Having trouble deciding on a metallic lip shade? Choose one that’s different from the colors you already own, but not completely out of your comfort zone!

Instead of a classic neutral, grab a dark red or purple for this weekend. If you swear by one lipstick for everyday wear, try switching to a similar shade with a metallic finish—you’ll feel confident and glowing all day long!
