You probably think you’ve found the perfect lipstick. It has staying power, it’s the perfect color and you know exactly where to find it. Or, maybe during the holidays or a special event, you pick up a new color that you consider funky. Although you can rock both with confidence, you haven’t seen anything yet.
It’s not surprising a kid came up with the latest trend that’s sure to saturate the club scene over the next year. Violent Lip Tattoos are just what they sound like, and might be the answer to your dull lip routine. After all, you deserve a little excitement after a day of shopping for automated blinds or trudging away at the office. Lip tats are affordable, easy to apply and very, very addictive.
How They Work
Remember those temporary tattoos you stuck on your arm as a child? These are the exact same thing, except they’re made for your lips. They come in a variety of colors and patterns including the American flag and a number of different colors of glitter. These tattoos are lip shaped and can be trimmed to perfectly match the shape and size of your own lips.
Simply trim and apply these tattoos with water and they’re guaranteed to stay for at least 24 hours. They’re 100 percent kiss-, water- and rub-proof. You can remove them by rubbing a little oil onto your lips and simply peeling them off. The removal process is a little strange looking the first time, but you’ll get used to it.
Are People Really Doing This?
Yes. You can find Violent Lips Tattoos at Sephora or online. They cost around $12 and you can even wear lip gloss on top of them without risking an early removal.
Although these tattoos also feel a little strange during the first wear, the feeling quickly subsides. If you’ve seen celebrities sporting intricate lipstick, there’s a good chance they were actually wearing tattoos.
America’s Next Top Model the “British invasion” famously had the models wearing American flags and the Union Jack on their lips. The look was striking and had many viewers Googling ways to copy the look. I’m sure some makeup pros and cosmetology school students can perfectly replicate it, but the much easier (and long lasting) option is simply picking up some tattoos.
Is it all Hype?
This is likely a trend that will come and go, just like anything else sensational. If you want to give it a try, hop on the bandwagon now. Choose a fitting occasion, such as a raucous girl’s night out, and give it your best shot. Just be careful, because it’s easy to get addicted to never having to reapply your lipstick throughout the night.
