Will Obvious Lip Liner Return? In W, It Already Has

The May issue of W has a '60s-inspired photo shoot that's inspired by one of my least favorite beauty icons, Brigitte Bardot. (Yes, she was physically attractive, but five indictments for "inciting racial hatred" spoil it for me.) Model Lara Stone shares her trademark gap-toothed pout as always, but this time it's haloed with that '90s throwback look: dark lip liner surrounding pale lipstick.

Fashion editorials usually push the boundaries, so don't expect this style to roar back for everyday wear anytime soon. Then again, I wouldn't have thought that acid wash jeans would be the hot style for PYTs, either, so what do I know? I'll enjoy seeing this look in magazines, but for real life, I'll pass. And you?

Love Brigitte. I don't like to highlight my lips but obvious lip liner is oddly appealing. Like staring at a trainwreck or something.

She looks pretty in that pic Eveday. And her hands look elegant here, but creey in the first pic.

*They look normal here -- long-fingered, but normal. I meant in the picture I posted they look normal.

About her hands...they look especially creepy here but maybe that's because of the angle (or photoshop). They look normal here -- long-fingered, but normal.

That picture is just hideous. I have never stopped seeing some women wearing it. My cousin still does!

The entire look is really ugly and severe. What concerns me are her hands. Did you see her fingers? Is that for real? 'Cause, wow, creepy.

Horrifyingly disastrous. And spreads like this make me hate the clothes and the designer - if your stuff is good, create a good ad!

Her fingers are beyond elegant. Personally, I find them to be pushing "creepy." And that lip liner will never return. I hope.

this was on Photoshop Disasters so I'm guessing those 'elegant' fingers aren't entirely natural... but if so, total case of man hands.

Please tell me NO!!! I hate hate HATE the visible lipliner look. One of the worst beauty trends that I can think of. I'm not much of a lipliner girl at all, actually.

I will personally take it upon my self to slap anyone upside the head who I see wearing blatantly obvious lip liner. This can not come to be!!!
