As my 6 closest girlfriends and I convened in the living room for one last “Girl, how do I look?” session, before a night on the town in DC, I couldn’t help but notice a small, yet significant, similarity between us. Either we all used the same tube of lipstick, or we all have identical taste in make-up. So, I did a little research and there’s definitely a lipstick trend unfolding in 2012 for that “luscious plum lip look” (try saying that 3 times!) From Rihanna to Solange and across to Lady GaGa and model Chanel Iman, many of our favorite kissable cuties are putting the spark back into the darker lipstick shades.
