Would you wear chalk on your lips?

Okay, not chalk exactly, but what about chalky lipstick? One step past the nude lip is the growing trend of chalky lips as seen on stars such as Rebecca Romijn, Vanessa Williams and Debra Messing. The look is a little mod, but also a little morbid. I guess I'm just not used to seeing lips so devoid of color and shine.

The verdict is still out for me. I don't think it looks bad on these ladies – but not everyone has a professional makeup artist to perfect the look on them. The key is to compensate in other areas for what you're lacking on the lips. Notice how Debra Messing worked smoky eyes, Vanessa Williams an allover bronze glow, and Rebecca Romijn bright pink cheeks and full dark lashes. If you want to avoid looking like a corpse (which you do), incorporating color and life into the rest of the face is crucial.

For those of you feeling adventurous enough to try this trend – I'll admit I'm still not there yet – here are a few good lipstick options available in colors for most skin tones: Clarins Le Rouge Sheer Lipstick (left); Lorac Cream Lipstick (center); Laura Mercier Lip Color Creme (right)

What about you? Would you chalk it up on your lips?
