Color Block Lips ft. NYC Lip Products

This month, NYC asked us to create a look inspired by Andy Warhol as our monthly Beauty Ambassador challenge. I was inspired by the recent lippies I received from NYC as the colors and quality are amazing!

Andy Warhol's works focuses on pop art which includes popular imagery from media. I wasn't sure how to incorporate that into my makeup look but I did not that his works involved a lot of contrasting color! So with that, I decided to create a color blocked lip.

Products Used:
-NYC Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain 
-NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuschia 447

I started with the liquid lip stain and painted opposite sides of my lips in red. Since the texture is so light and sets right into the lip, I found this to be a great "base" layer"

I filled in the other half of my lip with NYC lipstick in Forever Fuscia. The name is a bit misleading as the color is a bright pink. These lipsticks are super pigmented! Really impressive for the drugstore and a $1.99 price tag.

It's not the most "everyday" wearable look but I thought this was fun and quite unique. It also works well if you use two similar colors, and that way it can definitely be wearable!

Also, check out my recent tutorial that's also very "fun" and out there featuring NYC eyeliner!
