora’s. But both lipsticks have the same color code number, so it has to be a sign!
Do you have a favourite metallic lipstick? Would you wear this look on a regular day around town or for parties only?
