If we cast back to the fall runways shown in Spring, one of the looks being touted was the blurred lip – this is what beauty trend followers should be doing around about now.
But, to my mind, it’s not translatable from the catwalk to real-life. Far from admiring your on-trend make-up look, it’s more likely that others will assume you are a) drunk, b) unwell or c) have been at a Raspberry Slushie without the straw.

On some people, it looks amazing – check out Kate from drivelaboutfrivol.blogspot.com – she has it down absolutely perfect. I have a feeling on me, it’ll just look as though I’ve done my lips really badly without a mirror.
But her lips look perfectly neat and tidy, I don’t seen anything remotely “blurry” about her lipstick.
This is no a good look, it’s as though they’ve been snogging in a night club

I definitely wouldn’t feel confident if my lippy was like this!
haha! i so agree. i think i’d be laughed at in the street if i attempted this. i always think it’s cruel of magazines to tell women to do silly things like this.
All I can do is laugh. And try not to smear my lipcolour.
I love a blurred lip! I’ve been wearing it on occasion for the past year! With the right eye make-up I love how it looks, I’m probably crazy but I really do like it!
Im not a fan of this look! Although i know a few people who pull this off well!
I agree with you on this one, on some people it looks okayy but if I did it I’d probably end up looking silly! haha x

Er, slightly catty? I don’t like your tone re things at the minute, sorry.
Not really.. I just don’t think it’s a translatable look without others thinking you’ve made a mistake. Unless others realise this is a *look* then they might think your lipstick had smudged. That said, several commenters have said they’ve seen the look worn really well so maybe it can work. I wouldn’t try it myself though..
Some lipsticks give you that look without even aiming for it!!.. I’m side-eyeing you, Cyber from MAC……
I’m really torn about this look. I think really it’s an exaggeration put on for the catwalks of the easy, no fuss and modern ways of applying make-up – and specifically lipstick. There’s much to be said for not bothering with lip liner to create that perfectly sharp line around the lips, and being more carefree and less ‘perfect’. Perhaps having this in mind when applying a statement lip colour will be a wearable version of this trend.
Yes this is a style that I won’t be partaking in! 🙂
