I have been into lips the past few months. Looking for the perfect mauve pink lip shade and then lip tint. My sister-in-law just introduced me to the new Korean lip trend. I don't know if it is new or not, but it is new to me. It is the natural bitten lip look.
What it is is use a lip tint or an opaque lipstick, then use a sponge applicator to smudge out the edges to give your lips the natural bitten look.

The shade my sister-in-law gave me is Fillmore which is a coral pink shade.
One side is a regular lipstick
One side is a sponge applicator
It is very opaque but non-drying. It is a very vibrant coral pink shade.
When you use the sponge to smudge it out a bit, it gives a very natural shade. It is not an actual tint but I find it does stay on my lips for quite a long time.

I am still playing around with this new concept and obviously need more practice to get the bitten look or the gradient look. But I think with a darker lipstick, the results will be more obvious.
Korean makeup is always a few steps ahead. Their BB/CC cream trend, their foundation cushion and now this bitten lip trend.
Do you like this new lip trend?
