25 Unexpected Shades of Lipstick ...


I love coming across really bold, unexpected shades of lipstick.

I can't pull off all the ones I love, and they aren't all practical to try, but every once in a while I'll stumble upon a new style or idea that I know would be perfect for me.

I always have to try it!

If you're looking for some truly unexpected shades of lipstick, I've got you covered!

Done subtly, this actually could be a day to day look, and there are even lipsticks to help you do it.

For special occasions and fun parties, however, go bold – I love the pink and the galactic black, especially.

This is such a vibrant, pretty look!

Even if you couldn't manage the yellow during the day, a mix of pink, coral, and red could easily work.
