New Lollipop Lip Color Trend Is VERY Strange

During London’s Fashion Week, audience members noticed an interesting trend walking down the runway.

Entitled the “lollipop lips”, the statement brings a smudged look to bright lipsticks. Make-up artist, Val Garland based her idea off of “Preen girls [who] have been kissing for hours.”

Garland achieved the look by blotting MAC Lipmix in Red and blended a similar color eyeshadow around the edges. Each lip was added with a lip gloss in order to add a perfect shimmer.

Some people refer to the look as “snogging” which, in the UK, means to kiss. To add to the London Fashion Week look, hair stylist Sam McKnight designed a look which he entitled “shag hair”. As we are sure you can imagine, the shag hair makes you look like well…you have been rolling around in the hay for a while.

We guess it must be the "Season of Love!" Insert Rent song here.

 

Personally, we're torn between it looking like a disease and looking like a candied mess gone wrong, and we are not too sure we can confidently say we would step out like this, but to each their own!

 

What do you think? Would you try this look in real life?
