Last month, super cool nail brand Smith & Cult expanded their beauty offerings with the launch of The Shining Lip Lacquer collection. Featuring 8 shades ($22 each) of super glossy, pretty shades that go on beautifully on their own or over lipstick. They aren’t messy or too sticky and smell so good!
The shade range includes:
THE WARNING – sheer cardinal + gold micro shimmer
THEN QUEEN IS DEAD – sheer aubergine _velvety shimmer
HER NAME BUBBLES – pop + pink
THE LOVERS – melon _ blush pink
HI-SPEED SONNET – ripe melon pink + gold shimmer
LIFE IN PHOTOGRAPHS – baby + pale pink
FADE THE SUN – sweet nectar + velvety/micro shimmer
FLESH RIOT – muted rosette + golden velvety shimmer
I have fairly dark lips so the colors show up but still look natural on (see below one of their darker shades, The Queen is Dead). For a lot of pigment I do a liquid matte lipstick (Stila and Kat Von D have great ones to pair them with!) and put it on top for a high gloss finish.
Smith & Cult also recently launched 3 now nail shades:
BEAT STREET – Opaque deep teal
PORN-A-THON – Opaque rich pastel peach
THE GRADUATE – Opaque rich taupe
