Love It or Hate It? Gray Lips at Doo.Ri

Backstage at the Doo.Ri show, lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux revealed the inspiration for this grayscale look. "It's a contradiction between romantic and gothic and punk," he explained. "It's not black-and-white, but there is no color." He used concealer blended with MAC Lip Mix in black to create the sheer gray wash. While it's not a look you'd wear to the office, I thought it was a fresh take on the dark beauty trend. Kind of goth-lite, and vaguely otherworldly. Do you think it's cool?

ugh, it looks like she has cyanide poisoning. Go dark red/purple/black or white out or something else, not grey.

She looks really pale with that shade of lip stick.

Undecided. I like it as a look for the show, but can't see how it could translate to the streets. I'm all for it if it can be done well. Better than black to me.

Now, I don't mind a near-black look, but this is honestly too close to cadaver-ish for comfort. My mother died at home, and I am not kidding when I say her lips were starting to turn a just-slightly-more-blue version of this.

in a fashion show, basically anything goes, but as for it's aesthetic beauty or for walking down the street, it's just ugly...

No. I don't think that very many people could pull this off.

I put love it, but ONLY for the runway. No one should actually go for this trend. No one!

Hate it, but on a side note this model has a doll's face if there ever was one.

If this catches on, it'll definitely be one of those things we'll look back on in 5-10 years and be like, "WHAT WERE WE THINKING?"

Hopefully not a trend that lasts...but fade into the gray (pun intended). Who wants gray beauty? Save this for art, not beauty.

I don't think black or grey belong on lips!
