Should we blame “Fifty Shades of Grey” for making grey the ‘It’ color of the year?
Grey makeup has always been a ‘thing’. There’s nothing wrong with a little grey eye shadow or liner to give your eyes that nice, smoky look. We’ve also embraced grey nail polish – in shades ranging from matte to metallic. But grey lipstick? Not so sure about this one. Singer Ke$ha has rocked grey lipstick on the red carpet at the AMA’s and model Chanel Iman also rocked the trend on the runway.
MAC released its ‘Grey Friday‘ limited edition lipstick ($15) on Black Friday (the color is since sold out online but available in the Times Square MAC store) and Estée Lauder also offers a ‘Pure Color Vivid Shine’ Lipstick Luminizer ($25) in gunmetal grey. Everyone’s been buzzing about this new trend. But is it haute or not? And can it be worn off the runway and off the red carpet and in the real world?
